View Full Version : HELP!!!!!

This should be easy...

I have two dynamic text boxes on the main time line and a button. One text box we will call A and the other B. The main timeline has two frames, the first has the action script of:
B = 0
The second,
stop ();

I used B=0 to set box B to 0 before I hit the button.

The button on the main timeline puts in a random number into box A from 3-18.

What I would like is an actionscript that checks if box A has a number such as 16 to put a 1 into box B. For example, if A has 16, then B should have a 1. If A has 17, then B should have a 2. If A has 18, then B should have a 3.

Does anyone have a solution? I tried everything I can think of but Im not a programmer. Any help will be appreciated... also if you do have a solution can you post the action script so I can copy and paste?

first of all you have stop on the second frame so your movie will stop after frame two. ditch your second frame and write something like this:

b = 0;
_root.onEnterFrame = function(){
if(a.output == 16){
b.output = 1;

//where output is either the varible name inside the box movie clip or the output variable name on the text box

now instead of writing a bunch of if statements so that 16->1 17->2 just do it like

if(a.output > 15){
b.output = a.output - 15;

hopefully you get the jist.
