Disable Text Highlighting

Jul 5, 2013 11:06 AM

Hello. I have some Classic Text as Input Text and I want to make it so that the text is not able to be highlighted in the flash movie.

As you can see that text is highlightable, and I'm wondering how to disable that.

    Select the text object on the stage. Go to the Properties window for that text object. at the bottom of the Character section in the Properties window there are three buttons. The one on the left toggles the Selectable property.

    If you do have some actionscript set for this textField then you probably have an instance name for that textField. You can add instanceName.selectable = false to that actionscript about that textField. Just use the actual instance name.
