Embedding Fonts using SWFLoader

Recommended Posts

Hi, when using Flashbuilder, I usually embed the fonts using the [EMBED] method, eg:

 

[Embed(source="../someFont.ttf")]
private var myEmbeddedFont:Class;

 

I wondered is it possible to export a SWF with the fonts embeddeed in the Library, with Class names. Then call the font via the getClass method. For example, I have a font embedded in fonts.swf called 'ArialFont' :

 

var FONTS:SWFLoader = LoaderMax.getLoader("fonts");
var _Arial:Class = FONTS.getClass('ArialFont');

 

Is this possible ?

 

Many thanks

Yes, its possible to use getClass() to reference fonts in loaded swfs.

Give it a try. Let us know if you hit any trouble.
