Hello Experts,

I’m looking to create a marquee similar to the old html version in Flash MX .
Essentially, I’d like the text to scroll onto the stage for from right to left, pause, then exit the stage.  I’d like the text to act as a link if a url was specified.  Ultimately the text and link would be dynamic.

Here’s what I have so far:
/* Text Box and Copy */
_root.createTextField("marqueeText_txt" , 1,24,4,712,15);
marqueeText_txt.text = "Here’s my sample text!";
marqueeText_txt.border = false;
marqueeText_txt.wordWrap = false;
marqueeFormat_fmt = new TextFormat();
marqueeFormat_fmt.font = "Arial";
marqueeFormat_fmt.bold = true;
marqueeFormat_fmt.size = 12;
marqueeFormat_fmt.color = 666699;
marqueeFormat_fmt.bullet = true;
marqueeFormat_fmt.url = "http://www.myurl.com";

First, I need to know how to get the marqueeText to animated in the method mentioned above.  Next I need to know how to make it clickable and dynamic.

I’ve tried to find solutions in EE and Google, but most tutorial links have expired.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Ramy,

That wouldn't be a flash 8 fla file, would it?  

Unfortunatley I have mx 04 and can't open it.  Could you please save in mx 04 and resend?

Thanks.
