swf_definetext — Display text in SWF file


void swf_definetext(object, text, centre);
int object: Object ID
string text: Text to display
int centre: Centre text




Displays the text contained in the text paramter in the SWF file. Text may first be modified using swf_fontsize() , swf_fontslant() and other functions.

If the centre paramter is set to 1, the point of origin that the text is drawn from will be the center of the string along the x axis as opposed to the bottom left corner of the string.

In the example below, two text strings are drawn deliberately overlapping each other. The white text is drawn from the left end of the text, while the black text is drawn from the center ot the text for comparison.


Existing since version 4.0


Example 1259. Draw text from the center

swf_openfile("test.swf", 100, 100, 30, 0.8, 0.8, 0.8);

swf_addcolor(1, 1, 1, 1);
swf_definefont(1, "Pix3");
swf_definetext(2, "Hello World", 0);
swf_placeobject(2, 1);

swf_addcolor(0, 0, 0, 1);
swf_definetext(3, "Another World", 1);
swf_placeobject(3, 1);
