ActionScript 2.0 :: Change Site Style Based On Users System Time?

Aug 31, 2006

how one might change a site element based on the users computer time? What we are trying to do is change the color of the sky and shade of the buildings in a cityscape scene on a cartoonish style site. If it is 9:00 PM on the site visitor's end, they will see a nighttime colored scene. If it's 7:00 AM, it would be sunrise-ish.

ActionScript 3.0 :: CMS System That Allows Users To Change The Textual Content?

Apr 8, 2011

I've developed a CMS system that allows users to change the textual content and save the changes back to an XML doc.All works fine in English but the writing to the XML Keeps falling over when it reaches a foreign character.. Even when wrapped with the CDDATA tag.The application needs to support users translating the content into different languages.

I'm using zinc to write out the XML string.During runtime all changes are stored back directly to the XML object ( the same one that is loaded at the start and is used to populated the CMS) then I use XML.toString() to create a string variable to pass to zinc to save out the file..

ActionScript 2.0 :: Condition Based On System Time?

Oct 4, 2007

I am playing around with the timedate.getHours(); function and I was wondering how I might go about setting up a condition whereby between 3am and 3pm, movieclip1 loads and between 3pm and 3am, movieclip2 loads?

I'm sure it's not that difficult but I'm not sure how to structure the if/else statement or read the hour from the timedate function.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Change Order System To Cart Based

Dec 3, 2009

I currently have a system that takes the users order and then sends the data to a php file where the details are then emailed to the shop admin. I accomplish this by using...

ActionScript Code:
//Retreive and pass the information to a PHP page
var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
var request:URLRequest=new URLRequest("sendmail.php");
[Code] .....

However I need to change this system so that rather than each order being sent automatically, the details are stored in an array so that a cart system can be produced somehow! It doesn't need to be overly secure, the system simply needs to email colour details etc to the admin.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Time That Is Not Affected By System Clock Change On Mac

Feb 7, 2012

I want to calculate the number of ms elapsed between 2 time points for measuring reaction time. The system clock change (e.g. from auto sync) messed up the calculation.The function flash.utils.getTimer is supposed to return the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the Flash runtime virtual machine for ActionScript 3.0 (AVM2) started. This number of milliseconds is not affected by system clock change on Windows, but this is not true on Mac. The Date class is affected by system clock change on Windows or Mac.Is there any other timing function that returns time which is not affected by system clock change on Mac?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Image Change Based On Local Time?

Feb 8, 2010

I've been looking into trying to develop a flash application that has images that will change based off of the time on the clock. For example, if I had an image of a landscape with the sun in the sky, at 11:59am the image of the sun at the highest point in the sky would display. If it was 9pm, an image would display showing a night time setting of that landscape. I've seen plenty of PHP scripts for this idea but nothing in regards to flash (AS2 or 3 )

Flash :: Building A System That Allows Users To See A Video Only Once?

Dec 27, 2010

My client wants to distribute a video to some people, specifically car dealers, but he doesn't want the video to end up on Youtube or something like that. Therefore he wants the recipients of the video to be able to see it only once. My idea to implement this is:Generate a unique key per viewerSend each viewer a link to a page with a Flash based video player, with their key in the URLHave Flash get the video from the server. On the server the key is checked and the file sent (using php's readfile or something equivalent).Then the key is invalidated.I was thinking this wouldn't take more than a day to build.I know that if you want somebody to be able to play something, you implicitly give them the power to record it as well, but the client just wants me to make it as hard as possible.

Actionscript 3 :: Implement A Mixin/Trait Style System?

Apr 5, 2010

how to implement a Mixin/Trait style system in AS3. I want to be able to compose a number of classes together into a single object. Of course this is not a language level feature of AS3, but I'm hoping that there is maybe some way to do this using prototype based techniques or maybe some bytecode hacking that I believe AsMock uses to implement it's functionality.

An existing Java example is Qi4J where the user define interfaces that the Qi4j framework implements based on metadata tags and coding by convention.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Build A System Where Users (restricted To A Very Few Admins) Can Publish News Articles?

Feb 18, 2012

I'm trying to build a system where users (restricted to a very few admins) can publish news articles. The form is simple enough: an input field for "Headline" (single line) an input field for "article" (multiple line) and a file reference field to include a picture.

The idea is that you can EITHER write a headline and some text and then publish | OR | write a headline, some text then choose a picture and publish.No check boxes - no "would you like to include a picture" - just an idiot proof system where you can wither publish text - or text and a picture on the click of ONE button.

The picture is placed (via php) into the file system on the server, the text for headline and article are pumped into an SQL database (via php). I know php well and can do that bit with no probs but I'm having trouble with the function to pump the vars to the php if the user HASN'T chosen to include a picture.

1) has anyone done this before and if so do you have a "boilerplate" fla / php I could copy and paste into my project ?

2) can anyone see any problems in the code (posted below) which would explain why the upload of pictures always works but the sql insert never works ? On the stage are two input fields and two buttons (obvious names in the code are 'head_txt' and 'art_txt' )

var progressBar:MovieClip;
var reference:FileReference = new FileReference();

Flash :: Flex - Adobe Player Cache: Does Data Persist Across Different Users Of A System

Sep 16, 2009

Does anyone know if adobe flash player cache data is available to other users on a system? For example: A user logs onto Windows XP, then uses my adobe flex application... and in the process of doing so downloads the signed flex lib... He then decides to mow the lawn and log off. At about 3pm the same day, his Mum can't hear the TV over the sound of the mower, so she decides to log in using a different XP user account. She proceeds to use the very same flex application. Does she also need to download the flex lib again, or would the data already be cached in the flash player?

Allow Users Of Site To Download Large Volumes Of Image Files From Amazon S3

Jul 27, 2010

My website allows users to upload photographs which I store on Amazon's S3. I store the original upload as well as an optimized image and a thumbnail. I want to allow users to be able to export all of their original versions when their subscription expires. So I am thinking the following problems arise.Could be a large volume of data (possibly around 10GB)How to manage the download process - eg make sure if it gets interrupted where to start from again, how to verify successful download of files.Should this be done with individual files or try and zip the files and download as one file or a series of smaller zipped files.Are there any tools out there that I can use for this? I have seen Fzip which is an Actionscript library for handling zip files. I have an EC2 instance running that handles file uploads so could use this for downloads also - eg copy files to EC2 from S3, Zip them then download them to user via Flash downloader, use Fzip to uncompress the zip folder to user's hard drive.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Constraint Based Layout System For Flash CS3

Jul 24, 2007

use Flex which has a great constraint based layout system architecture by default, but in Flash CS3 there is no built in way to do this. To create intelligently resizing layouts, you have to manually resize each element on a stage resize event. This can create obscene amounts of code really fast, especially if you start to work in simple arithmetic to avoid hard coding in positions, such as "stageWidth-obj.x-obj.width" etc.

Is there any code library to do this for you built in AS3? I basically want something like this:

ActionScript Code:
var layout = new Layout();
layout.header_mc = 'left|right|top';
layout.left_mc = 'left|top|bottom';
