Step 2: Making the text boxes
On the first frame create a text. Go to Text Tool (T) and create a text box. I used the font style called 'Romantic'. You don't need to write anything, but you must specify the font style because it will be the font that the you will see when you type in your username and password. My text box is '241 width' and '34 height'. Put the text up in the right corner of the movie.
Since the user has to type his username in the box we need to make that possible. Go to WindowProperties. Select the text box and change the property from 'Static Text' to 'Input Text'. If you want the box to have a border press the button called 'Show Border Aroud Text'.
Click on the 'Character...' button and select 'All Characters'. Type 20 where it says 'Maximum Characters'.
Now you can type in the box up to 20 characters, not more.
Now that you've created a text box select it and go to EditCopy (Ctrl + C) than EditPaste in Place (Ctrl + Shift + V).
One click on the text box you just copied and by holding down the 'Shift' key move with the arrow keys the text box down so it won't overlap the other one.
Now we need to attribute variables to the text boxes.
Select the first box.
