Text goes invisible on embeddedFont = true

Question:

I register my fonts once they are loaded. In my head I should be able to use them once they are. But I wasn't so I tweaked my code, here it is but it still makes the text invisible. As soon as I do embedFonts = false, it starts working again.

trace(Font.enumerateFonts()); // Returns an array and does show my Fonts embedded. var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); var fontClass:Class = _model.getFont("HappyHell"); // Does return the Class var myFont:Font = new fontClass(); // Works format.font = myFont.fontName; format.size = 15; format.letterSpacing = 0.8; var test:TextField = new TextField(); test.embedFonts = true; test.defaultTextFormat = format; test.text = "TESTING everything 13216"; test.x = 30; test.y = 30; addChild(test);

Answer1:

If you are using embededFonts = true property then you need to have the font in your library.

<strong>UPDATE</strong>

What does trace ( myFont.fontName ) output?

try:

var myFont:Font = new HappyHell();

or

var myFont:Font = new fontClass() as Font;
