I've got a small problem if someone is able to solve it.
In Adobe Animate, HTML5 canvas I would like to hide my text input box which is in your component menu.
To be more precise, I can hide it and make it reappear, but I cannot get the text input values out of it again, says the value is null. It works fine if I dont hide it with .visible.
I have also tried putting the text input box into a symbol, I can also hide it and make it reappear, but I still cannot get the values out of it. Although in the second case I am not sure if i referenced it correctly:
The general gist is, I would like to hide the textbox until I call it and then get values out of it, I've tried doing it a poor mans way of putting a white coloured box infront of the inputtextbox, but the textbox is still visible, sending it back and front doesnt seem to do anything.
