    xml --> dynamic text box --> text box width

    Level 7
      I am wondering about the following. I would like to have a mask reveal
      over a dynamic text box, which gets fed by an xml document. I think the
      problem that I am looking at here is that, I have to get the width of
      the dynamic text box after the xml content was flowed into it. My
      question is if the dynamic text box will have a width, dependent on the
      content, not on how wide it is set on the stage? In oder for my reveals
      to look right, I have to get the width, which will vary based on what
      came from the xml file. Is this possible? I would like to avoid, having
      to get a word count for each line.

      Thanks for any help with this!
