for example I have a linkbutton txtIt
var metrics1:TextLineMetrics = measureText(txtIt.label); trace(metrics1.width);
I use the width and the textbox width to calculate the amount of lines in a textbox. With numLines I can calculate where to place the next item on the y axis.
However if a piece of text grabbed from the database has spaces it throws the calculations off.
Ideally i would want a way to have the user format text in an input field, upload it to the database, and retain the formatting when retrieving the text back into flex.
