I am a newbie in flash 5. The other day i was trying to do a project using flash to dynamically call external text file (.txt) and loaded the variables data into the dynamic text field .
Everything is fine but except that i couldn’t include the special character “&” (ampersand) in the text file. If i have included it, the rest of the wordings will be truncated.
For example, i have done a flash header that can be dynamically modified using the text file (with the dynamic text field named “mainTag”):
“mainTag = MY NEW SCHOOL PROJECTS”
This loads perfectly in the exported SWF file.
However, if I add in “&”,e.g.
“mainTag = MY NEW SCHOOL PROJECTS & ASSIGNMENTS”
the word “& ASSIGNMENTS” will be left out during the preview of the SWF file.
Is there is any method to solve this problem? Can anybody help out? Thank you all very much in advance.
