dynamic text field height problem - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

hi, i dont remember having issues with this, but recently it's been constantly happening to me.. everytime i try to load external text through a dynamic text field, the text loads properly, but the dynamic text field does not adjust its height to fit the content. for example, i am showing text through a mask to use in conjunction with a scroller. i have the dynamic text field's height manually created to be the same height as the mask. I would assume that once the text loads, the height would adjust, but the field stays the same height as it ...

    Default dynamic text field height problem

    hi, i dont remember having issues with this, but recently it's been constantly
    happening to me..

    everytime i try to load external text through a dynamic text field, the text
    loads properly, but the dynamic text field does not adjust its height to fit
    the content.

    for example, i am showing text through a mask to use in conjunction with a
    scroller. i have the dynamic text field's height manually created to be the
    same height as the mask. I would assume that once the text loads, the height
    would adjust, but the field stays the same height as it was initially set.

    Would appreciate any help i can get..thank you!

    THIS MAY HELP, WHO KNOWS?:
    --Flash displays a handle on the corner of a text block to identify the type
    of text block:

    For static horizontal text blocks that extend, a round handle appears at the
    upper right corner of the text block.

    For static horizontal text blocks with a defined height, a square handle
    appears at the upper right corner of the text block.

    For static vertical text with right-to-left orientation that extends, a round
    handle appears at the lower left corner of the text block.

    For static vertical text with right-to-left orientation and a fixed height, a
    square handle appears at the lower left corner of the text block.

    For static vertical text with left-to-right orientation that extends, a round
    handle appears at the lower right corner of the text block.

    For static vertical text with left-to-right orientation and a fixed height, a
    square handle appears at the lower right corner of the text block.

    For dynamic or input text blocks that extend, a round handle appears at the
    lower right corner of the text block.

    For dynamic or input text with a defined height and width, a square handle
    appears at the lower right corner of the text block.

    For dynamic scrollable text blocks, the round or square handle becomes solid
    black instead of hollow. See Creating scrolling text.

    You can shift-double-click the handle of dynamic and input text fields to
    create text blocks that don't expand when you enter text on the Stage. This
    allows you to create a text block of a fixed size and fill it with more text
    than it can display to create scrolling text. See Creating scrolling text.
