NAME ^

SYNOPSIS ^

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

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.

  SWFTEXTFIELD_DRAWBOX:       Draw a border around TextField
  SWFTEXTFIELD_MULTILINE:     TextFiels may contain multiple lines
