    Question about textField


      Hi, everyone,

      I got a problem on set Front style



      var statusTextField:TextField = new TextField();
      var style:StyleSheet = new StyleSheet();
      var heading:Object = new Object();
      heading.fontSize = 72;

      style.setStyle(".heading", heading);

      statusTextField.text = "You have seconds to write your response.";



      I don`t know where is the problem is,

      The text is on the layer,

      but the font style is not the one I want,

      it just used the standard text style
      Can anyone help me???

          A few things... styles are associated with html, so that's one aspect you're missing (htmlText).  And like html code, your styles are prescribed via the tag parameters (span class).   And you should assign the styles for the textfield before you assign the text.


          statusTextField.htmlText = "<span class='heading'>You have seconds to write your response.</span> ";

              Then you will want to assign the wordWrap and the width properties of your textfield as well.  You should read thru the TextField class in the Flash help documents to become familiar with all of the properties and methods (etc) that support it.
