The x and y parameters are relative to the container movie clip; these parameters correspond to the _x and _y properties of the text field.

The default properties of a text field are as follows:

type = "dynamic"
border = false
background = false
password = false
multiline = false
html = false
embedFonts = false
variable = null
maxChars = null

A text field created with createTextField receives the following default TextFormat object:

font = "Times New Roman"
size = 12
textColor = 0x000000
bold = false
italic = false
underline = false
url = ""
target = ""
align = "left"
leftMargin = 0
rightMargin = 0
indent = 0
leading = 0
bullet = false
tabStops = [] (empty array)

Example
The following example creates a text field with a width of 300, a height of 100, an x coordinate of 100, a y coordinate of 100, no border, red, and underlined text.

_root.createTextField("mytext",1,100,100,300,100);
mytext.multiline = true;
mytext.wordWrap = true;
mytext.border = false;

myformat = new TextFormat();
myformat.color = 0xff0000;
