Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33287) TLF with Real Image Text Wrap Support
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2012 13:04:59 GMT


Harbs commented on FLEX-33287:

There's no really good way to do text wrap in TLF. For rectangular text wrap, you can do it
with a few container controllers. For complex shapes, you need many single line container

Here's a useful discussion on the topic:
> TLF with Real Image Text Wrap Support
> -------------------------------------
>                 Key: FLEX-33287
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: Adobe Flex SDK 4.6 (Release)
>            Reporter: Razvan Andrei Surdu
>              Labels: text, textflow,, tlf,

> TLF supports for the moment the <img> tag with attributes for float. This is not
real text wrapping, it is only the html version of "float a image to the left" or "float a
image to the right". 
> The correct solution should allow
> 1. The image to be placed on any position (Ex: x=100,y=200, x=10% width or with constraints
like middle,left, right)
> 2. If the image contains transparency ( like for .pngs ) then the text should wrap also
inside of the transparent space.
> In the attached image is the result that I would like to have with TLF.

> If the current TLF version does not provide this functionality If am willing to start
implementing it. 
> My request to  the community is:
> - if someone knows if this feature is already existing please comment on this issue
> - if someone can guide me to a person from the TLF team or other member who has experience
with TLF architecture i would be very grateful.
> I think this functionality would benefit a lot of products who take advantage of the
powerful flash text engine and if you agree with me please vote this issue.
