Dynamic text box query?

I’ve had to resort to wasting someone’s time as I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m really lame at searching for things. Forgive me in advance if this sounds really dumb!

I’m very new to flash and was wondering if it was possible to target a dynamic text box from an externally loaded txt.

(i.e 2 dynamic text boxes (A and B), of which A.txt is ext. loaded into Box A and contains a link that brings up different txt in Box B.)

Any help or “Ha-ha. You’ve just wasted the past few hours of your life trying to do something totally impossible!” would be much appreciated. :slight_smile:


p.s: Feel free to virtual-KO me if this has been asked before.

Don’t get it…

I don’t really understand what you’re on about, and I don’t know if this is possible, but try making txtbox an html or maybe even fla and on the link have it going to another frame in the movie where txtbox B is also showing, so the link would be:
gotoAndPlay (framenumber in brackets);
I have no idea if that will work, but its worth a go…

You’d need to use the [font=courier new]asfunction[/font] protocol, look it up in the ActionScript Dictionary. :slight_smile:

And by the way, welcome to kirupa forum. :stuck_out_tongue:
