[Flashcoders] strange TypeError: Error #1034:

2009-06-25 Thread Preston Parris
Hey all,

I have three buttons set up that are tweening in on the timeline, they each
are movieclips with the same associated class, two of the buttons work and
have no problems, the other one give me:

TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert
flash.display::moviec...@3b70b431 to
com.mellowmushroom.ui.about.AboutLandingButton.

I have made sure that the instance names and movieclip are the same through
out the animation, I even tried creating an entirely new clip and not
animating at all, I still get the same thing.

The other wierd thing is that the button still works even though it gives me
an error, like the properties that are set in the AboutLandingButton class
still apply and work for that button.

This is driving me crazy, any help in the right direction would be very
awesome. Thank you!

[Flashcoders] facebook as3 api logging in without javascript popup/redirect

2009-04-20 Thread Preston Parris
So I have been messing with the flash as3 facebook api, what I am trying to
achieve is logging in to facebook without using the javascript pop up, or
the browser redirect to the facebook connect page. I would just like to type
in a username and password for facebook within the flash app. I have
extensively searched google for this, the only thing similar i have found is
this:

http://blog.vixiom.com/2008/01/10/log-into-facebook-with-adobe-air-without-leaving-the-desktop/
but this is written for adobe air, and apparently the method it uses to do
this is the HTML component , that is an air only thing. Does anyone know of
a way to do this in flash with as3? I can't use flex for this project
either.

Thank you for any help.

Does anyone have a good example of loading thumbnails from flickr, and then
once you click on that thumbnail, loading a larger version of the picture
from flickr still in the flash. Everything i have found links to the flickr
page after showing the thumbnails.

2009-04-13 Thread Preston Parris
Hey all,
has anyone messed with the chromeless youtube player in flash? the best way
I can find to do this is the tubeloc package, I have successfully built the
as3 flash package with ant and the flex builder sdk, but It doesnt seem to
actually load the movie, nor does it provide an fla for the main swf. Anyone

[Flashcoders] as3 rollover rolloff issue..

2009-04-02 Thread Preston Parris
So basically I have a bunch of thumbnail images set up in a grid form, each
is the same movieclip just multiple instances of it. This movie clip has a
rollover and rolloff state that basically scales the image up, this is done
with external as that loops through and creates the event listeners for each
one. If i roll over a movie clip and then roll off at normal speed,
everything works as intended, the old one scales down to normal size, and
then new one scales up. The issue comes when you quickly roll off and then
back on. The movieclip gets stuck in scaling down to about half way. Any
ideas on how to fix this? Also I dont want to remove all of the event
listeners for the other clips until it scales back down because it would
take away from the visual effect.

thank you!

[Flashcoders] Scrollable Text Input Field?

2008-11-06 Thread Preston Parris
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to create a text input
field with a custom scrollbar, I have everything set up , I have my custom
scrollbar, and a text input field that scrolls when you move the scroller
thumb. The problem is that since it is a text input field, I need to be able
to detect when the text field fills up, so that I can move the scrollbar to
the bottom. Also when you highlight the text and move it up I need to be
able to have it scroll back up. I have my _input.onChanged function set up,
I just need to know what to do inside of here.

thank you!

[Flashcoders] grey line around ComboBox?

2008-11-04 Thread Preston Parris
Firstly I would like to thank everyone who has replied to my previous
questions, if your answers have not solved my problem they have definitely
led me in the right direction.
I have a ComboBox that is completely styled with
_global.styles.ComboBox.etc.   and I have a custom RectBorder class set
up. I am working on a mac, in as2 , exporting for as2 and flashplayer 8.
When I export and run in the browser, and then tab to the drop downs,
everything works correctly. When I open up the same swf on a windows
machine, a grey border outlining the drop down fully opened appears when I
tab. What is this border? why is it only showing up on a pc, and more
importantly how can I get rid of it? just changing the theme color, or
bordercolor does not work.

thank you.

content should be yet nothing is there, also my font styling for this box

[Flashcoders] TextInput highlight color when set to blend layer mode

2008-10-30 Thread Preston Parris
I have a MovieClip with a text input component on top of a white box with
grey border. In order to get the text inside of the Text Input component to
be able to fade in and out I had to set the entire movie clip to blend mode
layer. After doing this, when I click on the text input field the text
cursor does not show up, and the highlight color of the text is white,
everything is white actually. I'm wondering if there is a way to get this
back to the default highlight color, or if there is another way to fade in
and out the text input, the actual text input fades out but not the text
inside if I don't set it to layer.
Thank you!
