Thanks for your reply Chistoffer, I'm afraid it's still not working, the characters appear in my text field.

Here's the code I am using to create the text format and textfield, maybe something here is screwing it up:

                        var myM:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
                        myM.align = "center";
                        myM.font = "Serifa Blk BT";
                        myM.size = 20;
                        myM.color = 0x000000;
                        myM.leading = -5;
                        myM.letterSpacing = -1;
                        //add text to boxes
                        var oline:MovieClip = mainMC.monkey.bubble.outline
var tmpBox:MovieClip = mainMC.monkey.bubble.createEmptyMovieClip ("text_mc", 1); var tmpField:TextField = tmpBox.createTextField("my_txt", 1, oline._x, oline._y, oline._width, oline._height);
                        tmpField.selectable = false;
                        tmpField.border = true;
                        tmpField.embedFonts = true;
                        tmpField.type = "dynamic";
                        tmpField.multiline = true;
                        tmpField.wordWrap = true;       
                        tmpField.text = Q.monkeyStr;
                        tmpField.setTextFormat(myM);

Any suggestions flashers?

Try "\n" or "\r\n"

Thanks guys :) works perfectly.

Now it seems my line returns ("\r") aren't being recognised (they show
up in the textfield).

Anyone got any ideas whats going on?

Cheers

Hi Alistair,

Try adding this to your code:
tmpField.wordWrap = true;

Subject: [Flashcoders] Why isn't my TextField multiline? AS2

Hi there, thanks for checking this.

I'm generating a textfield from within a custom class but I can't
seem to make it multiline, I can see the border of the textfield is
the right size my text only appears on the first line and also my
carriage returns "\r" are having no effect.
I've tried a number of options for properties of the textfield but I
cant seem to get it to work.

Any suggestions thankfully received this is taking lots of time for a
simple thing!
Cheers,
Ali



Here's the code from within my class:




            var oline:MovieClip = mainMC.monkey.bubble.outline
            var tmpBox:MovieClip =
mainMC.monkey.bubble.createEmptyMovieClip
("text_mc", 1);
            var tmpField:TextField =
tmpBox.createTextField("my_txt", 1,
oline._x, oline._y, oline._width, oline._height);
            tmpField.selectable = false;
            tmpField.border = true;
            tmpField.embedFonts = true;
            tmpField.type = "dynamic";
            tmpField.multiline = true;
            tmpField.text = Q.monkeyStr;
            tmpField.setTextFormat(myM);
