Passwords in Flash 5

Ok, so basically, you want to make a password for a website of another part of a flash movie. I will divide this tutorial into three parts, Part 1 is going to be the text fields. Part 2 will be the button. Part 3 will be the actionscript for the button.

Part One, TextFields.

Ok so part one, Open up flash, and make a new movie. The default size will be ok. Ok, This password movie will only take up one frame, on one layer, simple huh.
Ok, so make a normal 'Static' text box and write 'Password' in it. So it is easier to understand for the viewer. Then in the 'Text Options' box select the sub-tab 'Text Options' and then select the drop box and change it to 'Input Text'. Select the checkbox, 'Border BG' Then change the 'Max Chars.' to 10. Then select every type of 'Embed Font'. Next change the variable name to 'inputPass'.
"Of course excluding the 's. Also, Make sure it is JUST LIKE THAT. Because flash is CaSe SeNsItIvE. That means that, This is different than tHiS is different than thiS."

Next make a new text field, only this time change the dropbox to 'Dynamic TextField'. Now UNCHECK the box 'Selectable'. However, Check all the 'Embed Font' Boxes. And this time set the variable to 'display'. "Of course excluding the 's."

Now we are done with the text fields, now we can move onto the button stage.
