    Resize MC based on loaded dynamic text?

    Hey All,
    I am looking to resize a tab movieclip that I have behind a dynamic text field. I would like to rezize the tab movieclip based on the character amount or width. Can someone please help me out or point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if you're trying to resize the tab movieclip based on the text in the tab, or the text it's behind, but either way, with the text you want to measure, set autoSize to true, then you can check its _width and _height, do whatever calculations you need to do, and apply it to the tab.

    I can't be any more specific than that unless you're more specific.

    I figured it out. Thanks for your help.

    This is what I did...

    myMC.myTabBG._width = myMC.myDynamicTxt._width

    Thanks,
    Zach
