I have 4 empty text fields whose text is set when questions
are generated from a database. The size of the text fields when
displayed on screen alter according to the amount of text they are
to contain. Is there any of specifying exactly what size you want
an empty text field cast member to be so that they all appear the
same size. The only thing I have found is pageHeight but that can
only be tested and not set.
Select your text field sprite on stage. Go to the property
inspector, choose the text/field tab (depending whether your member
is a text or field member - they're different!). Then under
framing, choose 'fixed'. You can then resize the vertical height of
the sprite as you would any other.
