    Multi-coloured text in dynamic text field

    Hi

    I need to create a text field with Actionscript that is comprised of text in 2 colours. Is this possible (maybe with textformat)?

    Thanks in advance

    I'd really like to know if this is possible or not.

    Thanks

    is this what you seek ?
    Code:
    this.createTextField("mytext", 10, 300, 200, 10, 10);
    mytext.autoSize = true;
    mytext.html = true;
    mytext.htmlText = "Hello Mum :)<br>"+
    "<p align='center'>Hello<br>World";
    mytext.textColor = 0x00FF00;
    
    format = new TextFormat();
    format.color = 0xFF0000;
    format.size = 25;
    mytext.setTextFormat(6,18,format);

    Thanks modified dog - this looks promising. I take it I can use this with an embedded font too?

    Cheers

    Sure can.
    Link your font in the Library and use its identifier name

    mytext.embedFonts = true;

    format.font = "web"; // Linkage name of font
