This is a really tricky problem - any help would be much
appreciated. Data is being read into our e-learning app from XML.
All text fields are being created dynamically according to
instructions also within the XML. Everything works peachily in all
European languages, however one of our clients now asking for
Cyrillic and Greek.
Our app currently uses this technique for embedding fonts -
and trust me, using font symbols and other 'standard' techniques
simply won't work!
Create a linked library symbol containing a text field with
an embedded font (using the characters button)
Use this in another movie and output the swf
Load this output swf into a dynamically created movie off
screen as the app initialises (font data read in from ini file)
Read the text field's textFormat and record in the global
The font attribute can now be applied to dynamically created
Only problem is, it won't work for characters outside the
Latin1 set, even if these are specifically added within the
original text field in the linked library.
We have numerous years of experience in ActionScript between
us, but this has pretty much got us stumped. Per usual, trying to
get help from MM/Adobe is pretty much pointless! Clients using this
application in earnest for web deployed training include Sony, GM,
Coca Cola and Dixons, so if anyone at MM is actually keeping an eye
on this forum, you might want to give us a tip or two here
