    Displaying Text as HTML in the UIscrollbar component

    SCgroove Level 1

      Greetings.

       

      I have a window on my Flash stage that has some scrollable copy in it.  The problem is, I can't seem to have any formatting for the text ... if I select a word or two to make bold, it all turns bold.  I gather I need to use the "Display Text as HTML" checkbox and then paste in some HTML formatted text but this doesn't seem to work.  I searched this forum and found that others were designating "htmlText" in Actionscript instead of just "text" ... that didn't work either.  I probably just did it wrong, or maybe it's becuase I'm using the UI component "UIscrollBar" for it's scrolling of the text.

       

      Is there anything else I need to do to be able to format some text with strong tags and maybe some href links?

       

      I have my properties inspector with the following check marks:

       

      Display as HTML

      Multiline

      Dynamic Text

      selectable

       

      Thanks everyone.
