Default Change font size to fit Dynamic Text box rather that autoSize Text Box

Hey guys,

First post, I searched and couldn't find an answer to this question, I don't think this has been discussed but if it has I'm sorry.

All the threads I have seen are using autoSize to resize the text field around the text. What I would like to do is lower the font size of the dynamic text to fit the text into the dynamic text field. Is that possible? I saw a thread where they scale a movie clip to fit in an area but isn't what i want to do because it will cause more problems than it fixes.

Thanks in advance.

I see 2 possible ways:
1. to put autoSize to true, and after changing text reset _widht and/or _height of the textbox
2. to try applying different textFormats to the text after it was set/changed via TextField.getTextFormat() -->[recalculate font size]-->TextField.setTextFormat.
The second way is much more slowly but, if you are using bitmap fon anialiasing it'll look better.
