    Default Load external text into scrolling text field

    Hello

    I've got a button with the instance name "btn1" and a scrolling text field with the instance name of "scrolling_txt" and a variable name of "ScrollingText", I need to make the "btn1" load an external text OnRelease with the name of "Welcome.txt" (placed in the same directory as the .swf file) into the scrolling text area, I'm using Flash MX 2004 Professional how do I make it do that?

    Also I can't make my site load.. I've uploaded it to http:\\suicidalsanta.subnet.dk but nothing happends when you enter it.. the background attached in frontpage loads fine but the swf file seems to be stuck, please take a look at the link above, any idea why?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance

    Best regards, SuicidalSanta

    i use flash mx so i'm not real sure on loading external txt into txt field for flash 2004, but you can just put:


    //the instance name should be your dynamic txt field instance name

    instancename.load ("txtfile.txt");

    -------------------------------------------------------
    on the issue of your swf stuck...it looks to me like your swf is not in the same directory as the html file, or is not being called from its correct location.

    I hope i understood your questions, glad i could give my 2 cents.
