Here si my example:

var tf1:TextField = createNewTextField();
var tf2:TextField = createNewTextField();
tf1._x = 10;
tf2._x = tf1._x + tf1._width + 10;

function createNewTextField():TextField{
	var depth:Number = _root.getNextHighestDepth();
	var tf:TextField = _root.createTextField("textfield" + depth, depth, 0, 0, 200, 25);
	tf.border = true;
	tf.type = "input";
	tf.text = "1234567890";
	tf.onSetFocus = function() {
		this.text = "0987654321";
	};
	tf.onKillFocus = function() {
		this.text = "";
	};
	return tf;
}

I have two fields already.
_root.qk_name & _root.qk_phone

Same fla as the previous question.

How/Where should I implement the code above.

qk_name should be variable character.
qk_phone is displayed "Phone: ###-###-####", but a user should only be able to input numbers & dashes

can you upload your fla?

if you have created movieclip instance you should able to use my functions:

_root.qk_name.tf.onSetFocus = function() {
            this.text = "";
      };
_root.qk_name.onKillFocus = function() {
            this.text = "###-###-####";
      };

dgofman,

I was out of town for a while, never got online to ee.

What happened to the other question you worked with me on?
Did the mods get you the points after all ??
If not, let me know so I can email someone & try to get it fixed.

-steve

here's the download link to the fla file
files.me.com/swaskey/cjow20

EE won't let me attach it, keeps saying:
"The extension of one or more files in the archive is not in the list of allowed extensions: bin/SymDepend.cache" ... It's just a normal fla file, 880kb ..

Thanks.

Thanks Dgofman,
This is what I get when I export the swf, the onfocus clears the name perfectly, but the number field only permits numbers 1,8,5,9 (which I think it may have already done for some reason) and once I type in anything - the Phone field just goes right back to Phone: ###-###-####

What's causes that?

Because I am validation only number by your mask ###-###-####

111-222-3333
444-555-6666
ect.
If number is not matched I reset to old text.
Look on my login in the first frame
