good… that’s the really dynamic way of doing it.
So… you’ve got a text file, I assume it has been formated correctly, but for the sake of newbies reading this, I’ll go over external text imported into Flash.
You can create text to be imported into Flash with a basic text editor, with the following format
&myFirstVariable=This is the text of my first variable&mySecondVariable=This is the text of my Second variable&myThirdVariable=This is the text of my Third variable&
we use & symbols at the beginning of each variable name, and then an equal sign to denote what the variable is equal too.
In this example we’ll say that we saved this as
“externalVariables.txt” and we’ve placed it in the same folder as the swf that is going to load it.
Now in the swf… in the first frame of the main timeline
this loads the txt file into the flash movie.
Now taking into account my post above, we could use this on the buttons.
The variables have been placed in the root timeline.
