Auto size text field with Actionscript 3


I am not sure if this is possible, so, please, help me out a little bit over here:

I have an image loaded into the stage:

var miC:Loader = new Loader(); miC.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onComplete); miC.load(new URLRequest("coverph.jpg")); function onComplete(e:Event):void { miC.width = stage.stageWidth; miC.height = stage.stageHeight; miC.x = 0; miC.y = 0; addChild(miC); trace(miC.width, miC.height); }

And this way the image auto size itself to perfectly match the screen resolution (I have tried it with: (all in landscape)

960dp x 720dp 640dp x 480dp 470dp x 320dp 426dp x 320dp 1196dp x 720dp and 720dp x 720dp

They all worked fine (it won´t go over 735)

Now, my question is... let´s say that for the 1196 x 720 I have a textField, a textFormat and a legend that appears on the top of the screen (as a title):

var fmat:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); fmat.font = "Times New Roman"; fmat.size = 105; fmat.color = "0xFF0000"; var titulo:TextField = new TextField(); titulo.x = 145; titulo.y = 30; titulo.width = 1290; titulo.height = 122,10; titulo.defaultTextFormat = fmat; titulo.antiAliasType = AntiAliasType.ADVANCED; titulo.text = "THE TITLE OF WHAT IM DOING"; addChild(titulo);

How do I (if possible) auto size the textField and format to keep the same proportion according to the screen resolution?


Try something like this..

titulo.autoSize = "left"; titulo.text = "THE TITLE OF WHAT IM DOING"; var txt_holder:Sprite = new Sprite(); txt_holder.addChild(titulo); stage.addChild(txt_holder); stage.addEventListener(Event.RESIZE, onStageResize); function onStageResize(e:Event):void { txt_holder.width = stage.stageWidth * 0.8; // 80% width relative to stage txt_holder.scaleY = txt_holder.scaleX; // To keep aspectratio txt_holder.x = stage.stageWidth / 2; txt_holder.y = 10; }


With a few extra settings in your app you could calculate what the scaling factors should be for the x-axis and y-axis based on what the resolution is and then set the scalex and scaley properties of the TextField.
