public leading : Number
An integer that represents the amount of vertical space in pixels (called leading) between lines. The default value is
null, which indicates that the property is undefined.
Flash Player 8 supports negative leading, meaning that the amount of space between lines is less than the text height. Negative leading can be useful when you want to put lines of text, such as headings, very close together. To prevent the overlap of text, you use negative leading for lines of text that do not contain descenders, such as text that is all uppercase.
Availability: ActionScript 1.0; Flash Player 6
The following example creates a text field and sets the leading to 10.
var my_fmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); my_fmt.leading = 10; this.createTextField("my_txt", 1, 100, 100, 100, 100); my_txt.multiline = true; my_txt.wordWrap = true; my_txt.border = true; my_txt.text = "This is my first text field object text"; my_txt.setTextFormat(my_fmt);
