ActionScript 2.0 :: F8 - Formatting Number To Money?
What is an easy way to format a number to money? I want to add commas for every thousand, and force the decimal to 2 digits.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Hexadecimal Number Formatting?
I want to use a TextFormat object as an argument to a function that uses its properties to generate a css style object to use to style some text. My reason for doing this is that I also use the TextFormat object directly to format som other non-html formatted text.
This all works fine except for the color property.a TextFormat object takes a color reference in the format 0xFF0000a style object takes the color ref in the format "#FF0000" I need to read the color property of the TextFormat object and reformat it to the hash prefix form that the stylesheet understands. I can't seem to get this to work though.
First off, if I try to access the textformat color property flash seems to convert it to a decimal number somehow, which does not seem terriby helpful. Secondly, even if I use bitwise operations to turn the number into r.g.b. values, I don't know how I can then turn those into a hash prefixed string of the hexadecimal value.I'm working in Flash 8 pro, AS 2.0 (using SE|PY), on windows XP

ActionScript 3.0 :: Health & Money Variable In Game
I'm working on a game where I need to have a variable for money and a variable for Health, or in my case, I call it Energy. Most tutorials I'm finding are in AS2 and the AS3 ones are not this basic thing that I need. Basically, I have an item shop with a pizza button, and in their respective dynamic text fields, you can see the status of your Energy and your Money. So, let's say the person clicks the pizza to buy it, Flash will subtract 10 (for 10 bucks) from the person's total money value and add 15 for total Energy points.This is what I've written so far and I'm writing all the script in Flash, not outside using classes or packages. I can tell already that I'm missing something. How do I write it so that Flash knows to add 15 Energy from that Pizza button and can I update the values of the variables and kick off that mouse event in the same function?[code]

ActionScript 3.0 :: Paypal To Take Money Within The Same SWF And Just Allow Further Functions To Run On Confirmation?
I am currently writing a Flash AS3 website where users upload file(s), I take payment, and when payment has been received, the files are emailed to me to be processed, all within the same SWF.
I can get the upload and email part all working nicely. My question is about the payment part. Ideally, I would like to use Paypal but the critical point is that payment and then confirmation must all be within the same SWF. If Paypal directs to another page and returns to a different URL (or the same one for that matter), the SWF would have ended which would be a problem for the emailing part.
Is there a solution for Paypal to take money within the same SWF and just allow further functions to run on confirmation?

ActionScript 1/2 :: Update "money" Variable With A Function?
I am creating a roullete wheel type game. I am having a problem updating a total when I call a function to add the variables. I have a variable "myMoney" that is initialized at 50. After I spin the wheel, I want to add the bets to the current value of "myMoney." I have another variable, "slot1Bet" that is initialized at 0. I am trying to call the function updateMoney(myMoney) which than should take the current value of "myMoney" and set it equal to itself plus the slot1Bet. The trace statement for "money equals...." returns 500 and so does the updateMoney function.m so the correct value is returned based on the slot bet.
_global.myMoney = 50;
_global.slot1Bet = 0;
trace("updated money equals " + updateMoney(myMoney));

ActionScript 2.0 :: "Number Of A String VS Number Of A Number" AKA Conversion
Inside my code i have some variables declared as Numbers, and i get some others from an external source; these variables can either be Numbers or String representation of Numbers. Now, i have to implement some equality controls on these variables, and since i don't know in that moment which type are them of, i'm converting all of them to Numbers (i don't need and neither want to compare strings) via the Number() function which accepts either Numbers or Strings as an input. These controls can compare 2 single variables or a variable and a sum (or subtraction) of other variables, for example:
