    how to add a <a href=""></a> to my textarea

    miguel8312 Level 3


      im using a flex 4.5 to build an application however for the first time ever i came across something i just can't seem to wrap my head around. Typically i wwould use the link button for this but now i actually need to insert a link within text. in other words like html i would  do  <p> this is me testing <a href="http://www.adobe.com"> </a></p> Im stuck. can someone point me in the right direction. Im in a  bit of a time constraint and all i want to do is take a string variable and do somehting like 

      public var string:String = <a href=www.yahoo.com> yahoo</a>

      and add it to my text area as a link.

      any ideas?
