Error in scrolling dynamic text box

I am using Flash MX 2004 professional

I followed the tutorial for creating a dynamic text box with a scroll bar. I am getting this error when I test the movie and when I open the swf file I can see the box but the text isn’t loading.

Warning Scene=Scene 1, layer=Actions, frame=1:Line 1: The identifier ‘loadVars’ will not resolve to built-in object ‘LoadVars’ at runtime.
loadText = new loadVars();

Total ActionScript Errors: 1 Reported Errors: 1

I have built other pages that are exactly the same and seem to be working fine. I originally built the .fla on a windows machine with flash mx 2004 and then put it in flash mx 2004 pro on the mac. I’m not sure what the problem is.

loadText = new loadVars();
// creating the loadVarsText function
loadText.onLoad = function() {
scroller.text = this.textField;

Thats the actionscript on my actions layer.

Anyone that has any idea whats going on please let me know. Thanks.


Instead of loadVars use LoadVars.

LoL tis amazing how one little letter can cause hours and hours of frustration. Thank you.
