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
var drawingLine:MovieClip = new MovieClip();

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 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);

Flash - Drawing Custom Polygons In Box2D?

Apr 14, 2011

I'm making a Flash game, and I've encountered a really weird problem while trying to draw a polygonal shape in Box2D.

Here's the code I use:

var fixtureDefs:Array = new Array();
var fDef:b2FixtureDef = new b2FixtureDef();
fDef.density = 0;


Where vertexArray is a valid array containing 4 b2Vec2 vertices, making up a convex shape.The problem is, when I test, collisions don't work right for that body. Most other objects -enemies, user-controlled characters - pass straight through, as if the body isn't there at all. Some raycasts pass through as well.

Infuriatingly enough, one kind of bodies I have (a custom enemy) somehow does detect the body and collides with it. The raycasts that particular kind of enemy attempts do work - when your character hides behind the polygon, it's like they can't see him.The other weird thing: when I try the same code, only go for SetAsBox instead of SetAsArray, it works exactly as it should.I'm using a custom ContactListener class, but I haven't done any contact filtering (unless it's possible to do that without realising).I'm using the Flash 9 version of Box2D 2.1a.

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 :: Replacing A MovieClip With A Drawing?

Oct 27, 2010

I'm creating a platforming game, and I have a fun little water thing set up. My goal is to be able to drag a water object from the library to the scene, and have the water physics kick in when the game starts.
To do this, I made the water object a black line, because width is necessary to know how wide I'd like the pool to be.  Within the class I have a heightmap, so then I can connect all the heights together with lines using the drawing API.
The problem is, I can't get the original black line to disappear while still displaying the new lines and points Setting the alpha to 0 will permanently make everything invisible.  I'm kind of new to this so maybe it's a dumb question.

Actionscript 3 :: Foreach Drawing Object In Movieclip?

May 26, 2010

I got a europe map designed in flash (1 movieclip, 1 frame, really simple), which contains the map as drawing objects directly inside the scene and in addition some specific countries as clickable buttons. So far it's working fine. What I need now is to make all the other drawing objects clickable without having to edit and script each object. I'm thinking about something like this (pseudo code):

foreach(obj in MovieClip) {
if(obj !typeof(Button)) {
obj.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, genericClickListener);

I just don't know the syntax how to achieve that.

Flash - Drawing Sprites Between Layers On MovieClip

Aug 10, 2011

Is it possible to draw a sprite, on a movieclip, on a specific layer? I have a MC I created in the Flash designer, and it has 3 layers on it, background, some layout stuff, and then some text. In actionscript i've created a Sprite object in code, drawn a rectangle on it, and added it to the stage with addChild (called from within the MC). The problem is, the sprite is always being drawn above all the layout stuff I added in the designer. Is there any way to add the sprite to the MC at a specific layer? In this case the background layer. I tried changing the z on the sprite and no effect.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing A MovieClip To A Bitmap As Though It Was The Screen?

Jun 23, 2009

Basically, I have a BitmapData object which is acting as a virtual screen.

I have a MovieClip which I want to render to the bitmap using the same transformation as though the bitmap were the screen. However, the MovieClip is not attached directly to the root

The BitmapData.draw() method takes a Matrix as an optional parameter, which I think I need to set as the MovieClip's localToGlobal transformation matrix. However, I don't know how to obtain or construct this!

ActionScript 2.0 :: Drawing Line Behind Cursor Movieclip

Feb 21, 2012

I'm working on a Flash project in which the user can choose to draw on the stage. To indicate to the user that it's possible to draw, I'm changing the default cursor to a pen image. I'm doing this by attaching a movieclip to the cursor, then hiding the cursor:

ActionScript Code:
on (press) {
penOn = true;


All this works great, with one problem. The line users draw appears on top of the custom cursor, so if they go back over something they've already drawn, they can't see the cursor anymore. I've tried a bunch of fixes, but nothing has worked. FYI, that first block of code I pasted is attached to the button that turns the pen on, while the second block of code is in the bottommost layer of the movie.

(using lineto, moveto) However this polygon is always behind the other symbol objects on the screen even though its added last in the childlist. Is there an issue with depth when drawing symbols vs. drawing with lines? How can I ensure my dynamic object will display in front?

Flash :: Scaling Drawing Objects Inside Movieclip?

Apr 12, 2011

So I've got problem with some drawing objects inside movieclip in my flash file... Setting width and height of flash to match browser's w&h got my movie clip to get correct values, but unfortunately drawing objects inside of it are not scaled as movieclip. Those object are just random stripes that got some tween on it acting as somekind of preloader... All graphics are pulled from ai file, so no AS was used to manipulate them, just pure tweening in design mode...So if my stage w & h are lets say 720 x 50, graphics inside movieclip are 1600 x 900 which match my monitor's resolution.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Drawing A Boundary And Testing It Against Only A Part Of A Movieclip?

Nov 23, 2010

I have a map of isometric buildings that the player walks around. in the image I have 1 and 3 working fine. I find the corner points of the building and test it against the players location and sort out their depths. easy.but 2 and 4 are the trouble makers. the left and right side of the building.because its isometric there is that diagonal line making up the only idea so far is to draw a line box around the building at test collisions against the "feet" of the player. but to do that I must draw a box and make it invisible but still be testable against only the bottom portion of the player, the players feet.
