I have index.swf and contact.swf.
I’m using the MovieClipLoader to load contact.swf into index.swf. contact.swf is placed in a movie clip with specific dimensions.
In contact.swf I have:
var myFmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); myFmt.color = 0x444444; myFmt.font = "CorbelBold"; var metrics:Object = myFmt.getTextExtent("I love flash"); trace(metrics.textFieldWidth);
If I start contact.swf directly (not loaded into index.swf) it traces what I want.
If I start index.swf --> contact.swf is loaded into index.swf, then it traces something else. I found out that I have to EMBED the fonts in contact.swf AND index.swf to make it work.
Why do I have to embed the fonts in both .swf’s ?
