    TextArea And Html..only editable ?

    Barno7 Level 1


      i want do a TextArea with HtmlText inside, i follow this Example inside the documentation:




      this is works, but if i do a textArea non editable, i can't scroll the content. i try use init instead creationComplete, the scroll works, but the textArea content is bottom

          If I understand you question properly.... and assuming you are indeed talking about the mobile Flex not web...

          There is a property called verticalScrollPolicy that you need to enable

          i.e. verticalScrollPolicy='on'


          However I think you would be better off using StageWebView

          Something like


          protected var myHtml:StageWebView = new StageWebView;


          protected function init():void{

          myHtml.stage = stage;

          myHtml.viewPort = new Rectangle(0,0,100,100);





          Someone else may be able to do it but I think editable html at this point is beyond the pale... things like Rich Text are not supported in the Mobile components that are currently available.

              i use this code


              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

              <!-- mobile_text/HTMLTextView.mxml -->

              <s:View xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"

              xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" title="HTMLText View"






              protected var webView:StageWebView = new StageWebView();


              protected var counter:int = 0;


              protected var url:String = "http://coenraets.org/webview/index.html";


              protected function addedToStageHandler():void


              var styles:String = "p { color: #33CCFF; font-size:30;}";

              var myStyleSheet:StyleSheet = new StyleSheet();


              var pippo:String =  "<!DOCTYPE HTML>" +

              "<html>" +

              "<body>" +

              "<h1 style='background: blue; color: white;'>Title</h1>" +

              "<p>Hello World.</p>" +

              "</body>" +



              webView.stage = stage;

              webView.viewPort = new Rectangle(0,100,600,30);










              with this code, i see the text with background and color, but:


              - the scrollbar is not that of texr field?

              - how can i associate the file css?
