When did this get taken out?  Here's a doc, apparently old, that lists
LocalConnection as a class that has the defualtObjectEncoding property, but
it no longer does:

ByteArray, LocalConnection, NetConnection, NetStream and SharedObject all
implement the ObjectEncoding class and static defaultObjectEncoding, which
control how objects are represented in the Action Message Format (AMF).

The ObjectEncoding class allows classes that serialize objects (such as
NetStream, NetConnection, SharedObject, LocalConnection, and ByteArray) to
interoperate with the prior versions of ActionScript. Values can be set with
ObjectEncoding::AMF0 for the ActionScript 1.0 and ActionScript 2.0 AMF, or
ObjectEncoding::AMF3 for the ActionScript 3.0 AMF.
Does anyone have any more information on this?  What the status might be at
final launch?

You might want to look at ActionStep which has a framework for MVC that

I don't know, but I doubt you'll find one that's completely reliable. 
Certainly in English it's easy to create ambiguous words (eg 'unionised', 
'superbowl', 'weeknight').

Re: [Flashcoders] ObjectEncoding for LocalConnection

2006-05-22 Thread John Grden

Hey Muz, thanks for taking the time ;)

I saw this page, as I usually visit live docs when  the local version
doesn't have the answer.  This line in the link you sent is different from
the one I sent earlier:

The ObjectEncoding class allows classes that serialize objects (such as
NetStream, NetConnection, SharedObject, and ByteArray) to interoperate with
prior versions of ActionScript. - Note how LocalConnection's not mentioned
there.  And in the LocalConnection class, defaultObjectEncoding /
objectEncoding is not included in the list of properties:

http://livedocs.macromedia.com/labs/1/flex20beta3/langref//flash/net/LocalConnection.html#methodSummary

I've tried setting it with:

lc.defaultObjectEncoding = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;
lc[defaultObjectEncoding] = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;
lc.objectEncoding = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;
lc[objectEncoding] = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;

also, I can't seem to locate the classes on my harddrive, does anyone know
where they're at?

Thanks again Muz

[Flashcoders] video card suggestions

2006-05-22 Thread grimmwerks

I'm creating a digital signage playback application that's running on
an HP machine and has to play across three monitors -- lcd screens at
1280x768, playing back in Zinc.


When there's a bit of movement (ie for a test we're looking at
hotelqt.com) -- there's quite a bit of tearing on the screens. Of
course I don't see anything on my G5 (even an old 1.8 dual!).

Right now we've got 2 Nvidia cards in that pc, one is a dualhead, and
the other is a single -- and all of them have the tearing. I do know
that the one Nvidia card - a 5200 -- is low rated...

So suggestions as to cards -- pci cards -- that will deal well with
the 3 screen setup or is the tearing something inherant with Windows?

Thanks all.

Subject: [Flashcoders] cellRender and editField questions

Hey all -

I've got a dataGrid that I'm filling with custom cells -- one is the
multiline cell render example from Macromedia.

How exactly do I deal with an editField for this so that when one
doubleclicks it they can change the text?

Any help appreciated.

Re: [Flashcoders] ObjectEncoding for LocalConnection

2006-05-22 Thread John Grden

Yeah that's exactly it, trying to get Flex front end to communicate with
Xray connector in flash 8 swf.

Right now, I set up a simple LC in a basic Flex front end that has a method
for listening for trace statements and while it connects just fine, nothing
is received on the method defined.  I assume since LC uses AMF that it'd
have to be set to AMF0 for the communication to work.

Maybe I'm missing something simple, but I've tripple checked things like
*when* the connection is made in relation to when the object is instantiated
(hence the custom method being available before connecting).  Any tricks you
used when you did it?

THanks again Muz,

Hey Muz, thanks for taking the time ;)

I saw this page, as I usually visit live docs when  the local version
doesn't have the answer.  This line in the link you sent is different from
the one I sent earlier:

The ObjectEncoding class allows classes that serialize objects (such as
NetStream, NetConnection, SharedObject, and ByteArray) to interoperate
with
prior versions of ActionScript. - Note how LocalConnection's not
mentioned
there.  And in the LocalConnection class, defaultObjectEncoding /
objectEncoding is not included in the list of properties:


http://livedocs.macromedia.com/labs/1/flex20beta3/langref//flash/net/LocalConnection.html#methodSummary

I've tried setting it with:

lc.defaultObjectEncoding = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;
lc[defaultObjectEncoding] = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;
lc.objectEncoding = ObjectEncoding.AMF0;

also, I can't seem to locate the classes on my harddrive, does anyone know
where they're at?

[Flashcoders] Passing TextField Instance Name to Function

2006-05-22 Thread Brandon Krakowsky/MTC
Hello all.  This is probably very simple.  I'm trying to pass the instance 
name of a textfield to a setTextColor function which applies a 
TextFormat.  The function takes 4 parameters, the new format name, the 
textfield instance name, the textfield color, and the textfield alignment. 
 Everything is passed correctly except for the textfield instance name. 
The absolute path is passed, which means _level0. is appended to the 
beginning of the full path. 

So for instance, I pass leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle, where 
tabTitle is the actual textfield.  when I pass it to the setTextColor 
function and trace it, _level0.leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle 
is returned.  This would be fine except for when I try and evaluate the 
variable inside the function with _root[var], it fails.  See below: 

setTextColor(topLeftTab,leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle,0x00,left);
 


function setTextColor(formatName, fieldClip, col, align) { 

_root[formatName] = new TextFormat(); 
_root[formatName].color = col; 
_root[formatName].align = align; 

//this is the problem here. I can't remove _root, because that 
is bad syntax.  this also doesn't work.  so I'm left with _root. + 
_level0.leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle. 
_root[fieldClip].setTextFormat(_root[formatName]); 
} 

Thanks, 
Brandon Lee

Not exactly, but I appreciate the post.

My problem is that even if I set something as editable, I'm not
getting a textField where one can enter the data.

For example in this tutorial: http://www.flash-db.com/Tutorials/cellrenderer/

If you doubleclick the car icon, you get a textField to enter in text.
But in the iconCellRender.as I can't find anything that has to do with
creating that textfield, etc.

I want to have multiple things like this in a grid - something that
someone can double click and change...

Re: [Flashcoders] Passing TextField Instance Name to Function






Here's another...
Using your movieclip path I have this working...
code
function setTextColor(formatName, fieldClip, col, align) {
 formatName = new TextFormat();
formatName.color = col;
formatName.align = align;
 fieldClip.setTextFormat(formatName);
}
leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle.text = testing color;

_root.onLoad = function(){ //just to test that the function is called
 setTextColor(myColor,leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle, 
0x99,left);
 
}
/code

 Hello all.  This is probably very simple.  I'm trying to pass the 
 instance
 name of a textfield to a setTextColor function which applies a
 TextFormat.  The function takes 4 parameters, the new format name, the
 textfield instance name, the textfield color, and the textfield 
 alignment.
  Everything is passed correctly except for the textfield instance 
 name.
 The absolute path is passed, which means _level0. is appended to the
 beginning of the full path.

 So for instance, I pass 
 leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle, where
 tabTitle is the actual textfield.  when I pass it to the 
 setTextColor
 function and trace it, 
 _level0.leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle
 is returned.  This would be fine except for when I try and evaluate 
 the
 variable inside the function with _root[var], it fails.  See below:

 setTextColor(topLeftTab,leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle, 
 0x00,left);


 function setTextColor(formatName, fieldClip, col, align) {

 _root[formatName] = new TextFormat();
 _root[formatName].color = col;
 _root[formatName].align = align;

 //this is the problem here. I can't remove _root, because 
 that
 is bad syntax.  this also doesn't work.  so I'm left with _root. +
 _level0.leftInfoClip.topLeftTabs.leftTab.tabTitle.
 _root[fieldClip].setTextFormat(_root[formatName]);
 }

 Thanks,

Re: [Flashcoders] problems loading an image into a movieclip

2006-05-22 Thread Serge Jespers
You probably don't see the image because you can't load BMP's in to  
Flash... Only SWF, JPEG, GIF or PNG if you're using Flash 8. When  
targeting for older Flash versions, you can only load SWF  JPEG's.

Not exactly, but I appreciate the post.

My problem is that even if I set something as editable, I'm not getting
a textField where one can enter the data.

For example in this tutorial:
http://www.flash-db.com/Tutorials/cellrenderer/

If you doubleclick the car icon, you get a textField to enter in text.
But in the iconCellRender.as I can't find anything that has to do with
creating that textfield, etc.

I want to have multiple things like this in a grid - something that
someone can double click and change...

[Flashcoders] Can form based nested screens be delayed if not external

Is the only way to delay loading of child forms in an form based app-if the

right in them and am using ARP.  I am wondering the best way to shrink that
initial load time.  Right now I'm thinking the only way is using external

RE: [Flashcoders] hitTest vs onRollOver/onRollOut

2006-05-22 Thread phaedrus
Thanks a bunch for the info! I'm surprised to hear that the hitTest actually
performs better, although I agree that the things I may have to add will
more than balance it out. 

Basically, I'm trying to grow my own button class which has disabled and
on/off states in addition to rollover and press.  I'd like to be able to use
hitTests rather than rollover and rolloff because I frequently run into
situations where I want to put a button inside a movie which itself may have
rollover or rolloff event handlers and the event doesn't reach my button.

I like the hit test approach, but if there was a significant performance
concern, I was going to have to consider another way of going about it.

I've found some AS2.0 classes at
http://www.senocular.com/flash/actionscript.php which may do part of what I
need.  The main trick now is to figure out how to make a nice packaged
component that allows a designer to modify the look without having to do too
much work.

I hope to figure out how to deliver them similar to Elvis Mehmedovic's work
(http://chq.emehmedovic.com/) where all the elements are readily available
in the flash movie for tweaking if necessary.

phaedrus,

You will find that, in the beginning, the hitTests will use up less
processor (better performance). The examples you have below, for example.
However, if you program all the logic you'd need to behave exactly as the
other method (keeping track of all the details, etc) you'll quickly begin to
match the performance and it may end up not being worth the time and bugs
anymore. I still want to build a hitTest solution, mostly for my own
enjoyment, that will at least have equal performance if not better. But it
becomes harder for other developers to work with non-standard inventions,
cool as they may be, and eventually people just get frustrated with your
code.

If it's just for you or you don't plan and building a full mouse-behavior
replacement, try experimenting with _dropTarget ... there's some
possibilities there ;)


good luck,
Tyler

Re: [Flashcoders] hitTest vs onRollOver/onRollOut

2006-05-22 Thread Tyler Wright

The main thing that can really add up in processor is the number of
MovieClips at the same level (sharing the same parent). You'll save
processor best if you don't have any on-event events as well, such as
onPress, etc. It's because Flash spends a lot on keeping up with it.

It's really fun to play with ... I had a system that used _droptarget to get
the topmost movieclip and dispatch events up it's parent chain much like AS3
does now. However, the processor was not too friendly, but I know I could do
a lot more viable solution now-days. Let us know how it goes!

[Flashcoders] Alpha Masking Weirdness

2006-05-22 Thread Rifled Cloaca

All,

I'm masking a MovieClip with an alpha mask using cacheAsBitmap.  The
MovieClip has a dynamic text field inside it that I populate at a later
time.  When I play the movie, the area where the textfield is remains
empty.  If I drag the corner of the player to resize the movie, the text
magically appears.  Anyone run into this sort of weird behavior?

[Flashcoders] Tweening Multiple Objects at the same time

2006-05-22 Thread azsl1326-email
Hello All ---

I am using a custom tween class (SuperEase) I found online to tween objects. 
However, I have run into a situation where I need to have two objects start 
tweening at the same time. The SuperEase class does not allow for this 
functionality. I can tween both objectives sequentially (one starts after the 
other has started) however this produces a noticeable lag between the 2 
objects. I have tried to resolve it by changing the # of frames / seconds, but 
this is somewhat tedious to match up between the 2 objects. Can anyone offer a 
suggestion on how to resolve this issue so that the 2 objects start tweening 
simultaneously? Any suggestions on an alternate class?

Thanks for any and all replies.

[Flashcoders] Issue with movieClip.onRelease

2006-05-22 Thread Craig Stanford

Hello Everyone,

I am experiencing a strange issue when I am trying to do an onRelease in the
following code. All it does is cycle through the items in an XML file, then
assign the data to labels, buttons etc. Everything works fine until I try to
assign the URL. Even when I try to trace it out inside the onRelease
function it gives undefined. Is this a flash issue or is there something
here I am missing?

Any help is much appreciated.

CODE

function buildNav():Void {
   var dropDownValue:Number = 0;
   for (var i:Number = 0; i_root.numberOfItems; i++) {
   //attach the nav Item
   trace(done iteration +i);
   navContainer.attachMovie(navItem, navItem+i, i);
   trace(navItem+i+ has been attached);
   //position the nav Item
   navContainer[navItem+i]._y = dropDownValue;
   dropDownValue += 15;
   navContainer[navItem+i]._x = navContainer[navItem+i]._x;
   //assign the title
   navContainer[navItem+i].navItemText =
_root.contentItems[i].navItemText;
   //var thisURL = _root.contentItems[i].jobUrl;
   navContainer[navItem+i].onRelease = function() {
   getURL(_root.contentItems[1].jobUrl, _blank);
   trace(_root.contentItems[1].jobUrl);
   };
   }
}

Cheers,
Craig.

I never user SuperEase so I can't comment on it, but you'd do yourself a 
favor if you started using one of these instead:


Fuse Kit
http://www.mosessupposes.com/Fuse/

Laco Tween
http://laco.wz.cz/tween/

MC Tween
http://hosted.zeh.com.br/mctween/

These three have the same approach on most accounts - your preference will 
depend on what you code and how.


Also, you can always use the built-in flash tweening classes. Here's some 
info on that:


http://www.actionscript.org/tutorials/advanced/Tween-Easing_Classes_Documented/index.shtml
http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/flash/articles/tweening.html

I wouldn't recommend though, using the extensions above will give you more 
features and will be easier to code.

What version of flash are you using? YOu can try delegate to solve scoping
issues but i kinda set it up in two ways as the comments suggest.
Also, avoid references to root if possible.


import mx.util.Delegate;



function buildNav(p_content:Array):Void {
for (var i:Number = 0; inumberOfItems; i++) {
//attach the nav Item
trace(done iteration +i);
var mc:MovieClip= navContainer.attachMovie(navItem, navItem+i,
i);

mc._y =i*15
mc._x = 0
//assign the title
mc.navItemText =p_content[i].navItemText;
// you could do this to correct scope
mc.link=p_content[i].jobURL;
mc.select=Delegate.create(this,onSelect);// this allows you to
pass //params
mc.onRelease=function(){this.select(this.link)}
// or you could do something like :

   // mc.onRelease=function(){
getURL(this.link,_blank);
  }

}

}

function onSelect(p_url:String){
   getURL(p_url,_blank);

Try tracing the _root.contentItems[1].jobUrl in the different steps of
the program: when you create it, before you enter the onRelease
defining part, etc.  The problem must lie in referencing it.

Note, however, that this code won't work (look at part 1):

Hi guys,

Thanks for your fast responses.

Ramon, your solution worked and I can see the values of the URL inside the
onRelease function when i trace it, however a browser wont launch when i
click the button. Im not sure why. Any suggestions?

CODE
function buildNav():Void {
   var dropDownValue:Number = 0;
   for (var i:Number = 0; i_root.numberOfItems; i++) {
   //attach the nav Item
   trace(done iteration +i);
   navContainer.attachMovie(navItem, navItem+i, i);
   trace(navItem+i+ has been attached);
   //position the nav Item
   navContainer[navItem+i]._y = dropDownValue;
   dropDownValue += 15;
   navContainer[navItem+i]._x = navContainer[navItem+i]._x;
   //assign the title
   navContainer[navItem+i].navItemText =
_root.contentItems[i].navItemText;
   //var thisURL = _root.contentItems[i].jobUrl;
   navContainer[navItem+i].__n = i;
   navContainer[navItem+i].onRelease = function() {

trace(_root.contentItems[this.__n].jobUrl);

   getURL(_root.contentItems[this.__n].jobUrl, _blank);

Hi guys,

Thanks for your fast responses.

Ramon, your solution worked and I can see the values of the URL inside the
onRelease function when i trace it, however a browser wont launch when i
click the button. Im not sure why. Any suggestions?


CODE
function buildNav():Void {
var dropDownValue:Number = 0;
for (var i:Number = 0; i_root.numberOfItems; i++) {
//attach the nav Item
trace(done iteration +i);
navContainer.attachMovie(navItem, navItem+i, i);
trace(navItem+i+ has been attached);
//position the nav Item
navContainer[navItem+i]._y = dropDownValue;
dropDownValue += 15;
navContainer[navItem+i]._x = navContainer[navItem+i]._x;
//assign the title
navContainer[navItem+i].navItemText =
_root.contentItems[i].navItemText;
//var thisURL = _root.contentItems[i].jobUrl;
navContainer[navItem+i].__n = i;

navContainer[navItem+i].onRelease = function() {

trace(_root.contentItems[this.__n].jobUrl);
-THIS WORKS
getURL(_root.contentItems[this.__n].jobUrl,
_blank);   -THIS DOESNT
};
}
}

Cheers,
Craig.

 Try tracing the _root.contentItems[1].jobUrl in the different steps of
 the program: when you create it, before you enter the onRelease
 defining part, etc.  The problem must lie in referencing it.

 Note, however, that this code won't work (look at part 1):

 You'll need to save the i on the button itself so it can remember
 (look at part 2)

  Hello Everyone,
 
  I am experiencing a strange issue when I am trying to do an onRelease
 in the
  following code. All it does is cycle through the items in an XML file,
 then
  assign the data to labels, buttons etc. Everything works fine until I
 try to
  assign the URL. Even when I try to trace it out inside the onRelease
  function it gives undefined. Is this a flash issue or is there
 something
  here I am missing?
 
  Any help is much appreciated.
 
  CODE
 
  function buildNav():Void {
  var dropDownValue:Number = 0;
  for (var i:Number = 0; i_root.numberOfItems; i++) {
  //attach the nav Item
  trace(done iteration +i);
  navContainer.attachMovie (navItem, navItem+i, i);
  trace(navItem+i+ has been attached);
  //position the nav Item
  navContainer[navItem+i]._y = dropDownValue;
  dropDownValue += 15;
  navContainer[navItem+i]._x = navContainer[navItem+i]._x;
  //assign the title
  navContainer[navItem+i].navItemText =
  _root.contentItems[i].navItemText;
  //var thisURL = _root.contentItems[i].jobUrl;
  navContainer[navItem+i].onRelease = function() {
  getURL(_root.contentItems[1].jobUrl, _blank);
  trace(_root.contentItems[1].jobUrl);
  };
  }
  }
 
  Cheers,
  Craig.
