    bbcode formatted text (not html)

    I was wondering how I could take text with bbcode in it and format it in a dynamic textbox WITHOUT converting it to HTML tags.

    I would put in this (without the spaces):

    [ b ]Example text![ /b ]
    This would come out like:

    Example text!

    The Flash player to my knowledge only recognizes html tags.

    The flash help files did not show any entries. Google also did not show any results.

    That doesnt matter, with Actionscript, couldn't you make the text in between bold and then remove the tags? I just dont know how.

    if that is what you want to know, no problem. Give your textfield a name like myTextfield and then write this for example.

    var myTextfield:TextField;
    myTextfield.html = true;
    myTextfield.htmlText = "<b>This is bold text.</b>";

    I know how to do that, what I want to do is use actionscript to take the text shown above and convert it to bold text, like the html does, but without making html.
