Part Three - Load the second textfile in the print movieclip

In the first frame of the main timeline another action is placed;

loadVariables("printText.txt", "printMc");

This wil force the second textfile in the movieclip (printMc) and divide the text over three frames.

Part Four - Yai, the print button!

I made a simple button which will trigger the print action. Put the button on the stage and place this action on the button;

on (release) {
printNum(_root.printMc, "bmax");

this action will print all (three) frames from the movieclip with the Instance Name printMc!

Publish your movie and click the print-button... Now switch on your printer and try this again ;-)
