I'm not sure if i understand your problem.
You need html tags to manipulate text (underline/bold/italic). Embedding an image inside a dyn textbox needs Html, too.
Search for "TextFormat" in the Flash Manual and you'll find all the tags you may need.
Thanks for getting back to me. I'm aware of how to link HTML text to a textbox. However, I can't use a "tags-based" approach. I'm typing text directly into a Dynamic Text box I drew on-screen. I can Bold or Italic text, since the icons are shown in the Properties toolbar. However, Underline isn't there. So, when I have a link, for example, there's no way to underline the text (and not by using the </u> tags). Does this make sense?
No, there's no other flashinternal possibility. You must use the <u> tag.
But you could clone the fontface you use and add underscores to all glyphs.
Then you can change the underline stat by changing the fontface for the selection you want to underline.
I've done that before and it worked very well for me.
Thanks very much for the help. I actually thought about this idea soon after my last post.
What application did you use to quickly add an underline feature to any particular font?
Strange how Bold and Italic would be native formatting, but not underlining...
