[Flashcoders] Flex sdk set up question

2009-04-27 Thread Dave Segal
Sorry to ask a Flex question here but I'm sure one of you knows the answer
or at least can point me to the place I can find the answer.

I am using Flex builder to build a pure AS project. I have been using the
3.0 sdk without a problem. When I updated the SDK to in order to build a
Flash 10 project the compiler can't find the core flash package. So base
stuff like MovieClip does not exist. I pretty much just downloaded the
SDK and added via the preferences dialogue. I've tried the 3.2, 3.3, 4.0
SDKs with the same results. I'm sure I am missing some step but I'm not
sure what.

Also, where is the best forum for asking Flex questions?

Thanks

[Flashcoders] Document class constructor

2009-04-16 Thread Dave Segal
What is the order of execution for the document class constructor. The
behavior seems inconsistent. For example, when I load my swf independently
calling this.loaderInfo.url in the constructor returns the correct url.
However, the same thing returns null if my swf is loaded by another swf. 

 

Is it safe to do this or will it create a race condition when the swf is
loaded independently?

 

public function DocumentClassConstructor()

{

  trace(this.loaderInfo.url); // url might be null

this.loaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, init);

}

 

public function init()

{

  // everything is ready, proceed

trace(this.loaderInfo.url); // always return the url

}

Re: [Flashcoders] id3 runtime error

2009-04-03 Thread Dave Segal
This is the error I am seeing. Strangely the part after the word access is 
left blank. Which leads me to believe it is some kind of timing bug on my side 
however, the trigger for this function is the ID3 event. I also tried waiting 
for the COMPLETE event but the same issue occurs. As I mentioned the mp3 file 
is on the same server so I'm not sure why it would be looking for a policy file 
at all. The files are in different directories however if that gives some clue.

SecurityError: Error #2122: Security sandbox violation: Sound.id3: 
http://content.dev.com/char/engines/engine.swf cannot access . A policy file is 
required, but the checkPolicyFile flag was not set when this media was loaded.

Thanks for your help.

I see the request in the headers and when I debug with Flex, the variables all 
appear to be declared correctly. I tried hardcoding the url as well but I get 
the same issue. I'm stumped. I suppose I can just catch the error and try to 
reload the mp3 file though that is a very unsatisfying solution.

I'll see if I can create a simple example of the issue and post to the forum.

Do you have firebug?

Is it possible that it's using the wrong path or even trying to
request  when it makes the call? If you have firebug, you can look
at all of the http requests through the net panel.

If you're using a variable to make the load call, try hardcoding a
value and see if that solves the issue...

Although, I'm not sure if Flash is throwing the security error if it
will even show up.

Can you paste the code that does the loading and event handling?

The file upload has to occur as the result of a user interaction. If you
are doing any upload that is not associated with button click Flash 10
rejects the upload. The change is not backward compatible. Flash 8 and 9
content that do not conform is broken.

Here are couple articles on the topic and the F10 security documentation.

Actually this is not the way security updates were made in the past. With
other updates, for instance the introduction of and multiple changes to
the allowDomain rules, backward compatibility was maintained for older
versions.

I agree with Juan, breaking a feature that has been supported for years is
a serious lack of respect for users of the platform. I guess it's time to
start looking at the alternatives to Flash that are out there.

The problem is if they took that approach, the vague security hole would
continue to exist - a potential exploit would simply need to compile for
an
old version of the player.

It's awful, but I wouldn't really say it's an stupid decision. As soon
as
they decided to cripple the functionality, making it global is the only
way
to go. It's a no-win situation. This is also the way certain similar
security decisions have been made in the past.

I think the only real solution would be to let it work as usual, BUT add
an
optional checkbox to the file browsing dialog that would let the user
disable further dialogs from that Flash movie (or at least THEN make it
respond to events only), in the same vein Google Chrome does with
Javascript
dialog popups. It works very well to combat the focus-stealing exploits,
and
I'm not sure why Adobe didn't take that route instead.

[Flashcoders] GC-ing a SharedObject

2008-08-26 Thread Dave Segal
I have a large scale project I am working on that needs to be loaded and
unload so of course I am running into the dreaded AS3 garbage collection
mess.

I've tracked down the problem to a local SharedObject of a particular
class. The destructor of said class closes the SharedObject (even though
that shouldn't be necessary since it is local) and nulls the variable but
it seems this is not enough for the garbage collector. The memory is not
released. However, if I never create the SharedObject in the first place
and go through the same destruction procedure memory is released!

Help!

 There were some concrete answers posted to your question. Anyway, 
 let's see if we can solve it again.

 Before I will try and help with your problem, I want to point out 
 something about your code. I am not sure if you are using (in your 
 real
 application) an interface which you will cast your class to:

 *var _lm:ILoadMe = ILoadMe(_ldr.content);*

 If you are using the actual class, the problem is that the whole class 
 and it's dependencies are compiled into you main swf, defeating a big 
 part of the purpose of loading the swf into it.

 In my previous reply to your earlier email I posted a Flex version of 
 the answer. This time I created a Flash example. It is added as
attachment.

 The attached zip file contains 2 directories. Make sure you have your 
 webserver point to to these directories, the virtual hosts in apache:

 *VirtualHost *:80
   ServerName domain1
   DocumentRoot E:\Projects\domain1
 /VirtualHost

 VirtualHost *:80
   ServerName domain2
   DocumentRoot E:\Projects\domain2
 /VirtualHost*

 In the hosts file (if you are on windows) you need these 2 entries:

 *127.0.0.1 domain1
 127.0.0.1 domain2*

 In order to test the example, call this url: 
 *http://domain1/domain1.html*

 You should see this appear on your screen:

 *domain1.swf
 domain2.swf loaded
 Domain2Base*

 I hope this will solve your problem.

I posted about this before and didn't receive and answer but it is still

http://server1.mydomain.com/load_me.swf that uses the Document class

I want to be able to load this swf from a different server, say
http://server2.mydomain.com/load_stuff.swf, and cast it to a LoadMe when
it is done loading. Should this work? I keep getting errors when trying to
cast in the init handler.

 

 

import com.mydomain.componet.LoadMe;

 

var _req:URLRequest = new
URLRequest(http://server1.mydomain.com/load_me.swf;);

var _ldr:Loader = new Loader();

var _context:LoaderContext = new LoaderContext();

_context.securityDomain = SecurityDomain.currentDomain;

_context.applicationDomain = ApplicationDomain.currentDomain;

_ldr.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.INIT, initHandler, false, 0,
true);

_ldr.load(_req, _context);

[Flashcoders] frame rate guidelines

2008-02-22 Thread Dave Segal
Are there any general guidelines about what frame rate to use when
publishing an swf?

 

Also, are there any techniques for adjusting the frame rate of an swf at
runtime?

[Flashcoders] AVM1 loadMovie problems

2007-12-17 Thread Dave Segal
I am  having some problems loading multiple Flash 8 movies into Flash 9. I
understand that this not recommended and that is preferred to work with
all Flash 9/AS 3 content. 

 

Here is the situation. I have 2 Flash 8 swfs, let's call these
f8loader1.swf and f8loader2.swf. Both of these swfs instantiate the
same class, F8AssestClass,  which loads another Flash 8 swf,
f8asset.swf.   In my Flash 9 application I am loading f8loader1.swf
which instantiates F8AssetClass which loads f8asset.swf just as
planned.  However, when I then load f8loader2.swf, it starts up and
instantiates F8AssetClass but f8asset.swf never loads. I have tried to
load f8asset.swf with both loadMovie and with the MovieClipLoader. It
never loads the second time.

 

I have a project where the above scenario is going to be in play multiple
times and I don't have much flexibility to adjust the Flash 8 content. I'm
hoping someone can help me understand what is happening here and let me
know if whether it is possible to achieve this. 

 

I have example files I can send if anyone is interested.

[Flashcoders] System.as vs System.security

2007-04-09 Thread Dave Segal
I asked a question about this on Friday with no response but here goes
again this time with more details. It seems like the Flash compiler is
choking on the System class when I delete the ASO cache and compile. Here
is all the code in my test fla:

System.security.allowDomain( http://www.mydomain.com
www.mydomain.com);
System.exactSettings = false;
 
and here is the compiler error I get from the System.as:
 
**Error** C:\Documents and Settings\dave\Local Settings\Application
Data\Macromedia\Flash 8\en\Configuration\Classes\FP8\System.as: Line 7:
The name of this class, 'System', conflicts with the name of another class
that was loaded.
 {
 
 
Switch the order of the lines:
System.exactSettings = false;
System.security.allowDomain( http://www.mydomain.com/
www.mydomain.com);
 
and here is the compiler error I get from the security.as class
 
**Error** C:\Documents and Settings\dave\Local Settings\Application
Data\Macromedia\Flash 8\en\Configuration\Classes\FP8\System\security.as:
Line 7: The name of this class, 'System.security', conflicts with the name
of another class that was loaded, 'System'.
 
 
It seems that the problem is related to the fact that there is both a
System.as class, which defines exactSettings, useCodepage,  setClipboard,
etc, and a System folder which contains the System.security,
System.capabilities, and System.IME classes. When both the System package
and the System class are referenced the compiler throws an error. I
searched around and was surprised that I couldn't find any information
related to the conflict. Does anyone know how to resolve this?
Thanks
Dave

[Flashcoders] compiler error from System class

2007-04-07 Thread Dave Segal
Someone on my team keeps getting compiler errors like this.

**Error** C:\Documents and Settings\Smyer\Local Settings\Application
Data\Macromedia\Flash 8\en\Configuration\Classes\FP8\System\security.as: 

Line 7: The name of this class, 'System.security', conflicts with the name
of another class that was loaded, 'System'.

The error only occurs when the ASO cache is deleted. On subsequent
compilation without deleting the ASO cache the file compiles fine. Anyone
have any insight into why this would be happening?

RE: [Flashcoders] Detecting embedded domain?

2007-03-13 Thread Dave Segal
Someone else on this list hooked me up with this a while back. It works as 
long as JavaScript is not restricted on the pages your swf is embedded on 
(see mySpace).

var embedded_domain:String = flash.external.ExternalInterface.call(eval, 
location.href);

Subject: [Flashcoders] Detecting embedded domain?

Building a video player that can be embedded in a web page. We'd like to be 
able to detect what domain the page the player is embedded on lives.
If the domain is not ours (eg, SI.com), we'd like to display a logo; if it 
is ours, we don't want to display the logo.



Does anyone know how to detect what the domain is for a page that the SWF is 
embedded on?

[Flashcoders] Security error tried to access incompatible context

2007-01-23 Thread Dave Segal
I have local file that is loading a remote file. The remote file sends a
number of events to the file that loads it. I have
System.security.allowDomain in the loading file set to allow the domain of
the file that is loaded. Events are received, everything works, no
problem.
 
But, I keep getting errors in the Flash IDE output window that say tried
to access incompatible context. 
 
Like this :
 
*** Security Sandbox Violation ***
SecurityDomain 'http://my.domain.com/my_swf.swf' tried to access
incompatible context 'file:///C|/my_local.swf'
 
I read that this is the expected behavior for the debug version of the
flash player. But it is quite annoying. Is there a way to suppress it? 
Thanks

[Flashcoders] Re: swf and referring domain

2006-11-16 Thread Dave Segal
Thanks for the response Ray but that is not really what I am looking for. I
don't want to prevent others from using my swf. I just want an way to
identify the referring domain when it is embedded. Specifically, I want
people to embed my swf from my server on their web pages (hosted by myspace
or anywhere else) and have the player detect at runtime where the request is
coming from. Unfortunately using php or asp for referrer detection is not an
option. I am hoping there is a way to get it from the player. I figure the
player must know about the referring domain as it is able to block or accept
calls from the page with the allowscriptaccess parameter.  

 
 The swf (SWFA) that wants to load your swf (SWFB) can't do so if you
 
 i) you don't allow it
 ii) you don't know where SWFA is
 
 You have to know where SWFA is to allow it.
 
 See the System.security.allowDomain entry in the Flash 8 docs; it has
 a nice diagram to illustrate things.

[Flashcoders] RE: swf and referring domain

2006-11-16 Thread Dave Segal

Thanks for the response Joey. I actually tried a similar method before that
almost worked. From Flash I did this - 

getURL(javascript:document.mySWF.SetVariable('referringDomain',document.loc
ation.host)); 

The problem I ran into was that in IE as soon as this line executes the page
stops rendering. This is especially problematic when the swf begins before
the page is done loading. The page never completes. Also, several sites I am
targeting, like mySpace, restrict javascript. I'm not sure what would happen
if I tried writing javascript at runtime to a mySpace page.
