    Buttons and dynamic text

    Ok, another newbee chimes in.

    Is there a way to use dynamic text on a button? I have tried and it makes the area covered by the text un-clickable.

    The reason I want do do this is to pass in the buttion labels and values as a delimited list, parse it in flash, and add display the buttons. There may be an easier way and any help would be appriciated.

    You can choose if the textfield should be selectable or not in the Property Panel. That should fix it.

    I usually use movieclips that act like buttons as then you also have control over the rollOut animation ( which buttons can not have ). You can also have the "buttons" stay in a state when clicked .

    hummmm

    I was so quick to try your solution that I didn't read the rest of your message. I think I want to try your method. I may have more questions.

    Thanks again
