Hi,

We are trying to control Flash stage background colour using External Text File.  Click on botton (see below code) the background colour changes, but we want it to load the colour from the text without clicking any botton.  But it wont work if it's changed from onRelease to onLoad.

url = new LoadVars();
url.load("myPhoto.txt");
url.onLoad = function() {
_root.clipname.loadMovie(url.location);

function nuColor(col) {
meColor=new Color(bground);
meColor.setRGB(col);
}

_root.bt1.onRelease=function(){
    nuColor(url.color1);
}
_root.bt2.onRelease=function(){
    nuColor(url.color2);
}
_root.bt3.onRelease=function(){
    nuColor(url.color3);
}

}

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response, we've just tried it and it hasn't worked.  As below:

url = new LoadVars();
url.load("colors.txt");
url.onLoad = function() {
_root.clipname.loadMovie(url.location);

function nuColor(col) {
meColor=new Color(bground);
meColor.setRGB(col);
}

this.onLoad=function(){
    nuColor(url.color1);
}

}

Help :)

How about this???

url = new LoadVars();
url.load("colors.txt");
url.onLoad = function()
{
      _root.clipname.loadMovie(url.location);
      nuColor(url.color1);
}

function nuColor(col)
{
      meColor=new Color(bground);
      meColor.setRGB(col);
