    Hmm...

    Hmm... let me try...

    Code:
    On (Release)
    LoadVariablesNum("external.txt" , dynamic_text_var_name)
    Just give your Dynamic Text box a Variable Name. And that should do it

    i tried that

    yeah, thats what i thought at first, but when i do that, it opens a new explorer window with the file in it... for example i want to load text.txt, and the contents is "checking to see if it works" instead of putting it into the text box (main_text) it just opens a new window of text.txt

    Hmm.

    Have you tried putting the Button in a MC.
    Also, make sure you have it as _self... not _blank

    ok...

    i have a button and a multiline dynamic text box with html and wordwrap named atlantis, and in the button i have this

    on(release){
    loadVariablesNum ("test.txt", atlantis);
    }

    the test.txt is in the same folder as the project file, and it will load it into a new window.... thanks a lot for the help, there arent too many people who will actually help people step by step

    Okay...

    This is what I did...
    Made a Button.
    Put it on the Main Movie.
    The scripting i added to the button is:
    Code:
    on (release) {
        loadVariables ("textfile.txt", output);
    }
    Then I made a dynamic text box with a variable name of "output"

    Then... I made my external file named textfile.txt with the following writtin in it:
    Code:
    output="qui4HFIUHF4H8IUQA8UHFAQIU4F5IUN4FNIU;FA54NIU;5IUN54"
    Then Poof. Thats All there is. Just make sure the SWF and the TEXT file are in the same directory.

    I dont Know !!!

    I am not really sure. From my understanding, having HTML checked means that you can have HTML in there. I think you just use it the same way. If not, I dont know.
