Illegal override of createGeometry in flashx.textLayout.elements.FlowGroupElement

Apr 3, 2012 11:28 PM

I have migrated from using FlashDevelop 3.3.4 and Adobe Flash CS 5 to FlashDevelop 4.0.1 and Adobe Flash CS 5.5. I am now having a HUGE amount of trouble getting my project to work again due to TLFTextfields.


I understand that CS 5.5 uses TLF 2.0, so I have included the more recent tlfruntime.swc in the FlashDevelop project. Everything compiles fine but when I run the program I get this:


[Fault] exception, information=VerifyError: Error #1053: Illegal override of createGeometry in flashx.textLayout.elements.FlowGroupElement.


My guess is that the new tlfruntime.swc I have included in FlashDevelop is now out of sync with the corresponding swf RSL that gets loaded at run time. In the Flash CS 5.5 folder, I can only see one RSL - textLayout_2.0.0.232.swz. In the rsls folder in FlashDevelop, it has textLayout_2.0.0.232.swf AND textLayout_2.0.0.232.swz. Both the swz files in CS 5.5 and FlashDevelop are the same size. I copeid the one from CS 5.5 over to FlashDevelop anyway, but it made no difference.


I don't know what the difference is between swf and swz, but I'm guessing FlashDevelop is loading the swf, not the swz, and I can't find a textLayout swf file in CS 5.5.


Anyone able to help out?

    I guess what you mentioned about FlashDevelop should be FlashBuilder, right?


    For FlashBuilder, if you are using RSL model to link TLF. You should change the corresponding settings in the Flex-config.xml. Or You may solve the problem by setting libraries as "merge into code".


    For migrate from CS5 to CS5.5, you may check the help of In the chapter 9, you should find the detailed steps.
