How would something like this be done? Ideally I'd like to have a dynamic text box that loads text links from a text file or xml, and the links interact with the movie by sending the text box away and loading another movie in its place. I haven't found anything on how to do this, and my project has come to a screeching halt because of this text link thing.

I did find some scrolling techniques for scrolling a movie clip inside of a scroll pane, but I can't create a new movie clip tall enough to accomodate the huge amount of links I'm going to have. Plus, in my opinion, thats just not good form for something that should have some dynamic update ability.

Any ideas?

Rather a dynamic .html enabled textfield, using an "a href" in combination with a call to some asfunctions (defined on the first frame of your movie...), which would in turn direct the playhead to some frame, load some external movie or in fact, do whatever else...
