    Correct Handler for Fonts and Rich Text Editor

    AlphaBovine Level 1

      Hello all!


      I have now spent the last two weeks going through a LOT of training videos and excersices here on Adobe and Lynda but I am still not really sure the best route to take in order to get this rather unique application to work.


      I am attempting to make an event that will allo a client to not only type in text into a Rich Test Editor field, but to then change the font of that Rich Text Editor field to various fonts: Arial, Trajan Pro, etc. The setting is for greetings cards, invitations etc. The idea is that they can change the font and the font size by selecting it from a drop down menu object or a radio button, etc and it will automatically change the font in the rich text field.


      The problem I am having is that none of the training materials really have any kind of steps for this sort of function at least that I can see. I am not expecting anyone to give me code for my problem but if there is anyone who can point me in the right direction as far as resources/matierals so I can figure it out on my own I would apprecaite it. Thanks!

          Here is my code for reference:


          I have underlined the sections that will be changed. Again, the button "Trajan Pro", when clicked would change the s:RichEditableText box to said font. I just have no idea how to begin to use the right event handler for this as there really isn't a reference for this type of useage that I have been able to find.
