Creating a dynamically updatable moving alert message
Posted on 2003-11-20
I am currently developing a site that requires a dynamic text field to repeatedly scroll(move) across approx. 3/4 of the movie. I've tried to embed a dynamic text field within a movie clip and use a mask but whenever I try that the text field won't pick up the variable from the text file. I've ben able to get what I want using static text but when I tried to make it dynamic the text just wouldn't show up. Has anyone out there done something like this before and if so how?
