I am developing a Flash designer interface - I need an actionScript expert to work with on bits and peices so here's the first item I am slightly struggling with. You can see how far I've got from the link here:

You will see that text objects can be created within the designer, and moved around with the select tool - that part works fine. What I require is for text when selected with the text tool [it turns blue] becomes an editable text field that you can type into.
Currently as the movieClip the text sits in has a few functions attached to allow dragging/selection etc. I think that the fact it has actions stops text from being editable.
Please have a look - there is a small budget for this first bit but I have huge amounts to do on this project such as XML storage to MySQL, Rendering the flash file as hi-res & lo-res JPGs, import of background library as templates, Paypal Checkout and so on so if you are able to complete this first piece I will work with you exclusivley on completing the project.
As it is Flash based, I suggest that you download the files and complte the task. If you then provide me with a link to the working SWF file I will then pay immediately and you can then send me the full flash file.
The Flash file itself is fairly straightforward:
- Actionscript detects the active area [the card] so see if text can be created.
-On clicking it checks whether yuo are clicking on an activeItem or the card canvas, depending on this it either creates an new MC and embeds a textField in it or sets existing text t be editted [it goes blue].
If you can do it by all means email me, complete the work and send a link - I will pay $35 immediately to anyone who completes this but you may want to email to check no-one else has already completed.
Hope that all seems fair - any questions please ask!
