    Default Dynamic text box won't scroll when "render text as HTML" is clicked

    I'm using FLASH MX and I'm trying to create a dynamic text box that loads an external text file, contains clickable links and scrolls.

    I've created the dynamic text box. Since the text has links, I clicked the "render text as HTML" box in properties. The text file loads the way it is supposed to so this part is working. I want the text to also scroll. I've added the scroll bar from the flash components but the text won't scroll. It only scrolls when "render text as HTML" is NOT clicked. I need it to do both and I don't know what to do.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    THANKS!!!!!!

    Default Re:Dynamic text box won't scroll when "render text as HTML" is clicked

    A wild guess -

    There are three ways to get text into a text field:

    1) Through the "variable" name of the field - this doesn't work well with the scrollbars, however
    2) Through the ".text" property - this is probably what you're using
    3) Through the ".htmlText" property - the one you should use if you have the "Render as HTML" button on.

    Hope this helps.
