    Text / Field resize

      Hi,
      I want to be able to change the height of a text (or field) sprite with lingo. Thought this would be simple...

      sprite(x).height=y

      ..but this has no effect. Checked the Director help, which suggests. "To specify the height of a field's box on the Stage, set the pageHeight field cast member property." (In the section titled "Formatting text boxes with Lingo or JavaScript syntax").

      This didn't work and when I checked the help page for 'pageHeight' I discovered that "This property can be tested but not set."

      Does anyone know if this can be done? It seems ridiculous for this not to be possible.

      Thanks,
      Deryck
