    resolved [RESOLVED] [CS4] Help making AS2 code working on all Flash versions

    Hello

    I did this AS2 code in Flash CS4 and have a little trouble with it.

    Code:
    if (as2_mc.text != "Using Actionscript 2") {
    	_root.createEmptyMovieClip("dynamic_mc",1);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.beginFill(0x000000);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.moveTo(0,0);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.lineTo(Stage.width,0);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.lineTo(Stage.width,Stage.height);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.lineTo(0,Stage.height);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.lineTo(0,0);
    	_root.dynamic_mc.endFill();
    	_root.dynamic_mc._x = 0;
    	_root.dynamic_mc._y = 0;
    	_root.createTextField("dynamic_txt",2,0,0,150,1);
    	_root.dynamic_txt.text = "Not using Actionscript 2";
    	var textstyle:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
    	textstyle.color = 0xffffff;
    	textstyle.size = 16;
    	textstyle.font = "Arial";
    	textstyle.align = "center";
    	_root.dynamic_txt.setTextFormat(textstyle);
    	_root.dynamic_txt.autoSize = true;
    	_root.dynamic_txt.multiline = true;
    	_root.dynamic_txt.wordWrap = true;
    	_root.dynamic_txt._x = (Stage.width-_root.dynamic_txt._width)/2;
    	_root.dynamic_txt._y = (Stage.height-_root.dynamic_txt._height)/2;
    }
    It works like I want it to in Flash 7 and looks like this, but when I change the publish settings into Flash 8/9/10, the code looks like this.

    How do I make the code work on all AS2 Flash versions?

    Seems this issue is with you using multi line and centring your text.
    if you set to single line and left aligned it should work fine

    You're right, I changed it from multiline to single line and it worked.

    Is there a way to make it work using multiline though?

    PS - I noticed if I substituted != with == when publish in F10, the code works. Isn't this reversed?

    Ah, thanks for your help webdreamer! I set the text field to singleline. Then I added (as2_mc.wordWrap = true) on top so that the textfield fits into the box So now the code works on F7 thru F10 Thank you again!
