The next script belongs behind the arrow button that goes on the side and lets you advance through the selections. Here's the script for that:

on (release) {
	for (a=c; a<b; a<count; a++) {
		this = "blah"+a;
		that = eval(this);
		text.newoutput = text.newoutput+newa+" - "+that+"\n\n";

This script basically does the same thing as the one before it with one major difference - it only advances through the choices already in the script, and doesn't re-fetch the next results. It just reads the variables already chached in the movie. This saves time in the long run and makes it easier on your internet connection.

The last piece of this puzzle is the actual file that you search. In this case, the file specified in the PHP script is stuff.txt You can change it to whatever you want, but be sure that it's divided up into lines (by newlines) or else you're going to get one really long rearch result. Most documents will have the newlines already there, you just have to copy it over. But on occasion, you'll need to go in and separate it out into lines.

Well, that's pretty much it! If you've gotten all of this stuff put together, then you shouldn't have any trouble gettting this working together and be happily searching text files in no time! Best of luck!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
