I have a little bit of a strange bug that I was hoping someone could make sense of. I’ve simplified it down to the following.
I have a swf (built with Animate CC), that has one MovieClip with a named textfield inside it. I embed the swf from my project.xml like this:
<library path="assets/assets.swf" type="swflite" generate="true" preload="true" />
The MovieClip has been set to “Export for ActionScript” and is given the class “ClipFromSWF”.
The TextField’s font is set to “Segoe UI” (But I will change the font though code anyway), and is called “tfield”.
I also have a font in my assets folder.
Then I have the following haxe code:
var body:String = 'This should really work for both text fields.'; var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat(Assets.getFont("fonts/KievitOT-Book.otf").fontName); // Create a text field from scratch and set the font. It works! var workingTf = new TextField(); addChild(workingTf); workingTf.defaultTextFormat = format; workingTf.embedFonts = true; workingTf.text = body; // Use the text field from the swf, and use the same text format. Not working! var fromSwfMc = new ClipFromSWF(); fromSwfMc.y = 50; addChild(fromSwfMc); fromSwfMc.tfield.defaultTextFormat = format; // Delete to see text fromSwfMc.tfield.embedFonts = true; fromSwfMc.tfield.text = body;
The example should show two text fields, but the second one (from the swf) does not display. If the line setting the defaultTextFormat is removed, then the text will display, but obviously it will not have the font from the new TextFormat.
Has anyone ran into this before? This is how I would have done it with AS3, so not sure what is going wrong.
BTW, I am targeting Flash for now.
