    Text fields not displaying

    Hi guys,

    Got a quirky little bug on some text fields - input and dynamic - to display cumulative frequencies in a user built graph. You can input text into the input boxes.. you just can't see it onscreen.

    I have dynamic text boxes that mimic the input text boxes which work fine so I know the text is going in to them (also a print function for the graph which prints out all the inputted text, and text generated for some dynamic text boxes which also have this same bug.

    Working in MX but need to output to Flash 5. Any takers :P

    Cheers,
    iPuppy

    And while I hate to ask this, because I'm sure that you've checked (well, not SURE...everyone makes mistakes), as well as having the font embedded, are you sure that it's a color you can see? Do you have white text on a white background? If you turn on the "frame" option on your textBox properties, it puts a white background on it as well (if your bG is originally black, or something). It's a little thing, but it can drive you nuts if you're not paying attention.
