ActionScript 2.0 :: Enabling Drawing Only When Drawing = True

Sep 28, 2009

I cannot get this to work. Without the "var drawing", "var drawing being true or false" and the "if statement", it works fine. But I need to add the "var drawing" so that you can only draw if you turn it on by pressing the "draw_btn" button. Note, I do not get an error, the script "apparently" contains no errors. Here is the code:

ActionScript Code:
var drawing = false
_root.createEmptyMovieClip("myLine", 0);

ActionScript 3.0 :: Generate Drawing API Data From Drawing Object?

Jul 22, 2009

Basically I've got a reasonably complex drawing object in a fla and I want to reproduce it in a class definition using the drawing api. However obviously this is a tedious task, so is there some trick or automated method of doing this?

Last time I needed to do this it was a drawing of an arrow and I ended up writing down x,y,width,height values for everything but this one has curves in it which I don't have experience with drawing anyway.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing Over A Movieclip In A Custom Drawing App?

Jan 13, 2012

I've created a drawing tool which allows the user to draw on the canvas, the problem is that if I try to draw over a movieclip nothing happens. Is there a way I can allow for the user to draw over movieclips? For example if I had a background of paper?

Here's the code I'm using for it:

// This code is for drawing the lines on the page

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing Api Drawing 40,000 Objects

Feb 18, 2009

I need to draw on stage about 40,000 4x4 squares each a different color. The color is determined by an xml file. I have this working in as2 and have converted it to as3 the problem is the amount of time it takes to draw is causing cs4 to time out. I have extended the script time out to 60 seconds. In cs3 as2 it would draw the squares in about 15 seconds. I was hoping as3 cs4 would improve performance but seems to be the opposite. I have tried several methods such as adding children and various drawing variations. the bellow seems to work the best, but is still causing flash to crash.

ActionScript Code:
import flash.display.DisplayObject;
import flash.display.Graphics;
import flash.display.Shape;

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing API To SWF?

Jul 10, 2009

I have an app that allows the user to draw and create temporal objects (sounds and animation).I want the user to be able to SAVE and PUBLISH their output as an SWF file they can download to their computer. I have no problem with the drawing and animation aspects, but I'm stumped on how to begin coding the output. Do I need to call some remote actions (JSFL) on the server to create the SWF? How would be the best way to pass the data?

Drawing The Pythagoras Tree?

Feb 26, 2009

I want to program a program that draws a Pythagoras tree. The only programming language I know is C but I tried it in that language and it was horrible. Someone recommended Flash (AS3) to me so I am trying it in that now, but I only started yesterday so that's why I am posting this in the newbies forum. If this belongs in the math forum, then please move it there.

Anyway, I got to the point where I can draw the leftturning branch of the Pythagoras tree, but I don't know how to draw the other branches. The number of "houseshapes" a square with a rectangular triangle on top increases with every step according to the formula 1 x 2^(n-1) (First step is n=1). I created a function that draw this houseshape, called drawHouse() and it takes as its arguments the co-ordinate of the lower left corner of the square part of the house, the length of the side of the square part of the house and the current rotation angle. Rotation angles are always multiples of 45 for now, but I might try to expand it to other values later, but for now I hardcoded a lot of stuff that assumes the 'roof' of the house is a rectangular triangle.

how do I store the 2 new x and y co-ordinates that I can calculate after drawing the houseshape, for drawing the next houseshape, and how do I store the angles? Do I need 3 separate arrays for x, y and angle? And how do I then call the houseshape function for every x and y co-ordinate and angle in these arrays? Code is attached.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Allow Vector Drawing In .swf??

Nov 29, 2011

I have seen flash games where the player can actually draw objects. Meaning they have like a pen cursor in the game, and they can just start creating vector art. I have a game in mind where it might be a cool feature to have the user draw a few things. I bet this is a heavy subject so I am not asking for every bit of code I'd need to create something like this, but I have searched quite a lot for anything remotely brushing on this subject and clearly I have no idea what I should be punching into google.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Way To Clear A Drawing

Mar 25, 2012

I have a project I am working on in which I would like to teach how to cash a scratch off card. I have made the scratch and made it so it will "scratch", however my masking technique seems to not be working how it should...

The idea is that the user would "scratch" the card and then hit "Next" after that it would load a new frame (Progress Bar would move) and then do what they need to on that frame, and so on.

However it would seem that Flash is keeping the users "drawing" and still allows them to draw after the first frame, which is not what I want.[code]...

How To Tween Drawing Object

I've received a number of graphics from an Illustrator user - they imported as symbols containing drawing objects.   When I opened one of these symbols and tried to tween (fade out) the drawing object, I don't have the Alpha option.   I don't use Illustrator myself and I had to install CS4 so I'm not used to that either.

Flex :: Drawing A Stick-man In AS3?

Oct 25, 2010

It looks to me like the easiest route in AS3 is to use a Shape/Sprite's Graphics property to draw these lines, clearing and re-drawing each time the stickman changes. But some of the newer Flash 10 stuff seems to suggest a closer functionality to 3D graphics where you can define points and lines/triangles and then move the points rather than recreating all from scratch each render. Is this the case?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Polygon Drawing App?

Aug 10, 2011

I want to create an app for drawing polygons with a variable number of vertices, with the following requirements (very similar to a vector drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator):

-each click of the mouse on the stage sets a vertice (e.g. draws a small square or circle to mark the spot), which draws a line to (e.g. LineTo) the prior vertice, and so on, until the final click, if close enough to the first vertice, will complete and close the polygon

-each of the vertices of the completed polygon should be draggable with the mouse, so that that completed (or partially completed) polygon maintains its integrity while changing shape, that is, so the user can modify the polygon shape without having to redraw it. it's the second step I'm having the most difficulty general terms, how would I implement this? Perhaps each vertice should be a draggable Sprite containing a small square or circle graphic?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Using Drawing API To Mask?

Jun 15, 2006

I'm trying to get a better handle on creating dynamic content, so I made a little experimental Flash file to test out programming with more robust and portable code to accomplish it (). I have two functions, one creates rounded rectangles and the other regular rectangles. I'm planning on using the regular rectangle to hold an image (which it does), and the rounded rectangle as a mask to give the appearance of a rectangle with uh, rounded corners. I've run into a couple problems with this:

1. The mask doesn't apply to the image. The regular rectangle (pictureHolder_mc) will appear and the picture (a .JPG file) will load into it; the rounded rectangle (pictureHolderMask_mc) will even appear on top of the picture. But as soon as I use the setMask() method, the mask disappears and not in the cool applying-to-the-movie way.

2. Both the rounded rectangle function and regular rectangle function have parameters for X and Y coordinates that worked fine when I was testing without trying to load an image. As soon as I did, it'd put the image at (0,0) for some reason, even with 300 passed for X and 50 for Y.

3. I've set up an onRelease() function for the image-holding movieclip that calls a tweening function, just to test out functionality. It doesn't work so hot; the mouse doesn't even turn into the clicky button cursor when the movieclip's rolled over.

import mx.transitions.Tween;
import mx.transitions.easing.*;

Just wanted to know if anyone came across this before or have a theory that can give me some insight to solve this problem..
