I think that it makes sense that the functions like formHidden() gets

It think you will need to put only the function name/ref like so:
 this.quoteRequest_mc.ySlideTo(quoteHideY,4,easeoutbounce,.5, 
formHidden ,20,4.5);



Give it a try.

Hello List,
I'm having an issue getting my MC_Tween2 scripts to behave 
appropriately. AS2.

I am trying to set a function that triggers after the tween is done.
I am sure this is easier than I am figuring, but I'm stuck.
I can get the tweens to work, but they trigger the function while 
tweeneing.

[code eg]
var beginAlpha = 0;
var endAlpha = 100;
var quoteShowY:Number = 219.9;
var quoteHideY:Number = -219.9;
this.quoteRequest_mc._y = quoteHideY;
function formVisible() {
if (!this.quoteRequest_mc.isTweening()) {//this way doesn't work 
at all ???

this.quoteRequest_mc.gotoAndPlay(2);
}
}
function formHidden() { //this way plays while hideForm() is Tweening
this.quoteRequest_mc.gotoAndStop(1);
}
function showForm() {
this.quoteRequest_mc.alphaTo(endAlpha,3.5,easeoutquint,.5);

this.quoteRequest_mc.ySlideTo(quoteShowY,4,easeoutbounce,.5,formVisible(),20,4.5); 
}

function hideForm() {
this.quoteRequest_mc.alphaTo(beginAlpha,3.5,easeoutquint,.5);

this.quoteRequest_mc.ySlideTo(quoteHideY,4,easeoutbounce,.5,formHidden(),20,4.5); 
}

showForm();
What on earth am I doing wrong??
It all looks like it should work!
Also, on the tweens themselves, they dont play very smooth.
Am I doing somthing wrong with the timing or the ease period or 
amount of ease? What?

I want them to play somewhat quickly, but smooth.
Thank you for any help.

Re: [Flashcoders] CS4 combobox embedded text disappears when disabled

2009-07-13 Thread Glen Pike

Hi,

   I had a similar problem in the past where I had to reassign the data 
provider to the combo box - I can't remember exactly what I was doing, 
but something to do with hiding / disabling the box messed up the 
display of embedded fonts, etc.


   Anyway, try that - it might help - hope so.

If I use default text and disable the combobox, the text appears with 
some alpha effect. If I embed text and disable the combobox , the text 
disappears.




_Scenario using default text:_
To test, I just place a combobox in a flash page. I add a couple of 
items to the combobox and name the combobox test_cb.


test_cb.addEventListener(Event.CHANGE, changeHandler);

function changeHandler(event:Event):void {
  test_cb.enabled = false;
}

Everything works hunky dory. The combobox is disabled AND the selected 
text item is still visible.


_Scenario using embedded text:_

In my library I create a new font (in my case i used arial bold 12) 
and named it ComboFont. Linkage settings to be exported for 
actionscript and in frame 1.


In my actions layer:
// Create a new instance of the Font1 symbol from the document's library.
var myFont:Font = new ComboFont();

var myFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
myFormat.font = myFont.fontName;
test_cb.setStyle(embedFonts, true);
test_cb.setStyle(textFormat, myFormat);
// Set dropdown style for comboBox
test_cb.textField.setStyle(embedFonts, true);
test_cb.textField.setStyle(textFormat, myFormat);

test_cb.dropdown.setRendererStyle(textFormat, myFormat);

test_cb.addEventListener(Event.CHANGE, changeHandler);

function changeHandler(event:Event):void {
 
  test_cb.enabled = false;

}

The font looks like it has been embedded, it is much darker.
When the combobox is disabled after an item has been selected, the 
text is NOT visible.


I would appreciate any help!

I know it probably sounds dumb , but I'm having a hard time understanding
this statement

mc.scaleX  mc.scaleY ? mc.scaleY = mc.scaleX : mc.scaleX = mc.scaleY;

Would that mean something like:

if (mc.scaleX  mc.scale){
 mc.scaleY = mc.scaleX
} else if if (mc.scaleX  mc.scale){
 mc.scaleX = mc.scaleY;
}

?

Hi,

   They are both statements using the ternary operator - you had the 
right idea in your prevouse email.


   
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=enq=actionscript+ternary+operatorbtnG=Google+Searchmeta=aq=0oq=actionscript+tern


   Basically it reads (If the condition before the qestion mark is 
true) ? do this : otherwise do that;
  
   It is often better to write out your ternary statement with brackets 
because it helps make it a bit clearer.


   Something like this:

   maxH = (maxH == 0) ? maxW : maxH;

[Flashcoders] circle menu

2009-07-13 Thread Rodrigo Augusto Guerra
hi fokls!

my client asked me to change a menu in his site. the new menu has to:

- load X images from a XML and display it in some sort of path (circle)
- once you rollover the image should get bigger, if rollout it should go back 
to the previous scale (keeping the original position in the circle path).
- the images should not overlap others
- if you add more images the menu should re-arrange them to fit all together.

my problems:
- math envolved to put the loaded images in the circle path
- math to re-arrange the items as new items are added to xml
- they need some detection to prevent the images from overlapping when loaded 
or when scaling

any ideas/examples/url's that could help me with this?

[Flashcoders] AS3 loading swf gets resized

2009-07-13 Thread noentourage
I'm dynamically loading swf's or jpgs in to a loader class that I wrote and
it works well with jpgs but
the loaded swf's get resized too large. I tried setting the size of the
actual loader but that doesn't change anything.
My loader class takes the following params...

public function
ImageLoader(img:String,w:Number,h:Number,sclImg:Boolean,showPrg:Boolean =
true)

img is the file string to load.
w: is the width of the file to load
h: is the height of the file to load
sclImg: Is true or false to scale the image. Set it to true if you know the
image is larger than the w  h you pass in.
showPrg: is to show the progress bar or not.

I have a swf that is 700x460 and this contains a MovieClip that I scaled
down to fit in these dimensions. The MovieClip contains and embedded swf
that originally was built
by someone else at too large of a size (1024x768) to fit my main Flash
movie. It's a frame tween animation so it's going to take too long to
rebuild the original animation which is why I imported it into the 700x460
fla as a movieclip then scaled it down.

This is a weird behavior so I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem or
knows of a simple fix.

Thanks,

Re: [Flashcoders] AS3 loading swf gets resized

2009-07-13 Thread Karl DeSaulniers
You might want to build an onLoadComplete function in your class  
that you call and set up a resize param that gets called after the  
file is loaded. Or you could google ImageLoader and use that class.  
It is a very nice class that dynamically loads and tracks progress. It  
also  smooths the dynamic image as well.

Point.polar() will easily take care of the first two bullets.  Not sure

Re: [Flashcoders] circle menu

2009-07-13 Thread Rodrigo Augusto Guerra

thanks Jason, Deepak for the propmt answer on this.

I'll take a look at point.polar. Deepak, my previous menu was the same model 
you sent, like a carousel menu, but this one has to stand still (that's ok) 
and not overlap (this is not ok). I believe that detecting the overlap and 
not allow the overlap when scaled is the tricky part, as we can have 
different sizes for the images that will be loaded in the cicle area. 
Perhaps, limiting the image size helps a little.

I believe that it would be like the osX dock menu but circular:
http://jrgraphix.net/research/flash-dock-mx-2004.php


I'll keep trying!

Why can their server and voip applications do this and our applications

Re: [Flashcoders] circle menu

 thanks Jason, Deepak for the propmt answer on this.

 I'll take a look at point.polar. Deepak, my previous menu was the same model
 you sent, like a carousel menu, but this one has to stand still (that's ok)
 and not overlap (this is not ok). I believe that detecting the overlap and
 not allow the overlap when scaled is the tricky part, as we can have
 different sizes for the images that will be loaded in the cicle area.
 Perhaps, limiting the image size helps a little.
 I believe that it would be like the osX dock menu but circular:

  my problems:
 - math envolved to put the loaded images in the circle path
 - math to re-arrange the items as new items are added to xml
 - they need some detection to prevent the images from overlapping when

 loaded or when scaling

 Point.polar() will easily take care of the first two bullets.  Not sure
 about the third one, pretty easy on a grid, but that could be tricky
 given a circular layout.

[Flashcoders] To Void or not to void?? That is my question..

2009-07-13 Thread Karl DeSaulniers

Using AS2.
When is it best to use the :Void ? and what is the difference between  
that and :void ?

I have a somewhat understanding of what each are,
I am asking more to you (The List) as a programers, what is the  
best case scenarios to use these things?
What are the advantages and why use them if say, your function works  
without them?
I know that the Void is a Boolean, but I also know you cant use it  
when the statement returns something.
Does this return include any of the basics like gotoAndPlay? or  
does it literally mean a return(); ???

[Flashcoders] Getting hypertext to work

2009-07-13 Thread Alan Neilsen
When I use 'Options' in 'Properties' to apply a link to text in my Flash movie 
(CS4), it works okay when I test the movie, but when I create the SWF and try 
the same thing, it tells me, Adobe Flash player has stopped a potentially 
unsafe operation. This seems strange, because hypertext created in Dreamweaver 
does not generate a potentially unsafe warning, so why should it happen in 
Flash? There is no point me changing my Flash Player settings (as advised by 
the warning) because it still won't work for my client's end users (who are 
generally computer-illiterate, and cannot be expected to understand about 
changing Flash Player settings). Is it possible to create a hypertext link in 
Flash CS4 that will just work without the need to change Flash Player settings?

Re: [Flashcoders] To Void or not to void?? That is my question..

2009-07-13 Thread Taka Kojima
:Void is AS2, and :void is AS3

The definition of void is nothingness: the state of nonexistence...

The syntax of functionName():void{} simply states that the function returns
nothing... i.e. there is no return at the end of the function.

Although specifying a :void return type is not necessary in AS3, it is
considered best practice to include it. I believe it will generate warnings
if you don't.

In AS2, it really doesn't matter if you do :Void after functions.

The reason this syntax exists is to make it easy for compilers to easily
identify problems in regards to object types, i.e. if you're trying to use
the return value of a function as a MovieClip when it should really be an
Array, or void. It also makes it easier for you to see what type of value
the function is returning just by looking at the top of the function
definition.

RE: [Flashcoders] To Void or not to void?? That is my question..

2009-07-13 Thread Barry Hannah
Karl, a function returns something if you include a line return
value at the end of the function...

For example, if you had a function that returned a random number below
100:

function giveMeARandomNumberBelow100():Number
{
var myRandomNumberBelow100:Number = Math.random() * 100;
return myRandomNumberBelow100;
}


Pointless function of course, but you get the idea?

Barry.

Let's say I wanted to do something like this...

trace(Taka  + getLastName(Taka));

function getLastName(firstName:String):String{
if(firstName == Taka){return Kojima;}
else{return ;}

That function returns a String. Having a gotoAndPlay() inside a function is
not a return value.

Hope that helps.

Are you serious?

How about:
-voice recognition could add an entirely new level of web based interaction
-The ability to transmit the audio data through your own protocol for 
any number of reasons

-A multitude of apps that need the ability to record audio locally

There are a ton of doors that this would open up for browser based and 
desktop applications; which, would translate into more jobs for, what is 
said to be, a very unstable economy.

[Flashcoders] Playing an encrypted f4v

2009-07-13 Thread Carl Welch
Hi guys,

My client asked if I could load an encrypted f4v, decrypt it and then
play it. I found the as3Crypto libraries, so I have that part covered.
Now I'm wondering if its even possible to load the f4v as a binary
file or something, decrypt and then play it. I've tried a couple of
tests with an unencrypted file but I can't figure out how to get
around not using the netstream function.

 So basically my question is if this is even possible or am I headed
down a dead end street?

Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Thanks.
