    myFormat.font = myFont.fontName;

    //myFormat.align = TextFormatAlign.CENTER;

    //creating text filed
    theTextField= new TextField();
    //theTextField.text= "";
    theTextField.defaultTextFormat = myFormat;
    theTextField.type = TextFieldType.INPUT;
    theTextField.border = true;
    theTextField.width = 270;
    theTextField.height = 80;
    theTextField.x = 620;
    theTextField.y = 310;
    theTextField.multiline = true;
    //theTextField.wordWrap = true;
    theTextField.background = true;


    addChild(theTextField);
    theTextField.addEventListener(TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT , inputEventCapture);


    public function createOutputBox(str:String):void {

    var myFont = new cfont();
    var myFormat2:TextFormat = new TextFormat();

    Did you declare what theTextField is?
    PHP Code:
    var theTextField:TextField = new TextField (); 
    If you want every keystroke to be captured by the TextField you can do
    PHP Code:
    stage.addEventListener (KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWNonStageKeyDown);
    function 
    onStageKeyDown (e:KeyboardEvent) {
        
    stage.focus theTextField;

    Every button you press on your keyboard will be captured by the TextField regardless of what you click on the stage because the focus will be on the TextField every time you press a key.

    Move your addEventListener prior to the addChild command.
    Some people are like Slinkies, not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
