    Embedded font and Combobox

    Vikram_S Level 2

      Hello All,


      Scenario of my application: Application have combobox filled with fonts list. When user select font from combobox. Application load font swf from server and apply to text.


      I have embedded fonts in SWF using css.

      @font-face {   

          src: url("assets/fonts/arial.ttf");   
          fontFamily: "Arial";   
          fontWeight: "normal";   
          embedAsCFF: true;   


      here is code snippet to load font from server.


      var eventDesi:IEventDispatcher = styleManager.loadStyleDeclarations2(fontStyleName.@swfURL);
                      Alert.show("error while downloading font " + fontStyleName.@name);
                      fontStyleName.@isDownloaded == "true";
                     if(functionToCall != null)



      When I select font arial form combobox all list of fonts,tool tips are get disappear. My primary exploration is combobox has arial font and I am loading again arial and registering it. This may be the cause.


      Is there any way to set embeded font to any control?
