ActionScript 3.0 :: Attaching A CSS Stylesheet To An XML File?

I was wondering if this can be done? I want to format my content that's in an XML file, being loaded to a dynamic text box using AS3? I've been trying to do this and find any information on the this task. When I put everything together the XML file shows up in the dynamic text box without any styles being applied to it. (As if its ignoring it.)

var cssLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
var cssRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("content.css");

ActionScript 2.0 :: Attaching Stylesheet To Multiple Text Boxes?
I've got a flash project with an empty content clip instance called content_mc. Depending on the button pressed, it attaches a movieclip from the library with the name contentDisplay_mc under content_mc. Now the structure of these subclips are pretty much the same with a textbox called Display. The code on Frame 1 of main timeline:

//tell Flash to display special characters
var cssStyles = new TextField.StyleSheet();
var generic_lv = new LoadVars();

ActionScript 3.0 :: TextFormat Vs StyleSheet?
I am working on a large project that displays a fair amount of to best handle the formatting of the text globally? what is the best way to handle the text formatting on a global level ? Through the TextFormat class, through style sheets, a combination of these two depending on the specific situation ?

Is it a best practice for large projects to use style sheets for all of the texts ? Implying that all texts must be written with tags.Using only style sheets seems like the best approach at this time to me but before going into coding this approach on a large scale in my project,

ActionScript 3.0 :: GC When Setting StyleSheet?
I don't know how to test this and I think I'm over thinking it, but here is the situation:Let's say I have a styleSheet that is assigned as a public static var of a Class.Then, in various other Classes, I'm dynamically creating TextFields and assigning their styleSheet property to the static styleSheet varI eventually remove those said TextFields from the DisplayObject they're on and delete all references. Even though they've been removed/cleared, are they retained in memory because they still contain reference to the static var styleSheet? i.e. should I be setting textField.styleSheet=null; before removing?

ActionScript 3.0 :: StyleSheet Adding To TextHeight?
When I add a style to some text it seems to changed the textHeight even though there is not any extra characters in my text. When I do a test before adding the style its 16.9 height then after the style is added it goes to 31.9. why this is happening and if there is a way to stop this from happening.


label.fld.styleSheet = setCSS();
private function setCSS():StyleSheet {
var bold:Object = new Object();

ActionScript 3.0 :: Using Formatted TextFields With StyleSheet
I have some text fields which have to be displayed with a style I have previously loaded from a CSS document. There are two choices to choose from, but both have some hitch I cannot resolve by myself:

- If I decide to embed a font and use it along with the other CSS properties, I don't know how to associate this font to the text field, because if I do this: myTextField.embedFonts = true, no text is displayed.

- If I decide not to embed fonts, so that I use the CSS font-family property, I've checked that the text is not displayed the same way in different monitors: while in my PC it is displayed smooth and sharp, in another appears kind of jagged. Moreover the animations of non-embedded fonts are not the best option (the text must have an animation which includes a mix of fading and scale).

ActionScript 2.0 :: Textfield.StyleSheet Not Working (CSS)?
The tutorials for using CSS in Flash seem pretty straightforward, but for some reason they just don't work for me. I'm using this code:

this.createTextField("myText", 1, 100, 100, 300, 100);
myText.multiline = true;
myText.wordWrap = true;
myText.html = true;


When I Debug>Variables, there is one line in particular that seems to be the key:

Variable _level0.myFormat = undefined

ActionScript 2.0 :: Attach A StyleSheet To A TextField?
I am trying to attach a styleSheet to a textField. If I have a tag defined in the css file it will not show in the textField. all the other text is there just not the link (a {font-weight: bold;} is the only thing in my css file).

I tried adding a <p> tag to the text and the css - then all my text disappeared.I deleted everything out of the css file (while still attaching it to the textField in flash). and all my text showed including the link, which worked. But it naturally had no style.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Load Html With A Stylesheet?
I have a text area, content_txt, that I load html with a stylesheet into using this code:

//code for loading CSS and text into swf;
function getRotatorStyles() {[code]....

The problem is that content_txt.maxscroll always returns 1, but I know from testing that the actual value is 121. content_txt.htmlText .maxscroll, content_txt.text.maxscroll, content_txt._text.maxscroll, all return undefined. How can I get an accurate value of maxscroll for this text area? I need it to get a custom scroll bar to work correctly.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Odd Behavior With HtmlText, StyleSheet, And <a>?
I have a programmatically-generated text field that looks like this:

var tf:TextField=new TextField();


Has anyone else noticed this odd behavior? It's too distracting and unprofessional-looking to leave the way it is, but I'm not sure what my alternatives are if I want to include links in the text (which is imported from an XML file).

this is in Flash CS3. EDIT: If I don't embed the fonts, the "problem" goes away; however, I'm left with non-embedded fonts.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Stylesheet Equivilant Of SetTextFormat?
Is there a way of changing the styles of parts of a text using stylesheets, but without giving each part its own class? (Like you can do with setTextFormat by supplying the start and end character indexes). Or is there just another way of achieving the same result without using setTextFormat because you can't use it on a textfield that has a stylesheet applied to it?

ActionScript 3.0 :: StyleSheet Effect Does Not Work
How can I refresh the textfield to effect stylesheet on it. My problem is, I have to assign a StyleSheet after assigned a htmlText assignment. I mean, if you set a stylesheet after htmlText assignment it is work, but if you assign stylesheet before assignment a html text it is not effect.

HTML Code:
import flash.text.TextField;
import flash.text.StyleSheet;
var myLabel:TextField = new TextField();
var labelText:String="<span class='defStyle'>Hello world.</span>";
var newStyle:StyleSheet = new StyleSheet();
