Hi everybody

I would like to know if it's possible to dynamically change the text in a canvas in javascript. I need to create a multilanguage animation with a language switcher.

I know how to to this with static code and i18next but I cant find how to do it with canvas.

 

Thanks

use a dynamic textfield

assign it an instance name (eg, tf)

 

if you're coding on the timeline that contains tf, use:

 

this.tf.text = "english";

 

to assign text.

Thanks @kglad

I use a dynamic textfield with an instance name. Can you explain me what do you mean by "coding on the timeline" ? Coding in the js file generate by animate ? I'm pretty new with animate, a whole world to discover !

you can add your own code to do things like assign text to textfield.  if the textfield were in a movieclip (eg, with instance name mc on the main timeline), you would use:

 

this.tf.text = "eng";  // on mc's timeline

 

and

 

this.mc.tf.text = "eng"; // on the main timeline
