fontSizeValue is not working in SDK Beta 4

In SKD beta 3, it works ok, but after I update my SDK, all the font size came back to normal.

Anyone has the same issue like me?

Re: fontSizeValue is not working in SDK Beta 4

did you set fontSize to FontSize.PointValue along side of fontSizeValue?

Re: fontSizeValue is not working in SDK Beta 4

Hi Kyle,


It was the solution for me too, thanks Smiley Happy


What I don't understand is why behaviour was changed with two months to launch. I, and I'm sure everyone else developing apps, have better things to do than be making pointless changes to code.


It wouldn't be so bad if it was a sensible requirement, but it's not. The app developer has already indicated they want point size by calling the function to set the point size; requiring a second supplementary function call is just building in the chance of bugs in the code. The code that sets point size should be setting the font size enum, not the application programmer.

I am pretty sure that setting FontSize.PointValue was also required in Beta3

Re: fontSizeValue is not working in SDK Beta 4

It may have been required, but it worked perfectly well without it  Smiley Very Happy


But seriously, it this really was required then it was always an idiotic implementation:


Two function calls to needed set the point size of a text string?


The possibility of conflicting values between them?
