    Load a Vairable from a text flile?

    OK i have 6 frames and i am pulling in a vairable on each frame is there a way of doing something like below:

    fish = "line 1 of text file vair.txt"
    fish = "line 2 of text file vair.txt"
    fish = "line 3 of text file vair.txt"

    and so on and the text file would be like below


    hope this makes sence

    Cheers Slaup

    yes..(and no).. it wont be exactly like that..but you will get the same result.

    what you will need to use is a varObject (same as loadVariables)..but gives you more control (there is a link in my foeter that explains how to use the loadVar Object..called varObject)

    basically you have create a new loadvars object..(give it a name) we'll call it myVars

    this name: "myVars" refers to the WHOLE text file and everything in it.

    so you textFile could be like this:


    when you load this up using the loadVar object...all those variables are associated with the myVars object (textFile).

    so on each frame..you can call a different variable

    frame 1 code:
    textField.text = myVars.var1;

    frame2 code:
    textField.text = myVars.var2;

    frame3 code:
    textField.text = myVars.var3;


    using a varObject is easy..if you have any question..post.
