one textfield can display a variety of fonts/font sizes and other textformat characteristics using either style sheets or the setTextFormat() method of textfields.
to assign leading zeros, use a string:
yourTF.text = "000";
Thanks for the reply kglad.
Are for saying the best way to display numerically calculated numbers that need leading zeros and or different font sizes is to convert them to a string for display purposes with textFormatting??
the only way you can display "number" the way you want and not the way flash wants, is to use strings.
textformatting was an answer to another question you had about displaying different font sizes in one textfield.
