[Flashcoders] commercial flash multi-touch projects?

2007-06-04 Thread Josh Santangelo
Hello list -- this may be OT or rule-breaking, but please don't kill  
me over it. I did a bit of work on the MS Surface project on a  
temporary basis and had a great time with it (see endquote.com for  
some info). Unfortunately due to some technology decisions in the  
group, Flash devs are not really needed anymore. I'd love to do more  
multi-touch work, but am not sure who's doing work in this area  
combined with Flash.


If anyone is involved in or aware of projects in this area in need of  
dev help, I'd love to hear about it.


thanks,
-josh

Re: [Flashcoders] More fun with XPATH... now I want XSLT in Flash!

2007-04-13 Thread Josh Santangelo
I wanted the same thing at once time, and asked the xfactorstudio  
gent about it. He said that he'd looked into it at once point but  
found that it was very difficult to implement XSLT in AS2 at any  
reasonable level of performance.


AS3 + E4X would likely be another matter.

Okay, next question re: XPath in Flash

the XML. I know I can use the built-in XML class and XFactor  
studios XPath
to traverse and find what I need, but XSLT would be much more  
efficient.


FYI... This is a standalone project being delivered on CD using  
Director MX

except for

possibly loading a few web sites. So server-side transforms are not an

i guess all embedded flash now has to be wrapped by:

param name=allowScriptAccess value=never /
 param name=allowNetworking value=internal /

so that means its not possible to have a widget that links back to
your site using getURL.

are there any other workarounds?
eg using an (in flash) an html text field with an a href=...
or having the myspace code also include a small text link under the

I guess other sites that host widgets maybe less restrictive. has

Re: [Flashcoders] practical limits to size of XML files?

2007-03-11 Thread Josh Santangelo
My suggestion would be to create the file with dummy data, and run  
some processing tests on it on machines of various speeds.


My guess is that you'll find it to be pretty slow unless your  
processing code is very clever. I have a project with a 250KB  
external XML file as content and certain sorting and filtering  
options do take a while. Another which is 210KB has similar problems.


If your app will tolerate it, you could do processor-intensive  
operations across multiple frames and present an hourglass to the  
user or something.


If performance is super imporant, you might try organizing your data  
in a tabular format, which will be a much larger file, but should be  
quicker to process and sort.


Or perhaps you could do it in Flash 9 and take advantage of E4X in AS3.

If you know everyone running it will be on super fast machines, then  
maybe you don't have anything to worry about.

Hi all,

I have a project that I have spec'ed for developing in Flash MX 04

there are any

practical limitations to using XML with Flash. The data lends itself
beautifully to XML, and would be an easy conversion to XML from the

amount of

levels deep, such as:

--

x part-description
+ item
x item-type
x item-filename
x item-label
--
+ NODE (0 or more of each)  x TBD: ELEMENT or ATTR of parent element
--

The data will not require sorting. Data will be presented in the  
sequence

contained in the XML file. In addition, searching will only be done by
*part-number* with optional filtering by *item-type*.

So, I have approx. 5000 *item* records and prefer to do this with  
XML. The

project is CD-based, not an online application. Is it practical to
read/parse that much XML into a single XML object in a Flash

[Flashcoders] controlling quicktime and windows media player from flash via javascript

Longest. Subject line. Ever.

I have a project which requires a Flash UI to control either a

figure it out, but I'm wondering if anyone's seen/done examples of  
this before I just dive right in.

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash on Wii

2006-12-24 Thread Josh Santangelo

I did some poking around and discovered the following:

- The user-agent of the Wii browser (US version) is  Opera/9.00  
(Nintendo Wii; U; ; 1309-9; en).

- The Flash Player version on the Wii is WII 7.0.70.0
- You CAN enter a URL directly to a SWF.
- You CAN add a favorite directly to a SWF, but it won't show a good  
icon in the favorites screen.
- A SWF's stage at 100% width and height in 16:9 mode (480p) is  
1024x500.

- In 4:3 mode it is 800x500.
- After messing with the screen mode I was able to get the browser  
into a state where it was reporting the stage size as 700x150.  
Restarting the Wii fixed it.
- There are no global objects named Controller, Remote, Buttons, Wii,  
Nintendo, or com (looking for things like Mouse and Key).
- When pressing the A button on the remote, you get a mousedown event  
-- in fact it seems like you get four of them!

- Releasing the A button does not create a mouseup event.
- onMouseMove works pretty much as expected.
- Mouse.hide() does not hide the Wii remote pointer.
- Clicking on a text input field does bring up the Wii on-screen  
keyboard.
- I was not able to trap any events from buttons other than A on the  
main remote using mouse or keyboard events -- also tried Nunchuck and  
Classic Controller.


My only tools here are outputting things to a text field and using  
ASSetPropFlags to unhide any potentially-hidden variables. If anyone  
else has other tricks for finding things, I'd be into hearing them,  
but at this point it looks like you can't do anything particularly  
cool with Flash on Wii.

There is a Lexus website which does something similar to what you're

I've looked into g.wygonik's blazePDF. While this looks like an
awesome component, I don't think it's robust enough to do everything
I'll need - the PDF output I'm expecting may easily run to 20+ pages
of complex charts - drawing each page line-segment at a time may not
be feasible. Plus, the appearance of the output is critical - all
kinds of curves, gradients, etc. - the fancy stuff.

Another requirement is that the PDF should pull-in a few
pre-generated PDFs and incorporate them into the output file.

I'm guess I'm looking for a server-side solution.

I don't even really know if anything like this is possible, but if
anyone has any insights, tips, or experience they could share, I'd

// This is location of the remote service
$client = new soapclient('http://' . username . : . password .

I've had similar problems and struggled for weeks to solve them. I

Another thing to mess with is the visiblePlayerIndex and

the other in the same player, switch between a couple of player  
indexes. I think this approach works a bit better.

What's a better way of using one FLVPlayback object that reloads video

[Flashcoders] [ot-ish] Font customization (will pay $ for help)

2006-12-02 Thread Josh Santangelo
One of my projects requires the use of some specific dingbat symbols  
in the middle of text. These symbols are custom artwork which I have  
in a vector format. I can't just put them in as img tags in an HTML  
text field, because you can't do inline images in HTML in Flash.


The site uses one font, and three weights of it -- normal, bold, and  
italic. I asked a friend who is a type designer to insert these  
symbols into the fonts and export them back out as TTF files. Worked  
great, except for one weird quirk. With one of the fonts installed at  
a time, they work fine. With them all installed, they take on each  
other's characteristics somewhat randomly in Flash -- normal will be  
bold, bold will be italic, italic will be normal -- what they do  
seems to depend on the order in which they're installed or something.  
This is on Mac.


So: I'd like to provide someone with the original fonts, the revised  
fonts, and the symbol artwork and get a set of fonts back which work  
correctly in the Flash 8 IDE on OS X. In exchange I can pay some fair  
amount of money or provide an equivalent favor of some kind. Anyone  
up for it?


thanks,

In addition to web access, there's a Windows desktop client, and a

[Flashcoders] Saving an image from a webcam?

2006-11-23 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm working on a digital photo booth. The idea is that with a webcam and 
a touch screen, I can save a still image from the camera back to a 
server and then do other fun things with it from there.


I thought FMS2 could save images from webcams, but now I'm finding that 
it's only video. Great. I could just capture short videos and then work 
out some way to convert them with ffmpeg, but that sounds like a big 
pain. Has anyone done similar with success? This needs to run on Windows 
btw.


I recall some demos which used AS3/FP9 to create BitmapData objects and 
send them back to the server somehow, which were then processed and 
saved as normal images. Has anyone come up with a stabilized package for 
doing this sort of thing? All I'm finding now is this...


http://www.quasimondo.com/archives/000572.php

...and I'm not sure it will work with larger images very well.

Re: [Flashcoders] HELP!!! Eventdispatcher and firefox bug????

2006-11-14 Thread Josh Santangelo
I've run into something similar where events fire differently in  
different circumstances. In my case it was the sound.load event, and  
the problem was I was calling .load just before adding the listener.  
Switching it to add the listener before calling load (which is the  
more sensible way of course) fixed it right up.

On Nov 14, 2006, at 6:47p, Mike Keesey wrote:


Ot sounds like it has to do with asynchronous events happening in
different orders.

Try this--when the XML loads, set a loaded flag on the dispatcher to
true and then dispatch a load event. Your listeners should:
1) Check if loaded is true.
2) If so, proceed.
3) If not, listen for the load event.

I'll bet what's happening now is that your listeners don't start
listening until after the XML has already been loaded--hence they  
never

receive the event.

(That said, I could be way off.)

You can use ByteArray in Flash 9 to load any kind of binary data.  
While

you could use this to create image-rendering plugins using BitmapData

there's no

[Flashcoders] determining how much of one clip intersects another

2006-10-23 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm working on a little component which is sort of like the fill-in  
bubbles on standardized tests. The user will use the mouse to  
scribble within a region. I'll draw into a clip which is on top of  
the region to fill it up. This is pretty easy.


What I want to do is every time I draw into the region, figure out  
how much of the region is full by getting a percentage of pixels  
which are filled vs the amount that aren't.


I imagine there's some slick BitmapData trick which could be used to  
make this happen, but I'm new to that class and my first guess  
involves about a million calls to getPixel to find out which are  
filled and which aren't. That's probably very slow -- surely  
someone's got a more efficient way to do this sort of thing.


Gskinner's sprites.CollisionDetection class seems like a place to  
start, but it only returns the bounds of a collision, not the  
percentage of the target which is covered.


Any ideas?

Re: [Flashcoders] How to generate a swf and convert it to a downloadable screensaver serverside?

2006-10-13 Thread Josh Santangelo
First thought: Could you store the user's custom settings in an LSO,  
then send them a screensaver exe (same exe for everyone), and then  
that screensaver reads the LSO and downloads whatever customizations  
are needed to render it as they specified in the create screensaver  
app?


Generating a custom exe for each person sounds difficult and maybe  
impossible, but there are probably ways around it if you can assume  
that your screensaver is running on a network-connected machine.

In the old days I would use Generator to create and export the
customized swf - but it has been deprecated for since flash 6!? After
that step I would then need to convert the generated swf to a
screensaver/exe file on the server which finally can be downloaded by
the user.

The question is if that is possible at all and if so which
setup/software would I need. BTW I'm on a .Net platform if that

[Flashcoders] book suggestions?

My focus in Flash development is more about apps than games, so I've  
managed to work around the fact that don't really have the background

that lend physicality to objects, such as realistic physics,  
simulated 3d, etc. However I've been fortunate to get on some very  
interesting projects lately which are not games, but do require these  
sorts of things to render their interfaces.


I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a book or two which covers  
things like vector math, matrices, 2d and 3d geometry, the equations  
behind common physical effects, etc. What do you guys use as a  
reference on these kinds of topics?

I know that while you can use the img tag in html text fields  
to  load images or symbols, that the image must be left- or right- 
aligned  with the text, and the text wraps around it. I have a  
need to have  small images *inline* with the text, however. I'm  
wondering if  anyone's worked out a hack to make this work (or at  
least appear to  work).
The first thing that comes to mind is to place some other  
character  where the image will go, search for it, figure out its  
position, and  then attach the image on top of it in the  
appropriate place. However  I'm not sure if it's possible to find  
the exact position of a  character in a TextField.
I recall seeing someone demo just that thing on a blog post   
somewhere, but I haven't bookmarked it, and I think it was  
probably  AS3 anyway (this needs to run in FP8). Flash Paper  
Viewer is able to  highlight search results in this way, but I

there (having worked on the  first version of it myself).

Re: [Flashcoders] HTTP Statuscode 206 Partial content

2006-10-03 Thread Josh Santangelo
If there are 100 SWFs being loaded, the first thing I would check is  
that you aren't issuing 100 loadMovies all at once. Limit it to  
something like 4 at a time and wait for one to complete before  
issuing the 5th.

HTTP 206 Partial Content and LoadMovie

This is a nasty bug, and a little arcane, but  I'd greatly  
appreciate any

help.

I have a flash application (created in Flash MX 2004, Actionscript  
2.0,
saved as flash 6) which is loading a number of swfs (100 or so).   
The SWFs

make up some character animations, and we kick many of them off
simultaneously. We then have a loader that flips through them  
checking if

they are loaded, and once they are all loaded, starts the application.

99.9% of the time it works fine, but every so often it hangs on the  
load

screen and never leaves.

I've only been able to confirm this happening in firefox, but one  
of our

testers claims it happened in IE as well.

I finally got some hard evidence was going on by looking at the  
headers

(courtesy of the cool livehttpheaders firefox extension).

An example is pasted in below (scroll to bottom), here's the order of
events:
-Flash app loads objects.swfs a couple times
-First GET request is met with a happy HTTP/1.x 200 OK
-Second GET request is met with not so happy HTTP/1.x 206 Partial  
Content


And that's it, stuff pretty much just stops after that, movie never  
finishes

loading, so presumably objects.swf is never really complete.

My theory is flash is part of the way through getting the first  
objects.swf
when it requests the second one, which results in turn in a PARTIAL  
CONTENT

request, which for some reason isn't working as advertised in this
situation.

QUESTIONS:
1. Is my theory right? If not, any other ideas?

2. I can think of two possible fixes:
-Switch to flash 7, use the MovieLoaderClass and use the  
onLoadError to
trigger an attempted reload of the swfs.  This would suck because  
the app is

working fine in flash 6 now otherwise.
-Tack ?foo= + Math.random() on the end of every swf load, so we  
get no
caching. Downside is we get no caching, and we are loading a lot of  
swfs

repeatedly.
Anyone got any other bright ideas?

I'd GREATLY appreciate any help or advice!

_peter

206 Partial Content should mean either the file can not be completely
downloaded because it is still being uploaded or the web server or  
file
system is being overloaded and does not have the resources to  
access the
entire file. Hows the server load? What do the web server error  
logs say?
Are you using a PHP script to serve the file (I noticed the  
PHPSESSID)?

If so is it getting overloaded or not handling file locks properly?

I know this all sounds like stuff that should effect all browsers but
sometimes it's just timing and also how different browsers handle
different situations and errors.

Re: [Flashcoders] Selection class makes me want to kick someone in the face

2006-10-02 Thread Josh Santangelo
Could you use MovieClip.onSetFocus instead of MovieClip.onPress or  
does that only fire when a clip is tabbed to? Just a thought, haven't  
tried it.

...which is, i gather, somewhat of a general consensus.

I'm working on a tablet pc application that requires the user to be  
able to select text and transfer this text to other parts of the  
application.

The ideal way is as such:

1. The user makes a selection from *any selectable text field*
2. A button appears near the selected text
3. The user taps the button
4. The selected text is copied to a buffer
5. The selection is cleared
6. An event is broadcast

Now my problem is, this is what happens:

1. The user makes a selection
2. A button appears near the selected text
3. The user taps the button
4. The text field loses focus, launching Selection.onSetFocus,  
which checks if the current selection, now null, is an editable  
textfield. Naturally,

null is not, so the button becomes hidden.
5. The user releases the now invisible button
6. Selection.onSetFocus gathers that the new selection is null,  
and uh, returns focus to the text field, which retains its selection.
7. Now that the textfield, which is valid in terms of this  
purpose, the button is shown again.


Hmm.. Infinite cycle. Not cool.

The big issue here is that Selection.onSetFocus is called prior to  
MovieClip.onPress. This basically means there's no way i can make  
changes to the current selection
before onSetFocus is called. With this in mind: How the bloody hell  
is it possible to make changes to a selection with a button?
The more i kick this horse around, the more contrived the AS looks,  
and it's becoming seriously demoralizing.


Any input is appreciated.

[Flashcoders] timeout for XML.load?

2006-10-02 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm wondering if it's possible to alter the value which is used as a  
timeout for the XML.load method -- that is, the amount of time before  
which the onLoad event fires when no response is returned. I'm  
dealing with a server which does not always return data very quickly,  
but does return it if you wait long enough.


(I'm guessing the answer is: No, this is determined by the host  
browser/application and there's nothing you can do about it. But I  
thought I'd ask.)

Re: [Flashcoders] masking a clip which uses the drawing api

I have a clip that I'm drawing into. That clip is masked by a shape

Making a mask from a clip which you draw into does seem to work, but

2006/9/15, Merrill, Jason [EMAIL PROTECTED]:


Is it not possible to mask a clip into which you draw things using

I'm not totally sure about masking, but in general, I think there are
some bugs or conflicts with a movie clip drawn upon with the draw API
and other elements of the movie.  I'm not sure this is as related  
as you
would like, but for example, I had an issue with one of those  
drawn-on

movie clips which had another movie clip as a child, which had a
textfield on it.  It worked fine until the textfield was updated with
new data - then the old text still showed, and the new text was also
drawn over the top - so it looked like there were two overlapping
textfields.  If I separated the textfield from the clip being  
drawn on,
it worked fine.  I never could figure out the behavior, but I  
assumed it
had to do with the clips and children of clips drawn on by the  
draw API

and the way the player renders them/redraws them.  In another case,
portions of v2 components always displayed below clips which were  
drawn

upon - the drawn on clips were always on top.

Post again if you figure it out.

[Flashcoders] smooth MTASC/Mac workflow?

2006-09-02 Thread Josh Santangelo
Is anyone using MTASC on Mac in a workflow that doesn't require tons  
of jumping through hoops? Everything I've read seems incredibly  
complicated and brittle. I use TextMate but wouldn't be opposed to  
Eclipse or something instead. I generally work with FLAs that have  
all my assets in them as movieclips linked to class files. Does MTASC  
even support working with SWFs like that? What I've read seems to say  
that you need to have a SWF full of assets which just have linkage  
IDs, then you inject code into that and use lots of attachmovies to  
actually use the assets.


I'd like to use MTASC, but don't want to change my entire way of  
working and/or coding just to do so.

[Flashcoders] simple xml editor?

2006-08-13 Thread Josh Santangelo
I often develop projects in which the assets are changeable via  
properties in an external XML file. Usually my clients are savvy  
enough to open up a text editor and work with these files, but  
occasionally they're not and would rather have a more user-friendly  
CMS. In most of those cases though, such a system is outside of the  
budget.


So I'm wondering if anyone has made or used a simple XML editor which  
either lives on a web server and displays/edits an XML file on that  
server in some sort of GUI-way, or perhaps some desktop app which  
does the same on a local file. I know there are products like XMLSpy  
available, but I'm thinking of something really simple and stupid-proof.


(If such a thing doesn't exist, maybe I'll get around to making it.  
Perhaps something like Apple's Property List Editor and some AS  
classes to load/parse those files and deserialize it into native/ 
custom types.)

[Flashcoders] FLVPlayback -- pause works, but resume happens at a different point?

2006-07-31 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm running into an odd bug which I'm not sure I can do anything  
about. I'm using the FLVPlayback component with custom controls, but  
otherwise as-is, to stream video over RTMP from thePlatform  
(theplatform.com). It all works just fine.


However, when I hit my pause button, wait a while, and hit the play  
button, the video is not always resuming from where it was paused.  
Occasionally this difference is up to 5s, but seems random. As an  
example, I'm listening for the stateChange event, and here are the  
properties of its event object when pausing and resuming:


target=_level0.app.__player.__flvPlayback
type=stateChange
state=paused
playheadTime=6.87
vp=0
target=_level0.app.__player.__flvPlayback
type=stateChange
state=buffering
playheadTime=6.87
vp=0
target=_level0.app.__player.__flvPlayback
type=stateChange
state=playing
playheadTime=10.007
vp=0

The difference in this test is about 3s. Has anyone else run into  
this? Is it a problem with the server or the client?

but, as soon as the server throws an exception (the sent SOAP is a  
correct fault soap file if I call it from a browser), I only  
receive an event in my Log listener, saying unable to connect to  
endpoint...


How do you actually do to receive and interpret the server faults?

Re: [Flashcoders] Security Sandbox issue ...

2006-07-11 Thread Josh Santangelo
You're getting this because there is no file at http:// 
my.abcnews.go.com/crossdomain.xml which specifies localhost as a  
valid host for connecting to its resources. If you work for Disney,  
perhaps you can ask them to sit this up for you (not likely I think,  
even if you do work for them). Otherwise you'll have to set up some  
kind of proxy.


Google crossdomain.xml for more info.

Re: [Flashcoders] Problem while trying to connect to webservice...

2006-07-11 Thread Josh Santangelo
The WebServiceConnector component is used for connecting to SOAP- 
based web services. Make sure you are connecting to a service which  
is implemented in SOAP, and that you are using the URL to the WSDL  
version of the service. You can tell if the URL is correct because if  
you view it in a browser, you'll get a bunch of XML beginning with a  
wsdl:definitions node.


If all that is true, then whomever developed the service you're  
consuming has messed up somehow. If you're using a service which is  
not implemented in SOAP, you can probably just use methods of the  
standard XML object to access it.

[Flashcoders] a couple of FLVPlayback questions

2006-07-06 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm using the FLVPlayback component for the first time and am running  
into a couple of things. I am also using the skinnable components  
provided for use as player controls.


The capability of using multiple VideoPlayback controls within the  
component is interesting, and has me thinking about buffering the  
next clip in a series once one has finished loading. However I'm  
playing back video from FCS rather than HTTP, so I don't get any  
bytesLoaded/bytesTotal, or anything else that tells me when a file  
has finished loading. What is a good way to know when to begin  
buffering a consecutive clip?


When using the backButton and forwardButton properties to point to  
the respective component buttons, the buttons seem to display  
correctly, appearing disabled while buffering and enabled otherwise.  
However I am unable to tell when these buttons are clicked. According  
to the docs it seems like FLVPlayback should generate rewind and  
fastForward events when they are clicked, but this doesn't seem to  
be happening. Just putting a regular onRelease handler on them works  
fine though, so perhaps I'll just do that.

[Flashcoders] Chipmunk-sounding MP3s?

2006-06-24 Thread Josh Santangelo
I've got a presentation engine built which loads up audio/video/text  
from external files as defined in a presentation XML file. Works  
fine, of course until the client tries to start changing content.


The MP3s they're using are voice-overs encoded at 16kbps mono which  
play fine in QuickTime Player, but when loaded into Flash (via the  
Sound object) play back at super-speed and pitched up.


I was told at some point that Flash can only handle certain encodings  
and bitrates of MP3s, but 16k/mono is one of the options for  
exporting, so I would expect that it would be able to handle loading  
them as well. Is there a list of what bitrates are supported  
somewhere? Google isn't giving me any love.

The matter is that I HAVE to use LI as same text is used by

All text data for this application is stored in DB .
When someone comes to see it, a script (SWFObject and some
server-side) checks if this user have proper flash player installed.
If not (or if this is SE), they will see HTML version.
And, as the text for this HTML version is taken from the same DB
records, it is preferably that I use LI for list which is standard/SE
compliant way to go.

This is why I am stick to using LI, not just any bullet.

More suggestions?

bug that's worth checking for?


Or: Is there a document anywhere that lists what changed in the minor  
version updates to FP7?

Re: [Flashcoders] RE: Flashcoders Digest, Vol 16, Issue 100

2006-05-31 Thread Josh Santangelo
If you want to make your own DataGrid header row and still retain  
sorting functionality, make each header a button with code which  
calls something like:


dg.content_mc.header_mc.hO1.onRelease();

dg is your datagrid, and the 1 is the index of the column. Note  
that's a letter-o before it, not number-zero.

Interestingly, your solution for the header is one that I actually  
resorted to, but then I lose all of that nifty functionality, like  
sorting, column size, and other bells and whistles.


I see what you are saying about enhancing the colors to envelop the  
rows that go together (making them appear as one row).  That's a  
good idea, I'll have to see how/if I can get that to work.  I just  
don't quite know how to trick that data into working that way -  
like, does it need to happen in Perl, or in AS, or both? :-)


Any other ideas on how to do a multi-line header bar in a Data Grid  
and multi-line returned rows, I'd be thrilled to entertain them!


Thanks for your suggestions!

You may be better off turning off the header and creating your own
header that replicates what you want.  Then set up the datagrid to  
show

the rows correctly.  If you can't put all the information within a
single row, you may want to use the enhance grid and have it set the
back ground colors for rows that go together (i.e. rows 1-4 would  
be the

same record, rows 5 - 9, etc...)

Just my 2 cents...

[Flashcoders] Shared font symbols, dynamic text fields, and Flash Player 7

2006-05-30 Thread Josh Santangelo
I'm working on a site which uses shared font symbols in both static and 
dynamic text fields. In FP8, both work great. In FP7, only static text 
fields work. I'm wondering if anyone knows the secret trick to get 
dynamic ones to work as well.


Things I've tried:

- The SWF with the symbol exported is definitely loading before the SWF 
which is importing it

- Embedding all characters in a dynamic textfield in the source SWF
- Embedding all characters in a dynamic textfield in the target SWF
- Setting embedFonts to true on the target textfield

Any bright ideas?

thanks,
-josh

Re: [Flashcoders] Re: NumericStepper in CellRender disappears and gets 256 levels of recursion...

2006-05-30 Thread Josh Santangelo

There's a multiline CellRenderer in the Flash 8 documentation.

http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/8/main/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/ 
html/wwhelp.htm?context=LiveDocs_Partsfile=3131.html


(Or just search CellRenderer in the Help panel.)

I made one based on this code and it worked fine, the only trick  
being setting the rowHeight of the component to the height of the  
largest row you need to display.

Really, CellRenderers are so annoying to put together if you don't  
fool around with DataGrids often, it would be a mammoth boon to  
have all the basic possible ones covered -- ComboBox,  
NumericStepper, RadioButton, CheckBox, etc.
