[flexcoders] Re: SWC generates server error

2005-04-27 Thread eerkmans


great, thanks a lot ! the error is fixed now.

Not many people work with SWC components it seems, so if you don't 
mind I'm asking you this other question that I havedo you happen 
to know why my SWC's screw up my flex interface? I've posted this 
problem as well:

When I place my SWC file in a custom folder instead of right next to 
my index.mxml, somehow all kinds of flex properties get overwritten 
by the SWC. (also the case with the flex button that generated 
the 'name' error)

For example, I can't use the property 'backgroundcolor' anywhere in 
my entire flex app anymore, and borders around containers aren't 
shown anymore.

Also, comboboxes get rendered with strange squares around their round
corners.

 Wow, that's a pretty obscure problem.  I wrote the code, and even 
I had
 to go dig through the code to see what its doing!
 
 This only gets triggered if the exporter sees an unnamed sprite 
with
 init actions (are you using #initclip?)
 
 It temporarily gives the sprite an export name (code dependencies 
are
 tracked based on names, so we give the unnamed sprite a unique 
handle),
 and then on export it warns you that its stripping out that name.  
The
 problem with unnamed sprites is that they don't work with the 
normal SWC
 versioning system - if you exported two copies of that SWC and 
copied
 them both to your libpath, it wouldn't be able to determine which 
was
 the newer version of your symbol, so it would end up including 
both.
 
 Coming up with a coherent message to print given that the thing its
 complaining about is an unnamed critter deep in the bowels of a big
 opaque file format is hard, so you got the confusing message that 
you
 saw.  However, it is only a warning, it shouldn't affect the 
behavior of
 your app.
 
 Note that importing code from Flash that uses #initclip is quite
 dangerous in Flex if the code has any class dependencies.  We only 
track
 class-to-class deps, not codesnippet-to-class deps.
 
 If you want to make the warning go away, make sure that you give 
your
 symbols export names.  Let me know if you need more details.

[flexcoders] custom skins for flex button

2005-04-27 Thread eerkmans


Hi,

I've got a problem with using custom skins in a flex button. I'm 
using the code below to export a flex button as an SWC component.

This works fine, but when you give the button a width of, say 100 
pixels, the corners get stretched out because it's just a single 
graphic symbol that is used as the skin for the button.

Flex itself uses three separate movieclips, the left side, the 
middle and the right side, so that the corners are always nice and 
round no matter what the size of the button is.

So how can I access my custom skin symbols in my flex button SWC ???

I'm strongly getting the idea that Flex is primarily aimed at people 
who don't want to customize anything because making a simple custom 
button can take you all day!

class TfeResetButton extends mx.controls.Button {

var falseUpSkin:String = falseUp;
var falseOverSkin:String = falseOver;
var falseDownSkin:String = falseDown;

static var symbolName:String = TfeResetButton;
static var symbolOwner:Object = TfeResetButton;
var className:String = TfeResetButton;

function TfeResetButton(){
}

function init() {
setStyle(fontWeight,normal);
super.init();
invalidate();

}

static var clipParameters:Object = {resetSkin:1};

function constructObject2(o:Object):Void {
super.constructObject2(o);
applyProperties(o, TfeResetButton.clipParameters);

}


}

You can use _url property of

file.

In http://myserver/test.mxml 
mx.core.Application._url would return http://myserver/test.mxml.swf

You can handle the change event of MenuBar. In change event, you can load
xml file and show the images in TileList or some other components.

RE: [flexcoders] Data Model

2005-04-27 Thread Abdul Qabiz
Model is compile time object, which means you can only mention source on
compile time. If you want to load different XML on runtime, you should use
HTTPService instead. What I understand from your code is, you are loading an
xml into a Model and binding Model to MenuBar's dataProvider.
 
Following is a quick example, that allows to load two different xml data for
MenuBar. You can see, how HTTPService is able to load xml files on runtime
and result is bound to MenuBar dataProvider.

You can find the attached file, place in flex application directory and run
the HTTPServiceExample.mxml.
 

 
1) ##HTTPServiceExample.mxml##
 
?xml version=1.0 encoding=iso-8859-1?

{
service.url = menudata1.xml;
service.send();

}

function loadMenudata2()

RE: [flexcoders] Vertical Text- is it possible?

2005-04-27 Thread Abdul Qabiz
Hi Nithya,
 
It's not there by default, but you can do it by keeping one character per
line in a Label or TextArea or TextInput. You can write a simple
VerticalLabel component that would do it for you. For example:
 
Look code below or find attached files.


Hope that helps

RE: [flexcoders] binding error - from Flex?

2005-04-27 Thread Tom Fitzpatrick

Tracy - thanks for the suggestion. My problem is that I'm not really 
changing anything, just making a copy of the whole app folder, renaming it, 
and trying to compile it again from the new folder - so I don't really know 
where to put the extra code.

I'm ready to try the file deletion suggestion, but need more info. I'm 
running Flex locally using Tomcat, so I have generated files in my local 
project folder and in my local server folder. Which ones do I delete? Both? 
Do I leave the libs folders alone? And - most important - is there any 
danger in doing this or any precautions I should take?

- Tom

At 09:47 PM 4/25/2005, you wrote:
Ignore the message, add some code, and run the app again.  I have also
hit a situation where this did not work until I had deleted the files
out of the ...web-inf\flex\generated folder, then compiled it again.
But usually, 10-15 more lines of code gets me over the hump.

If you believe you app is as refactored as is reasonable, give this a
try.

[flexcoders] problems with dropShadow

2005-04-27 Thread Duccio Del Ministro

Hi,
i have a problem with dropShadow inside a component.
In my class contructor i added an event listener:

addEventListener( mouseDown,
Delegate.create(this,myMouseDownHandler) );

My event listener (located in the same class) looks
like this:

public function myMouseDownHandler(event) : Void
{   
setStyle(borderColor,0xff);   
setStyle(backgroundColor,0xff);   
setStyle(borderThickness,3);  
setStyle(shadowDistance,0);
setStyle(dropShadow,false);   
setStyle(borderSides,left top right bottom);
}
Well, when the mouseDown event is fired i see the
borderSides appear but no changes made by borderColor,
backgroundColor, dropShadow, shadowDistance
properties. Why?
Best Regards
Duccio Del Ministro

[flexcoders] Newby: How to use Manage Sites

2005-04-27 Thread Libby Chantel

I'm new to Flex and keep having trouble with the
Manage Sites thing in flexbuilder, so I was hoping
someone could explain how MM intended for it to be
used. I am doing flex tutorials and  for each new
tutorial, I am forced to create a new site. Then fb
doesn't seem to remember it the next time I open the
tutorial. I am running flex and java on my local pc as
well as saving/running my flex files on a remote java
server.

I was expecting that I could create a site on each
machine, then choose which one to use for each new
mxml file I create. Or, switch back and forth between
sites wile testing the same files. How is it really
supposed to be used?

Thanks,
Libby

Hi,

I have a datagrid with a cellrenderer.  It does validation, however we

[flexcoders] Setting icons in Buttons

2005-04-27 Thread rockmoyosa


I'm creating an array with Buttons, then a set the label and icon.
When i display them, I only see the label and not the icon!! 

I tried:


var buttonArray = new Array(ar_documents.length);
for(var i=0;ibuttonArray.length;i++){
buttonArray[i] = Button(owner.createClassObject( Button,
button+i, 2+i, owner));
buttonArray[i].label = ar_documents[i].title;
buttonArray[i].styleName = (readmore);

[Embed(source=news2.jpg)]
var newsIcon:String;

Button(buttonArray[i]).icon = newsIcon;
Tracer.trace(buttonArray[i].icon:  + newsIcon);

buttonArray[i].labelPlacement = left;
buttonArray[i]._x = 0 + i*85; 
buttonArray[i]._y = 65; 
}

but also:

Button(buttonArray[i]).icon = @Embed('news2.jpg');

[flexcoders] Event Listeners; Flex internal question for flex gurus

2005-04-27 Thread AC


Hello

I have a control which dynamically changes a given control (TextInput
to ComboBox and visa versa) depending on the user selection. This
happens numerous times within the life time applications lifetime. 

The dynamically created control gets event-listeners attached to it. 
When this control is destroyed what happens to the event object that
was attached to it? Should removeEventListener(...) be used to
remove the event before the object is destroyed?

If so, can someone tell me is it possible and how can I inspect an
object to see what eventListeners have been added to it? 

Thanks in Advance
AC

Re: [flexcoders] DataGrid Cell Validation

2005-04-27 Thread Jim Laing

The only way I think this would be possible is to use a subclassed
DataGrid: You would override setFocusedCell() to check validation and
stay if not valid.Otherwise, call super.setFocusedCell()

Nithya,



 All
effect triggers, like mouseDownEffect are styles. You need to access them using
getStyle and setStyle. 



Instead of 



basketPanel[mouseDownEffect] = basketMoveRight;



Use 



basketPanel.setStyle(mouseDownEffect, basketMoveRight);

RE: [flexcoders] binding error - from Flex?

2005-04-27 Thread Tracy Spratt

The generated files I am talking about are under 
..[flex-root]\WEB-INF\flex\generated| folder in the Flex server. There
are several folders with generated names. It is safe to delete them.

If you get the 32k error on one server but not another, that really
sounds like a boundary condition.  Try running the one with the error
using the ?debug=true request parameter.  This causes debug code to get
generated into the app and has, in the past allowed us to continue.

Tracy - thanks for the suggestion. My problem is that I'm not really 
changing anything, just making a copy of the whole app folder, renaming

and trying to compile it again from the new folder - so I don't really
know 
where to put the extra code.

I'm ready to try the file deletion suggestion, but need more info. I'm 
running Flex locally using Tomcat, so I have generated files in my local

project folder and in my local server folder. Which ones do I delete?
Both? 
Do I leave the libs folders alone? And - most important - is there any 
danger in doing this or any precautions I should take?

Ignore the message, add some code, and run the app again.  I have also
hit a situation where this did not work until I had deleted the files
out of the ...web-inf\flex\generated folder, then compiled it again.
But usually, 10-15 more lines of code gets me over the hump.

If you believe you app is as refactored as is reasonable, give this a
try.

RE: [flexcoders] Newby: How to use Manage Sites

2005-04-27 Thread Tracy Spratt

Below is an explanation of sites from an MM authority.  The upshot is
you want to have one site that corresponds to your Flex server.  I have
no experience with remote server setups.

***
If you have nested sites, then sometimes Flex Builder will have trouble
figuring out which site a particular file corresponds to. We need this
information to make sure we use the correct url prefix and testing
server location when previewing or debugging the file. Each site should
correspond to one context root on your server. The default installation
of Flex has one context root which is just /. So even if you have
separate applications under that context root (one in the flex folder,
one in the samples folder, etc.) you should still only have one FB site
set up that points to the root of the context root. You would have to
just work on each sub-application by opening it from its subfolder in
the one site you have set up. 

If you have multiple context roots defined, for example if you had flex/
as a context root and samples/ as a separate context root, then you
should have one site for each of these because they will have separate
URL prefixes. In this case, even if they both live in the same folder
you do not need a site set up for their parent folder. 

I hope this clears things up a bit. To answer your questions about why
it sometimes puts files in the wrong location because of how your sites
are set up, it's probably because you have a different current site
set in your Files panel than the site which your open document belongs
to. 

Let me know if you have any more questions...

RE: [flexcoders] Vertical Text- is it possible?

2005-04-27 Thread Abdul Qabiz

Yeah,
 
you can use Label's  _rotation property. But you would need to embed the
font if you want to rotate a Label,TextInput or TextArea..
 
For example:
 
##RotateLabel.mxml##

mx:Application xmlns:mx=http://www.macromedia.com/2003/mxml; width=425
height=400
   mx:Style
  @font-face { fontFamily:myfont;
src:url(file:///c:/windows/fonts/Georgia.TTF); } 
 
   /mx:Style
   
mx:Canvas
   mx:Label fontFamily=myfont fontSize=16 id=out _rotation=45
text=This is a label alpha=20/ 
/mx:Canvas
/mx:Application

RE: [flexcoders] Setting icons in Buttons

2005-04-27 Thread Abdul Qabiz

Hi,

Try defining newsIcon variable in application scope instead of inside a
loopThat's is something I doubt...

Compiler embeds the asset in the swf and assigns the symbol name(linkageID)
to the variable. Since this variable is a local variable, it might not be
working...


Like:


[Embed(source=news2.jpg)]
var newsIcon:String;

var buttonArray = new Array(ar_documents.length);
for(var i=0;ibuttonArray.length;i++){
buttonArray[i] = Button(owner.createClassObject(
Button, button+i, 2+i, owner));
buttonArray[i].label = ar_documents[i].title;
buttonArray[i].styleName = (readmore);

Button(buttonArray[i]).icon = newsIcon;
Tracer.trace(buttonArray[i].icon:  + newsIcon);

buttonArray[i].labelPlacement = left;
buttonArray[i]._x = 0 + i*85; 
buttonArray[i]._y = 65; 
}

RE: [flexcoders] Re: SWC generates server error

2005-04-27 Thread Roger Gonzalez

I think someone else already posted the answer.  The Flash version of
the framework classes are different than the Flex version.  You need to
register the Flex version of the classes into Flash (this is
complicated, but see the docs, they're pretty extensive on this).

All SWCs in your libpath (which includes your app directory, by default)
are merged together and resolved by versioning.  (If you unzip the SWC
and look at the catalog.xml file, you can see the version numbers on
each definition).  If there is a Flash class with a higher version than
the Flex class with the same name, you will get the behavior you
describe.

Best practices is actually to not build the components in Flash, but
rather to just build the assets in Flash and export them in a SWC.
Then, build the components in Flex and attach the assets to your Flex
components using Embed.

Cheers,

-Roger

 great, thanks a lot ! the error is fixed now.
 
 Not many people work with SWC components it seems, so if you don't 
 mind I'm asking you this other question that I havedo you happen 
 to know why my SWC's screw up my flex interface? I've posted this 
 problem as well:
 
 When I place my SWC file in a custom folder instead of right next to 
 my index.mxml, somehow all kinds of flex properties get overwritten 
 by the SWC. (also the case with the flex button that generated 
 the 'name' error)
 
 For example, I can't use the property 'backgroundcolor' anywhere in 
 my entire flex app anymore, and borders around containers aren't 
 shown anymore.
 
 Also, comboboxes get rendered with strange squares around their round
 corners.

  Wow, that's a pretty obscure problem.  I wrote the code, and even 
 I had
  to go dig through the code to see what its doing!
  
  This only gets triggered if the exporter sees an unnamed sprite 
 with
  init actions (are you using #initclip?)
  
  It temporarily gives the sprite an export name (code dependencies 
 are
  tracked based on names, so we give the unnamed sprite a unique 
 handle),
  and then on export it warns you that its stripping out that name.  
 The
  problem with unnamed sprites is that they don't work with the 
 normal SWC
  versioning system - if you exported two copies of that SWC and 
 copied
  them both to your libpath, it wouldn't be able to determine which 
 was
  the newer version of your symbol, so it would end up including 
 both.
  
  Coming up with a coherent message to print given that the thing its
  complaining about is an unnamed critter deep in the bowels of a big
  opaque file format is hard, so you got the confusing message that 
 you
  saw.  However, it is only a warning, it shouldn't affect the 
 behavior of
  your app.
  
  Note that importing code from Flash that uses #initclip is quite
  dangerous in Flex if the code has any class dependencies.  We only 
 track
  class-to-class deps, not codesnippet-to-class deps.
  
  If you want to make the warning go away, make sure that you give 
 your
  symbols export names.  Let me know if you need more details.

RE: [flexcoders] custom skins for flex button

2005-04-27 Thread Roger Gonzalez

Assuming you are compiling that component code in Flex,

[Embed(source='your.swc', symbol='falseUp')] var falseUpSkin:String;

the value after embedding will be as if you typed your version (the
parse tree is modified).  Yes, you could put the symbol name in
explicitly, but the compiler won't notice it as anything but a string.
You need to trigger the linker dependency on the symbol.

 Subject: [flexcoders] custom skins for flex button
 
 
 
 Hi,
 
 I've got a problem with using custom skins in a flex button. I'm 
 using the code below to export a flex button as an SWC component.
 
 This works fine, but when you give the button a width of, say 100 
 pixels, the corners get stretched out because it's just a single 
 graphic symbol that is used as the skin for the button.
 
 Flex itself uses three separate movieclips, the left side, the 
 middle and the right side, so that the corners are always nice and 
 round no matter what the size of the button is.
 
 So how can I access my custom skin symbols in my flex button SWC ???
 
 I'm strongly getting the idea that Flex is primarily aimed at people 
 who don't want to customize anything because making a simple custom 
 button can take you all day!
 
 class TfeResetButton extends mx.controls.Button {
   
   var falseUpSkin:String = falseUp;
   var falseOverSkin:String = falseOver;
   var falseDownSkin:String = falseDown;
   
   static var symbolName:String = TfeResetButton;
   static var symbolOwner:Object = TfeResetButton;
   var className:String = TfeResetButton;
   
   function TfeResetButton(){
   }
   
   function init() {
   setStyle(fontWeight,normal);
   super.init();
   invalidate();
 
   }
   
   static var clipParameters:Object = {resetSkin:1};
   
   function constructObject2(o:Object):Void {
   super.constructObject2(o);
   applyProperties(o, TfeResetButton.clipParameters);
   
   }

RE: [flexcoders] Newby: How to use Manage Sites

2005-04-27 Thread Sho Kuwamoto





I asked some of the folks from the Flex Builder team, and 
here's what I found out:

* You should define a site for each "server", such as http://localhost:8700/flex/, or http://localhost:8700/samples/

* If you have multiple projects on each server, (i.e., 
multiple flex apps within /flex/ or /samples/), do NOT create new sites for each 
one.

The reason is that Flex Builder needs to have access to 
WEB-INF, which must be at the top level of your site.

Also, if you are flipping back and forth between a local 
server and a remote testing server, set up a testing server in your site 
definition. 

Hope this helps!

This is actually more of a Flash question than a Flex question.
MovieClips are (*cough*currently) somewhat funny critters with an less
than obvious contract.

Anyway, you'll probably want to use MovieClip.createEmptyMovieClip():

[flexcoders] Segue is First to Provide Performance Testing Support for Macromedia Flex

2005-04-27 Thread Tarik Ahmed






Segue is First to Provide Performance
Testing Support for Macromedia Flex; SilkPerformer Optimizes
Performance of Flex Applications, Ensuring a Positive User Experience


LEXINGTON,
Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 27, 2005--Segue Software (NASDAQ-SCM:
SEGU), the leader in software quality optimization(TM) (SQO(TM)), today
announced that SilkPerformer(R), Segue's performance testing solution,
provides support for Macromedia(R) (NASDAQ: MACR) Flex(TM) 1.5 and the
Action Message Format (AMF) protocol. With this announcement, Segue(R)
extends the comprehensive range of enterprise technologies
SilkPerformer already supports to the Flex environment. Macromedia Flex
is the leading presentation-tier solution for delivering enterprise
rich Internet applications. 

SilkPerformer from Segue is an enterprise-class performance testing
solution for optimizing the performance of mission-critical
applications. With SilkPerformer, an organization can accurately
predict the breaking points in an application and its underlying
infrastructure before it is deployed. AMF is a communication protocol
Flex applications can utilize for client to server communication.
Organizations use Flex to develop applications that enhance the
richness of the user experience - for example, a financial services
firm could deliver a portfolio management application that lets users
visualize their portfolio and make real-time investment decisions. 
"We are using SilkPerformer to optimize the performance of Vision 4
- our next generation, primary-care healthcare solution based on Flex,
Java and Oracle(R) 10g technology," said Simon Fanthorpe, development
director at UK-based In Practice Systems Ltd, a leading provider of
healthcare information systems. "We have to be able to support up to
10,000 simultaneous users, while still delivering sub-second response
times. Every millisecond we can shave off of the user experience has a
huge impact on overall system performance. SilkPerformer allows us to
model a variety of user profiles and to vary the load conditions to
simulate normal and peak usage. SilkPerformer will play a significant

RE: [flexcoders] binding error - from Flex?

Tracy - thanks. Deleting the generated files did the trick.

The generated files I am talking about are under

If you get the 32k error on one server but not another, that really
sounds like a boundary condition.  Try running the one with the error
using the ?debug=true request parameter.  This causes debug code to get
generated into the app and has, in the past allowed us to continue.

Tracy - thanks for the suggestion. My problem is that I'm not really
changing anything, just making a copy of the whole app folder, renaming
it,
and trying to compile it again from the new folder - so I don't really
know
where to put the extra code.

I'm ready to try the file deletion suggestion, but need more info. I'm
running Flex locally using Tomcat, so I have generated files in my local

project folder and in my local server folder. Which ones do I delete?
Both?
Do I leave the libs folders alone? And - most important - is there any
danger in doing this or any precautions I should take?

 But usually, 10-15 more lines of code gets me over the hump.
 
 If you believe you app is as refactored as is reasonable, give this a

Subject: RE: [flexcoders] MovieClip and Flex question


 I'm new at using movieclips with Flex, so if I may ask a basic 
 question please. 
 
 I'm trying to make a movieclip appear in my flex application, but for 
 some reason, it's not working. Here is my code in the initialize 
 handler of my flex app:
 
   var mcSplash = new MovieClip();
   
   mcSplash.width = 200;
   mcSplash.height = 200;
   mcSplash.setStyle(backgroundColor, 0xFF);
   mcSplash.x = 200;
   mcSplash.y = 200;
 
 All I'm trying to accomplish here is just to see if a 200 x 200 pixel 
 red square would appear, but it's not.
 
 Could someone give me advise on how to do this right, please?

This is actually more of a Flash question than a Flex question.
MovieClips are (*cough*currently) somewhat funny critters with an less
than obvious contract.

Anyway, you'll probably want to use MovieClip.createEmptyMovieClip():

[flexcoders] where to place a subClassedComponent.as file ?

2005-04-27 Thread sanjayd


I have subclassed 'DataGrid' to create my own class (this code resides
in a file called 'FilterableDataGrid.as'):

class acControls.FilterableDataGrid extends mx.controls.DataGrid {
.
.
.
}


then, I use this class in my mxml file, like this:

?xml version=1.0 encoding=utf-8?

This is the compile error I get:

Don't know how to parse element
ArcheuscapControls.*:FilterableDataGrid. It is not a known type or a

Any ideas ?? both the .as  .mxml files are in the same directory.

[flexcoders] Trying to grab handle to a child in a canvas

2005-04-27 Thread kredding.geo


I am having trouble grabbing a handle to a child inside a canvase.  
All children are created by using createChild

myCanvas.createChild(mx.controls.TextArea,newTxtFld+i, {x:xLoc, 
y:yLoc});


I have a button that when pressed, I am trying to grab a handle to 
the last child created.  I want to copy the TextArea to a Text 
control and remove the TextArea.  Here is the code for that.

function buttonPressed() {
if (i0) {
  var oldi:Number;
  var idx:Number=i;

  oldi=i-1;  //I am using i-1 to get the last child because earlier 
i was incremented.

  //newTxtFld is used for the Text Areas.
  //newTxt is used for text controls.
  var txtAreaChild = myCanvas[newTxtFld+idx];
  myCanvas.createChild(mx.controls.Text, newTxt+oldi, 
{x:txtAreaChild.x, y:txtAreaChild.y, text:txtAreaChild.text});

  myCanvas.destroyObject(txtAreaChild);
}

}

Flex doesn't seem to be able to grab a handle to the TextArea 
child.  What am I missing?

RE: [flexcoders] Trying to grab handle to a child in a canvas

That argument to createChild is not the same as the Flex id.

Instead, add the id after you create the child
var newChild:Object = myCanvas.createChild(..
newChild.id = newTxt+oldi;

I believe that will work.

[flexcoders] NetStream instance in Media Components

2005-04-27 Thread kaibabsowats


Is there a instance of NetStream or PlayerNetStream in the Media
Components?  If not does the Media Components create some instance of
the NetStream or PlayerNetStream some where else?

The closest thing to FCS and Flex is:
http://coenraets.com/viewarticle.jsp?articleId=90

In his LiveMediaDisplay class he calls:
mx.controls.streamingmedia.PlayerNetStream.prototype.play
= function (s)
{
super.setBufferTime(1);
super.play(s);
}

I know this is not calling an instance but overiding the play method
of PlayerNetStream.  But where is the instance?  super has to be
referencing a instance some where right?

What I am doing right now is I have a Media Component (both Playback
and the Display/Controller) that loads a FCS streaming flv by
setMedia, with a url like rtmp://fcsserver/app/instance/some.flv.  It
loads the flv just fine, but the buffering is causing me troubles.  As
the start event on the Media Component doesn't relate to the
buffering.  Basically I am looking for an event that really means the
flv is ready to play, as I am trying to sync some swf's to it.

RE: [flexcoders] NetStream instance in Media Components

2005-04-27 Thread Matt Chotin










Hmm, in the code I wrote the start
event generally fired right around the time things were ready to go. Even if I
called play(someNon0Time) start would fire when the buffer had reached the
point that I was ready to play (I think). 



The instance is very buried in the code
and not really meant to be exposed. I dont have any reliable way of
telling you what to look for.

Title: Is there a javascript flashObj.callFunction(), like setVariable?










I believe youre only allowed to
call setVariable. And yes you can create a setter and do it that way.

Using
javasript in a custom HTML wrapper, Is there flashObj.callFunction(),
like there is a setVariable() method?

Or
will
setVariable() work with a setter method? (Hmm, surely I
can
create
a setter in mxml, right?)

Hi Tracy,
 
There is no callFunction(..) like method for flash activeX or plugin. But
there is setVariable(..) method. 
 
Yes, you can set a variable or setter from Javascript using setVariable
function. I have create a example, it allows you to execute flex function
from javascript...

It's very basic example but you can adopt similar approach and do it more OO
way by creating classes in JS and AS...

 
1) FlexJSExample.jsp
 
%@ taglib uri=FlexTagLib prefix=mm %
HTML
HEAD
meta http-equiv=Content-Type content=text/html;  charset=ISO-8859-1
TITLEFlex-JS Communication Demo/TITLE
 

script language=javascript
   
 
//this function return to Flash ActiveX Object or Plugin depending upon
browser
//it takes care for browser type and returns the proper reference.
//Accepts the id or name of OBJECT or EMBED tag respectively
function thisMovie(movieName) {
  // IE and Netscape refer to the movie object differently.
  // This function returns the appropriate syntax depending on the browser.
  
  if (navigator.appName.indexOf (Microsoft) !=-1) {
return window[movieName];
 
  } else {
   return window.document[movieName];
  }
}
 

/**###**/
//success flag, set by flash/flex app
var bFunctionCallFinished = true;
//param delimiter, kind of unique string
var paramDelimiter =  --$$###$$##$$--;
 
//this function would call a flash/flex function.
function callFlashFunction(functionName, paramsArray)
{
if(bFunctionCallFinished) 
{
//Get the reference so activeX or Plugin.
 var flashObject  = thisMovie(flexApp);
 
bFunctionCallFinished = false;
flashObject.SetVariable(functionName, functionName);
flashObject.SetVariable(functionParams,
paramsArray.join(paramDelimiter));
flashObject.SetVariable(commitFunctionCall, true);
}
else
{
//if previous function call is still being run, you can use
setTimeOut etc to call it little later...
}

}
 
/**###**/
 
/script

  var paramDelimiter =  --$$###$$##$$--;
  
  //setter, which executes the function and send the success flag back to
javascript
  public function set commitFunctionCall(flag:Boolean):Void
  {
  var func:Function = this[functionName];
  
  func.apply(this, functionParams.split(paramDelimiter));
  getURL(javascript:bFunctionCallFinished=true;void(0));
  
 }
 
 /****/
 
 
 function sayHi(name:String)
 {
 alert(Hi  + name);
 _ta.text += name + newline;
 }
 
 
 function setNum()
 {
 var n = arguments.length;
 for(var i=0;in;i++) 
 {
 _ta.text += arguments[i] + newline;
 }
 } 
 
  
  
 ]]
 
 
 /mx:Script
 mx:TextArea id=_ta width=200 height=200/
  
/mx:Application
/mm:mxml
 
input type=button value=Say Hi onclick=callFlashFunction('sayHi',
['Abdul']);/
input type=button value=Send Number
onclick=callFlashFunction('setNum', [1,2,3]);/
/BODY
 
/HTML
 
 
 
 
BTW! Based on above principle, I made a JS-Flash libarary long back. Take a
look at it for an idea...
