Default [AS3] Image to represent dynamic text

As the title says, just wondering how you would change a dynamic text to display an image changing..

e.g the speed of a car to an rev counter...

thanks in advance for any help, did a some searches on google, and couldnt find any good tutorials

As far I'm aware of, there aren't any "One Size Fits All" -method (without a LOT of coding) so could you please elaborate your goals a bit more?

the "image changing" would be in response to a numeric value.
text is a String value; it's meaningless in terms of it's value relative another String.

What you need to do is convert the String to a Number.
ActionScript Code:
var myText:String = "10"; var myTextField:TextField = new TextField(); myTextField.text = myText; addChild(myTextField); box.width = Number(myTextField.text);
