Dynamic Text

For text that you control—such as scores in an arcade game, the display of a calculator, or the percentage-of-download progress of your Flash movie—take advantage of Flash’s dynamic text option. Whereas input text fields accept information from the viewer, dynamic text fields output information to the viewer. As is the case with input text, the contents of the text field are assigned to its text property.

In the following task, you will create an input text field and a dynamic text field. When viewers enter the temperature, in Celsius, in the input text field, Flash will convert the value to Fahrenheit and display it in the dynamic text field.
