WORDs have set text which will set the text. I don't see why that would stop working: is wordClicked the problem, rather than setText() - can you try calling setText() on w[0] through a button press several times to see if it fails?

Subject: [Xerte] Accessing breakApart() words


I use breakApart() to convert a text field into a series of movie clips.

    w = IdPrayer.breakApart(25, 5, true, false);

I am then able to access the text and the index of a word when it is clicked.

    Txt = IdPrayer.wordClicked.text;
    Index = IdPrayer.wordClicked.index;

I am able to replace the text


However, I am only able to set the text 1 time.  And although the word changes on the screen, IdPrayer.wordClicked.text has the original string in it when I click the modified word.  If I try to change the text a second time, nothing happens.

    IdPrayer.wordClicked.setText("Something else");

I'm guessing that setText() is not what I should be using here... but haven't found what I should be using.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Have a great evening,
