I am trying to get a dynamic text box in a movie clip to have its value updated. I have been unable to get it to display anything including any default text entered.
After much consternaton I went to the first frame of the root timeline and placed another dynamic text box on the stage called theText.
The default text does not initially display bit will display after clicking in the box a couple times.
This is the error:
1119: Access of possibly undefined property theText through a reference with static type flash.display:DisplayObject.
This is the line referred to:
root.theText.text = "?????";
this.theText.text = "?????"; yields the same error.
As does theText.text = "anything";
Anysuggestions are appreciated.
