I am tring to get the text to change color on rollover.  However, the below function is not working as desired.  Ideally, I would like to loop through each movieclip to be able to create a rollover color for each.



for (i=0; i<3; i++) {
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("menuName"+i, 600+i);
      eval("_root.menuName"+i).createTextField("recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt", 501+i, 435, 45+(i*17), 140, 20);
      eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").html = true;
      eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").htmlText = _"hello world";
      myFormat = new TextFormat();
      myFormat.color = 0x000000;
      myFormat.url = "www.yahoo.com";
      myFormat.font = "Arial";
      myFormat.bold = "true";
      eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").setTextFormat(myFormat);
}


this.menuName0.onRollover = function() {
      rollOverformat = new TextFormat();
      rollOverformat.color = 0xFFCE6C;
      this.recentBroadcast0_txt.setTextFormat(rollOverformat);
};

Hi, I've changed your code slightly, as you are using i to create the text field name, as they are unique within a numbered movieclip this is unnecessary.  I added the rollOut too!

for (i=0; i<3; i++) {
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("menuName"+i, 600+i);
      _root["menuName"+i].createTextField("recentBroadcast_txt", 501+i, 435, 45+(i*17), 140, 20);
      _root["menuName"+i].recentBroadcast_txt.html = true;
      _root["menuName"+i].recentBroadcast_txt.htmlText = "hello world";
      myFormat = new TextFormat();
      myFormat.color = 0x000000;
      myFormat.url = "www.yahoo.com";
      myFormat.font = "Arial";
      myFormat.bold = "true";
      _root["menuName"+i].recentBroadcast_txt.setTextFormat(myFormat);
      _root["menuName"+i].onRollOver = function() {
            rollOverformat = new TextFormat();
            rollOverformat.color = 0xFFCE6C;
            this.recentBroadcast_txt.setTextFormat(rollOverformat);
      };
      _root["menuName"+i].onRollOut = function() {
            rollOverformat = new TextFormat();
            rollOverformat.color = 0x000000;
            this.recentBroadcast_txt.setTextFormat(rollOverformat);
      };
}

By the way, there isn't any particular reason that I took out the eval's other than I find it easier to read
