labelfield or richtextfield or something else?

Hi.  I need to read a standard news article size amount of text and display it on the bb.  Right now im just reading the xml file, parsing the article content to a string, and then passing that parameter to a labelfield.  Is this bad? Should i be doing it another way?  I mean, is there a text size limit to labelfield?

 

Thanks

Re: labelfield or richtextfield or something else?

Hi,

 

You can use different TextField available in BB, but depends upon your requirement if you want to show text with different font styles you can use RichTextField().If you want to show them in different color you can use ActiveRichTextField.

 

Do not no if labelField has any word limit.
