this is my question:

I have a MC called image_dropzone, with a image container and caption text that duplicate it self for slideshow. so when next image is loaded it will be placed on duplicated MC and current image will fade out next image fade in. this works without captions. I need captions to be faded too, so I put captions inside MC and create a mc for image a text for caption, so this is code below loads Images only. I have something wrong loading text.

My idea is to  Load all the images and captions from the XML data

for(var i=1; i<=numImages; i++){
      _root.image_dropzone.duplicateMovieClip("image_dropzone" + i, i);
      _root["image_dropzone" + i].container.loadMovie(_root.image_folder + xmlData.slideshow[1].images[i-1].image[0].file.value);
      
_root["image_dropzone" + i].tb_caption.text.LoadVars(xmlData.slideshow[1].images[i-1].image[1].caption.value);

}


Make it simple: How to load XML text in tb_caption.

If you place text inside your MC and try to load it with value from external source , I would recommend to use "createTextField" function.

There are lots problem to manipulate/animated text if its you already put your textfields in MC.
and don't forget to embed the text in your flash project.
