Default having problems with loadVariables

Here is the code i have:


_root.photoNumber = Number(photonumber);
_root.plantName = String(plantname);
trace (photoNumber)

stop ();
in the plantData.txt file i have the following:

When i run it, it traces photoNumber as 0 no matter what i have for the number. Any ideas what i am doing wrong here?

try it this way
ActionScript Code:
myVars = new LoadVars (); myVars.onLoad = function (success) {     if (success)     {     trace(this.photonumber);     trace(this.plantname);     photo_mc.loadMovie("photo"+this.photonumber+".jpg");    } } myVars.load("plantData.txt");
I think the problem you may be having is that the code is executing before the text file is loaded.

Thanks, that was it, there wasnt enough time for it to load. I loaded the variables in frame 1 and ran the code in frame 3 and it solved it. Thanks a bunch.
