    Input text color difference & a button with text

    Hi all,

    In Flash MX 2004 Pro, I am trying to create a rectangular button that has the word "Enter" on it. For some reason, the text is gone and I don't know what happened to it. Can someone take a look and tell me what I'm doing wrong, please?

    Oh, also... There is an input text field I created, but it's white (and so is the rest of the movie). How can I change it so that the background of the entire scene is different from the input text field (so it is seen)? That's gotta be easy, but damned if I can get it...

    Thanks!

    Chris

    Ok, I figured out the text ON the button, and I seperated the input text field from the background. I can change the background without interfering with the input text box, BUT when I do change the background, it changes in all 3 scenes, and I only want the FIRST scene's background to be black (with the other 2 remaining white).

    Here's the latest file, forget the one above... Anyone?

    [edit] One other thing... After inputting the password, the user currently would have to actually mouse-click the "Enter" button. Hitting Enter on the keyboard doesn't work. How can I make it so that hitting the Enter key would work? That is NO big deal. If it's easy, cool. If not, no worries. [/edit]

    Ok,

    I've gotten most of this to work thanks to Google.

    One more thing. I wanted to add buttons to scenes 2 & 3 that would return to the logon screen. I did that ok. In Scene 3, however, I made a second button (the blue gradient one) that I would like to go to a certain URL when clicked.

    I have read a little bit about "getURL" actionscripting, but couldn't get it to work. Can anyone tell me the code to go to a URL when that button is clicked? Everything else works the way I want to!

    Attached is the most current file. Can ANYONE tell me this?!

    Thanks,

    Chris
