[flexcoders] Re: DYNAMIC actionscript child layout.

Doh! Jeffry is right, it's a Canvas which positions child components by x,y 
coordinates.

So use a VBox or HBox or something :)

   I think that x and y values are defaulted to 0, 0; which would put 
 your text in the top left of the canvas.  The box may layout the canvas, 
 but will not lay out children of the canvas.
 
  This looks like it might be a createChildren method?   I would usually 
 position elements in the updateDisplayList method.

[flexcoders] Re: parse SOAP response for values

2009-02-18 Thread m_ollman
Tracy :-)

Thought about the namespace issue - some examples where talking about
the SOAP Header being removed automatically, I was'nt seeing that. The
reult format is E4X. However I could not get into the structure using
childNode etc.

So I would start by defining the namespace it.

SOAP-ENV...
typ=http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types

in AS 

public var typ:Namespace =
new
Namespace(http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types;);


Next step I'm not sure about the path to the attribute.

WS.Assess.lastResult.typ::session-data.global.global_1.abc570.

WS.Assess.lastResult.typ::assess-response.session-data.list-entity.entity.abc570

Will test in the morning when back at desk. Rushed out so fast I left
my USB! doh

Cheers
martin

Re: [flexcoders] Send a confirmation Email

2009-02-18 Thread Laurent Cozic
This would open the user's email client, and I don't think he would want the 
user to send the confirmation email to himself. I think that the right way 
would be to use a server side script that would take the username as a 
parameter, build the email and send it.

You can do that quite easily in PHP:

Then in Flex, just use URLLoader to call the PHP script.

Any ideas regarding Air and some problems when it comes to network issues?

Application.application.url will give you the url of the *swf file*, not the 
url of the document within which the app is embedded. For that, the only way is 
to use Javascript and ExternalInterface. I think the syntax is:

var docURL = ExternalInterface.call(location.href);

or it might be document.location.href - not sure which one is right.

The assigned width of label2, with two characters, is significantly

[flexcoders] Re: problem with services-config.xml in multiple work environments..

2009-02-18 Thread Walter
I also prefer to configure services
(ChannelSets/Channels/RemoteObjects etc...) at runtime. Typically I do
this by reading in the configuration property values from an XML file
when the application loads. There are a couple of IoC/DI (Inversion of
Control/Dependency Injection) container implementations (SWIZ and
Spring-AS to name a couple) that also make this very easy. However,
you don't need to be that sophisticated; simply getting the property
values from an xml file will accomplish your goal and remove your
dependency to the services-config.xml so can avoid baking in those

 That way you can generate a single swf, and it adapts to the environment

 Subject: [flexcoders] problem with services-config.xml in multiple work
 environments..
 
  
 
 Basically..
 
 We develop on localhost:3000, we test on http://dev.oursite.com,
 http://dev.oursite.com,  and
 we go live on https://www.oursite.com. https://www.oursite.com. 
 
 I need 3 different environments, one for each environment.
 
 Right now I have to recompile the SWF everytime I want to create it
 for a new environment.
 
 Obviously, when we have multiple people using it on localhost, I have
 to create these swf's too often.
 
 I was hoping there is a way that I can set up services-config.xml to
 point to the right url...
 
 I would almost like to set up a daisy chain or something, it tries
 www, if it can't get that, it tries dev, if it cant get that, it tries
 localhost.
 
 Any help would really be greatly appreciated...

[flexcoders] Re: ClassCastException on updateItem

2009-02-18 Thread manuel347
Hi,

I imagine that at this time you solved your problem, but i found your
post.

I had the same problem with a simple app.

The problem is that the app doesn't know your VO (Value Object) and
for that reason flash player marks ClassCastException; for solving
you have to declare a var with your VO at your flex app:

mx:Script
   private var item:Item;
/mx:Script

That's all.

[flexcoders] No codecompletion available

2009-02-18 Thread secrit.service
Hi all,

I'm new to Flex, so I will probably ask some simple questions. 
However to me they look huge.
One of the situations I encounter now is following :

filename = Application.mxml
---
Application
script source = Application.as/
CustomComponent id=myComponent/
/Application


filename = CustomComponent.mxml
---
Text
script source = CustomComponent.as/

/Text


filename = Application.as
-
Because my Custom Component is based on a Text, I want to set the 
fontsize. Therefore I want to write a line of code like this :

myComponent.fontSize = 40;

But when I write myCo and press Ctrl+Space it does not recognize my 
component. When I write the scriptcode inside the mxml-file, there is 
no problem.


filename = CustomComponent.as
-
When I want to set a property of the component, which is accessible 
via mxml, it wont work.

When I write this.fontSize = 40;

It will even not recognize the property fontSize.


Can anyone give me an explanation for this behavior?

Thanks in advance

[flexcoders] Time stamping a user Logout

2009-02-18 Thread grg_blls
Hi all,

I have concluded a sample Flex application where a user logs in (or 
registers) in the application. 

I use the Tomcat servlet container plus BlazeDS RPC component and 
Hibernate persistence to connect to MySQL database. 

A new user first registers by filling the Registration form. The 
database is updated for First Creation Timestamp, along with user's 
UserName and Password. 

A returning user fills a (similar) Login form. The database is 
updated for Login Timestamp. When the user does a normal Logout, the 
database is updated with Logout Timestamp. On User's Logout the 
User_Loged session time is summed in UserTotalLoged time.

My problem is that I need dispatch/listen (?) an event in an abrupt 
case, like the user instead of doing a normal logout simply closes 
the browser, or the client/server connection is just lost. Then I 
have to update the database that the user status is Logout. 

I hope this description is clear enough for some indications/help.

Thank you all
George
   



Re: [flexcoders] Time stamping a user Logout

2009-02-18 Thread Laurent Cozic
You could make the app ping the server every 5 minutes. Then if the server 
doesn't receive the ping, assume that the user closed the browser and log him 
out.

Another simpler solution would be to put a timeout on the session.

Re: [flexcoders] Can I use mouseOver() an image in ActionScript

2009-02-18 Thread Jeffry Houser

 What problems did you have trying to accomplish this? 

 Without testing anything, I would expect the DataGrid to 'capture' the 
mouseOver event as opposed to the itemRenderer component.  So, I'd 
expect you'd need some way to trigger a function in the renderer based 
on the DataGrid mouseOver . 

 But, this is just my first guess.

[flexcoders] Re: Can I use mouseOver() an image in ActionScript

2009-02-18 Thread yossi.baram
Hi,
this is rather complicated.
I have a DataGrid, in one of its column I call an ItemRenderer that 
creates a list of colored images side by side.
All I need is to catch the event when I hover over every inner cell 
image (remember, in a cell I have few images, each one should fire 
different event).
How do I trigger a function in my renderer?

My ActionScript renderer:
package
{

import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
import mx.containers.HBox;
import mx.controls.Image;
import mx.controls.Alert;

public class imageRenderer extends HBox 
{   
public function imageRenderer():void{
super();
this.setStyle(paddingBottom,1);
this.setStyle(paddingTop,1);
this.setStyle(horizontalGap,1);

}
 
// Here I create the colored images I place in HBox in the cell

 override public function set data(value:Object):void {

   if (value != null)
{
removeAllChildren();
for (var i:int = 0; i  value.Actual.length; i++){
  var img:Image = new Image();  
  img.source = value.Actual[i].image;  
  img.id = image -  +i;
  img.height = 20;  
//img.toolTip=value.Actual[i].width;
  img.percentWidth=value.Actual[i].width;   
  img.maintainAspectRatio=false;
  addChild(img);
} 
  }
}   
}
}

I dont want to use flex tooltip, I need to place my own and for that 
I need an event for each of the images seperatly.

Thanks for the help

Hi Laurent.
Thank you for a quick reply. I had this (second) timeout option in

But what I have really in mind is a more dynamic asynchronous 
procedure. One like when the web connection is broken for any reason. 
I will have to delve more into this...

[flexcoders] Re: Dynamically changing Vslider or Hslider?

2009-02-18 Thread flexaustin
I guess maybe I should use Programaticaly rather than dynamically. 
The entire issue lies in the change event. If I rely on it then I end
up in a continous loop or rather just a loop, meaning if I change the
Vscale via my component by scaling it, I have to change the
Vslider.value, which ends up throwing the change event, which tells
my component to update. So each side is stepping on the toes of each
other overwriting the changes when scaling on component side nothing
happens when I try to scale as Vslider keeps setting the value back.

My work around for now is to not update the slider until the component
zoom is done.  Had to give up realtime update to the Vslider. Vslider
is updated now only on mouseup not on mousemove.



--- In flexcoders@yahoogroups.com, flexaustin flexaus...@... wrote:

 I seem to be having issues altering the vslider via code.  I am using
 the change event thrown by the Vslider to dispatch my own event like so
 
 this.dispatchEvent( event );
 
 So anytime someone changes the Vslider value it throws an event and my
 components scales in size.
 
 But my component has the ability to change its own size using mouse +
 keyboard controls.  So when this happens I then need to tell the
 Vslider to change its value to match the components new size.  So I do
 that via function like so
 
 mySlider.value = newVal;
 
 This seems to work nine times out of ten, but if my Vslider is a 4.5
 (my Vslider can go btwn .25 and 5) then I scale the component to 5
 then click on the Vslider to scale down to .25 the change event isn't
 ever thrown via the Vslider though the slider thumb moves to where I
 clicked on the Vslider.

Re: [flexcoders] Module Issue....

2009-02-18 Thread Eric Dunn
I am a newbie and not sure what type of listeners you mean... 

The thing that stands out the most for me is the Module swf file is never 
compiled I moved both the main mxl and module mxl into the root to insure 
they are where they aught to be... 

Have any ideas as to why the module is not compiled?

Make sure the SWF is where you think it is. Other than that, looks ok. Attach

[flexcoders] Flex Remote object call - in vmware

2009-02-18 Thread Netaman
Has anyone ran into the problem of Flex remote object call working for

The setup is a IIS 6.0 server front-end facing the Internet and the

with Flex 3 application making remote calls through CF to SQL server

What are the input parameters of the operation “SearchParams”?  What data

values? 
 
The request object is a dynamic “Object”, not xml. build it something like this:

RE: [flexcoders] How to stop Flex from compiling my Java source files

2009-02-18 Thread Ryan Graham

 Java source files are in C:\Tomcat5\webapps\FlexApp\WEB-INF\src. When
 I build my Flex application, it tries to recompile the Java source
 files. Is there a way I can tell Flex Builder to leave my Java source
 files alone? It's causing me servlet errors.

 

Switch to ANT for more granular builds?

Hi Go to Flex Builder - windows - install / update... - here you

On next screen Search Results an Europa Discovery Site...
Expand and select your required stuffs only.

don't worry just finish selection of  your required stuffs(options)

I was about to begin creating a Combobox component that would allow
the user to select multiple items via checkboxes next to each item. 
However, I didn't want to reinvent the wheel in case someone else had

With that being said, has anyone seen this type of component?  If so,

Instead of using Text component, use TextArea component. May be, you have to

RE: [flexcoders] Re: parse SOAP response for values

2009-02-18 Thread Tracy Spratt
Unless your xml is very simple, you should not guess at the e4x
expession, but rather work your way to the node you want by using
temporary variables and tracing the results as you go.

 

To do this you must use a resultHandler, and do not use lastResult.
Start with something like:

private function handleResult(event:ResultEvent):void

var xmlResult:XML = XML(event.result)

trace(xmlResult.toXMLString());  //CRITICAL step, verify your structure

 

Then get the next node in the path you want, trace again, etc.

Thought about the namespace issue - some examples where talking about
the SOAP Header being removed automatically, I was'nt seeing that. The
reult format is E4X. However I could not get into the structure using
childNode etc.

So I would start by defining the namespace it.

SOAP-ENV...
typ=http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types
http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types 

in AS 

public var typ:Namespace =
new
Namespace(http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types
http://ruleburst.com/ruleserver/9.1/rulebase/types );

Next step I'm not sure about the path to the attribute.

WS.Assess.lastResult.typ::session-data.global.global_1.abc570.

WS.Assess.lastResult.typ::assess-response.session-data.list-entity.entit
y.abc570

Will test in the morning when back at desk. Rushed out so fast I left
my USB! doh

Application.application.url will give you the url of the *swf file*, not
the url of the document within which the app is embedded. For that, the
only way is to use Javascript and ExternalInterface. I think the syntax
is:

var docURL = ExternalInterface.call(location.href);

or it might be document.location.href - not sure which one is right.

[flexcoders] Help with Timer issue

2009-02-18 Thread trishhartnett
Hello all, 

I'm a Flex newbie. I'm working on an application where an end user
clicks a button, and when the button is clicked a DB is queried
repeatedly until a particular result is returned. When the result is
returned the end user gets a confirmation message to tell them that
they were successful.

So the code goes like this:

private var dBTimer:Timer = new Timer(5000);

private function onButtonClick(): void{
  dBTimer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, timeTick);
  dBTimer.start();
}

public function timeTick(evt:TimerEvent):void {
   checkStatus(callBackFunction, id);
}

 private function callBackFunction():void 
 {
 if( status == 'SUCCESS' )
 {  
   // cancel the timer
   dBTimer.stop();  
   dBTimer.reset();
Alert.show(Succcess string,Info,OK,null,null,INFO_ICON);
  }else{
  //do nothing and the checkStatus 
  //will be called again  at next TimerEvent
   } 
}

So the first time the end user clicks on the button, everything works
okay. The DB is queried and when SUCCESS is returned the dBTimer is
stopped and reset. The end user gets the Success Alert dialog box and
everything is okay.

The second time the end user clicks the button, everything happens the
same as before, only the dbTimer, despite being stopped doesn't stop
working. checkStatus is called over and over again in an infinite loop
because the dbTimer never stops.

Can anyone suggest anything please ? I am really puzzled by this one.

Best Regards, 
Trish.



[flexcoders] design question: editing / saving complex value objects

2009-02-18 Thread Maciek Sakrejda
Suppose I have a class Calendar that mirrors a server-side class (we're
not really working with Calendars, but I think this is a reasonably good
and simple analogy):

class Calendar {
public var appointments:ArrayCollection;
/* other stuff */
}

Then I want users to be able to edit and save the Calendar: I have a
CalendarEditor. Editing a Calendar is moderately complicated (e.g.,
adding, removing, or editing Appointments), so I want explicit
save/cancel steps.

When editing something really simple, this is not really a problem--when
the user saves, I propagate the view state to the object; when she hits
cancel, I don't do anything.

However, the Calendar determines what combination of Appointments is
valid (they can't overlap), and the Calendar is the dataProvider of the
CalendarEditor, so I can't fully validate a combination of Appointments
without adding them to the Calendar. This means I actually need to add
the appointments to the Calendar before it is saved so that they can be
(a) validated in combination and (b) used to update the view while the
edit is in progress. This makes save/cancel steps trickier: do I

(1) Clone the Calendar (and therefore have it provide a clone() method)
when assigned in the dataProvider, modify the clone, and assign the
dataProvider reference when the user hits save.
(2) Clone the Calendar as above, but have the Editor modify the
original, and restore the clone in case the user cancels.
(3) Something more clever?

The problem with (1) is that cloning may be somewhat complicated, and it
feels ugly to have the Editor update the dataProvider reference
(instead of modifying the actual object that was set as the data
provider). (2) hits the same issue. Perhaps the solution is to maintain
a private clone, and copy back the state on save? Or is the right answer
here that the model should not expect that the editor will update the
object it set as the dataProvider, but should instead expect an update
through a mechanism like a Mate map?

Any thoughts? (Please keep in mind that my experience with MVC
frameworks is unfortunately minimal, though I'm looking into Mate right
now).

Thanks,
Maciek








[flexcoders] Re: Desperate Help! crossdomain.xml

2009-02-18 Thread cjcuccaro

We ran into a similar situation with having the crossdomain.xml policy
file in a subdirectory of a site.

The phase 3 change that went into affect with FP10.02 requires the root
directory of the site to have a meta policy file (policy file for policy
files) that allows for the use of policy files in subdirectories. If it
is missing then the site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies
defaults to master only, causing all other policy files to fail
security check.

Therefore, the crossdomain.xml meta policy file placed in the root
directory will have the following:

?xml version=1.0?
!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy
SYSTEM http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd
http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd 
cross-domain-policy
!-- The crossdomain meta policy file must be copied to the root of
your site --
!-- Allow subsite policy files --
site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies=all/
/cross-domain-policy

Then the subdirectory policy files will look something like the
following:

?xml version=1.0?
  !DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy
SYSTEM http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd
http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd 
  cross-domain-policy
allow-access-from domain=YourDomainHere to-ports=80 /
!--above is best practice OR
allow-access-from domain=* /--

allow-http-request-headers-from domain=YourDomainHere
headers=* /
!--above is best practice  OR
allow-http-request-headers-from domain=* headers=* /--
  /cross-domain-policy

The important part is having the meta policy file in the root directory.

Hope this helps,
CJ

You are adding an event listener every time yu click the button.  I
don't know that this is the problem but it makes me suspicious.  Either
remove the event listener in the success condition, or add it one time
in an init function. See if that chnges the behavior.

 

Other than that, simplify the setup to the minimum and see if the issue

fontSize is a style, not a property. To set fontSize, use
myComponent.setStyle(fontSize, 40);

Easiest way to work out what's what is to look at the flex docs.

2009/2/18 secrit.service secrit-serv...@hotmail.com:
 Hi all,

 I'm new to Flex, so I will probably ask some simple questions.
 However to me they look huge.
 One of the situations I encounter now is following :

 filename = Application.mxml
 ---
 Application
script source = Application.as/
CustomComponent id=myComponent/
 /Application


 filename = CustomComponent.mxml
 ---
 Text
script source = CustomComponent.as/

 /Text


 filename = Application.as
 -
 Because my Custom Component is based on a Text, I want to set the
 fontsize. Therefore I want to write a line of code like this :

 myComponent.fontSize = 40;

 But when I write myCo and press Ctrl+Space it does not recognize my
 component. When I write the scriptcode inside the mxml-file, there is
 no problem.


 filename = CustomComponent.as
 -
 When I want to set a property of the component, which is accessible
 via mxml, it wont work.

 When I write this.fontSize = 40;

 It will even not recognize the property fontSize.


 Can anyone give me an explanation for this behavior?

 Thanks in advance

Will using the sortOptions property on a DataGridColumn do what you
want?

Hmm. I don't think that is supported in Flex 3
(http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/mx/controls/dataGridClasses/DataGridColumn.html),
although that would have been nice.

Both of the other solutions looks pretty promising. I will probably do

Yes, I found the link.  Is that good enough for us to assume it is
open-source?  The code itself does suggest that it is open-source, and
that we can use it as is, etc.  

It was developed with Flex 2.  Can I use something that was created in
Flex 2, inside Flex 3?  I did get some warnings about deprecated tags
and it selected a change to the name for Flex3, which seemed to work
fine.  As a rule, will it be possible to use Flex 2 apps and edit them
in Flex 3?
Thanks,
Bruce

[flexcoders] Reading an UTF-8 document

2009-02-18 Thread Andrew
Please forgive me if the is a post about this already but i can't seem
to find it.

I am creating an AIR app to convert characters into their HTML entity,
hex and dec value and I have just come across an issue.  I am reading
in xml files which contain the data, these files are saved in a UTF-8
format.

When I open it using a Filestream it stops after the first 3
characters ÿþ.  I know that these characters are the start of a
unicode document, but I can't figure out why it is stopping reading
the file there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



[flexcoders] event passing when source/destination are on different parent bubbling chains?

2009-02-18 Thread Mic
In an app that has many parent and child components, how does one
communicate across bubbling chains? I need to go up from a buried
child component source to its parent, across to another of the
parent's children, and down that chain to a child destination. Can
this be done in Flex, or do I create my own event subscription
component where anybody from anywhere can subscribe with a
self.reference? TIA,

Sounds like you're describing the controller's function in MVC
architecture. Usually an event is triggered by some sort of user
interaction in hopes of changing the state of the application in some
way.  If you store the state in some sort of centralized model
somewhere, the controller can react to user events, update the model's
state properties accordingly, and let any part of the view that is bound
to the model update itself on property change. Is that the setup you are
running right now? Are you passing data with this event that other
components need?

 

HTH,

 Hmm. I don't think that is supported in Flex 3

 although that would have been nice.

 Both of the other solutions looks pretty promising. I will probably do
 something like what Adrian suggested, in order to keep things as

[flexcoders] Re: event passing when source/destination are on different parent bubbling chains?

2009-02-18 Thread Mic
Hi Ryan, we are running Cairngorm with UM extensions. Theoretically I
need to dispatch a UM event with callback where that callback is to a
component other than the dispatching component. And because source and
destination are so far apart conventional bubbling is not an option.
Scenario: Because site visitors can be visitors or clients, the login
component is just one child of several of a parent component. When a
site visitor attempts to log on, Cairngorm/UM handles event
propagation and handling, including saving server results in
modelLocator VO etc. But if the login is successful, other components
need to react - their functions must be called. One such component is
a child of a child that is a peer of the login component. Even if I
could grab a reference to the destination component function, and send
it with the UM event from the source component, this feels like ugly
hardcoding. Waving a magic wand I would be able to dispatch an event
from anywhere and listen for it anywhere, without the limitation of
only being able to bubble up the parent chain. This seems totally
logical to me as obviously it is illogical to have to design one's gui
architecture based on who needs to talk to who. Thanks for listening :-)

[flexcoders] Re: ToolTip stay until closed

2009-02-18 Thread flexaustin
Thx Alex.

I thought about that , but I need it look and function like Google
Maps when you click a marker (like its part of the app). If I use the
popupmanager can I have the popup follow a sprite on the stage?

My sprites are on layer that you can drag around (similar to google
maps) so if the user drags the background sprite all sprites on its
displaylist will move and the popup/tooltip need to move with it. 

My app is very cpu/memory intensive so what I am using as of right now
is a permanent custom canvas using the new FXG to draw a popup looking
box with a pointer (like google maps) then when I want to show it over
the node I call 'move' and move it into position.  I need to keep all
my 500+ Sprites lite (they just contain a bitmap). So in keeping it
lite I did one canvas in Application that I enable/disable/alpha0?1
when it needs to be displayed.  I am only allowing one popup in my app
to keep cpu/memory use low and I short on screen realestate.  

Any help is appreciated!

Yes, you can reposition the popup (move (x,y)), by capturing the

[flexcoders] Re: Flex Apps on Flash 10 Crashes Browser

2009-02-18 Thread Don Kerr
Glad to know I'm not alone.

Couple follow on questions:

What is the difference between Flash 9 and Flash 10 with respect to memory?  
I never had memory issues with these Flex apps when running Flash 9. So, my 
users have o 
downgrade to 9 to stay live.  Not progress.

Is this issue unique to Flex apps or does it occur with any Flash-based app?  
Just curious.

Do you have to be running Flash 10 debug with Flex Builder 3 in order for the 
compiled 
swf to not cause memory problems when the client loads the swf in Flash 10?  in 
other 
words, do we have to make any changes to our SDK/IDE for Flex 3 to support 
Flash 10 
clients?  So far, for years, I not had to. But, maybe something is different 
with Flash 10.

Craziness.  Lesson Learned is to test all Flex apps when new betas come out for 
new 
versions of Flash Player.  See if they blow up and provide bug reports to 
adobe.  But, you'd 
think you shouldn't have to do it and they would be upward compatible?

I just want to solve the crash problem my users are reporting.  It is 
frustrating.  My hope is 
adobe would chime in here and at least explain what is going on and that they 
are 
working it.  I don't know what else to try other than downgrading users to 
Flash 9.

Hope we see progress on this asap.

Don

 I do know for a fact that player 10 crashes when it runs out of memory. In
 player 9 you get errors when you attempt to do something and it can't get
 enough memory. I would like to know if this is going to be fixed soon also.

  Still no resolution on Flash Player 10 bugs that crash IE7, IE8, firefox.
   It is a memory error.
 
  All my Flex 3 apps work fine with Flash Player 9, but crash the browser
  when the user
  upgrades to Flash 10.
 
  There are many bugs reported on this in adobe's bug tracker, but I do not
  see any status on a
  bug fix that indicates anything is being done to fix it.
 
  Does anyone else have problems with their Flex 3 apps when the user
  accesses them via
  Flash Player 10?
 
  Is anyone aware of any Flex 3 code that doesn't work in Flash 10 that might
  be causing the
  crashes?
 
  Any updates on any pending patches/hot fixes from Adobe?

[flexcoders] Re: is it possible to track visitors / the page an swf is embedded on

2009-02-18 Thread tom93438
 ...not the url of the document within which the app is embedded.
 For that, the only way is to use Javascript and ExternalInterface

If you're looking for the url in the browser address bar then look at
IBrowserManager:

http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/mx/managers/IBrowserManager.html

URL property is: 'The current URL as it appears in the browser address
bar.'

 Application.application.url will give you the url of the *swf file*,
not the url of the document within which the app is embedded. For
that, the only way is to use Javascript and ExternalInterface. I think
the syntax is:
 
 var docURL = ExternalInterface.call(location.href);
 
 or it might be document.location.href - not sure which one is right.

  Look into the BrowserManager, perhaps it will help.

  Lets say I run a video site like youtube, how can I capture the url 
 
 of
 
  the page where my swf object is embedded.
 
  
 
  For example someone takes the embed code from
 
  http://youtube. com/videoid123 http://youtube. com/videoid123  and
 
  places it onto the page at
 
  http://myblog. wordpress. com/this_ video_rocks
 
  http://myblog. wordpress. com/this_ video_rocks 
 
  
 
  I know how to use HTTPService to report this information back to my
 
  server and store it in the database, but I don't know how to use 
 
 Flex
 
  3 / Actionscript 3 to determine the URL of the page that embeds an
 
  swf. In the example above I would want to capture:
 
  
 
  http://myblog. wordpress. com/this_ video_rocks
 
  http://myblog. wordpress. com/this_ video_rocks 
 
  
 
  Thanks.
