SWFTextField -- Creates a text field object


SWFTextField swftextfield ( [int flags] )


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

swftextfield() creates a new text field object. Text Fields are less flexible than swftext() objects- they can't be rotated, scaled non-proportionally, or skewed, but they can be used as form entries, and they can use browser-defined fonts.

The optional flags change the text field's behavior. It has the following possibles values :

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_DRAWBOX draws the outline of the textfield


  • SWFTEXTFIELD_HTML allows text markup using HTML-tags

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_MULTILINE allows multiple lines

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_NOEDIT indicates that the field shouldn't be user-editable

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_NOSELECT makes the field non-selectable

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_PASSWORD obscures the data entry

  • SWFTEXTFIELD_WORDWRAP allows text to wrap

Flags are combined with the bitwise OR operation. For example,
creates a totally useless non-editable password field.

SWFTextField has the following methods : swftextfield->setfont(), swftextfield->setbounds(), swftextfield->align(), swftextfield->setheight(), swftextfield->setleftmargin(), swftextfield->setrightmargin(), swftextfield->setmargins(), swftextfield->setindentation(), swftextfield->setlinespacing(), swftextfield->setcolor(), swftextfield->setname() and swftextfield->addstring().
