ActionScript 1/2 :: Set A Word Wrap In The TextInput Component?

Jan 10, 2007

I'm using the TextInput component, but it doesn't seem toallow for a word wrap - when you type your letters just keep goingoff to the right and what you typed on the left isn't visible. Ifigure there's gotta be a way, but I looked around in thefiles and couldn't find it? Does anyone know how to do this?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic TextField With Multiline Without Word Wrap

Jan 19, 2009

Is there a way to show a long text in a dynamic text field with multiline attribute = on, without word wrapping? E.g., A dynamic text field contains 2 lines, and multiline is set to on. If I try to display a text in the text field, it is wrapping at the word, thereby losing some space in the text field (see code below):

my_fmt.size = 50;
this.createTextField("my_txt", 1, 100, 100, 280, 150);
my_txt.multiline = true;
my_txt.wordWrap = true;
my_txt.border = true;
my_txt.text = "One Hundredyears of solitude";
my_txt.setTextFormat(my_fmt);

The display is showing only "One Hundredyear" in two lines, and the rest of characters are below the visible text area. The issue here is in the first line there is only "One" displayed, leaving a lot of space. If I can accommodate more characters in the first line, without word wrapping, the second line can accommodate the rest of the characters.

Flash :: TextInput Component Not Giving Up Focus?

Jan 31, 2010

I have a project where a big part of the UI a notebook, where the user enters text in a number of fields, for which it uses a series of TextInput components.Once the notebook is filled in the user switches to a screen where the inputs are disabled and they compare what they wrote to a 'model answer'.The problem is that the last TextInput to have focus at the time of disabling retains it - it appears disabled (greyed out etc) but if you type the letters appear in the field.I have tried variations on Selection.setFocus(null), and it seems that Selection.getFocus() returns null/undefined, but can still type into it. I can't select any of the other textfields, and clicking on other interactive elements - bottons etc doesn't seem to want to remove focus either.

UPDATE - Just to make sure there wasn't something crazy happening particular to this project, if I make a nude flash movie with a textInput and a button, then make the button set theTextInput.enabled = false, I can still type into the field. I can't see any way that's a feature.

Flex :: Custom TextInput Component Loses Focus But Still Contains Cursor?

Oct 29, 2011

I have a custom TextInput that listens for the FocusEvent.FOCUS_IN and FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT events:

textDisplay.addEventListener(FocusEvent.FOCUS_IN, onFocusInHandler);
textDisplay.addEventListener(FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT, onFocusOutHandler);

My onFocusInHandler function basically removes a "promptview" that tells the user to type in a value, with the onFocusOutHandler doing the opposite.

For example, if the TextInput text was backspaced to a blank value and the user clicks out of the TextInput box, it would show a "Please enter a value" light-gray prompt in the TextInput.

This works fine until the user clicks our custom "Clear" button. The clear button sets the text to "", and I can tell the FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT is received because the prompt text is set to visible (its not being set anywhere else). The problem is, the cursor remains in the box as if it still has focus, so if the user immediately starts typing, both the prompt text "Please enter a value" and the user-entered text appears over the gray text, which looks pretty ugly and unreadable.

Why does the TextInput receive the FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT event if it's not actually losing focus?

Actionscript 3 :: Flex Spark Textinput Prevents Component To Be Collected By GC

Mar 28, 2012

I've got a custom component (quite complex so I can't post any code here, although that shouldn't matter), that I can add to a view. When the component is deleted from the view or the view is switched I call my own dispose method which removes remaining eventListeners and kills some references so that the component can eventually be nulled and collected by the GC.

All that works perfectly fine until I add a Spark TextInput to the MXML part of the component (it took me hours to find out what is preventing the component to be collected!), so I recon that the TextInput somehow automatically adds some eventListeners.

My question is what are these listeners, or is there anything else I haven't thought of?

ActionScript 3.0 :: TextInput Component Value Passed To Dynamic Text Field - Part 02

For instance my name is Shawn, if I enter "Shawn" into the Text Input the Dynamic Text Boxes will display "Shaw". It will only enter the "n" if I type another character then backspace it, deleting the extra character.

Adobe Flex 4 Rendering Issues With Text In Disabled TextInput Component?

Some users are reporting rendering issues with this. The TextInput's text value does not appear inside the box but is misaligned and is outside of the component. You can see the screenshow below of the disabled ID column where the numbers which are supposed to be in the TextInput box are far off to the right.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Selecting One Letter From A Word Array (to Start Off A Word Game)?

I am now trying to enhance some of the features.I would like to see if I can display one letter of each word so the Player has a hint. Think of this as a beginners level.The words are random from a text list. Either I can make the letters invisible and the game starts without a hint or I am able to select a letter using charAt() or creating a new variable substring()from the word which is the displayed repeatedly on the stage(not what I want) I have not been able to find a way to display one letter and display it in the correct order within the word and keep the remaining letters invisible.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Drag-the-word Quiz - Make The Word Fit Into The White Box?

Apr 1, 2003

I am doing drag-the-word quiz. When you match the word with correct part, the message pop out, saying Bingo! If the word is matched with wrong part, the "Sorry. Try Again" message pops out, says "Sorry. Try Again". I managed to make the "Sorry. Try Again" message disappear. However it dun work anymore after that. Sometimes it is quite funny. When I play it, the "Sorry. Try Again" message dun pop out at all.

Another problem - I am not sure how to make the word fit into the white box. I only know how to make the word drop on the white box. Can you tell me how to do it? I will be adding voiceovers to the quiz when the word is matched with the part. For e.g it will say "bingo" or "Sorry. Try Again". How to attach the voiceovers to it?
