Re: [Flashcoders] CS3: Test Movie vs. published swf (or, how to update test player?)

2008-07-21 Thread Benicio del Toro
Just one qiuick thing.
the only way to update the test player in Flash that I found is installing
latest Flash update. It helped in my case. Replacing files in Flash's
players directory doesn't affect the test player.

2008/7/21, peter ginsberg [EMAIL PROTECTED]:

 This isn't precisely related to AS3, but it's definitely something in my
 code in particular causing this issue.  I'm working on an application (a
 game) that contains some pretty complicated AS3 code.  It's a CS3 project,
 with a main .fla file and several sub .flas with their own classes.  I
 don't
 think the details are too important to my question, at least not right now.

 Here's what happened:
 -Publish the FLA into a SWF, open swf in standalone player or browser --
 works fine, good frame rate, etc.
 -Built the FLA using Test Movie, the swf is extremely slow to load, frame
 rate is terrible, and the application eventually crashes and brings flash
 CS3 down with it.

 I tried another system I had CS3 installed on and got a similar effect,
 only
 this time the game wouldn't even start.  It would choke on one of the
 loaded
 swfs.  On this system as well, hitting publish resulted in a perfectly
 swell
 working swf.

 I've noticed some differences in the past, but this is pretty over the top.

 My best theory so far is that this is a version problem.  On the first
 computer (winXP), I noticed the version of Flash Player installed as a
 standalone and browser plugin was 9,0,124,0 BUT the version in CS3 Test
 Movie was 9.0.45.0.  On the second computer (Vista64), also 9,0,124,0 in
 the
 browser, but the version CS3 Test Movie was 9.0.115.0.

 Operating on this theory, I grabbed the debug players from:
 http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html then removed flash
 player using the uninstall utility.  I installed the new debug players
 (including copying from the Debug folder of the download into my
 \Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\Players folder.  Rebooted.  I tried this process
 several times, but:
 trace(flash.system.Capabilities.version);
 Continues to report WIN 9,0,115,0 as the version when I test movie.

 So, my questions:
 1. How do I really update the player flash CS3 uses with test movie?
 2. Is there anything else different about the player used in test movie
 that
 I should be considering when figuring out the problem here?
 3. Assuming I have done something in my code that caused a bug which was
 fixed between flash player microversions, does anyone have any ideas where
 to start looking to pinpoint exactly what the root cause is?

 Apologies for the length of my question, I'm trying to anticipate what
 people will want to know.  Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a concept but not sure if it is possible in AS3 Flash  
Player 9. I have a client requesting - some feedback would be greatly  
appreciated. I'm looking into building a loop creator application.


I basically want to take preset loops and place them on a time track.  
The loops will be able to layer above each other. I then want to  
combine the entire track and export as an mp3, is this possible via  
byteArrays? If so, could I encode the byteArray to MP3 or do I need to  
use php or something similar.

Hi Anthony,
   Didn't I already reply to this?

   In any case - this version of the question is slightly expanded. :-)

   Yes, it's possible with ByteArrays, however there is no native MP3
encoding built into Flash Player, so writing code to join and then
export a bunch of MP3s together is tricky (and even if you port the
LAME encoder or something, I doubt the AS3 performance will be what
you want).

   I'd suggest doing the stitching together of the MP3 serverside -
there are plenty of serverside technologies that can handle it - and
simply use the Flash client to lay out a 'preview' version using
loops.

Ah, I know where the confusion came from, you said the code was based on

var test:XML = data...etc.

(it was based on my example, but he used test as an instance of the

name threw me, because it was mixed in with the regex method, re.test
- I never realized you meant test as the XML not test as some regex
method I wasn't aware of.  So when you wrote

var xmlListSearch:XMLList = 
test..*.(re[test](attribute(*)) || re[test](child(*)));

You meant

var xmlListSearch:XMLList =  theXML..*.(re[test](attribute(*)) ||

RE: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Merrill, Jason
OK, so this is almost there, but not quite.  If I do as Kenneth
suggested (and this should be able to be reproduced), 

var testXML:XML = data
topics
topic title=Coldplays New Album /
topic title=The Dark Knight /
topic title=Arrested Development: The
Movie /
/topics
/data;

var re:RegExp = new RegExp(^+searchInput.text);
var xmlListSearch:XMLList = testXML.topics.topic.(re[test](@title));
trace(result: +xmlListSearch.toXMLString());

(Assuming there is a TextInput text field on the stage and a function
run when a button is clicked to run the regex search), if I enter the
search term, The, it only returns the second node containing The Dark
Knight, not the third topic node, which has a The in it's title
attribute as well.  If I put Dark, it doesn't return anything.  So it
seems it's only searching nodes where the search term is the first item.
How can I modify the regular expression above to find all nodes
containing an element of the search term?

OK, so this is almost there, but not quite.  If I do as Kenneth
suggested (and this should be able to be reproduced), 

var testXML:XML = data
topics
topic title=Coldplays New Album /
topic title=The Dark Knight /
topic title=Arrested Development: The
Movie /
/topics
/data;

var re:RegExp = new RegExp(^+searchInput.text);
var xmlListSearch:XMLList = testXML.topics.topic.(re[test](@title));
trace(result: +xmlListSearch.toXMLString());

(Assuming there is a TextInput text field on the stage and a function
run when a button is clicked to run the regex search), if I enter the
search term, The, it only returns the second node containing The Dark
Knight, not the third topic node, which has a The in it's title
attribute as well.  If I put Dark, it doesn't return anything.  So it
seems it's only searching nodes where the search term is the first item.
How can I modify the regular expression above to find all nodes
containing an element of the search term?

var re:RegExp = new RegExp(searchInput.text, g)

Thanks - so it looks like I need the global flag, but how do I also pass
the i (ignore case) flag if the RegExp constructor only takes the two
arguments?

RE: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

OK, I'm like 95% there, but there is still some kind of bug - here is
how to reproduce:

var testXML:XML = data
 topics
   topic title=Coldplay's New Album, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His
Friends /
   topic title=The Dark Knight /
   topic title=Arrested Development, The Movie /

var re:RegExp = new RegExp(The, g,i);

var xmlListSearch:XMLList = testXML..*.topic.( re[test](
attribute(title)));

trace(result: +xmlListSearch.toString());


If you search for the word, the, as I do when I construct the regular
expression, you should get 5 nodes returned into the XMLList, but I only
get these four:

topic title=The Dark Knight/
topic title=Arrested Development, The Movie/
topic title=Band Of Horses: Everything All The Time/
topic title=Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World/

I don't get this node:

 topic title=The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog /

? Any idea why?  Does it fail if there is more than one the in the
string?

Re: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Wagner Amaral
Indeed, the g seems to make it not work. Not a big problem, since it's
useless in this case - the g flag in a test() call makes the search start
at a specified index (lastIndex property)
What may have confused you, Jason, is the example Robert posted fixed your
problem (by removing the ^ character from the regexp - the ^ when the
first character on a regexp means match at the start of the line), and
also added the g flag, which is not quite what you wanted. So just drop it
and it will work ;)

Side note: I really hate the re[test](...) kind of syntax, so here goes my
suggestion:
(re as RegExp).test(...)

  Hi,
 
  You could try to do your own bookkeeping, so you know what listeners are
  registered to an EventDispatcher object. You can have one class to hold
 that
  info in a list and write a method that loops through that list and
 remove
  all registered listeners. You'd still have to override the
 addEventListener
  and removeEventListener methods in the dispatcher object, to intercept
 those
  calls from external code and keep your bookkeeper in sync.
 
  Some code to illustrate it (keep mind that even though it compiles, this
  is untested and may be not the best idea).
 
  package
  {
   import flash.display.Sprite;

  useWeakReference:Boolean = false):void
{
 super.addEventListener(type, listener, useCapture, priority,
  useWeakReference);
 _evtBookKeeper.registerEventListener(type, listener, useCapture);
}
 
override public function removeEventListener(type:String,
  listener:Function, useCapture:Boolean = false):void
{
 super.removeEventListener(type, listener, useCapture);
 _evtBookKeeper.unregisterEventListener(type, listener, useCapture);
}
 
public function removeAllListeners():void {
 _evtBookKeeper.unregisterAndRemoveAll();

public function EventBookkeeper(dispatcher:IEventDispatcher) {
 _eventsList = [];

public function registerEventListener(type:String, listener:Function,
  useCapture:Boolean):void {

Re: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Kenneth Kawamoto
If I may repeat myself I don't think you need g (Global flag) for 
this. :)


The reason is, I quote from the doc, If the g (global) flag is set for 
the regular expression, then the search starts at the index position 
specified by the lastIndex property of the regular expression. If the 
search matches a substring, the lastIndex property changes to match the 
position of the end of the match. 


To prove this point, if I do something like:

//
var re:RegExp;

re = new RegExp(The, gi); // with global flag

for each(var prop1:XML in testXML.topics.topic){
   trace(re.lastIndex,  - , [EMAIL PROTECTED],  - , 
re[test]([EMAIL PROTECTED]));

}

trace(***);

re = new RegExp(The, i); // without global flag

for each(var prop2:XML in testXML.topics.topic){
   trace(re.lastIndex,  - , [EMAIL PROTECTED],  - , 
re[test]([EMAIL PROTECTED]));

}
//

I'd get:

0  -  Coldplay's New Album, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends  - 
 false

0  -  The Dark Knight  -  true
3  -  Arrested Development, The Movie  -  true
25  -  Band Of Horses: Everything All The Time  -  true
34  -  Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World  -  true
41  -  The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog  -  false
0  -  Violet Hill  -  false
***
0  -  Coldplay's New Album, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends  - 
 false

0  -  The Dark Knight  -  true
0  -  Arrested Development, The Movie  -  true
0  -  Band Of Horses: Everything All The Time  -  true
0  -  Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World  -  true
0  -  The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog  -  true
0  -  Violet Hill  -  false

With global flag RegExp will not find the in The Quick Brown Fox 
Jumped Over The Lazy Dog because it looks for the from the character 
41 onwards, namely Dog, which has no the.

[Flashcoders] [AS3] Font Sharing between SWFs

2008-07-21 Thread Helmut Granda
I am running into a small issue, everything is working correctly in my
application except for the Font sharing between SWFs. If I embed the font in
all the SWFs everything works as expected but of course this is not what I
need since it will add weight to other SWFs and defeat the purpose of using
a SWF as a library.

This seems to be similar to the AS2 issue where you had to embed the
components in all the child SWFs that needed the components when using it
accross files.

Here is some code:

var fontItem = Utils.getFontFromLibrary ( DATA.library,
FontFace );
trace(fontItem); // output : [class FontFace]

iFont = new fontItem() as Font ;
trace(iFont); // output : [object FontFace]

 later in the application:

   font.fontName // output : Frutiger 55 Roman

Any suggestions?

TIA..

Re: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Kenneth Kawamoto

I just run a quick and dirty test, and I think I can confirm that.

The following test for 10,000 times each:

testXML..*.( re[test](attribute(title)));
testXML..topic.( re[test](attribute(title)));
testXML.topics.topic.( re[test](attribute(title)));
testXML.topics.topic.( re[test](@title));
testXML.topics.topic.((re as RegExp).test(@title));

The result:

1114ms
1047ms
993ms
868ms
1087ms

So the wildcard * is indeed slower, which is logical. But also 
attribute() is slower than @, moreover (re as RegExp).test() is 
slower than re[test]() - well they are all logical too, you may say :)

Yes that's that :)

Anyway in your case you know the incoming XML schema so you 
shouldn't use wildcard * - I think wildcards have serious 
performance hits.


i.e. theXML.topics.topic. should be used rather than theXML..*.

testXML..topic.( re[test](attribute(title)));
testXML.topics.topic.( re[test](attribute(title)));
testXML.topics.topic.( re[test](@title));
testXML.topics.topic.((re as RegExp).test(@title));

The result:

1114ms
1047ms
993ms
868ms
1087ms

So the wildcard * is indeed slower, which is logical. But also 
attribute() is slower than @, moreover (re as RegExp).test() is 
slower than re[test]() - well they are all logical too, you may 
say :)

[Flashcoders] Re: [AS3] Font Sharing between SWFs

2008-07-21 Thread Helmut Granda
I figured out that I needed to register the font ...

Font.registerFont(Class)

and it all works as expected... interesting.

 I am running into a small issue, everything is working correctly in my
 application except for the Font sharing between SWFs. If I embed the font in
 all the SWFs everything works as expected but of course this is not what I
 need since it will add weight to other SWFs and defeat the purpose of using
 a SWF as a library.

 This seems to be similar to the AS2 issue where you had to embed the
 components in all the child SWFs that needed the components when using it
 accross files.

 Here is some code:

 var fontItem = Utils.getFontFromLibrary ( DATA.library,
 FontFace );
 trace(fontItem); // output : [class FontFace]

 iFont = new fontItem() as Font ;
 trace(iFont); // output : [object FontFace]

  later in the application:

font.fontName // output : Frutiger 55 Roman

 Any suggestions?

 TIA..

RE: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Merrill, Jason
I was told on Flexcoders that using @string instead of
attribute(string) can be problematic because an error will result if
the attribute is missing in the node of the XML.  Using attribute()
won't throw any errors if the attribute is missing in the XML node, and
in most cases (depending on what you're doing) is prefereable to @.

Thanks for showing these results.
I'm not missing the attribute method that much...and after 
this I don't feel any guilt for it. :)

RE: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Merrill, Jason
So in the following code, why doesn't it find the node containing The
Dark Knight?  Yet, if I switch out Dark in the RegExp argument for
The, it indeed finds all the nodes that have The in it.  If I again,
switch out the word, Violet, then nothing gets returned.  If I put
Of, then it returns the two nodes that contain Of.  The only logic I
have been able to find is that this only works if MORE THAN  ONE node
contains the search term.  Something to do with XMLList or the
regex.test method.  Ideas?

var re:RegExp = new RegExp(Dark, i);

var xmlListSearch:XMLList = testXML.topics.topic.(

trace(result: +xmlListSearch.toString());

Re: [Flashcoders] E4X filtering strange behaviour

2008-07-21 Thread Keith

Why not use toXMLString():
trace(result: +xmlListSearch.toXMLString());

When I add more than one node with Dark in the title attribute it 
finds it with toString().

I've always  used toXMLString() so I was unaware of this.
