I have this actionscript code:

main_txtbox.html=true;      

test="MyVars"

if (test == "MyVars" ) {
myData = new LoadVars();
myData.onLoad = function() {

//request variables from vars.txt
main_txtbox.htmlText = this.test + "_Text";

};
myData.load("vars.txt");
}


======================
in my vars.txt i have:

MyVars_Text= <b>blah</b> blah blah blah blah




Why isnt it working? why isnt it loading the text from vars.txt into the flash textbox?

But if i change this:

//request variables from vars.txt
main_txtbox.htmlText = this.test + "_Text";

to this:

//request variables from vars.txt
main_txtbox.htmlText = this.MyVars_Text;

it works!!!!????

hi there, try this:

main_txtbox.html=true;    
test="MyVars"
if (test == "MyVars" )
{
    myData = new LoadVars();
    myData.onLoad = function()
    {
       place = "this."+test+"_Text"
       main_txtbox.htmlText = eval(place)
    }
    myData.load("vars.txt");
}

Pay attention to Case Sensitive in Flash (It can drives you crazy lol)
