Subject: FLASH: Reading In External Text / Eval Problem
From: David Doggett
Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2000 15:25:27 GMT


What I am doing is incrementing the value of a variable "num" and trying to
read in the correct variable info from an external text file like this:

This is what the text file would look like:

&variable1=value 1&variable2=value&variable3=value&

This is my code that I am having problems with:

num = num + 1 (lets say right now the value is 1)
Set Variable: "/:variable" = Eval("variable"&num)

I expected this to update a text area named "variable" on the main timeline
but as it sits the variable, "variable" is empty.

Any ideas?
