Dynamic Text - Need Help
on Jan 2, 2006 at 2:34:11 am

Happy New Year Everyone-

I'm working on a Flash 8 project ( that incorporates video and text. The text fields (only two in this test version) coincide with what will be a video (only audio right now) using cue points. My issue is, I was considering using dynamic text fields to lower the overall file size and make editing easier, but I can't seem to get it to work.

This is the code that I am using on the Master timeline:

var myLV:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

myLV.onLoad = function(success) {
if (success) {
_level15.loadedInfo.htmlText =;
} else {
_level15.loadedInfo.text = "There has been an error loading the requested information. Please contact the Webmaster and report your error.";

And this is the code that I am using to load the text (for the intro):


The main movie is created using a Timeline, and the video/text movie is created using Screens (Screen seemed like the better option for this portion).

My questions are:

1. Is this possible (and worth my while)? The "script" that I need to transcribe is roughly 20 pages.
2. Where do I place the code to activate myLV? I would need to be able to use myLV for multiple screens within each movie to concide with the cue points.

If this isn't clear, I'm happy to send my source files. Thanks.
