It looks good, but this effect isn’t difficult to create. Let’s see how easy it is!

…and don’t forget to download the sample files here.

1. First, create a text field. I gave mine a variable name of "shuffle".

2. Convert the textfield to a movie clip, and name it "Random".

3. To convert to movie clip, select the textfield. Press f8, select radio movieclip, enter a name, and click Ok.

4. Right click the movie clip and access its actions. Insert this action:

onClipEvent (enterFrame)  
{
shuffle = random(9);
}

5. Create a duplicate of the movie clip.

That’s it! Run the movie!
