public class TextSnapshot
extends Object

TextSnapshot objects let you work with static text in a movie clip. You can use TextSnapshot objects, for example, to layout text with greater precision than that allowed by dynamic text, but still access the text as read-only.

You don’t use a constructor to create a TextSnapshot object; it is returned by the MovieClip.getTextSnapshot() method.

Availability: ActionScript 1.0; Flash Player 7 - The SWF file must be published for Flash Player 6 or later, and must be played in Flash Player 7 or later.
