Bugged font after update

After update, some text in game shows weird font I never used

and I found If I revert this change in TextField.hx
everything works normal again

Could you share what code you use to embed fonts?

They should now work either using the font name (“Arial”) or by using the getFont method (Assets.getFont ("assets/arial.ttf").fontName)

I’m using HaxeFlixel
I found that If I set font first and then set text Size
this problem will be solved, that’s really weird

so this is FlxText’s code

private function set_size(Size:Float):Float
	_defaultFormat.size = Size;
	_textField.defaultTextFormat = _defaultFormat;
	dirty = true;
	return Size;

private function set_font(Font:String):String
	_textField.embedFonts = true;
	_defaultFormat.font = Assets.getFont(Font).fontName;
	_textField.defaultTextFormat = _defaultFormat;
	dirty = true;
	return Font;

private inline function updateFormat(Format:TextFormat):Void
	#if !flash
	_textField.setTextFormat(Format, 0, _textField.text.length);

Strange, I guess this is a Flixel bug?

I have the same bug in my app, and I don’t use flixel (or any other game engine). It looks strange - some textfields have incorrect font, while other - correct.

Reverting back “Fix v2 embedFonts behavior” helps.

(by the way, I use lime from haxelib)

Do you know an exact scenario I could use to replicate this?

I will try to create minimal demo project in a few days.

Finally able to reproduce this bug with minimal code - http://blog.zame-dev.org/pub/textfieldbug.zip


Fine on flash and html5 (both canvas and dom modes), but wrong font on native and neko.

To reproduce bug:

  1. set text
  2. call setTextFormat, change anything, but font
  3. call setTextFormat, with changed font

P. S. Created as issue in openfl repo - https://github.com/openfl/openfl/issues/492

Thanks for sorting this out! I will try and look soon to see if we can get a fix :smile:

One more thing: reverting https://github.com/openfl/openfl/commit/94193db04829ce9df201f5f0727316852fb68646 has no effect since latest openfl / lime updates (previously it “fixes” fonts)

Fixed :smile:
