    Hi yall,

    I read a complete tutorial on vfx about loading an external textfile in a textfield. Now, I have been trying and trying [by renaming textfield etc] to have multiple textfields which load different ex. textfiles .... but never succeeded. Is there something I don't know ? [ like that it is not possible ]

    See ya,

    Hi, you dont need a textfile for each variable in your movie. Use one text file to hold everything. ex. NAME=stuff&EMAIL=stuff. so your text fieldS variables will be NAME and EMAIL. Be careful how you tell Flash to look for the txt file. LoadVariables ("stuff.txt,0) will look in the same directory where the movie is.
    Hope it helps
