    htmlText and maxWidth

    XXIlladelphia Level 1
      For some reason, when I create an <mx:Text> component, and set the htmlText, the maxWidth property seems to function awkwardly.

      it does set the maxwidth of the Text component, but the text runs off the screen (when the width is cut).

      Any ideas?

          Never seen it before (but I rarely use maxWidth).. that might be because I saw weird behaviors myself when I did use it, so maybe I just wrote it off as buggy.

          Only thing I could suggest is that you could take a look at what the Flex SDK code is doing when it calculates the width. Might be painful and time consuming, sucks I know.
