Dynamically setting the TextField size according to read Text

Hi all,

I am reading some text from a file. I load it into a textfield and that textfield is in a movieclip which in turn is in a scrollpane.

The problem is the text size varies. And I want to be able to view the whole text. How can I automatically set the size (or height) of the textfield to the size of what I read? (that might have little bits of HTML).

Thanks in advance

umm, I think there is something wrong here.

I tried to create some data file like this...


** any crap here **
and at the end

(a number of tabs, like 20-30) and then any text.

The text after the tab disappears.

What I am trying to say is that it works perfectly; however, it has some bug, I guess.

In the text file, put 20 or 30 (tabs). When I did that, the text following the tabs disappeared.

Hope that's clear.

I have tried with this text:

content=I am reading some text from a file. I load it into a textfield                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       and that textfield is in a movieclip which in turn is in a scrollpane.
