    creatTextfield issues

    GregConnTelevirtual Level 1

      I'm trying to create dynamic text boxes through actionscript which essentially isn't difficult. But i have 2 issues,

      1. I don't know how much text is going to be in the box so i want to resize the box according to the amount of text. I cant resize the actual text as i need continuity.
      2. I need the position to change in relation to the previous box.

      are either of these things possible and has anyone done them before.

      I've attempted to do this using arrays of text boxes created through textfield and use the _x and _y property of the previous box to decide the _x and _y property of the current box. This doesn't seem to work, it ignores the value of the previous box.

      Any ideas?

      thanks in advance
