Re: [Flashcoders] Creating a SWF to dynamically create SWF';s

2006-10-04 Thread Adrian Ionut Beschea
Do you really have to embed the images inside the swf ? Isn't any way you can 
load them dynamically ? 

Generating swfs at runtime on the client side, I don't think it's posible.
You can check out Php Turbine 
http://www.blue-pacific.com/products/phpturbine/default.htm With it you can 
generate swf through php on the server. It works great.

Re: class name conflicts bug [Was: [Flashcoders] (no subject)]

2006-10-04 Thread Stephen Downs
I know this is an old message and an old enemy, but I though I'd  
share a workaround that seems to do the trick.


When I get these errors (and I know my code is clean), I just delete  
my classpath settings (Preferences  ActionScript  ActionScript 2.0  
Settings) and click OK. Then I reset the settings back the way they  
were, click OK, check syntax again and the problem is gone. You might  
have to throw in a Delete ASO Files command as well.


I'm working with properly packaged reverse domain name as files (com/ 
myco/category/file.as), so that probably makes a difference as well.

Re: [Flashcoders] Projector Wrapper

2006-10-04 Thread Nicolas Cannasse
Would be interesting to compare with recently released Screenweaver HX
(http://haxe.org/swhx).
 
 
 ...says one of the authors of Screenweaver HX.  Being a shill doesn't
 work unless you use a different name.  ;)

Steven. You're posting your self-made comparison proclaiming mProjector
as the uber-wrapper. I don't see any moral problem at pointing you at a
new - completely rewritten from scratch - version of ScreenWeaver so
that you can compare it as well.

Now I could come with my own comparison or selling points, but I guess
that would not be seen as something fair, so it's better to give links
to people so they can start making their own opinion. Depending on the
features needed by the end-user, there might not be one single
kill-them-all choice.

If you want to be impartial and be able to efficiently advise people
about projector wrappers, you should stop throwing random facts without
evaluating first other technologies. I'm in general quite reluctant to
listen to people calling crap! before they even had a look at a given
solution.

Finally, I've been working with Edwin on SWHX and while I can't say
about previous Screenweaver, I can ensure you about the code quality of
SWHX. And you know what ? You can check it by yourself by browsing
https://svn.motion-twin.com/haxeDesktop/swhx.
If you find any bug, please report it to us ;)

RE: [Flashcoders] Creating a SWF to dynamically create SWF';s

2006-10-04 Thread Harald Kobler
Hi Don,

We have a product called Snapp MX that you can use to create Flash screens
that are stored as XML.  A Flash Runtime reads this XML and displays the
fully formatted screen to the end user.  No Actionscript coding is required.

Snapp MX is completely written in Flash on the presentation tier (including
the development environment).  To make life easy it also has a built-in Web
Service code generator that will create fully documented Java, C#, VB.NET or
ColdFusion code (PHP will be supported shortly).  The best part is that
there is a freeware version called Snapp MX Express.

I hope this helps.

Re: [Flashcoders] HTTP Statuscode 206 Partial content

2006-10-04 Thread Ron Wheeler
Given that you have 1 server, one communication line and http server 
knows all of this, there is not much point in trying to get 100 things 
happening at once. The http server may be the source of your problem 
since it may have some settings to limit the number of simultaneous 
requests from broken or malicious clients to prevent DOS attacks.
The Flash player's http layer may also be unhappy with so many 
simultaneous connections.


With today's technology, the communication link should be the bottleneck 
and trying to ram more bits down the internet link by having lots of 
contention will not get you very much.


Read them one at a time.

HTTP 206 Partial Content and LoadMovie

This is a nasty bug, and a little arcane, but  I'd greatly appreciate 
any

help.

I have a flash application (created in Flash MX 2004, Actionscript 2.0,
saved as flash 6) which is loading a number of swfs (100 or so).  The 
SWFs

make up some character animations, and we kick many of them off
simultaneously. We then have a loader that flips through them 
checking if

they are loaded, and once they are all loaded, starts the application.

99.9% of the time it works fine, but every so often it hangs on the load
screen and never leaves.

I've only been able to confirm this happening in firefox, but one of our
testers claims it happened in IE as well.

I finally got some hard evidence was going on by looking at the headers
(courtesy of the cool livehttpheaders firefox extension).

An example is pasted in below (scroll to bottom), here's the order of
events:
-Flash app loads objects.swfs a couple times
-First GET request is met with a happy HTTP/1.x 200 OK
-Second GET request is met with not so happy HTTP/1.x 206 Partial 
Content


And that's it, stuff pretty much just stops after that, movie never 
finishes

loading, so presumably objects.swf is never really complete.

My theory is flash is part of the way through getting the first 
objects.swf
when it requests the second one, which results in turn in a PARTIAL 
CONTENT

request, which for some reason isn't working as advertised in this
situation.

QUESTIONS:
1. Is my theory right? If not, any other ideas?

2. I can think of two possible fixes:
-Switch to flash 7, use the MovieLoaderClass and use the onLoadError to
trigger an attempted reload of the swfs.  This would suck because the 
app is

working fine in flash 6 now otherwise.
-Tack ?foo= + Math.random() on the end of every swf load, so we get no
caching. Downside is we get no caching, and we are loading a lot of swfs
repeatedly.
Anyone got any other bright ideas?

I'd GREATLY appreciate any help or advice!

_peter

206 Partial Content should mean either the file can not be completely
downloaded because it is still being uploaded or the web server or file
system is being overloaded and does not have the resources to access the
entire file. Hows the server load? What do the web server error logs 
say?

Are you using a PHP script to serve the file (I noticed the PHPSESSID)?
If so is it getting overloaded or not handling file locks properly?

I know this all sounds like stuff that should effect all browsers but
sometimes it's just timing and also how different browsers handle
different situations and errors.

ImpTech - Web Design  Hosting







I have found the same problem getting HTTP statuscode 206 Partial

[Flashcoders] printing in higher resolution than 72dpi with printAsBitmap

2006-10-04 Thread Tom Versweyveld
Is it at all possible to print a movieclip (wich has alpha and mask effects,
so printAsBitmap is needed), on a higher resolution than 72dpi. 

By this I mean, when the movieclip contains a  1000x1000px jpg, which is
scaled to 100x100px, how can the jpg be printed to its full potential of
1000x1000px, and not be printed as 100x100px mosaic.

 

Anybody got any experience with this.?

I don't see how a generated SWF is going to be much smaller than the

As long as the files can load incrementally I don't see that the 6MB is 
too huge a problem; if you try to load it all in one go it would be, but 
if a reasonably sized XML is read in and then your images are read as 
needed it shouldn't be too much of a problem.


You could also look into some of the wrappers for actionscript draw 
commands - if some of the images are mostly shapes and text then maybe 
they could be represented as xml and drawn at run time (or loaded a

[Flashcoders] Date Format Time Zone Issues

2006-10-04 Thread Kevin Bachman
I hope someone here has run into this strange problem I am having. Using
a remoting call to a ColdFusion web service, I am returning a recordset
from my SQL database for use in my Flash application. One field in the
recordset is a datetime field type returning a date in the format
'2006-10-04 00:00:00.0' as an example. In my actionscript, I am parsing
this value to format it for display:

 

Var datestring = dayArray[result.items[i][date].getDay()] +   + 

monthArray[result.items[i][ date].getMonth()] +   + 

result.items[i][ date].getDate() + , +   + 

result.items[i][ date].getFullYear()

 

Where dayArray and monthArray are predefined

 

This displays perfectly as 'Wednesday October 4, 2006'. However, we and
our web and database server are on the east coast and we have recently
found that users with computers set to Pacific Time are getting the date
displayed 1 day earlier, 'Tuesday October 3, 2006'. I have replicated
this by setting the timezone on my own computer to Pacific Time. I have
also checked and double checked the web service return before it gets to
the Flash application and it is definitely returning the correct dates.
There should not be any time zone handling using these functions a it is
just a simple value coming directly from the database field. Has anyone
run into a date problem such as this? I am at a loss. 

 

Thanks in advance!!

RE: [Flashcoders] VitalStream Bandwidth detection

2006-10-04 Thread Rob Bayne
looks like bwcheck to me. i'd just use p_bw in a condition where p_bw is 
detected bandwidth.

if p_bw is less than than x play stream1, else if p_bw is greater than x and 
less than y play stream2, else play stream3. 
ie. stream1=56kbps; stream2=150kbps; stream3=300kbps;

i usually run the bwcheck on an interval several times and get an average bw 
figure to go by and even dynamically change streams-- you can do it seemlessly 
by bookmarking ns.time and seeking to it once new stream has loaded.

Subject: [Flashcoders] VitalStream Bandwidth detection


Does anybody have code to detect users bandwidth on VitalStream? I'm using
the custom player source provided by vitalstream but it only works with
single bitrate streams. When I try to use a multi bitrate stream as the
sname parameter in the m_XMLURI string the player fails. Looking through the
source code I found some clues as to why it is not working, but don't have a
lot of time to debug the code and find the solution. I've been working with
VitalStream support on this and they are no help at all. They sent me links
to an irrelevent adobe tutorial as their solution.

Here is a fragment of code from that player that hints about bandwith
detection but also says it is not used?!!?

[code]
//the server calls this object to continue (auto bandwidth detection is
complete)
this[nc+i].onBWDone = function(p_bw) {
trace(onBWDone: +p_bw);
//we pass the successful netConnection and the
calculated bandwidth speed to
// the onconnected function to continue
this.mc.onConnected(this, p_bw);
};
m_payload = 0;
//this function is not currently used; it is for checking
bandwidth speed
// initiated by the server
this[nc+i].onBWCheck = function() {
trace(onBWCheck returning:
+(this.mc.m_payload+1));
return ++this.mc.m_payload;
};
[/code]

So my question is: Does anybody have a working (multi-bitrate streams)
example of a video player for the VitalStream content delivery system? They
have players that work with multi-bitrate streams in .swf format but do not
release the flv source for those players. 

Any help would be appreciated. A working .fla example would be priceless!

Thanks,
Brian

[Flashcoders] Direct ODBC connectivity?

2006-10-04 Thread Doug Coning
Does anyone know of a flash component that allows direct connectivity
between flash and an ODBC source?  Is this an impossibility?  I know
that I could probably write a web service to pull the data, but wanted
to see if there was a component that allows me to point to any odbc data
source and then pass in the sql query?  I imagine this is not possible,
but thought I'd ask before ruling it out.

[Flashcoders] Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Jason C Reynolds
Hi, having some math problems... hoping someone can help

Lets say I have a rectangle (height  width). I need to know the bottom middle 
point. That would be point(clipWidth / 2, clipHeight).
But I am having a hard time keeping track of this point after I rotate that 
clip. If I rotate the clip 40 degrees (clip._rotation = -40), where on the 
stage is that bottom middle point now?

I have searched the forums, and came up with alot of finding the angles, but 
all seem to assume I know 2 points.
Closest I've gotten is using:
x=ClipWidth / 2 + Math.cos(angle)
y=ClipWidth / 2 - Math.sin(angle)

Sorry, I'm s rusty with math and hoping someone can push me in the right 
direction. Right now I'm trying to figure out the radius of the 'circle' that 
is formed while rotating, but that isn't going anywhere (fast anway).

Thanks for any tips,
Jason

RE: [Flashcoders] Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Steven Sacks | BLITZ
The _width and _height change based on the rotation so don't use the
stored _width and _height and instead use the current _width and
_height.

That is, unless you're trying to keep track of that exact point on the
rectangle after you rotate it, then that's something more complex.

Re: [Flashcoders] Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Mark Winterhalder

Lets say I have a rectangle (height  width). I need to know the bottom middle 
point. That would be point(clipWidth / 2, clipHeight).


So we'll say:
var x = clipWidth / 2;
var y = clipHeight;


Closest I've gotten is using:
x=ClipWidth / 2 + Math.cos(angle)
y=ClipWidth / 2 - Math.sin(angle)


That's pretty close already -- it's what you would use to draw a
circle (by iterating the angle and connecting the resulting dots).

What you need is those two values:
var cos = Math.cos( angle );
var sin = Math.sin( angle );

Then do the following with x and y from above (your vector for the
rotation matrix):
var rotX = cos * x - sin * y;
var rotY = sin * x + cos * y;

rotX and rotY are your coordinates (relative to the rectangle clip's
position on its parent clip).

One more thing:
_rotation is stored as one byte, so it's rounded to 360 / 255. That's
something you will have to take in account for the angle if you want
to be exact, easiest would be to read the angle from the _rotation
property after you've changed that.

HTH,
Mark

Re: [Flashcoders] Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Zeh Fernando
orry, I'm s rusty with math and hoping someone can push me in the 
right

direction. Right now I'm trying to figure out the radius of the 'circle'
that is formed while rotating, but that isn't going anywhere (fast anway).


Just to kinda repeat what everybody has said -- 

You could easily find the angle of that point, rotate it a few more degrees, 
find the right X/Y and be done with it. Using flash.geom.Point would make it 
a snap.


However, when rotating movieclips, there's the problem of precision like 
Mark said. Sometimes this won't matter, and sometimes this will be utterly 
important. I had a lot of issues with that on agenciatudo.com: the movement 
is done based on a given destination point and was snapping too much) 
until I realized the rotation's degree of precision was messing with my 
camera angles (which were 'correctly' set based on another of the image's 
axis. Since the image is pretty big (3000x1600) it was pretty messy.


Because of this, your *best* choice is to make a new point using the 
coordinates of your movieclip, doing a localToGlobal on it from the original 
movieclip, then a globalToLocal on whichever scope you wanted the 
coordinates to be. That's what I've done on my case and it worked perfectly. 
In your case, it'd be something like this:


 import flash.geom.Point;
 var p:Point = new Point(clipWidth / 2, clipHeight);
 this.myMC.localToGlobal(p);
 this.globalToLocal(p);

Then p.x and p.y will have the new coordinates.

Really, localToGlobal/globalToLocal saves *a lot* of time and avoids a lot 
of headache.

A trusted fullscreen site settings panel will help, I think.

If you hit ALT+TAB the SWF restore the state to NORMAL_MODE

Well, this is a huge can of worms.

Thankfully, there's this:

-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-

End-user security was a key consideration in the implementation of this 
feature, and developers need to understand the following end-user, 
security-related restrictions and design content accordingly:
 a.. To enable full-screen mode, developers must add a new object and 
embed tag parameter, allowFullScreen, to their HTML. This parameter 
defaults to false, or not allowing full screen. To allow full-screen, 
developers must set allowFullScreen to true in their object/embed tags.
 b.. An overlay dialog box will appear when the movie enters full-screen 
mode, instructing the user how to exit and return to normal mode. The dialog 
box appears for a few seconds and then fades out.
 c.. The ActionScript that initiates full-screen mode can be called only in 
response to a mouse click or keypress. If it is called in other situations, 
it will be ignored (in ActionScript 2.0) or throw an exception (in 
ActionScript 3.0).
 d.. Users cannot enter text in text input fields while in full-screen 
mode. All keyboard input and key-related ActionScript is disabled while in 
full-screen mode, with the exception of the keyboard shortcuts that take the 
viewer out of full-screen mode.

-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-

Pretty cool, I just find it weird that the user can't input text while in 
full screen mode. Probably to avoid browser hijackers, but still wack.

Re: [Flashcoders] Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Michael Bedar
if you are trying to find the midpoint of the bottom, you could use  
the midpoint formula instead of using the rotation.. would be faster..

rotate that clip. If I rotate the clip 40 degrees (clip._rotation =

I have searched the forums, and came up with alot of finding the  
angles, but all seem to assume I know 2 points.

Closest I've gotten is using:
x=ClipWidth / 2 + Math.cos(angle)
y=ClipWidth / 2 - Math.sin(angle)

Sorry, I'm s rusty with math and hoping someone can push me in  
the right direction. Right now I'm trying to figure out the radius  
of the 'circle' that is formed while rotating, but that isn't going  
anywhere (fast anway).


Thanks for any tips,
Jason

[Flashcoders] RE: Find point after rotation

2006-10-04 Thread Jack Doyle
Pick up a copy of Foundation ActionScript Animation: Making Things Move!
by Keith Peters. Best $26.39 (at Amazon.com) you'll ever spend. The answer
to your question (and a bunch more you never knew you had) is in that book.
