       SWF::Builder::Character::EditText - SWF dynamic editable	text object

	 my $text = $mc->new_dynamic_text( $font )
	   ->text('This	is a text.');

	 my $text_i = $text->place;

	 my $field = $mc->new_input_field;

       This module creates dynamic editable text objects, which	can be changed
       at playing time.

   Basic dynamic editable text object
       $etext =	$mc->new_edit_text( [$font, $text] )
	   returns a new basic dynamic editable	text object.  It has
	   interfaces to raw DefineEditText tag.  $font	is an
	   SWF::Builder::Font object.

       $etext->font( $font )
	   applies the font to the text.  $font	is an SWF::Builder::Font
	   object.  Unlike static text,	the font is applied to the whole text.
	   If the text will be changed in the playing time, you	should add
	   glyph data of all characters	which will be used to the font by
	   $font->add_glyph or turn off	the embed flag of the font.

       $etext->size( $size )
	   sets	a font size to $size in	pixel.	Unlike static text, the	font
	   size	of the whole text is changed.

       $etext->color( $color )
	   sets	color of the text.  The	color can take a six or	eight-figure
	   hexadecimal string, an array	reference of R,	G, B, and optional
	   alpha value,	an array reference of named parameters such as [Red =>
	   255], and SWF::Element::RGB/RGBA object.  Unlike static text, the
	   color is applied to the whole text.

       $etext->text( $string )
	   writes the $string.

       $etext->leading(	$leading )
	   sets	the vertical distance between the lines	in pixel.

       $etext->box_size( $width, $height )
	   sets	the bounding box of the	text and stops auto-sizing the box.
	   When	either $width or $height is undef, it is unchanged.  Fixing
	   bounding box	may cause unexpected text clipping.  You should	set
	   DefineEditText flag Multiline and/or	WordWrap. See SWF::Element.

	   draws the border.

       $etext->align( 'left' / 'right' / 'center' / 'justify' )
	   sets	the text alignment.

       $etext->methos for SWF::Element::Tag::DefineEditText
	   You can control details of the texts	to call	methods	for
	   DefineEditText tag.	See SWF::Element.

   Preset dynamic text object
       The following objects are inheritants of	the basic dynamic editable
       text.  These are	preset some proper flags of DefineEditText tag.

       $dtext =	$mc->new_dynamic_text( [$font, $text] )
	   returns a new dynamic text.	It is read-only, multiline text
	   enabled, and	auto-sized its bounding	box.

       $htmltext = $mc->new_html_text( [$html] )
	   returns a new HTML text.  It	is read-only, multiline	text enabled,
	   and auto-sized its bounding box.  The text is treated as a subset
	   of HTML. Supported tags are <a>, <b>, <br>, <font>, <i>, <img>,
	   <li>, <p>, <span>, <u>, and two special tags, <tab> and
	   <textformat>.  See Macromedia Flash File Format Specification and
	   ActionScript	Reference Guide	for further information.

       $htmltext->use_font( $font, ... )
	   tells $htmltext what	fonts are used in the HTML.  In	general,
	   upright, italic, bold, and bold italic font are in the different
	   TrueType font files.	You should prepare 2-4 fonts if	you use	<b>
	   and <i> tags, like this:

	    my $fp = $ENV{SYSTEMROOT}.'/fonts';	 # for Windows.
	    my $font = $m->new_font("$fp/arial.ttf");
	    $font->add_glyph('a', 'z');
	    my $fonti =	$m->new_font("$fp/ariali.ttf");
	    $fonti->add_glyph('a', 'z');
	    my $ht = $m->new_html_text;
	    $ht->text('<font face="arial">test <i>string</i></font>');
	    $ht->use_font($font, $fonti);

       $mc->new_text_area( $width, $height )
	   returns a new editable text area.  It takes area width and height
	   in pixel.

       $mc->new_input_field( [$length] )
	   returns a new one-line input	field.	$length	is a max length	of
	   input string.

       $mc->new_password_field(	[$length] )
	   returns a new one-line password field.  $length is a	max length of
	   input string.
