SWFFont -- Loads a font definition


new swffont ( string filename)


本扩展模块是实验性的。该模块的行为,包括其函数的名称以及其它任何关于此模块的文档可能会在没有通知的情况下随 PHP 以后的发布而改变。我们提醒您在使用本扩展模块的同时自担风险。

If filename is the name of an FDB file (i.e., it ends in ".fdb"), load the font definition found in said file. Otherwise, create a browser-defined font reference.

FDB ("font definition block") is a very simple wrapper for the SWF DefineFont2 block which contains a full description of a font. One may create FDB files from SWT Generator template files with the included makefdb utility- look in the util directory off the main ming distribution directory.

Browser-defined fonts don't contain any information about the font other than its name. It is assumed that the font definition will be provided by the movie player. The fonts _serif, _sans, and _typewriter should always be available. For example:
= newSWFFont("_sans");
will give you the standard sans-serif font, probably the same as what you'd get with <font name="sans-serif"> in HTML.

swffont() returns a reference to the font definition, for use in the swftext->setfont() and the swftextfield->setfont() methods.

SWFFont has the following methods : swffont->getwidth().
