ActionScript 3.0 :: 4 By 4px Stage Grid For Drawing Dots?

Jan 13, 2011

flash and at the risk of sounding like an idiot, here goes.My question is:How can I make it so that the stage is divided up into a grid of 4 by 4px spaces that can be filled with a color after a click?So far I have some code that lets you draw a 4 by 4px dot but the dots can overlap because there is no grid:

dot.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, do_stuff);
/*dot is a movie clip of a 4x4 black dot*/
function do_stuff(event:Event):void

ActionScript 2.0 :: Drawing Lines Between Two Clicked Dots Dynamically

Nov 30, 2007

I am drawing some circles with a bit of code like this:
for (var i = 0; i<=1; i++){
for(var j = 0; j<= 1; j++){
//a and b being the gap between the columns and rows

What I would like to do is add some metadata to each point I create, containing the centre coordinates for that dot (e.g. i*q, j*b). I have no idea about this part. Then with an onRelease event on a given dot , I can get the location. I have never dynamically made an event firing object. My goal is to be able to draw lines between two clicked dots. Unfortunately I have to do this dynamically so I can introduce a bit of variety.

ActionScript 1/2 :: MovieClip Control - Drawing Line By Connecting Dots

Oct 7, 2009

I've almost got a bit of flash finished, The .swf so-far is here: [URL]. For some reason the file won't attach but the important bit of code I have so-far is below. I need to make a line to literally 'connect the dots', each of which is one end of a movieclip, I know it needs to boil down to ' line x,y, to (movieclipname)x,y, but cannot work it out!

time.onChanged = function() {
if(time.text.length == 4) {
var hours:Number = parseInt(time.text.substr(0,2),10);
hours *= 60;
var minutes:Number = parseInt(time.text.substr(2,2),10);

ActionScript 2.0 :: DragOver - Drawing White Line By Erasing Dots

May 19, 2010

I have the raster of dots on white background. I would like it when I DragOver each dot it becomes white so it looks like you are actually drawing white line by erasing the dots. Ive somehow found the way how to do it by making it transparent when I rollover. But it doesnt work with dragover. How to do it only when I hold down the mouse button and drag my mouse over the dots?

This is the script assigned to MC with one black dot (I copied this MC with one dot into another MC and multiplied it to have the raster):
this.onRollOver = function () {
this._alpha = 0;
} this.onPress = function () {
this._alpha = 50;

I've tried also this, but it doesn't work:
var erasepoint = false;
this.onMouseDown = function(){erasepoint = true;}
this.onMouseUp = function(){erasepoint = false;}
this.onRollOver = function () {
this._alpha = 0;

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Most Efficient BitmapData Grid Drawing With Alpha

Oct 14, 2010

I'm looking for the most efficient possible way of drawing an 8 x 4 grid (960x600 total size). Each square of the grid has a variable alpha and the grid is redrawn every enter frame. The problem is my application is doing a lot already and I'm looking for the most efficient way to execute this loop 32 times (possible more in fact) per frame without overloading processor.

private function init():void {
var dimensions : Array = [ 0, 0, 960, 600 ];
var gridRaw : Array = [ 8, 4 ];
var stageRect : Rectangle = new Rectangle( Number( dimensions[0] ), Number( dimensions[1] ), Number( dimensions[2] ), Number( dimensions[3] ) );
[Code] .....

I'm under the impression there could be better ways of drawing the shapes straight to BitmapData without using Sprites, or maybe I'm doing something wrong about memory usage as I can see memory going up and down in a cycle.

Actionscript 3 :: Drawing API On Flex 4 Stage?

Oct 11, 2010

I'm currently trying to debug a problem in Flex 4, in where a component is firing a custom event with its local coordinates translated to global coordinates (i.e. localToGlobal) and another component (in a separate "branch" of the display list hierarchy) recieves such event and uses it as a part of an animation, via globalToLocal. It should be a simple, coordinate-transformation system but it is not working.I'm trying to debug this, by using AS3's drawing API to draw circles where the Points should be.Here is the dispatching component (Component A in the image below):

// Check where is the local x,y;,this.y, 10);[code].......

One would expect the three circles (Red, Green and Blue) to correspond, each being drawn just before the event dispatch and one (green) on event listening. What actually happens is:

Blue circle is drawn where you would expect it.

Red circle is never drawn (hence, my question on drawing on the stage in Flex 4)

Green circle is drawn in an un-expected place.

EDIT: Here is an image that explains the relationship between components and where are the dots being drawn:

ActionScript 3.0 :: Line Drawing Script On Stage Doesn't Work In MovieClip?

It works fine when it's just thrown onto the main timeline. However, when I try to encapsulate it within a movie clip, it suddenly doesn't work. At all. Are there any suggestions as to why this is happening? Here's the code.

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.

Flash 9 :: Actionscript Viewing - Converting A Graphic To A Symbol Or Drawing A Pentagon On The Stage

Someone told me once that every function in Flash has some associated actionscript being executed behind the scenes, e.g. converting a graphic to a symbol or drawing a pentagon on the stage. This person also told me that there is somewhere in which you can view said ActionScript as it's being executed. How can I do this? I deem such a feature necessary to do the projects I have been given, especially having very little experience with AS.
