I would like to add a simple pop up to my MX 2004 site (with
a link for 'close'). I have a quiz, which does not offer solution
to the answers yet, and I though a pop-up containing the answers
would be the best way to go ahead.
create a movieclip, create a dynamic textfield in that
movieclip, give the textfield an instance name and create your
close button and convert it into a movieclip and give it an
instance name and code for it to remove (removeMovieClip() its
_parent). then right click on the movieclip in your library and
click linkage and assign a linkage id to the movieclip.
whenever you want a popup with text, use attachMovie() to
instantiate your movieclip (with the textfield), assign text to
your textfield and position your movieclip.
