Chapter 12. Working with Text and Strings

Chapter 12. Working with Text and Strings

Many of the applications, presentations, and graphics that you create with Macromedia Flash Professional 8 or Macromedia Flash Basic 8 include some kind of text. You can use many different kinds of text. You might use static text in your layouts, but dynamic text for longer passages of text. Or you might use input text to capture user input, and text in an image for your background design. You can create text fields with the Flash authoring tool, or use ActionScript.

One way to display text is to use code to manipulate how strings appear before they are loaded and displayed on the Stage at runtime. You can work with strings in an application in several ways, such as sending them to a server and retrieving a response, parsing strings in an array, or validating strings that the user types into a text field.
