RE: [Flashcoders] proportional image/clip scaling

2006-03-21 Thread Jim Tann
This is a very old function and needs tidying up but I tink it should
help



public function
getScaleToFit(mcChild:MovieClip,intHeight:Number,intWidth:Number,
blnOver100:Boolean):Number{
var intScale:Number = 100;

if(intHeight == undefined){intHeight = _root._height;}
if(intWidth == undefined){intWidth = _root._width;}
if(blnOver100 == undefined){blnOver100 = false;}

while((mcChild._height/100)*intScale  (intHeight)){
intScale--;
}
while((mcChild._width/100)*intScale  (intWidth)){
intScale--;
}

if((intScale == 100)  blnOver100){
while((mcChild._height/100)*intScale 
(intHeight)){
intScale++;
}
while((mcChild._width/100)*intScale 
(intWidth)){
intScale++;
}
intScale--;
}

return intScale;
}

Subject: [Flashcoders] proportional image/clip scaling

anybody have the math handy to proportionally scale one clip to another?

Meaning, let's say I load in an image that is 100w - 300h.

and I want to display it in an area that is 320w - 240h.

So I want to scale the original image clip to fit within the display
area, but show the entire image.

Re: [Flashcoders] proportional image/clip scaling

2006-03-21 Thread Ramon Miguel M. Tayag
Here are two functions I just copied from a class of mine:
_nScale is the scale it will be, assuming that a perfect fit to the
container box is 100%.

nLPW - is the width of the container box
nLPH - is the height of the container box

the code also centers the mc to the box.

private function resize(mc:MovieClip):Void
{
mc._xscale = mc._yscale = 100;

var nRatio:Number = 0;

if (isWider(mc))
{
nRatio = _nLPW / mc._width;
}
else
{
nRatio = _nLPH / mc._height;
}

mc._xscale = mc._yscale = nRatio * _nScale;

mc._x = _nLPW / 2 - mc._width / 2;
mc._y = _nLPH / 2 - mc._height / 2;
}

private function isWider(mc:MovieClip):Boolean
{
var nProportionPhoto:Number = mc._width / mc._height;
var nProportionBox:Number = _nLPW / _nLPH;

return nProportionPhoto  nProportionBox;
}

Re: [Flashcoders] loading images into in cell renderer datagrid

2006-03-21 Thread Oleg Filipchuk
Hello,
May you provide your setValue function for your ImageCellRenderer?

Oleg

On 3/20/06, Rich Rodecker [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 i have a datagrid that uses a cell renderer for one of the columns.
 This cell renderer uses a Loader component to an load image into it.
 For most of the rows in the dg, that works fine, but some rows just
 refuse to load the image...and it's always the same images.

 I thought that the images might have been bad, but i tested them in a
 Loader in a new doc and they load fine, so I'm guessing i'm running
 into some wierd dg issue.

 I also thought it may have been the fact that some of my rows were not
 visible at the time the datagrid loads...and maybe the dg would render
 those rows until needed.  however I made all my rows fit into the
 visible area of the datagrid, and the same problem, some images just
 wont load.

 any ideas whats goin on?

Man, there must be some way to interrupt a running loadClip-progress!?
Finally I found the information needed where I didn't expect it: On 
Adobe's website!


The really working way for interrupting a running 
MovieClipLoader.load(theFile.swf, mcName)-progress is by invoking 
MovieClipLoader.unloadClip(mcName) AND not to test it locally within 
your file system, but remotely via some http-server.

RE: [Flashcoders] While and Var

You're reference to the new text field is off, try storing the reference
like this:

dtd = _root.createTextField(dtd, dt, 0, spa1, 100, 15);

So the working code is:

var dtd;
var spa;
var spa1;
var dt = 0;
while (dt=99) {
trace(dt);
dtd = var+dt;
spa = dt*5;
spa1 = (dt*15)+45;
dtd = _root.createTextField(dtd, dt, 0, spa1, 100, 15);
dtd.text=spa1;
dtd.border=true;
dtd.selectable=false;
dt++;
}

Re: [Flashcoders] While and Var

2006-03-21 Thread Arul Prasad
Dunno why I copy pasted 2 times!

The only changes were in the three lines where I replaced dtd with
_root[dtd]

You could use _root. dtd as well.

Of course you will have to optimize the code.


var dtd;
var spa;
var spa1;
var _txt:TextField;
var dt = 0;
while (dt=99) {
   dtd = var+dt;
   spa = dt*5;
   spa1 = (dt*15)+45;
   _root.createTextField(dtd, dt, 0, spa1, 100, 15);
   _txt = _root[dtd];
   _txt.text=spa1;
   _txt.border=true;
   _txt.selectable=false;
   dt++;
}

Reason why it didnt work in your case - when you said dtd.text you were
actually trying to access a text property of the string dtd. And it silently
failed ( coz dtd was not strictly typed)

You would've caught these kinda issues if you had used strict data typing :)

Re: [Flashcoders] sliding panels menu anyone?

2006-03-21 Thread eric dolecki
Actually the way that one is set up, there doesn't seem to be any timers, so
essentially you can build that using some XML and build the subMenu clips
ahead of time, and place them on rollovers. And use FlashVars to send the
same SWF a different variable on each page so it knows what to draw.

fscommand because of the fact that I need a entire .exe/.bat-file for 
every site, because you can't pass parameters with fscommand...


Any sugestions on that issue?
Thank you in advance.

Yes, put your remaining code into a separate function:

id=setInterval(function(){myRemainingCode},2000)

You can comfortably (well, messily) create a whole set of commands  
that run at intervals. The only problem is that you might want to  
avoid any other functions running in the intervening time.

you don't need a wait, the way you are doing its correct, except for the
order

mclip.onLoad()
{
   continue();
}

mclip.loadMovie();

if you end your code right after the loadmovie it will continue on the
onLoad.

[Flashcoders] Loading local Html File from offline Presentation

Hello Flashfriends,

I'd like to open a local html site from a projector-presentation on CD.
I need to point to an relative (because I dont know the CD-Driveletter

Re: [Flashcoders] wait or sleep

2006-03-21 Thread elibol
I believe the effect of a wait() function in Flash would cause an
application to freeze/hang. Actionscript is a single threaded language, I
don't even think a wait() type function could be implemented with sufficient
practicality. Wouldn't it just stop the entire thread from executing any
further, then resume it, leaving the state of the application identical to
the state it was in prior to calling the wait() function? Is Java not multi
threaded? Am I wrong?

[Flashcoders] PrintJob causes Abort Script message to appear

2006-03-21 Thread

I'm working on a complex Flash online application. Its all done in code and 
components, consisting of over 200 classes and probably around 50,000 lines of 
code. 

Unfortunately we have one unresolved issue. In a couple of places we have print 
functionality. When the print job system dialogue appears, the Flash player 
seems to treat it as a loop - after the usual 15 seconds, cascading Abort 
Script messages appear across the screen (A script in this movie is causing 
Macromedia Flash 8 to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may 
become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?). 
I have tried putting a simple print button on the stage, which calls the 
example code from Flash Help to test printing in isolation from the rest of the 
application, but the problem still occurs.

My question is... is there any undocumented way of temporarily disabling the 
Script running slowly alert? Or any other workaround? Our application is going 
to look seriously unprofessional if we can't find a way out. I've double-posted 
this plea on a Macromedia forum, hope noone takes offence.

Thanks.

[Flashcoders] Custom V2 Components - Compiled vs. StandardComponents.fla

2006-03-21 Thread Keith Takayesu
We've been building some custom V2 components in Flash 8, and have found
some issues regarding the Uncompiled components found in
StandardComponents.fla, vs. the compiled SWCs.

For example, the Label from the StandardComponents.fla file will not
accept styles for font after we instantiate it using
createClassObject(). Using the compiled Label instead, works fine.

Also, the TextArea from the StandardComponents.fla file will not always
output its text properly. Often after a compile it will have HTML
wrappers around its text instead of just the text. Again, using the
compiled SWC works.

Has anyone else encountered such problems? If so, are there other
solutions to using the uncompiled versions, rather than resorting to
using the SWCs?

Thanks,
Keith

[Flashcoders] Object.watch overhead?

2006-03-21 Thread Julien Vignali

Hi list,
I am playing around with the Object.watch() function in my custom UI 
components classes... I wanted to know if having 8-10 watches in a class 
would create some CPU overhead, or does it just work like an internal 
classic Delegate (which also requires an unwatch() upon object 
deletion)? Note that I don't watch get and set functions, just simple 
private members of the class...

Re: [Flashcoders] wait or sleep

yes, we did a recent benchmark for a client that requires some real power,

running the same set of arithmetic calculations this is what we discovered:

as2 finished executing the code in approximately 20 seconds

Java finished executing the code, in 3 renditions, 1422/ 1402/ 1438
milliseconds

as3 finished executing the code, in 3 renditions, 1402/ 1438/ 1402
milliseconds

These approximations would fluctuate between as3 and Java, but the bottom
line is that as3 is just as powerful as Java in processing power.

[Flashcoders] AS Files question

2006-03-21 Thread Patrick Jean
Greetings. I'm pretty new to the external AS files concept and I have a
quick question.

 

I made a first external class, let's call it Class A

 

I also created a second external class. Let's call it Class B

 

If I want to properly reference Class B from within the Class A  AS file ,
what is the best way to do it ?

 

Do I just have to import class B before class A within my FLA ? That sounds
not very efficient. So I assume there's a way to make classe B accessible by
class A from within the AS file.

 

Thanks a lot.

Re: [Flashcoders] Un-HQX, Burn in Mac, make ISO in PC, and make copies in PC

2006-03-21 Thread erixtekila

This question is pretty usefull.

I presume that the .hqx files that are Mac's flash projector use a 
ressource fork.

Once you copy this on another os, you loose it.
Without it the file won't launch again.

Zipping it is not a solution as it doesn't preserve ressource forks.
You could use .sit, but there are no AFAIK a windows analog.

The .iso is a good alternative.

BTW, is there a utility to give a broken .hqx is resource again ?
Thanks.

Re: [Flashcoders] AS Files question

2006-03-21 Thread elibol
There is, import class B within class A, having multiple imports of the same
class won't cause the compiler to compile the same class more than once.

import B;

class A {

function A(){
var bInstance = new B();
}

}

you can also do something like this:

import B;

class A {

private var _bInstance:B;

function A(bInstanceArg:B){
_bInstance = bInstance;
}

}

hope this helps,

Do I just have to import class B before class A within my FLA ? That sounds
not very efficient. So I assume there's a way to make classe B accessible by
class A from within the AS file.
  
I'm not quite sure whether I got your issue right, but I can tell you 
that - as long as the classes and FLAs reside in the _same_ directory, 
they automatically know each other.


But since you might place your AS files in a separate directory - or 
even in a separate directory structure (when using packages) - you 
have to tell Flash (and SEPY, MTASC etc.) the path where your directory 
structure begins...

Roman.

Re: [Flashcoders] Object.watch overhead?

2006-03-21 Thread elibol
I see, just for some info, the compiler won't allow the watching of getter
and setter functions. It should yield less overhead than any alternative,
such as observer/listener patterns with ASBroadcast, otherwise I don't see
the purpose in having it at all. I'm not sure about the garbage collection,
but based on the functions they provide for you, I would assume that the
Object class has an internal watch list that would be removed with the
removal of the object, so if you're deleting the object then I don't think
you should call unwatch before doing so, otherwise, I think there is as much
a reason for the unwatch function for managing the object as is to
controlling its watch refrences, as this is the only thing that should
pertain to overhead.

I mean, if you remove a property in a dynamic object class, then you should
probably remove it with a wrapper function, passing the property name as an
argument, the idea is to unwatch it if it's being watched before deleting
it. I would guess that this is most optimal, unless however an object does
this before removing a property of itself anyways. I don't know the answer
to this question.

I hope this helps,

M.

 Hi list,
 I am playing around with the Object.watch() function in my custom UI
 components classes... I wanted to know if having 8-10 watches in a class
 would create some CPU overhead, or does it just work like an internal
 classic Delegate (which also requires an unwatch() upon object
 deletion)? Note that I don't watch get and set functions, just simple
 private members of the class...

 Thanks for the reply,

Yeah, you should - besides your issue - NEVER rely on values passed 
during variable declaration! These values sometimes are not stored 
inside the variables...


To make your code work (I hope) you'd better write your class as follows:

-
import SequencerOBJ;

public function ComOBJ() {
myTest = new SequencerOBJ(It works);

This should do the job.

[Flashcoders] AS Files question [FIXED]

2006-03-21 Thread Patrick Jean
Yes it works !! Thanks a lot.

What is the problem with creating object variables outside the constructor ?

As far as I remember from my C++ time , java  c++ were allowing you to do
that so I thought AS2 would.

Thanks again, and thanks to the other people that gave me extra information.
That is well appreciated.

Re: [Flashcoders] Un-HQX, Burn in Mac, make ISO in PC, and make copies in PC

hqx are not macintosh projectors per se, they are the encoded

be copied around, you would then decode the hqx on a Mac or using  
something like CDEverywhere on a PC, which decodes the hqx on the fly  
as it creates a disc image to burn in Nero et al.


It's a bit old now, but I wrote the FAQ and tutorial on FlashKit in

I presume that the .hqx files that are Mac's flash projector use a

Once you copy this on another os, you loose it.
Without it the file won't launch again.

Zipping it is not a solution as it doesn't preserve ressource forks.
You could use .sit, but there are no AFAIK a windows analog.

The .iso is a good alternative.

BTW, is there a utility to give a broken .hqx is resource again ?

[Flashcoders] international keyboards

2006-03-21 Thread Jon Rowe
Hi All,

 

I'm trying to localize a site for Swedish peeps and I'm having trouble
displaying those Nordic characters in an input text field for an email
form. My file uses shared fonts, principally Univers, the correct font
outlines for these characters are contained in the embedded fonts - I
know this because if I change my (English UK) keyboard to English US -
International I can type the characters I need using Alt-Gr + a key
shortcuts. 

 

What I need to know is how to enable users of Swedish keyboards to input
the correct characters without changing their keyboard setup.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

2006-03-21 Thread Paul Steven
Thanks Sam

Looks like you are opening the file

tell application Finder
open file targetFile
end tell

Is there an equivalent to just copy / save the file to the users hard drive?

Thanks

Re: [Flashcoders] How would I use an insert target path dialog in my own components?

2006-03-21 Thread elibol
those are inspectable properties, you use meta tags to identify them:

[Inspectable]
 private var item_library_ID:String;

or something like:

[Inspectable(enumeration='vertical,horizontal', defaultValue='vertical')]
private var proportion:String;

Search Flash help for Inspectable to get a better idea of what you can do.

Re: [Flashcoders] Un-HQX, Burn in Mac, make ISO in PC, and make copies in PC

2006-03-21 Thread erixtekila
hqx are not macintosh projectors per se, they are the encoded versions  
of Macintosh (including the rsrc fork) projectors that _can_ be copied  
around

Hm… you're right.
.hqx is binhex encoded file (something like uuencode)

BTW I've made a confusion.
I meant : Is it possible to give a resource fork back to a projector  
that loose it ?


For ex, someone put a mac projector in a zip file.
How is it possible to make it launchable again as an application ?

Here is an example of the issue.
Grab the huge archive there (very interesting stuff from Etienne  
Mineur):
http://www.my-os.net/blog/index.php?2005/08/29/107-issey-miyake-

Could some mac user open the projector file ?
Not /me.

Any idea ?

set AppleScript's text item delimiters to :
set the parentFolder to ¬

set AppleScript's text item delimiters to

try
set targetFile to alias (the parentFolder  fileName)

Re: [Flashcoders] How would I use an insert target path dialog in my own components?

2006-03-21 Thread Manuel Saint-Victor
elibol,

Thanks for the quick response.  I understand that part.  Where I'm stuck is
trying to create a window like the one in the actionspanel where a person
can select an instance name from the hierarchy of instances on the stage.
Would you happen to know how to get that to appear.  I'm starting to think
it might be only available if I create a dialog.

Re: [Flashcoders] LOADVARS not working IE

2006-03-21 Thread Robert Leisle
I had this same issue last month. Here's the advice I got (Thanks to 
Mark Llobrera) on this board. It was right on target for me. Hope it 
helps you too.


You may want to check this posting: http://www.blog.lessrain.com/?p=276. As I 
understand it, if the server is returning no-cache headers for the data you're 
trying to load it may fail in IE. I say may because I've only run into this 
problem when loading XML data over SSL in IE, not a plain .txt file. Something 
tells me your problem may be related, however.

Good luck

 Yes, put your remaining code into a separate function:

 id=setInterval(function(){myRemainingCode},2000)

 You can comfortably (well, messily) create a whole set of commands 
 that run at intervals. The only problem is that you might want to 
 avoid any other functions running in the intervening time.

[Flashcoders] referencing my main movieclip in a movie clip that is above(i think)

2006-03-21 Thread Jose Maria Barros
Hi...i know that is a newbie question, but..here it goes:

I have a swf A. When i press a button in it, i load an external swf B into
swf A.

When i click a button in swf A , i wanted to swf B reach a variable that is
in an movieclip that is in swf A.


I tried this in the end of the main timeline of swf B:

_level0.movieclip_in_A.myvar;

So, _level0 is supposed to be the main swf A and movieclip_in_A is the movie
clip inside the main swf, that have nested a variable called myvar.

Im wrong?

Oh and the swf B is loaded in a empty movieclip.


Thanks in advance.


 this doesnt work..

Anyway this is bad style: If _root/_level0 changes, then your code will 
cease working as expected. You can evade this situation by simply 
referencing the other way round:


In the timeline of clipB write:

   this._parent.myvar

RE: [Flashcoders] Browse folders from flash

...and in mx04, you would need to use javascript or some other slightly
kludgey solution, like the yamzbrowser one. Basically use a hidden form
field and javascript to trigger a 'press' of the 'browse' button on the
hidden form in a 0% height frame or some such thing. I have used it in
the past with mixed degrees of success. Search the archives for flash
file upload - this has been discussed a lot in the past.

Re: [Flashcoders] referencing my main movieclip in a movie clip that is above(i think)

Hello Roman.

I tried this in my swf B:

  I tried this in the end of the main timeline of swf B:

  So, _level0 is supposed to be the main swf A and movieclip_in_A is the
 movie
  clip inside the main swf, that have nested a variable called myvar.
 
  Im wrong?
 Anyway this is bad style: If _root/_level0 changes, then your code will
 cease working as expected. You can evade this situation by simply
 referencing the other way round:

 In the timeline of clipB write:

 this._parent.myvar

Re: [Flashcoders] Custom V2 Components - Compiled vs. StandardComponents.fla

2006-03-21 Thread Rich Rodecker
i just asked recently on this list about using the uncompiled
component clips from the StandardComponents.fla instead of the
compiled clips in my custom component (like it says to do in the
documentation).

the answer i got was to just use the precompiled clips anyway.  I've
been using them and havent run into any issues yet.





On 3/21/06, Keith Takayesu [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:
 We've been building some custom V2 components in Flash 8, and have found
 some issues regarding the Uncompiled components found in
 StandardComponents.fla, vs. the compiled SWCs.

 For example, the Label from the StandardComponents.fla file will not
 accept styles for font after we instantiate it using
 createClassObject(). Using the compiled Label instead, works fine.

 Also, the TextArea from the StandardComponents.fla file will not always
 output its text properly. Often after a compile it will have HTML
 wrappers around its text instead of just the text. Again, using the
 compiled SWC works.

 Has anyone else encountered such problems? If so, are there other
 solutions to using the uncompiled versions, rather than resorting to
 using the SWCs?

 Thanks,
 Keith

Re: [Flashcoders] Browse folders from flash

2006-03-21 Thread Rich Rodecker
as far as I know you cant just select a folder...flash needs to create
a FileReference object for each file in a directory, and it will only
do that for each individual item that the user selected.  Why they
couldnt just create one for every file in a directory I don't know,
but I would imagine it was a security concern.

[Flashcoders] Problem

2006-03-21 Thread Christopher Whiteford
I am having a problem with figuring out why I am having scoping issues with
a rollover button. I am trying to load a swf file outside_btn.swf in that
has a movie with an instance name of smBtn on the main timeline. now I have
done traces from the button that indeed returns _level.smFindBtn1_mc.smBtn
but yet I still cant get teh onRelease to execute.

var smFindBtn1_mc:MovieClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip(smFindBtn1_mc,
this.getNextHighestDepth());
var smFindBtn1:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
smFindBtn1.loadClip(outside_btn.swf, smFindBtn1_mc);
smFindBtn1_mc.smBtn.onRelease = function(){
getURL(www.yahoo.com)

I'm sorry Mani, I think I know what you're talking about however I don't

in which case you should try searching the flashcoders list archives for

RE: [Flashcoders] 27th March Sydney Developers study group

2006-03-21 Thread Kevin Mulvihill
Oh, I hate to write an email like this, but I just keep wishing that all the
emails from this user group would just go away... And they don't. There's
another one today. Bash on me if you want, but I just don't think this is
appropriate fodder for an internationally-based coding list. How many of the
thousands of coders on this list are in Sydney anyway? 3? 5? 10? For the
rest of us, these notices are just trash bin material and a complete waste
of bandwidth. I know it's only a small number of postings coming through
here each month, but what if EVERY user group started posting their meeting
notices here? How many user groups are there worldwide? Hundreds? THOUSANDS?
We would quickly be overrun. And it's simply not fair to let one post and
not another. Even Figleaf, who runs this list AND a number of user groups,
doesn't post their meeting notices here.

I don't mind a new group starting up sending one or two announcement posts
to the list - there are a lot of coders here and hopefully a new group can
get an initial influx of members in this way. But the Sydney group is nearly
a year old, so it seems to me that THIS LIST ought to be able to get back to
coding issues, of which there are plenty, sometime soon.

Again, I don't mean to offend anybody, and I really don't like writing
emails like this. I just think this kind of content belongs elsewhere. And
if it is somehow appropriate, just let me know and I'll shut up... Thanks
for listening.

Kevin

You're defining the onRelease function before outside_btn.swf is loaded.

Wrap your onRelease definition in an onLoadComplete function to solve your

You could use PHP (or whatever serverside lang you've got) to do a
directory listing and use is_dir to build youreslf a list of
directories. Pass that into flash using
remoting/loadvars/xml/whathaveyou and display a list of dirs in flash

Clicking on one would allow you to grab that path var. Something like
that, maybe?

 Yes, put your remaining code into a separate function:

 id=setInterval(function(){myRemainingCode},2000)

	 You can comfortably (well, messily) create a whole set of commands 
	 that run at intervals. The only problem is that you might want to 
	 avoid any other functions running in the intervening time.

[Flashcoders] Protecting Shared Objects

2006-03-21 Thread John Mark Hawley
I'm working on a CD product that needs to store a lot of data locally for easy 
lookup. Before your eyes glaze over and you point me at Zinc, know that this 
poor little product needs to run on OS 9, OSX, and Windows. Zinc doesn't do OS 
9.

But, aha, local shared objects! We can use them! Sure we can, but then there's 
a problem that some wiseguy could wipeout our entire database by clicking 
around in the Flash plugin settings for a good long time.

So: the tentative plan says we could run a little executable via an fscommand 
at startup that checks to see if the LSO's are in good order, and archives them 
elsewhere if so. If they've been hosed, the little executable would un-archive 
the last backup and put them back in the right location.

This sounds a little a rinky-dink, but it seems a heck of a lot easier than 
wrestling with a custom director wrapper and a real database. Just how icky 
does this sound to everyone? Anyone ever attempt something similar?

[Flashcoders] Can't get rid of halo rectangle

2006-03-21 Thread Keith Takayesu
I'm trying to assign custom icons to a Button dynamically in a custom
component. Here is my code snippet:

mybutton = createClassObject ( Button, mybutton , this.startDepth++,
{_x:myx ,_y:myy,_width:15.9,_height:14.7,
falseOverIcon:btnCalendarViewFalseOverSkin,falseUpIcon:btnCalendarVie
wFalseUpSkin,falseDownIcon:btnCalendarViewFalseDownSkin,
falseDisabledIcon:btnCalendarViewFalseDisabledSkin} ); 

However, when I compile the Component to a SWF and then instantiate it,
the green halo rectangle still appears under all the icons. In fact, it
is still active under all of that. This has me baffled, perhaps it's
just too late in the day to figure it out.

2nd problem:
I have also tried to extend the Button class and apply the icons, as
shown in the Advanced Actionscript Components book. Then, I don't have
the rectangle problem, but the registration seems to be off, and height
and width come back as zero!

Blue Skies,
Tak

Any sugestions on that issue?

RE: [Flashcoders] Browse folders from flash

File class in Java. Represents files and directories.

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/io/File.html

You can do some searches and find a ton of tutorials on this I imagine, 
although the API is fairly straight-forward. The list() method is what you're 
interested in.

As far as communication goes, you're going to have to use the Socket and 
ServerSocket classes. They make the task of communication between Flash and 
Java near painless. I can send a little sample socket server over if you want.

[Flashcoders] _global is _global or what?

2006-03-21 Thread Merrill, Jason
I know it's a personal thing, but I usually try and avoid using _global
variables (in fact, I use them so little, this is probably why I have
this question), but I found a case where I needed to use them - at least
temporarily for testing purposes.  Without going in to why I'm using one
(please don't ask, just humor me :) ), I found a weird behavior I cannot
explain.

Say clip A is the main _level0 clip where the _global.myVar is defined.
Clip B is an external .swf references the _global myVar.

When I test my Movie (crtl+Enter) for the main _level0 clipA it loads
clip B in fine and reads the _global variable in fine as well as
expected.  However, when I test the main _level0 clip A in the browser,
clip B does NOT read the _global variable as it did in the Flash IDE
test mode - it's showing as undefined  - why? I thought _global was
_global in the 'ol grande document level stack? No?

This is true from clip B if I try accessing it via either myVar or
_global.myVar.  

Thanks for any insights,

[Flashcoders] activating the rollover/selection animations of a list row when using selectedIndex

2006-03-21 Thread Rich Rodecker
I am using a cell renderer in a DataGrid column, which contains an
image that a user can click on to select that row.  I can set the
selected row using listOwner and selectedIndex, but doing that just
sets the row to fully hilighted, no animation.  Is there a way to
activate that animation, and to activate the rollover animation too?

Re: [Flashcoders] LOADVARS not working IE

2006-03-21 Thread Johnny Zen
Success at last !!!

Thanks all for info. I came across cache issues, but was so confused
by it all, I lost the plot.

Robert, you reply made me look again at this cache issue, and after
reading a comment at the main php website, the answer was so simple...
just typical.

Again for info that might help someone: ( I hope it makes sense, as
still a novice)

I used charles - very usual (although seemed buggy to me) web
development tool that monitors http requests and such live in your
browser window (firefox extension available)
I noticed that the pragma: no cache header with other headers were
being sent from the phpfile to the flash. This caused internet
explorer to not get the data, although works fine in Firefox.

So, it seems that these headers (sent auto. from apache server) were
causing the problem.
(as roberts link he provided)

so, by adding this line at the start of the php file i'm calling from flash:

session_cache_limiter(must-revalidate);

immediately stopped the headers and solved the problem.

Here below is the headers sent before and after I added the line above:

/BEFORE//

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 22 Mar 2006 01:02:36 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.49 (Fedora)
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.10
Expires: Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT
Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0
Pragma: no-cache
Content-Length: 124
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

///AFTER

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 22 Mar 2006 01:03:56 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.49 (Fedora)
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.10
Content-Length: 124
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

//

As you can see, the Pragma: no-cache, Expires: Thu, 19 Nov 1981
08:52:00 GMT and
Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0,
pre-check=0 are removed thus fixing the problem.


You can find the tool Charles the tool at http://www.xk72.com/charles/


Its been an emotional journey finding the answer, full of hopes and
failures. I dont really understand it, just hope this is the end of
the problem.

Also I hope this is handy info for someone in a similar situation.

Oh the credit goes to the person who added the first comment at :

http://de3.php.net/manual/en/function.session-cache-limiter.php



Thanks all for help :)

Maybe the external swf Clip B did not load in time to read that variable (in

Try making Clip B wait 1 frame worth of time after it is loaded then read

Could you give us more info on what exactly is not working with it?
Did you use trace()'s or the debugger to find out exactly which part is
failing?

Re: [Flashcoders] _global is _global or what?

2006-03-21 Thread David Rorex
On 3/21/06, Merrill, Jason [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 I know it's a personal thing, but I usually try and avoid using _global
 variables (in fact, I use them so little, this is probably why I have
 this question), but I found a case where I needed to use them - at least
 temporarily for testing purposes.  Without going in to why I'm using one
 (please don't ask, just humor me :) ), I found a weird behavior I cannot
 explain.

 Say clip A is the main _level0 clip where the _global.myVar is defined.
 Clip B is an external .swf references the _global myVar.

 When I test my Movie (crtl+Enter) for the main _level0 clipA it loads
 clip B in fine and reads the _global variable in fine as well as
 expected.  However, when I test the main _level0 clip A in the browser,
 clip B does NOT read the _global variable as it did in the Flash IDE
 test mode - it's showing as undefined  - why? I thought _global was
 _global in the 'ol grande document level stack? No?

 This is true from clip B if I try accessing it via either myVar or
 _global.myVar.

 Thanks for any insights,


Two possible things which may cause problems, not sure if it is in your
case:
1. If the swfs are published to different versions of the flash player(for
example, a v7 swf and a v6 swf), they won't be able to read each other's
_global's
2. If the swf's are in different domains, they may not be able to read each
other's globals (not completely sure about this), without specifically
allowing the domains using System.security.allowDomain() (in both
directions, A allows B's domain, B allows A's domain)

3. A loading issue? I've had problems where things work offline, but not
online, due to me not checking if certain resources are completely loaded
yet. (Yes I know this is vague, but it's a general hint)


hope this helps,
David R

[Flashcoders] FATAL Zinc issue

2006-03-21 Thread Gene Jannece
I work for a company that is greatly effected by the New Zinc issue that popped 
up. 
I was wondering if anybody had found a quick fix or if it's really totally 
fatal. 

basicly if you make a user in windows with a # (pound sign) in the username 
and run a 
zinc made .exe, you run the risk of loosing all of your data in c:\Documents  
Settings\*

I'll post more info on it in the morning. I've been testing this all day and am 
tired.

[Flashcoders] Database modeling for AS projects

2006-03-21 Thread Honeyghan
I've been doing some research on various modeling tools which would enable
me to easily model databases for future flash projects. Came across two very
interesting solutions which should be on your radar.

My requirements are as follows:

1. Feature rich, stable application which allows reverse engineering of
existing database.
2. Compatibility with MySQL databases and Linux.
3. Ability to generate SQL statements directly from diagrams.
4. Exporting diagrams as an image and or printing is a must.
5. Uses open standards which allow me to utilize output in other
applications.
6. Allow easy navigation of the entire database scheme, which includes
finding and navigating to specified table.
7. Minimal cost.



Solution 1:
DBDesigner4 from fabFORCE.net
(http://www.fabforce.net/dbdesigner4/)

Fits in-line with all of the above and more. While I do wish that there was
an add-on to Eclipse. It's interface is stable offers ease of use, by far a
very powerful application which will save me time during the planning phase
of extensive projects. DBDesigner4 is also available for the Windows
platform and is GNU Licensed.


Solution 2:
Azzurri Clay from Azzurri Ltd.
(http://www.azzurri.jp/en/index.jsp)

Another gem which is a native plug-in for Eclipse. Azzurri Clay available in
either Core or Pro version, Core being free and Pro costing 35,000 YEN --
about $300 give or take. Sadly to say the Pro version is apparently no
longer available for sale outside of Japan according to their english
website.

While the Core version isn't as feature rich as DBDesigner4, it's worth
mentioning if your needs are basic. One thing I found limiting is that there
is no export to image which is important if working in a team environment.

Clay Core supports additional databases besides MySQL such as PostgreSQL,
however, there is no SQL Sever support. As a plug-in for Eclipse it's
available on all Java enabled platforms.




Stay well,
Honeyghan

Re: [Flashcoders] AS2 Vs. AS1

2006-03-21 Thread stone larsen
David,

I'm not familiar with the debugger, i did put in some
trace's but came back with nothing.

here's the URL where I am trying to get it working

http://sireclothing.com/final/

here's the php

?php 
//get email value from POST variable
$email = trim($_POST['email']);
//add a new line for Each email address
$email .=\n; 
//initialize the variable
$fileName = subscribe.txt;
//open files
if (is_writable($fileName)) {
if(!$fp = fopen($fileName,a)){
echo status=Can't open the file name $fileName;
exit;
}
if (fwrite($fp,$email) === FALSE) {
echo status=Can't write to $fileName;
exit;
}
echo status=ok;
fclose($fp);
} else {
echo status=The file $fileName is not writable;
}
?

If you take a look the status goes directly to
Problem. I've been at this all day, no results, any
help?

Best,
Stone

Re: [Flashcoders] Browse folders from flash

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this but have you looked at screenweaver?

I have not tried it myself, still using Zinc, maybe someone else has?

  Any suggest?

   couldnt just create one for every file in a directory I don't know,
   but I would imagine it was a security concern.
