Summary

You can place text in Flash movies with ActionScript by using dynamic text fields. Each field is linked to an ActionScript variable. New text in a text field takes on the font, size, and style of the text field. However, you can customize how text looks using simple HTML tags or a TextFormat object.

You can easily get text and other variable contents from external sources in two ways. The first method involves adding a variable declaration to the URL in the movie's HTML page. The second method uses an external text file.
