[AS3] Textarea not scrolling horizontal
textArea problem with images. Is there a way to force a horizontal scroll width?
I have a SWF that loads an image into a testArea. I am finding that textAreas are not good for images.
Anyway, the image url is passed to the SWF by an IMG tag from an HTML page.
Tha image shows up but the textArea does not recognize the size of the image so scrolling is not enabled. I have tried to force the scroll policy on, which only shows a 'holder' of the scroll bar but you can not scroll.
I tricked the vertical scroll on by adding a bunch of break code (br). This allows the user to scroll up and down.
My question is, is there a way to trick the textArea into thinking that it is wide and needs to scroll horizontally?
I've tried padding but I might be doing something wrong there, or it might simply not work. I've tried a few things like textWidth but they are read only.
I am going crazy with this problem!
