Formatting Examples   Leave a comment

I’m working on some formatting examples right now. I chose and interesting palette for my tests and after some consideration I decided to do the tests in Flash itself, instead of an image editor.

It seemed like the easiest thing to do would be to use Flash’s built in HTML and CSS to do the text formatting, but to my surprise the HTML and CSS implementations in Flash are very basic and feature light. Well, I’m going to try it anyways.

Well I’ve done a lot of work and I have some interesting results. But I’m also having an interesting bug. I’ve got two TextField objects in a Sprite on the Stage, and the second TextField object refuses to use the stylesheet. Even when I stop the first TextField from using the stylesheet and asign it directly to the second TextField, it won’t use it. I don’t know what’s up with that. o.o;;

Huh, it works if I put the second one all in a paragraph tag.

Oh well anyways I’m out of time. I’d like to put up a screenshot of what I’ve got so far but the library is closing. I’ll try to have something to show next time.
