I'm working on a movie that will eventually plug into another
flash movie. Everything is going great except... and works fine
when I debug the movie from within flash... but when I load the
movie from the parent movie that will eventually load it... stuff
starts disappearing disappears. Buttons appear to work, but their
labels are missing. Dynamically loaded text doesn't show up (but I
can "select all", copy, and paste it into TextEdit... so it
seems to be working. When I go to a form with other Flash UI
components... checkbox labels don't show up and neither do Static
text boxes. Dropdowns can be selected... but when you click on
them... they don't open.
Anybody have a clue? Like I said... this only happens when
you load this movie from inside another movie.
My first guess is that you're loading it "under" a mask.
Device fonts only work under une condition: If you use a
rectangular mask attached at runtime (using setMask() ) never by
using mask layers at runtime (Flash player 6.40 or newer needed to
work at all).
There might be other reasons but i'm pretty sure it is the
problem I guessed.
