Chapter 17. Working with Text > Dynamic and Input Text

Dynamic and Input Text

Static text does not allow for any user input. To change the text, changes must be made in the Flash source file (FLA). Input and dynamic text fields are populated at runtime. To do anything useful with them, you have to access or manipulate the text fields with ActionScript.

With input and dynamic text, you create placeholder text fields in the FLA to designate where text will be placed and how it will appear during playback. Input and dynamic text attributes, like static text attributes, are assigned in the Property inspector.
