simple texbox question?!

simple texbox question?!

(OP)
hi.. i've been creating graphics with dynamic text in them, by using a static text field containing {textVar}.
But now i need to convert the text to lowercase, so instead of this i've tried adding this actionscript:

textVar="{textVar}".toLowerCase();

This didn't work.. so i tried creating a dynamic text box called "txt" and doing this:

_root.txt="{textVar}".toLowerCase();

This didn't work either.. The thing is when i hit Ctrl+Enter to get the preview it displays it properly, but when i generate a GIF it comes out blank..

Anyone?!
Thanks
