I have a dynamic textfield being rendered as htmltext. If the field has a default value before I set the value in actionscript (as3), the output is all screwy. If the default value is "Lime" and I set the value to "Key Lime Pie", what I get is "eLimeie". It filters the new value by the default value’s character set.
Another Flash file set up about the same way will only print a few certain capital letters. All other uppercase characters that I pass in are completely ignored. Even if the default value is blank, when I set the value to "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ", all I get is "ACIMORT".
WTF, right? Any ideas? I don’t have Flash at home so I wouldn’t be able to test any possible solutions you have until Tuesday.
Embed the font you’re using for the textfields
Yeah, problem was some of the Flash people were embedding wrong. I guess there are multiple ways to do it? And some were doing it wrong.
