    dynamic text box

    Is there a way to load a text file into a dynamic text box without any html or any code? For example: a file named about.txt .. and the content: This is a a test.
    I just want the client to be able to open a text file and make updates as accordingly without knowing any html.

    To access local files, you need the load and save methods from the FileReference class.

    Yes. Thank you. This is almost what I'm looking for. I was hoping there was a way to do just that without using the variable inside the text file. Instead of : &lyrics=This is a test. ... Just: This is a test.

    If that's not possible then I will settle for this method.
