    UTF support in SWF

    lordali
      Hi,

      I have a question. Do we have UTF support in Flash MX 2004 Or in Flex 2?

      Like I want to type language in Arabic and want to see in SWF. Will it support UTF code to display it.? Because dream weaver is displaying properly but when I used Flash MX 2004 its not.

      Any one help please

      Thanks

          unicode support in flash/flex? yes. RTL support in the flash player? nope.

            The String data type represents a sequence of 16-bit characters. Strings are stored internally as Unicode characters, using the UTF-16 format.

            By default, text encoding is in the UTF-8 format. You can change the encoding to other formats (ISO, ASCII, UTF-16, and so on) as needed.

            You can use the UTF-8 encoding format to ensure maximum platform compatibility. UTF-8 provides a unique number for every character in a file, and it is platform-, program-, and language-independent. If you specify an encoding format, it must match the file encoding you use.
