Text Options

With Flash, you are not limited to static text—text that displays in published movies exactly as it is entered in an FLA. Users can insert text into input fields or it can be added dynamically to a movie during runtime. So far, you have worked with static text, which is the default. Static text does not allow for any user input and, to update content, changes must be made in the FLA. Input and dynamic text fields are populated during runtime, and can be accessed and manipulated with ActionScript. When you’re utilizing input and dynamic text, you create placeholder text fields within an FLA to designate where text will be placed and how it will appear during playback of the movie. Input and dynamic text attributes, like static text attributes, are assigned within the Property Inspector.

Input Text

Input text enables users to insert text, as in a form, while a movie is playing. Input text fields are assigned variable names so that the information entered into them can be saved and accessed using ActionScript.
