ActionScript 1/2 :: Get And Set The Scroll Bars Position (pixel Position)
May 5, 2011
I have a ScrollPane and I want to get and set the scroll bars position (pixel position). For example, if the user changes the scroll bars position and then refreshes the page, we need to take the user at the same point where he was before refresh. For this I need to get the respective scroll bars positions before refresh and then set it to the saved position after load. I have got the positions by hPostion and vPosition but now when I try to save the values back to the same properties after refresh it doent work.
I wrote a short AS program to create a tileList and it functions fine, but I need to be able to scroll the list of pics according to the position of the mouse with out actually moving the scroll bar.... example of what I mean: the farther to the right mouseX is on stage, the faster my tileList scrolls to the right, if mouseX moves to the left of the stage, so does the scroll bar...Here`s my code so far:
import flash.display.Sprite;import fl.controls.TileList;import fl.controls.ScrollBarDirection;import flash.text.TextFormat; var tlc:TileList;[code]........
How can I find a pixel position, based in its color, within a bitmapdata?Say, we have a path drawed (a movieclip), we make it a bitmapdata.The path´s color is red.How can I find a given pixel red, within that bitmapdata?
I am trying to make a so called pixel effect in witch I want to make a shape only from pixels that are positioned in some random place on the stage. And all these pixels move to a certain point and create that shape. I've been looking into BitmapData Class but I don't now if that is the best way to do it.
URL...Whenever a chat is added, I want it to completely show the last message. I'm using maxVerticalScrollPosition to set the scroll position on the list, but it is always wrong (see the example). It undershoots it by a row or so. I've tried this with a regular container and it does the same thing. If I do maxVerticalScrollPosition+1, it sort of works, but if the last message is particularly long, it will be cut off (only show the top). How can I get it to scroll to the actual bottom of the container??[code]
I have a scrollpane with the source set to ImageMovieClip. ImageMocieClip is long in length with 50 images stacked vertically. Because of the size of the scrollpane only 15 are visible at a time.I have a button, navBtn, that I want to jump the scrollpane's scroll position to half way down. Is it possible? What scrollpane property do I need to use?
i made a full flash site and ill be adding new stuff, so my plan is to make a button that sends you to a determined position, for example a menu; when you click in "About" section the whole page scrolls along with the scroller (vertical) to where "About" section is, i dont know if i can give an instance name to a movieclip or any object so when clicking the button the stage scrolls where the object or movieclip is, is this posible ?
I ve got a series of frames, each with its own instance of a scrollPane called actionText. When navigating from frame to frame I want the vertical scroll position of actionText to reset to 0.For some reason these separate instances of the component are inheriting scroll positions from one another,for example,if I scroll to 50% in one frame, jump to a new frame with a new instance of actionText, that new instance starts at 50%, not 0.
I should be able to set the scroll position by actionText.vPostion = 0 but I get Position is an undefined property of the object actionText .Roll over either the star one or star twotabs and select any action item¯, scroll the text down (actually a pdf converted to swf), then navigate to another action item and the new scrollPane does not default to 0. Only stars one and two are coded.[url]......
I have a custom <mx:DataGrid /> that is updated with data from a ColdFusion server every 60 seconds. I've noticed that every time the DataGrid updates and redraws the scroll position is reset to the top.
Is there a way I can preserve the scroll position for my DataGrid?
I`ve been trying to make a scroll gallery depending on mouse movement, but I couldn't make it work.
Now, i found a script that works fine, but i have a problem at the beginning and at the end, because i can see a part of each image. If i put the mouse off stage, each one is shown enterily but when i tried to click them, i can see a small part of them.
I guess i should adjust the code, but i can't understand all the lines..
To make this more clear I have a flash website coming near to the end of the design stage. I have a multi-layered scene with a resolution of about 700x1200 (so you would scroll down the page with the browser scroll bar). Basicly I want these layers to correspond to your scrollbar position as though the perspective changes. ie: scrolling down would push the fore ground at the normal rate but only pushing the background at a slower rate, (thus giving a 3D effect).I would imagine since the .swf would then need to talk to the scroll bar, there would be a need for another language as well as action script.
I know this is a dumb question, but it would've taken me forever to search through all the rest of the posts regarding Scrolling Text boxes. So I have text scrolling in a dynamic text box. Buttons control it's movement, up and down with (scroll --) and (scroll ++). Let's say I read to the bottom of this text, and then load a new file into this same box. When I do this, the new text is scrolled to the bottom. My Question: How do I reset the scrolled position back to the top for each new file that I load??
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:
Code: // Add the symbols to stage var Menu_mc = new Menu_MC(); addChild(Menu_mc);
I have a text document which is several pages long and will use scrolling capabilities. This text document will be contained in an external swf. There will be 6 buttons on the main timeline which will all load the external swf with the text document but I would like the text to autoscroll to a specific postion/part of document that relates to that topic/button. Also, i would like the scrollbar to move in relation to position/part of document in case the user stays in the external swf and reads and scrolls through the document. Is this possible? I have searched for a tutorial on this but have found nothing. I have tried different things but nothing has worked.
I'm looking to a menu that scrolls vertically depending on the mouse position.I know that voetsjoeba has a cool scroller that does this, but loads XML and such. I'm just looking to scroll an MC up and down with easing depending on the mouse position.I like the way that the new XML thumbnail gallery that Kirupa put up scolls along the bottom, how about something like that?
I'm using the dynamic scroller found on the kiropa site found here [URL]..In the action script on the ScrollBar, I can't find what variable to change to reset the position of the bar to the top of the scroller when I use the same dynamic text area for other content. It loads just fine, but if the scroller was left at the bottom, it stays there on the new text until you move it a bit, then the text catches up.
I'm hoping to find the variable and reset it when the new text loads.
I have a scrollpane with a very long list of images stacked vertically. The user can scroll around, click on an image, and it will take them to another part of the application. There, there is a back button so they can return to the list of images. Instead of jumping back to the top, I want the back button to return them to where they were in the list of images beforehand. how do I log the value of the scroll position, and then set it to that value when the page is loaded again?
I am using a ScrollPane in my application(viz., instance name is: myScrollPane). When I view the contents of the ScrollPane, it shows them perfectly. My issue is: When I try to view data present inside the ScrollPane, if I move the Vertical-ScrollBar of the ScrollPane to middle(or somewhere from top to down) and then click on Submit button(viz., instance name is: submit_btn), then its Vertical ScrollPosition must be reset from middle(or any position where we leave it before) to top(or initial position). Hence, I need to move the Vertical ScrollPosition of ScrollPane to top (or) initial position. Everytime, I need to refresh the VerticalScrollBar Position when I click on the submit button. How to do it?
I have simple image gallery, where images are placed one next to another and the mask is revealing only one of them. Now I want to tween position of the images, but when I do that the mask is "traveling" alongside with the images..
So I'm trying my hands on some full browser flash and after reading a couple of tuts I wrote this
Code: #include "mc_tween2.as" Stage.scaleMode = "noScale"; stageListener = new Object();[code]...
The trace's are because it didn't work like I thought it would.Etc the middle movieclip didn't center itself but rather positioned itself seemingly how it pleased so I traced its x position and the var stageXcenter position and like suspected it shows different values.
scroll pane loads scroll bars for the movie clip as soon as it loads the movie clip, so there is no scroll bars the movies height and width are one, but after its loaded it changes its size to bigger than the scroll pane, but the scroll bars dont show up because of the size of the movie clip when it was first loaded, can anyone help?
I am building a photo gallery and I am loading the thumbnails from an XML file into a scroll pane dynamically. As the scroll pane fills up, it gets wider to accomodate the thumbnailsThere is one row, and eventually, I want to have the user be able to mouse left or right and have the scroll pane scroll, versus clicking on the bar or the left/right arrows. However, in order to accomplish this, I need the scroll bars to disappear!
I'm loading some product names into a textfield and I got few buttons with some of those product names on it.When a product button is clicked, how do I make the textfield scroll automatically and to display that particular item in a specified Y position?
