LableButton font color

Well, I tought

 

this.keypad_enter.label_txt.textColor = 0x00FF00;

 

Would change the color of the text of a LabelButton, but it does not.

 

Has anyone had any success with this?

Re: LableButton font color

hey john,

 

the recommended way to change the way your buttons look is to use the setTextFormatForState() method. here's an example:

 

 

var myBtn:LabelButton = new LabelButton();
myBtn.label = "Click Me";
myBtn.setSize(200,50);
myBtn.setPosition(10,10);

var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
format.font = "BBAlpha Sans";
format.size = 16;
format.color = 0xFF0000;
format.align = TextFormatAlign.CENTER;

myBtn.setTextFormatForState(format, SkinStates.UP);
myBtn.setTextFormatForState(format, SkinStates.DOWN);
myBtn.setTextFormatForState(format, SkinStates.SELECTED);

addChild(myBtn);

 

you can change the format for the different states. in the above code the looks is the same for every state. hope that helps. good luck!
