I added some FontIcons to a project. When loading the application with
Crome, these icons are messed up on the first load. After a refresh
everything looks fine.
IE and Firefox work fine.

Clip2: Chrome 1st load on an Android tablet
Clip3: Chrome after refresh

Regards Uli

I have created my application with Cordova and it looks fine on mobile
phones but on my 10" tablet the icons are only showing the first few
pixels from the left hand side as well.

Uli,

<< I added some FontIcons to a project. >>

Which icons, the icons that we provide ?  If so, are you distributing/embedding the OpenType (otf) version of the icon fonts, or the WOFF (woff) version ?

Yes.

Nothing - I just juse the latest version as it is

(<<By default, 2.04 includes/embeds the OpenType version of the icon
font with every project, and that is the 85KB version.>> )

I even wouldn't know how to change the embedded version.

Uli,

Please send me a test project that illustrates the issue along with your customized icon library, and I'll take a look.  

Also, you could try the WOFF icon font instead to see if that changes anything for you.  You can select it via the Project/Options/Compilation/Icon Font.   The WOFF font file is in the same directory as the OTF font file.  If this doesn't change anything, then there's something else going on besides a font incompatibility in the browser.

When I tried to create a test project on my laptop I could't replicate
the issue any more.
Back on my desktop computer I compiled the same test application and the
issue was back again.

It seems that at least one customized interface causes the problem,
since the problem goes away when I use the default interfaces (except
TIconlibrary off course).

It'll take me some time to find out what's going on there. So Chris'
problem seems to be different.

I did that - no change.

Tim,

ok, here are the interfaces which messed up the whole thing:

tscrollbarleftbutton.wbi
tscrollbarrightbutton.wbi

These are modified interfaces from an older version and they don't know
the new FontIcon element.
No idea what happened exactly, but replacing these interfaces with the
default ones solves the problem.

Just to be sure:

The order of search paths when building the library is:

1. Project path

2. Compiler search paths of the project ( Project | Options |
Compilation | Search Paths )

3. Library paths of the environment (Environment | Options | Component
Library | Search Paths)

Is that correct?

Thanks Uli

Hmm, that doesn't seem right.  If those aren't correct, then it should only affect the scroll bar icons.

No, the search paths for the library are only the library search paths in the Environment/Options/Component Library/Search Paths.

When building the *application*, the order is as you describe.

I was able to reduce it to a small sample project and send you the files
by mail.

OK, that's what I meant actually. Thanks.

That's what I figured, but just to be sure... Smile
