Canvas components are HTML entities, not CreateJS stage objects. You address them with document.getElementById("instance name").
ah that works. Thanks ClayUUID!
The text in my text input is tiny, though. How do I control its size, font, etc? didn't see it in properties.
It's an HTML element. You style it via CSS like any other element--
var bob = document.getElementById("bobBox");
bob.style.color = "red";
bob.style.fontFamily = "courier";
bob.style.fontSize = "24px";
That makes sense. Thanks again.
