TextFormat doesn't do anything

my code is correct, but anyhow, anyway my textformat does not work, examine follow code. Didnt see what i did wrong.

//SCROLLING SPEED var scrolling_speed:int = 2; //TEXT TO SCROLL var url:String = "tekst.txt"; var loadit:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); loadit.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, completeHandler); loadit.load(new URLRequest(url)); var my_text:TextField = new TextField(); addChild(my_text); function completeHandler(event:Event):void { my_text.text = event.target.data as String; } //set a format var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); //set the color to the hex //set the font size format.size = 24; format.align = "center"; //apply formatting my_text.setTextFormat(format); my_text.x = stage.stageWidth = 50, 0; //set y coord in middle of stage (about) my_text.y = stage.stageHeight; //not selectable my_text.selectable = false; //no border my_text.border = false; my_text.multiline = true; my_text.textColor = 0xFFFFFF; //field scales with more text my_text.autoSize = TextFieldAutoSize.LEFT; //add the listener to scroll; my_text.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME,move_text); //scroll function; function move_text(myevent:Event):void { my_text.y -= scrolling_speed; if (my_text.y<(0-my_text.height)) { my_text.y = stage.stageHeight; } }

For who dont know

The fontsize stays little or the same. and the align doesn't work. Any help would be wonderfull
