Hey, just to help anyone who needs it. I know what it was like when i was making my app and found something hard and found no help anyware. So here is a quick, basic tutorial to load a text file into a text box for all the people starting with jiggy. First make a variable that is a textbox. Code: var atextbox = new UITextView( [ 20 , 100 , 320 , 250 ] ); This makes a text box and assigns it to the word atextbox. From now on, if you want to use a this textbox you just have to use the word atextbox. Next you want to make load your data. Code: var daata = new Data(); This means that the variable called daata will make new data. Now we want to make it so that this data is the content of the text file. Code: //load the data, from the file, in your app location. in folder text and file name of textfile.txt daata.loadFromFile(Bundle.pathForResource("/Text/textfile.txt")); //move from the currentView, to the text box mainView.transitionFrom( 1, currentView , atextbox ); //the text in the text box is equal to the variable called daata, as a string. atextbox.text = daata.asString(); //This makes the data uneditable, to change this make it true (See below) atextbox.editable = false; //Add the textbox into the current view atextbox.addSubview(); } So there you go. If you need the text file to be editable, then use this code instead. make a variable called keyboard Code: var keyboard = new UIKeyboard(); Code: daata.loadFromFile(Bundle.pathForResource("/Text/textfile.txt")); mainView.transitionFrom( 1, currentView , atextbox ); atextbox.text = daata.asString(); atextbox.editable = true; atextbox.addSubview(); keyboard.preferredKeyboardType = 0; keyboard.setDefaultReturnKeyType( 0 ); keyboard.showPreferredLayout(); keyboard.activate(); window.addSubview( keyboard ); This brings up a text box with your text file contence in it, plus it allows it to be edited using the keyboard. Hope this helped anyone who needed help. Next tutorial: Saving your edited text files.
