ActionScript 2.0 :: Accessing Grid Spaces In A Grid?

Jun 24, 2008

I'm building a small editor that allows users to place electrical components onto a grid so that they can see how electricity works. I have built a grid using an array and for loops and attach movieclips dynamically to that grid. What I want the moviclips to do is to look in the four spaces either side of itself i.e. up, down,left and right.I have managed to pull the grid coordinates out of the grid which enables me to tell the clip which grid space to look at but have been unable to successfully get the code to work.Here is my code:

myGrid = [[1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1],

Flash :: Flex Data Grid: Check Whether Item Renderer Displays Last Row In Grid

Feb 3, 2012

I'm currently working with the OLAPDataGrid component and got stuck at a relatively simple task: I want to style the last row of the grid differently from the rest, so my cell item renderer needs to know whether he's rendering the last row with content in the overall grid, including those rows currently not rendered because they are outside the visible grid space. AdvancedGridListData's rowIndex property only gets me the row index of the renderer relative to the range of visible grid rows, i.e. when I scroll down the grid, a data item with an index greater than 0 gets the rpw index = 0.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dragged Object Should Snap To The Grid If The Distance Between The Object Bounds And A Grid Line Is Less Than 5px

Jan 16, 2012

I'm trying to code the snap to grid functionality. The dragged object should snap to the grid if the distance between the object bounds and a grid line is less than 5px. I found a way to do it if the object's rotation is 0 but it doesn't work if I rotate the object. I need a different approach. Can you point me into the right direction with the algorythm or any source code?

The whole website made in flash - dynamically assigned number of videos per row/column and page, depending on the user's screen resolution. Website made in php/html with help of JS and CSS - videos are displayed by YouTube player or other player e.g. JW Player - videos position depends on screen resolution.

ActionScript 2.0 :: XML Thumbnail Grid?

Feb 4, 2010

i have a grid of thumbnails (i loop through an xml file to create and display) this is working perfectly.I can trace out click commands on the MCs and load in an image just as you'd want to.I load the image into a thumbMC i created with some additional symbols in...Then i started thinking, it would be nice to have some kind of preloader for each image/thumbnail.I've implemented a MovieClipLoader and this is quite happily loading in the images and reporting when the load is complete, however i am completely unable to target my preloader symbols within this function, so am unable to either control the width of a loadbar, and also show/hide a loadLoop while the image loads.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Best Way To Store Grid?

Jan 6, 2011

Right now I have need of several 56x5 grids of very simple information (0-9) in each slot-- I am just wondering what the most space-saving/easiest way of doing this is?

I could very easily make arrays for each grid, but it would take a lot of space. In the past when I had a similar problem and a lot of time on my hands I created (by hand) png files where each pixel had a separate color based on the information in that spot. I think this is a very good space saver but is very time consuming to create..

Is there a better option? Or is there an easy way to create the png files without wasting so much time painting them by hand?

Coloring A Grid Layout?

Apr 13, 2009

I want to make an area where I can make a grid of varying colors, starting with a small 3x3 grid. The final goal is to reduce the size of each element and increase the number of squares to get a higher resolution. The shades of color are stored in an array and I can get the drawing going, but the shapes don't get deleted when repeating the function call and they go on top of everything else I've put on the stage.

Here is part of the code I'm using:

Code: Select allfunction grids():void {
for(var i:Number = 0; i<3; i++) {
for(var j:Number = 1; j<3; j++) {
var child:Shape = new Shape();


where w is the width, h is the height, and myArray has the shading I need.

How can I get rid of the rectangles afterwards and start clean? Better yet, is there a more efficient way to make and color a grid on the stage?

Transitioning One Image To Another Using A Grid Of Squares?

I'm trying to do a transition that you've probably seen many times. Transitioning one image to another using a grid of squares where each square fades at a slightly different time.I've made a complex movie clip made up of several other movie clips with all the squares fading at the rate I'm looking at. When I just play the color squares it works fine, but the minute I turn that master movie clip into a mask for the image I loose the transition/fade completely--just an on off thing.
