    TextFlow into multiple RichEditableText containers keeping container styles

    mendozm Level 1

      I'm stumped.

       

      Can anyone help me to flow text into multiple RichEditableText contianers with different styles applied to each container?  When I use the following code, it works for flowing text between the containers but it does not adopt the styles of the RichEditableText objects that I attach.

       

      var textFlow:TextFlow;

      textFlow = TextConverter.importToFlow("one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen", TextConverter.PLAIN_TEXT_FORMAT);

      textFlow.flowComposer.addController(new ContainerController(richTextEditor1, richTextEditor1.width, richTextEditor1.height));

      textFlow.flowComposer.addController(new ContainerController(richTextEditor2, richTextEditor2.width, richTextEditor2.height));

      textFlow.flowComposer.updateAllControllers();

       

      I have tried to apply styles directly to the ContainerControllers with no success.  I can apply a style to the TextFlow but it uses that style for the all containers where the text is flowing into.

       

      If I attach the textFlow object directly to the textFlow property in the RichEditableText object, it will keep the formatting of the RichEditableText.  But then I can't figure out how to make it flow to the next text box.

       

      I even tried adding the additional controller (attached to the second RichEditableText) to the TextFlow after attaching it to the first RichEditableText object.  No luck.

       

      I hope this is a stupid qustion and there is a simple answer.  Any help is appreciated.

       

      Thank you!
