Hello guy, yes it is a bit of problem that padding is not supported. The idea of having multiple text fields and to set their _x and _y position once they've been populated and formatted is not a bad idea but it sounds to me like that can become very tedious if you plan to have a lot of contents. Although if you stick to the idea you can wrap them all in a movie clip and add that movie clip in a textArea instance and it will be scrollable. The following link could help http://blog.inventis.be/embedding-images-and-movie-clips-in-flash-text-fields/1 person found this helpful
Thank you for the tip! But i don't see how to attach my ConteneurText_mc to a TextArea... The link you mentionned deals with external data.
In my piece of code (below), the MovieClip ConteneurText_mc appears outside the TextArea.
Hello guy you need to have and HTML text field and use the IMG and SRC tag to attach a movie clip from the library see below :
textField_txt.htmlText = "<p>Here's a movie clip symbol:<img src='symbol_ID'>";
Have a look there for molre info: http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/mx2004/main_7_2/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm ?context=Flash_MX_2004&file=00001046.html
Thank you Calwen. There is something, however i'm wondering: does Flash set for long document? Some people are advocating the use of Flash as a good alternative to HTML (see, for example, "Flash Applications Design Solutions" (Cheung and Bryant), but in fact, is it?
PS: Cheung and Bryant don't say it is THE solution however. Just food thoughts here.
Guy, I am working on a daily basis with Flash in the e-learning industry and my personal website is all about Flash but when I need information and purely information I want to get it quick and to be able to navigate my way to it quickly without having to wait for loading or look for the hidden button flying around the screen and here, to my opinion HTML reigns supreme. Most search engines are now going for the lightweight nearly empty web page with a text field and a search button, (Google was the first to get that). Point A is the user, Point B is the information he is looking for, it's best to have a straight line going from point A to point B without all those intermediate points that slow the essential goal which again is finding the information quickly.1 person found this helpful
