Re: [Flashcoders] Converting hex colour numbers back and forth

Thanks for your responses guys. I'm still stuck on this and I have been
playing around a lot. I can get the number from the decimal format to the
hex string but when I try to convert it to a hex number the colour is
incorrect.
Any advice much much appreciated, this is taking up lots of time.

Thanks:



public function colorIn(o:Object):void
{
trace(===);
var colA:Array = o.Colors.split(,);
colA.splice(0,1);
for ( var i:uint=1; i=totSprites-1; i++ ) {
var c:String = colA[i];
trace(string colour:+c); //  e.g. for red: 16711680
//convert to decimal number
var tmpN:Number = Number(c);
trace(decimal:+tmpN); //  traces: 16711680
//convert to string of hex number
var hexStr:String = tmpN.toString(16);
trace(hexStr:+hexStr);  //traces: ff
//convert to hex number
var hexNum:Number = parseInt(c, 16);
trace(= = = = = = =   hex number:+hexNum); //traces in decimal format and
wrong number:  376510080
//set mc to color

 Subject: [Flashcoders] Converting hex colour numbers back and forth

 Hi there, I'm saving a bunch of colours as a string then using this
 string
 later to colour objects in the same way.  Something is going wrong
 though as
 the colours I am getting back are not the same as the ones I put in.
 If anyone could point out where I'm going wrong I'd be really grateful,
 I've
 googled this and and have checked the help files and as far as I can see
 it's correct (though obviously it isn't!).

 Here's my code, I've written comments next to the relevant lines:

Re: [Flashcoders] Converting hex colour numbers back and forth

2009-02-10 Thread Juan Pablo Califano
The problem seems to be here:

var hexNum:Number = parseInt(c, 16);

You're asking parseInt to convert a string to an integer and telling it the
string is an hexadecimal representation, when it's decimal, according to
this line:

trace(string colour:+c); //  e.g. for red: 16711680

So try,

hexNum:Number = parseInt(c,10);

If you have a number, you don't need to worry about decimal / hexadecimal.
It's just a number: you can have, say, the number 10, which would be
represented as 10 in decimal, 0xa in hexadecimal, 1010 in binary, etc,
but those are just a way to display a number. If you already have the
number, you don't need any extra step.

Hope this helps.

2009-02-10 Thread Sidney de Koning

Hi Ali,

If you need to switch between different number systems, you can also  
try this:


var myUint:uint = 0xff; // this is the colour red

trace (myUint.toString(16)); //will trace ff -- in hexadecimal  
system;
trace (myUint.toString(2)); //will trace  --  
in binary system;


Hope this helps,

Sidney

I usually don't use parseInt for this purpose I usually just cast it as a uint.

i.e.

uint(c);

would work as well.

glad you figured it out.

I haven't looked into it in detail, but I think you would want to use
parseInt( 0x + c, 16 ) here.
If that doesn't fix it, try tracing the values throughout your
conversion and see where it breaks.
