    Read here for a solution for loading a .txt file into a dynamic textbox in an MC

    Movies section will not let me upload this as it is a version 8 file. It should work in version 6 and 7 though.

    If you cannot make sense of the file, please let me know. It is extremely simple though:

    -ActionScript on the MC must reference the .as file on the server
    -Textbox variable name, currently "yourTextbox", must appear in the .txt file and the .as file.
    -.swf, .txt and .as must be in the same folder on the server
    -.txt and .as files can be opened with notepad or any other txt file viewer/editor

    Enjoy!

    Just a note - Actionscript .as files are compiled into the SWF when it is created, and do not need to reside on the server at all...

    Thanks. I've always used this method and never given much thought to the server side files.

    Thanks. I've always used this method and never given much thought to the server side files. They were originally part of a dynamic scrollpane and I just adapted it to a simple text box.

    Sorry about the above! The message saved 3 times while I was typing it!? Not quite sure how that happened!
