Have you made sure to embed the trebuchet font in the library in the size and style you are wanting to use?

Hello Sky,

You were on the right track. But your assingment of the textformat to the textfield was wrong. Try this piece of script.

greetz,

var format1:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
var format2:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
 
// function 1 to change font
 
function changeToFont1(){
	format1.font = "trebuchet";
	format1.color = 0x990000;
	format1.size = 15;
	format1.underline = true;
	txt_desc.setTextFormat(format1);
}
 
// function 2 to change font
 
function changeToFont2(){
	format2.font = "Arial";
	format2.color = 0xFF9900;
	format2.size = 25;
	format2.underline = false;
	txt_desc.setTextFormat(format2);
}
 
// call these functions on a button
 
changeToFont1();
//changeToFont2();
