Thread: control mc with loaded variables?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Thumbs down


    I have a site where i have 18 mc, which build the background of a text field
    in one area of the site you can define the bgcolor of the mc with buttons. Theses simply say:
    on (release) {
    bg1 = "1";
    tellTarget ("_root.bg1") {
    2nd button says:

    on (release) {
    bg1 = "5";
    tellTarget ("_root.bg1") {

  2. #2
    the bg1 variable is saved into a txt file, called horaires.txt
    _root.bg1 is the mc with 8 frames and every second frame the color changes.
    in another part i want to load the txt and i want the mcs to go to their frame, which was saved earlier

    frame action:
    loadVariablesNum("horaire.txt", 0);

    tellTarget ("_root.bg1") {



  3. #3
    when i debug the movie the bg1 variables shows the correct framenumber but the bg1 mc does not do anything

    by the way i use gotoAndPlay which Expression

    well your post is a bit hard to understand, but
    you can create text field with "textField" name and than
    loadVariables ("myText.txt", "textField");
    use that variable to control MC like value from text Field you have.
