    Trying to figure out how to get font sizes in textfield to show up right

    JEC4568 Level 1

      This is a flash question it just gets a little complicated.

       

      Running into a cross platform problem.

       

      I have a microsoft .NET application that I created to draw graphics. I put the properties of the drawn object into a database.

      I then read the properties into flash and dynamically build the objects that were drawn in microsoft.net with actionscript.

       

      The problem I'm running into is I'm using the Microsoft gdi+ model to draw text in my development environment with a specific font size in points.

      When I translate that over into flash, my runtime environment the font size appears smaller.

       

      Note:

       

           I'm using a textfield object and setting the htmltext property to create the text.  Then I'm using the bitmapdata object to convert

      the textfield into a bitmap.  I do this for a couple of reasons.

       

      I can get the fonts to match closely If I multiply the font size of the textfield by 1.50.

       

      For example

       

      var fontsize:number = DatabaseFontsize * 1.50;

       

      this gets my fontsize close for the textfield.

       

      However with certain fonts this does not work.   Any help would be appreciated

       

      Am I posting this in the wrong place??
