Biggest ActionScript N00b ever

Ok so yea I just fell of the turnip truck…

Anyway I’m making this game where this arrow shoots and hits a target and you get points and stuff… ok so now I want the user to be able to input the speed and angle they shoot the arrow at. I think I have the physics down, I just need to know how I can get a user to be able to input say “52” in a text field, and then that gets defined as a variable or something.

If you have questions just ask… sorry I’m such a n00b.
