moving text

Recommended Posts



With textfields the default behavior is to have the move cursor only show up when you hover over the edge of the bounds rect + 10px. Is there a way to have text be 'movable' no matter where you hover over it? I thought about wrapping it in a Sprite but I want to preserve the behavior of the textfield scaling (font size remains visually the same)

I suppose you could create a custom class that extends Sprite, put your TextField into it, and then override the width and height getters/setters so that they alter the TextField's width/height properties. Kinda like a proxy of sorts. And don't forget to make sure that when you addItem() your Sprite (wrapper), you set the scaleMode to WIDTH_AND_HEIGHT.
