I have been working for quite some time trying to embed fonts
in my Dynamic Flash file. Basically I have a Flash Movie that uses
PHP/MySQL to load dynamic data. Most text fields throughout the
movie are dynamic. I have used setTextFormat() and
setNewTextFormat() when setting the font style.
I originally tried loading an external library containing the
fonts, however I gave up on that and just tried embedding the
standard way, by creating a dynamic text field on the stage and
using the 'Character' button selecting the glyphs I wish to use.
However, after publishing the movie, I removed the embedded font
from my computer and the font still did not display in any text
fields throughout the whole movie.
The movie selects the fonts dynamically through a drop-down
menu in the editor. Basically I pre-select several fonts, embed
them manually into the .SWF and store the font name I want in the
drop-down menu which changes the active font in the database. When
the font is on my computer it works beautifully, but I am yet to
get it to work after embedding it many different ways. I am using
Flash CS3, publishing in AS 2.0, and Flash Player 6. You can view
the live .SWF at
