Triggering events from position in text area?
So I've got a text area. At design time I don't know how big it is and I don't know what text it contains, but I want to be able to trigger events when the user releases the mouse over certain words or parts of the text (these parts are declared when the text is loaded in so I don't know where they are initially)
What I initially thought might work would be creating links in the text and using those to trigger events in the text. Can I create Actionscript links or any other kind of event-triggering objects based purely on text or do I need a way to find the words when the text is rendered and put a button or movieclip there somehow. If it is the latter, any suggestions as to how I migght go about it?
