Re: [Flashcoders] growing animation

2006-06-21 Thread Matthias Dittgen

there was an article Making of www.interone.de in a german journal
called PAGE.
http://www.page-online.de/archiv/download.php?id=200602
But I can't remember about the flash approaches they did. I only
remember that they used Cinema4D for rendering, Photoshop and the
Flash IDE (not FAMES or the like).

[Flashcoders] Why pressing keyboard combination of CTRL + BACKSPACE has such a strange effect on Flash TextField native object?

2006-06-21 Thread Andriy Panas
Hello ,

  This problem relates to the Textfield native object of Flash player.

  Pressing CTRL+BACKSPACE while inputting text into Input typed
  Textfield insert a black square box at the end of the text string
  while SWF is ran in Internet Explorer 6, Windows XP SP1 or SP2.

  I put the AVI video file that illustrates this problem here:
  http://www.netsoul.com.ua/sonopia/TextField_bug.avi
  
  
   I can reproduce it with Flash 8 authored simple SWF file, check FLA
and SWF file attached.
  
  Environment:
  ---
  Internet Explorer 6, Flash player 7(8), Win XP SP 2 Russian

  To repeat the bug please do the following:
  
  1) Create on the stage Input typed Textfield

  2) Run SWF in Internet Explorer

  3) Enter some text into instance of Input Textfield native Flash
  object.

  4) Press Ctrl+Backspace keyboard combination

  5) Error: The last symbol of the text is got replaced with some
  weird character, presumably empty square.

[Flashcoders] base param and reload on IE

2006-06-21 Thread Alan Queen

Has anyone else seen this?

We are seeing an issue related to using the BASE attribute where the .swf is
served from a different sub domain than the html page hosting it..

I have used this time and time again without fail...

works great when you first hit the page, but if you use IE and simply hit
reload on the page, it totally disregards the BASE attribute...

We are using lighttpd on linux to serve the content.

It doesnt happen on windoze and mozilla works every time.. only IE has this
problem..

[Flashcoders] Odd ExternalInterface error in IE6-7

2006-06-21 Thread Andreas Rønning

Getting this error:



try { mini-player.SetReturnValue(__flash__toXML(playerMethods.getUrl()) 
); } catch (e) { mini-player.SetReturnValue(undefined/); }


Error: mini is undefined



the string mini-player is nowhere in the source for the swf, nor is it 
in any text field, nor is it anywhere at all. This is an Internet 
Explorer specific error that occurs when the method playerMethods.getUrl 
is called with ExternalInterface.


Anyone know what's going on here?

[Flashcoders] Communication between two swfs?

2006-06-21 Thread Peter Oliver Geller
Hi folks,
 
can somebody tell me which is the best known method i can use to comunicate
between two or more swf files.
For example i want to use an easy way to send a broadcast message to
different machines where a standalone player is running and waiting for
incoming messages from my broadcaster swf?
 
Don´t know if should use a flashmediaserver or maybe it exists a phpversion
to handle the communiation???
 
Thanks

[Flashcoders] Flash/ASO and ZoneAlarm Security Suite (v6.5.714.000).

2006-06-21 Thread John Grden

If you use zone alarm and you did the latest update (like I did), you might
notice that you're going through a slight nightmare right now with file
modified dates not being updated when you save and having to clear ASO or do
a clean build with Flex2.

ZoneAlarm Security Suite (v6.5.714.000) apparently causes this issue.  You
need to downgrade to the last version or un-install until they get a fix
together.

Hth,

PS I'm going to verbally harass them to tears and general weeping.  No need
to spam them...nah, go ahead.

Peter,

ElectroServer is a Java application. If you have a dedicated server then you 
can just install it there. Alternatively, you can talk to your web hosting 
company and they may install it for you. I know that flashtampa.com has 
affordable accounts and ElectroServer is supported there.


Good luck

Why worry about code you've written before? If it were an issue then
no one would be able to build more than one web page in a life time
because you'll inevitably use the same embed tags more than once. No
client knows how or what you code, much less who your other clients
are.

Also, if you let someone pay you $11 dollars an hour - then you are
only worth $11 dollars an hour.

  However on the topic of 'pre-made code', I am now wondering what is the

pay
  you money for code, be it 30k or 100k, is it right to use your past
  developed code on future code?
 
  I think when taking on gig's, it's meant that you are generating code
they
  don't would not initially have. Once the gig is done, I think the
business
  has an understanding that they paid you for the code and they own the
code?
 
 
 They usually own the code but not the things that you have learned
 writing it.
  If they don't own the code, then does it becomes a matter of licensing?
 
 If it one or 2 classes, then you can rewrite it pretty easily. If it is
 a whole set of functionality that you want to reuse, it is probably a
 good idea to ask for permission. They will likely say yes and they
 will be very impressed by your ethics.
  I guess what I am asking is if you have previously developed code and
use it
  on other clients, is it ok?
 
 
 It leaves your new clients open to being sued. Not likely to happen but
 it can be very embarrassing.

   From what I've gleaned, while the rate quoted to you may be low, it
  does sound like a transitionary rate and appropriate. Not that you're
  only worth it but because you sound very inexperienced in the market.
 
  What I mean by inexperienced is you have to ask if 30k is too low,
  and you also have another day job which sounds unrelated to your
  Flash/Flex work. So at this point, you may have to grab at what's
  offered.
 
  I'd recommend caution with this gig and make sure you're not tied to
  it too long. I'd look at it as a paid internship where you're
  basically getting your first notch in your belt as you change careers.
 
  If you haven't considered creating a portfolio for yourself, now is
  the time to build it. Don't put too much time into it and especially
  don't let it hold you in almost done limbo. A list of skills, a
  gallery of projects completed (even student and/or lame ones), and
  contact info are all you need at this stage.
 
  In the meantime, begin to look around your area and find out where
  the real Flash/Flex work is (studios, ad agencies, internet
  companies). Begin to make contacts. Let them know who you are and
  you're availability.
 
  Part of making $50/hr ( much more) isn't always about making a
  decent rate like everyone else does. It's often about having multiple
  potential clients needing your help and willing to pay for it. And
  each project you build adds more and more pre-made pieces you have
  for the next gig. Those pre-built pieces are there to save your
  client time, but still make you $$ - another foundation for why we
  can make much more $$ per hour.
 
  It'll take time to build up your rate, so focus on the first steps:
  do a good job with your first gig, get your portfolio up, and get in
  touch with the proper market.
 
  good luck =)

2006-06-21 Thread Peter Oliver Geller
Hi Jobe,

i will try it out, but everytime i want to go to flashtampa my firefox crash
down, this happens also as i was on your site for the electroserver and
flashmediaserver, don´t know why this happens??? In the Internet Explorer i
get a failure message about a add-on problem with the Flash85.ocx file???

Hmm, i´ll speak with my hosting partner and take a look if it works?

But is a javabased XMLSocket server the only way to communicate between swfs
on different machines?

Thanks

Peter

Re: [Flashcoders] Communication between two swfs?

2006-06-21 Thread Jobe Makar
If you are seeing the crash from multiple unrelated sites, then I'm guessing 
that's a Flash player bug.


No, you don't need a Java-based socket-server. They come in many flavors. 
Also, there are free ones (like oregano, red5), and commercial ones like 
ElectroServer, FMS, Unity. Its just a matter of your needs and budget. If 
you are going to be connected hundreds or thousands of users, then you'd be 
better off with a commercial product since they are battle tested and can 
provide support. If you are looking for something much smaller scale and 
simplistic (just routing messages), then just about any solution will work.

For first i think i will test your electroserver because the plan is to have
a stable server who is able to communicate with more than 100 hundred users,
but is the flashmedia server similiar to your product or are they totally
different. For first it sounds to me that your server is better for
multiuser applications and the flashmedia server is better for streaming

I will check it out!

Re: [Flashcoders] Communication between two swfs?

2006-06-21 Thread Jobe Makar

Peter,

Since ElectroServer is a product of my company of course I'll say its better 
:) I think you should ask some non-Electrotankers for input on that 
otherwise you're getting a biased assessment. They definately are different 
products. FMS supports binary transfer (for audio/video), and is more 
expensive. Most of the other features are supported by both ElectroServer 
and FMS such as server-side ActionScript, database support, etc.

[Flashcoders] getting rid of the over a button like little hand over a movieclip

2006-06-21 Thread Alberto Florentin
I am sure this has been discussed before, but cannot find it

I have a programmatically created movieclip, mclip, with some code that
assigns functions to mouse events, like this:

code
private function initMouseActions() {
mclip.owner = this;
mclip.onRollOver= function() {
this.owner.notifyListeners(RollOver);
}
mclip.onRollOut = function() {
this.owner.notifyListeners(RollOut);
}
mclip.onMouseDown = function() {
if (this.hitTest(_xmouse, _ymouse, true) ) {
this.owner.setClicked(true);
this.owner.notifyListeners(MouseDown);
}
else this.owner.setClicked(false);
if (this.owner.clicked == true)
this.owner.setDragging(this.owner.clicked);

}
mclip.onMouseMove = function() {
if (this.hitTest(_xmouse, _ymouse, true) ) {
this.owner.notifyListeners(MouseMove);
}
}
mclip.onMouseUp = function() {
this.owner.mouseDown = false;
if (this.owner.clicked == true) {
/* TODO next 2 actions should be handled
* by listeners after notify */
this.owner.setDragging(false);
this.owner.startDrag_ = false;
this.owner.notifyListeners(MouseUp);
}
}

}

/code

This works as expected.  When I want to freeze or unfreeze the movieclip,
I use

code
public function set frozen(b:Boolean) {
if (b==true) {

delete mclip.onRollOver;
mclip.onRollOver=null;

delete mclip.onRollOut;
mclip.onRollOut=null;

delete mclip.onMouseDown;
mclip.onMouseDown=null;

delete mclip.onMouseMove;
mclip.onMouseMove=null;

delete mclip.onMouseUp;
mclip.onMouseUp=null;
}
else
initMouseActions();
}
/code


This also works ok, BUT the cursor stays the over a button style of a
little hand.

Why is that?  And how can I get rid of it, short of using commands to change
the cursor?

Thanks a lot

Alberto

RE: [Flashcoders] getting rid of the over a button like little hand over a movieclip

2006-06-21 Thread Bieniasz, Myles
You only need to delete the function, not set it to null.  By setting it
to null, the player still has a reference to the function whether it's
null or not.  Hope that helps.

[Flashcoders] how to handle large menus

2006-06-21 Thread Sam

What is the best way to handle generating a large menu?

What I'm doing currently is looping thru an array and creating a mc  
and adding a text feild to it, as you can imagine this craps out on  
larger arrays.
I'm sure this is not the preferred way to do something like this and  
I'm looking for suggestions.


Is there a way to just have 1 textfield with a list of clickable items?

Thanks for any help

You could use asfunction.

Re: [Flashcoders] how to handle large menus

2006-06-21 Thread Marc Hoffman
You can definitely have a single textfield with clickable links. 
You'll need to use htmlText and use a href tags to create the 
links. The links should call asfunctions that are defined elsewhere 
in the Flash. See asfunction in the Help files. I'd also recommend 
using CSS for applying decoration and effects to the links, though 
you can also just add underlining, bolding, and font colors directly 
in the html tags. Here's one example of such a 
menu:  http://www.dartfrogmedia.com/birds/knowYourBirds (click Show 
List for the menu).

Are all your links viewable on stage at once or do you have to scroll
through them?

If you're scrolling through them you only have to render 'n' viewable
items out of the total and just keep track of where you are in the model

[Flashcoders] Rotation and BitmapData.draw() with text

2006-06-21 Thread Danny Kodicek
I'm trying to apply a rotation to a BitmapData draw() command and it's 
simply not working. Anyone have any pointers about what I'm doing wrong? In 
the code below, when tRotation = 0, the text is drawn correctly. When it's 
any other value (including 1), nothing is drawn at all. This is running in a 
test movie containing either a movieClip or a TextField called txt. And when 
I replace this with a graphic, it rotates fine.


import flash.display.BitmapData;
import flash.geom.Matrix;
 var bmp:BitmapData = new BitmapData(1000, 1000, true);
var myMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
var tRotation = 1 // test value
var rotMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
 rotMatrix.rotate(tRotation*Math.PI/180);
 myMatrix.concat(rotMatrix);
var translateMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
translateMatrix.translate(200,200);
myMatrix.concat(translateMatrix);
bmp.draw(txt, myMatrix);
tClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip(test, this.getNextHighestDepth())
tClip.attachBitmap(bmp, 0)

I could manage by creating a second BitmapData object and rotating *that*, 
but I'm hoping it's just a simple fix somewhere that I've missed.

Is there a way to just have 1 textfield with a list of clickable items?


how large would that array be ?

Re: [Flashcoders] how to handle large menus

2006-06-21 Thread Sam

Thanks guys, I'll look into asfunction

You can definitely have a single textfield with clickable links.  
You'll need to use htmlText and use a href tags to create the  
links. The links should call asfunctions that are defined elsewhere  
in the Flash. See asfunction in the Help files. I'd also  
recommend using CSS for applying decoration and effects to the  
links, though you can also just add underlining, bolding, and font  
colors directly in the html tags. Here's one example of such a  
menu:  http://www.dartfrogmedia.com/birds/knowYourBirds (click  
Show List for the menu).

[Flashcoders] Problem migrating Flex1.5 to Flex2.0

2006-06-21 Thread silpa s
Hi all, 

We have around 13 modules for the project say ABC,
i've to work on one of the module and we are using
Flex2.0. But the re two modules already implemented
their modules in Flex 1.5. But we all share common
web.xml and deploy as a single EAR file. 

Now how about other modules (Flex 1.5)? Will they have
to migrate to flex 2.0? There is lot of work involved
to migrate to Flex2.0 now and they don't have any
plans to do that in future. Can any one guide me for
this problem? Can we mix Flex1.5 and 2.0 under a
single EAR?

Thanks

 Are Abstract Classes and Interfaces the same thing ?

Flash doesn't actually have abstract classes, but I like to fake it
sometimes by simply making the constructor private. That way you can't
instantiate the class itself (at least from code external to the class),
but have to extend it and instantiate subclasses.

I also like to fake abstract methods by creating methods in the
abstract superclass which just throw errors. That way you have to
override them in subclasses before you can use them.

[Flashcoders] Sample PHP script for handling XML from Flash

2006-06-21 Thread matt stuehler

All,

This may be more than I should ask for, but I'm looking for a sample
or two of PHP that can do the following:

- Receive an XML doc from Flash
- Extract certain nodevalues and attribute values
- Create and SQL query that stores those values in a MySQL database

and vice versa:

- Retrieve a record from a MySQL database
- create an XML doc containing the record's values
- send that XML doc to Flash

I've done this many times before with ASP and SQLserver or Access (so
I'm familiar with the Actionscript and SQL), but I've never used PHP
or MySQL before.

I'm hoping that with a working sample, I can modify it to the
specifics of my project.

I'd be very grateful for any sample code, helpful advice, or useful links.

Cheers,
Matt Stuehler

I like using Flash Remoting with ColdFusion components for the following
reasons:

1. Fast development
2. Flexibility: using Remoting and CFCs, you can move a variety of data
types over the pipe
3. Extensibility
4. Maintainability
5. Fast data transfers (can be much more efficient than moving XML)
6. Easily handle authentication and security with ColdFusion (e.g. CFLOGIN)
7. Tight integration between Flash and CF helps to keep things simpler

Re: [Flashcoders] Sample PHP script for handling XML from Flash

2006-06-21 Thread matt stuehler

Jim, Mike,

Many thanks for your responses! I'm going to look into both resources
right away.

Mike - a question about amfphp...

With some of our projects, we build the RIA and host it ourselves,
which means we're responsible for both the front- and back-ends. So, I
could use something like amfphp.

However, with most of our work, we develop an RIA for a client, who
handles the back-end themselves. So, we develop our apps so that they
send and receive XML, which means the client can use whatever they
want in the backend: asp, asp.net, webservices, php, whatever...

Is this a valid position? E.g., if we used amfphp, are we then
limiting our flexibility on the back-end?

Cheers,
Matt

parse.  

Right now I am using Flash  to SOAP WSDL (.NET) to receive XML strings
- works good because they are small packets of data, but wouldn't want
to do that for a larger app.  Would have the .NET developer write some
methods for me to grab the data directly or use something else.

CF costs money.  PHP is free.

You just build the CFC, set access=remote, and you're done on the

I completely agree - especially when you are doing authentication and  
serving content with role-based permissins.  Plus if you are doing  
simple database work, you can use SSAS with ColdFuion as well.


Thanks to the lessons of my ColdFusion mentor Kevin Aebig, I find  
ColdFusion and Remoting much more rewarding for the time I put into  
it than working with PHP (when Flash is involved).

 Almost every hosting company has PHP already installed.  I

 CF costs money.  PHP is free.
 
 PHP wins, at least for me.  Hence, the IMO.

RE: [Flashcoders] RTF text in a field?

2006-06-21 Thread Mike
Possible, yes. Simple, no.

You'd essentially have to build an RTF parser in ActionScript to convert
RTF to (X)HTML. I don't know of any such parsers have been built
already.

Depending on what your back-end is, there may be tools to do the
conversion there instead.

[Flashcoders] TextInput text field height

2006-06-21 Thread Ville Walveranta
Hi all,

 

I am having a problem with Flash 8's TextInput component. I have changed the
typeface to FFF's Progress bold, a bitmap font. It works fine (sharp and
all), except for two issues: 1) letter W is not bold even though all other
characters are, and 2) letters with descents such as y or q or g are cropped
so that only a stub of the descent is displayed. Increasing the input
field's vertical size does not help. Apparently it contains a TextField
whose height is not increased. Same thing happens with other bitmap fonts
with descents. 

 

So, the question is: is there any way to change the internal text field
height of the TextInput component, somehow?

 

Thanks,

 

Ville

[Flashcoders] XP Components gone bad

2006-06-21 Thread Ville Walveranta

I was earlier asking about XP Components. Even though they *seem* very cool,
the problem is that programmatic use of them is still a mystery to me. Yes,
they can be used with xp.system.Application.Run() as suggested by the
documentation. But if you don't want to build the entire app based on XP
Components, you may be out of luck (if there is a way to instantiate an XP
Component in a program that doesn't run with xp.system.Application.Run() I
haven't been able to figure it out - I can get an instance on the stage, but
then the program locks up crashing the whole Studio 8). 

And what's worse, there is absolutely no communication from the manufacturer
any longer. I've emailed them (him?) several times, and have received no
response (over last couple of weeks). Overall, their site seems to have gone
dormant, the last news item was posted in July of last year.

Even if I had received a short response, no, it can't be done, it would've
saved tons of time by me not even attempting to figure it out :-/.

I was left with the component set that I could not use for the project I
purchased it for (they're non-refundable :P).

You're probably going to write from scratch either way, it wont be a
'port'.
You can look at the source code to the C# for ideas on how to do things,
but
the architechure is different enough that you aren't really going to be
able
to reuse anything.

Most types of drawing are pretty easy to do in Flash, and the user
experience tends to be better as well -- (more people have flash installed
already, no 10 second hang while the JVM loads up, etc etc).

 The documenation is detailed, but there is so much stuff in the

The XP Components documentation is mostly autogenerated (from code) with
AS2DOC and while it describes the classes' methods and properties fairly
well, IT HAS VIRTUALLY NO CODE EXAMPLES! That annoys heck out of me; just
*one* simple this-is-how-you-instantiate-XP-Component-from-custom-class
example would have made my day (or, two weeks, rather). Instead all examples
use their xp.system.Application.Run() mehtod. Perhaps this means that's the
only way to use them, but why?

They're in Hong Kong, I think.
