I've a manually created text field, newsText_tf, into which I am able to load text. The text file, "writeUp1.txt", is definitely getting loaded, but the CSS styling found in "newsStyle.css" in not getting applied, or loaded at all.
I slipped in a few trace commands and supposed the CSS is getting loaded, or at least the function in which the trace code is found is getting read.
Anyway, here's the code:
I don't know if it means anything, but when I Test the movie, the "CSS loaded" trace is displayed first in the Output panel.
var navBanNews:URLRequest = new URLRequest("content_news/writeUp1.txt");
var newsLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(navBanNews);
var cssLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
//Load the text file ("writeUp1.txt")
var newsLoaded:URLLoader = URLLoader(event.target);
newsBox_mc.newsText_tf.htmlText = newsLoaded.data;
//Load the CSS file ("newsStyle.css")
var newsStyleRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("content_news/newsStyle.css");
var newsStyle:StyleSheet = new StyleSheet();
newsBox_mc.newsText_tf.styleSheet = newsStyle;
newsBox_mc.newsText_tf.wordWrap = true;
trace("CSS load complete!");
