    Nirmalya Saha

      I have a textbox.

      private var myTextBox:Text = new Text();


      insert text from a array collection with a for loop


      for(var i:int=0;i<myArrCollection.length;i++){

           myTextBox.text = myArrCollection.getItemAt(i)["Name"].toString();

           myTextBox.width = 180;



      How i measure the textbox height for every loop.


      I tried with myTextBox.measuredHeight, myTextBox.textHeight, myTextBox.height. Everything returns 0. . please help
