I am not sure, however, about the border property. I need to
be able to define its width, and the changes with regard to the
focus as I have indicated above.
I am also not sure about where to place this script. Do I
click on the TextArea itself and paste it into the Actions Script
panel? Or do I need to create a new layer especially for this
component and then paste it into the AS panel (I have AS2 with MX
At the moment the form comprises two layers: one for the
form/server side of things, and the other for the text decoration
itself. The AS for this is:
I did originally have an input text box (with message_txt as
the instance name), but I could not get the scrollbar in the
Components library to work with it.
I needed to insert in the Target TextField my instance name
(message_txt), but the Components scrollbar only offered
_targetInstanceName, so I suspected it would not work - and it
didn't. Then I thought TextArea would be a better idea.
