RE: [Flashcoders] puzzle: how to verify piece-fitting?

2006-03-14 Thread Mike Mountain
I suspect you could use bitmap data to achieve something along these
lines - if each piece has a special pixel - you can use that pixel to
check against a master bitmap to see if it's in the right place,
combined with snapping it should make it quite easy. - if you know it's
in the right place and one of it's neighbours has also been placed then
you can make this a 'combined piece'.

Something along those lines anyhow.

 yeah, kind of. one thing makes it easy that is that all 
 pieces can only be placed in a pre-defined area (a shape 
 showing the outline of the puzzle), but i'm still looking for 
 some kind of algorythm that makes the already fitted pieces 
 drag/drop together... like having a,b,c mixed up, all single 
 drag/drop-able, but when c fits to a they both join and get 
 drag/drop- able as one piece. that's the problem i now 
 have. any solutions welcome.

RE: [Flashcoders] XPath problems with single character value nodes

2006-03-14 Thread Chaitu Vadlapatla
Thanks Adrian. I tested out both the examples, and the one that works best is 
var e = XPath.selectNodesAsNumber(this,/weather/dayf/[EMAIL 
PROTECTED]'3']/[EMAIL PROTECTED]'d']/icon/text());


For some reason the one that should work and Won't work is 
var e = XPath.selectNodes(this,/weather/dayf/[EMAIL PROTECTED]'3']/[EMAIL 
PROTECTED]'d']/icon/text());
e = String( e.firstChild.nodeValue );
I wonder why..

But I like the first example which works and thanks so much for looking into it.

 get the value correctly...
 
 var e = XPath.selectNodesAsString
 (this,/weather/dayf/[EMAIL PROTECTED]'4']/[EMAIL

 Interestingly, if you try this it won't work...
 
 var e = XPath.selectNodesAsNumber

 ...but this does...
 
 var e = XPath.selectNodesAsNumber
 (this,/weather/dayf/[EMAIL PROTECTED]'4']/[EMAIL

 This final example actually returns a Number (not a String as the first
 example does) which is what I guess you'd want to get from the icon
 element but seems to do it the wrong way (using text() )!
 
 I'm going to report this info to Xfactor Studio.
 
 Hope this is helpful.

Hi

I have done a test documentation from BLDoc and I have put it in the
helpPanel folder.
It shows great in flash, but now I want to remove the test from the help
panel.

I have removed the folder butit still show in the help panel in flash.
Does someone know if flash caches the folder or is it somewhere else I

[Flashcoders] change displayed columns in DataGrid

2006-03-14 Thread Thierry V.

Hello !!

Is there any way to change dynamically the visibles columns of a DataGrid ??

My DataGrid is populated with a DataSet.
And I call a function to redraw the columns of the DataGrid after 
setting the DataProvider, to correctly format my DataGrid.


But when I try to re-call the same function with different parameters, 
my DataGrid was empty... rows are displayed, but empty content...


I have tried to disconnect the DataSet, removeAllColumns, reconnect the 
DataSet and call the redraw function, same issue...


Thanks in advance for any suggestion

[Flashcoders] Marrying Function.apply() to WebService web method calls

2006-03-14 Thread David Stiller
I'd like to use Function.apply() on WebService instances' web
methods.  Should be pretty straightforward, right?  Turns out the answer is
no.  I figure the quickest way to illustrate my problem is to relate my
journey in a few blocks of code.

Here's a successful sample, using a freebie US ZIP code service.
Note:  Make sure to drag a WebServiceClasses compiled clip onto your Stage
from Windows  Common Libraries  Classes.


// FIRST TRY
import mx.services.*;
var wsdl:String = http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL;;
var ws:WebService = new WebService(wsdl);
var pc:PendingCall = ws.GetInfoByZIP(90210);
pc.onResult = function(evt) {
  trace(evt.NewDataSet);
};

... which traces the following XML ...

NewDataSet xmlns=TableCITYBeverly
Hills/CITYSTATECA/STATEZIP90210/ZIPAREA_CODE310/AREA_CODETIME
_ZONEP/TIME_ZONE/Table/NewDataSet

Easy.

Now, to transform it into a slightly more generic mechanism ...


// SECOND TRY
import mx.services.*;
var wsdl:String = http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL;;
var meth:String = GetInfoByZIP;
var param:String = 90210;
var ws:WebService = new WebService(wsdl);
var pc:PendingCall = ws[meth](param);
pc.onResult = function(evt) {
trace(evt.NewDataSet);
};

Still successful.  Now, Function.apply() takes an array of
arguments, which is the reason I want to use it.  To continue stepping in
that direction, I update the above param lines to ...

var param:Array = [90210];

... and ...

var pc:PendingCall = ws[meth](param[0]);

... and as expected, all goes well -- still.  At this point, I should be
able to slap in Function.apply(), like so ...

// THIRD TRY
import mx.services.*;
var wsdl:String = http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL;;
var meth:String = GetInfoByZIP;
var param:Array = [90210];
var ws:WebService = new WebService(wsdl);
var pc:PendingCall = ws[meth].apply(null, param);
pc.onResult = function(evt) {
trace(evt.NewDataSet);
};

... but it all falls apart.  If you turn on VERBOSE logging, everything
rolls along as usual until it hangs on the final line ...

3/13 12:7:30 [INFO] : Set active port in service stub: USZip : USZipSoap


Any thoughts?

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Joshua Buhler

Here's a couple of ideas:

If the image urls are fetched from an XML file, and the xml is  
generated dynamically, have the server write the filesize of the  
images into the xml. Or, if the images are added to the xml manually,  
add the filesize of each image to the XML.


Or, you could just display a number of total images loaded: Loading  
3 of 15 for example, instead of the total bytes loaded.

On Mar 12, 2006, at 2:06 AM, Sascha Balkau wrote:


Hi Adrian,

thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case  
because the images are loaded sequencially. If one image is  
finished loading, my class starts loading the next and so on, one  
after one. And the amount of images varies (the image filenames are  
fetched from a XML file).
I'm now defining a segmentWidth by dividing the full progressbar  
width by the amount of images that are going to be loaded. That  
gives me the 100% for one image on the whol bar. I just haven't  
figured out yet how to make it work so that the bar doesn't start  
from 0 at every image. Any other idea?

Say you have 3 images loading, use something like this:

var bytesLoaded:Number = 0;
var bytesTotal:Number = 0;

bytesLoaded += image1.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image1.getBytesTotal();
bytesLoaded += image2.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image2.getBytesTotal();
bytesLoaded += image3.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image3.getBytesTotal();

var percentageLoaded:Number = (bytesLoaded/bytesTotal) * 100;

There may be ways to optimise this code depending on your  
circumstances (e.g.
just calculate bytesTotal once and reuse it) but this shows the  
basic idea.

Re: [Flashcoders] ActionStep, help compiling examples.

I'm looking forward to it, as i'm having quite a hard time getting a

[Flashcoders] Random Objs and Placement

2006-03-14 Thread Flash Mel
Not sure how to title this email.  I am in search of a concept.  What I want
to do is take several objs - squares of varying sizes - then have them
placed on the stage forming a mosaic grid of some sort.  Maybe some spacing
in there.

Anyway, I'm thinking I need to take this approach:
//pseudo code below
createEmptyMovieClip(box_mc, getNextHighestDepth());
duplicate box_mc and randomly place them in locations off the stage
then have those clips come in and form the mosaic.

Now I think that idea works if all the box_mc clips were the same size.
For clips of different sizes, I'm thinking I need to add collision detection
just in case they stop on top of each other.  But how far over should it
move it they touch?  And which way should they move (if they are touching
the left,bottom, top, right side)?  Etc.  Lots of questions.

Writing it now, just also seeing if someone else has more input or even a
suggested site to look at for ideas or demos.

Thanks.

[Flashcoders] Encrypting data

2006-03-14 Thread Jiri Heitlager

Hello,

I am currently making a game that sends the highscore to a php file that 
 puts it into a database. If I would just send the var score to a php 
file, then it will be quit easy to manipulate the score. Using the 
firefox plugin Live HTTP Headers it is easy to see what is being send 
from the flash movie, knowing the URL you could then set the data using 
that URL.
Does somebody know a way to encrypt the score in flash and then decrypt 
it in php?


Thnks.

Delegate in Flash 7 and up is your friend. It fies the scope madness.
Also, test your validation bit outside of the onRelease and determine
where its failing.

function isEmail(str:String):Boolean{

[Flashcoders] Function Point Analysis - Estimating projects

2006-03-14 Thread Judah
Does anyone use Function Point Analysis (FPA) for their Flash projects?
Function Point Analysis is extremely useful in estimating projects, managing
change of scope, measuring productivity, and communicating functional
requirements.We've found the category names or definitions to be very
non-specific to us. So the final result would vary greatly from person to
person. We are researching this right now if anyone would like to share in
the research please contact me offlist (unless no one objects). 

 

What we are looking for is any FPA software tools and Flash definition
templates (what Flash services are defined under what categories)?

 

Definition:

FPA has been proven as a reliable method for measuring the size of computer
software. In addition to measuring output, Function Point Analysis is
extremely useful in estimating projects, managing change of scope, measuring
productivity, and communicating functional requirements. 

There have been many misconceptions regarding the appropriateness of
Function Point Analysis in evaluating emerging environments such as real
time embedded code and Object Oriented programming. Since function points
express the resulting work-product in terms of functionality as seen from
the user's perspective, the tools and technologies used to deliver it are
independent. More info at http://www.qpmg.com/fp-intro.htm

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread J-P Vieresjoki
Umm, my proposition might not be the most accurate or anything but it 
should work, on some level at least. Try;


(indexOfCurrentImage/numberOfTotalImages)*100+((currentImageLoadedBytes)/(currentImageTotalBytes*numberOfTotalImages)*100);

I'm assuming in that you know the index of currently loading image to 
calculate the percent. That's the idea, you might be able to optimize 
the line a bit, I'm too tired to do that myself. Hope this helps.

screens, leaving only the login screen visible.

mainmenu.setVisible(false);
mainmenu.incluir.setVisible(false);
mainmenu.cons.setVisible(false);

i set the mainmenu neasted sceens visibility to false hoping that when i show 
the mainMenu screen it dosen't show it's nested screens.
but this dosen't happen.

when i show the mainmenu using mainmenu.setVisible(true); it shows the nested 
screens too. i have to set AGAIN the nested screens to false to hide them, and 
the hide occurs AFTER the mainmenu fade in showing both screens during the 
fade and then after it hides the nested screens.

i want to know if tis is the correct behavior

code in the component login screen :

 login.setVisible(false);
 mainmenu.setVisible(true); 
mainmenu.inclusao.setVisible(false);
mainmenu.cons.setVisible(false);

Re: [Flashcoders] storing embedded font data in local shared objects(LSOs)?

2006-03-14 Thread Janis Radins
I'm  a fraid that is impossible

2006/3/12, Ken Fine [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 Hi all,



 Can anyone tell me if there's a manageable way to embed font data in an
 LSO
 (Flash local shared object) such that it can be stored on the user's
 machine
 and used by a movie?



 Or, perhaps someone can propose an alternate scheme so that embedded font
 data can be externalized and cached on the user's machine so that it
 doesn't
 need to be re-sent with every visit?



 I'm noticing that F8 embedded fonts are quite a bit more heavy than
 their
 F7 counterparts, and I'm trying to come up with ways to shave down the
 download. The other thing that would be very helpful to know is how to
 embed
 a subset of a font instance just once in the library, and have my movie
 draw
 from this common pool of font information. In reviewing my F8 size
 report,
 I notice that Flash is embedding the same characters of my Myriad Pro in
 the
 same font weight multiple times. This sucks up bandwidth unnecessarily.



 Thanks in advance for any pointers.

*I am using Flash8*

Is there a way to keep fonts in an external movie and load them
dynamically into a movie when needed?

The flash movie I am currently working on is a text editor that is all
generated dynamically.  A text box is generated on the main movie like
this:

this.createTextField(message_txt, 200, 10, 10, 560, 200);
message_txt.embedFonts = true;

The main text box is styled using TextFormat.

var messageformat:TextFormat;
meassageformat = new TextFormat();
messageformat.size = 20;
messageformat.font = hightower_font;

I have a button that calls in an external SWF that contains a list of
different fonts for the text box.  The fonts are embedded in the movie
and exported for action script and runtime sharing.   They change the
font like this:

this.aucion_mc.onRelease = function () {
messageformat = new TextFormat();
messageformat.font = aucion_font;
_root.message_txt.setTextFormat(messageformat);
}

The fonts show up in the external SWF as it is loaded into the main
movie but when one of the bottons is presssed, the text in the text
box disappears.

If I embed the fonts in the main movie, I have no problems.
Everything works fine.  But that defeats the purpose of having the
fonts exist externally.  I only want them to load if the user wants to
change fonts.

[Flashcoders] Function Point Analysis - Estimating projects

2006-03-14 Thread Judah
Does anyone use Function Point Analysis (FPA) for their Flash projects?
Function Point Analysis is extremely useful in estimating projects, managing
change of scope, measuring productivity, and communicating functional
requirements.We've found the category names or definitions to be very
non-specific to us. So the final result would vary greatly from person to
person. We are researching this right now if anyone would like to share in
the research please contact me offlist (unless no one objects). 

 

What we are looking for is any FPA software tools and Flash definition
templates (what Flash services are defined under what categories)?

 

Definition:

FPA has been proven as a reliable method for measuring the size of computer
software. In addition to measuring output, Function Point Analysis is
extremely useful in estimating projects, managing change of scope, measuring
productivity, and communicating functional requirements. 

There have been many misconceptions regarding the appropriateness of
Function Point Analysis in evaluating emerging environments such as real
time embedded code and Object Oriented programming. Since function points
express the resulting work-product in terms of functionality as seen from
the user's perspective, the tools and technologies used to deliver it are
independent. More info at http://www.qpmg.com/fp-intro.htm

 This is very serious. The majority of my work is kiosk apps.
 Any more details on this, official Macromedia stance on it? Future fixes?

Does anyone have more information on this? For instance what kind of
features or media types or actionscript are causing the leak?

We have a flash 8 application that has to be able to run for months
without rebooting, but was leaking memory at 31Mb/hour! I realized I
still had a textarea logger running but having removed that it is still
leaking at 5MB/hour.

We've tried running it as Flash 7, and also tried disabling all flv
movies, but it still seems to leak at the same rate. Does that sound
like something wrong we're doing in the actionscript (e.g. somehow
holding on to references so stopping the garbage collector freeing the
memory?) or like a player bug?

Is there a way to force the garbage collector to run? (our application
often has the CPU near 100% - I wondered if garbage collection only
happens when the CPU is quiet?)

Has anyone seen the memory leak go away when switching to zinc or a
similar projector?

Any advice would be very welcome,

Darren

 If there is no cure then this is pretty serious for anyone using

[Flashcoders] Component Initialization

2006-03-14 Thread John laPlante


I recently ran into a problem that I thought I'd share for others who 
might run into it.


I built a button component that included validation of a set of other 
components.  The user of the button would name a set of required 
components in a property values dialog.  When the button initialized, it 
adds listeners for the 'correct' events that the other components emit 
(tutoring application).  I found that the button component has to be 
above the required components (z-order) because the required components 
need to initialize before I can assign listeners to them.  This is 
probably obvious to some people but it bit me and cost me several hours 
of frustration.  This is easily handled by placing the button on a layer 
above the other components but I am not the end user of the component so 
it could still pop up when other use the button.


It seems that I can access the properties of components that come later 
in the initialization order but I can't access anything that depends on 
initialization nor any methods of the later components.  Can anyone 
confirm this?


I also wonder how people generally deal with this class of problem 
(initialization order) for components.  I've thought there must be a way 
to wait until all components have initialized but I'm not familiar with 
a way.  I suspect that I could use getBytesLoaded for the first frame of 
_root.

[Flashcoders] Strange Compile Error

2006-03-14 Thread John laPlante
I have a class that is on the borderline of the 32K limit that flash 
enforces. I've run into this problem on occasion and have generally been 
able to factor code into classes and use composition to reduce my file size.


Recently, I ran into a very strange error that in the end seems to be 
related but was very difficult to troubleshoot.  I received a number of 
syntax errors when I would compile but I would NOT get the 32K limit 
error.  I would get a strange output that inserted a small superscripted 
dash in between key words.  I'd paste a sample but it doesn't appear 
when I do.  You can see an image of this at: 
http://pslc-qa.andrew.cmu.edu/~pact/tutors/testing/CharacterBug.gif.  
This problem also seems to relate to the sheer volume of lines of text 
in the file.  My file has quite a bit of comments and I couldn't fix the 
compile error by commenting methods. I had to delete them from the file.


I generally use Flash 7 but tried to compile this on Flash 8 and found 
the same problems.

[Flashcoders] Use of Delegate

2006-03-14 Thread John laPlante
I recently ran into a problem that I solved with Delegate. I thought 
that others might run into this problem.


I built a button component that included validation of a set of other 
components.  The user of the button would name a set of required 
components in a property values dialog.  When the button initialized, it 
adds listeners for the 'correct' events that the other components emit 
(tutoring application).  I found things worked fairly well initially but 
after adding a second copy of my button to the stage and assigning a 
common required field, I found that the first button no longer responded 
to the 'correct' event.  To fix this problem, I incorporated Delegate 
when assigning the listener.  A line of the code is shown below where 
'ShowCorrect' is the event and componentsShowCorrect is a method in my 
button class.


componentName.addEventListener(showCorrect, Delegate.create(this, 
componentsShowCorrect));


In the past, I had ran across Delegate and found it a bit confusing.  I 
have generally relied on assigning a reference to the class (i.e. this) 
to a variable of the object that listens


componentName[realThis] = this

But this didn't work for my situation and I had to go with Delegate.  I 
found a nice demonstration of Delegate in the book 'Using ActionScript 
2.0 Components with Macromedia Flash 8'  It seems that Macromedia has 
made some nice strides in component documentation with Flash 8.

[Flashcoders] onLoadComplete VS onLoadInit

2006-03-14 Thread Éric Thibault

Salutations...


I'm using the onLoadInit event to execute custom fonctions when loading 
external SWF's.  While I was testing my code (IDE), everything was  OK 
and my fonctions firing.  But on testing the same code (SWF 7) with IE 
on my PC with FlashPlayer 8, the onLoadInit event only fires the first 
time a SWF is loaded meaning that if I asked  the same SWF again 
(present in my cach), the event was ignored! (I'm using a dynamic txt on 
_root level to test this).  In FireFox, everything is OK


I've finaly debuged the thing with the onLoadComplete event... IE always 
fires the event even the second time a SWF is loaded!  The Help sais 
that the onLoadInit gets fired when the actions on the first frame of 
the loaded clip have been executed. When this listener has been invoked, 
you can set properties, use methods, and otherwise interact with the 
loaded movie.. 

I there a way to force the onLoadInit with IE? Or do I need to test the 
navigator and then execute my custom fonctions after the first frame of 
the loaded clip has been executed???


Thank a million!

[Flashcoders] Trying Again:External Interface API and External .js Files

Hey Everyone,

I'm usually just in the background reading all the good information, but

Can you do this with external .js files?  If so, is there somewhere you 
can point me?


Any help one can provide would be much appreciated...

The company I work for is interested in moving one of our large applications

feasible to begin porting it over with the Beta release or are we wasting

I'd hate to put in a lot of time into this only to find out that my source
files are rendered obsolete when the new version is finally released.

I just got the AdvancED ActionScript Components book for our team, too.
It is one of the best explanations of the V2 Component architecture that
I've read to date.  I like the way that the examples are built up for
those who are new to components and object-oriented techniques, and then
gets into the details of how each type of built-in component can, and
should be used.

One of those books that I wish we had a few months ago...

Here is the tiny url for the same book, for those who had a broken

I would also recommend another new Friends of Ed book, Object-Oriented

of objec-oriented Flash development, and topics such as data binding and

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Latcho
this is just an undocumented class that shows how you can get the 
filesize of a file in a loaderqueue
without completely loading the file (I kill the further loading once 
sizxe is obtained).

I only use this class once to get the totalbytes.
After that I usuyally hard-code this result in the rest off my app.

Here I get the total combined filesizes from a loaderQueue object which 
holds

the url for every image or clip to load.
This is just to give you an idea. the way I present the code is nt 
copy-paste-able.

// first builds the loaderQueue object  // loaderQueue[index_ID].url


private function checkFileSizes(){
   //processLoaderQueue()
   var startTime=getTimer()
   var _CLASS=classHook;
   var FS:Array=new Array()
   var index_ID=0;
   for (index_ID; index_ID  loaderQueue.length; index_ID++){
  
   FS[index_ID]=new getFileSize()  //! check down

   FS[index_ID].ID=index_ID
   FS[index_ID].onSize=function(){
   if(this.size==-1){

RE: [Flashcoders] Still need help-Can't reference library font fromclass

2006-03-14 Thread Merrill, Jason
Jamie, thanks - so I tried calling setNewTextFormat(theFormat) before
(and also after) I set the text value the second time, and it still
doesn't show the text field.  If I just set the text and the text format
one time, it shows up fine.  

This is unbelievably frustrating, why would Flash behave so?  Seems very

Subject: Re: [Flashcoders] Still need help-Can't reference library

Although I have had my fair share of headaches with TextFormat, I
think I may know what is going on here.

There are two methods for assigning a textFormat to a textField. These
are setTextFormat() and setNewTextFormat().

The way I understand it setTextFormat() sets the style of the text
that is currently assigned to the textField BUT any new text assigned
by actionscript, by replaceSel() or by the user (in the case of input
text) is styled according to the setNewTextFormat() method and if none
is given, as in your class, the new text is given some default style,
which, as you've noticed, is not necessarily the same as the style you
defined by setTextFormat().

so I would try using setNewTextFormat() also and see if that works.

[Flashcoders] OT time investment in learning V2 Components

2006-03-14 Thread Manuel Saint-Victor
I came across and have been reading a copy of AdvancED components from
friends of Ed and thus far I am enjoying it but have a question that I would
like to toss out to The elders of the Flash community for feedback.
With the introduction of Flex 2 and AS3 am I making a worthwhile investment
of my time learning things such as V2 component coding.  I know that part of
the answer is all learning is good learning--and so on but I also remember
mention that the Flex components would essentially be replacing the V2 set.

Is the knowledge gained working with V2 going to help me with using the Flex
component set because of the many similarities in certain aspects of the API
or are differences such as the inheritance relationship such that I need to
not be putting that stuff in my brain and just bide my time with the AS3
Language reference until the Flex books start to hit the shelves.

As an additional piece of context to my motivation/goals for learning
Flash/Flex- I'm thinking as far as in the long run.  Not for jobs now but
say in a couple of years when AS3 has gone out in the world- and for
personal growth as an aspiring Flash/Flex  developer - not day to day making
a living.
As I aside note to my OT- I'm loving this trend that when you pick up the
Actionscript books nowadays they get right to the meat- Class file right out
the gates.

Thanks for listening/reading and I look forward to any insight and sharing
of feelings and crystal ball gazing that anyone can put out there.

RE: [Flashcoders] Marrying Function.apply() to WebService web methodcalls

Got it!  The solution is due entirely to Arjan van Ham, who recently
Googled a year-and-a-half old variant of my question on the flash-db.com
forum.  Thanks Arjan!

Now that I see it, the answer is slap-your-forehead obvious.  eval()
to the rescue.

// Replace this ...
var pc:PendingCall = ws[meth].apply(null, param);

// with this ...
var pc:PendingCall = eval(ws. + meth).apply(ws, param);


 At this point, I should be able to slap in Function.apply(),
 like so ...

 // THIRD TRY
 import mx.services.*;
 var wsdl:String = http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL;;
 var meth:String = GetInfoByZIP;
 var param:Array = [90210];
 var ws:WebService = new WebService(wsdl);
 var pc:PendingCall = ws[meth].apply(null, param);
 pc.onResult = function(evt) {
   trace(evt.NewDataSet);
 };

 ... but it all falls apart.  If you turn on VERBOSE logging,
 everything rolls along as usual until it hangs on the final
 line ...

  Hey Sascha,
 
  I see what you mean - the main problem is you have no way of knowing the
  sum total of all the bytes to load when the download process starts.
 
  I like the idea of dividing the bar into segments, one per image. I
  think I'd try something like this:
 
  Lets say there are 5 images to load - image_1, image_2 e.t.c
  100/5 = 20
  So, we need to map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for image_1 to the 0-20%
  segment on our loading bar, then we map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for
  image_2 to the 20-40% segment on our loading bar and so on, and so on...
 
  The code would look something like so (completely untested!)...
 
  var imageCount:Number = i; // total number of mc's to load
  var currentImageNo:Number = c; // the curent image number
  var currentImage:MovieClip = this[image_+currentImageNo]; // reference
  to the current MovieClip/Image
  var segmentSize:Number = 100/imageCount; // the size of each segment on
  the loader bar
 
  // map progress to a segmented progress bar
  var currentImageProgress:Number = ( 
  currentImage.getBytesLoaded()/currentImage.getBytesTotal()
  )/100;
  var alreadyLoaded:Number = currentImageNo * segmentSize;
  /*
  Work out current image's progress as proportion of one segment
  i.e. if segmentSize=20, currentImageProgress=50
  currentImageProgressMapped=20*(50/100)=10
  */
  var currentImageProgressMapped:Number = segmentSize *
  (currentImageProgress/100);
  var totalCurrentProgress:Number = alreadyLoaded +
  currentImageProgressMapped;
 
  // finally, something like
  myProgressBar._xscale = totalCurrentProgress;
 
  Of course, the code could be abbreviated a bit but I've broken the steps
  of the calculation out for clarity - I hope it makes sense! Let me know if
  this gets you closer to what you are looking for.

[Flashcoders] XML Node ID in Flash MX

2006-03-14 Thread Sean Tamblyn
I've been looking for a way to modify XML nodes in Flash MX via standard
dot syntax.  Tatsuo Kato's functions
(http://tatsuokato.com/flash/XMLNodeEasyAccess.as) do a wonderful job of
letting one read XML nodes with unique IDs via standard dot syntax, but
there doesn't seem to be any way to modify those nodes.  I.e:

trace(myXML.nodeA.nodeB.firstChild.nodeValue);

returns the expected value but

myXML.nodeA.nodeB.firstChild.nodeValue = newNodeValue

doesn't do anything at all.

Anyone have a nice way of modifying XML nodes by standard dot syntax in
Flash MX?

Cheers,

S.

I've created a new panel and put it in the windowSWF director, restarted

Everytime, I choose to open the new panel, the only thing that happens is

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Janis Radins
just read  file size  on server-side and pass it along image urls

2006/3/12, Sascha Balkau [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 Hi Adrian,

 thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case because the
 images are loaded sequencially. If one image is finished loading, my class
 starts loading the next and so on, one after one. And the amount of images
 varies (the image filenames are fetched from a XML file).
 I'm now defining a segmentWidth by dividing the full progressbar width by
 the amount of images that are going to be loaded. That gives me the 100%
 for
 one image on the whol bar. I just haven't figured out yet how to make it
 work so that the bar doesn't start from 0 at every image. Any other idea?

 Say you have 3 images loading, use something like this:

 var bytesLoaded:Number = 0;
 var bytesTotal:Number = 0;

 bytesLoaded += image1.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image1.getBytesTotal();
 bytesLoaded += image2.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image2.getBytesTotal();
 bytesLoaded += image3.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image3.getBytesTotal();

 var percentageLoaded:Number = (bytesLoaded/bytesTotal) * 100;

  Any more details on this, official Macromedia stance on it? Future

 Does anyone have more information on this? For instance what kind of
 features or media types or actionscript are causing the leak?

 We have a flash 8 application that has to be able to run for months
 without rebooting, but was leaking memory at 31Mb/hour! I realized I
 still had a textarea logger running but having removed that it is still
 leaking at 5MB/hour.

 We've tried running it as Flash 7, and also tried disabling all flv
 movies, but it still seems to leak at the same rate. Does that sound
 like something wrong we're doing in the actionscript (e.g. somehow
 holding on to references so stopping the garbage collector freeing the
 memory?) or like a player bug?

 Is there a way to force the garbage collector to run? (our application
 often has the CPU near 100% - I wondered if garbage collection only
 happens when the CPU is quiet?)

 Has anyone seen the memory leak go away when switching to zinc or a
 similar projector?

 Any advice would be very welcome,

 Darren

[Flashcoders] AS2.0 mingles well AS1.0?

2006-03-14 Thread Boon Chew
Me and my coworkers are in the process of migrating a large body of old AS 1.0 
code to AS 2.0 (finally!).   Since it's impossible to rewrite everything in one 
fell swoop, we expect that for some time the system will be in a state in which 
it's mixed with AS 1.0 and AS 2.0.

Questions we have:

What sort of issues or potential problems should we be watching out for? 

What is your experience with AS1.0 code mingling with AS2.0 code? Positive, 
Negative?

Do you seen any problems with AS1.0 mixing with AS2.0 code, if we avoid using 
any Flash 7 specific API? (since theoretically AS2.0 compiles down to 1.0)

Initially the code will be compiled for Flash 6.0.  Do you see any problem with 
trying to compile the same code later for Flash 7?

Re: [Flashcoders] OT time investment in learning V2 Components

2006-03-14 Thread JesterXL
Yes.  ActionScript is the same in Flash and Flex.  Flex MX 2004  8 use AS2, 
and Flex 1.5 uses AS.  Both use a similiar API for components, and 
everything in MXML can be done in ActionScript since MXML is compiled down 
to ActionScript before being compiled to SWF.

Both use EventDispatcher, and AS3 has this built into the language.  While 
the jury is out if Adobe will provide a way for the Free Flex SDK, which has 
the Flex 2 components included, into Flash 9 (Blaze) since it'll support 
AS3, I'm sure there is a way.  That said, there will be no effort on new 
coding components for Flash 9 since the Flex team is responsible for them, 
so yes, your efforts will pay off in both tools, just at different times.

Flash is always faster for testing code than even Flex 2, and is a valuable 
tool in your arsenal.  While the EventDispatcher is no longer written in 
ActionScript, it still helps to understand how mixins work in prototype 
languages.  While DataProvider is no longer a mixin in Flex 2 framework, and 
instead used via interfaces and a new class, ArrayCollection, it still helps 
to understand how Decatorator patterns work so you can apply those lessons 
in other prototype languages.

Subject: [Flashcoders] OT time investment in learning V2 Components


I came across and have been reading a copy of AdvancED components from
friends of Ed and thus far I am enjoying it but have a question that I would
like to toss out to The elders of the Flash community for feedback.
With the introduction of Flex 2 and AS3 am I making a worthwhile investment
of my time learning things such as V2 component coding.  I know that part of
the answer is all learning is good learning--and so on but I also remember
mention that the Flex components would essentially be replacing the V2 set.

Is the knowledge gained working with V2 going to help me with using the Flex
component set because of the many similarities in certain aspects of the API
or are differences such as the inheritance relationship such that I need to
not be putting that stuff in my brain and just bide my time with the AS3
Language reference until the Flex books start to hit the shelves.

As an additional piece of context to my motivation/goals for learning
Flash/Flex- I'm thinking as far as in the long run.  Not for jobs now but
say in a couple of years when AS3 has gone out in the world- and for
personal growth as an aspiring Flash/Flex  developer - not day to day making
a living.
As I aside note to my OT- I'm loving this trend that when you pick up the
Actionscript books nowadays they get right to the meat- Class file right out
the gates.

Thanks for listening/reading and I look forward to any insight and sharing
of feelings and crystal ball gazing that anyone can put out there.

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Adrian Park
Oops, spotted a mistake!

This line...
var currentImageProgress:Number = (
currentImage.getBytesLoaded()/currentImage.getBytesTotal()
)/100;
...should be...
var currentImageProgress:Number = (
currentImage.getBytesLoaded()/currentImage.getBytesTotal()
)*100;

(multiply by 100 at the end)

A.

On 3/12/06, Adrian Park [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 Hey Sascha,

 I see what you mean - the main problem is you have no way of knowing the
 sum total of all the bytes to load when the download process starts.

 I like the idea of dividing the bar into segments, one per image. I think
 I'd try something like this:

 Lets say there are 5 images to load - image_1, image_2 e.t.c
 100/5 = 20
 So, we need to map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for image_1 to the 0-20%
 segment on our loading bar, then we map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for
 image_2 to the 20-40% segment on our loading bar and so on, and so on...

 The code would look something like so (completely untested!)...

 var imageCount:Number = i; // total number of mc's to load
 var currentImageNo:Number = c; // the curent image number
 var currentImage:MovieClip = this[image_+currentImageNo]; // reference
 to the current MovieClip/Image
 var segmentSize:Number = 100/imageCount; // the size of each segment on
 the loader bar

 // map progress to a segmented progress bar
 var currentImageProgress:Number = ( 
 currentImage.getBytesLoaded()/currentImage.getBytesTotal()
 )/100;
 var alreadyLoaded:Number = currentImageNo * segmentSize;
 /*
 Work out current image's progress as proportion of one segment
 i.e. if segmentSize=20, currentImageProgress=50
 currentImageProgressMapped=20*(50/100)=10
 */
 var currentImageProgressMapped:Number = segmentSize *
 (currentImageProgress/100);
 var totalCurrentProgress:Number = alreadyLoaded +
 currentImageProgressMapped;

 // finally, something like
 myProgressBar._xscale = totalCurrentProgress;

 Of course, the code could be abbreviated a bit but I've broken the steps
 of the calculation out for clarity - I hope it makes sense! Let me know if
 this gets you closer to what you are looking for.

 Cheers, Adrian P

  Hi Adrian,
 
  thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case because
  the
  images are loaded sequencially. If one image is finished loading, my

  starts loading the next and so on, one after one. And the amount of
  images
  varies (the image filenames are fetched from a XML file).
  I'm now defining a segmentWidth by dividing the full progressbar width
  by
  the amount of images that are going to be loaded. That gives me the 100%
  for
  one image on the whol bar. I just haven't figured out yet how to make it
  work so that the bar doesn't start from 0 at every image. Any other

  Say you have 3 images loading, use something like this:
 
  var bytesLoaded:Number = 0;
  var bytesTotal:Number = 0;
 
  bytesLoaded += image1.getBytesLoaded();
  bytesTotal += image1.getBytesTotal();
  bytesLoaded += image2.getBytesLoaded();
  bytesTotal += image2.getBytesTotal();
  bytesLoaded += image3.getBytesLoaded();
  bytesTotal += image3.getBytesTotal ();
 
  var percentageLoaded:Number = (bytesLoaded/bytesTotal) * 100;
 
  There may be ways to optimise this code depending on your circumstances
  (e.g.
  just calculate bytesTotal once and reuse it) but this shows the basic
  idea.

RE: [Flashcoders] XML Node ID in Flash MX

There are some classes out there on the web you can use - I have one
that I can send offlist to you if you want where the nodes in the syntax
are the actual node names as they should be - not that firstChild crap.
OR, wait until Actionscript 3.0 comes out - it has native dot syntax for
XML built in (wooo hooo!).  You can try it out right now with the Flex 2

RE: [Flashcoders] Memory leak in Flash projector

2006-03-14 Thread André Goliath
I had similar issues and solved it by minimizing/restoring the App via a
third party wrapper (SWF Studio in my case) in an Interval. 
It seems that by doing that the Garbage Collector is forced to run, it´s the
same for Win.shide/show.

However I was not able to find the memory leak in my code yet, it is quite
complex with bunch of AS2 classes involved, but I *think* I deleted evere

 This is very serious. The majority of my work is kiosk apps.
 Any more details on this, official Macromedia stance on it? Future fixes?

Does anyone have more information on this? For instance what kind of
features or media types or actionscript are causing the leak?

We have a flash 8 application that has to be able to run for months
without rebooting, but was leaking memory at 31Mb/hour! I realized I
still had a textarea logger running but having removed that it is still
leaking at 5MB/hour.

We've tried running it as Flash 7, and also tried disabling all flv
movies, but it still seems to leak at the same rate. Does that sound
like something wrong we're doing in the actionscript (e.g. somehow
holding on to references so stopping the garbage collector freeing the
memory?) or like a player bug?

Is there a way to force the garbage collector to run? (our application
often has the CPU near 100% - I wondered if garbage collection only
happens when the CPU is quiet?)

Has anyone seen the memory leak go away when switching to zinc or a
similar projector?

Any advice would be very welcome,

Darren

 I'm using Flash Player version 8,0,22,0 on Windows XP professional.

 If there is no cure then this is pretty serious for anyone using

Re: [Flashcoders] seekBar and volumeBar Handle conflict

2006-03-14 Thread Amanda Kuek
Hello Jamay,

This doesn't directly answer your question, but I found that when I was in
the same situation as you (ie, making customised controllers for an FLV
player), the flvPlayback components weren't really the ideal answer for me.
They seemed quite difficult to customise as well as adding enormously to
file size.

I found that Lee Brimelow's series of tutorials[1] were really helpful to
make your own flv playback controls. It doesn't cover making a volume
slider, but you can make it pretty easily yourself after following the whole
series. Or if not, you can contact me off-list and I'll send you the code I
ended up using.

Hope that helps!

I've been using Flash so long and I have never had a chance to create a 
component and I was wondering if somebody can guide me on this...  I've

than the examples...  Maybe I just did not understand anything further than 
it was written in the tutorial or maybe my brain just cannot take it...


Okay...  I am using FMX 2004 and I'd like to create a component that calls 
an external PHP script with two arguments and get a data returned and 
display it in a text field on the stage...
I have created a quick PHP that returns the argument1 * argument2 like this 
which will return 'data=12' as an output and I want to display '12' in 
Flash...

move an existing app to flex2 and his concern is that it will change
radically from beta 1 to final product. the very fact that beta 2 is coming
out means that things are relatively stable and well along the path. i think
starting now will be a good idea. but thats just my opinion.

 Subject: [Flashcoders] Flex2 Project Conversion
 
 Hey all,
 
 
 
 The company I work for is interested in moving one of our large
 applications
 over to Flex when the new version comes out. Is it worthwhile or even
 feasible to begin porting it over with the Beta release or are we
 wasting
 our time considering that quite a bit of it could change beforehand.
 
 
 
 I'd hate to put in a lot of time into this only to find out that my
 source
 files are rendered obsolete when the new version is finally released.
 
 
 
 Thanks for your input,

Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Adrian Park
Hey Sascha,

I see what you mean - the main problem is you have no way of knowing the sum
total of all the bytes to load when the download process starts.

I like the idea of dividing the bar into segments, one per image. I think
I'd try something like this:

Lets say there are 5 images to load - image_1, image_2 e.t.c
100/5 = 20
So, we need to map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for image_1 to the 0-20%
segment on our loading bar, then we map 0-100% of the bytesLoaded for
image_2 to the 20-40% segment on our loading bar and so on, and so on...

The code would look something like so (completely untested!)...

var imageCount:Number = i; // total number of mc's to load
var currentImageNo:Number = c; // the curent image number
var currentImage:MovieClip = this[image_+currentImageNo]; // reference to
the current MovieClip/Image
var segmentSize:Number = 100/imageCount; // the size of each segment on the
loader bar

// map progress to a segmented progress bar
var currentImageProgress:Number = (
currentImage.getBytesLoaded()/currentImage.getBytesTotal()
)/100;
var alreadyLoaded:Number = currentImageNo * segmentSize;
/*
Work out current image's progress as proportion of one segment
i.e. if segmentSize=20, currentImageProgress=50
currentImageProgressMapped=20*(50/100)=10
*/
var currentImageProgressMapped:Number = segmentSize *
(currentImageProgress/100);
var totalCurrentProgress:Number = alreadyLoaded +
currentImageProgressMapped;

// finally, something like
myProgressBar._xscale = totalCurrentProgress;

Of course, the code could be abbreviated a bit but I've broken the steps of
the calculation out for clarity - I hope it makes sense! Let me know if this
gets you closer to what you are looking for.

Cheers, Adrian P

 Hi Adrian,

 thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case because the
 images are loaded sequencially. If one image is finished loading, my class
 starts loading the next and so on, one after one. And the amount of images
 varies (the image filenames are fetched from a XML file).
 I'm now defining a segmentWidth by dividing the full progressbar width by
 the amount of images that are going to be loaded. That gives me the 100%
 for
 one image on the whol bar. I just haven't figured out yet how to make it
 work so that the bar doesn't start from 0 at every image. Any other idea?

 Say you have 3 images loading, use something like this:

 var bytesLoaded:Number = 0;
 var bytesTotal:Number = 0;

 bytesLoaded += image1.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image1.getBytesTotal();
 bytesLoaded += image2.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image2.getBytesTotal();
 bytesLoaded += image3.getBytesLoaded();
 bytesTotal += image3.getBytesTotal();

 var percentageLoaded:Number = (bytesLoaded/bytesTotal) * 100;

 There may be ways to optimise this code depending on your circumstances
 (e.g.
 just calculate bytesTotal once and reuse it) but this shows the basic
 idea.

RE: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Ryan Potter
This is a bit of a mess and it is a little old (you could write it
better), but it works to do what you are asking.  It also requires that
you know the bytes of each file before you load.  The way I handled this
is to run the swf once and trace out the bytes and then put them into
the bytes array.  For the final version I just put the byte size in the
xml doc.  You could do this with php dynamically.

Good Luck.

 *I am using Flash8*

 Is there a way to keep fonts in an external movie and load them
 dynamically into a movie when needed?

 The flash movie I am currently working on is a text editor that is all
 generated dynamically.  A text box is generated on the main movie like
 this:

 this.createTextField(message_txt, 200, 10, 10, 560, 200);
 message_txt.embedFonts = true;

 The main text box is styled using TextFormat.

 var messageformat:TextFormat;
 meassageformat = new TextFormat();
 messageformat.size = 20;
 messageformat.font = hightower_font;

 I have a button that calls in an external SWF that contains a list of
 different fonts for the text box.  The fonts are embedded in the movie
 and exported for action script and runtime sharing.   They change the
 font like this:

 this.aucion_mc.onRelease = function () {
 messageformat = new TextFormat();
 messageformat.font = aucion_font;
 _root.message_txt.setTextFormat(messageformat);
 }

 The fonts show up in the external SWF as it is loaded into the main
 movie but when one of the bottons is presssed, the text in the text
 box disappears.

 If I embed the fonts in the main movie, I have no problems.
 Everything works fine.  But that defeats the purpose of having the
 fonts exist externally.  I only want them to load if the user wants to
 change fonts.

a.drawFocus(true);

its a v2 component takes a frame to init. i misread the question  the

understanding you need the halo effect.

as a side note, you know the code for this stuff is on your machine...

Re: [Flashcoders] AS2.0 mingles well AS1.0?

2006-03-14 Thread JesterXL
The point of AS2 is:
- packages
- strong typing

If you are not taking advantage of the first, that is ok.  AS1 prototype's 
are created in the _global scope, so the 2 can co-exist.

However, AS1 does not use strong typing; basically everything is uncast so 
tracking down bugs will be easier in AS2 than AS1.  Therefore, if something 
goes wrong at runtime, blame the AS1 first.

As far as co-existing, yes, AS2  AS1 compile down to the same bytecode.

Me and my coworkers are in the process of migrating a large body of old AS

in one fell swoop, we expect that for some time the system will be in a

Questions we have:

What sort of issues or potential problems should we be watching out for?

What is your experience with AS1.0 code mingling with AS2.0 code? Positive, 
Negative?

Do you seen any problems with AS1.0 mixing with AS2.0 code, if we avoid 
using any Flash 7 specific API? (since theoretically AS2.0 compiles down to 
1.0)

Initially the code will be compiled for Flash 6.0.  Do you see any problem

Re: [Flashcoders] using onLoad() in components

2006-03-14 Thread JesterXL
You cannot lose using onLoad.  Even if a component takes 1 frame to 
initialize because you are dragging it to the stage instead of creating 
dynamically, onLoad will always fire at the correct time.

However, you outta abstract this to an event.  As you know, mx.core.View 
physically calls initLayout, but you could dispatch an event via 
EventDispatcher, and have anyone who cares register for it.

function init()
{
addEventListener(onLoaded, this);
}

That way, others can listen too.  If you are only using 1 component, then 
screw it, just use onLoad as an internal method.

for some events of the subcomponents.  It works fine, but I'm just
wondering if this is the preferred way of doing it.

RE: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

2006-03-14 Thread Kevin Aebig
Instead of showing the progression of how many bytes loaded, you should just
show how many images are loaded.

So if you have 13 images loading, each time a image is loaded, increment the
progress bar 7.69 percent:

var nPercent:Number = (numberOfImagesLoaded / totalNumberOfImages)*100;

Cheers,

!k

Subject: Re: [Flashcoders] Loading several images with one progressbar?

Hi Adrian,

thanks for the idea but this approach will not work in my case because the 
images are loaded sequencially. If one image is finished loading, my class 
starts loading the next and so on, one after one. And the amount of images 
varies (the image filenames are fetched from a XML file).
I'm now defining a segmentWidth by dividing the full progressbar width by 
the amount of images that are going to be loaded. That gives me the 100% for

one image on the whol bar. I just haven't figured out yet how to make it 
work so that the bar doesn't start from 0 at every image. Any other idea?

Sascha

Say you have 3 images loading, use something like this:

var bytesLoaded:Number = 0;
var bytesTotal:Number = 0;

bytesLoaded += image1.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image1.getBytesTotal();
bytesLoaded += image2.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image2.getBytesTotal();
bytesLoaded += image3.getBytesLoaded();
bytesTotal += image3.getBytesTotal();

var percentageLoaded:Number = (bytesLoaded/bytesTotal) * 100;

There may be ways to optimise this code depending on your circumstances 
(e.g.
just calculate bytesTotal once and reuse it) but this shows the basic idea.

Re: [Flashcoders] advanced flash AS 2.0/3.0 book?

2006-03-14 Thread Manuel Saint-Victor
I'd like to second that recommendation.  I just picked that up yesterday and
have already learned a good bit from it.  I enjoy that books like this are
finally coming out.  Another good thing about this book so far is that The
examples are short and focused on what you are supposed to be learning so
before the attention span is shot you're throwing in two or three new lines
of code and having the reasons clarified.

Another book that I've been enjoying a  piece at a time is Object Oriented
Actionscript in Flash 8.  also from FOE.  I'm learning a lot from it.  The
only gripe I have is that I feel as if the case study- although excellent
and illustrative about the techniques- has been a turn off in my current
situation because I need to build a component set quick fast and in a hurry
at work.
It is really nice though that it's taking me through the planning and
implementation of building a component architecture from the ground up and
why.

I learned a ton about what could be done with components from The Flex book
because despite being geared toward Flex development it exposed some of the
API and uses of it that I had not come across.

I would recommend the Flash -Pro app development training from the source -I
learned a lot from that book but I think that with Flex on the horizon-that
might not be how things are done very soon.

I agree with you that most of the book recommendations out right now are
dated.  This is a very fast moving period in ActionScript and even with the
books fresh off the press I'm wondering if they're not already behind the
times and it is almost impossible to find books that go beyond the very
basic.

Re: [Flashcoders] Help with shared library fonts

2006-03-14 Thread Spencer Markowski
Shared libraries are a bit tricky. Don't use font symbols in the library.
Use MCs with a text box inside. Embed the font in the MC.

http://www.sharedfonts.com/eng/faq.html  -- This site was extremely
helpful. Download the demo... watch how it works.

You need to create a font_name_library movie with the font exported for RTS.
Then create a shared asset movie... drag the movieclip with the textfield in
it from the font_name_library to the new shared asset document. Publish

Then load the shared asset library only when loading into your main swf.

Not very helpful, but hit me back if you need help. I've created an
automatic font library extension for flash that makes it a breeze.

On 3/12/06, Hypno Joe [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 *I am using Flash8*

 Is there a way to keep fonts in an external movie and load them
 dynamically into a movie when needed?

 The flash movie I am currently working on is a text editor that is all
 generated dynamically.  A text box is generated on the main movie like
 this:

 this.createTextField(message_txt, 200, 10, 10, 560, 200);
 message_txt.embedFonts = true;

 The main text box is styled using TextFormat.

 var messageformat:TextFormat;
 meassageformat = new TextFormat();
 messageformat.size = 20;
 messageformat.font = hightower_font;

 I have a button that calls in an external SWF that contains a list of
 different fonts for the text box.  The fonts are embedded in the movie
 and exported for action script and runtime sharing.   They change the
 font like this:

 this.aucion_mc.onRelease = function () {
 messageformat = new TextFormat();
 messageformat.font = aucion_font;
 _root.message_txt.setTextFormat(messageformat);
 }

 The fonts show up in the external SWF as it is loaded into the main
 movie but when one of the bottons is presssed, the text in the text
 box disappears.

 If I embed the fonts in the main movie, I have no problems.
 Everything works fine.  But that defeats the purpose of having the
 fonts exist externally.  I only want them to load if the user wants to
 change fonts.

RE: [Flashcoders] Flex2 Project Conversion

2006-03-14 Thread David Mendels
Hi,

I am from Adobe, let me give some perspective.

A) It is always risky to build on a beta.  I feel quite confident in
where we are and hitting our schedule, but I have to be realistic that
there is always some risk.  You need to judge your tolerence for risk.  

B) There has been an API scrub between beta 1 and beta 2.  The results
are I think great--clarity and consistancy--but it will mean some
migration from Beta 1 to beta 2. Most beta 1 apps will require some
changes to run in beta 2.  That said, we don't expect to need to do this
again.  Beta 3 and final could require some changes in your code, but if
they do, it should be minor.  Again, we can't make guarantees and you
might have to make changes again before we ship.  

C) The advantages of Flex 2 are (IMO) enourmous and very valuable
(performance, productivity, maintainability).  We aren't going to be
reachitecting the Player, framework, language, again for a long long
time.  If you can go straight to Flex 2/Player 8.5 that will save you
the effort at some point of migrating, but it does carry risk until we
ship.

I know this isn't a absolute answer, but I hope it helps,

David

 i don't quite agree with your argument. also note what he

 concern is that it will change radically from beta 1 to final

 things are relatively stable and well along the path. i think 
 starting now will be a good idea. but thats just my opinion.
