How do I disable multiline? I have a TextField using Bitmap font, and autoscale set to true, but I don't want it to ever to multiline, just squeeze whatever message within that single textfield. I cannot set the height of the TextField too small because the font face (or font size) used might change but the area allocated to that TextField remains the same.
Also, I noticed that autoscale is making the textfield going multiple passes by reducing fontsize by one each pass and will result in increasingly expensive each time the message grows (for each char added, the number of passes increases exponentially). Is there anyway I can simply render the textfield and just scale it down (it is bitmap anyway, unlike TTF font rendering, so reducing the font size 1 by 1 isn't going to make that much difference)? This isn't noticeable on desktop, but once ported to idevice the performance hit is visible.
