self scrolling text line with the text from TXT file
Posted on 2001-08-08
Look ppl, i got a task. I need a self scrolling text like marquee in html with the text from txt file.
Now: I can do that when the dinamic text field is in a graphic object so i can get an effect of scrolling text with a simple motion of the textbox under the mask.
Problem: The text in the TXT file sometimes can vary in the size, so i need to control the size of the dinamic textfield from the TXT file with the help of some variable. But then I must have a MovieClip object instead of Graphic object where i put the dinamic text field.
And here is the problem. I cant see the text from the file in the dinamic textfield if it is in MovieClip object :(( what is that?
