I just asked a very similar question, but I'm trying now to attack the problem from a different view point. If I have a movieclip with text fields and I attach that movie to the stage - can I then add a style sheet format to the text field before adding the text? All the examples I've seen of how to use stylesheets in as3 start with creating the text field in the AS code. I want to apply my stylesheet info to a text field that is already created on the stage.

yes, here is the code to implement inline StyleSheet:


import flash.text.StyleSheet;

var myCSS = new StyleSheet();
var aHover:Object = new Object();
aHover.fontWeight = "bold";
aHover.textDecoration = "underline";
myCSS.setStyle("a:hover",aHover);
var aLink:Object = new Object();
aLink.fontWeight = "normal";
aLink.textDecoration = "none";
myCSS.setStyle("a:link",aLink);

// Assume TextField instance nameis myTxt;

myTxt.styleSheet = myCSS;

you can also load an external .css file and implement it on flash textFields..

"style.css" contents:

a:link {
      color: #FF6600;
      text-decoration: none;
}
a:hover {
      color: #FF6600;
      text-decoration: underline;
}


actionscript code to load the CSS file in flash...

                  import flash.external.*;
                  import flash.display.*;
                  import flash.events.*;
                  import flash.utils.*;
                  import flash.net.*;
                  import flash.text.StyleSheet;

                  var myCSS = new StyleSheet();
                  
                  var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
                  loader.load(new URLRequest("style.css"));

                  loader.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, errorHandler);
                  loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loaderCompleteHandler);

                  function errorHandler(e:IOErrorEvent):void {
                        trace("Couldn't load the style sheet file.");
                  }

                  function loaderCompleteHandler(event:Event):void {
                        myCSS.parseCSS(loader.data);
                  }


// Assume TextField instance nameis myTxt;
myTxt.styleSheet = myCSS;
