I notice that if the number of texts exceed the text box size,it will become invisible.I will have to adjust the size of the text box in order to make it visible again.But the problem is my texts in text box change frequently such that it may exceed the text box size during gameplay.Instead of setting the text box size to annoyingly huge,is there any setting that allow text to show beyond the text box border?

A few things for you to look at.
You can set the wrapping on the textbox from word to character.
You can alter the size of the texbox "in code" using set size/width/height
you could limit the displayed text using left(text,count)
RamPackWobble is right. I'd also recommend trying the Text Plugin if you are not going to have the user input text. I've attached an example .capx where I adjust the rendering size of the Text Plugin at run time based on the TextWidth and TextHeight properties of the Text set within it.
(but if I don't say anything no one will know....)
