Referencing item's textfield in Accordion (Tree) Menu V3

(2007-07-17 - views: 16516)
Q: How can I set the anti-alias for the text of Accordion (Tree) Menu's items
A: In order to access the textfield of the Accordion (Tree) Menu v3 to set the anti-alias option or other option you may want to modify, you have to use the actionscript below:

var listener:Object = new Object();

// You need to listen for the onDrawComplete
// event because by the time this event
// is dispatched, all the elements of the menu
// are created and can be referenced.

listener.onDrawComplete = function(evtObj:Object):Void {

accordionTreeMenu.addEventListener("onDrawComplete", listener);

// This function goes recursively through all the menu items.
function parseMenu(node):Void {
    var len:Number = node.items.length;
    for(var i:Number = 0; i < len; i++) {
        // Here, with "myText", you can access the
        // text field within the menu item. Once
        // you have access to it, you can do whatever
        // you need. In this example, the anti-alias
        // setting of the text field is changed to "normal".

        node.items[i].header.myText.antiAliasType = "normal";
        // If the current menu item has any children
        // items, then parse each one of them.

        if (node.items[i].childs != undefined) {

Good luck.
