Default LoadVars [text loads but i can't show it]


I'm using the loadVars() method to load a textfile into my flash file. When I trace the message it all works perfect, but displaying the textfile contents into my dynamic textfile failes.

// start code
loadHandler = function(data){
trace("Loading failed");

myData = new loadVars();
myData.onLoad = loadHandler;
// end code

// my dynamic textfield variablename

// I think it has to do with the fact that i'm loading this file on the:
// _root.content.main level

Does anybody knows how to fix this??

don't give your textbox a variable name, give it an instance name (something different than your loadvars object name), like data_txt
then in your onLoad event put this line:
ActionScript Code:
loadHandler = function(data){ if(data){ trace(this.text); data_txt.text=this.text; } //.... the rest of your code

that should do it for you.
what the hell was i thinking?
