1st off, I'm using Flash MX 2004.

I want to be able to associate a text box to a button. I know how to create a text box and I know how to create a button and give it the actions that it needs to have to get the job done but I don't know how to associate the two. The text box needs to set a value for a variable that will be scripted to the button.

Thanks in advance.

Set the text box's variable to whatever you want it to be. Then use the button to detect that variable. It's really simple.
Code: [ Select ]
on (release) {
  1. on (release) {
  2.   trace(_root.variableName);
  3. }

In this example, it will send your variable to the output window. (In Flash MX. Should work for 2004)
