[Flashcoders] File browse and Mac filetype

2009-04-15 Thread Romuald Quantin

Hi,

I'm facing a really annoying problem on Mac Leopard 10.5.6.

I built an app with AIR and it requires that I select the path of an 
existing application, let's say Flash.


To select the path, I wanted to select the application use a 
file.browse(). It works well on Windows but on Mac the Adobe Flash 
CS4.appremains grey and disabled, making me unable to select it to 
validate my path.


I tried to change filters and the macType property of the FileFilter but 
nothing works, I'm just not able to select an app file...


Is there anything I can do? Any hint?

Re: [Flashcoders] Favorite Flex book?

2009-04-15 Thread Paul Andrews
I think one of the things that will determine whether you like Flex training 
from the source, is whether you want a book you can just read and later pick 
up and thumb through a section. Flex training from the source is arranged 
more as a series of hands-on exercises where the reader is told how to 
follow through on a computer and any discussion is based on the practical 
work done. It's not so much a Pick me up and dip into me type of book 
because so much of the content is centred around actively sitting at a 
computer doing the exercises. It would make a poor reference but is strong 
at hands-on. Very much a doing book.

Re: [Flashcoders] How to smooth bitmap?

2009-04-15 Thread Pavel Repkin
Thanks, I've already written this code by myself.

Unfortunately, it does not work because of security issues.
You are not allowed to use BitmapData.draw to retrieve pixels containing
media from a domain other than your own.

  But, smoothing does not work for images loaded from external domains.
  MovieClip.forceSmoothing = true just does not work.
  However if the image resides on the same server as the script, smoothing

  Do you know how can I smooth the bitmap?
  Is it possible?

[Flashcoders] How much bytes ActionScript classes take in SWF?

2009-04-15 Thread Pavel Repkin
There are 500 KB of ActionScript code in our project (according to Flash
size-report)
That is a lot.
I want to find the classes (packages) that take most space.
And then to optimize them.
And throw away classes that were linked by a mistake.

So I want to find out how much space take individual classes and packages in
the swf.

Do you know a tool that can help me?
Ideally the app should display class tree with size in KB beside each node.

Hi,

   In your Publish Settings there is a generate size report option or 
something similar.  Tick the box and publish and it will create a text

[Flashcoders] Add Child Failing in wrapped .NET code in IE7 only

2009-04-15 Thread Gregory Boland
Dear List,

 I have a strange one here...

I am loading in external swfs and Bitmaps, and I am using them as a logo on
a button.  I put them inside a MovieClip from the library and linked to a
class that gives it button functionality.  Everything works fine before I
integrate it into another developer's .NET code.  As soon as I do, it works
everywhere else but IE7 on Windows.

I put debug text into the swf itself so i could see how the swf is reacting
in IE7.  I can tell you that the logos load and sort of appear.  They are
put behind other images on stage that load fine and there is no button swf
that they are supposed to be wrapped in.

Again this is only in IE7 AND only when placed in .NET code.

Here is an example of it working on my site..

http://www.gregoryboland.com/dev/topbutton/todaysale/index_3up.html

And here is the same code working in .NET environment

http://www.thetopsecret.com/TS/Protected/Sale/SaleHome.aspx?Type=FlashCorp=NEWDESIGN

urnme:gu...@topbutton.com urnme%3agu...@topbutton.com
pwd:guest

Has anyone ever experienced such a specific problem?  Does anyone think that
there is something wrong with the .NET code?

thanks for your help

What is  Main_Portfolio?  that seems to be different from Main or

In which case you're doing something wrong. :-)

That's definitely how it works in AS3 - I use it all the time.

To find the child of a DisplayObjectContainer (i.e. a Sprite or a
MovieClip) you use getChildByName(), pass in the instance name as set
in the timeline. That returns a DisplayObject. If it _doesn't_ return
a DisplayObject, you have no child object called that.

Then when you have retrieved the child as a DisplayObject, you can
manipulate it as required.

Are you sure you're on the right frame of Portfolio? Are you sure 'a1'
is the instance name on the timeline?

 portfolio.a1.x fails, even though there is a movieclip inside

 ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property a1 not found on Main_Portfolio and
 there is no default value. at Main()[D:\Flash\NewProject\Main.as:19]

 Any ideas?

Re: [Flashcoders] Access objects in embedded swf

2009-04-15 Thread Glen Pike

Hi,

This is a guess, but is it possible that the clip has not had chance to 
init? I don't know what happens when you instanciate a movieclip like 
this with children, but if you load a SWF you usually have to wait until 
the onLoadInit event is dispatched before you can access properties and 
methods on the movie - could be similar, but correct me if I am wrong.


If you only need to access the a1 element of the Portfolio SWF, you 
could export the library symbol with a LinkageID, republish the swf, 
then change the [Embed] to only embed the Library symbol - something like


[Embed(source = 'portfolio.swf', symbol=a1_symbol)]

In which case you're doing something wrong. :-)

That's definitely how it works in AS3 - I use it all the time.

To find the child of a DisplayObjectContainer (i.e. a Sprite or a
MovieClip) you use getChildByName(), pass in the instance name as set
in the timeline. That returns a DisplayObject. If it _doesn't_ return
a DisplayObject, you have no child object called that.

Then when you have retrieved the child as a DisplayObject, you can
manipulate it as required.

Are you sure you're on the right frame of Portfolio? Are you sure 'a1'
is the instance name on the timeline?

Re: [Flashcoders] How much bytes ActionScript classes take in SWF?

2009-04-15 Thread Juan Pablo Califano
If you have a document class in place, it should be easy to compile your
project with the flex SDK compiler. You could compile on the command line,
which is not too hard or try some IDE like Flashdevelop (if you're on
windows), where setting up a project is pretty stright forward.

The extra compiler argument you need is -link-report size-report.xml. This
will generate an xml detailed information about all compiled classes, theirs
dependencies, and the optimized and unoptimized size. You could then parse
this xml and create your own report as you like.

Cheers
Juan Pablo Califano


2009/4/15, Pavel Repkin pavel.rep...@gmail.com:

 There are 500 KB of ActionScript code in our project (according to Flash
 size-report)
 That is a lot.
 I want to find the classes (packages) that take most space.
 And then to optimize them.
 And throw away classes that were linked by a mistake.

 So I want to find out how much space take individual classes and packages
 in
 the swf.

 Do you know a tool that can help me?
 Ideally the app should display class tree with size in KB beside each node.

2009-04-15 Thread Juan Pablo Califano
PS: a couple of notes since my last message could be misleading:

1) By easy to compile I didn't mean that the result of using the SDK
compiler will produce the same swf. I just mean it could be a good way to
check what classes are included.

2) Any code in the fla will not be included, of course. If you create a ref
to some class only in timeline code, it will not be included in the swf
compiled with the sdk

[Flashcoders] FlashDevelop problem

2009-04-15 Thread Merrill, Jason
Sorry to ask the question here, I know there is a FlashDevelop forum,
but I need an answer quick, and they sometimes take 24 hours to respond
there.  I'm guessing someone here knows the answer.

Yesterday, I don't know what I did, but in my Flex 3 project I am
building, when I hit either F5 (test project) or F8 (build project),
instead of calling the Flex 3 mxmlc compiler and playing my Flex app in
an external player, it tries launching Flash CS3 instead.

I have verified this is setup as a Flex 3 project in FlashDevelop, even
created a new one with the same files, and checked the Flex SDK path.
Everything seems fine.  Anyone know how to fix this?  I'm about to do an
uninstall/re-install.  

Thanks.

Re: [Flashcoders] Favorite Flex book?

2009-04-15 Thread Dave Watts
 I understand what you mean, but I am using the stand alone.  If Flexbuilder 
 had been its
 own 100% Adobe-made application (meaning not coupled to Eclipse), having the 
 stand
 alone version of Flexbuilder, I could still download and run Eclipse 
 separately and use it for
 other things.

Oh, you can still do that if you want to. Our training rooms have both
installed - FlexBuilder standalone and Eclipse with the FlexBuilder
plugin. That does take extra disk space, though.

 And Adobe loses a lot of control over the UI by having it be integrated or as 
 a plug-in for
 Eclipse - or at least, they have not modified it to look like other Adobe 
 apps - it looks totally
 separate.

Yes. But I like this. And for what it's worth, there are other Adobe
apps built on Eclipse, like LiveCycle Workbench and the upcoming CF
editor Bolt. Adobe is definitely moving to Eclipse for programming
IDEs.

 Also, due to the nature of working for a huge company with lots of IT 
 security measures, we
 have to go through lengthy architecture reviews of software before it gets 
 installed.  Since
 Eclipse is basically an open-sourced application, and is always changing, it 
 makes it much
 harder to get through our approval process.

Just pick a version and stick with it. You don't have to upgrade
Eclipse. I don't think the version of Eclipse that's bundled with the
FlexBuilder install has changed.

Re: [Flashcoders] Favorite Flex book?

2009-04-15 Thread Dave Watts
 This pattern repeats itself to the end of the book.  It's a terrible way to
 teach something.  We'll teach you the wrong way, then we'll tell you it's
 the wrong way after you already learned the lesson.  Do they know nothing
 about the learning process?  Apparently so.

Actually, this approach is pretty common in all sorts of training
material. You learn the easy way first, then you learn the drawbacks
of the easy way, then you learn the right way.

If you just jump to the right way, students will discover the easy way
on their own after training, and just do that instead. Also, they'll
have to learn a bunch of concepts at once in class, rather than
learning them one at a time.

I know that in Flex classes, the biggest problem students generally
have is understanding why they should use custom events instead of
just binding to component properties. If you took that on all at once,
you'd lose a lot of people.

Re: [Flashcoders] How to test in Flash Player 6

2009-04-15 Thread Glen Pike

You can try Kewbee Plugin Switcher which is standalone.

It's a bit of a rigmarole setting up - you have to kill your browsers, 
run the Flash Player unininstaller and install one of the old players, 
then restart Kewbee  browser each time you want to add a new one, but 
once it's set up it runs nicely.  Only problem is switching browser 
plugin's requires a browser restart - to get round this use Task Manager 
to kill the firefox process then you can restore your session :)

Just pick a version and stick with it. You don't have to upgrade
Eclipse. 

Right, except in a case like this memory problem, you did say when we
were trying to troubleshoot my problems:

1. Use a different (newer) version of Eclipse.
2. Use a different JVM with Eclipse.

Another part of the problem, is that its open sourced (security risk,
unknown and unfamiliar vendors).  Also its essentially two applications
working together for a single user experience.  Trying to explain that
to the people doing the review and packaging was difficult to say the
least, especially when I didn't really understand how it works - we
eventually got it approved, but because of those two reasons, it took a
lot longer than if it was just say, Photoshop CS4. Plain and simple, it
would have made our lives a lot better if Adobe had developed 100% of
the application themselved and packaged it as a single piece of
software.  Also understanding how the two apps work together makes it
hard to troubleshoot problems.

OK, I don't know why I'm still defending myself and talking about it. :)
It was a royal pain, and despite your points, I still wish Adobe had
taken a different strategy.  Perhaps if I worked for a very small
company, I would feel differently.

itself has added new, useful features.

Open source is a security risk? Really? That's just a bizarre

If you were using the integrated install option, I don't know why
you'd have to bother telling them anything other than it's
FlexBuilder 3. From the end-user's perspective, when you install it
with the integrated installer, there's no clear separation between
FlexBuilder and Eclipse - you just run setup.exe and click next over
and over again just like any other Windows application, and all the
files get dumped in one directory.

I prefer installing FlexBuilder as an Eclipse plugin because I'm
already using Eclipse. But if that's not the case, you really don't
have to worry about it.

 OK, I don't know why I'm still defending myself and talking about it. :)

OK. I'm not much of an open source zealot, but the vast majority of
that is pure bunk.

First, there is no single open source community, just like there is
no single community that encompasses closed-source vendors. The
security practices of development groups vary from one group to the
next, just like the security practices of Microsoft and IBM are almost
certainly different. Most successful large open source projects don't
just let Joe Schmoe contribute. If you take a look at a lot of the
Apache projects, you can see that the developers are being subsidized
by companies like ... Adobe!

The primary salient difference between open source and closed source
is simply this - open source code can be reviewed. Closed source code
cannot.

And, you have to evaluate security concerns from the appropriate
perspective. Eclipse is, at its base, a text editor. The threat
profile for a text editor is very, very low. If you take a look at
your first link, you'll notice that the products in the study are all
application servers, which have a much higher threat profile.
Application servers, by their very nature, allow remote execution of
code, which is a very dangerous thing! Text editors, on the other
hand, can't do much except edit files. Adobe Acrobat is a much more
dangerous product to have installed. With the latest vulnerability
that was open for about a month and fixed a few weeks ago - one that
would allow a malformed PDF to gain control of the entire machine - I
sure hope you've patched that!

And as for that second link, I would recommend that you ignore it;
it's pure propaganda, bought and paid for by Microsoft.

http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=AdTI-Funding

They also work for Big Tobacco! It's a small world, I guess.

Finally, the problem of mixing open source with proprietary
solutions is becoming more common, so you will simply have to get used
to this - many proprietary software packages contain open source
components. For example, Adobe ColdFusion includes Apache Axis (among
many other things). One of the lead Axis developers was Tom Jordahl -
an Adobe employee. Adobe LiveCycle ES comes with JBoss and MySQL.

software is considered a higher security risk (though I still agree that
it is, based on the points I raised, but I also love the stuff, I use
FlashDevelop daily for example).  So reality is, it is perceived as a
higher security risk in our enterprise, and I cannot change that fact.
I have other issues with open source like the article mentioned, like
poor customer support and service plans, but that is another issue
altogether and unrelated to this discussion. Also, I used to work in DC
for a government contractor too, 5 years, worked with many agencies, and
I am familiar with how they work.

Yeah, I know should is different from is. But that's my point.
There are plenty of places which are equally concerned about security,

a misplaced sentiment.

 So reality is, it is perceived as a higher security risk in our enterprise,

I agree with this. My previous point was that this was a matter of
perception, not an actual statement about how the world works. The
secure computing community is all over open source, and that simply
wouldn't be the case if this perception were actually true.

 I have other issues with open source like the article mentioned, like
 poor customer support and service plans, but that is another issue
 altogether and unrelated to this discussion.

I think that's certainly a valid point generally, but you're right -
in this case it doesn't matter because Adobe supports FlexBuilder
directly.

 This is my last post on the subject, thanks,

Mine too, unless you have any specific configuration questions, I guess.

Check your Project Properties - on the Output tab, if the No output 
box is ticked, my Flex projects launch the IDE, but if I untick, they 
will run the compiler...

Re: FW: [Flashcoders] Favorite Flex book?

2009-04-15 Thread Glen Pike

Hi,


http://www.networkworld.com/news/2008/072108-open-source-security-risk.h
tml  -  and another take on the same article:
http://news.zdnet.com/2100-3513_22-123151.html  the first paragraph
reads, Open source software is a significant security risk for
corporations that use it because in many cases, the open source
community fails to adhere to minimal security best practices, according
a study released Monday.


   Just to add a couple of cents...

   I can see your point about security with the industry you work in, 
but if you look at the two articles you mention there are a few things 
you might want to take with a pinch of salt and read around further:
  
   The network world article highlights a survey done into 11 OS 
software packages, but they were all Java based and although I am not an 
OS / Java guru, I only recognise 2 of these.  I think a survey done into 
some of the larger widely used OS packages - e.g. some operating 
systems, web-servers, databases, etc. would have been more beneficial.  
It would also be interesting to see a comparison between similar closed 
and open source systems that provided statistics such as  the number of 
bugs / vulnerabilities found, time to fix bugs, number of lines of code, 
etc. - metrics.  My guess is that whether it's closed or open source, 
everyone will be frantically trying to fix the latest vulnerability and 
if my Windows update shield is anything to go by, it's not just OS 
that's affected...


   The zdnet article cites a paper written by ADTI, who are described 
in the article as a conservative organisation and are also cited for 
often criticising OS software and are believed to be in bed with all the 
major business - speculation possibly, but it's worth reading between 
the lines and don't believe slashdot over wikipedia over zdnet...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexis_de_Tocqueville_Institution
http://linux.slashdot.org/linux/05/03/25/238257.shtml?tid=166tid=106

   I guess the upshot is - software for any organisation needs to be 
evaluated effectively.  This can get more frustrating with larger 
organisations because like you mentioned, it is a PITA to get a new 
piece of software approved.  But with open source, the code is up for 
review, so I think it has an advantage there...


   At the end of the day, because it's open or closed, does not mean I 
trust it any more, but at least with open source, I know I can have a 
look at the stuff inside and probably fine tune it a lot more than 
closed and I think that's the attitude IT departments need to embrace a 
bit more - check the software out properly.  If departments did this, 
then maybe there would be a few more jobs going and possibly a little 
less money lost due to the wrong choices being made, but I am being 
optimistic here :)


   I do agree with the comment at the end of the zdnet article and I 
would sincerely hope that agencies responsible for my safety are making 
informed decisions about the software that protects us.  However after 
recent events in the financial and government sectors in UK  US, I am 
more concerned about the human capabilities, decision making and 
morality of many organisations who are trusted with our information, 
safety and money than the software running these places.  Most of the 
problems I have read about recently have seem to come about because of 
human error/incompetence rather than software bugs / security 
vulnerabilities...


   And yes decent customer support is hard to find, but that's not just 
restricted to OS software :)


   Cordially.

   Glen

Well, one nice thing that I neglected to mention earlier is that there
aren't many ties between Eclipse and your OS - you can zip the whole
thing up on one machine, and unzip it on another. So, you might be
able to set this up without getting the Tivoli guys involved, as you
really don't need to install anything.

In fact, if it would be helpful, I can zip up a copy and put it somewhere.

Re: [Flashcoders] Favorite Flex book?

2009-04-15 Thread Anthony Pace

Hello,

I have to put my 2 cents in with regard to security.  Open source is 
safer; for, I can scrutinize every line of code without having to jump 
through hoops.


If there is an issue with open source in the enterprise, this is usually 
caused by licensing factors, not security.  (BS intellectual property 
copyright/patent issues.)


Open source equates to progress, and although this create avenues for 
competition, competition is healthy for the marketplace and helps to 
keep costs down.


Thank you,
Anthony

Dave, I'm really growing weary of this thread, I see we're not on the

of these things should be that big of a hurdle for you.

Well, should is different than is.  I think you are missing that
point - the what you think the situation SHOULD be, vs. the reality of
our security measures. I am not the one who decides if open source
software is considered a higher security risk (though I still agree that
it is, based on the points I raised, but I also love the stuff, I use
FlashDevelop daily for example).  So reality is, it is perceived as a
higher security risk in our enterprise, and I cannot change that fact.
I have other issues with open source like the article mentioned, like
poor customer support and service plans, but that is another issue

[Flashcoders] Flex Programmer Needed

2009-04-15 Thread Dominic Tancredi

Heya FlashCoders!

Speaking of Flex... this is Dominic, long-time member, but haven't  
been to a meeting in a while (crazy busy). I'm looking for a Flex  
Developer who can come in for a week or two to help me out with some  
Flex / Flash / Coldfusion / AMFPHP work. Starts ASAP but I'm just  
swamped with work and need a solid programmer who can put in on-site,  
freelance work. Knowing OOP and Cairngorms is helpful, same with  
Coldfusion / PHP but not totally necessary. I WILL get you up to speed  
on projects, what we're doing, how we're coding it, etc. so you can  
learn as you go if any of this scares you.


Also, I'm a fan of this book: Adobe Flex 3: Training from the Source.  
I understand the argument of Do It then Do It Again Only Better  
but that's because you can't always show the forest without showing  
the trees. And I'm a nut when it comes to constantly refactoring code  
to be better and better and better. If you suspect you are, take a  
look at 6 month old code and see if you can stop yourself from  
tweaking it to be even more fine-tuned.

Also, my Eclipse seems to be in a folder at the same level as the

 Ha.  Well great, seems my eclipse.ini file is missing - could you send
 me a good one (meaning good settings - I have 2GB ram) or copy and paste
 the contents into a reply and I'll make one with notepad and add the
 .ini extension?  Thanks.  I had done this before with the
 Flexbuilder.ini file because that had been missing too.

OK. On the desktop I'm working with right now, with a default
integrated install of FlexBuilder, here's my FlexBuilder.ini file:

-vmargs
-Xms128m
-Xmx512m
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-XX:PermSize=64m
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

This machine also has 2GB RAM, and I haven't had any problems with it.
In the case of the integrated install, FlexBuilder will by default use
the JVM installed in c:\program files\adobe\flex builder 3\jre, which
is 1.5.0_11-b03. You can safely increase -Xms to 512m, which would
allocate all of that memory before startup.

 Also, my Eclipse seems to be in a folder at the same level as the
 Flexbuilder 3 folder -not IN the Flexbuilder 3 folder.  Is that a
 problem?  I can get Flexbuilder to run, it just quickly later on gives
 me a memory error and quits.

With the FlexBuilder plugin installed into an existing copy of
Eclipse, you typically have these two directories:

c:\eclipse
c:\program files\adobe\flex builder 3 plug-in

The FB3 plugin directory contains a subdirectory named eclipse, but
that's not where Eclipse actually lives.

If you can, you might check your Eclipse configuration settings. You
can get to this by choosing the last item from the Help menu, then
clicking on Configuration Settings. I'll email you the settings from
both installs on this desktop.

 In the case of the integrated install, FlexBuilder will by default
use the JVM installed in c:\program files\adobe\flex builder 3\jre

I looked in that folder, and all I see are license files, copyright,

of those or could I possibly be missing something there too?  What is
