Hi, I'm trying to pass a sting variable (var teamName:String) to a dynamic text field nested inside a couple of layers of MCs. The path is correct because the text field is being changed by the variable, but the string itself is corrupted or something because the variable's contents seems to be being altered.
Trying to send the string "Mr Jones" results in the text field showing "M Joe". Trying to send the string "Executive" results in the text field displaying "Eee". As you can see, it is not even a simple truncation of the string (such as perhaps might have been the case if the text field were not big enough to hold the string); it is as if Flash is just choosing a few letters and ignoring the rest. Can anybody shed any light on this? I'm new to Actionscript and every (probably simple) stumbling block like this throws me completely out of the ring. Many thanks. -- Rick Lecoat _______________________________________________ Flashcoders@chattyfig.figleaf.com To change your subscription options or search the archive: http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/mailman/listinfo/flashcoders Brought to you by Fig Leaf Software Premier Authorized Adobe Consulting and Training http://www.figleaf.com http://training.figleaf.com
