I am thing to create a text 'dashboard' in a flash movie for an
industrial interface. Nothing fancy, just a few lines of text.
I've not worked with flash/ming before, so I'm feeling my way through
I have this:
$f = new SWFFont("/lib/flashfonts/Techno.fdb");
$t = new SWFText();
$t->setColor(0xff, 0xff, 0xff);
$text = $m->add($t);
where $m is my movie instance.
Now what I want to do is to change the text every time I loop through
the generation. The main loop iterates every few seconds, so I need
something like this:
delete text in $t
add new text in $t
display updated $t
For the life of me I cannot figure out how to do that....
Even adding something like
results in a blank html document....
Could someone please shed some light on this? Or point me in the
direction of a text turorial for ming morons?
