RE: [Flashcoders] Movie seems to unload?

2005-11-18 Thread Mike Mountain
Hi Stathi Just out of interest are you using a preloader toload your content in? That may explain the initial load followed by the error - try the content without the preloader - if that works your problem is in there somewhere. Cheers M -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Subject: Re: [Flashcoders] embedFonts oddity Mike, I don't _think_ so - this is a dynamically created TextField object. I can't immediately find an AS property (rather than the UI's checkbox) to control kerning. Any pointers? Doesn't seem obvious under TextField or TextFormat... Cheers

Hall and Sam Wan. This book showed me so much I can't even begin to express my appreciation for it. It's AS1, but it still holds up, I tell ya. One of the classics. This truly shaped my understanding of OOP because it put it in a context I was already familiar with. Mike

Not sure flashcoders is the place to post asking for reviews - but as you asked.. I'd have preloader for all the apps - at the moment you can see them 'build' on screen - a place holder with a load bar would be a better way to hide the fact the images are still loading in, and reassure the user -
