TLFTextField borderColor Tween

Recommended Posts

Quick question.


I'm trying to use TweenMax to (smoothly) tween the borderColor property of my TLFTextField from one uint to another, and have had no luck so far. I can't quite figure out where to go from here:



TweenMax.to(textField, 1, borderColor: ?? });


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


I don't have a lot of experience with TLFText as it had lots of issues when it first came out.

However, a quick look at the AS3 docs shows that the TLFTextField must have border = true in order to see the border.


Specifies the color of the text field border. The default value is 0x000000 (black). This property can be retrieved or set, even if there currently is no border, but the color is visible only if the text field has the border property set to true.




If that doesn't help, please provide a very simple fla that we can use for testing. Zip it and attach it to this thread using the "more reply options" buttons.

I did a little exploring. This will work great using the hexColors plugin


import com.greensock.*;

//txt is a TLFTextField on the stage

txt.border = true;
txt.borderColor = 0xff0000;
txt.borderWidth = 12;

TweenMax.to(txt, 4, {hexColors:{borderColor:0x0000ff}});
