TextArea troubles

Hi there,

how come when trying to see the text Formatting of a text area the following code, when tracing _curFormat traces [object TextFormat]. What does this mean?

I need to find out if the selected text is bold or not. This will allow the user to set it bold or set it non bold.

private function bold():void
	_selStart = myArea.selectionBeginIndex;
	_selEnd = myArea.selectionEndIndex;
	var _textBold:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
	var _curFor:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
	_textBold.bold = true;			
	_curFor = myArea.textField.getTextFormat(_selStart, _selEnd);
	myArea.textField.setTextFormat(_textBold, _selStart, _selEnd);
