View Full Version : Using code in textfile?

I was thinkin, is there a way to make flash use code that's stored in a text file?

I'm tryin to make a .swf that opens a text file from a website and creates everything that the code inside the text file sais. The form is blank, but using the code in the text file, it would make all the buttons and text where they should go.

actionscript must be compiled down. You can't make new code at run time.

Let me just add that you can modify existing properties and even call functions that has already been defined from a external data file. If that was unclear, sorry. But still, no new actionscript can be made at runtime.
