Re: [Flashcoders] Q: Performance of AS3 vs Java

2006-12-07 Thread Scott Hyndman

I vote for Java/OpenGL. Skip on Processing -- it's way too limiting
unless you drop their IDE and directly import the related jars. I
recently completed a project using LWJGL (http://www.lwjgl.org) and it
was blistering fast. In fact, I'm going to be open-sourcing it
sometime today if you're interested. It was a game, but I wrote lots
of code that could be applied anywhere, including tweening and shape
primitive drawing tools.

You could also do this:

Re: [flashmn] [flashcoders] Flash 8 - Custom databinding

2006-09-19 Thread Scott Hyndman

I wrote a databinding system for ActionStep that wraps setters with
proxy functions that notify observers whenever a change is detected.
All you have to do, you replace the setter method with your own that
dispatches the change event, then call the original. This system is
also reliant upon the use of the setters internally set things,
otherwise it will not detect all changes. It's modelled after Cocoa's
key-value observation framework, which is in my opinion the defacto
standard for binding. It's a great system, and not nearly as
complicated as MM's or other similar systems.

Re: [Flashcoders] specifying type of an array contents?

2006-09-16 Thread Scott Hyndman

for...in loops don't work the same as they do in Java or C#. Take a
look at the following code:

for (var key in btnClipArray) {
 btnClipArray[key].removeMovieClip();
}

The loop iterates over keys, not values This technique is not limited
to arrays and can be used on any object in Flash.

Flash assumes items held in arrays are objects. You can call any
method on them, without the compiler complaining. There is no way to
type arrays.

Re: [Flashcoders] Slow performance

2006-09-04 Thread Scott Hyndman

I would also try to avoid string concatenation. It's usually a big
performance issue, since strings are immutable (so a sequential block
of memory has to be allocated, and the strings you are joining are
copied to the new location).

I would draw an entire page up front, then just reveal as you go
through masking or an mc overlaying the text.

 If you're looking to improve performance and keep the speed of your
 animation, you could experiment with BitmapData.draw() and render a bitmap
 copy of a hidden text movieclip.  I think the bottleneck is mostly due to
 the heavy font vectors.  If your font movieclip was hidden and/or moved
 off-stage, you could probably get away with a single BitmapData object set
 to the size of the screen, redrawing each time the text changes.

yes, you are. If you read the first two paragraphs of the wikipedia

It has to do with multiple objects (poly) being contrained by the same
interface (form, morph), whether the interface is quite literally an
interface, or whether it is an interface determined by a parent class.

well, I get Interfaces, but thanks for explaining :).

I just don't think actionscript, or java, has any polymorphism,
since the definition of that is, in my opinion, a class having more
than one parent class (ie, can extend 2 or more classes), which
isn't the case. So I don't understand why people who are explaining
oop in actionscript talk about polymorphism, because it just
isn't there :), but perhaps I'm wrong.

You could remove the line breaks from your XML file. \r is a carriage
return. In Windows, it accompanies a newline character when someone
presses enter.

Re: [Flashcoders] clone object

2006-08-24 Thread Scott Hyndman

I would mark each object (by actually assigning the cloned object as a
property of the original) as I go through each individual clone
operation, and keep a running array of what is being marked. If I hit
something that is already marked, I will use the clone instead of
copying the same object again (because it's hanging off the original).
When I'm finished, I'd remove all the temporary properties from the
originals.

This requires two method instead of one, and is a bit more CPU
intensive, but it won't break.

I'd also be sure to special case the handling of date objects.

The alternative is to shallow clone, which does not recursively copy
object properties, and instead assigns the reference held by the
original to the clone.

Hi list!

I don't understand one issue of RegExp framework:

the illustrative example:

var pattern:RegExp = /(a)|(ab)/

pattern.exec(nnnabnnn);
trace (result[0]) // output a
pattern = /(ab)|(a)/
pattern.exec(nnnabnnn);
trace (result[0]) // output ab

Why this behaviour? shouldn't RegExp return the longest pattern founded in
the string?.

Calling exec several times with first expression never return ab

It's supossed that conditional operator | is conmutative.

Any idea?

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash/Actionscript Coding conventions

2006-08-23 Thread Scott Hyndman

If you're using eclipse, just use Ctrl+7 to comment a block out using
double slashes. Doing it again removes them. This feature works in FDT
and JDT. CDT uses Ctrl+\ instead I believe.

So I do hear what you're saying, but tools can easily get around
problems like this.

And people do read docs. I do regularly. If you're ever dealing with a
complex framework (Swing, Eclipse...or anything really) you have to
read the docs to understand what's going on. Especially because in
some cases because warnings are made to not override this or that
(soft finals). Just look at the .NET framework. The code just isn't
available. How else can you understand what's going on?

Scott

On 23/08/06, Steven Sacks | BLITZ [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 Experienced coders who don't want to take the time to trawl through

If you write impenetrable code, you need to reevaluate your career
choice.  If you're not willing to put forth the effort to be great at
what you do, especially in something as sensitive as programming, then
do something else for a living.  No amount of documentation can make up
for bad code, and a bad coder isn't going to write good documentation
anyway!  ;)

And to the point about Javadoc, I'm not going to ruin my code and
handicap my debugging ability to satisfy some poorly thought out
requirement of a 3rd party tool.  They require you to use block
commenting in your code to automatically write documentation and that's
counterproductive to actual coding.  It should work hand in hand with
not diametrically opposed to the coding process.  If they were smart
about it, they would support line commenting with non-asterisk
delimiters.  Say //! !//, or //| |// or //[ ]//, etc.  Exclamations,
pipes, and brackets are all better choices because they do not conflict
with anything.

I'm not going to make my process suffer nor am I going to litter my code
with ugly asterisks just to document my work when I can spend that
energy writing cleaner, easier to read code with light commenting in the
code itself.   :)

Re: [Flashcoders] Possible Challenge: AS 3.0 Compiler :)

Can flex compiler run inside the Flash 9 plugin? I didn't think so...


No need to be snappy. I didn't understand. I suppose you could write
it using the new byte array stuff, but I don't understand why it would
be of any use to anyone. If you want something compiled it would make
a lot more sense to get a serverside language to call the compiler.


Possibly for geek points?


A compiler is a lot of work. If you have time to kill, why not spend
it on something worthwhile.

It does. It's just been updated.

The problem I was having was that SWT password boxes on Intel Macs

If you write any JSP/Servlets/J2EE stuff, be sure to check out WTP. It
makes life a lot easier. The deployment stuff is great.

Re: [SPAM?] RE: [Flashcoders] XPcomponents set

coding a component framework, and one that's not too shabby. Sure, it
doesn't work with MM's framework, but who cares? V2 is garbage
anyways.

I somehow doubt he would sell his components if people knew ahead of

means you can't work using your own methods, nor can you put his

 In my case, over last couple of weeks, I have received no response to

 just asked for some examples/help, but I'm sure my later messages must
 have

IMO, it's a scam.  But, that's just my opinion.  You can formulate your
own. By the way, the author is on Flashcoders (or at least was a year

they are, he'll chime in.

 Subject: RE: [Flashcoders] XPcomponents set

 What is not entirely clear on the website is that the XPComponents are
 NOT designed to be used as standalone components in YOUR application,
 but are meant to be used when you build applications using the
 DEVELOPERS' EXACT framework.

 We paid for the components but found out very quickly that they
wouldn't
 work for us because they caused all kinds of issues with Selection,
 tabIndex, and other non-XP components.

 I don't want this to sound disparaging, as the author of the
components
 was very helpful when I asked him about the issues I was having,
 however, I disagree with his approach.  The website doesn't explain
 clearly that you cannot just throw one of his components in your movie
 and expect it to work, or that using his components in your movie can
 break your existing code and won't get along with other components
(MMs
 or other 3rd party ones) or even with Flash's native code (like
 Selection and tabIndex).  You MUST use the exact framework he has
 developed from the get go.  To me, it's kind of misleading to simply
 call them components, since you're actually purchasing a framework
which
 contains custom components to work within that framework.

 If you're looking for great, lightweight, skinnable components you can
 just throw into your existing code, I recommend the Ghostwire
components
 set.  I have had a lot of success with them.  They're written in AS1
but
 AS2 compiles as AS1 anyway and their ease of use, skinnability, and
 ability to get along with your existing code make them a winner in my
 book.

It's not just MM's components it doesn't work with, it's Flash in

When you put ANY of their components in your movie, the following Flash
native code no longer works.

Selection.setFocus
TextField.tabIndex

Like I mentioned before, they are amazingly helpful and polite.  It
doesn't change the fact that their components don't work standalone,
that you must code how they tell you to code and use their framework to
code all your Flash applications, that it's not made clear that this is
a requirement for using their components prior to purchase, and they and
everyone else here know full well that pretty much no one would buy
their components if they knew ahead of time about this restriction, yes,
it's a scam.

Just because you put a lot of hard work into something doesn't
automatically make it valuable.

Re: RE: [SPAM?] RE: [Flashcoders] XPcomponents set

2006-06-29 Thread Scott Hyndman

Thinking about it again, I think you're right on one point.  There's
certainly no reason that using their framework should break native Flash
code.  That's just sloppy.  But, as it is a framework, I think it's totally
legit that it makes you do certain things certain ways.


I wouldn't say XPComponents _breaks_ native code...it just chooses not
to use it, abstracting it away into an API that they designed
themselves. In my opinion this is perfectly acceptable and maybe even
desirable if additional functionality is provided as a result.

Re: [Flashcoders] Programmatically instantiating a class that extends MovieClip.

2006-06-29 Thread Scott Hyndman

That's exactly what I mean. As a result you can do cool things like
reparenting -- like moving a button from one window to another. It
handles the MovieClip creation itself.

A code example really isn't too easy, because the framework that
allows this to be possible is quite large. If you were really
interested, you could look at the code. Here's a link:

http://tinyurl.com/jqtwv

It's a gigantic class...so it might be difficult to work through. The
important method is createMovieClips(), which is called when a view
(the type of object that encapsulates movieclips) moves to a new
superview.

So you never really subclass movieclip, you use composition instead.  In
other words, your class has a movieclip, but it isn't a movieclip.,,

Is that what you mean, or am I missing the point?  Can you give a small code
example?

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash Player 9 Public Beta for Apple Intel-based Macintosh computers

2006-06-29 Thread Scott Hyndman

It's the simultaneous new version rollout of 10 Eclipse projects. A
lot of the projects are very cool, but the important one for me is
Eclipse 3.2. The current version of Ecilpse has some problems on Intel
Macs due to its reliance on SWT (which relies on native code). These
should be resolved in this new version.

I'm also looking forward to the new TPTP (a plugin for testing the
performance of applications, and not just ones that are written in
Java). It will not work on the Intel Mac, but since our servers are
not running OSX it doesn't matter. Support for the Mac is planned for
the next version too.

Re: [Flashcoders] Double-rendered Text

2006-06-14 Thread Scott Hyndman

Sounds like you're recreating textfields without removing the old
ones. It may sound stupid, but in my personal experience it's one of
the most commonly encountered bugs while working in Flash. I've
already fixed two like that today!

If you're working in the IDE, step through the code to make sure
you're calling removeTextField() wherever necessary.

The other option is that there is a problem with your layout code and
the textfields overlap as a result. If this is the case, you may find
it helpful to give your textfields borders (just for debugging
purposes). If that doesn't help, trace out coordinates and do hit
tests. You'll get it.

Re: [Flashcoders] Command line compile

2006-06-14 Thread Scott Hyndman

Oh, sorry about that. Didn't read carefully enough.

I don't think there is a solution given your contraints...but I'm
going to offer my two cents. Forget MM's compiler. It might as well be
unsupported. Tech support will cost a fortune to speak to and I'm
pretty sure they wouldn''t be able to fix your problems anyway.

Switch to MTASC. Convince whoever you're working for that it's a good
idea. Your life will be easier and consequently, so will everyone
elses. I've been using it for more than a year building major
libraries (ActionStep -- http://tinyurl.com/lupmv) and at this point
there is absolutely nothing to worry about. A large and well-versed
user base will be right at your fingertips. Lots of coders were fed up
with MMC a long time ago, and are now happily enjoying Flash
development again.

Hope you didn't mind the rant, good luck,
Scott

Re: [Flashcoders] How to hide SWF Assets from Internet users

2006-06-07 Thread Scott Hyndman

You could hold the swfs in a database (or in some datastore only
accessible to the server), then serve out the swfs through Java or PHP
(or any other serverside language). Authenticate each map request with
a username / password in the query string. If you wanted to prevent
that username / password from being seen (by people watching the
line), use HTTPS.

On 6/7/06, Bieniasz, Myles [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

One way is to use the _url property, which will point to the .swf's

Subject: [Flashcoders] How to hide SWF Assets from Internet users

Hello All,

I have an intense situation right now, and I must come up with an answer
ASAP.

I wrote a map viewer application for my client, in which my viewer can
load .swf Vector Maps from a predetermined directory on the server.
From within my viewer, the users can perform drill-down queries, by
selecting contents of multiple dropdown boxes - State, Region, then Lake
Name.  Paid subscribers, have full access to their maps - but it's
imperative that they can ONLY view these maps from within the viewer
app.

Since the Flash Map Viewer, needs to retrieve these maps from the server
using a public URL (unless I am overlooking something), how can I hide
these maps from the world - if the outside users are able to figure out
which path to type into their browser, and snatch up maps?

I know that server-side scripts, can access local resources - like
D:\Documents, etc. - but once the Map Viewer is running from a Remote
Browser, how can I bury these maps under some type of file system that
is not directly accessible by the outside world (but only through the
Map Viewer app)???

Also, once the user views a particular map, how can I prevent the
map.swf file from being Cached on their hard drive?

If any of you could help me out regarding this, I'd be very
appreciative.

Thanks,

Mike

Re: [Flashcoders] How do real developers do key handling?

2006-06-06 Thread Scott Hyndman

Not exactly a real hascode though.

In Java for example, two distinct yet identical (in composition)
objects will result in the same hashcode. In Vegas, the hashes will be
different because the number is generated incrementally.

Their map implementation is pretty strange as well and does not lend
itself to a large number of entries. Access would be very slow after
awhile.

Better off to use object instances as maps. Since the example you show
shows that you are mapping with String keys, it should be fine.

Scott

On 6/6/06, Bart Wttewaall [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

The open-source Vegas framework at osflash.org makes use of a hashmap.
Since every Object extends of CoreObject, a hashcode is added to every
object. A nice solution, I think.

HashCode.initialize(CoreObject.prototype) ;

2006/6/7, Kevin Aebig [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
 Well the code that your friend is suggesting is pretty straightforward and
 you could port it over to AS2 if you wanted. Instead of a hashMap, why not
 just use an associative array? I'm pretty sure that I've seen a hash class
 ripping around from either Brandan Hall or Samuel Wan based off of an
 associative array.

 All in all, the code could be ported over with minimal effort... but there
 would be some area's that you would need to be creative with.

 // Create a new ChannelInput object and add a few keys to its map
 ChannelInput ci1 = new ChannelInput();
 ci1.addKey(1, new SimpleKeyHandler());
 ci1.addKey(2, new AnotherSimpleKeyHandler());

 // Now handle some keys with this puppy
 ci1.processKey(1);
 ci1.processKey(2);

 // Create a SECOND ChannelInput object, and add some different
 keys/handlers
 ChannelInput ci2 = new ChannelInput();
 ci2.addKey(3, new AnotherSimpleKeyHandler());
 ci2.addKey(4, new SimpleKeyHandler());

 ci2.processKey(3);
 ci2.processKey(4);

 // Finally - should get an error if a ChannelInput gets unmapped key
 ci2.processKey(1);
   }
 }

 import java.util.HashMap;

 public class ChannelInput {
   private HashMap handlerMap = null;

   ChannelInput() {
 handlerMap = new HashMap();
   }

   public void addKey(String key, KeyHandler handler) {
 handlerMap.put(key, handler);

   public void processKey(String key) {
 KeyHandler handler = (KeyHandler) handlerMap.get(key);

 if (handler == null) {
   System.out.println(ERROR: null handler for key \ + key + \);
 } else {
   handler.handleKey(key);
 }
   }

 public class SimpleKeyHandler implements KeyHandler {
   public void handleKey(String key) {
 System.out.println(SimpleKeyHandler Key  + key +  was pressed);
 // Action for this key goes here

 jsConnection = (ExternalIntervace != null) ? callEI : callGetURL;

  For all intents and purposes, this is a private class that won't be

  Is there a way to do a conditional import based on published version,
  instead of runtime version?  I often use $version to detect major
  version of play to handle other functionality, but as you all know
  External Interface breaks if not published in 8.
 
  OR better yet, could I simply just copy the file to the FP7 folder and
  fake it?
 
  Does this make sense or am I smoking crack here?

You can still load external assets as needed, but you have full access to
the library of your main SWF.  It works well too if you need to create
projects that need to be compiled with *both* MTASC and Flash IDE.

Not sure I folow how you're doing this.  When you load an external clip, you
can't do attachMovieClip, etc.

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash/Eclipse Workflow

2006-06-04 Thread Scott Hyndman

If I'm understandung this...
You add the IDE generated swf (IDE.swf) to the project. You then
create an external class that has a 'main' entry point  and it loads
the IDE.swf. (with a preloader of course).


Correct


Do I have this right? Sounds good, though the test will be can I
impliment it myself. You could also break IDE.swf into several
library1.swf, library2.swf and load them seperately, to spread out the
load, couldn't you?


No, unfortunately not. Assets are only available to use from the
closest loaded parent. Let me explain with a little picture.

shell.swf (where all your classes most likely reside)
|
|-assets.swf (loaded by shell.swf)
  |
  |---movieclips that can access assets.swf library
  |
  |---assets2.swf
   |
   |movieclips that can access
assets2.swf (but not assets.swf)

It's limited by this parent cut-off idea, but it is still very useful
for getting IDE generated assets into my MTASC generated projects.

You can split this up a bit further even by including your classes in
a separate swf. The limitations shown above do not apply to loaded
classes. As soon as they are loaded, they are available.

Hope this helps,
Scott


this sounds similar to the Natural Entry Point method. Do you
instanciate the entry point class? If it extends MovieClip, then it
could also serve as _root, couldn't it? I'm searching for examples as
we speak...write?... Im close, thankis for the help

Probably nothing.. Just lack of experience on my part. The class is now

  public function insert(obj:Object):Void {
  trace(Mailbox:: Insert)
mailbox.addElement(obj);
numMessages++;

  public function remove() {
while (numMessages == 0) {
  try {
//wait();
  } catch (e:Error) {
  }
}

var obj:Object = mailbox.firstElement();
mailbox.removeElementAt(0);
numMessages--;

RE: [Flashcoders] HashMap?

2006-05-14 Thread Scott Hyndman
Well, yes.

Now that I think about it my test didn't make much sense, since there would be 
no way of determining how keys are generated by insertions alone...I was 
assuming a uniform distribution, and it can't be done without knowing more.

But I believe that the Flash uses a tree to implement its map, for some of the 
same reasons you mentioned. It's just a way more efficient structure to use if 
your data is unknown, grows well, and stays balanced.

Wouldn't it be true to say that hash maps will get slower as the 
probability of collisions increase? As the primary area fills up, there 
will be more occasions when the new key to be added, hashes to a storage 
location already occupied and a link structure will be needed to store 
the key(s) in the overflow.
Similarly, lookups will start to hit links rather than data which will 
require that the links into the overflow area be followed.

This is where tuning comes in.

The fact that there are no tuning options makes it unlikely that hashing 
is used.
Defaults would be hard to set without wasting space or turning the whole 
thing into a small set of linked lists which work be long to search.
It would not be seem to be a very good choice for a default 
implementation of Arrays.

Wow, great question.

Needless to say, you can't figure these things out with vertices and edges 
alone, you're going to have to assign location to each vertex and use that to 
calculate the intersection...but that's where things get hazy. You probably 
don't want to brute force it, because your worst case gets bad. I'm sure there 
is some sort of clever math solution, but I've never been much of a 
mathematician.

So maybe you could do something visual. If your edges are drawn in one color, 
maybe you could check all the pixels in a line between the desired end points, 
and see if any of the pixels contain the edge color, in which case, don't allow 
the connection to be made.

I'll keep thinking about it though.

I have a request for a game called sprouts. The game starts with a few
randomly distributed dots. There is one move and 2 restrictions.
Move:   draw a line for a dot to itself (a loop) or to another dot.
Any line drawn has a new dot on it.
Restriction 1: no more than 3 lines from any dot.
Restriction 2: no lines can cross.

Simple game, but the data structure to keep track of the game and in
particular to handle restriction 2 is a bear. How do you tell when a
dot has been encircled by a line?

The game is, of course based on graph theory, and you can represent a
graph in several ways, but how to determine that it remains planar?

I haen't begun to think about the visual part of this, if I don't have
a reasonable data structure I can't teach a computer to play the game.

Any ideas? Hints? Wildly improbable ideas?

As I recall, Red5 leverages Spring. I know Spring.net exists, but it would be

I'd even consider starting the project until Red5 matures to at least
0.6, though tbh, I'm likely to wait til 0.9 - 1rc1.  Red5 is being
developed at such a staggering pace, that porting to C# at this stage
would be pointless and just create more work in the long run.

RE: [Flashcoders] Unity vs Flashcom for chat and messaging

FMS has web service support. Was this offered in FCS?

 FMS is limited insofar as serverside scripts must be written in
 a dialect of ActionScript that resembles AS1. You might not
 even consider that a limitation, as it is quite functional and
 scripts don't have to be too big most of the time, just don't
 expect a rich OOP language to work with.

The other thing that should be mentioned here is that FCS didn't play 
well with other servers (may have changed in FMS, I haven't upgraded yet). 
There are ways to interact with other servers, like databases and web 
servers, but none of them are easy or convenient. So the chat server is 
effectively in a sandbox, which may or may not matter at all for your 
purpose.

RE: [Flashcoders] Unity vs Flashcom for chat and messaging

2006-05-04 Thread Scott Hyndman
Hey Jim,

Unity, and similar socket servers (WebORB's messaging framework, ElectroServer, 
etc) all use XMLSocket to perform communication AFAIK. This can pose problems 
with firewalls between the client box and the server unless communication 
occurs on open ports. Also, communication is limited to text. Serialization of 
objects into text is quite possible, but you won't be able to transmit 
media-related data such as images (unless encoded), video or audio.

FMS not only allows the ability to broadcast text to other users and the 
server, but also supports video (incl. webcams) and audio (incl. microphones). 
Many of the native ActionScript objects have special features that work with 
FMS, and are documented quite well. The server supports storing objects, media 
and session data in files so they can persist between sessions. FMS is limited 
insofar as serverside scripts must be written in a dialect of ActionScript that 
resembles AS1. You might not even consider that a limitation, as it is quite 
functional and scripts don't have to be too big most of the time, just don't 
expect a rich OOP language to work with. 

FMS has a free version (up to 10 users) and other pricing plans exist to scale 
with any project you may have planned. Some see the prices as too expensive, 
but for any serious project they're really quite reasonable.

Hope that helps,
Scott

RE: [Flashcoders] Accessibility and MSAA - Is this documentedanywhere?

2006-04-26 Thread Scott Hyndman
I have read both those links previously. They offer no information about the 
IAccessible methods that I see in the mx.accessibility package.

Most information about these methods can be gleaned from the MSAA docs, 
replacing the pointer params with returns...but others, which seem to be 
specific to the Flash player's communication with screen readers, are 
completely undocumented. Still others have return types that don't easily map 
to the return types (or pointer params) of the corresponding IAccessible method.

 (I'm not sure I could answer any question that starts with What's the 
idea behind... would involve mindreading on my part, guessing the true 
question too.)

Well does anyone know at Adobe?

Simply put, there is this whole world of functionality the Flash player exposes 
that I'd like to get my hands on. I'd really appeciate it if you guys could 
help me out on this.

Are whose docs?

Read the followup emails ;)

Thanks,

Scott

RE: [Flashcoders] Split Pane component??

2006-04-06 Thread Scott Hyndman
You can't even compile this using the Flash IDE. ActionStep only works
with MTASC (and it's a good thing, it would probably take MMC a few
minutes to compile the framework).

Unfortunately, it is incompatible with V2 or any other
MovieClip-inherited components. Maybe not impossible, but it would make
your life quite a bit tougher. ActionStep works in a very different way,
but it's far more flexible. If you're comfortable with code, you should
definitely check it out on your next project. We're still in alpha, but
very close to breaking out!

If you need more information, feel free to contact me.

So, if you have something that you could throw my way that could help

It looks as if it's really mature, and has LOTS of great comments

[Flashcoders] Any Montreal-based companies around?

2006-04-06 Thread Scott Hyndman
Hi everyone,

I realize I run the risk of becoming very unpopular by posting this. I
apologize. I'm in a bit of a bind, and I thought that since I am pretty
involved with the community you'd find it in your hearts to let this
slide. :)

I was wondering if any Montreal-based companies were looking for summer
employees. A job that I was relying on fell through, so I'm a bit stuck.
Full-time, part-time or contract work are all fine.

So now a bit about me.

I attend the University of Toronto and am working towards a computer
science degree. I'm well-versed in all that is Flash. I've worked on
successful major projects, have built many custom components, and have
been working on an OSS application framework called ActionStep for the
past year. I'm also experienced in popular backend technologies
(ASP.NET, Java Servlets and JSP, PHP) as well as common RDBMSes. I love
Flash and I'd love to help you work on your Flash-based projects (or
just about anything else).

That's about it. If you're interested please email me off-list.

Thanks,

Scott Hyndman

RE: [Flashcoders] Architecture opinion...

2006-03-28 Thread Scott Hyndman
Bitwise arithmentic would be much more appropriate (if I understand correctly)

var CONFIG_A:Number = 1;
var CONFIG_B:Number = 2;
var CONFIG_C:Number = 4;
var CONFIG_D:Number = 8;

So a configuration of A and C would be.

var aAndC:Number = A | C;

To detect config numbers, do the following:

if (configNumber  CONFIG_D) {
  // do something to do with D
}
else if (configNumber  CONFIG_B) {
  // do something to do with B
}

This is way more extensible, as it's easy to add new configs.

Bitwise arithmentic would be much more appropriate (if I understand correctly)

var CONFIG_A:Number = 1;
var CONFIG_B:Number = 2;
var CONFIG_C:Number = 4;
var CONFIG_D:Number = 8;

So a configuration of A and C would be.

var aAndC:Number = A | C;

To detect config numbers, do the following:

if (configNumber  CONFIG_D) {
  // do something to do with D
}
else if (configNumber  CONFIG_B) {
  // do something to do with B
}

This is way more extensible, as it's easy to add new configs.

RE: [Flashcoders] Architecture opinion...

2006-03-28 Thread Scott Hyndman
yeah, sure. Any combination of numbers you want. Just make sure all of your 
CONFIG_* variables are ascending 2^n numbers (hence the bitwise, we're dealing 
with binary number reps here). So...

1
2
4
8
16
32
...and so on

You'll find that this technique is used frequently in many frameworks and 
standard libraries, so it's a good thing to understand if you ever choose to 
move away from Flash. The V2 Alert component even uses it to determine what 
buttons an Alert should display. And not to mention it's fast as hell. No 
lengthy array scans to determine configuration. :)

RE: [Flashcoders] Using onRollOver and onRollOut inside a Class File??

2006-03-28 Thread Scott Hyndman
It's not really up to the component developer to decide what may or may not be 
done with any control. Of course there are limits to this, but I would expect 
that with any visual component a roll over event is a reasonable thing to 
expect. Swing (MouseMoveListener), Cocoa (tracking rects), and the .NET 
framework (the MouseEnter event) all have support for this functionality.

I'm not coming down on V2. It's a basic framework for basic needs...I'm just 
saying.

My question to you would be, why would you expect a button to broadcast that

 Hello Michael - thanks for the reply -

 I guess my real question is, why isn't onRollOver and onRollOut
 natively part of the Events that the Button Components can broadcast?

 In the help docs, there is only 1 mentioned Event - which is click -

 It just seems odd, that I have to use one method of adding an Event
 Listener for Click, and a totally different type of Add Event Listener
 method for adding other types of events.

 Do you know why that is?

 Is it for the purpose of not reinventing the wheel, and borrowing events
 that already exist in other components, and applying it to others?  I
 know that all the components in Flash are reduced to their lowest common
 denominators - and that they import their core functions from other core
 classes - again, for the purpose of not having any redundant code  not
 reinventing the wheel.

 Thanks for your help on this, and to help me further understand how this
 all works.

  Hello All,
 
  I am getting very confused here, on how to get the onRollOver and
  onRollOut events to be broadcasted whenever the mouse moves over a
  Flash Component, contained within a MovieClip using a Class File.
 
  The component in this particular instance, is the Push Button.  When
  reading the documentation, the only events that are mentioned is the

  click event.  To my knowledge, when using a Class File attached to a

  MovieClip containing a Push Button component, there is only one type
  of syntax that can be used for adding listeners.
 
  For example:
 
myButton.addEventListener( click, myButton_Click );
 
  And you usually place this statement inside of the onLoad function of
  the MovieClip class itself.
 
  Then the function that handles the event, conforms to the method of
  how functions must be written inside of a Class File:
 
private function myButton_Click( evtObj:Object ):Void
{
//code here...
}
 
  Since you can't use a listener object (like you would if you were
  simply putting functions in the root of the movie itself), and then
  have a statement of listenerObject.onRollOver = function() within a
  Class File, I am wondering how I can force the onRollOver and
  onRollOut events to get properly broadcasted.
 
  Please keep in mind, I am trying to keep 100% of my code inside of my
  Class Files.  I know a simple solution could be simply highlighting
  the actual Push Button within the MovieClip, and then directly apply
  an on(event) function to temporarily accomplish my goals - but this
  totally defeats the purpose of creating a separation between Flash App

  and Source Code.
 
  I also looked at the SimpleButton.as Class File in which the Button.as

  Class is based on.  Oddly enough, there are onRollOver and
  onRollOut
  functions in there, but it doesn't Dispatch Events - it simply
  activates the highlight option when the user rolls over the button.

  I thought that was pretty weird...  I manually edited the Class File,
  so that a Dispatch Event of onRollOver and onRollOut would be
  broadcasted, but still no dice...
 
  Could any of you point me in the right direction, on how to accomplish

  this using only Class Files?  Since V2 components, AS 2.0, and Class
  Files are being pushed so hard as the preferred way of doing things,
  it simply baffles me why these other events wouldn't be available to
  the developer.  Sorry, but click just isn't doing it for me - I need

  more events out of my components.
 
  Thanks

Thanks Stacey,
 
Yes it seems you need to pass in the parameter of 'this' before the function 
name and time, although I couldn't find reference to this in any of the manuals 
I looked in. Maybe they all just speak of AS1 and not class use of setInterval.
 
_nInt = setInterval(this, myFunction, 100)  --- works in the class
nInt = setInterval(myFunction, 100) --- is how the manual describes the use of 
setInterval
 
Also, note the use of inverted commas around the function name in the first 
example above, they aren't required in a straight up .fla (non-class) like the 
second example above.
 
Thanks again,
Stephen.

RE: [Bulk] [Flashcoders] Extending a singleton

2006-03-23 Thread Scott Hyndman
Kind of flamebaity, but I'll bite.

I read that article, but this is just one man's opinions. I'm not saying he's 
wrong, but some of his points largely depend on the usage of the singleton 
itself (specifically #4). #2 kind of sounds like bullshit to me too. Sure, you 
can split a singleton into two classes, fine, one for creation and one for the 
class itself. I just don't see the point. Single responsibility deals with 
required changes. I don't see how the singleton aspect of the class would 
ever require a change (correct me if I'm wrong).

In fact, if you look at a lot of windowing toolkits for operating systems, you 
will see singleton usage scattered throughout.

Just a few I can think of offhand in Apple's Cocoa (a beautifully designed 
framework in my opinion):

Color panel
Font panel
...in fact, all panels
Application
User Defaults

It seems to me (because I've never run into any problems) that careful use of 
singletons is an okay thing to do. I agree that alot of people overuse them and 
try to force everything and anything into a singleton. I don't agree with that. 
I just think they have a place.

a good article:

I don't think the protected keyword exists in AS2, but if you have AS3, I'd

Subject: [Bulk] [Flashcoders] Extending a singleton


 Hi guys,

 I was wondering if anyone of you ever had a situation where it would be
 good to extend a singleton. The first question is: Is it good practice or
 should it be avoided at all cost?

 Anyway, I have been trying to extend one, but the problem is that instance
 variables are not accessible in the class that extends the singleton (and
 which is also a singleton).

 So for instance, take a class A that has a properties instance variable
 that holds key/value pairs. That var is initialized in the constructor.

 A.getInstance() gives me the single instance.

 B extends A, and B.getInstance() gives me the single instance of B. But
 since it extends A, A's constructor is called (although it is private, a
 camouflaged protected in AS2) and the properties var is instantiated
 again. Get the picture? B will have a properties instance var but it will
 not be the same as the one in the singleton of A.

 Am I overlooking something very obvious here or is this actually hard to
 accomplish? I changed it from inheritance to using A.getInstance()
 internally which works; but now I have to add wrapper methods for every
 method in A/ /I want to make available.

 thx in advance,
 Christophe

This is due to the ECMAScript algorithm for determining equality. You'll find 
that JavaScript behaves the same way. Date objects are not primitives, so they 
will only compare as equal if both Date variables reference the same Date 
object (i.e. var d2 = d1;)

The ECMAScript algorithms for = and =, however, convert both operands to 
Number before the comparison. Date objects converted to the Number data type 
gives you the number of milliseconds since the epoch.

The upshot is that to test for equality of Date objects, either convert them to 
numbers first or use valueOf():

trace (Number(d1) == Number(d2));
trace (d1.valueOf() == d2.valueOf());

 Don't know why I haven't come across this before, but can anyone confirm
 this for me (and maybe give an explanation)?
 
 code
 var d1:Date = new Date( 1970, 0 );
 var d2:Date = new Date( 1970, 0 );
 trace( d1 == d2 ); // false
 trace( d1 = d2 ); // true
 trace( d1 = d2 ); // TRUE?!
 /code
 
 Umm… If something is both = *and* = the only possibly is that it is
 equal. So… WTF?

RE: [Flashcoders] Browse folders from flash

2006-03-22 Thread Scott Hyndman
 I am worried about using socket communication, while I have never tested it,
I am afraid some people's software firewalls might flag or block the
communication.

As I understood it, this application will be running locally...in which case, 
firewalls don't even come into it.

In any case, the suggestions to use the swf wrappers are good ones if you don't 
know Java.

 Scott, I'm not sure java could explore local client machine directories.

Java can have full control over your local machine, but the user has to
approve the access first (You have to sign the applet, and then the user
will see a security warning dialog). One this access is approved, you can do
ANYTHING. You could download an arbitrary .exe file from some url and
execute it silently. You could delete random files off their hard drive. So,
make sure your users trust you.
I believe there is also a way to grant only specific privlidges,

Maybe...but it would be a lot of work.

What we have done with sucess in the past, is to use javascript to bind the
two.

Java Applet -- Javascript -- Flash movie

On the flash side, we just used ExternalInterface (Flash 8+ only, but on =
7, you can use the Flash/JS Integration kit)

On the java side, there is documented ways to communicate out to javascript.
Here is a page that shows some examples, you can find more via

File class in Java. Represents files and directories.

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/io/File.html

You can do some searches and find a ton of tutorials on this I imagine, 
although the API is fairly straight-forward. The list() method is what you're 
interested in.

As far as communication goes, you're going to have to use the Socket and 
ServerSocket classes. They make the task of communication between Flash and 
Java near painless. I can send a little sample socket server over if you want.

Ian,

 Flash doesn't have the concept of constants, so you couldn't
 enforce a constant even if you wanted to (except by a hack like
 defining a null set() function, but that's beside the point a bit)...
 you can only suggest that specific things should be constant by
 convention

It's not really beside the point. We define constants in this way...

class Test {
public static function get SOME_CONSTANT():String {
return value;
}
}

...which works perfectly.

RE: [Flashcoders] DataGrid Component Performance

2006-03-15 Thread Scott Hyndman
Expand rows? Like a tree/table idea? No, it can't.

It is build to handle thousand of rows, but there a couple of issues. 
Population of the datagrid is slow as molasses. You might be able to short 
circuit your way into some better performance, but it's a crapshoot. Also, 
don't even bother trying to sort. It might be interesting to try delegating 
sorting to the server and getting a permutation vector back...but even then, it 
might give you trouble.

Also, column sorting is limited to string sorts. When I needed more complex 
sorting behaviour, I achieved it by subclassing DataGridColumn (might be named 
differently, it's been awhile) and hooking into the header's press handler.

Hope this helps,

I rethought this. I imagine the issue surrounding the sort is related to the

here is the mtasc command i'm trying for the calc example:

mtasc -header 600:500:31 -version 8 -main -strict -trace
org.actionstep.ASDebugger.debugPaneITrace -swf calc.swf -cp src -cp
test\src calcSample\Main

I can't figure out what i'm missing.. calc.asml?

Also, I did manage to build the ActionStep.swf library swf but not sure
how to use it in combination with the above. I think i'm supposed to..

RE: [Flashcoders] ActionStep, help compiling examples.

2006-03-11 Thread Scott Hyndman
Actually, I'm going to give a quick answer here (but you should join our
list):

The calculator sample needs you to have the ActionStepLib swf compiled,
as well as calculator.asml in the test subdirectory. So for the pathing
to be correct, here's how it needs to look:

Calculator.swf - (This could be named anything)
ActionStepLib.swf
test/calculator.asml

But I imagine you just want to get this thing up and running, am I
right? You should use this build script:

mtasc -cp src -cp test/src -swf ActionStep.swf -header 800:600:20
-version 8 -trace org.actionstep.ASDebugger.debugPanelTrace -pack
org/actionstep -pack org/actionstep/constants -pack
org/actionstep/images org/actionstep/test/ASTestMain -main

To change the output of this test, open up
org.actionstep.test.ASTestMain (in the test/src classpath), and change
line 21 to point to another test class. There's tons of stuff in there,
so it should keep you busy for awhile.

By the way. We're getting close to a second release, and this one will
be launched alongside a new website with some great tutorials on getting
started.

RE: [Flashcoders] .curveTo question

2006-03-06 Thread Scott Hyndman
I believe the curveTo() method take four arguments. Anchor coords and control 
coords. Just something I noticed offhand. I haven't tested the code.

Subject:[Flashcoders] .curveTo question
i am trying to draw a rectangle, with only three out of four curves. the
rectangle has only one straight edge, the top right. by my calculations, the
rectangle should be 50 pixels high, and 150 wide. for some reason, this code
produces a weird polygon with no curves. any ideas?

function drawBar(xx, yy) {
 _root.createEmptyMovieClip(bar, 1);
 with(bar) {
  beginFill(myMenuColors[0], 100);
  moveTo(15, 0);
  lineTo(150, 0);
  lineTo(150, 35);
  curveTo(135, 50);
  lineTo(15, 50);
  curveTo(0, 35);
  lineTo(0, 15);
  curveTo(15, 0);
  endFill();
  _x = xx;
  _y = yy;
 }
}

regards,
murderd

curveTo takes 4 args, not 2. have a look in the help for curveTo, you 
need to specify the control points and the anchor points...

RE: [Flashcoders] how to make single cell in the grid non editable?

2006-02-22 Thread Scott Hyndman
 And it's not fully working in case when user navigates trough datagrid using
 arrows or enter key. I REALLY REALLY start to hate  this  v2 standard
 DataGrid and can't wait until I can use  Flex2 components.

Are you sure they're so different? It's a very similar framework. I'm sure 
there is a lot of code reuse...or at least reuse of architectural ideas.

RE: [Flashcoders] Re: When singletons go bad

2006-02-20 Thread Scott Hyndman
The big difference is that singleton classes have an instance. By having an 
instance, the singleton class can inherited functionality as well as 
subclasses. There are many more benefits...but it really comes down to how 
you're using it. If you don't need inherited functionality, static classes are 
fine.

Subject:RE: [Flashcoders] Re: When singletons go bad


Slightly off the subject but why does he have to use getInstance()?
Isn't there a way to use a singleton without calling getInstance? Why can't
he directly use the class like this:

import MyManager;

MyManager.doSomething();

The Math class, Delegate class and other classes let you use methods without
calling getInstance() first.

Just curious if this works better for you:

private function MyManager() {
 // constructor
 return getInstance();
}

public static function getInstance() : MyManager{
 if(_myManager == undefined){
 _myManager = new MyManager();
 _myManager.init();
 }
 return _myManager;
}

Sorry, I haven't had the time to follow the whole discussion, but I figured
I'd throw this your way and see if it helps. 

Good luck.

Ok, it is possible to manipulate an image using new BitmapData class in the 
client-side, but I wonder how it is possible to send the manipulated image back 
to the server? Do I need to browse the whole image pixels and send a complete 
Array of ARGB pixel values to a web-service to create an image again?
   
  Any ideas?

Is there ever a case where theD would be higher that -1 and not lower
