    A simple button problem that I can't figure out

    When I press on a button a want to have text load in the scene through a movie clip.

    I can't seem to get it to work. I have attached the button if someone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    It's deprecated... (Even for a French-Canadian!) And can still be used, although it is!

    Dot syntax as components, is not allways the only and magical solution to everything!

    Disregarding your comment, soon the whole AS1 will be depreciated and replaced by AS2.

    It will still be deprecated and not depreciated... And a tellTarget action used in a movie today, will not mysteriously stop working in the future, although it might not be available in AS2!
    I'll disregard your comment!

    Anyways, my point is I'd accept a suggestion to use dot syntax, but will condemn any strict do's or don't's...

    I am German. English is still a foreign language for me but I do my Best. I am deprecating your comments. Spelled correctly?

    I think you could use the term depreciated.

    Deprecate means "to express disapproval of" while depreciate means "to lower in estimated value".

    So you should deprecate the use of the tellTarget command because it will depreciate in future versions.

    One last question

    Thanks for all your help. This worked great. The last question I have is once I click on another button the message should go away correct? Or do I need to code something else to make sure the text disappears.

    Once again. thanks for all your help.

    You have to code. Put a framename in the movieclip with the textfield in frame 1 something like stop. Then make a button like the other one and enter the same code as for your previous button except goToAndPlay ("stop");

    Hi John,
    I appreciate (apprecate) your comment
