    Prevent the textfield from resizing

    nmariano Level 1
      How can I prevent a textfield from resizing when I would resize it's container movieclip? Instead of the tf scaling with the mc I want it to just stay the same.

      Help anyone?

          The whole point of nesting objects (like textfields inside MovieClips) is to group them together so you can act on them as a group. There is probably a better way to accomplish what you want. If you describe it in more detail, folks here would be able to help more easily.

            Thank you for replying to my question and after a couple of hours I was able to figure it out.

            windowmc.bgmc
            windowmc.textfield

            Im creating a pop up window with a text field in it and then I attached a handle mc on the lower right corner of the window movieclip as a resize handle. So whenever I would stretch my window movieclip it wont affect the textfield. I resolved it by resizing the bgmc inside the windowmc instead of just the windowmc(which will affect the textfield).

            Thanks.
