    selective color manipulation

    FlashForumName Level 1
      Hello all. I've been browsing the forums looking for an answer to a curiosity of mine but to no avail. I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to do something like this with AS 2.0:

      - The stage contains a text area component filled with random text
      - The user wants to change some of the text color from say black to red, but only some of it
      - So, much like Microsoft Word, the user highlights the section of the text they want changed and that's where my question arises...

      Is there any way to tell what text in the textarea component the user has highlighted so you could change that specific section of the text's color? Not the entire thing, just what is highlighted. Is there any way to do this in AS 2.0? Thanks in advance!
