[Flashcoders] AIR from Flash CS3 IDE...

2007-08-30 Thread eric e. dolecki
The ability to fire off an AIR application from a FLA quickly is very nice,
but I noticed something... nowhere are the dimensions of the thing set (that
I can see anyway).

So that means my app allowed to resize (don't like that), and because the
size isn't set, a comboBox set at the bottom edge of the app opens *down*
which means items are hidden.

I should dig some more about this, but for now its not allowing me to deploy
an AIR application that I would like to use myself.

Anyone have ideas about this?

Re: [Flashcoders] Why would this happen?

2007-08-30 Thread mario gonzalez
Well I'm calling getObjectsUnderPoint from the TileEngine. I could see 
if i was calling it from the parent, or the document class, because 
TileEngine would be a child of it.
However calling getObjectsUnderPoint, shouldn't return the calling 
object since that object is not a child of itself.


Anyone have any idea why this is?

[Flashcoders] FlashProxy on subDomain talking to SWF

2007-08-30 Thread eric e. dolecki
Some older code, trying to see what can be done (besides ExternalInterface):

1. FlashProxy (js) is on domain http://foo.com
2. SWF is on http://www.foo.com

HTML page cannot communicate with the SWF. Have tried allowDomain and policy
files to no avail. Can this not be done using the old FlashProxy across
domain/subdomain?

Would it be better to just upgrade things to use ExternalInterface?

danke,
eric

Re: [Flashcoders] Iterator question

2007-08-30 Thread Andy Herrman
Why not use a hashtable instead of an array?  Give your elements all
unique IDs (you could even just do an incrementing integer).  A
hashtable would give you faster lookup (don't have to iterate over the
array searching for it) and you can remove hashtable entries without
messing up any kind of ordering.

  Hello list,
 
  i have a page object that contains has a Array that holds
  pageElements. This is a storage for elements with an iPageElement
  interface.
  The page object has an destroy() method. When page.destroy() is
  called, it will loop trough the page.pageElements Array using an
  iterator. Every iPageElement broadcasts an onElementKilled message
  when is has been destroyed. When a pageElement broadcast this message,
  the page need to continue in deleting the next element in the
  page.pageElement Array.
  The callback method onElementKilled in the page instance, searches for
  the element that has been deleted and then removes it from the
  page.pageElements Array. This is where i think a problem rises,
  because if the page.pageElements array is updated during the process,
  the index does not match the element to remove anymore. How can I
  solve this potential risk?
 
  Another question, the array that is passes into the iterator is a
  reference to the pageElements Array. Does this mean, that if I delete
  an element from this array from within the iterator, the
  page.pageElements array is modified?
 
  I hope my question is clear..

[Flashcoders] How do you delete child movieclips?

2007-08-30 Thread Alexander Farber
Hello flash coders,

what is your usual method for deleting child movieclips
(which were previously attached by attachMovie)?

I suspect, that the method I'm using:

public function reset():Void {
for (var key:String in this)
if (typeof(this[key]) == 'movieclip')
this[key].removeMovieClip();
ntables = 0;
}

is no good because it runs through the list
and modifies it at the same time...

I'm asking because I get ghost movieclips
in my MC at http://preferans.de/flash/Ellipse.swf
and can't find the reason for that :-(

I haven't found a good test case either
(i.e. you want see the problem in the above .swf)

[Flashcoders] [OT] Obfuscating SWFs with Amayeta SWF Encrypt

2007-08-30 Thread Bob Schmitt
Hi all,

Not sure if this would be considered off topic or not, hope not. Doesn't
have anything to do with coding, but it does have something to do with code!

I'm wondering if anyone on the list uses Amayeta's SWF Encrypt to obfuscate
code in your SWF files. Recently, I noticed that with the latest version of
ActionScript Viewer (version 5.28) you can view the code of a previously
encrypted/obfuscated file. In fact, you can view the un-obfuscated code of a
file encrypted with the latest version of SWF Encrypt (4.0.4), basically
rendering it useless. Amayeta has told me that the issue is isolated to me
alone and that if it was a problem they would have heard about it from their
thousands of users (myself not included).

Anyway, I'm wondering if there are any other Amayeta SWF Encrypt users out
there and if you can view your files in ASV 5.28 and let me know if they
appear obfuscated or not.

Also, are there other programs out there that do this sort of obfuscation or
are there other recommended methods for obfuscating code?

Thanks!
Bob

I am loading images in into one of movieclip of main movieclips inside the
scroll content dynamically.

 

I am able to load the images into movieclip that create inside the
scrollpane content firsttime.but when on again refresh scrollpane content
and creating all movieclips and loading images into one of movieclip is not
showing up.

 

Can anybody have a solution for it or noticed such kind of behaviors of
scrollpane component?

[Flashcoders] bitmap import and loading efficiency

2007-08-30 Thread Eduardo Barbosa
Hi list!

(made a quick search in the archive as i guess this must be a
recurrent/basic question but found nothing. hope one of you won't mind
quickly helping me)

About loading external bitmaps: If I want to compose a lettering in flash
where each letter is a bitmap what would be more efficient strategy since
there are repeating letters:

a) load the same bitmap everytime?

b) load only unique bitmaps and then duplicate them using
duplicateMovieClip?

c) something it hasn't occurred to me?

Thank you for your time!

P.S. any more detailed info on how flash manages the memory on this case
will be very welcome.

Re: [Flashcoders] AS3 Events, Delegates and passing parameters

2007-08-30 Thread elibol
You can also use the Loader.name property to identify the image you're
loading.

To get a nicely encapsulated solution, you might want to consider
instantiating a new Loader object for each image. I would use weak
references (addEventListener(event, method, false, 0, true)). This way,
when the calling function is complete, there will be no references to the
Loader once the load method dispatches an event, and it will be marked for
garbage collection.

  Subject: [Flashcoders] AS3 Events, Delegates and passing parameters
 
 
  Hello everyone,
 
  I am just starting working with AS3 after many years working with AS1
 and
  AS2.
 
  I am trying to rebuild a Game/App development framework I had built in
  AS2 into AS3
  and I want to make sure I get it right from scratch.
 
  All these years I had been working with Delegates and specifically a
  custom Delegate class I had writen
  which allowed the user to pass extra parameters.
 
  Now for my new framework, I want to use the new extended event model of
  AS3, with addEventListener
  and subclassed Event objects. The problem is that I cannot find a
  solution that does not uses a Delegate object.
  I know that in AS3 callbacks are now executed with the proper scope, so
  this does not require a delegate as before,
  but I still haven't figured out how to pass parameters.
 
  Specifically, I cannot do this in situations like the following:
  Thank you,
 
  Dimitrios

hey Michael~

Things are good; hope all is well with you! The end code for this will be
in the C-like language that the Wiring microcontroller uses but I'm
modeling it in Flash because it's faster to rough out the code (compared to
compiling + downloading it to the board each time I want to run it) so I
can't use Flash specific stuff. (though I guess the Tween class is based on
the Penner easing stuff I am using).

Rich Shupe gave me a good push and I was able to get a workable routine
together. On another list someone suggested using a bezier curve to handle
the easing - and I think that has promise since I can control the easing
rate based on distance traveled more directly.

Re: [Flashcoders] HTML 4.0 parsing

2007-08-30 Thread Peter Hall
Unless it's an AIR app, you'll need to write a custom parser. HTML4 is
not necessarily even well-formed XML, so you'll be starting at the
basics...

If it's a browser-based application, you might be able to have the
HTML rendered in a hidden browser frame, and then use FABridge to
communicate with JavaScript to navigate the resulting DOM. I don't
think there are many other decent options.

[Flashcoders] AS3 / Accessing functions in a Loaded SWF

2007-08-30 Thread Eric Lee
Hey List,

 

I'm have a swf that contains several functions, and I'm loading it into
another swf like this:

 

var ldr:Loader = new Loader();
var url:String = content.swf;
var urlReq:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
ldr.load(urlReq);
addChild(ldr);

 

When it try to access a function by saying ldr.content.testFunction();,
it throws an error for the possibly undefined function. Same applies
when I'm trying to access variables within the loaded swf. 

 

Is there a way for me to gain access to functions/variables in the
loaded swf? Or is there a better strategy for me to organize my website
structure?

 

Thanks!

Re: [Flashcoders] flv playback speed control

2007-08-30 Thread sean
There is no built in functionality for this, however, you could use the
NetStream.seek() function and call that in an Interval. By changing the
interval call time and by changing the seek location integer from an
incremented one to a decremented one, you'll be able to speed up the play
back going forwards or backwards. This is effectively the method we use to
create a Fast Forward and Rewind function for video.

Hope that helps (and that I explained it clearly). If not, then let me
know and I'll clarify with some example code

Sean
www.flashcoder.net

 can flv's be slowed down and or sped up programmatically?

 any thoughts, directions or brain storms would be beneficial.

[Flashcoders] Live Preview communicating with Flash

2007-08-30 Thread Rob Romanek
I'm playing around with components some more in Flash and am trying to  
figure out a way for the live preview to get the file name of the  
currently active document in Flash. I was wondering if this might be  
doable using the ExternalInterface class. While I can get the live preview  
to tell be that an external interface is available I can't work out what  
functions I can call to the application hosting that live preview(i'm  
assuming that is Flash itself) and if there is a call that would return  
the file name of the current document.


Any thoughts? Is there an easier way to do this?

thanks,

You can parse it as an xml object, but other than that, I'm not sure what

[Flashcoders] timeline creating Tween objects from MCs

2007-08-30 Thread Jason Van Pelt


Hello all,

We're creating some rather complex timeline-based animations for a project
i'm working on and I have run into an odd problem. All of my assets are on
their own layer, and they are all movieclips. However, when tweening some
of the movieclips, Flash is creating Tween 1, Tween 2... graphics as if
they were not already symbols. It does not appear to be random, as it only
seems to happen with two of my elements -- but there is nothing different
about those elements from any other.

Has anyone else come across this, with Flash creating Tween symbols out of
elements that are _already_ symbols?

My only resolution is to go in and swap the Tween symbol back to the right
symbol, place it where it is supposed to go, and give it back it's correct
instance name on EVERY keyframe.

Please email me directly if you have any insights...  I get daily digests
from this list.

Thanks in advance,

Subject:[Flashcoders] AIR from Flash CS3 IDE...

The ability to fire off an AIR application from a FLA quickly is very nice,
but I noticed something... nowhere are the dimensions of the thing set (that
I can see anyway).

So that means my app allowed to resize (don't like that), and because the
size isn't set, a comboBox set at the bottom edge of the app opens *down*
which means items are hidden.

I should dig some more about this, but for now its not allowing me to deploy
an AIR application that I would like to use myself.

Anyone have ideas about this?

 Why not use a hashtable instead of an array?  Give your elements all
 unique IDs (you could even just do an incrementing integer).  A
 hashtable would give you faster lookup (don't have to iterate over the
 array searching for it) and you can remove hashtable entries without
 messing up any kind of ordering.

   i have a page object that contains has a Array that holds

   The page object has an destroy() method. When page.destroy() is

   The callback method onElementKilled in the page instance, searches for

swf of all sounds (the sound library) and i load this swf in the main swf of
my application... after when i want use a sound i call my sound in the
library of sounds.

To manage all this sounds i use a model in my opensource framework and an
easy MVC implementation :

1 - install my opensource project : http://code.google.com/p/vegas/

Tutorial to install it :
http://code.google.com/p/vegas/wiki/InstallVEGASwithSVN

2 - Test the example  in the svn directory :
http://svn1.cvsdude.com/osflash/vegas/AS2/trunk/bin/test/andromeda/media

3 - you can too test my opensource template based on VEGAS (AST'r) who use a
full implementation of my SoundLibrary model in a full MVC application :
http://code.google.com/p/astr

In AST'r you can find for the moment two AS2 templates :

3-1 The more easy template is the astro package :
http://astr.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/AS2/trunk/src/astro/
3-2 The more complete template is the eGallery example :
http://astr.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/AS2/trunk/examples/egallery/trunk/

EKA+ :)


2007/8/29, Shawn Steward [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 I have a project that has one main container SWF, that loads in multiple
 child SWFs to play.  If I try to have the child SWF's play a sound file
 using attachSound, it will not play the sound file unless I have it in
 the container SWF.  I have it in the child SWF set to export for AS in
 the 1st frame, but it will not play.  Is there another way to do this?
 I'm trying to keep the container SWF very small.  Thanks.

RE: [Flashcoders] Rotate, Scale and _x, _y

2007-08-30 Thread Jack Doyle
Not sure if it'll help, but check out
http://www.greensock.com/ActionScript/TransformManager. It'll let the user
scale, rotate, or move any MovieClip regardless of where its registration
point is. Again, this might not be exactly what you're looking for but you
could at least get some ideas from it.

Hello everybody.

I'm ending one small project that handle images and make possible to
do zoom, rotate (from 90 degrees to 90 degrees) and move this images
by dragdrop when images are bigger than screen.

I have a problem with rotate. Zooming is easy thus this doesn't change
my _x and _y, but yes my _width and _height. But everytime i rotate,
it changes my _x and _y and is a little confused to make operations
that i used to do like localToGlobal (to know center of screen respect
image and zoom from there), startDrag (to mark limits), and a much
more... there is anyway to rotate without changing _x and _y??? i
tried to copy image with bitmapData and apply a matrix with rotation,
but is the same situation...

I'm using this classes from Darron Schall:
http://www.darronschall.com/weblog/archives/54.cfm

It helps me to move my Dynamic Registration (center of movieclip) and
zoom or rotate from there but... _x (and _x2 in the case) also
change...

any help? thanks in advance...

Re: [Flashcoders] [OT] Obfuscating SWFs with Amayeta SWF Encrypt

2007-08-30 Thread Burak KALAYCI

Hi,

I would also be very interested if ASV 5.28 is NOT working for SWF Encrypt 
4.04, because it should.


We bypass obfuscations that our customers request (as much as possible), but

Subject: [Flashcoders] [OT] Obfuscating SWFs with Amayeta SWF Encrypt



Hi all,

Not sure if this would be considered off topic or not, hope not. Doesn't
have anything to do with coding, but it does have something to do with 
code!


I'm wondering if anyone on the list uses Amayeta's SWF Encrypt to 
obfuscate
code in your SWF files. Recently, I noticed that with the latest version 
of

ActionScript Viewer (version 5.28) you can view the code of a previously
encrypted/obfuscated file. In fact, you can view the un-obfuscated code of 
a

file encrypted with the latest version of SWF Encrypt (4.0.4), basically
rendering it useless. Amayeta has told me that the issue is isolated to me
alone and that if it was a problem they would have heard about it from 
their

thousands of users (myself not included).

Anyway, I'm wondering if there are any other Amayeta SWF Encrypt users out
there and if you can view your files in ASV 5.28 and let me know if they
appear obfuscated or not.

Also, are there other programs out there that do this sort of obfuscation 
or

are there other recommended methods for obfuscating code?

Thanks!
Bob

Re: [Flashcoders] How to get the MD5 hash value of a file

2007-08-30 Thread Jim Cheng

Paul Steven wrote:


Is there a built in function that will provide me with the MD5 value for a
file? I have seen some examples online that provide a MD5 value for a string
but I need it for a file.


Nothing built in, though if you can read the file into a ByteArray, it's 
fairly simple to modify one of the existing MD5 hash routines to take in 
a ByteArray instead.  For example, if you were using the open-source 
as3corelib project's MD5 class you can just change in the parameter type 
to a ByteArray, and then modify the createBlocks() method to do the same 
and read in the i'th byte rather than calling s.charCodeAt().


However, there's a big caveat--unless you're planning on doing this from 
an Adobe AIR (formerly Apollo) application or a third-party projector 
(e.g. Zinc, SWF Studio, SWHX and the like), you're probably out of luck.


As far as I know neither the standalone or plugin Flash Player, nor the 
standard web browsers allow programmatic access to client-side files 
scheduled for upload--typically, you'd need to have the user actually 
upload them and then round-trip the file back from the server to have 
access to the content. :(


You might be able to do it via an ActiveX control or a Java applet that 
has the appropriate permissions, though this may require an additional 
dialog requesting the user to grant escalated privileges.

[Flashcoders] Tween removal...

Has anyone had difficulty removing AS assigned tweens?  I have an  
issue that I can't seem to get rid of - and I've tried everything I

an array, and looping / deleting everything from the array doesn't

 The ability to fire off an AIR application from a FLA quickly is very
 nice,
 but I noticed something... nowhere are the dimensions of the thing set
 (that
 I can see anyway).

 So that means my app allowed to resize (don't like that), and because the
 size isn't set, a comboBox set at the bottom edge of the app opens *down*
 which means items are hidden.

 I should dig some more about this, but for now its not allowing me to
 deploy
 an AIR application that I would like to use myself.

 Anyone have ideas about this?

Why not use a hashtable instead of an array?  Give your elements all
unique IDs (you could even just do an incrementing integer).  A
hashtable would give you faster lookup (don't have to iterate over the
array searching for it) and you can remove hashtable entries without
messing up any kind of ordering.

Hello list,

i have a page object that contains has a Array that holds
pageElements. This is a storage for elements with an iPageElement
interface.
The page object has an destroy() method. When page.destroy() is
called, it will loop trough the page.pageElements Array using an
iterator. Every iPageElement broadcasts an onElementKilled message
when is has been destroyed. When a pageElement broadcast this message,
the page need to continue in deleting the next element in the
page.pageElement Array.
The callback method onElementKilled in the page instance, searches for
the element that has been deleted and then removes it from the
page.pageElements Array. This is where i think a problem rises,
because if the page.pageElements array is updated during the process,
the index does not match the element to remove anymore. How can I
solve this potential risk?

Another question, the array that is passes into the iterator is a
reference to the pageElements Array. Does this mean, that if I delete
an element from this array from within the iterator, the
page.pageElements array is modified?

I hope my question is clear..

thank you in advance.

[Flashcoders] Hand Cursor for Slider Component

For other components, setting buttonMode and/or useHandCursor to true

I was able to see a hand cursor if I set the mouseChildren to false,
but of course then I can't slide the thumb dragger.

Any ideas?
