That's what subclassing is for.

I agree with Flex harUI, I just want to add that it's a shame that Adobe didn't add one property instead of three above (excl. the editable). Every time you want to show a hand cursor on any component, you need to set these 3 properties, and it has become some kind of Voodoo code.
Worse - you need to do these also on Button component so that it will look as clickable. That's pure silly.
Thanks for your input. It seems silly to me too, espeicially since I'm not a programmer, but rather a designer who programs. As soon as I figure out what a "subclass" is, I'm certain this will work out fine. harUI knows his/her stuff and has always been "right-on".
I finally understand subclasses - this is going to make development a lot cleaner and efficient.
public class clickableText extends TextArea
public function clickableText()
