As far as you know it was use two. But it might have been only YOU and no
one else ;)

Makes you wonder. Huh?:)

I know what you mean about plain text formatting. Its happened to me in the
past, when I've used my signature with a logo in it. Doesn't work very well.


Have a great day,
John

FW: [Flashcoders] help with frame navigation and xml

2009-08-28 Thread Merrill, Jason
 Howdy Jason,
Didn't see a reply from you come through. Just you query (tit)... ;),
then
the email that said you answered it before. Nothing in between them.

That happens to me on this list sometimes, but only this list.  Seems
this list only accepts pure text formatted e-mails and if you forget
that and send in another format, it rejects your messages silently.
Sorry about that.

Isaac, here was my reply to your question yesterday from the thread,
help with frame navigation and xml:

You don't need any code inside the clip, I think you're approaching this
the wrong way around.  Why have the XML node based on the frame's label?
You already know it's going to intro since you have to tell the
MovieClip to go there. Do something like this instead:

var destination:String = intro;
myClip.gotoAndPlay(destination);
myClip.myTextField.text = myXML.myNode.(@destination);

Or could be this if your text is in the text node:

var destination:String = intro;
myClip.gotoAndPlay(destination);
myClip.myTextField.text = myXML.myNode.(@destination).text();

Hope that helps,

[Flashcoders] help with frame navigation and xml

2009-08-26 Thread Isaac Alves
Hi,

I'd like to have a function that tells a MovieClip to go to a specific
frame and then in this frame, look for a scpecific tag in an XML file,
based on the frame's label, and then take some text (a  bunch of
actually) that is in the XML node and put it on a TextField.

For example, clicking on a Next Frame button it will go to the next
frame (which has a label intro) of the movieclip and then search
content.xml for the tag that contains the attribute name equal to
intro and then put the content of the @text node into an empty
TextField that is already positioned in this intro frame.

Am I obligated to have the code in this specfic frame?

I'm doing it because if I have too much text within textfields in an
FLA file it becomes incredibly lagged and therefore impossible to
work.

I've tried to use the event ENTER.FRAME to do that but it rendered the
SWF lagged and consomming way too much memory...

Help !! Thanks in advance!!
Isaac
