ActionScript 2.0 :: Display Special Characters For Captions With XML In A Photo Gallery

Jul 8, 2009

I have a question about XML in flash.I have a photo gallery that utilizes XML to call out the photo as well as the caption.See XML data below:[code]This is the AS that calls for the photos and captions (The whole script is very long, so I am only going to annote the part that calls for the XML): It goes like this:[code]My problem is that the data won't display special characters.I am worried because I am using multiple languages, and as it is I am having to remove important characters from translations..I also have a second AS that calls for XML data for body copy which which works great, displays all characters in multiple languages, and allows HTML code to be used:[code]Any idea on how to get the XML for the photo gallery to display all characters?

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..

ActionScript 2.0 :: Photo Gallery - Big Display / Fade Effect

Sep 12, 2006

I am new in the marvelous world of flash 8. I am building now my photo galley that I will then include in my Web site. Here are my 2 questions : My pics are featured in a big display with a thumb gallery under it. Until now I managed to create a mouse rollover effect on the thumbnails so that a big image of the thumbnail appear in the big display when I roll my mouse over its thumb. Codes are ok everything work perfectly. I want now to create 2 things :

1 : I want my images to appear in the big display by fading and
2 : I want a bigger preview window of my thumb when I roll over my mouse on each of them ( the preview window appear more or less like a tooltip and strech)

Here is the code I basically use for the gallery I achieved till now.
btn1_btn.onRollOver= function(){
myScreen_mc.gotoAndStop(1); };
btn1_btn.onPress = function() {
getURL("04big.jpg"); };
btn2_btn.onRollOver= function(){
} btn2_btn.onPress = function() {
getURL("06big.jpg"); };

Php :: Special Characters In Flex?

Jan 4, 2010

I am working on a Flex app that has a MySQL database. Data is retrieved from the DB using PHP then I am using AMFPHP to pass the data on to FlexThe problem that I am having is that the data is being copied from Word documents which sometimes result in some of the more unusual characters are not displaying properly. For example, Word uses different characters for starting and ending double quotes instead of just " (the standard double quotes). Another example is the long dash instead of -.All of these characters result in one or more accented capital A characters appearing instead. Not only that, each time the document is saved, the characters are replaced again resulting in an ever-increasing number of these accented A's appearing.

Doing a search and replace for each troublesome character to swap it for one of the none characters seems to work but obviously this requires compiling a list of all the characters that may appear and means there is scope for this continuing as new characters are used for the first time. It also seems like a bit of a brute force way of getting round the problem rather than a proper solution.Does anyone know what causes this and have any good workarounds / fixes? I have had similar problems when using utf-8 characters in html documents that aren't set to use utf-8. Is this the same thing and if so, how do I get flex to use utf-8?

ActionScript 3.0 :: XML And Special Characters?

Sep 18, 2009

I've got an XML-RPC server-client setup with Flash as the front-end and Delphi as the back-end. I'm essentially sending Strings which contain XML to Flash from Delphi. It's working without any real issues but one: Sometimes the Delphi side needs to send a ">" or "<" character in a string (e.g. "dn < ds").

This causes a problem when I try to convert the string to XML because Flash interprets that as malformed (the ">" or "<" could signify a tag). Will I have to comb the string for any occurrences and then escape them (as in "%gt;" for ">" and "%lt;" for "<") myself, or is there possibly some built-in method of dealing with those?

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.

When posted online my flash file displays the encoding tag in the xml file. AND the apostrophe, ampersand and quote marks display as html code instead of the actual character.

The display in the TextArea Component puts a little box in places where the dash and apostrophe are.

Php :: Creating XML In PHP Using SimpleXML With Special Characters?

Aug 2, 2011

I am working on project in flex 3, where user enters some text which is to be stored in a mysql database and shown later. I am using XML for data transfer from flex to php and vice-versa. SimpleXMLElement in php is being used to create the XML. The problem is the XML breaks on special characters.Here is sample code:


var someXML:XML = <root><data>somedata</data><data>...</data> ... </root>
var data:Object = {};
data.xmlData = someXML;


Here somedata is the data entered by the user. In php, I extract the someXML using SimpleXMLElement and store it to mysql. There is no problem till here. Even if somedata has special characters its working fine and data is stored properly.Now, in the other case, getting data from database and showing in flex, the response from the php breaks with an error:

SimpleXMLElement::addChild() [simplexmlelement.addchild]:unterminated entity reference

I tried using urlencode in php, and decodeURI function in flex, but the decoded string is not the same, few special characters are still %xy after decoding.

I have an XML attribute that loads text into Flash and is done so by pulling in an XML attribute value. The problem is that this is a German based xml, and the special characters (�,�) in the string are choking the Flash/XML processor.

for example this would be an xml-node attribute

ActionScript 3.0 :: Parse Special Characters From XML

Mar 10, 2010

I'm using PHP to create an XML file which is read by Flash/AS3 and displayed on a website. All is well except that I absolutely must use special characters such as, &, and '.

I've gotten all of those through XML to flash, but I don't know how to tell flash to parse the XML and save as a String rather than just save a literal string.

So I send "Single Bottle Solutions™" and I get "Single Bottle Solutions" instead of "Single Bottle Solutions".
