    Adding a TABSTOP character into a RichEditableText component

    smon_ed Level 1

      I am placing html text, loaded from a database, into a RichEditableText component.

       

      instance.textFlow = TextConverter.importToFlow(txtString, TextConverter.TEXT_FIELD_HTML_FORMAT);

       

      The loaded text contains tab characters but they are not displaying.

       

      I have tried to find a solution by saving my text to database with the tab characters replaced with a custom string like ~tab~

       

      I then am using a search-and-replace function to replace all of the instances of ~tab~ with a tabstop character.

       

      But I still can't get the character to display.  "\t" doesn't workand nor does anything else I have tried.

       

      Any ideas what I can do to get the tabstops to display?  *confused*
