Default Passing properties to constructor ?

Beginner question here...

Is it possible to define 'public properties' of an object in the constructor method when you create the object ? similar to..

var leftmain_scrollertext = new TextField({length:10});

I have a TextField and I want to set its maxChars, x, y, width etc.

when I specify one or more of these I get...
1137: Incorrect number of arguments. Expected no more than 0.

am I forced to specify each property I want individually after I have constructed it ?

The constructor is the one chosing what arguments it takes, not the code instantiating the class. There is no generic method to do what you want to do. Just deal with it.
