we have a flex project with many html UITextFields. The issue
is getting the style correct. At preset, text fields are getting
their styles from class attributes. For example, if we have an
XMLList like this:
<p class='norm'> This is <a href='event:do
the text field is assigned a styleName of .norm from our
application css. I have tried to rather assign a styleSheet to the
UITextFields, but the only way i can get fonts to embed is if i use
the application's css which gets fonts from a swf:
So, while styleName embeded the fonts well, the problem is
getting things like the anchor to cooperate, and worse, lists
(<li> tags) At times, we have multiple paragraphs and/or
lists all in one html UITextField. We need to apply more than just
one styleName to the fields. However, as i said, if we try to
assign a styleSheet to the text field we get empty textFields. It
seems the only way to get any formatting is by using styleName.
I am aware we could litter our markup with <font
face='font1' color='#ffffbb'> but that seems a bit of a hack.
Can someone give some direction of how to use css, styleNames, and
or both to a UITextField? Attached is my method for creating the
and yes, i have scoured forums and help files.
