This session Huyen Tue Dao will cover the Text Layout Framework (TLF), Adobe’s library for advanced typography and layout in Flash and Flex. We will discuss the basic structure of the TLF and the underlying Flash Text Engine (FTE) as well as how to utilize TLF in Flex applications, apply advanced formatting and layout, add user interaction, and extend the TLF to add custom functionality. We will also look at several demos including a TLF text editor and integration of Flex components with TLF-rendered text.
