    Simple, simple... input field question

    OK, I have two input text fields, one is var x1 and another is var x2

    onRelease I`m trying to use this code
    score = Math.sqrt (x1+1) - Math.sqrt (x2)

    It`s not working, check out attached fla file

    Thanks folks

    instead of using var, give your textfields instance names x1 and x2... then use

    score = Math.sqrt(Number(x1.text)+1) - Math.sqrt(Number(x2.text));

    Note: anything retrieved from a textfield is considered to be a string..so before applying any mathematics to their contents, you need to convert their contents to a number, using the Number function...

    hope that helps
