okay, i've boken this down to the simplest form i can. if i
have a text field setup as a movie clip, and to that movie clip i
attach a event (like rollOver trace hi)...
If the text field is set to static, it only runs the rollOver
event if my cursor actually hits part of the letter form
If the text field is dynamic it uses the entire bounding box
for the movieclip as the hit area.
I need a dynamic text field that behaves like the static one,
as i'm generating text based labels in actionscript, but i want
them all to overlap and use the letter form for hit areas..
At first I thought the difference was just the border, but I
played around with the problem and it looks like the simple answer
is no. Evidently, the only types of text field you can create on
the fly are input and dynamic.
