InheritanceScrollText Inheritance Scroller Inheritance FeathersControl Inheritance starling.display.Sprite
Implements INativeFocusOwner

Product Version : Feathers 1.0.0

Displays long passages of text in a scrollable container using the runtime's software-based flash.text.TextField as an overlay above Starling content on the classic display list. This component will always appear above Starling content. The only way to put something above ScrollText is to put something above it on the classic display list.

Meant as a workaround component for when TextFieldTextRenderer runs into the runtime texture limits.

Since this component is rendered with the runtime's software renderer, rather than on the GPU, it may not perform very well on mobile devices with high resolution screens.

The following example displays some text:

var scrollText:ScrollText = new ScrollText();
scrollText.text = "Hello World";
this.addChild( scrollText );

Event Detail
triggered Event
Event Object Type: starling.events.Event
Event.type property = starling.events.Event.TRIGGERED

Dispatched when an anchor (<a>) element in the HTML text is triggered when the href attribute begins with "event:". This event is dispatched when the internal flash.text.TextField dispatches its own TextEvent.LINK.

The data property of the Event object that is dispatched by the ScrollText contains the value of the text property of the TextEvent that is dispatched by the flash.text.TextField.

The following example listens for Event.TRIGGERED on a ScrollText component:

var scrollText:ScrollText = new ScrollText();
scrollText.text = "<a href=\"event:hello\">Hello</a> World";

textFormatstyle 
textFormat:TextFormat

Advanced font formatting used to draw the text if fontStyles cannot be used.

If this property is not null, the fontStyles property will be ignored.

Note: It is considered best practice to use the fontStyles property and starling.text.TextFormat for font formatting. The textFormat property is available for advanced uses where features of flash.text.TextField that are not exposed by Starling's TextFormat need to be customized. In most cases, these advanced features are not required.

In the following example, the text is formatted:

scrollText.textFormat = new TextFormat( "_sans", 16, 0x333333 );

The default value is null.

styleSheetstyle 
styleSheet:StyleSheet

The StyleSheet object to pass to the TextField.

In the following example, a style sheet is applied:

var style:StyleSheet = new StyleSheet();
var heading:Object = new Object();
heading.fontWeight = "bold";
heading.color = "#FF0000";
var body:Object = new Object();
body.fontStyle = "italic";
style.setStyle(".heading", heading);
style.setStyle("body", body);
scrollText.styleSheet = style;
scrollText.isHTML = true;
scrollText.text = "<body><span class='heading'>Hello</span> World...</body>";

The default value is null.

scrollText.sharpness = 200;

The default value is 0.

gridFitTypestyle 
gridFitType:String

Determines whether Flash Player forces strong horizontal and vertical lines to fit to a pixel or subpixel grid, or not at all using the constants defined in the flash.text.GridFitType class. This property applies only if the antiAliasType property of the text field is set to flash.text.AntiAliasType.ADVANCED.

scrollText.gridFitType = GridFitType.SUBPIXEL;

The default value is flash.text.GridFitType.PIXEL.

fontStylesstyle 
fontStyles:TextFormat

The font styles used to display the label's text.

In the following example, the font styles are customized:

label.fontStyles = new TextFormat( "Helvetica", 20, 0xcc0000 );

Note: The starling.text.TextFormat class defines a number of common font styles, but ScrollText supports a larger number of ways to be customized. Use the textFormat property to set more advanced styles on the text renderer. If the textFormat property is not null, the fontStyles property will be ignored.

The default value is null.

embedFontsstyle 
embedFonts:Boolean

If advanced flash.text.TextFormat styles are specified, determines if the component should use an embedded font or not. If the specified font is not actually embedded, the text may not be displayed at all.

If the font styles are passed in using starling.text.TextFormat, the component will automatically detect if a font is embedded or not, and the embedFonts property will be ignored if it is set to false. Setting it to true will force the component to always try to use embedded fonts.

In the following example, some text is formatted with an embedded font:

scrollText.textFormat = new TextFormat( "Source Sans Pro", 16, 0x333333;
scrollText.embedFonts = true;

The default value is false.

See also

displayAsPasswordstyle 
displayAsPassword:Boolean

In the following example, the text is displayed as a password:

scrollText.displayAsPassword = true;

The default value is false.

See also

disabledTextFormatstyle 
disabledTextFormat:TextFormat

Advanced font formatting used to draw the text when the component is disabled if disabledFontStyles cannot be used.

If this property is not null, the disabledFontStyles property will be ignored.

Note: It is considered best practice to use the fontStyles and disabledFontStyles properties with starling.text.TextFormat for font formatting. The textFormat property is available for advanced uses where features of flash.text.TextField that are not exposed by Starling's TextFormat need to be customized. In most cases, these advanced features are not required.

In the following example, the disabled text format is changed:

textRenderer.isEnabled = false;
textRenderer.disabledTextFormat = new TextFormat( "_sans", 16, 0xcccccc );

The default value is null.

See also

disabledFontStylesstyle 
disabledFontStyles:TextFormat

The font styles used to display the label's text when the label is disabled.

If the textFormat property or the disabledTextFormat property is not null, the disabledFontStyles property will be ignored.

In the following example, the disabled font styles are customized:

label.disabledFontStyles = new TextFormat( "Helvetica", 20, 0x999999 );

Note: The starling.text.TextFormat class defines a number of common font styles, but ScrollText supports a larger number of ways to be customized. Use the disabledTextFormat property to set more advanced styles on the text renderer. If the disabledTextFormat property is not null, the disabledFontStyles property will be ignored.

The default value is null.
