I'm trying to build a fill-in-the-blanks excercise using flash.
Suppose the excerise is: - I want to eat a bana_ You have to fill in the word "na" of course. The _ would be the inputfield and I would like it to start right after the Textfield. To do this I use the TextField._width to calculate the position. I'm using embedded fonts with htmltext.
Now I've found that sometimes, but not always, the position of the inputfields is off because the _width of the TextField does not seem correct. Also, the width of the Textfield is calculated differently by flash if it is inside a browser or outside of it. I think these problems might be related to eachother.
It's hard to describe, but I hope my example will show the problem. Please try inside a browserwindow and outside of it and see the different _width.
Does anyone have any idea why this is? Am I doing something wrong or is it a flash bug?
