Flash :: Update Mouse Position Durng FLVPlayback?

Nov 4, 2011

How would you randomly move the mouse 1px while my FLVPlayback is running and stop moving the mouse when the movie ends?I was thinking of using an eventListener that while playing the flv runs a funtion that updates the mouse x and y randomly. But when the move Completes it removes the moveNouse listener.

my_flv.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, removeMouseMove);
my_flv.addEventListener(Event.PLAYHEADUPDATE, moveMouse);

Actionscript 3 :: Keyframe In Flash Fail To Update An Object's Position?

Apr 3, 2012

I have a background MovieClip in a custom button class, which moves the play head to a different frame (via gotoAndStop("framename")) depending on which mouse events it receives.
When the mouse up event is received, it sends the play head back to the "release" frame, where the background should shift back to its original location, but instead nothing happens and the background remains where it was.It's as though Flash is not honoring the background's position defined by the key frame it enters.

The only workaround is to add a frame script to each frame which manually sets the x and y position to what it should be, but this defeats the purpose of using keyframes for the position.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Fluid Layout Stop Changing Resize Position When Movieclip Is At Certain Position?

Nov 19, 2009

I added a Menu_mc on my stage. Initially, this should be at the center of the stage and when I click on it, it will tween on the upper left corner of the browser. However, when I resize the browser, the Menu_mc goes back to the center of the screen.

I have tried separating a different actionscript file where it is specifically for initialization of the object and another one for resizing. And then when I call it on my main AS file it goes like this:

// Add the symbols to stage
var Menu_mc = new Menu_MC();


But it seems futile.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Movieclip To Move To The Position Of Each Of Buttons From Any Position?

May 13, 2010

I'm hoping someone can solve this headache. Basically, I want a movieclip to move to the position of each of my buttons from any position along my x axis. Therefore, the movieclip needs to 'flip' to face the way it is traveling.At the moment I have the movieclip moving to the mouse x axis when I ROLLOVER the button and stop following the mouse when I ROLLOUT but the code won't flip the movieclip so I must have something wrong...

btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER,followCa t);
btn02.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER,follow Cat);
btn02.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT,stopCat );

ActionScript 3.0 :: Setting A Position Of Movieclip Called Red X And Y Position?

Jul 3, 2009

setting a position of movieclip called red x and y position within a movieclip called background

background.redsquare.x = 300;
background.redsquare.y = 300;

comes up with TypeError: Error #1010: A term is undefined and has no properties.

setting a position of movieclip called red x and y position withen a movieclip called background

redsquare.x = 300;
redsquare.y = 300;

This works fine but how can that be when surely you must access the red withen the background rather then just accessing red?

IDE :: Way To Get 'MovieClip' To Move From Position A In Keyframe 1 To Position B

Feb 3, 2010

What i'd like to do is have a menu/site map that adjusts when you click on a certain icon. For example, I have a AS3.0 flash file with, say, 5 keyframes with 5 buttons that are in different positions on each key frame. The buttons are set to gotoAndPlay the various keyframes. I can set up a tween that links frame 1 to 2, 2 to 3 etc. but what I would like is a tween from, say, 1 to 3, then 3 to 5, then 5 to 1 - basically in a random order rather than sequentially through the key frames. I could set each of these tweens up individually but the site is for a portfolio that I would like to keep adding to and to do this individually would mean an ever increasing amount of tweens.Basically, is there a way to get a 'MovieClip' to move from Position A in keyframe 1 to Position B in another keyframe without a set of tween frames? I'm sure this is simpler than I am making it sound but I don't seem to be able to work it out.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Clip Update Position Of Other Clip Required?

Feb 6, 2009

Been working on this for almost 2 weeks and I am completely stuck. I've got a main dynamic movie clip that pulls in images from an xml file. It's x position moves depending on the mouse position. Obviously its width is dependent on how many images are pulled in.

I have an indicator movie clip that runs along a 600 pixel line in the opposite direction to the main clip that gives an indication of how long the main clip is.

I know the length of the indicator's line so its x position needs to be updated in relation to the x position of the main clip. 1% of indicator's maximum movement in 6 pixels so it needs to move 6 pixels in relation to 1% of main movie clips maximum distance.

Update Text In A MovieClip

Jul 1, 2009

I am trying to create a text box which I can dynamically update from an XML file and move around in 3D at the same time. Is it possible?

I can create a dynamic text field and update if from an XML file and.I can create a dynamic text field, convert it into a Movie clip allowing me to move it round the screen but I can't do both without losing the text (I have also tried embedding the font).

Is it fundamentally possible in CS4 or CS3 to dynamically update a text field once it has been converted to a MovieClip/Symbol?

Actionscript 3 :: Move Movieclip Position Opposite Of Mouse Coords On Other Movieclip

Jan 26, 2011

Okay I have a script in which I have added an image to the stage. It is absolute centered. I then have another with is on top but much bigger. I would like the big image to move opposite of my mouse position on the smaller image. ie: cursor is on bottom left corner the bottom left corner of the larger image is in the same spot. And the same thing for any other area.

I have tried many different ways but to no avail. I have done research but no one has been able to give me a solid answer. Anyone know of a way to accomplish this. Keep in mind this it needs to work regardless of the image size.

Output is:
[object MovieClip],[object MovieClip]

Flash :: Professional - Update Via SCUP - The Client Is Not Supposed To Be Interfered With The Update Progress

Nov 17, 2011

I am deploying Updates via SCUP and SCCM to hundreds of Computers. Fortunately Adobe provides an SCCM Update Catalog for both Adobe Flash ActiveX and Adobe Flash Plugin. But now my Problem: After publishing the Update via SCCM, the client is not supposed to be interfered with the Update Progress (which is working) I figured the Updater works like this: First SCCM checks if a Update needs to be deployed, if this is the case, The Flash Updater begins. First the old Flash Version is beeing uninstalled. But now: if the Client has a Browser Window (IE, or Firefox) open, the Updater is not able to install the new Flash Version and quits with an Error. This leaves the Client PC without any Flash (because its being uninstalled before) How can I prevent Flash being uninstalled due to the Update progress not working while a Browser window is open?

ActionScript 3.0 :: MovieClip Reference Nightmare - Update The New Widths Into An Array

mcholder.image_mc.nmc3 .......

I have a function that resizes the images when the stage is resized. This then runs another function to update an array of the image widths. The problem I have is trying to update the new widths into an Array. I just can't seen to reference my MC's to get the widths!

ActionScript 1/2 :: Flash Game - Putting Each Armor And Update On A Different Frame Inside The Player Movieclip?

Jan 29, 2011

I am trying to create my first semi-serious flash game. The problem I am having is I want to be able to click a button in the players inventory to equip a different armor to the player, and have that armor work in the game on the same movieclip(Player) without having to re-make all the attacks and moves etc. for each change on another movieclip. My ideas are extremely novice like putting each armor and update on a different frame inside the Player movieclip and then doing a gotoAndStop to the frame. Though that may work I don't know how to goto a frame inside a movieclip. I would like to control this using as much code as possible.I would paste my code but I don't have any code for this part of the game so far. I have tried some simple coding but so far I cannot get the pieces together.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 : Change The Movieclip Position?

Mar 16, 2009

I've made an image slider in flash and need it to slide out at it's current position before changing scenes.

The code i'm using is -

onClipEvent(load) {
_root.newXpos = 0000
speed = 10


I need the '_root.newXpos = 0000' to tell the movieclip to stay in the X position it is currently in (it will be different each time as the user can move the movieclip via buttons, so a simple Xpos = 0000 won't do)Alternatively, I've tried adding -

on (press) { _root.newYpos = 476.2;
if (_root.Ypos =476.2);
gotoAndPlay ("Pxcotos", 1);

on a button but the scene changes before the movieclip has a chance to slide out.
