TextField formatting?

Posted 31 October 2009 - 10:44 AM

i created a dynamic textfield and the text there appears tooo small to actually see it
var mytextbox:TextField = new TextField;
mytextbox.multiline = false;
mytextbox.type = TextFieldType.DYNAMIC;
mytextbox.text=mystring;
stage.addChild(mytextbox);


mystring contains the phrases that i want to display, it is loaded externally.
how to apply style to this textfield??like the options that can be chosen at the "properties", and am I be able to apply this style to other textfield that is created later?

You need to create a TextFormat object to store all the text settings. Have a read of this: TextFormat

Make sure that you apply the textformat to your textfield after you assign the text, otherwise it won't work. Also, if you're using a font that isn't available to every user like Arial, then make sure you embed your font or it will render strangely:
mytextbox.embedFonts = true;
