Ok, maybe it’s my fault. I usually push for feature requests once I feel I’ve reached the comfort plateu with the current version of Flash. However, I severely dropped the ball on this one, so I urge you now to please help me rectify the situation.
Please, add a request to the <a href=”http://www.macromedia.com/support/email/wishform/?6213=9″>Flash wish-list</a> for Macromedia to implement a return value for createTextField, that value being the text field just created; similiar to attachMovie/createEmptyMovieClip/mc.duplicateMovieClip.
This is frikin’ ridiculous, and I don’t know how it slipped past in this version of Flash as there, I thought, were many of us befuddled by it in 6. Maybe that was it… a minor annoyance, but not as profound as right click. At any rate, let’s not wait for Flash 9 before this is rectified, please!
