I have a movieclip with a dynamic textbox with italic font, I created the textbox and italic settings using the editor and not AS3.
In my code when I say
`textbox.text = subtitle;`
the textbox becomes blank.
I’m not getting any errors and tracing the text shows me exactly what I want it to. But in the swf, there is no text visible.
When I comment out the line; the text that is in the movieclip already – from using the editor and not AS3 – is visible and working.
Without changing the code, I tried the same textbox with regular, bold, and black font, and they all worked. Italic and Bold/Italic did not work.
It is embedded; as well as the same font in regular, bold, and black.
Can anyone help me out? :(
I don’t know if this will help, but i had a similar issue, if I set textbox equal to some variable it becomes blank, solved it like this:
textbox.text = "" + subtitle;
And I still don’t know why is "" mandatory.
That didn’t work, and just for the record, setting the text to a straight string and not a variable doesn’t work either.
I also tried using a different name for the textbox, the variable, and I changed the variable’s string. Still nothing.
I expect that when you design a TextField in Adobe Flash GUI editor, it fills data wrongly, or non-intuitively, it does not fill defaultTextFormat property, but instead applies text formatting to certain segments of initial text, which all get dropped when you assign different text value to a TextField.
