RE: [Flashcoders] Junior Developer Flash/Flex Salary?

2006-06-22 Thread Lee McColl-Sylvester
Commercial experience is totally different to working experience.  I've 7 years 
professional commercial experience in Flash, 3 years commercial experience in 
.NET, 7 years in SQL Server, 2 years in Oracle, have been director twice plus 
have a huge list of other abilities, and all I can get is £30k a year.  Damn 
bloody low british salaries :-(  If I were you, I'd be happy with yer 55k :-P

Subject: [Flashcoders] Junior Developer Flash/Flex Salary?

Does 30-55K a year sound right with benefits for a junior developer? I have
a college degree and an extensive IT background but, I'm just now getting
into a professional job environment developing but, I have been using flash
for some time now. 30K sounds wa too low, would you agree? If someone
had 2-3 years experience, what should a flash/flex developer get? What
should they start at?

Thanks

[Flashcoders] Muting a flash video stream

2006-06-22 Thread Elvin Tan

Hi Guys,

  Adding mute buttons to some of my applications, got it working fine for
mp3/sound objects.
  I've a simple video streaming solution from FMS - Flash Client.

 Here's the code snippet.

nc1.showVideo = function(video) {
   ns1= new NetStream(nc1);
   ns1.setBufferTime(_global.buffertime);
   video1.attachVideo(ns1);
   video1.attachAudio(false);
   video1.deblocking(_global.deblock);
   video1.smoothing(_global.smoothing);
   ns1.play(video);
}

 (nc1 being the net connection to the FMS,)

 The .atttachAudio(false); was supposed to didsable the audio, but not, it
doesnt work :(

 Any ideas ?

Elvin

[Flashcoders] the Function class and messing with it

2006-06-22 Thread Meinte van't Kruis

Hi folks,

In common javascript it's possible to alert a function and 'see' the
function
as it is.

function test(){
   alert(A);
}

Prints out in javascript excactly as it is, in actionscript you get '[Type
Function]'.

Is there any way to somehow to see the internals of a function in
actionscript (2.0, though im curious
bout 3.0 as well)?

It would be fun to do, because one could alter functions run-time that way.
I've tried using
external interface to kick a function to javascript, but this won't do, just
throws a javascript
error. I also tried Function.valueOf() instead of toString(), but this won't
do either.

Anyone has an idea on this one?

thanks!

RE: [Flashcoders] Best Flash data access way opinions

2006-06-22 Thread stacey
Depends on your knowledge level too

CF is dead easy to pick up - you can easily learn to create a CFC in no
time. The class based structure of PHP when creating a service throws a
couple people off in terms of scope resolution  So depending on your
background if you know neither language, one might be easier to pick up
than the other.

CF costs. Yes.
PHP is free and most hosts support it, Yes.

But unless I am totally wrong, AMFPHP wasn't out of beta until recently.
And it isn't officially supported by Adobe/MM, or if it is, it wasn't
until recently. CF is.

I've used both and frankly they are both dead easy to install, to create
services and the AMFPHP is pretty reliable, I've created some bigger
applications with it no problem and don't have an issue recommending it to
a client now.

If you do:

htmlText = pLine 1/ppLine 2/ppLine 3/p;

The TextField will render like this:

And the actual htmlText would be:

P ALIGN=LEFTFONT FACE=Times New Roman SIZE=12 COLOR=#00

There are no paragraph tags.

But if you do:

htmlText = pLine 1/p\npLine 2/p\npLine 3/p;

The TextField will render like this:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3

And the actual htmlText would be:

The only way I can replicate that problem is if the textfield is single line

It's the same. If you do:

It renders like:

To the original poster; the other way to get it work is:

multiline = true;

Re: [Flashcoders] Muting a flash video stream

I think attachAudio(false) is wrong syntax, you should pass in a
movieclip... check out the help for an example:

Hi Guys,

   Adding mute buttons to some of my applications, got it working fine for

   I've a simple video streaming solution from FMS - Flash Client.

  Here's the code snippet.

nc1.showVideo = function(video) {
ns1= new NetStream(nc1);
ns1.setBufferTime(_global.buffertime);
video1.attachVideo(ns1);
video1.attachAudio(false);
video1.deblocking(_global.deblock);

ns1.play(video);
}

  (nc1 being the net connection to the FMS,)

  The .atttachAudio(false); was supposed to didsable the audio, but not, it
doesnt work :(

  Any ideas ?

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

2006-06-22 Thread Chris Allen

On 6/21/06, matt stuehler [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:


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?



There are open source implementations of AMF in .NET, Java, and PHP,
as well as closed source versions for multiple platforms, so
compatibility shouldn't be too much of a concern.

For more information look here:

You can also add Red5 to the list presented there.

I hope that helps.

[Flashcoders] getTextExtent weirdness

2006-06-22 Thread Danny Kodicek
I've noticed a post about this in the archives, but it was described as a 
Mac issue and I'm getting it on a PC. I'm trying to use 
TextFormat.getTextExtent() to do some image calculations, but I'm getting 
enormous values. I suspect it's because my text includes newline characters, 
but that's just a guess.


The docs say the function is deprecated, but the liveDocs emphatically deny 
this. Anyone got any suggestions?

Maybe someone can offer some alternative suggestions. I need to get a bitmap 
representing a menu. It will contain n lines of text, and needs to be 
resized automatically to the extent of the text. So far so simple. But the 
problem I'm having is that field.textWidth (and autosize too) crops the text 
too close, with the result that the top and bottom lines of text are both 
hard up against the edge of the image, so that the size of the image is not 
equal to n* the line height, as I need. And without getTextExtent I can't 
see any simple method for finding the height of the line - and in other 
circumstances I might not even know how many lines there are, although of 
course if I know the lineHeight I can get this by 
ceil(textHeight/lineHeight)


Thoughts welcome

well Richard as far as I know, the code involved in the flash site  
you've mentioned before is kind of regular code not too brainy, I  
guess your very brave challenge to faced into is the animations and  
the quality of the photos, and also the kind of design involved.

I hope to be helpful for you

Hello,

i always use textfield.autoSize, and it works fine.
But you have to be carefull, to set the correct styles to the textfield, 
before measuring.

 But unless I am totally wrong, AMFPHP wasn't out of beta 
 until recently.
 And it isn't officially supported by Adobe/MM, or if it is, 
 it wasn't until recently. CF is.

Macromedia doesn't support free technologies that are in direct
competition with their technologies.  Why would they?  If you only used
Macromedia supported technologies, you would have paid gobs of cash
(tens of thousands of dollars) for Generator instead of using the free
alternative, JGenerator, which, by the way, had more features than MM's
version.  

MM didn't much care for the fact that nobody was buying their overpriced
technology anymore, so when they moved from Flash 5 to Flash MX, they
removed the ability to make Generator Templates, effectively ending
support for it.  This was a big f**k you! to the development community
who had been building Jgenerator based sites for their clients, but
couldn't offer the improvements in Flash MX and beyond to them because
Macromedia decided to attack their own consumers.

ColdFusion is a way for inexperienced coders to code middleware.  CF is
nowhere near as good as .NET, PHP, Java or Ruby.  If you know how to
code, don't waste your time with CF and dive right in to one of the far
better middleware solutions (Ruby on Rails anyone?).

AMFPHP has worked great for years, for free.  Beta or not, it's a solid,
reliable, free solution that many companies have used in production on
projects large and small.  I could care less if MM approves or not.  :)

Macromedia doesn't support free technologies that are in direct

I always wondered why MM support PHP in Dreamweaver but refuse to do so for
Flash with a PHP remoting.
You can build a fully blown database driven site in Dreamweaver (allbeit not
perfect code) using their PHP/MySQL support without writing a line of code
and without paying for a CF server, .Net server, etc.

I can't speak for Ruby, but unfortunately I've found CF is a much harder
sell over .NET only because of the cost, whereas a lot of enterprises
already have the infrastructure set up to handle .NET applications so
they've essentially already paid for it.  Plus, cost aside, convincing
the IT guys to install CF can be difficult, especially since .NET is
already there and they aren't up to speed on the security side of CF.  I
took a CF class from you Dave, great class, great teacher :), but I've
been disappointed I haven't been able to sell any clients on CF yet.

[Flashcoders] Alternate row color (Modulo Operator)

2006-06-22 Thread Sajid Saiyed

Hi,
I have a question about using Modulo Operator.

I can easily do an Odd / Even using

i%2 !=0

Where i can be any supllied number.

My question is, I have a list of movieclips (arranged one below another).
I want to use 4 different colours to differentiate them.

So, list items 1, 5, 9, ... will have Color-1.

RE: [Flashcoders] Best Flash data access way opinions

2006-06-22 Thread Dave Watts
 I can't speak for Ruby, but unfortunately I've found CF is a 
 much harder sell over .NET only because of the cost, whereas 
 a lot of enterprises already have the infrastructure set up 
 to handle .NET applications so they've essentially already 
 paid for it.  Plus, cost aside, convincing the IT guys to 
 install CF can be difficult, especially since .NET is already 
 there and they aren't up to speed on the security side of CF. 
 
I think that Java is much more common than .NET in most enterprise systems,
and since CF is just a J2EE application now, that makes it an easier sell
than it used to be. You can write a CF application, create an EAR file
containing CF and your application, and give it to your J2EE server
administrator and say deploy this, and they can do it without knowing
thing one about CF.

Re: [Flashcoders] Best Flash data access way opinions

2006-06-22 Thread Weyert de Boer
It's even hard to convince my dad to install Ruby on our webservers. 
Don't that I really /care/ about Ruby either,I don't really like the 
syntax of it. I would prefer Python over Ruby for sure. But I would use 
.NET anytime where possible. The problem I mainly have with CF is that 
it needs a J2EE server like JRun to make it work. Why would I use CF 
when we can use Java or Chrome.

I thought Bank of America was a flagship CF environment!

Bank of America has over 172,000 employees - so you can imagine we have
more than one server and more than one server admin. :)  I haven't heard
CF mentioned once, but I've only been here 2 months.  You sent those
Adobe links - that doesn't necessarily mean we are a CF Flagship it
just means somewhere in the company they are using it and Adobe got wind
and worked on some marketing with us.  Large companies use a LOT of
different technologies as you can imagine.

RE: [Flashcoders] getTextExtent weirdness

2006-06-22 Thread Ville Walveranta

I was recently working on a project where .getTextExtent() would have come
handy, but like for others, it did not work for me. I dropped the issue at
that time, but have been thinking of trying to create an auto-size field off
the stage with the same text style parameters as the textInput component,
then copy characters (from the input component as they're typed) to the
auto-sized field, then measure the width of the auto-sized field. If the
width exceeds the maximum allowed pixel-width, then disallow further typing
into the component. I think it should work... has anyone tried this?

What problem are you having with connections over SSL?
I've used it many times, (for loadvars, for loadmovie, etc), and never had
to do anything extra, it just works.

You might have some trouble, if you load some files from http:// and some
files from https://, there are a bunch of security restrictions built into
the flash player. Easiest way is to just load everything from the same place
(including the initial swf file). If you can't do that for whatever reason,
read the help docs on what exactly the security restrictions are, and how to
work with them.

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

 There seems to be a lack of good component

The XP components look very comprehensive, 
and have good keyboard control. But they don't 
seem to be under active development. 
The lead developer has responded to my initial questions,

but seems to be in a far east timezone so responses
take full day to get. The documenation is detailed, 
but there is so much stuff in the  XP components
that the documenation would have to be massive 
to cover it all. I haven't spent too much time with them,

but haven't been able to get a lot done in the time

getItem(i).color = ITEM_COLORS[i % ITEM_COLORS.length];
}
}

Note that in this scheme the index number starts at 0, not 1. That's a
better practice in general.

Subject: [Flashcoders] Alternate row color (Modulo Operator)

Hi,
I have a question about using Modulo Operator.

I can easily do an Odd / Even using

i%2 !=0

Where i can be any supllied number.

My question is, I have a list of movieclips (arranged one below
another).
I want to use 4 different colours to differentiate them.

So, list items 1, 5, 9, ... will have Color-1.
items 2, 6, 10, ... will have another Color-2.
items 3, 7, 11, ... will have third Colou-3.
items 4, 8, 12, ... will have fourth Color-4.

And so on Can someone point me to the right direction as to how I
should use the moludo?

Wether modulo operator is the right way to do this?

Thanks

Re: [Flashcoders] XMLSocket: load policy file and connect to port 80

2006-06-22 Thread Jobe Makar

Hi Michael,

I have experience with this. Below I show you how to test via telnet.

It looks like you aren't serving up the policy file. You can test this via 
telnet. For instance, on Windows:

1) Click Start  Run , enter 'cmd' and hit ENTER
2) type the following and hit ENTER
telnet 213.32.122.227 80

If it worked you should see the policy file in the console. When I tried it 
I did not see your policy file.


Here is an example of ElectroServer serving up a policy file (run this 
line):

telnet electro-server.com 9875

You'll see that it spits out the policy file into the console.

Hi,

we have socket server running port 80, I need get a policy file through:
System.security.loadPolicyFile(xmlsocket://213.32.122.227:80);

The following class does work offline, but not online. How am I
supposed to debug this, as the System method to load the policy file
has no callback.

Has anyone experience with loading a policy file from and connecting to 
port 80?

[Flashcoders] Export frame option disabled

2006-06-22 Thread Mike Boutin

Hey everyone,

Im creating a preloader and I notice that it doesnt start until about 
90% done loading the file.  I believe this is because my ui components 
are exported to the first frame.  I tried unchecking export to first 
frame with no difference.  I also tried changing the actionscript 
setting to export it to frame 2 rather than 1, but it is unavailable to 
change (the field is disabled).  Am I missing something here? ;) Thanks!

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

2006-06-22 Thread matt stuehler

All,

I don't know if anyone's following this thread or would find this
useful, but thanks to the pointers I received from Jim, I've been able
to cobble together a few PHP scripts that do what I need them to.  If
anyone wants to see them, send me an email to let me know. I can't
promise that they're the most elegant or robust, but they do the job.

Cheers,
Matt

 However, with most of our work, we develop an RIA for a client, who

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


There are open source implementations of AMF in .NET, Java, and PHP,
as well as closed source versions for multiple platforms, so
compatibility shouldn't be too much of a concern.

For more information look here:
http://www.osflash.org/amf

You can also add Red5 to the list presented there.

I hope that helps.

RE: [Flashcoders] webservice - https and flash

2006-06-22 Thread Tom Lee
I share the opinion that it's best to test web service connectivity outside
the IDE.  HTTPS problems are also one of the reasons why I don't use the Web
Service components that ship with Flash.  The safest bet is to do your
testing from a development server in the same network environment as your
production server.  That will save you from any surprises down the road.
However, I've also had good luck testing locally, just in my web browser
instead of the Flash IDE.

 What problem are you having with connections over SSL?
 I've used it many times, (for loadvars, for loadmovie, etc), and never had

the flash part resits outside of https.
 You might have some trouble, if you load some files from http:// and some
 files from https://, there are a bunch of security restrictions built into
 the flash player. Easiest way is to just load everything from the same
place
 (including the initial swf file). If you can't do that for whatever
reason,
 read the help docs on what exactly the security restrictions are, and how
to
 work with them.
 

would crossdomain.xml help here ? i'm not sure.

Are you basing the percentage on the frames loaded (100 * _framesloaded
/ _totalframes) or bytes loaded (100 * getBytesLoaded() /
getBytesTotal())? You should be doing the latter. If you are then ... um

Re: [Flashcoders] Muting a flash video stream

2006-06-22 Thread Josh Santangelo

This is in the initial setup of a video player I've made:

__video = __videoHolder.__video;
__nc = new NetConnection();
__nc.connect(null);
__ns = new NetStream(__nc);
__video.attachVideo(__ns);
__videoHolder.attachAudio(__ns);
__volumeControl = new Sound(__videoHolder);

__volumeControl.setVolume(0) will then mute the video.

Hi Guys,

doesnt work :(

 Any ideas ?
