Problem showing a variable in text box

Posted 27 June 2013 - 05:19 PM

I'm new with flash, and want to make a simple text based game. I created a input text box for the player choose the name of the character and store it in a variable called "nametxt", in the next page I created a dinamyc text box with the instance name "text001" and want it to show a text with the name stored in the variable, something like this "So, your name is (name), right?". I used this code:

text001.text= " So, your name is " + String(nametxt) + ", right?"


And, when I test it, the text appears like this: So, your name is <TEXTFORMAT LEADING="2"><PALIGN="CENTER"><FONT FACE="Traditional Arabic" SIZE="20" COLOR="#000000" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">(name)</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>, right?

What's the problem? Thanks in advance.

How did you get the text out of the TextBox on the first 'page'? Cause it appears you're pulling out the format information with it. Are you by chance getting the 'htmlText' property or something?

Or is 'nametxt' a reference to the TextField itself on the first 'page'. In which case converting it to a string with 'String(nametxt)' does its own logic. That all depends on the type that is 'nametxt'. What you should be doing it storing the string text, not the entire TextField.
