Open-Source Arabic Parsing v1.8

Update: a newer version available here

One bugs has been fixed.

An Arabic parsing script for proper Arabic readability on Flash Player 8 and 9 without the use of Adobe Text Layout Framework, runs on the client-side with no need to migrating older projects for Flash Player 10 ..

You can integrate my parser into your library as open-source under GNU GPL license.

ActionSctipt 2.0 version available here
ActionSctipt 3.0 version available here

Features Supported:

  1. Embedding Fonts (just put a dynamic textfield on-stage and select at least Basic Latin (95 glyphs) and Arabic (1088 glyphs) from the Character Embedding menu).
  2. Arabic Ligatures.
  3. Word Wrapping.
  4. Bi-Directional text.

Features Not Supported:

  1. Arabic Diacritics (not necessarily for reading Arabic language in general, arabs are using diacritics mostly for writing Quran, and in that case diacritics are not the only missing feature, there’re many other ligatures cases in Arabic used for Quran writing).

Fixed Bugs:

  1. Multiple-digit numerals.

Also you can use this online tool to copy proper Arabic into any Adobe software that does not support Arabic, like Flash, Fireworks, … , etc

For the font embedding and reducing file size, you can use shared fonts, and port those from a different server, follow this guide ..

  2. thanks for your reply
    I don’t know if I did something wrong
    I have already tried that, but it’s working well without using arabic parsing class
    if I used the class I have another undesired result
    it would be very helpful if you could provide me with a sample example that has a small photo on the upper left and the text is around the photo
