    dynamic text flow into two text boxes

    i've found this code on the web that works well and need help migrating from as2 to as3?

    i just don't know what the equivalent codes are?

    PHP Code:
    var lorem_lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

    lorem_lv.onData = function(src:String) {
        if (
    src != undefined) {
            
    txtCol1.text src;
            if (
    txtCol1.maxscroll != 1) {
                
    txtCol2.text txtCol1.text;
                for (
    0txtCol1.bottomScrolli++) {
                    
    txtCol2.text += "\n";
                }
                
    txtCol2.scroll txtCol1.bottomScroll 1;
            }
        } else {
            
    txtCol1.text "Unable to load external file.";
        }
    };


    lorem_lv.load("http://websitetips.com/articles/copy/lorem/ipsum.txt");

    Actionscript Code:
    var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
    loader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
    loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, varsLoaded);

    function varsLoaded (event:Event):void {
    }

    loader.load(new URLRequest("http://websitetips.com/articles/copy/lorem/ipsum.txt"));
    This is the start of what you're looking at, question for you. Do you want it to wait until everything is loaded or to have it checking while it's loading. That's the difference between Complete and onData.

    seriously, most of what you are looking for is in the documentation for as3.

    is the issue how to load the information, or the textfield logic?

    I want to create a dynamic loading text into a two column text box.
    I've been investigating the CS5 TLF text boxes, but i'm not having any luck with a solution yet. (I'm an average as3 coder).

    you need to give more information ratboy...

    do you not understand how to load the text?
    are you forced with using TLF? (or can you use classic)
    can you not figure out how to overflow text into another textfield?
    which part of this do you not understand?

    Hi Baby Minion
    I do know how to load text.
    And I don't need to use TLF text box.
    I cant figure out how to overflow text into another textfield.

    did you look at what swak wrote?

    that is the basic code for loading a file, could you get that to work?
