Experts,

Im struggling to set a dynamic text field to bold at run time. I have the following code:

on (rollOver) {
      this.ans1_txt.textColor = 0xff0000;
      this.ans1_txt.bold=true;
}

The first line successfully sets the color, but the second line fails to embolden...

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards

Try the following instead:

<code>

-V
on (rollOver) {
	var textFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
	textFormat.color = 0xFF0000;
	textFormat.bold = true;
	this.ans1_txt.setTextFormat(textFormat);
}

Open in new window
