ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 - Input Text Box Not Reading Numbers?

Dec 16, 2009

I have an input text box and I want the user to be able to enter a number in the text box and hit a button and it will jump to that frame of a movie clip. For some reason I can't get the input text to read the input as a number. I have tried using parseInt or Number, but it gives me this output instead. "<TEXTFORMAT LEADING="2"><P ALIGN="CENTER"><FONT FACE="Myriad Pro Light SemiCond" SIZE="13" COLOR="#000000" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">2</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>" when I just want it to say "2".

Here is the code I have linked to the button:

btn_newPage.onRelease = function (){


On the trace of pageString I get the text i put in above and then pageNum comes back as NaN.btn_newPage is the button they would click after they have input a page number in the input text box. pageString is the name of my input text box variable and I was trying to use pageNum to change it to a number. And doc_content is the movie clip I am trying to control.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Auto Format Input Text (Dates And Numbers)?

Aug 26, 2006

I have some input text fields (by the text tool, not the component) in my form that I was wondering if they could be auto-formatted. I was looking specifically for dates & numbers. For example when the user inputs 082606 and then tabs away it would immediately update to 08/26/06, or when the user inputs 50000 it would immediately update to 50,000.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Reading Numbers From XML Document

Nov 12, 2011

I am having trouble using numeric data from my xml document. I can read the fields in to strings to trace or send to a textField, but my goal is to use data from my xml to drive graphs. I'd like to use the data to assign position to graphic elements, so somehow read in as, or assigned to a variable as an Int or a Number?

So far I have not been successful referencing the P or I elements as numbers from xml
that looks like this:
<Name>New York</Name>
[Code] .....

This doesn't work but my idea is either to assign the xml address to a local variable and then drive the graphic with it or just have the graphics position reference the xml address.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Default Dynamic Text Auto-scale Font, Input From Input Text First

Feb 3, 2011

I have an issue with font scaling of a dynamic text box.

Currently i have one input box named input_1 with a variable attached to it named "choc_1".

Also, i have a dynamic text box named dynamic_1 with variable "choc_1".

When the user types something on the input box then the dynamic box changes instantly and displays what the user has written.

auto scale-size the fonts to a smaller size if the user types many letters.

The input_1 box has a 13 character limit. My initial font size is 200, i want to scale down so when the user types 10 letters they fit the box and they don't go out of screen. I want to use one line, so wrap or multiline is not possible.

here's a code that i'm trying to fix but i can't get the dynamic box to change:

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Midi Piano Game - Reading Input From Attached Keyboard?

Mar 22, 2008

I'm starting work on a midi piano game in flash. I have my midi keyboard hooked in through the USB. Now I've been told that there is some way to get flash to read any kind of input but I am not sure on how. Basically all that will happen is that u hit a key on the piano and a box shows up of random color. Longer u hold a key bigger it gets. Each key will have different box assigned to it. I think I could handle everything but I'm stuck on the first step and that is getting flash to read the Piano key presses.

Dynamic Input Box - Adding Two Numbers

Feb 24, 2011

I using Flash CS5 for the first time, and I'm hitting a snag. I have an input box on Scene 1 for age (variable called old). On scene 3, I have a dynamic test box (variable called display), where I want to display the age (old) + 10.

My Code looks like this:
PHP Code:
var Real_age = Number(old) + 10;
display = Real_age;
It's returning NaN.

A trace of the output of Real_age gives:
PHP Code:
<FONT FACE="Times New Roman" SIZE="12" COLOR="#009900" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">2</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>

The code works OK in Flash 8, but I figure I must have some some setting that is spitting out the unwanted HTML.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Numbers From Input Boxes?

Jan 28, 2011

I'm stumped on this problem and can't seem to figure it out. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Basically I'm building a large calculator that adds over 100 input boxes. I've got it working except for the fact that if a user misses inputing a number into one of the input boxes it does not work anymore. I've tired lots of things to no avail. I just want to add the input boxes and skip those where the user did not enter any information (does not apply to them)

Here is my code.

on (press){
ReceptionTotal = Number(LocationFee) + Number(Caterer) + Number(ToastingGlasses) + Number(SecurityFee) + Number(BarPackage) + Number(WeddingCake) + Number(FoodHors) + Number(Baker) + Number(BartentingFee) + Number(CakeKnife) + Number(Servers) + Number(Flatware) + Number(Dinnerwear) + Number(Flatware) + Number(TableLinens) + Number(ChairsCovers) + Number(Glasswear) + Number(Tent) + Number(Napkins) + Number(Childcare) + Number(DanceFloor) + Number(ServingStaff) + Number(Lanterns) + Number(Heaters) + Number(Restrooms);

each input box has a variable name assigned to it as indicated above. I've tired setting the variables to 0, tried if statements don't know how to skip one of the above variables when no number is entered.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Input Text Box To Dynamic Text Output - No Cursor, Can't Input?

Apr 28, 2011

the last of many problems, is that at the very end of the test, you're shown your score, and you have the option to type your name in a text box and click "save". Doing so will apply you score data (time elapsed, date, correct answers and percentage) along with the name you typed in, and output in a form, that you can save or print off, or whatever. The problem is, the input text box will not let you type in it. If you mouse over it, the mouse stays a pointer, you don't get the text tool. If you click on it, the cursor appears for a split second after you release the mouse button, but you cannot type anything in it.This is the actionscript for the output form:

function saveRecord(record:String, field:String, now:Object, score:Object):Void {

ActionScript 3.0 :: Capturing User Input Restricted To Just Numbers?

Nov 14, 2008

I've written a function that restricts user input to just numbers (0-9,.) and stores the input in the associative array, userInput[]. It works but seems inefficient looping through the entire input text string to scrub out invalid characters. Anyone have suggestions for a more efficient approach? Note that a working solution must correctly process mouse or cursor key movements/edits within the input box.

Also, you can see I'm using the KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP event to trigger the processing. The docs seem to indicate TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT is really the proper event for this purpose. I started with TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT but found the event is triggered before the last key pressed is actually added to the instance. The result is that the function was always one characterbehind. Is there an easy way to get the current text in the input box, including the last key pressed, when processing TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT?

Also, what behavior do any PC users have? I'm expecting the latter since they're generally intel chipsets too?Note: once i compile the code on my PPC mac, intel macs that run the SWF (but don't recompile the FLA) do return the correct booleans that match the PPC output.

I have the code to do it and it seems as though it should work but, for some reason, when I move focus from one field to the next the data in the previous field is re-arranged so that the last character input becomes the first (610 becomes 061 - for example).Here is my code:
