ActionScript 2.0 :: Enter Special Characters In The Text Input Field?

Jul 12, 2010

I have taken over an old project of a registration page after a short quiz and for some reason it is not possible to enter special characters in the text input field. example: @ but it is also not possible to enter a y or a capital W and some others. I have not found any thread or google infos on this problem and am short of reprogramming the whole thing in as3 which is very tedious because the whole site is still running as2 and we do not have time nor money to update.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Restricting/Allowing Navigation Between Pages?

May 29, 2007

Here's the thing. I'm implementing a navigation system into a project, that requires you to click a button, so that you may advance to other goes like this: it is a slide-based navigation system, with 4 buttons. To advance to page 2, on page one you must click a button, and so on. Otherwise, no matter how much you click the button linked to page 2, it will never work. And the cycle continues. I guess it's not all that easy to i've attached a link to the .fla [the file does not have any navigation restrictions

Special Characters In Dynamic Text?

Oct 23, 2003

i'm loading a dynamic text, but some spanish characters like " and " (i hope you see the characters in "") do not appear. Por example, the word "drsticas" which has the special character over the "a" appears "dricas", that is, it skips the letter with the special character and the 2 following letters.Anyway, i've tried using the embed option for dynamic texts, but may be i'm using it wrong.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Restricting Carriage Return In Text Input Fields?

If it's possible to restrict hard returns in text input fields? I've tried something like this:
my_txt.restrict="^u0013", and a bunch of variations thereof, but nothing seems to keep the Enter key from doing it's thing. Second best would be to traverse through a string a user has entered and replace hard returns with a space or dash, but again I've had no luck looking for

Flash :: Special Characters In Vertical Text?

Jul 18, 2011

I have a flash-application (done with CS4) in which a particular Textbox, which is vertical fails to display characters with a hacek (ˇ) on top. If such a character appears with in a string that is to be shown, it is simply dropped, leaving the string crippled.

This baffles me since characters with hacek work on other (horizontal) textfields in the same .swf with the same Font (Arial) work just fine. I also tried manually telling flash to embed these characters for this textfield, but to no avail. Even entering characters with hacek in the flash IDE works without problems.

I am not very familiar with flash, this application has been developed by a co-worker who is no longer employed here.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Show Special Characters In Dynamic Text Field?

Dec 25, 2009

I want to show special characters in flash

I have taken a dynamic text field with HTML property = true;

Some of the characters are working fine. But some of the special characters are not. For example the angle symbol "∠" is not working.

I found out the Decimal code for angle symbol (∠) and used it. It is working fine if I don't embed the font but when we embed the font (even with all the characters that flash support), it is not working.

I am using the following code

abc_txt.htmlText="∠ abc"

Data Integration :: Dynamic Text, System Fonts, And Special Characters?

May 5, 2006

I've got a dynamic text area pulling text from a MySQL database via AMFPHP.The text includes special characters such as accents,umlauts, etc (multi-language site platform). Most of them work fine, and ALL of them work fine when I'm on a Mac client. However, if I use a Windows client machine in either Firefox or IE6, there are a couple characters that for whatever reason just don't seem to show up-instead I get the [] box character.

The only characters I've found that seem to be affected like this are European quote characters like ' " and " (hex characters 146, 147, 148). I'm using the familiar ampersand-pound-number-semicolon escape sequence for them. And like I said, they all display fine on Mac/Firefox and Mac/Safari. Why are all my other special characters (umlauts, accents, etc) working fine and just these things failing? It's also worth noting that they look fine if I dump them out to a PHP file and pull it up in a browser...

ActionScript 3.0 :: Each Field In The Form Only Allows 3 Characters And No Special Characters

Aug 23, 2010

1) Each field in the form only allows 3 characters and no special characters such as @ _ ! . , etc... 2) When the user goes to the next field in the form, the previous field appears blank but the when clicking on that again, the original text appears. 3) When submitting the form, it just keeps saying "in progress" and never shows the confirmation text nor does the email get sent. There is an HTML file included with this form but I am not sure if I need to put that in as I have embedded this form into an SWF file so I don't think I need that code but let me know if I am wrong about this. I am posting both the AS code and PHP code below..

I already know how to limit my input text to a number of characters, but how would I go about (if possible) making sure characters do not repeat? In other words, I have a ten character input text box and I want you to be able to type pretty much any character but only one of each.



What I'm trying to eliminate is this:


If that isn't possible, I'd like to instead detect if there are repeated characters so I can just say "that's invalid".

Professional :: Store A String Of Characters From An Input Text Box?

Jul 26, 2010

I basically need to store a string of characters from an input text box and have them displayed at the last frame of the quiz. I declared the variable holding the input text as _global.player in the first frame, and upon clicking the start button the code is:

on (release) { _global.player=player.text; gotoAndStop (2); }

These variables are not referenced again until the last frame of the quiz, which reads thus:

stop();playerdisplay.text=_global.player;score.text=_global.correct;'Endng Comments Generator'if (_global.correct<=3) { phrase="Try a little harder next time";}if (_global.correct>3 + _global.correct<7) { }comment.text=phrase;

Yes, I know the global.correct coments are not yet complete, but i dont think that should be causing any issue with the playerdisplay.text (the dynamic text box to display the player name). If anyone could give me a hand that would be great. Nothing appears in the dynamic text box when the final frame of the movie loads.
