Re: [Flashcoders] loadmovie

2008-02-29 Thread Marc Hoffman

Theodore,

How was holder_lesson created? If it has been scaled up from some 
other mc, the loaded movie will also be scaled up. Best to use a 
non-scaled clip as a holder. AS2 example:


this.createEmptyMovieClip(holder_lesson,this.getNextHighestDepth());
holder_lesson._x = 10; // or wherever you want to place it
holder_lesson._y= 10; // or wherever you want to place it
holder_lesson.loadMovie(lessons/ + _root.wlesson + .swf);

As Bob mentioned, you can also resize after loading but you must wait 
until the onLoadInit event has fired. In AS2 you'd use 
MovieClipLoader class to handle this.

And if you are loading it into a clip that you've set _xscale + _yscale on,
the movie replaces those properties when it's loaded. loadMovie essentially
replaces the movie it's called from, wiping its properties.

Yes, my apologies.

I guess I was mixing up dynamic properties with the standard properties.

Dynamic properties do get wiped, but standard ones are preserved, as Marc
states.
loader2.idiot = jonathan;
loader2.onRelease = function(){
this.loadMovie(circle.swf);
}

// then once it is loaded
trace(loader2.idiot); // traces undefined, (which is clearly not true. we
know exactly who the idiot is, yes?)

 Test the base movie. loader1 loads the circle as a circle. loader2

Easiest way is to create an xml directory at the place where the main

resides and set the path as xml/1.xml

also copy this directory in the screens directory

so ths ame path will work for both :)

Hi,
i think this applies to using an html file in location a loading an swf from
location b.
Seeing Amanda has two different basepaths, setting the base to nr 1 will
confuse nr 2 and vice versa.

Copying everything to the same directory like Bob said seems a good and
simple solution though:).

One simple solution would be to physically move your controller swf into 
the screens directory and run it from there. Then they'll all have the 
same path and no retrofitting needed.

Thanks for your replies! It seems that, despite my fondest hopes, there is
no easy way to retro-fit hundreds of SWFs originally built without this
loadMovie() requirement in mind.

I should mention that this project is not actually going online - it is
going to be converted to an EXE using Zinc and distributed via CD. So I
can't use absolute paths.

[Flashcoders] LoadMovie in Mozilla

2007-02-27 Thread Sumeet Kumar
 

Hi 

 

I have a function fnLoadMovies ().

This function loadMovies(.swf files) from an array which is generated
dynamically.

Sometimes this array contains values like 'undefined' or 'null '.

 

In Internet Explorer 

 

When mc.loadMovie(undefined) is called it works fine.

 

But In Mozilla 

 

The plugin  behaves differently

It unloads the existing movie from the holder.

 

Has any one experienced the same problem?

 

Any suggestion on this  question will be of great help.

 

Thanks in advance

RE: [Flashcoders] loadMovie question

2007-02-02 Thread Alain Rousseau
You should try masking your movieclip through code, as you are loading into
it with code :

movieclip_a.masked.setMask(movieclip_a.mask);
then your masked movieClip should remain masked even if you load a jpeg
inside it.

I say should, but I've not tested this precise setup ...

Yes or use the MovieClipLoader class

var mLoader:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
mLoader.load(movieclip_a.masked, image.jpg);

If you load your jpeg to a depth of 0 it might overwrite the masked
movieClip and thus you lose the mask as for the skewing, have you rotated or
modified your clips inside the IDE before applying your modifications ? this
might affect the actual way it is resized. Othewise I'm with you ... this is
indeed weird.
You might have to rebuild a new Flash file if this persists ...

it sounds like you might be targeting the main clip and not the nested clip
beneath the mask.

mc 
mc.mask, mc.holder_mc (empty) - beneath the mask on a layer

mc.holder_mc.loadMovie(foo.jpg);

- should be affected by the mask layer inside of the mc movieclip

[Flashcoders] loadMovie question -- better explaination

2007-02-02 Thread [p e r c e p t i c o n]

ok so i noticed that where i have the clip that i'm loading into matters...

so here's how my movieclip is set up.

there are about 20 frames

the background spans all 20
the mask begins at frame 10 as does the clip that i'm trying to load the jpg
into...

before i load the jpg i goto frame 10 so it should be a valid clip at that
point, but that's when i get the target errors,
i moved the clip i'm loading into to frame 1 and the error goes away, but no
jpg


???

thanks

RE: [Flashcoders] loadMovie in a duplicated movieclip

2007-01-17 Thread Don
Sorry Jason, I was typing from memory, not copy / paste...

this[newName]._x = menu_ds.HorizontalPos;

Doesn't work for me, and the only reason I ended up using eval() is because
it's the only thing that worked!

This code doesn't work...

duplicateMovieClip(dupButton, newName, i);
this[newName]._x = menu_ds.HorizontalPos;
this[newName]._y = menu_ds.VerticalPos;

I scoured the net and eval() was the only answer I could find...

I'm publishing Flash 8, AS2

Thanks...

Improper syntax.  Try:

this[newName]._x = menu_ds.HorizontalPos;

Also, would recommend against using eval() in this case and use the []
operator instead.

RE: [Flashcoders] loadMovie in a duplicated movieclip

2007-01-17 Thread Merrill, Jason
Well, to dig deeper, it's hard to comment because I don't know what
_root.menu_ds.hasNext() does, or how _root.menu_ds.Type is set, or
how dupButton is determined.  There could be any number of things
wrong there.  Why are you using a while loop out of curiosity?  Also, I
usually avoid duplicateMovieClip because I always see people complain
about it - either buggy or it's limitations.  For those situations, I
usually create an empty movie clip and attach from the library.  Not
saying that's the right approach, just what I have found works best for
me in most situations.

eval() is the old way, Adobe is pushing Actionscript to sctrict ECMA
specifications, which means using the [] operator instead.  If
this[newName] doesn't work, then something is wrong with the scope,
and I don't know where your clips are set up relative to that statement.
Have you tried sprinkling some traces in your code to find out what's
failing and where?

RE: [Flashcoders] loadMovie in a duplicated movieclip

2007-01-17 Thread Don
Hi Jason,

I've put buttons in the duplicated movieclips, and they always trace back as
+level0.button_28 or whatever the button number was when created...

I've also traced every variable coming from menu_ds and they all work as
they should... The while loop and the hasNext() come right out of the help
files when iterating through a dataset, I had never used either before.

I think the next step is to look into creating an empty movieclip and
attaching from the library...  This is just too much headache to be worth
it...

Thanks for your time...

Don

RE: [Flashcoders] LoadMovie library

2006-08-10 Thread Bart Albrecht
Tony,
 You just have to access them from the scope they where born to.
I can access them indeed in the scope where they are created. But the
problem is that I can't add other assets (movieclips) to that scope. 

I want this because I want to separate code from viewing assets, and import
different templates. 
I want for example to put my video object on the scope of my imported assets
so I can mask my video object. I want to use a mask of the imported assets
and I want to put some imported assets like a shadow border on top of my
video. This is only possible if I get my video object on the same scope as
the imported assets or if I get the assets that I want on top of the video
object in a different movieclip (duplicatemovieclip).

RE: [Flashcoders] LoadMovie library

2006-08-10 Thread Bart Albrecht
I think I will be forced to use the bitmap class of flash 8 to take a bitmap
of the imported assets and copy thos bitmaps on to the stage :-s
This has 2 big disadvantages:
- processor overkill, first load a movieclip into a container, take a bitmap
copy of that movieclip, create new movieclip, put that bitmap into the new
movieclip, remove the movieclip from the container (imagine this for 500
assets ...)
- the quality of a bitmap is not that of a vector, so I will have to make
the vector movieclips quit big so I don't lose to much detail when I make a
bitmap and a user scales his window to a bigger screen.

I'm getting disappointed by Flash, how old is this program? And you can
still don't have a good working runtime external library.

How about if you loadMovie your entire Library SWF into your main SWF, 
then access your library files via mainSWF.librarySWF.libraryAsset syntax?

Not sure, but you may have to create instances of your library asset on the 
stage and name them properly...

[Flashcoders] LoadMovie library

2006-08-08 Thread Bart Albrecht
Hi,

 

I looked on the internet and did not find the answer. I read a few times
can't be done

What I want to do is load movieclips in my main.swf from a library.swf and
put those movieclips on the root or put movieclips from the root in the
controller of my loadmovie.

Secondly I want to add a movieclip who is in my main.swf library to the
controller_mc. But this is not possible.

 

I also try to put a movieclip which I loaded from the library.swf to the
root. But also that is not possible.

 

I cannot make use of the shared library because the name of the library.swf
should be dynamic.

 

Here is the code:

Where I load a circle mc from the library.swf into the controller_mc. This
works.

Where I load a circleRoot mc from the library of the current swf to the
controller_mc. This does not work.

Where I load a circle mc from the library.swf onto the current root. This
also does not work.

 

this.createEmptyMovieClip(controller_mc, 1);

var libMovie = library.swf;

controller_mc.loadMovie(libMovie);

 

this.onEnterFrame = function(){

var tLoaded, tBytes;

tLoaded = controller_mc.getBytesLoaded();

tBytes = controller_mc.getBytesTotal();

var percentage = int(tLoaded*100/tBytes);

 

if (isNaN(tBytes) || tBytes  4) return;



if (tLoaded/tBytes = 1) {

delete this.onEnterFrame;

//attach circle from library.swf to controller_mc in
the main.swf

controller_mc.attachMovie(circle, circle_mc,
controller_mc.getNextHighestDepth());  //OK

 

//attach circleRoot from main.swf library to

Re: [Flashcoders] LoadMovie library

2006-08-08 Thread Michael Bedar

First of all, try MovieClipLoader to load your swf's..

If you don't want to use a runtime shared library, then I'd suggest  
making each movieclip you want to load at runtime a separate swf.


You can export MovieClips directly from your library.

also, as long as it is set to export for actionscript, you can attach  
any MC you want, to any other MC you want at runtime.

RE: [Flashcoders] LoadMovie library

2006-08-08 Thread Bart Albrecht
Thx for your reaction.
Unfortunately a shared library for each movieclip, would result in over 1000
swf's and this all for just calling some movieclips from an external
library, is overkill I think.
I hope there is still a better way for doing this.

How about if you loadMovie your entire Library SWF into your main SWF, 
then access your library files via mainSWF.librarySWF.libraryAsset syntax?


Not sure, but you may have to create instances of your library asset on the 
stage and name them properly...

[Flashcoders] loadMovie not working over http

2006-02-12 Thread Justin Raymond
Hi all,

I have a loadMovie function attached to an empty movie clip. The movie
is only loaded in when I open the swf directly or view an HTM file in
which it is embedded locally. 

As soon as I open either the page or the swf over http:// the loaded
movie fails to load.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance.

this is complete nonsesnse, take a look to the manual,

create new movieClip, and load to it
and most important: you have to wait for the movie being loaded, which is

RE: [Flashcoders] LoadMovie Problem?

2006-01-31 Thread Merrill, Jason
Well, a couple of reasons.  I mean you can, it's possible, but the reason for 
container clips is so you have the ability to load more than one clip. If you 
load into _root, everything in that movie clip will be replaced by the new clip 
you are loading in, and if you try and load a second clip into _root, only the 
second clip will appear, the first clip will be overwritten:

loadMovie(clip1.swf, _root);
loadMovie(clip2.swf, _root);
//only clip2.swf will appear

And loading from c:, I can't see how that would be wise in almost any 
circumstance, but maybe you have a reason to do so.  

As for _root itself, a lot of people will tell you its not wise to reference 
it, because as Flash applications gain hierarchies, _root changes often and is 
not a reliable reference to hard code into your application.

I don't mean to be harsh, only to answer your questions.  Hope that helps.

This line:

_root.Test.loadMovie(clip.swf, _root);

Should either be:

Test.loadMovie(clip.swf);

or

loadMovie(clip.swf, Test);

(and drop the use of _root gollygoshdarnnit!)

You have instead combined both methods.  By stating the movieClip name first 
and then LoadMovie, the second paramter is not needed.  If you don't state the 
movieClip being loaded into first and then LoadMovie, then you do need the 
second paramter to tell it where to load the movie clip in to.

// code in second movie clip.
// Displaying the name of the movie clip creating in first 
clip to load
the clip.
trace(_root.Test._name);

Now it will work fine. But in case of loading the movie in root it is
not working. It will load its first page only. Please let me know if I
am not able to clear the problem.

Well, a couple of reasons.  I mean you can, it's possible, but the
reason for container clips is so you have the ability to load 
more than
one clip. If you load into _root, everything in that movie 
clip will be
replaced by the new clip you are loading in, and if you try and load a
second clip into _root, only the second clip will appear, the 
first clip
will be overwritten:

loadMovie(clip1.swf, _root);
loadMovie(clip2.swf, _root);
//only clip2.swf will appear

And loading from c:, I can't see how that would be wise in almost any
circumstance, but maybe you have a reason to do so.  

As for _root itself, a lot of people will tell you its not wise to
reference it, because as Flash applications gain hierarchies, _root
changes often and is not a reliable reference to hard code into your
application.

I don't mean to be harsh, only to answer your questions.  Hope that
helps.

Hey Jason,
Thanks for your reply. Sorry, it was just a typo mistake (C:\\
pages.swf). I just want to know problems of loading the SWF file on
root movie. Creating a new movie clip and loading that SWF 
file in that
will solve the purpose but it is not clearing my doubt.

Let me explore this problem in more detail.
If I am loading the movie clip in some other movie clip 
(except root)
then the control will be still in previous movie. But I want 
the control
in new movie clip which I am going to load. Is it making any sense?
Please correct if I am wrong.

You also have a space in there:

I would not recommend loading from c:  -you can't guarantee the file
will always be there can you?  Loal from a relative url instead, and
don't try and load into _root - create and empty movie clip 
instance,
and load into that.

Hi All,

 

I am trying to load a new SWF file on root movie clip using 
following
action script code, but it is not working properly. It is 
loading its
first frame only. But the SWF file (to be loaded) is having 
more than
one pages.

 

loadMovie(C:\\ pages.swf, _root);

_root.gotoAndStop(3);

 

Any solution?

Hi Jason,

Again thanks for your reply.
But still my doubt is not clear. Please check the following
code...

// Code on first movie clip.
_root.createEmptyMovieClip(Test, 1);
_root.Test.loadMovie(clip.swf, _root);

// Introducing a dummy time interval to wait until SWF file is not
loaded.
_root.$SI = setInterval(_root.func, 10);
function func () {
if ((_root. Test.getBytesLoaded() == _root.
Test.getBytesTotal())
 _root. Test._height  0  _root. Test._width
 0) {
// Going to second page in loaded movie.
_root.Test.gotoAndStop(2);
clearInterval(_root.$SI);
_root.$SI = undefined;
}
}

// code in second movie clip.
// Displaying the name of the movie clip creating in first clip to load
the clip.
trace(_root.Test._name);

Now it will work fine. But in case of loading the movie in root it is
not working. It will load its first page only. Please let me know if I

[Flashcoders] LoadMovie Problem with JPEGs

2006-01-22 Thread Robert Sandie
Having a problem loading in an image within an AS2 class and LoadMovie with
jpegs. It loads the image perfectly but as soon as it does this it
automatically deletes all existing variables that are running within the
class. Instead of it losing all information  upon loadMovie would like to
keep it.

 

class ui.overlay extends EventClip {

 

.

 

public function showImage(url:String, text: String):Void{

this.loadMovie(url);

this.text=text;

_delegate = EventDelegate.create(this, onHitDataGrid);

datagrid.addEventListener(datagrid, _delegate);

}

 

private function onHitDataGrid(e:Object):Void{

trace(text); //works when don't load the jpeg.. does not work
when I do load the jpeg.

..

}

 

 

I have tried loading the movie into another movieclip inside of this class
and still no success. This is a little unusual and really my first time
loading in Images dynamically.  

 

Been struggling with this one for a while. Anyone know what might be going
on?

Pressed SEND too soon and caught an oops!!

it should be :
//
  public function overlay(){
holder_mc=createEmptyMovieClip(holder_mc,1);

}
//

 Not sure the setup but the vars are getting wiped away for sure so its
 some kinda scoping issue.Loading the movieclip into this should wipe
 the variables out. Loading them into an emptymovieclip, shouldn't.





 class ui.overlay extends EventClip{
 // not sure what eventClip is but whatever..

   private var holder_mc:MovieClip;
   private var text:String;

   public function overlay(){
  holder_mc.createEmptyMovieClip(holder_mc,1);

[Flashcoders] loadMovie question

2005-12-11 Thread Simon Lord
I have a movieClip on stage and a movieClip in the library that has  
an identifier. The idea is to get the movieClip (which is exported  
for runtime) to load into the movieClip which is on stage.  It serves  
as a placeholder until an image is called for elsewhere.


For whatever reason I just can't get this to work:

viewer.loadMovie(placeholder);

Just to expand on that,

loadMovie loads an external SWF or JPG (and more in Flash 8) into a

attachMovie loads a named MovieClip from your flash library into a

attachSound() - method which attached sound object from library
if want load sound you must use method loadSound()

if you say gotoAndPlay(step2) in event onSoundComplete() - you say
it objSound but not you movie
use link to movie clip, example:

var objSound = new Sound();
var handler = this; //link to movie clip with label step2

objSound.attachSound(step1)
objSound.start(0, 0)
objSound.onSoundComplete = function(){
 handler.gotoAndPlay(step2)
}
stop();

 Although I can not get the sound to play when loaded into the parent
