ActionScript 2.0 :: Text Input Restrict Words

Jan 4, 2010

I'm making a project in which I have a input/output text box. I'm trying to restrict the words that are able to be said in the input box, but I can't seem to figure out how I'd do that. I'd think that I'd use .replace, and possibly an if function which tells it that if a word used does not equal the allowed words, to replace it with something such as ###.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Restrict Input Text Via Width Of Textbox?

Feb 10, 2011

I'd like to restrict the amount a user can type into a textbox based on the width of an existing textbox on the stage. I played around with the max chars but when you type something like a 'W' it is considerably wider than something like a 'i' (current font is 19px vs 4px wide). I was playing around with .textWidth, but wasn't sure how to use that value to restrict the textbox.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Get Input Text To Search A List Of Words?

May 1, 2011

I'm planning to make a game that gives players the choice to search a word when selecting a character, and if that word is found, they get to play as them. I don't even have a clue what, where and how I am gonna put the list in the game for something to search it. I'll try to give an example:

A user puts "horse" into the input field, presses the "Search" button, and Flash searches the word "horse" in a list of maybe 30 or so words. If it returns no results, a message says, "keyword not found". If it is found, a picture of a horse comes up in the character preview box.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Isolate Words Entered By User Into 'Input Text'

Nov 22, 2009

I'm trying to isolate words entered by the user into an "Input Text" (command). In a function that executes every time a key is pressed, I set a string, "newTxt", to the text entered.[code]This works fine; I'm able to check the string "newTxt". However, this checks the entire command rather than one word. When I replace line 2 with:[code]it freezes. In theory, it should add every letter until it reaches a space or ends, right? Could anyone find my mistake? Also, how would I go about checking for the second word (after a space)?

Actionscript 3 :: Restrict Input To A Specified Language?

Sep 26, 2011

I use a TextInput component of Flex 4.5 to enter some text in English. I use the restrict attribute to ... restrict the keyboard input to characters a-zA-Z only. The problem is that if i copy/paste a word in another language, i can then paste it into the TextInput component. Is there a way to avoid that? If no, how can i validate the input against a specified language?I found out that the unicode set of Chinese+ language symbols is u4E00 to u9FFF. So i write the following:

var chRE:RegExp = new RegExp("[u4E00-u9FFF]", "g");
if (inputTI.text.match(chRE)) {
trace("chinese");[code].........

ActionScript 2.0 :: Tracking Words In Input TextBox

Sep 10, 2011

I have an input box and I want it to track if anywhere in the text box a certain word is typed then something happens. Here is what I got so far.
Code:
wordTracker = new Object();
wordTracker = function () {
if(txt_input.split == "word"){
trace("success");

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:
