I need to create a string variable that has a set of preset values, just like verticalAlign that has top, bottm, and middle.
I know this is pretty fundamental but can someone point me to a small example such as a class? thanks.
I think that what you're looking for is a control that allows you to present text with preset values, you could use a mx:Text or mx:TextArea and css to format the controls appereance or just using in-line properties.
