Problem with dynamic text and external swf's, help please


When I load one of my external swf’s into my main movie, the dynamic text I have written doesn’t show up. The text is there when I preview the external swf on its own and when it loads the main movie it’s there but can’t be seen for some reason. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong and a way to fix it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Ok, I have a similar problem this is the as for the swf I am trying to load into my main movie

loadVarsText = new loadVars();
//assign a function which fires when the data is loaded:
loadVarsText.onLoad = function(success) {
	if (success) {
		trace("done loading");
		//Now that we know the data is loaded,
		//set the text content of the Text Field
		//with the instance name "scroller" equal to the 
		//contents of the variable
		 scroller.html = true;
scroller.htmlText = this.var1
	} else {
		trace("not loaded");

This is the as to load that swf

onClipEvent (load) {
	loadMovie("", "_root.image_mc");

The text has fonts embedded and no root references in the first swf. I have tried several threads’ solutions and I have come to the conclusion that I have a syntax error that i can’t find or…who knows what. Can someone help me out here. Scotty…you da man!

Can you post your fla’s?


Heya Scotty, It seems to have fixed itself, actually I think it was because my server has some latency on newly uploaded files. How frustrating is that?!

Thanks Scotty, you need a blue suit and a cape!
