ActionScript 2.0 :: Restrict Quotes In A Textfield?

Aug 13, 2009

I know how to use .restrict() to restrict or allow characters in a textfield, but how to I restrict just a double quote? "I tried with the two backslashes but that does not work.My only option seems to be to ALLOW a whole lot of character sets but leave out the double quotes. Is that truly the ONLY way?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Expression In Quotes Around The Word

Mar 22, 2009

I am scripting a button and something like this: _root.READ = ("image6"); takes me exactly where I want, the frame labeled "image6" However i want to reuse this button and I want to switch it to something like: _root.READ = (trace(this._name)); where it calls upon the instance name (image6). However, this doesn't work, and I believe it's because there are no quotes around the word. Is there someway I can output what the trace calls and put it in quotes?

Anything I can do?

IDE :: Flash Random Quotes / Text Tutorial

May 27, 2009

I'm helping w/ the website at our church and came across the "Flash Random Quotes" tutorial here on at:url..How can I do something like this, but I want the quotes to randomly display about every 10 seconds, as long as the page is open.I don't want to only have one, single random quote on page load.I'm tasked to have a random display of ongoing "testimonies" on our church website. Right now, I'm using jquery, but it's quirky (as you can see below), but the worst thing is, it isn't random - it loads the testimonies in order that they are listed in the sidebar.php file. So, everybody that visits reads the same few testimonies at the beginning, and doesn't see the other ones.I'd rather try and use Flash to pull random testimonies from the quotes file ... but I don't want it to only show one ... I want it to show a random testimony, then about 10 seconds later, show another random one, etc.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Make A Form Which People Can Use To Get Price Quotes Immediately

Feb 18, 2010

So i want to make a form which people can use to get price quotes immediately. There will be about 15 fields. I have 'some' clue as to how this 'might' be done. The 'if' statement could be used. But that sounds like a lot of combinations and a lot of scripting. I would also like them to be able to send the form to my email if they want.

Now i know how to script the basic forms.. eg. contact forms.. etc. with php and all. So once they've selected specific info from the fields, i'm sure i can have it sent into my inbox. But I don't get how to do the main thing (the price quote display - according to the information selected). Will it have to be XML based? Something to do with a database? Or what?

ActionScript 1/2 :: Double Quotes Written As " In Text File?

Feb 24, 2011

I've written some code that takes user input and adds it to some other static text which is then sent to php to be written to a text file. The file is just plain text but has the .xml extension so it can be used as a source of data. Because of the XML content the text has to contain quotes so I am looking for ways to escape the double quote characters with " or using the alternative method of using a mixture of double and single quotes to differentiate content I want in the text file and the quotes that define the boundary of the text string. The code is working but the resultant XML looks wrong, with double quotes being written as " even though I used the double/single quote method, so I'm a bit baffled why this is happening. Here's my code:

All the double quotes are being written as " which is the escape character instead of the actual character - anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Actionscript 3 :: Parsing A Large CSV File, Dealing With Commas And Quotes

Oct 12, 2010

I need to load in a large CSV file (>1MB) and parse it. Generally this is quite easy to do by splitting first on linebreaks and then commas. The problem is though that some entries contain Strings that include their own commas. When this spreadsheet is converted to CSV, the lines containing commas are wrapped in quotes.

I've written a parser that first escapes all the commas in these strings, then splits it on linebreaks and then commas, and then unescapes the values again.

This is quite a slow process for such a long string, as I need to iterate through the whole string. Does anyone know a faster or more optimised method of dealing with this?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Replacing Character Entities With Single Or Double Quotes?

Jul 12, 2007

I've got some text coming in from a database. I get:

' " " instead of single and double quotes.

I'm not sure that all fonts even support left and right double quotation marks (?).

at any rate... is there a relatively simple way to resolve this? maybe scanning the strings for the character entities and replacing them with single or double quotes?

does anyone know if Flash can recognize the ASCII entity number (e.g. ') more readily than the ASCII entity name (e.g. &rsquo?? That may be a moot point as i would have to somehow convert/replace with the entity number anyways..
