TextArea and ScrollBar issue

Hi there fellow Kirupians!

I’ve been working on a little something that loads external HTML files via XML into a TextArea and it works great. I’ve been able to delete the background of the TextArea with TextArea.background = false; But now I want the borders to dissapear too. Any ideas?

I’m using the TextArea component because if I make a normal textarea with the texttool, it won’t show a scrollbar if the text is too big. Does anyone know why? I can’t seem to customize the scrollbar of the TextArea component 'cause it doesn’t show up in the library. I do know how to customize a regular scrollbar component, but is it possible to only let it show if the text in the textarea it refers to is to large?

PS: I’m using Flash MX 2004 Professional
