htmlText problem

I have a textField and I am using it’s .htmlText property. when i set preferences to flash player 6 ‘<br>’ tags do what they are supposed to do and create a new line. if i set preferences to flash player 7 the ‘<br>’ tag does not work. anyone know why. i need to use player 7 becase i need to be able to modify the context menu; so using player six is not an option.


did you set textfield.html = true; ?

yeah, someone else said that player 7 adheres to well formed tags so you have to use <br/>, but it still does not work.

could you post an example of your html text?


forget this thread; i fixed it with a hack.:slight_smile:
