I have switched to HTML5, from Flash, for my web apps as so many of my

proper professional credentials) and so I don't want to put them on the App 
store. I charge a subscription fee for access  to the apps and issue Usernames 
and Passwords to the subscribers. After a long search and trial of many tools, 
I settled on HandHeldDesigner. It is the closest programming tool to Flash that 
I have seen and so far I have been able to do anything with it that I have 
wanted. It is available on the Mac App store and at  http://handhelddesigner.com

I have no affiliation with the program or the author.

FITC is a great conference, I love it for the different aspects of 
design and technology, and it comes fron the Flash side.
I am living in europe and we have multi - mania in Belgium, a great 
conference and all free. http://www.multi-mania.be/2013/conference/
There are always lots of smaller, regional meetings which can give new 
input:
But a good start, as others mentioned here too, is Sencha. They provide 
a few groups/meetups: http://www.sencha.com/meetups

Where I found people for answers or questions.

Great question.  Many, like us, are in the same transition as you.

Our key learning event for 2013 will be O'Reilly's Fluent Conference

Re: [Flashcoders] making as3 movie scorm compliant

To have an idea what SCROM and LMS are, I recommend to read some

assuming I have a flash movie which communicates with a custom CMS,

As far as I can tell, I'll need some scorm as classes to communicatie

have absolutely no experience with LMSes etc and to me it's kind of 
hazy how everything fits together, which in turn makes it hard to know 
where to start/look. Is there a definite scorm specs, which will work 
with any LMS, so that I can simply pick a free open source LMS 
somewhere to test my development progress?

Am 12.02.2012 23:00, schrieb Karl DeSaulniers:

Ooops, Sry Beatrix..
I meant @Ben.
(hit reply to the wrong post)

But to make the point, you can load a png with your image cut out like 
with photoshop.
Then take a blank png the size you need the dimensions at, combine the 
two with PHP imagecreatealpha
then insert that in your game dynamically. No embedding necessary for 
this approach.


I have a script I made that does just this. Thats why I made the 
suggestion.
I was making a shopping cart for a flash site and had a lot of images 
that were PNGs of product shots
but they were all different sizes. So i created this script to load 
the image, then load the blank png
then size it to the size I needed then send it on to flash. While 
keeping the original transparency.


Sry if this is not what you needed and I miss understood.

But why don't you use 2 jpg's with one as a masc where transperency is
black.
You can generate an alpha channel form this.

Re: [Flashcoders] Large Images with Alpha Channel

2012-02-11 Thread Beatrix Krümmer-Frau

Hi Ben,

I am not 100% sure what exactly you wnat to achieve.
But why don't you use 2 jpg's with one as a masc where transperency is 
black.

You can generate an alpha channel form this.
Check this:

You can compile to Android with FlashBuilder with a little workaround.
Lets say the big difference to 4.5 is, that you need to add the emulator 
and SDK's kinda handmade.
I have an explanation with Android SDK for eclaire, but when you change 
it to any new Android SDK its the same workflow:

You can build with CS5 - basically, you create an AIR swf (using standard
desktop settings) then you can use the free SDK and a bat file (or the
command line) to compile the AIR/Playbook app.

I was able to build a Playbook app with Flash CS5 using this technique.

You can even do the same for iOS - in fact many folks using Flash CS5.5 are
doing this to get at the interpreter builds in AIR 2.7 for iOS (since they
compile so much more quickly, and can't be built from the GUI).

No, not only would that be completely useless practically, but it's 
not even possible. The old player does not have the new vm. They don't 
understand the bytecode and they don't know of the tags related to it.



New players will ignore as 2 related tags when the swf declares that
it is as 2.


I dont think this is true, as even new players detect as 2 and play it.


Please pay more attention, I explicitly stated that they only do it 
when the swf is declaring that it uses as 3.


The fact that I have already tested this should be evidence enough.

They don't document this. And the tool is not publicly available. I am

[Flashcoders] Actionscript 3 and Flashplayer 8

2010-10-18 Thread Beatrix Krümmer-Frau


 Hi all,

I am searching informations about using Actionscript 3 for projects, 
which have to run in old, old Flash Versions.  I need arguments for 
customers who still work with Actionscript 2.

Any suggestions are welcome, will do a paper on this issue.

Thanks in advance

If the goal is to get the MVC patterns  usage down correctly, that is.
In practice I'm definitely finding RL faster to develop with (particularly

Re: [Flashcoders] How to rotate dynamic textfield

It seems you embed the font at the wrong place:

var tf:TextField = new TextField();
tf.embedFonts=true;

try instead:

Hi,

Your text field needs to have embedFonts set to true and you need the
corresponding font characters either embedded in that text field, or
another one used in the movie.  embedFonts property should be True if
you set the embedding in the IDE.

An alternate hack for rotating is to do a bitmap snapshot of the text
field, then rotate the bitmap.

Re: [Flashcoders] addEventListener Problem

Did you check the spelling?

1120: Access to undefined property NavToURL - navToURL()



Susan Day schrieb:

Hi;
I have the following code:

function DisplayPicLoaded(evt:Event):void
{
var container:Sprite = new Sprite();
var myXArray:Array = new Array(10,176,342,508,674,840);
var loaderInfo:LoaderInfo = evt.target as LoaderInfo;
var displayObject:DisplayObject = loaderInfo.content;
displayObject.width = 150;
displayObject.height = 150;
displayObject.x = myXArray[countRounds];
displayObject.y = 10;
displayObject.filters = [createBevel()];
container.addChild(displayObject);
addChild(container);
navPics.push(displayObject);
container.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, NavToURL);
if (countRounds  5)
{
countRounds++;
init();
}
}

function navToURL(e:Event):void
{
e.currentTarget.removeEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, navToURL);
trace(e.currentTarget);
trace('hi');
}

It throws the following error:

1120: Access to undefined property NavToURL

Why? What do?
TIA,
Susan

Re: [Flashcoders] AS3 loading swf movie very slow

2010-01-30 Thread Beatrix Krümmer-Frau

When you add something, you need to remove it = addChild - removeChild
Coming from AS2 you should understand DisplayObjects...then everything 
is easy...

I think flash/flex is no option :s

It's too expensive to brazillian market :p

How many time Flex/Flash took to pay it self?


  

I think a lot of people on the flash lists don't realise how much money
some corporates invest in software development. $15K would be a fraction of
the development costs in some projects. It's a completely different
situation to freelancers that are working with their own development tools.
Corporates are rationalising development costs across many customers while
often freelancers/small companies are rationalising their costs from one or
very few customers.

More than that - Flex 1.x was around $15k USD according to our
pricelist. And, frankly, it kind of sucked. But Flex 2 changed all
that!

You can completely go open source, developing flash and even flex 
applications.
A good explanation how to use Flash Develop you can find here - even 
when it covers flex 2:

Check the book from Friends of Ed. open source development with flash 
for even more information.

 I agree with the article and with what Steve has pointed out already.
 Even from an historical point of view, I think that what made the flash
 platform ubiquitous was that many people started to create cool stuff for
 it. 
Hi,
at this point i just want to remember what the pioneers, the masters of 
flash, did for the success of Flash. Remember Ray of Light from Yasuto 
Suga - the reason i started learning flash. With this little Banners 
and experimentations, Desigerns work and Programmers effords - Flash 
grew and became what it is today. Flash needs both, also in the future, 
i hope Colin this is what you mean in your article.
