    Can a movie clip be added to a textarea component?

    woodtah
      I have a movie clip (content_mc) that contains a textarea component. I have attached a movie clip to to content_mc and manipulated it to where I want it (it is not fancy, just an object that I colorize and size based on some parameters). I want to use this same object in my textarea component next to the text that I will be displaying -- is it possible to do this? And if so, how? I will most likely have multiple instances of the movie clip (each possibly a different color and sized differently) in my textarea, so I will need to be able to add all of them, as they have been modified, to my textarea component.

      Thanks in advance for any help and/or advice.

          I have done it with TextFields and the documentation also indicates TextArea
          component.
          You might find positioning less than precise.
