Hello all,

I have a swf with an external text file in which I have imported into director, but for some reason my text isn't showing up.

I then tried to just put the text into a static text box and still nothing...

Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks

Definitely should be dynamic. Mind posting the AS so we can take a look?

possible problems:
1. incorrect loading of swf
2. load of the swf in a movieclip which is covered by another movie
3. load of the swf in a movieclip which then is overwritten
4. load of the swf in a movieclip which is only in a few frames, and the main timeline goes over it.
5. wrong AS syntax
should i continue? :P

AH my bad, I was exporting as flash 8, but my version of director is mx, once I published the swf as flash 7 it worked!

Do you mind if i ask?
How do you import the text? Trough php or directly?
I ask this because i have trouble with loading a text from an external .txt trough php.
