Re: [Flashcoders] MultiLanguage

2008-01-24 Thread Dennis - I Sioux

We had some blocks aswell.. even after embedding the right sets..
Found out that some characters were missing.. even in arial.. for some 
countries..


We solved it by using a font program.. then you see  list of all the 
characters that are available(unicode wise) .. and you could 
copy-from-another-font or create the missing character..


Hope this helps..

With kind regards,

Dennis

It's essential that you use a Unicode font--I use Arial Unicode for Asian

languages, because it has all the languages I typically need. Embed the
font, of course.

Gotcha. This is fairly new to me so I've been reading as much as I can. I 
found that true type fonts, like regular Arial, adhere to Unicode 
standards. In Flash, if I use Arial I can embed Korean (Hangul), and a few 
different Chinese glyphs. However, I cannot see the incoming UTF-8 encoded 
chinese text from my XML. Russian and all my other languages are working 
fine. But I get squares when trying to display Chinese or Korean, even 
though the glyphs are embedded for both. Hmmm... do I need a different 
font (Arial 'Unicode') or am I doing something wrong?


Thanks much.

[Flashcoders] AIR Sandbox while loading sounds

2008-01-24 Thread Sidney de Koning

Hi List,

I'm trying to load a sound stream into my air application, it is a radio 
stream bound to a port (ie: http://radio.example.com:8000/).
When publishing to flash 9, it works smooth as silk, but when publishing 
to AIR i get errors (I work work with the Flash IDE):


*** Security Sandbox Violation ***
SecurityDomain 'app:/soundRadio.swf' tried to access incompatible 
context 'http://adobe.com/apollo'


However everytime i load a stream it throws me a security error. How do 
i get past this, and make it work in a good manner?
And i have done all the usual stuff like, set up a crossdomain file, and 
i make use of the SoundLoaderContext.


Help is advised!

Cheers,

Sid

Ofcourse they changed it :)
Still does not work; this is inside my policy file:

site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies=all/
/cross-domain-policy

Cant find in the doc if i need to specify the port, since it is above 
1024? And does '|to-ports' |work on normal connections aswell as only 
XML Socket connection?


Been trying everything and notthing seems to work, is there anything 
specific to AIR and loading sounds?

RE: [Flashcoders] AIR Sandbox while loading sounds

2008-01-24 Thread Matthew James Poole
I think what it was basically saying is that same domain socket servers
need to have policy files now, where before they didn't. So really if
you have a policy file you should be ok. 

With the port nunber, what it was saying is that if you have a policy
file on a server that listens on ports above 1024 the policy file is
only valid for connections coming in to ports above that 1024. So in
this case connections made for that ports 1024 and below are no longer
considered secure. So this shouldn't effect you so long as you have a
policy file and you continue to make connections above port 1024 (I
assume you are only connecting to port 8080)

Regarding streaming audio, I'd have to have a test (which would be in
flex) so Im not sure I can help you - remind me to down load the CS3 Air
extention!

Is that radio URL availble to everyone? i.e. could I test (though it
would have to be at home - work are pretty strict about portts)

Cheers
Matt

Thanks much for the great advice. I'm getting there... However, soon as I 
include the Chinese glyphs my swf gets to near 5MB. Is there an easy way to 
embed only the chinese glyphs in a separate swf and load them only if 
needed? AS2...  With Cryllic, Hangul, and everything else I get a 
respectable 300K, but the chinese adds too much to just leave it in.

RE: [Flashcoders] AIR Sandbox while loading sounds

2008-01-24 Thread Matthew James Poole
Your policy file looks good, heres something you could try to see if
there is a problem with the policy file:

Find this file 'mm.cfg' here :

C:\Documents and Settings\{username}

And add to it these lines:

PolicyFileLog=1   # Enables policy file logging
PolicyFileLogAppend=1  # Optional; do not clear log at startup

Then when you test a swf have a look here:

C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash
Player\Logs

For a file called 'policyfiles.txt'. It logs info about policy files
that have been loaded, so that will confirm whether or not your file is
ok.

Check the viewed language and turn embedding on/off depending on whether
its chinese?

 - you'd only see the chinese if you had the right font installed (e.g.
simsun) but I believe this is the case on chinese machines. If course if
your text was masked or animated then this wont work as dynamic text has
to be embeded in these circumstances

One solution would be to avoid embeding the chinese fonts if you could

depends on what you want for your project

Except I am embedding, so I can anti-alias. I'm not sure how I could
embed all the other glyphs and have the chinese still render at all.

 You can use simsun ttf for rendering chinese glyfs

I think that is a standard font--it's installed on my Vista system--but it
doesn't have Hangul (Korean) characters.

We should probably be aware of the terminology we're using--glyph and
character aren't interchangeable. A character--take the Roman e for
example--can be written in many different ways and still be recognizable. A
particular rendering of that e in Arial, Simsun, Helvitica, Times New
Roman, etc., are glyphs.

So when we say simsun has Chinese glyphs, we are saying simsun has glyphs
for Chinese characters.

I double-checked, and Arial Unicode MS does have Korean characters. The
Arial installed on my system does not.

Cordially,

Kerry Thompson

 Thanks much for the great advice. I'm getting there... However, soon as I
 include the Chinese glyphs my swf gets to near 5MB. Is there an easy way
to
 embed only the chinese glyphs in a separate swf and load them only if
 needed? AS2...  With Cryllic, Hangul, and everything else I get a
 respectable 300K, but the chinese adds too much to just leave it in.

Ok, it's time to admit it--I speak Chinese (Mandarin).

Cyrillic and Hangul are phonetic character sets, and don't have that many
characters. Cyrillic is small enough to be a single-byte set, in fact, the
same as English. Hangul has more than 256 characters, but not nearly as many
as Chinese.

To be able to read a Chinese newspaper, you need to know about 2,500
characters (compared with 26 in English). A college-educated Chinese speaker
will probably know about 5,000 characters, and a scholar may know as many as
8,000-10,000. 

That's a lot of characters. Then you add in the fact that there are two
versions of Chinese characters (traditional and simplified), you have a lot
of characters.

Still, 5MB sounds like a lot. I think there are options for installing a
subset. In CS3 on Windows Vista, I see options for Level 1 (5609 glyphs) and
all (18,439 glyphs) for traditional Chinese. There are the same options for
simplified, with different numbers.

Can you get by with just the Level 1 characters? I'm guessing you probably
can. Those 5,000+ characters are probably enough, unless you're doing
something really specialized.

I'd think so, but it doesn't seem to be the case. In my interface for 
example,  I need to support Chinese simplified and traditional - and in my 
tests some characters are not appearing if I just choose the traditional 
level 1 support. So I need to include support for both which is like 18,000 
glyphs. For some reason traditional is 5609 glyphs and 'simplified' is 
13000+. Simple my ass.
Hmmm - a thought... maybe I can just do the 5609 and then add in missing 
characters as needed. So far, there only a couple that are not showing if I 
use only the level 1 support.

Yeah, I was surprised at the number of characters in the Level 1 Simplified.
There should be fewer--part of Mao's simplification was combining words that
were pronounced the same but had different characters in traditional
Chinese. For example, hou (4th tone) can mean empress or behind,
depending on the character. In traditional Chinese, there are two
characters, while simplified Chinese uses just one for both.

 Hmmm - a thought... maybe I can just do the 5609 and then add in missing
 characters as needed. So far, there only a couple that are not showing if
I
 use only the level 1 support.

I doubt that will work for simplified. Not only were characters combined, a
lot of characters were simplified to use fewer strokes. For example, my
Chinese name, Tan, is actually a combination of 3 characters (not unusual).
The one on the left, called the radical, is 2 strokes in simplified Chinese,
and 7 strokes in traditional. Other characters, like those for door and
country also use far fewer strokes in simplified Chinese.

So just using the traditional character set and filling in probably won't do
it for you. You'll probably end up displaying traditional characters
(actually called complicated-body characters in Chinese), which some people
in Singapore and mainland China won't be able to read.

It's not optimal, I know, and the file will be bigger than you want. Maybe
you could have them choose the language up front, then load a swf with just
the right character set embedded.

yep, you need some kind of scope declaration to tell you where the items
are. a lot of people use thisRoot = this; (or something that states the
location) and then all you have to do is pass 'thisRoot' around as a
reference to where that item is. That way you never have to say 'this' when
it's not actualy 'this'.
