Changing the look of text with AS3

May 18, 2013 12:27 PM


I want to code the way my text look in flash.

So far I have danoe the following:


var textFormat = new TextFormat();

            textFormat.font = "Muli";

            textFormat.size = 32;

            textFormat.align = "center";

            textFormat.color =  0xFFDD00;


The above changes the fill color of the text, but I would like to have the text look more bold. The font that I eant "Muli" does not have a boild setting. In Illustrator I use a bigger outline for the text to get the bold look. Is there a textFormat.something = color and text.format.outline = 3 that will do that for me in Flash?

    you could increase the font's size and/or darken its color to make it look more like a bold font.
