How to use Subscript & Superscript in dynamic and input text field in Flash?

Issue: <sub> & <sup> tags are not supported by Flash. Here is example.swf:

Superscript Dynamic Flash Text

So if you have ever tried to add superscript text to a Dynamic or Input TextField in Flash you have probably had a bit of a tough time. The problem is the fields technically don’t support super script text characters. Hoever this is not really acceptable for many situations or clients. So a solution. Use embedded text for your TextFields (font characters are embedded into the FLA) and then create a custom font with superscript characters. The font contains the followng superscritped characters. TMSR™®©. Event though you input SM it will show up as SM since the actual font character is manually super-scripted. The font I made is based on Arial and the Zip file also includes a FLA with the characters already embedded. The downside to keep in mind to this process is that to use this special font you need to have the characters embedded, and the impact of that is any text field that uses this special font will have to have all characters the whole field tries to use embedded. So if you are using Arial you will have to embedded at least a subset of that font for the basic characters to be matched with the custom superscript characters. I suggest using HTML for the field to toggle between the 2. If anyone wants a more complete FLA example let me know and I will post one.

Hey that’s very cool. I’ve been searching for ages for a solution for this. Can you give me any advise on creating a complete superscript font. I create kiosk software for medical industry and they use loads of superscipt characters. Did you ever create the FLA?

I dont have a full font yet, though the characters I have available continually grows. I use a program called Font Creator 5.5 to manually create and add to my superscript set. It now has 0123456789TMSRT§Î†®™. Ill send you a FLA example also showing how with CSS you can just use 1 notation for superscripting

Hey thats pretty nice work, but why dont you post your example with the numerals too?
Will you be so kind posting the font with the numerals to share it?

Thanks in advance.

WOW! I’ve been going nuts trying to superscript text in flash. You’re great! I have a sunrise/sunset calculator I wrote and I need to superscript for the degree sign. Doesn’t look like the lower case o is there but the zero might work. Thanks!

Hi David, This is great news and a good technique - thank you! I am wondering however if you could provide your latest font build which I’m guessing includes numbers as well?
