I'm building some functionality to get text from users and save it in a database. For a variety of reasons, we want to use Flash (faster, better way to allow rich text editing with bold, italicized, and underlined).
But we need users to be able to paste into the flash form fields.
In Mozilla/Firefox, this works. In Safari/IE on XP, it doesn't, and the Paste button on the Edit menu is grayed out, suggesting that the browser thinks a flash movie would never need to have something pasted into it, so it doesn't even allow that option.
Is there any way around this? Is there a setting to use in Flash? Is there some way to make the fields "pastable?"
