    Code:
    // Creating textfield text format
    fieldTextFormat = new TextFormat();
    fieldTextFormat.font = "Arial";
    fieldTextFormat.bold = false;
    fieldTextFormat.italic = false;
    fieldTextFormat.align = "left";		
    	
    // Creating the base textfield
    createTextField("mytext", 1, 200, 100, 200, 150);
    mytext.multiline = true;
    mytext.wordWrap = true;
    mytext.border = true;
    mytext.html = false;
    mytext.type = "input";
    mytext.selectable = true;	
    mytext.text = thetext;
    mytext.autosize = "left";
    mytext.borderColor = 0xaaaaaa;
    mytext.text = "Test the format object!";
    mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);
    
    // Set labelös of the button components
    bold_button.setLabel("bold");
    italic_button.setLabel("italic");
    left_button.setLabel("LEFT");
    center_button.setLabel("center");
    right_button.setLabel("right");
    
    // Set font provider
    myfonts=TextField.getFontList();
    fontList.setDataProvider(myfonts);
    fontList.setSize(300);
    fontList.setSelectedIndex(20);
    
    // set font-size provider
    fontSizes =  new Array(6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,24,28,32,40,48,56,64);
    fontSize.setDataProvider(fontSizes);
    fontList.setSelectedIndex(4);
    
    // change font when new one selected
    fontList.setChangeHandler("myHandler");
    function myHandler(component){
       fieldTextFormat.font = fontList.getSelectedItem().label; 
       mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);
    }
    
    // change font-size when new one selected
    fontSize.setChangeHandler("myHandler2");
    function myHandler2(component){
       fieldTextFormat.size = fontSize.getSelectedItem().label; 
       mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);
    }
    
    // Functions for the buttons
    function makeBold(){
    	if (fieldTextFormat.bold){
    		fieldTextFormat.bold = false;
    		bold_button.setLabel("bold");
    	} else {
    		fieldTextFormat.bold = true;
    		bold_button.setLabel("BOLD");
    	}
    	mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);
    }
    function makeItalic(){
    	if (fieldTextFormat.italic){
    		fieldTextFormat.italic = false;
    		italic_button.setLabel("italic");
    	} else {
    		fieldTextFormat.italic = true;
    		italic_button.setLabel("ITALIC");
    	}
    	mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);
    }
    function makeLeft(){
    	fieldTextFormat.align = "left";
    	left_button.setLabel("LEFT");
    	center_button.setLabel("center");
    	right_button.setLabel("right");
    	mytext.setTextFormat(fieldTextFormat);

    I don't know what you mean, but you can set a textFormat object for every textfield. You can also set an onChanged handler for a textfield, so if something changes, you can make whatever you want.

    Much more on all this with the new version - later.

    Yup!

    TextField.onKillFocus = function (newFocus) {
    statements;
    };

    Description

    Event handler; an event that is invoked when a text field loses keyboard focus. The onKillFocus method receives one parameter, newFocus, which is an object representing the new object receiving the focus. If no object receives the focus, newFocus contains the value null.

    Code:
    MovieClip.prototype.makeText = function(xPos,yPos,myText,myFont,mySize,myColor){
    	this.createEmptyMovieClip("empty",j++);
    	this.empty.createTextField("text_txt",j++,xPos,yPos,0,0);
    	this.empty.text_txt.autoSize = true;
    	this.empty.text_txt.text = myText;
    	this.empty.text_txt.selectable = false;
    	this.empty.myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
    	this.empty.myTextFormat.font = myFont;
    	this.empty.myTextFormat.size = mySize;
    	this.empty.myTextFormat.color = myColor;
    	this.empty.text_txt.setTextFormat(this.empty.myTextFormat);
    }
    just a prototype with simple formatting

    ALL HTML-FORMAT TAGS:

    The following HTML tags are supported in text fields:
    Code:
    <*A>, <*B>, <*FONT COLOR>, <*FONT FACE>, <*FONT SIZE>, <*I>, <*P>, and <*U>.
    (without the "*" of course)

    But how can we set leading, indent ... ?

    The way to do this is to use the "TEXTFORMAT" tag:

    Code:
    <*TEXTFORMAT LEFTMARGIN=\"1\" RIGHTMARGIN=\"1\" LEADING=\"2\"><*P ALIGN=\"CENTER\"><*FONT FACE=\"_sans\" SIZE=\"12\" COLOR=\"#000000\">Some text<*/FONT><*/P><*/TEXTFORMAT>
    (without all the "*" of course)

    Nice, isn't it?

    Fredi

    <TEXTFORMAT LEFTMARGIN=\"1\" RIGHTMARGIN=\"1\" LEADING=\"2\"><P ALIGN=\"CENTER\"><FONT FACE=\"Arial\" SIZE=\"72\" COLOR=\"#12aacc\"><B>SUBWAY FOREVER!!!!</B></FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>^^^ real HTML text, not a swf ^^^^

    I have recoded the hole puppy! It's not perfect (align not implemented), but you can write text, change the font, size, ... of the selected part of the text ...

    Things to come are:
    - align (of course)
    - font and size selector jumps to the right selections when you click into the textfield
    - some other bugs

    [swf width="550" height="300" background="#FFFFFF"]http://www.zh-webdesign.ch/zoa/autosize.swf[/swf].

    N'Joy!
