[Flashcoders] Re: Blur effect via action scripting

2007-05-03 Thread Glenn Grant
you don't even need a tween package for this (altho they sure are useful
things). read about BitmapData, BlurFilter, and Repeating actions using
loops in the Flash Help.

gg


  OOoops!!! I am sorry. It is not blue but blur.
  I have three good quality image in my application. Initially I want all
  three look blur but when user roll over to it then it will gradually
  become
  clear image  when roll out it would be again blur.

 There are a lot of different tweening packages out there that do the
 thing with one command only (or very close to it). There's MC Tween,
 Fuse Kit, Tweener, and probably others who do support 'native' filter
 blur filtering.

 That's the kind of solution you should be looking for. No need for
 overcomplicate a problem that's so simple.

[Flashcoders] Exporting alpha channel video from flash

2007-04-04 Thread Glenn Grant
sorry if i posted this before, i asked this question a couple of days ago
but never saw it come back in the digest, and it doesn't show up in the
archives search. although it did seem someone else recently asked nearly the
same question and nobody really knew. so let's try again.

i have some animated icons in flash that need to make it into either after
effects or avid. in Export Movie i can select QuickTime Video and in the
Format box select 32-bit Color (alpha channel). however, when Importing
Footage into After Effects, no matter how i Interpret Footage the swf comes
in opaque. so far exporting a .png sequence works, but that is clunky. yes,
i know about wmode, that doesn't seem to have anything to do with this. does
anybody know the trick?

thanks,
glenn grant

RE: [Flashcoders] setting a timer in flash 8

2007-03-25 Thread Glenn Grant
hi gustavo,

your first problem is that you have a gotoAndPlay loop. that means that
every time you go back to frame 1 you are re-creating your now variable, so
it is never going to have a chance to get bigger. secondly, the timer does
need to be updated  checked inside your onEnterFrame (i used a
setInterval), so that it can be compared with your later variable. try this:

stop();
var startTime:Number = getTimer()/1000;
var later:Number = 20;
var timeCheck:Number = setInterval(checkTime, 100);
function checkTime(){
var currentTime:Number = getTimer()/1000;
var elapsedTime:Number = currentTime - startTime;
if(elapsedTime = later){
trace(llegamos);
clearInterval(timeCheck);
}
}

[Flashcoders] LoadVars.send vs. LoadVars.sendAndLoad

2006-11-29 Thread Glenn Grant
I use .sendAndLoad to load a shopping cart so it will not pop a new browser
window each time the user adds an item. this works fine locally, but online
the items are not being added to the cart. if i use .send instead of
.sendAndLoad everything works fine except for the aforementioned launching
of browser every time. i read in flash's documentation that .sendAndLoad has
a different security protocol than .send, so i have tried
System.security.allowDomain(thedomain.com); in the first line, which
doesn't seem to be making a difference. any suggestions?

[Flashcoders] Disable a menu with MM V2 Menu component.

2006-06-28 Thread Grant Davies
I'm adding authorization to my application and I've manged to disable menu 
items within a menu by setting the enabled property to false.  In some case the 
entire menu needs to be disabled, but it appears to be ignoring my 
enabled=false or setEnabled(false).
 
e,.g.
 
myAccountMenu = menuBar.addMenu(MyAccount, myAccountXML);
  
  myAccountMenu.setEnabled(false);
 
The menu is still active, looks active and works, even though I'd expect it to 
be grey and inactive.
 
anyone have a clue or should I start hacking the MM v2 menu code ?

Re: [Flashcoders] Where to politely and appropriately discuss pricing issues

2006-06-01 Thread Grant Cox
Yeah,  I totally agree with Claus about pricing.  There are just too 
many bad clients out there, where at the end of the day the associated 
stress and pain of completing a project with them means you end up with 
a net loss.  Offering cheap prices (below market rate), or any kind of 
incentive to get their business (how many times have you heard Do us a 
good price on this one, and there will be heaps more work later!), is 
just like holding up a red flag to the bad-client-bull.


Generally our process is to have an initial meeting with the prospective 
client to find out exactly what the project will entail, what the 
deadlines are, and how prepared they actually are.  If possible (ie you 
are confident in your quoting skills) we usually give a rough cost 
estimate (ie roughly how many thousand $), otherwise do this a day or so 
later.  If any of the first attributes (project scope, deadlines, 
preparation) are looking flakey, then this cost estimate will be 
substantially higher than what it should actually cost to develop.  
Remember, what looks bad at the first meeting will be at least 10x worse 
by the end of the project.  If they baulk at this cost estimate, good - 
you've just saved yourself a world of pain :)  And wasting a few hours 
on a meeting and a cost estimate to find your client is an unorganised 
cheap-skate is better than finding that after signing any kind of contract.


Of course, this can only work if the client actually wants YOU to work 
on their project - you aren't just another name in the yellow pages.  
All I can say about that is that it's 80% marketing (not advertising), 
and 20% portfolio.


I also agree with Claus about making yourself indispensible.  While 
doing so may stop them from going elsewhere (or make it difficult), it 
also makes it very difficult for you to move on if you so decide.  I 
have found a number of clients who initially looked like they would be 
keepers, but after a few months it turns out to be a lot of overhead to 
do the same old boring, low paid work.  Do you really want to lock 
yourself into this, and not be able to recommend another freelancer?


Regards,
Grant Cox


Claus Wahlers wrote:

That's interesting.. i usually do the exact opposite (of course, this

I usually offer new clients my regular rate and offer discounts when i
feel that my relationship to the client is good and of a potentially
long term nature. Most of the time, the client continues to pay me my
regular rate for follow up projects though.

Also, apart from trying to do a good job and making the client happy
of course, i never ever do anything to make myself indispensible. To
the contrary actually. For a long term, good client relationship imho
it's absolutely necessary to give the client assurance that if for
whatever reason i might not be available to continue working on a
project (e.g. i get ill), he can continue without much hassle with
another similarly skilled developer.

Re: [Flashcoders] Fwd: Loading Text files into swfs then loading swfs into other swfs...

2006-06-01 Thread Grant Cox
Perhaps it's the Flash security settings then.  I personally find flash 
security to be a grey area, but things to check would be:


- That you have a crossdomain.xml file on your server, allowing flash 
files to load data from that domain
- That your local flash security settings (from 
http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.html#117502 
) have Always Allow ticked, and you add c:\ to your trusted locations.


Hope that helps.

Re: [Flashcoders] Re: Timeline coding

2006-04-18 Thread Grant Cox
For your first question - you will not be able to access clip_mc unless 
the playhead is on a frame where that movieclip exists.  You should be 
able to access the mc and all child mcs immediately after going to the 
correct frame, however you will not be able to execute any script 
defined inside the movieclip until a frame has passed.


With your second question, the scoping is not necessarily what you would 
expect.  The scoping of the function is wherever you define it, for 
example having


blah = 1;
clip_mc.btn1_btn = 2;

clip_mc.btn1_btn.onRelease = function(){
 trace( this );
 trace( blah );
}

will trace

_level0.clip_mc.btn1_btn
1

when you click.  Of course, you don't have to worry about the scope of 
_root.variableName, as you are providing the absolute path to the variable.


Regards,
Grant Cox.

Hello all, I know this is really basic, but I wanted to know something

should place it in a central location, so I set my code in the timeline

sometimes buttons do not react unless the onRelease event handler is in the
same frame as where the movie stops. Is this correct? Do actions have to be
in same frame as where the movie stops and you want the interactivity?
Though I wanted to get the answer to this general question, what I have
specifically is a movieclip with buttons inside of it. I have tried putting
the code for these buttons in the first frame of the main timeline or in the
last frame of the main timeline, where this movieclip is instantiated. But
neither method works.

I use something like this: clip_mc.btn1_btn.onRelease =
function(){getURL(etcetcetc.);};
Where should one place this code? Are actions present in the first frame
of the main timeline applicable to all subsequent frames, unless
overwritten? In case you wish to know, the buttons and movieclips do have
instance names.

Thanks in advance.

Re: [Flashcoders] flash file to recognize SESSION or REQUEST variables?

2006-04-10 Thread Grant Cox
To get data into your swf, you will want to use the FlashVars embed 
tag.  This can be done very easily with FlashObject ( 
http://blog.deconcept.com/flashobject/ ), in fact it appears that 
FlashObject will automatically pass your request parameters (the 
attributes on the end of the URL) into your flash movie.


Now, I don't quite follow what your client means in their first URL, 
where they have some PHP code.  If that is meant to be PHP, then that's 
fine, and FlashObject will ensure that your SWF has variables p, m, 
dcwid and udfo2 available on the root timeline.  If he's just saying you 
need extra URL parameters passed to the server, well, that's nothing to 
do with flash.

Grant Cox

How can we get the link in the URL of the flash file to recognize SESSION or

url =
https://secure.store.com/HousewivesUnleashed.306/buy.cfm?p=1000141m=306dc

as opposed to what we currently have.

Re: [Flashcoders] allowing slow animation

2006-04-09 Thread Grant Cox
Oops, looks like I forgot to ensure the font outlines were included in 
my dynamic text field :)  I tested as both a plain textfield, and inside 
a MC.


I don't have time to investigate further, but I believe it will snap to 
pixels in Flash 7 when:

- You use a dynamic textfield without embedding fonts
- You set the font to appear aliased
- You are using a pixel font (unless flash fudges the anti-aliasing...)

But as you mentioned, it would be great to have a .fla of the exact 
circumstances to test ourselves.

Re: [Flashcoders] If not Zinc, then what?

2006-04-03 Thread Grant Cox
Well, I was probably being too harsh with major bugs, as I can't 
remember exactly what they were now (it was about 6 months ago I used 
it).  I believe we had the same issue with building - having to reload 
SW first, but often when reloading it would fail because the process was 
still running in the background.  Also, we had some issues with system 
dialog boxes, that they displayed multiple times.


Anyway, I was somewhat naive as to what to expect of Projector 
applications, and as SW was quite new to Open Source, had a very small 
developer and user base, we thought it best to go to a third party.

Grant Cox

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash and input type=file....

2006-04-03 Thread Grant Cox

Except that only works in Flash 8, as the OP mentioned.

Unfortunately there is no way to do this in Flash 7, except for iframe 
hacks or similar.  I saw a link a year or so ago where someone placed a 
transparent HTML iframe over the top of the flash SWF, so the HTML form 
looked as though it was part of the flash.  It was fairly hacky, and I 
don't think it was cross-browser compatible.

Re: [Flashcoders] lil' help with amfphp... works locally, not uploaded...

Make sure you have a crossdomain.xml file in the root of your server, 
otherwise the security model in Flash will refuse connections to that 
server.


The simplest version (allow all connections from any flash files) would be:

?xml version=1.0?
!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy

cross-domain-policy

Re: [Flashcoders] If not Zinc, then what?

2006-03-28 Thread Grant Cox
We just did our first application with a projector app like this.  
Thankfully the target was only for Windows 2000 and XP, but it needed to 
support nice transparency with non-rectangular windows.


First I gave Screenweaver OS a go, but it has some major bugs, and 
almost no development (well, not on the version 3, apparently they are 
working hard on the beta version 4).  After a couple of days we decided 
that we needed an application that could provide support.


We looked at them all, and decided on Zinc, as it seemed to have the 
most active forums and developers (ie they respond to bug reports 
quickly), it was cross platform (thinking about future projects), and 
had a lot of features.  Unfortunately we found that CPU usage was 
extreme - with an application approximately 800x600 it would use 65% of 
a 3.0GHz cpu just sitting there, and 100% cpu when there was any 
animation inside the window.  This is due to the transparency - it was 
much better with a regular rectangular window.


As our client found this unacceptable we moved to mProjector (at their 
recommendation).  We found mProjector to make the smallest file size, 
and have the best CPU usage.  Unfortunately their support is much slower 
- the forums are much less busy and the devs will take some days to 
respond to emails.  They were in the process of releasing their new 
version at this time, so this may explain it (they are a much smaller 
operation than Zinc).  Unfortunately we found there was a bug that would 
cause the application to crash sporadically (when loading external 
movies/data), and some two months after reporting this as a bug it was 
still on their todo list.  Also transparency was fine in the Flash 7 
build, but in Flash 8 was very patchy (I believe this has been fixed since).


So, we had to move to Northcode SWF Studio.  This was our last option, 
as we couldn't find any other Projector applications that had 
synchronous commands (and switching to asynchronous would be far too 
much work this late in the project).  Northcode has fairly quiet forums, 
but their devs replied to every post at least once a day, and responded 
to emails within a day (with the timezone difference from Aus to Canada 
I thought that was pretty good).  The downside is that their 
transparency support was fairly poor - the only reliable method for 
non-rectangular windows was to have 1bit transparency.  They did provide 
me with a pre-release version with better transparency (which I believe 
has been released now), however this did have pretty much the same CPU 
issue as Zinc.


So, overall:
- Northcode (which we ended up going with) had the best support and 
least bugs.  But did make the largest filesize.
- Zinc has the most features, and the CPU issue appeared to just be 
Flash 8 - all three had ver poor CPU usage when using nice transparency 
in Flash 8.  Medium filesize
- mProjector had the smallest filesize, and with Flash 7 had the best 
CPU performance.  The app/libraries had the least features (ie no cross 
platform, no screensavers, no support for standard rectangular windows).


And at the end of it all, I have vowed to avoid working on any Projector 
applications like this again.  They all seem like patchy solutions, and 
I guess that's why Macromedia never added more than basic fscommands to 
the standard Flash projectors.

Grant Cox

Re: [Flashcoders] Simple date comparison bug?

2006-03-23 Thread Grant Cox
Well, it depends how the comparisons work. When you check equivalence 
== it is checking whether the two Date instances are the same object, 
which of course they aren't. When you check greater than or less than, 
it can only check their value, and that is the same.


So it comes down to how the Date class handles comparisons. I'm honestly 
not sure how you overwrite these in Actionscript (I guess there must be 
something in Object that you can overwrite). But checking equivalence 
with complex variables will always be checking if they are actually 
references to the same object, not if the two objects have the same 
attributes.


Oh, and Ryan, is your fourth line meant to be

trace( d1 = d2 );

or

trace( d1 == d2 );

?

Re: [Flashcoders] DataGrid Component Performance

2006-03-15 Thread Grant Cox
What do you mean by expand rows?  But I think the answer is no - all 
grid rows need to be the same height (this height is adjustable, but 
applies to all rows).


The datagrid component can handle many thousand rows, but becomes very 
unresponsive with a number of columns.  In an application which does 
display a lot of data we limit the grids to a maximum of 15 columns, and 
this can display 20,000 rows ok.  However, whenever the grid needs to do 
a full redraw (ie sorting a column, resizing a column) it can pause for 
a couple of seconds.  Also, intensive CellRenderers should be avoided, 
as should any kind of manual row highlighting (ie alternate row colours).

Grant Cox

Re: [Flashcoders] Encrypting data

2006-03-14 Thread Grant Cox
This is true.  However, if someone is prepared to submit fake post 
requests to hack your high scores, are they not going to decompile your 
SWF to see how you encrypt the high scores?


My recommendation is to submit the level reached and the score, and have 
the server validate these (ie that the score achieved was possible for 
the level reached).  Also, make the client inform the server every time 
a new level is reached, and validate that these are not occuring too 
fast (ie at least 20 seconds apart).  And encrypt any important data 
sent to/from the server, but use some stupid algorithm you made up, do 
it inline (don't use a encrypt/decrypt function), and then obfuscate 
your actionscript.  Oh, and if any of these server side checks fail, 
just ignore any high scores from that IP address.


Or, just admit that faking high scores is nigh impossible when the 
client is so easily modified, and don't worry about it :)

Grant Cox

[Flashcoders] How does remoting access class members ?

2006-03-04 Thread Grant Davies
I'm trying to remember how remoting accesses class members when
translating and object for serialization over AMF

I know it can access the private variables of a class, but will it use
get/set methods if they are present, for example :


class com.somecompany.domain
{
private var eventId:Number;
private var title:String;

public function get EventId():Number
{
return eventId;
}

public function set EventId(eventId:Number):Void
{

this.eventId = eventId; 
}

public function get Title():String
{
return this.title;  
}

public function set Title(title:String):Void
{
this.title = title; 
}
}

Will the remoting library in flash use the get / set methods here if
I've defined Title and EventId on the remote object or will it bypass
those methods and attempt to use the private variables eventId and title
?

Cheers

RE: [Flashcoders] Z sorting multiple overlapping movie clips

2006-03-01 Thread Grant Davies
Problem with that is if the item you click on is under other items and
it swaps depths with the top item, the top item then appears under
things it wasn't.  I did it this way first and it looked very weird.

I ended up just writing a depth sorter, each of the objects that are
added to the screen dispatch a registration event and the depth sorter
adds them to a list and stores a sorted depths list, when an item wants
to be on top I figure out where it is in the Z order and then swap it
with the item above it and then the next, and next and next until I get
to the top, that way the Z order is preserved just like in a windowing
system.

 Not really - I'm swapping with (the depth of the topmost item + 1).

[Flashcoders] Z sorting multiple overlapping movie clips

2006-02-27 Thread Grant Davies
Does anyone have a an algorithm for Z sorting multiple overlapping
clips...

I have an array of clips and when one is clicked I want it to come to
the top, but I want the other overlapping items to also shift
appropriately...

So

Item [1] at depth 10
Item [2] at depth 9
Item [3] at depth 8
Item [4] at depth 7

If you click item [4], it would go to depth 10, and the other would
shift down 1

Item [4] depth 10
Item [1] depth 9
Item [2] depth 8
Item [3] depth 7

But if any of those items are overlaping other items, they also need to
be Z sorted.

I'd rather not re-invent the wheel.

Thanks
Grant

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

2006-02-23 Thread Grant Cox
The only way I've done it is by making the entire datagrid non-editable, 
and listening for a double click on a single cell.  When this happens, 
if that cell can edited that column is set to editable, and the 
appropriate cell is selected.  On a mouse deselect (onBlur?) the column 
is set back to non-editable.


Generally I've found that double clicking to edit a field works quite 
well, as I never liked that just selecting a row would start to edit the 
actual cell clicked.

Re: [Flashcoders] Re: Installing Custom Ant Tasks in Eclipse

2006-02-23 Thread Grant Cox
I messed around with a few preprocessors a week or so ago, and just had 
so many problems (due to ignorance - I'm a noob when it comes to 
java/ant etc).  However, finally I got FMPP to work ( 
http://fmpp.sourceforge.net/ ), and while the preprocessing directives 
aren't the prettiest (they look like html tags), once I got it working I 
was beyond caring about that :)


This is the appropriate part from my build.xml:

!-- PreProcess all the Actionscript with FMPP, output to build 
directory --
taskdef name=fmpp classname=fmpp.tools.AntTask 
classpath=${dependencies_dir}/fmpp/lib/fmpp.jar /

fmpp
   sourceRoot=${src_dir} outputRoot=${build_dir}
   modes=ignore(server/**/*, lib/**/*, dependencies/**/*), 
execute(**/*.as), copy(**/*.swf), ignore(**/*)

   quiet=false 
   data
   antProperties(svn_version)
   debug: true
   /data
/fmpp

Actually, so that modes line makes sense, my folder structure is:

/build
/deploy
/src
  /com
  /dependencies
  /lib
  /server

And I only want it to preprocess .as files from the /src and /src/com 
(not dependencies, lib or server), copy any .swf files (in case MTASC 
needs them as base files) and ignores the rest.

Grant Cox

Except you would have to iterate through every _parent level until you 
hit the _root anyway, in case any ancestor clip is scaled...  I've done 
that before for visibility ( parent was _visible=false, grandchild was 
_visible=true but of course not seen).

Also, you could just multiply the width/height by the scale..

Re: [Flashcoders] OT: Design patterns

2006-02-22 Thread Grant Cox
Wouldn't it be great to have a project like that - that actually stays 
on track and doesn't have last minute changes :)


It is never necessary to use design patterns, but they can make your 
project more structured.  More structured usually means easier to 
understand, and easier to modify (as it is more obvious what else will 
be affected by any change).  I would suggest spending time on less 
critical projects to explore using some design patterns, to see how you 
feel about them, and if you find they are useful then keep using them.


When I first started using design patterns (when FAMES kicked off) I 
thought it was important to use pure patterns, and got quite stressed 
trying to understand wtf all the patterns actually are and why I should 
be using them.  Now that I have made a few projects (~6) in this fashion 
I am much more laid back - I use the patterns that I understand, 
bastardise others to something I like, and ignore the rest.  We're not 
making works of art here - as long as the project is done to time and 
budget and isn't a complete dog's breakfast then it's fine :)

Re: [Flashcoders] Strange actionscript vs tweening problem Flash8

2006-02-16 Thread Grant Cox
I'm not sure what is happening in your case, but previously I have found 
similar issues (with code / timeline based effects conflicting) when:


- The symbol (movieclip/button) does not have the same instance name 
across all keyframes (ie doesn't have an instance name on a keyframe).
- When the code changes any attribute of a tweened symbol.  If you have 
code that changes a clip's position, the tween becomes invalid until the 
next keyframe (which then overwrites whatever code change you made).  I 
assume this applies to all other clip attributes (not just position), as 
a key is on a whole layer...


Regards,
Grant Cox

I just simply use

for (i=1; i10; i++) {

This is for button 1 through 9 and then on the timeline there's a tween with
all the buttons that go to an other location themselfs. But when I click on
a button, that button stays on it's place until the tween is done and then
finally flips to the position it supposed to tween to.

Re: [Flashcoders] Issue with two instances on a timeline

2006-02-16 Thread Grant Cox
I agree, this is perhaps the most irritating thing about animating 
inside the Flash timeline.


Unfortunately I believe it is just a limitation of Flash, and the only 
way to get around it is to avoid keyframes on objects you need to use 
code with.  So, either avoid all keyframes and do animation with code, 
or just avoid keyframes on the specific objects you want to modify with 
code.  In your example for changing text or colour, the object you are 
changing (textfield or movieclip) needs to be inside another movieclip.  
Now you can apply code to the inner movieclip and timeline effects to 
the outer movieclip (or vice versa), and it should work ok.


But unfortunately it is still a pain.  But then, that's animating in 
Flash for you :)

Grant Cox

Hi folks,

I've had this problem for a long time and it keeps on coming back once in a
while, and allthough
I've allways found ways to work around it, I never got to a real solution,
so perhaps some of you know the
answer.

The problem is, simply put:

make a textfield, called tfield
place it inside a movieclip called mc

now we'll animate mc, one keyframe on frame 1, one keyframe on frame 10, put
a motion tween in there.
now the problem is, i have two keyframes, thus two instances of, basically,
the same thing (same instance name)
this, somehow, always brings up alot of problems, giving unexpected results.
when i, say, change the color of the movieclip, or the text of the field
inside the movieclip, it usually doesn't work at all

it seems like flash only likes to change the color or text on the first
frame and not during the animation, or on the last frame

Does anyone know a good solution to this problem, because i feel there must
be an easy solution to this (besides tweening with actionscript alone)

thanks,

Meinte

If all you want is for the datagrid to refresh from the data already in 
it's dataProvider (ie, each grid row updates to what you want when you

myGrid.dataProvider = myGrid.dataProvider;

Specifically, I have a field called 'select', and for its column in

given item appropriately.


However, I'd also like to add a select all checkbox.  I have no 
problem responding to clicks on the CheckBox with a quick 
looping-through of the dataProvider setting the select fields on each 
item to true or false, as the case may be.


But I can't seem to get the DataGrid to redraw right away to reflect 
the change.  The CheckBoxes will redraw correctly only when I mouse 
over the rows.


I should note that a co-worker of mine got this functionality working 
using code on the timeline, whereas I'm trying to do it within a class 
to which the MovieClip containing the DataGrid is linked and having 
considerably less luck with it.


I've tried calling invalidate(), redraw(), draw(), and refresh(), on 
the DataGrid, and a few combinations of two or more of these, all to 
no avail (do any of those functions actually *do* anything??)

Re: [Flashcoders] flv video encoding for flash 7

2006-02-15 Thread grant
I used the flash 8 video encoding tool and set it for flash 7 high quality 
(700k) and the video is very pixelated, I've uploaded it here for review :

http://bluetubecom.web123.discountasp.net/clients/soapbox/videotest.html

the original quicktime is here :

http://bluetubecom.web123.discountasp.net/clients/soapbox/img/PortVideo/SBS_open_for_flash-test.mov

the flv version is really pixelated, not acceptable at all.  Someone suggested 
using sorenson squeeze instead of the flash video encoder as it may produce 
better results but I'm pretty green on flash video.

The settings I used for that where :

Sorenson spark codec, frame rate same as source (29.xx), keyframe placement 
automatic, quality, custom, 1000 kilobits per sec, no video resize, audio mp3, 
128kbs stereo.

Thanks

Any pointers much appreciated :)

Re: [Flashcoders] embeded CSS issue

Thanks Gregory,

The code in the email was a quick example, I really do allocate objects before 
I use them :)

It appears you are right that the only reliable way is with parse css function 
as the built in stuff in 8 really doesn't seem to work at all.

Thanks

Subject: Re: [Flashcoders] embeded CSS issue

 Grant,
 
 While I can't open you sample (I'm still with FMX2004), there's some
 obvious mistakes in the code:
 1) You need to sreate new TextField.StyleSheet object before using it.
 2) Too many zeros in color ( boldlite.color = #ff00;)
 3) If testText is textfield, it doesn't have .font property - you
 have to define font face in CSS or use TextFormat instead.
 4) Strange, but your P with class doesn't work (while it should). I'd
 use  tag instead.
 
 BTW, I prefer to write CSS as string and then use .parseCSS . This
 approach have some advantages. For example, you can define several
 alternative fonts (font-familiy: Futura Medium, _sans) .
 
 Corrected code:
 ===
 // ADDED
 var testSheet:TextField.StyleSheet = new TextField.StyleSheet();
 
 var boldlite:Object = new Object();
 boldlite.color = #ff;
 boldlite.fontWeight = bold;
 boldlite.fontFamily = Futura Medium;
 
 testSheet.setStyle(boldlite, boldlite);
 
 testText.styleSheet = testSheet;
 testText.embedFonts=true;
 // make sure you embedded font somewhere
 testText.wordWrap=true;
 testText.htmlText=using class*this should be bold and red*;

Re: [Flashcoders] plz suggest.....urgent

2006-02-07 Thread Grant Cox
Well, not really - it's part of a larger application, and I have certain 
business obligations not to just give it all away.  However, if you are 
stuck with something specific then I don't mind helping out (although it 
is almost 7pm here - I will be heading home soon).


Basically what we did was had a controller to manage the list of Fields 
(our data type for a grid column).  The popup window had a datagrid that 
displayed all of the Field objects from the controller, displaying only 
the title and visible attributes.  We had a Checkbox CellRenderer 
used for the visible column, so ticking / unticking would change this 
attribute.  Once the popup window is hidden, then the main datagrid 
columns are recreated, by looping through all the Field objects from the 
controller, and creating a DataGridColumn for each Field whose visible 
is set to true.


Macromedia have some sample CellRenderers, one of which is for a 
checkbox.  You can download this from

http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flash/fl8/samples.html

Re: [Flashcoders] How do you code your Flash applications?

2006-02-06 Thread Grant Cox
Just to throw my 2c in, I personally only use getNextHighestDepth(), and 
as yet haven't had any problems with it.  The majority of our screens 
are already placed in the Flash timeline, I use attachMovie almost only 
to populate scrollpanes, and loadMovie only into graphic components.


To keep our code separated from the design, we will use placeholders / 
components in the Flash file to define where external elements are 
loaded.  This lets the designers fiddle with what they like, without 
having to bother me :)

Grant Cox

Please explain what you mean by checkboxes in a scrollbar.  Do you 
mean a list component (scrollable), where each row contains a checkbox?  
If so, you want to use a CellRenderer.


Or do you mean just two checkboxes, in a bounding area that can have 
scrollbars?  If so, you probably want a ScrollPane, with the content 
being a movieclip containing the checkboxes.

Re: [Flashcoders] select columns-datagrid

How is your edit button embedded in the column, are you using a Cell 
Renderer?  When I have done something similar using a CellRenderer I 
made the CellRenderer dispatch an event (actually from the Datagrid), 
which contained the cell's row and column.  This way in my class 
containing the Datagrid, I could just listen for my event just like any 
other (like cellEdit, headerRelease etc).


Below is the appropriate line from my CellRenderer.  I believe the 
template for this CellRenderer was just from the Macromedia multiline 
textfield sample.


listOwner.dispatchEvent({type:myCustomEvent,
   itemIndex: getCellIndex().itemIndex,
   columnIndex: getCellIndex().columnIndex,
   newValue: somethingGoesHere});

Re: [Flashcoders] How do you code your Flash applications?

2006-02-02 Thread Grant Cox
I personally use Eclipse / MTASC, so all code is class based.  In my 
Flash file all symbols that need functionality have a linkage id, and 
almost all of my symbols are only a single frame (unless shape tweening 
is needed).  To make the Flash compile faster, none of these symbols are 
linked to Classes in the Library, this is all done in the external code 
using Object.registerClass.


I find it a lot cleaner to have all of my code in a nice external 
structure, in a decent IDE.  My code is all right where I need it, I can 
control all animation simply (using an animation / tweening library like 
Fuse), and I can let the designers do almost whatever they like to the 
Flash file without worrying about them stuffing code up.  And, of 
course, I get decent version control on the source files.


After using this for a few months, I just wouldn't code inside the Flash 
IDE any more.  Movieclip spaghetti is a bitter dish.

Grant Cox

Hi expert coders,

Just a simple question,
How do you develop your Flash applications? How do you write clean,
readable, and reusable codes?

The reason I'm asking this is because, so often, I got lost in
MovieClips spaghetti. Different depth/levels/timelines drive me nuts
and in the end, after reviewing my codes, I can't help re-writing
everything from scratch in order to make it much cleaner. So, on the
same project, I always work twice. :(

What I do so far is write-then-test every single function in my
codes;if it works then I'll write another function. And I tend to
write everything in a single frame.

I'd be more than happy if you, experts, can tell me the right way to
code/develop Flash applications.

TIA,

Re: [Flashcoders] How do you code your Flash applications?

2006-02-02 Thread grant
I build assets in flash and give them symbol names that match my class names.

for example

loginForm = com.bluetube.view.LginForm

I code in eclipse and bind classes to symbols using Object.registerClass, I 
compile with mtasc and use ANT to build.  I always have an ApplicationForm 
class that kicks off the whole show (natural entry point) and its the swf that 
gets the code injected into it via MTASC.  I load external swfs with symbols 
that have names that match their classes but they have no code IN the swf.

I use the ARP framework on pretty much everything.  (I code, I have a designer 
who does the animation)

I use Fuse for code based tweens.

I use alcon for logging via a custom logger and the -trace feature of mtasc

I use xray to debug

I'm busy as hell since i learned all this stuff (normall a JAVA J2EE coder) :)  

(thanks flash and the open source community!)

and found that while my Remoting calls were working, nothing was 
printing in the NetConnection Debugger.  After some debugging I have 
found that I cannot get anything to print to the NetConnection Debugger 
even from within the Flash 8 IDE, and this is with a clean reinstall of 
Flash 8 (no previous version of Flash installed) and the Remoting 
components.  I have set the Flash 8 security settings to Always Allow, 
and to trust anything in C:\.


The follow code, when applied to the first frame of an empty movie with 
just the RemotingConnector Component on the stage, works in Flash 7, but 
does not work in Flash 8.  The log messages work fine (and the remoting 
connection is created and works), but nothing appears in the 
NetConnection Debugger.


Can anyone see a problem with this, or even replicate the error?

Regards,
Grant Cox

Yes, yes, and yes.

And in Flash 7 it works, but not Flash 8.

Did you try manually tracing?

Thanks clark.

I have a non public RIA that used ARP and is pretty big (3000 hours total) I 
did the flash and java with 2 other developers over six months.  We used 
openAMF and love remoting having done webservices with flash before (I like web 
services for java/.net stuff)

Our isn't pretty like yours though :)

 Thanks Grant, yeah the controls are lightweight custom components with an
 event model designed to allow the kind of communication between them so that
 recommended sizes can be autoselected. Uses FlashRemoting (via CF) for all
 product data, pricing and options.
 
 Often I think the blistering performance of Remoting is overlooked - it's
 definitely a huge advantage of developing RIA's in Flash.

[Flashcoders] JSFL help

2006-01-15 Thread grant
I've never used JSFL and found a book at borders that was supposed to teach but 
looks more like a dump of the API to a book.

I need to create some templated swf's and would like the text fields in the swf 
to be populated either by a human being whois not a flash developer (e.g. enter 
data into a panel and it puts the data into the correct text field variables).  
Or to have swf's generated from a text file, say coma separated that contains 
the values for the text fields, is this even possible and are there any good 
lists out there from JSFL ?

The client does needs templated flash files, there will be about 10 standard 
fla files and then we need to populate several text fields with data, the 10 
stanard files would be used to produce 150 swf files with different text in the 
text fields and I can't do it dynmically (no web services or remoting) the swf 
must be self contained including its data.

any JSFL gurus on the list ?

Thanks
Grant

Re: SV: [Flashcoders] certificate

One issue I had with internet exploder was the first time I did an https call 
instead of hitting the server I was asking it to hit, it went to the windows 
update site to see if there were any updates due, I still haven't figured out 
why it did this, and this was looking at the http traffic from the browser with 
a proxy...  I had no issues with firefox.

Subject: SV: [Flashcoders] certificate

 Yes flash in Internet Explorer has serious problems with self signed or 3. 
 party ssl certificates. If the certificate is a valid one (by Verisign) there 
 are no issues. 
 
 The problem is actually that when flash makes the request through IE the 
 browser thinks the https page is already expired when it receives it and 
 therefore it won't return it to flash. 
 
 This is only an issue in Internet Explorer but it can be fixed if proper 
 cache headers are being set on the serverside.
 
 In JAVA/JSP the following extra cache headers solved the problem for me :)
 
 response.setHeader(Cache-Control, no-store); 
 response.setHeader(Pragma, no-store);   
 
 
 Hope that works

[Flashcoders] Windows media player embed in div over flash movie ?

2006-01-06 Thread grant
I am about to convert a tight comp to a flash movie, the comp is here :

I'm trying to decide if I should break the thing into 3 swfs in 3 divs and then 
have the movie player embed in its own div, or if I can do 1 flash movie and 
then 'float' the windows media player embed over the top of the flash movie.  I 
only need to support IE 5.5 or above.

Will the 2nd approach work and does anyone have an example I can look at ? I 
can figure it out but I don't have much budget for prototyping.

did you type your instance of oCore on root ?

if your data is not typed the iDE will not enforce access modifiers.

e.g

var core:Core = new Core()
trace (core.oParam); /// should not compile

var anotherCore = new Core()
trace (anotherCore .oParam); /// should compile as anotherCore is not typed.

because you are declaring it on root is probably not typed.  Why put it on root

 in the ParamMngr class, we can see

 into flash, on main stage, I've put the following:

 _root.oCore = new Core();

 trace(_root.oCore.oParam.mcGround);

 why? each variable is private... so how can it run?

If I have a main Application class I generally drag it to the stage and then in 
my external code I have the application start in the onload method of the 
class.  I never use root, in your case its probably not a big deal I just find 
sometime in the future a use of root would come back and bite me.

using _root is generally considered a no-no.

 I think you pointed right. 'will test it.
 Why on _root? because the project is a full external code, and this

 Is it better to make a CoreComponent and drag it to the scene?

 and theuse of it.
 
 into flash, on main stage, I've put the following:
 import com.domain.Core;
 _root.oCore = new Core();
 
 and then tried
 trace(_root.oCore.oParam.mcGround);
 -- it worked !!!
 
 why? each variable is private... so how can it run?
 
 thx,

[Flashcoders] Turning off flash mx UIScrollBar when nothing to scroll.

2005-12-12 Thread grant
Resent as it never got to the list

 I'm building this site :
 
 file:///D:/projects/bluetube/clients/amvescap/calendar2005/dist/container.html
 
 I'm using a textField for the content and the MM UIScrollbar for the scroll 
bar.
 
 After loading the text into the text field I tried this with the scroll bar :
 
 
 contentTextField.htmlText = contentLoader.text;
 scrollBar._visible = scrollBar.enabled;

 TRACE(scrollbar enabled state  + scrollBar.enabled);
 TRACE(scrollbar is  + scrollBar);
 
 
 I did a google search and one suggested I use the enabled property to 
determine if I should display the scrollbar but the scrollbar is always enabled 
even when there is nothing to scroll.  I want the scrollbar to be invisible 
when there is nothing to scroll.
 
 click on the December month to see one that should scroll and January to see 
one where there should be no scroll (but I still get a phantom scroll bar)
 
 Can someone help ?
 
 Thanks
 Grant

2005-12-12 Thread grant
found the fix via this site :

http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx2004/hide_scrollbar.htm

had to do

scrollBar._visible = (contentTextField.maxscroll 1)

so the scroll bar is only visible of the maxscroll of the field to be scrolled 
is greater than 1, simple fix, wish the damn scroll bar did that automatically 
:)

I'm having the same issue even without XPATH, I have a CDATA section in my XML

if I cut and paste the HTML to a string and set the text field to that it works 
as expected.  I've done this before and it worked, difference now is I'm 
compiling with MTASC and using flash 8 IDE.  I'm going to try a standalone fla

Subject: [Flashcoders] Xpath and HTML tags inside XML bug?

 Searched Google, no dice, when the chattyfig servers were down again, I
 turned to Flexcoders, no luck either.  Anyone who has experience with
 Xpath, I hope you can help.
 
 Problem overview: using Xpath, HTML tags inside of XML does not render,
 even with CDATA tags applied.
 
 Problem detail: I am using xfactorstudios' Xpath classes to bring in XML
 node data which contains text and HTML tags to display in a Flash text
 area component in the Flash 7 player.  Here is a snippet of the XML:
 

 
 http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/'Center
 for Devices of Radiological Health. More text...]]
   

 
 The text area component IS set to HTML=true, but when it renders, it
 shows the text plus the HTML:
 
Welcome to the Center for Devices
 of Radiological Health. More text...
 
 Does the same thing with a regular dynamic text field.  If I hard code
 the same string directly in the .fla, it renders properly in the text
 field and/or component. The string from XPath returns, interestingly
 enough, looks like this:
 
Welcome to the a
 href='http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/'Center for Devices of
 Radiological Health/a. More text...
 
 Not sure why Xpath is changing the string from . to /a,
 but Flash doesn't like it obviously.  Anyone come across this before and
 have a solution?

[Flashcoders] button width ?

I have a button that appears as a highlight behind a text field when the user 
rolls over the button the highlight appears.  I want the highlight width to be 
a little bigger than the textbox so when I populate the text box I measure it 
and set the width of the button, however this doesn't work, when I read the 
buttons width its 0, and this is when the button has been loaded, if i measure 
the buttons width when it receives a onRelease event its a valid width.  Is 
there some way to set the buttons width after loading, right now its giving me 
the bird.

yes doing that, when I do a trace when I have a CDATA section with hello and 
bold tags around it (not typing it as it won't be displayed in the flashlist) I 
see in the text field the hello with the html tags and the same in the trace, 
if I set a string to hello with bold tags around it and assign it to the same 
text field it works... I'll create a demo file and upload soon, I had a 
deadline so ended up using loadvars for the html content and that worked, but 
I've done the CDATA section stuff for my old site and it worked then.

 Don't know if this helps, but for html, you set:
 
 textArea.html = true;
 then:
 textArea.text = thestring; 
 
 ,but for textField, you set:
 
 textField.html = true;
 then:
 textField.htmlText = thestring;
 
 But you probably knew that.  I think that's really confusing the way
 Macromedia coded that.  Guess their developers weren't talking to each
 other enough.  
 
 What are you using to bring in the XML?  Before going to the textfield,
 the string is being traced out as having the HTML tags intact or no?
 
 The CDATA tags are correct in the XML as well?

1024 x 768 and testing made no difference... I did have a

Re: [Flashcoders] Need advice on XMLSocket architecture

can your client afford Flash communication server, it has true push technology 
to the flash application but its not cheap licensing.  Can you really push 
using an XMLSocket, I thought it was still request/response and not listen 
from the flash runtime unless you use rmtp and net connection.

Subject: RE: [Flashcoders] Need advice on XMLSocket architecture

 Tracy,
 
 I think you're going to find the latter of your two approaches to be more
 efficient and quite easy to accomplish, especially the server will be
 authored in .NET. If you're using the term port to refer to the actual
 socket, then you'll find that handling multiple clients concurrently is
 fairly easy to achieve without needing to filter results on the client side.
 
 The main issues you're going to find with this sort of thing (network /
 tunneling issues, thread management) will probably be non-existent in a
 controlled environment with 100 clients.
 
 I see the very basic architecture as something like this:
 
 Flash client  xml/ascii serialization/deserialization layer  .net
 socket server  xml/ascii serialization/deserialization layer  system
 internals or .net remoting to the service aggregator / whatever
 
 The other option in which you could avoid writing a server would be to poll
 (even though it seems yucky) very quickly. Probably not such a huge burden
 if you're on a lan and use flash remoting.
 
 Jim

 Subject: [Flashcoders] Need advice on XMLSocket architecture
 
 Hello,  I'm a regular on the flexcoders list, where it was suggested
 that I ask my question over here.  Any advice will be welcome!
 
 I have 100 fixed, identifiable clients running a Flex 1.5 app on an
 intranet.  A Dot.Net integration tier maintains individual states for
 each client. The integration tier talks asynchronously to third party
 apps over async tcp sockets and even mail transport.  I had planned on a
 leisurely polling setup to get the clients updated with changes in
 state, but I now have a requirement for an update with minimum latency.
 
 The messaging between clients and server is very low frequency (a few
 clients updated per minute) and very low message size (a few k per
 update).
 
 I am now looking at a true push connection using XMLSockets.  I see
 two approaches:  
 
 On would be to have a separate port connection for each client with each
 client only getting their messages, the other would be a single port,
 where all clients would get all messages, and ignore those that were not
 theirs.
 
 In my case performance, reliability and simplicity are most important,
 and scalability not so much an issue.
 
 Any suggestions, experiences, resources would be appreciated!!
 
 Tracy

Re: [Flashcoders] XPath Error...

2005-11-03 Thread grant
his XML is fine, its either the chattyfig server or our email clients stripping 
his xml..


//product[colors[clr='red']] will only return results if the first clr child 
node of the colors tag has a value of red.

the correct syntax to return any clr child of colors that matches red would be :

//product[colors/clr[.='red']]

but neither the xfactor studio xpath parser or the mx.xpath.xpathAPI classes 
return anything for that xpath query.  I tested it in internet explorer and it 
works fine.

 Hmm... it works if you nest the predicate bit to...
 
 //product[colors[clr= 'green']]
 
 ...apparently (after quick google) this is legal XPath.

[Flashcoders] Customer maps/mapquest ?

2005-11-03 Thread grant

I need to provide a client with the ability for the customers to have driving 
directions from their home to one of the clients 10 locations.  The map can be 
html or flash based and the driving directions are really the key part.

I looked at mapquest who provides a webservice, however their site advantage 
API is $5k per year which seem pretty damn high for what I need.  

The use case would be.

Customer clicks location they want to visit, customer types their address in 
and then clicks get directions, the system displays directions.  This would be 
almost the same as what we do manually when you visit mapquest as a consumer 
other than the fact we pre-populate the ending address.

I can't find if mapquest has a free webservice for getting directions or 
something lower in cost.

 5K a year is cheap when you consider the cost of not only hardware but the
 data(up to date) and software to do the deed. You could use a simple html
 form and just use a pop and supply the arguments needed to the mapquest
 page. Not 100% sure if that's okay or not, But would assume that since the
 use is going to there site, its just like they typed in the data.

[Flashcoders] Using the FocusManager

2005-11-01 Thread grant
I appear to be in focus manager hell.

I have an application with many forms each form is extended from movie clip 
and based on what menu option you have selected the form may or may not be 
visible.

For example I have create user and update user, if you have selected create 
user, then update user is not visible.  

both of these forms have the default push button set to their own push button, 
however in testing I'm finding that if I hit the enter key when the create user 
form has focus, the button on the hidden update user form is being activated.

The way I'm using focus manager right now is getting one by doing  

submitButton.getFocusManager.defaultPushButton = submitButton;

Is there some other way I'm supposed to use the focus manager, it seems like 
there is one for the whole application instead of 1 per movie clip, or one per 
form.  I tried attaching my own instance of the focus manager to each form but 
didn't see any good results.

Macromedias docs on how to implement focus management in a sizeable application 
with multiple forms is pretty non existent.


any help would be appreciated.

Re: [Flashcoders] Using the FocusManager

2005-11-01 Thread grant
I missed out the () sorry..

I have it working somewhat how I want, when a form is hidden I set focusEnabled 
to false and set the default push button to null and the new form activates it 
enables itself as focusEnabled and sets its own default push button. This has 
stopped my hidden forms processing when someone hits the enter key so I'm 
part way there.

I guess what I'd like is a focus manager per form or set of controls instead of 
a global one.  The issue I have right now is a have a panel with 2 forms on 
it and i can't get focus to jump from one form to the other even if I set the 
child property to true so the focus manager knows the panel has children.

The interesting thing was none of the macromedia docs recommend how to get a 
focus manager instance and doing  _level0.focusManager is not good programming 
practice for me.

Re: [Flashcoders] When migrate to Flash 8?

2005-10-28 Thread grant
I upgraded as they increased the stage size in the IDE, for example when 
designing for 1000 x 600 with the document set to that size in the flash mx2004 
ide I could not scroll far enough to the right when designing large movie 
clips, I'd have to to move all the symbols from 0,0 to something like -500 (x) 
to see all the symbols and then remember to move them back.  In flash 8 the 
stage is about double the size of the document setting so you can see 
everything, thats was reason enough for me as I build lots of forms for my 
current client :)

 Keep in mind too, you can still use Flash 8 and output Flash 7/AS2 content. 
 The IDE is a big improvement in speed  resource usage as well as fixing a 
 few bugs in Flash MX 2004.
 
 I've been getting myself into trouble designing in Flash 8 with my clients 
 expecting me to transfer the design to Flex 1.5 which is Flash 7 only... but 
 it DOES render out PNG sequences so all is not lost.

 I think you should base your decision on what the new improvements to
 Flash actually are, and see if you would make use of them with your
 clients... and if they are things that are going to be supported by the
 target player your market will have.
 
 At the same time, even still, its important to stay on top of technology
 as always.  That's usually a good investment even if you aren't going to
 be able to use many of the new features right away, you might see some
 improved efficiencies.
 
 For me, I have upgraded Flash every time it has been upgraded, but Adobe
 Illustrator, I am still using version 9 and don't see a need to upgrade
 it currently since I'm just not going to use the new features, or they
 aren't going to benefit me enough to justify the purchase.

 It has a

 though you

 OK I know for sure I'm not the only one this is happening to, but I
 wanted to get a consensus of how common this is.
 
 My Flash player keeps silently reverting to version 7, I don't know if
 it's a website I visit forcing a silent 'downgrade', or something to do
 with my PC (win XP).
 
 Anyone else experiencing this on the list? Solutions? Causes? Etc.

 Only thing that annoys the hell out of me is the 'rebuilding workspace'

 I tend to hit that after every word or so.
 I wasn't really aware of the fact I save my document *that* much... up to now.
 
 I'm using the standalone version by the way. I have both installed (eclipse 
 plugin and standalone), but use the standalone version 
 (for no particular reason).
 All in all, I'm quite happy with the IDE so far and like it *alot* more than 
 the sluggish Dreamweaver hack called Flex Builder 1.5.

 Subject: [Flashcoders] Flexbuilder 2 Alpha IDE problems
 
 
 I realize its still in Alpha, but has anyone noticed that highlighting
 long lines of code in the Flexbuilder 2 IDE is sometimes problematic, as
 the highlighting is sometimes delayed behind the cursor for as long as a
 few seconds?  For example, if I try and click and drag my cursor across
 the following line in order to highlight it for a copy/paste:
 
 
 
 The highlighting suddenly stops at the d in dataprovider and then
 continues, then stops again a few characters later, then continues, etc.
 It seems to be worse when I try and highlight from right to left instead
 of left to right.  Also, the problem is inconsistent as to what
 characters it stops at the next time I try.  Eclipse didn't have that
 problem as far as I remember.  Anyone else experiencing the same?  It's
 a fairly annoying problem that slows down work.
 
 Also, is there a proper place to report bugs in Flexbuider 2?  I
 couldn't seem to find a place on labs.macromedia.com - probably just
 missed it, or maybe its on macromedia.com
