I am trying to use an embedded swf to mask out a a container
in flex. It seems to work, but I have a couple of issues I wondered
if someone might have an answer for.
1. Text seems to be masked by the bounding box of the swf
rather than the actual shape. What is causing this? Is it something
in the class used when its embedded?
2. If I put x and y coordinates in the Image tag that
displays the embedded swf, text is no longer masked at all, but the
container is fine. How would I position this properly and still be
able to mask text?
Am I going about this all wrong? I am hoping to mix the
worlds of old school flash and the nice layout management, etc in
Flex 2. Thanks for any help provided!
I have another question about this stuff that I think I
should post separately, so if you helped here, please look at my
next post too.
