    mediaplayer text overlay

    Looking to find a way to make the text overlay in the mediaplayer be more transparent.

    Set an alpha value for the "m" movieclip in the "loadSelectedItem" function. Be aware this also sets the alpha value of the text object ("t") as it is a child of "m" unless you go the extra length to separate the two.

    Text OVERLAY FONT SIZE // mediaplayer with XML file

    RE: OVERLAY FONT SIZE // mediaplayer with XML file
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Is there a way to set a "larger font SIZE" (for persons with visual impairments),
    when using an external XML file to load images with a TEXT "OVERLAY" with mediaplayer.

    sample:
    ------------------------------
    <item label="menu">
    <still src="http://domain.org/img/img.png" tid="0x00000010" ttime="3" itime="15" scalemode="1" />
    <overlays transition="0" timeframe="0,3,11,14">
    <overlay x="270" y="50" width="210" height="70" text="size 1" link="1.php" />
    <overlay x="270" y="120" width="210" height="70" text="size 2" link="2.php" />
    <overlay x="270" y="200" width="210" height="20" text="size 3" link="3.php" />
    <overlay x="270" y="240" width="210" height="20" text="size 4" link="4.php" />
    </overlays>
    </item>

    mediaplayer1.textFormat = new TextFormat('_sans', 20);

    thank you kindly Bob... i am loading a second SWF file from a "main.swf"
    file think i have the "font" worked out in AS3 as follows...

    --------------------------------------------------------
    // koolmoves v 7.5.1 // as3 // sub swf 1
    var myFont:TextFormat=new TextFormat();myFont.size="24";
    myFont.font = "Verdana";myFont.align="center"

    var myTextSub:TextField = new TextField();
    myTextSub.width = 175;
    myTextSub.height = 30;
    myTextSub.border = true;
    addChild(myTextSub);

    myTextSub.x = 20;
    myTextSub.y = 20;
    myTextSub.text = myArray[1]; // not arriving...
    myTextSub.setTextFormat(myFont);

    stop();
    --------------------------------------------------------

    however.... the data from the "main" section "myArray[1]" does not arrive to the variable in the "sub" SWF file...

    here are the 2) FUN and SWF files....
