Reading text from file advice
i have a large number of strings (short descriptions of things) that i need to access by a string id and use (one at a time) as the text in a TextArea.
i am new to flex and actionscript so the only thing i could think of was creating an associative array of strings and doing something like:
textArea.text = assocArray["stringID"]
it seems like this is a bad idea creating a huge array (there will be hundreds of strings) when the user may only read a few.
how can i store these in another file (text, xml, i don't care) and then access them using a string id?
is this possible? any help would be appreciated
