    Label Rotation not working

    smashio

      In an AS Class i want to rotate a Label by 90 degrees.

      So I embeded fonts like this:

       

      var fmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat;
      fmt.font = "myArial";
      fmt.size = 11;

      trace(this.systemManager.isFontFaceEmbedded(fmt).toString());

       

      Thats true, so i suppose it works.

      I found a blog entry that suggests doing somehing like this:

       

      var fmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat;
      fmt.font = "
      myArial";
      fmt.size = 11;
      var lbl:Label = new TextField; < I get an Error cannot tarnsform Textfield to Label
      lbl.defaultTextFormat = fmt;
      lbl.embedFonts = true;

       

      but that when initiation the label i get an error - so i try it like this:

       

      var someLabel:Label = new Label();
      someLabel.text = "Some Label";
      someLabel.setStyle("color",0xFFFFFF);
      someLabel.setStyle("fontSize","14");
      someLabel.setStyle("fontFamily","myArial");

       

      after performing addChild i do

      someLabel.rotate = 90;

       

      label is not shown anymore!???

      any suggestions
