Flash - Does Adobe TLF Support Chinese Fonts In RichEditableText Component

Apr 20, 2011

I've created a "Poster Maker" in Flex. The text part of the poster is written inside a TLF-based RichEditableText component. Users can choose the font for the text using a ComboBox which lists all the device fonts on the computer.

All works well, until Chinese users try to apply a Chinese font and it doesn't work. Here's a screencast of the problem (just over 1 min long). In it you can see I can write Chinese in WordPad and apply the two different Chinese fonts I have on the PC without any problems. When I switch to the Flex app and try the same it doesn't work.I'm at a loss as to why this won't work. The change event of the font picker ComboBox looks like this:

var txtLayFmt:TextLayoutFormat = editor.getFormatOfRange(null,


Where selectedItem.font is the fontname of the font and is what you see as the label in the ComboBox.

Flash :: Runtime Fonts Not Playing Nice With Fonts Embedded In Static Text?

Jul 11, 2010

I save my (embedded) fonts in an external file (fonts.swf) that gets loaded at runtime. Pretty standard. I also use a bunch of UI artwork generated in the Flash IDE. Some of this artwork contains static textfields (thus, not proper TextFields that can change. Just frozen glyphs). Here's the problem: if I use the same font in any static textfield and then embed that same font into my collection of runtime fonts, the runtime font will refuse to render. It's the same effect you get if you set a textfield with embeddedFonts=true to use a font that isn't embedded. If I change the static textfields to use a different font, the runtime fonts work just fine.

Professional :: How To Embed Fonts At Runtime (AS2 In CS3)

Nov 6, 2010

I have a shared fonts.swf file containing a variety of fonts that my main swf uses. I have a movieclip within the fonts.swf file which is exported for runtime sharing. In my main swf I have the fonts.swf imported for runtime via a movieclip. This all works fine and allows me to use the fonts within the fonts.swf file in my main swf. I am trying to work out how to import fonts.swf for runtime via as2 (instead of manually within the library), as in different circumstances different fonts are required and it is massively increasing the filesize having to import all fonts every time when only a few are needed.

Flash :: Pro CS 5.5 Runtime Sharing Bug - Fonts?

Sep 19, 2011

I have an issue with an apparent bug in Flash Pro CS5.5. I have recently upgraded to CS5.5 Master Collection from my previous version of 4.0. The bug is when I create a fonts FLA file with fonts embedded in it that I want to use throughout an entire site. I correctly configure those fonts as export for runtime sharing.

In any other FLAs in which I wish to use the shared fonts, I either (a) drag the assets from one library to the other, or (b) add them to the new fla and configure them as import for runtime sharing (both of which achieve the same result).

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Fonts At Runtime

Jul 30, 2009

Posting this is my last resort�I've spent the entire afternoon trying to figure this out. I'm to load a font at runtime using some updated code found here. The problem is no matter what I try I always get the following error:

TypeError: Error #2007: Parameter font must be non-null.
at flash.text::Font$/registerFont()
at cardmaker::FontLoader/fontLoaded()

which is saying that "FontLibrary._Bradley" is null in registerFont(); I know the swf exists on the server and the font symbol is being Exported for ActionScript with a class name and symbol name of both "_Bradley".

Flash :: Loading CFF Embedded Fonts In An External SWF At Runtime?

Nov 29, 2010

We have a large flash site which is translated into 11 languages. We have a font loading system whereby all the characters required to display the site in each language are embedded in external swfs (so 11 swfs).recent update to the site requires us to use the Text Layout Framework (TLF) for one area of text display, which of course only supports fonts embedded in the new CFF format. I've attempted to embed a second instance of the font using the tag embedAsCFF="true", and after loading in the font SWF I can see this font is correctly registered as it shows up in the array returned by Font.enumerateFonts.The TextFlow instance I am using has the following properties set:

textFlow.fontLookup = FontLookup.EMBEDDED_CFF;
textFlow.renderingMode = RenderingMode.CFF;
textFlow.fontFamily = "HeadingFontCFF";

Fonts - Cannot Get Flash Runtime Shared Library To Work

Oct 18, 2011

I am using Flash CS5 (assets) and FlashDevelop (code) for my project. We have about 20 fla/swf's that contain textfields. All of our textfields use the same Font, and the font is specific to our company so won't be installed on anyones computers, hence it needs to be embedded.

My ultimate goal is to have one single font embedded that all of the textfields use, for 2 main reasons:

Whenever we add more characters to the font (other languages), we only need to add them once and not 20 times The file size doesn't blow out dramatically

I'm having great difficulty in trying to achieve this. It seems that everything I try, characters are missing (only characters entered in the text property of the textfields in each fla seem to be embedded).

The latest solution I am trying is using Runtime Shared Libraries, as this seems like it should work. I have an fla called FNFont.fla. It contains just one object in the library, the embedded font. The font is exported to AS3, exported in frame 1 and exported for runtime sharing. The URL is FNFont.swf (all swf's are in the same folder).

In all the other fla's, I create the font object in font embedding. I tick Import for Runtime Sharing and give it the same class name as the one in FNFont.fla. The URL is FNFont.swf. The fla(s) contain many textfields using this font. The textfields have instances of themselves as children of other movieclips.

When I run the program and attempt to load a movieclip that contains an instance of one of these textfields, I get the error:

[Fault] exception, information=ReferenceError: Error #1065: Variable FontName is not defined.

FontName is the class name of the Font object in FNFont.fla and all other fla's. It is not the instance name of the textfield (nor the class name), so I don't understand how it thinks its a variable.

Flash - What's The Definition Name For Fonts Loaded At Runtime Created With Fontswf

Apr 11, 2011

I ran into the 'fontswf' utility to embed TTF fonts into SWF and I am struggling to load them at runtime from my app. All the examples I find online refer to loading the font via [Embed] but I am actually loading them with a flash.display.Loader and from what I gather, once the Loader.contentLoaderInfo fires an Event.INIT I need to register the font, like so:

public function handleLoaderComplete( event:Event ):void {
var FontClass:Class = fontName );
Font.registerFont( FontClass );

The problem is I don't know what to pass in as fontName. I am generating my SWF through:

$ fontswf -a belshaw -o belshaw.swf belshaw.ttf

But when I try to call getDefinition( 'belshaw' ), I get an error saying 'Variable belshaw is not defined'. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this?The alternative is to generate my on SWF files through templating an .as file and compiling them, but I would rather use a built in tool like fontswf if it's already there.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Runtime Sharing Fonts And Preloading With URL Query Parameters

Sep 5, 2010

I have a font embedded in a SWF file, font.swf, with 'Export for runtime sharing' ticked. I have another SWF which uses this font and has 'Import for runtime sharing' ticked and the URL property pointing to the font.swf file. When the second SWF file is loaded it automatically loads the font.swf. Now I want to preload the font file instead of letting flash automatically load it; I do this using a Loader to simply load the font file beforehand. The problem is that when I preload the font file I want to use version parameter to make sure that the latest version of the file is loaded eg:
Now even though I have loaded the font file flash loads it a second time because the the urls differ. I'm using CS5.

Actionscript 3 :: Embed Fonts At Runtime To Use For Existing Dynamic Textfield Instances In SWFs?

May 25, 2011

I'm trying to embed fonts at runtime in actionscript and it somewhat works. I can embed fonts by either using the embed tag or by loading a font library asset with a linkage name and use it with a new TextField. However, a textfield that exists on a movie clip already does not have the embedded font and is missing characters.

A quick example in code (textInstance exists on the movieclip):
var embeddedFonts = Font.enumerateFonts(); //Shows embedded font
var textFormat:TextFormat = textInstance.getTextFormat();
textInstance.text = "Don't be lazy"; //missing characters


I want to embed the font at runtime and I'm loading multiple SWFs and I don't want to embed the font in each SWF.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Load/embed Fonts Dynamically With XML?

Sep 22, 2011

I was wondering is it possible to load or embed dynamically new fonts?

In my current project the option would be needed. Situation is, I don't know what is the font and what would be the address of the font. So is there a way to bring new type faces in dynamically?

Here's my opinion which obviously isn't quite correct:

ActionScript Code:
var fontPath:String = "C:/WINDOWS/Fonts/BirchStd.otf";
var fontFace:String = "arial";
function setFontFace():void{


I get errors: 'fontPath' does not have a recognized extension, and a mimeType was not provided and Unable to transcode fontAddress.

Putting there for mimetype: mimeType="application/x-font-truetype" I get rid of the first one, but second error still exist

I need to create a tool which allows the users to apply a wide range of fonts to their text. The fonts may or may not be present on the user's system. I know how to embed fonts, but the problem is that I will have to import every font to my library and set their linkage properties. that will get very cumbersome. Instead, is there any way to dynamically load fonts from a folder on the server into the flash file? Or is there a better way to achieve what i need?
