RE: [Flashcoders] ColorTransform GTween

2009-04-10 Thread Paul Venton
Taken a look at the comments on here:
http://www.gskinner.com/blog/archives/2008/08/gtween_a_new_tw.html after a
quick search on Google.

coltw:GTween = new GTween(theclip.transform.colorTransform, 0.5, {
redOffset:255, greenOffset:255, blueOffset:255 }, { ease:Circular.easeOut }
);
coltw.setAssignment(theclip.transform, colorTransform);


I've not tested it since I use TweenLite/Max - it should at least give you
some idea.

Hi Michael,
   The PDF specification is here:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/pdf/pdf_reference.html

AS3 is perfectly capable of reading it and pulling it apart via the
ByteArray class, although you'd have to write the code to do that.

However, you would need to load the entire PDF into the AS3 app to do so.

If this is a web client application, I'd recommend doing the parsing
serverside - there are a number of libraries for various server-side
languages for reading PDF data.

Then it doesn't matter if you're using AS2 or AS3.

HTH,

Hi,

I have a project where I need the client to be able to view documents in the

person viewing the document can never save the file and can never get their
hands on it in order to email it to someone etc.

It seems to me that a Flash viewer would be well suited to this kind of
control. However I am not quite sure how to go about it. Is there a Flash
implementation of a viewer that supports these file formats? Would I need to
pre-process the files and put them into swf format?

Has anybody had to do anything similar?

RE: [Flashcoders] AS3 ROLL_OVER or MOUSE_OVER ? Which one, and why ?

2007-09-08 Thread Paul Venton
From the docs:

The purpose of the rollOver event is to simplify the coding of rollout 
behaviors for display object containers with children. When the mouse leaves 
the area of a display object or the area of any of its children to go to an 
object that is not one of its children, the display object dispatches the 
rollOver event. This is different behavior than that of the mouseOver event, 
which is dispatched each time the mouse enters the area of any child object of 
the display object container, even if the mouse was already over another child 
object of the display object container.

RE: [Flashcoders] caching loaded swfs and jpegs

2007-09-07 Thread Paul Venton
You could use:

var urlNoCache:String = (System.capabilities.playerType == External ? ?
+ getTimer(): );
  
Appending urlNoCache to your url will only add a string when played in an
external player or test movie.  Testing in anything else creates an empty
string.  Substitute getTimer with whatever random generator you choose.

Subject: [Flashcoders] caching loaded swfs and jpegs

I have 2 questions about the caching of loaded files:

I'm building a wrapper movie around the Loader and ProgressBar classes.  
During testing from within Flash, once I've loaded a file it remains 
cached by the Flash Player.  This makes it hard to test the loader.  
I've had to add a random number after the file name 
(?+String(Math.random()) in order to get a fresh download each time.  
Isn't there a better way to clear the cache?

Because I'm using AS2, I can't dynamically change the parent of a media 
clip when I need it, but I'd like to preload any anticipated media into 
a buffer clip before they actually get displayed in the UI.  So, if I 
load something into a buffer clip and then later load the same address 
into the UI clip, will the cached data be good to go?  There's probably 
a better way to do this.  I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks!

Hello again, a more difficult question maybe...

Is there any way for me to capture a user click on an href tag inside of 
a CSS formatted html text field?

Here is what I do:
- CDATA formatted text in an XML file.
- load it and associate a CSS file to a generated text field at run time.
- resulting a tags have links assigned to them.
- user 'clicks' them - event capture??

In other words: what I need to do is to hear the event so I can dispatch 
an event to my Controller class [who then sends info to the stats class, 
and opens a browser window with predetermined formatting].

At the moment I can't see a way for this event to be heard by my 
controller. Maybe this is simple? maybe its impossible, or complex... 
any ideas? Javascript maybe?

Thanks for your help!

 in actionscript (1 or 2) you can use the notation :
 
 a href=asfunction:myMethod,param1,param2Link/a
 
 In your code... in the parent of your textfield (the parent movieclip), you
 can creates the method myMethod 
 
 example :
 
 var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat(arial, 12) ;
 format.bold = true ;
 
 var target:MovieClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip(mc, 1) ;
 target._x = 25 ;
 target._y = 25 ;
 target.myMethod = function( arg1, arg2 )
 {
trace( callback :  + arg1 +  :  + arg2) ;
 }
 
 var field:TextField  = target.createTextField( field, 1, 0 , 0, 200, 
 20) ;
 field.autoSize = true ;
 field.border = true ;
 field.setNewTextFormat( format ) ;
 field.html = true ;
 field.htmlText = 'a href=asfunction:myMethod,param1,param2Link/a' ;
 
 You can use TextField.StyleSheet to apply a css style in your fields 
 etc
 
 Read the actionscript reference with the words TextField and asfunction :)

RE: [Flashcoders] HTML in XML

2006-08-11 Thread Paul Venton
Crazy talk my arse!  ;-)

I've used XML with HTML and CSS to drive several commercial products I've
developed.  So long as all tags are correctly terminated it makes sense to
use XML; where do you think XHTML came from?

XML is, by nature, a portable document that can be used and interpreted by
other programs.  You only use CDATA as a last resort as it can be a real
pain to process in some other languages.  Flash Player doesn't even
recognise CDATA nodes as a type; only element and text nodes.

With XML, you know the structure of the document you're working with as it
is defined at some point.  If I know that all data inside my content element
is XHTML then I only need to fetch its contents or rather its child nodes.

 Another way that works pretty well is to do a join on the child nodes.

 So your trace would look like this:

 trace(newsNode.childNodes[i].childNodes.join());

 As long as your html is xml compliant (br/ instead of br) it will
 work just fine.

RE: [Flashcoders] Class Silent

2006-08-05 Thread Paul Venton
Well for starters, your fadeObj method defines a parameter which has the
same name as your public variable.

Also, it appears that your onEnterFrame contains a reference to mc that
doesn't exist in its scope; perhaps using a Delegate helper would solve
that, or simply change it to this since the method belongs to your mc
anyway.

Although this could just be a typo, where you're instantiating your class,
you're missing a ( after the class name.

Hope that helps get you back on track - good luck!

[Flashcoders] Printing a swf from inside a text field

2006-08-01 Thread Paul Venton
Hello

 

I'm building a Flash 8 application that parses XML files containing HTML and
a separate CSS file to build its various layouts using homebrew components.
So far I'm having a wail of time as almost everything has been working as
expected.

 

One of this project's requirements is that pop-up windows can contain
graphics and/or text so for simplicity I've used a text field to dynamically
load in whatever is relevant to that pop-up.  Some of those graphics are
embedded SWF files; they have their own control for printing and that's
where my problem begins.

 

The printable SWF libraries contain linkage ids for the print target clip
along with links a shared print button clip. The print button, when
clicked, creates the page layout with headers and footers and attaches the
print target, scaling and rotating as needed to fit properly on a piece of
paper.  It all works fine when the SWF is not embedded in a text field,
however when embedded, the printed page is clipped to the boundaries of the
text field that the SWF is in.

 

I've tried creating the page using a container elsewhere (i.e. at various
_parent's up to get above the text field object) but if I do that then
nothing shows at all; yet I know the print page is being created as I have
access to all of the objects in it.

 

I am aware that the text field object has problems, such as showing inline
images, and have tried things like adding a few dozen line breaks in the
HTML but to no avail.

 

The only bit of luck I have had is to set the parent or the embedded SWF
(the text field) mask to null.  The complete page prints out perfectly.
However, I cannot reapply the text field's mask as I don't know what it's
called.  Unfortunately there is no getMask() method.

 

So, does anyone know a workaround or know what the name of the object the
text field uses to mask its contents?

 

Please help as I'm rapidly running out of hair to pull!  I've searched the
archives and haven't been able to spot anything related to this.  (I have
local copy of every Flash Coder email going back to early 2002 so that
should be early enough!)

 

Thanks in advance

 

Paul
