    Font loading error from application domain


      Hi all,


      I am having trouble loading fonts from an external swf file. Any help would be very much appreciated.

      Here's the code:


      var AVAILABLE_FONTS:Array = ["Arial", "Impact"];


      var loader:Loader = new Loader();
      loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, fontLoadCompleteHandler);
      loader.load(new URLRequest("fonts.swf"));


      function fontLoadCompleteHandler(e:Event):void
                   for (var i:uint = 0; i < AVAILABLE_FONTS.length; i++)
                       debug("Embedding Font: " + AVAILABLE_FONTS[i], Grim.NAME);
                       var FontLib:Class = (e.target as LoaderInfo).applicationDomain.getDefinition(AVAILABLE_FONTS[i]) as Class;
                       var font:Font = new FontLib() as Font;
                   var fonts:Array = Font.enumerateFonts(false);
                   dispatchEvent(new Event(INITIALIZED));


      I get all the font classes correctly, but since they're in different application domain, I get this error:


      ArgumentError: Error #1508: The value specified for argument font is invalid.


      Any help?
