NAME

       SWF::TextField - SWF TextField class

SYNOPSIS

               use SWF::TextField;
               $textfield = new SWF::TextField([$flags]);

DESCRIPTION

       Unlike SWF::Text objects, TextFields cannot be rotated, scaled non-proportionally, or
       skewed. However, TextFields can be used as form entries and they can use browser-defined
       fonts.

NOTES:

           TextField is implemented into Flash since Flash3.
           Most of features for TextFields are available since Flash4.
           Simple HTML-tags in TextField are possible since Flash5.

METHODS

       new SWF::TextField([$flags]);
           Creates a TextField object whose behaviour is dictated by "flags" (see also
           SWF::Constants):

             SWFTEXTFIELD_NOEDIT:        Non-editable Textfiled
             SWFTEXTFIELD_PASSWORD:      Obscure user input with astricts.
             SWFTEXTFIELD_DRAWBOX:       Draw a border around TextField
             SWFTEXTFIELD_MULTILINE:     TextFiels may contain multiple lines
             SWFTEXTFIELD_WORDWRAP:      Warp text when text reaches TextField border
             SWFTEXTFIELD_NOSELECT:      TextField is not selected when user clicks on it
             SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_LEFT:    Align text to the left
             SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_RIGHT:   Align text to the right
             SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_CENTER:  Align text to the center
             SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_JUSTIFY: Justify text
             SWFTEXTFIELD_HTML:          Add HTML markup string
             SWFTEXTFIELD_HASLENGTH:
             SWFTEXTFIELD_USEFONT:       Want to embed font
             SWFTEXTFIELD_AUTOSIZE:

           Flags may be combined with the bitwise OR operation. For example:

               my $t = new SWF::TextField(SWFTEXTFIELD_MULTILINE | SWFTEXTFIELD_WORDWRAP);

       $textfield->addString($string)
       $textfield->addUTF8String($UTF8string)
           Add $string to TextField. Text is appended to the existing text.

       $textfield->align($alignment)
       $textfield->setAlignment($alignment)
           Set the alignment of the text in the textfield. Possible values are

                   SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_LEFT
                   SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_RIGHT
                   SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_CENTER
                   SWFTEXTFIELD_ALIGN_JUSTIFY

           By default a SWF::TextField ist left aligned.

       $textfield->setColor($red, $green, $blue [, $alpha])
           Set the color of the text. An 8 bit value for each parameter. You can use the hex or
           decimal notation. Even mixed.

                   $tf->setColor(204,0,51,255);

       $textfield->setFont($font)
           Sets an SWF::Font object -$font- to be used in the TextField.

       $textfield->addUTF8Chars($UTF8string)
           Adds characters to a font that will be available within a textfield.
