It is possible. Generally I would think you should start with the help files. Check out the following classes:
Read every method, property, and event. Pretty much that is what you got to work with. (Of course I don't have Flash 8 and I think it might have a few more text related classes.)
It is kind of a big project, but totally doable. Of course it really depends upon how advanced a text editor you want to make it. My advice is to take it one step at a time. Perhaps work on inserting and deleting first. Or perhaps just changing some basic formatting like bold and italic.
thank you, yes i agree and that is what i am doing (going through help).
I just wonder if anyone out there has created something like this and has been willing to share ideas...
I assume that it is rather difficult, due to the lack of results when i search this topic here and elsewhere.
( i am a relative beginner) it would be a pretty basic editor, but ultimately would have to be able to output the info regarding text sizes, colors etc. as css, or variables... uff
I've only ever seen a few posts here. And never paid them too much mind because it wasn't something I was doing.
Good luck and post back with your triumphs and stumbling blocks.
