A system I use has a simple api for pulling data from it. I need to be able to alter Text in my flash file with data retrieved from an API call. Does anyone have a link handy to a tutorial on how to do this.
use a dynamic textfield and assign your new text using the textfield's text property:
your_tf.text = "new text";
to load data, use the loadvars class:
var receiveLV:LoadVars=new LoadVars();
var sendLV:LoadVars=new LoadVars();
your_tf.text = src;
Thank you - that worked perfectly. I did not realize my type needed to be 'Dynamic'. Lesson learned.
