I want to set the alpha value of the text in a TextField in order to be able to tween the text in and out of visibility. However, simply using
myTextField.alpha = 0.0 does not work: the text is still fully visible. After some searching I found out that this could be solved by setting the blendmode to LAYER, like so:
myTextField.blendMode = BlendMode.LAYER, but this has not worked for me either, the result is the same.
So, does anyone know how to do this?
