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);

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;

How To Tween Drawing Object

Aug 28, 2009

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.

Drawing Tool - How To Add Stroke To Object

Apr 16, 2009

I'm having a hard time with strokes. First I selected a stroke and the properties panel would not let me change it's thickness. How to add a stroke to an object. We used to have a tool that allowed us to apply a stroke to an object. That is gone now. How we attach a line to an object now?? It looks like Adobe has changed Flash CS4 to be more like Photoshop. It is about as intuitive as a tax form.

Can't Select Parts Of Drawing Object

Oct 23, 2009

Well, I've been using flash a while, but I just ran into a newbie problem.. I must have hit some sort of hotkey, but I can't figure out how to undo it or anything in the preferences. Anyways, I'm running Flash CS4 and normally when you draw a shape and select that shape it selects the fill and it looks like little dots all over the shape when its selected. Now when I click on a shape it has a border around it and I can't just select a piece of the shape. Also, what's bothering me is that when you draw two shapes on top of each other, Flash used to merge those shapes automatically, but now they are staying separate unless I manually Union them. It still says they're drawing objects, its not converting them to symbols or anything, but they are kind of acting like symbols in the way I can interact with them. How can I turn this setting off?

Drawing Object Looses Roundness When Enlarged

Aug 10, 2009

In my movie I have a round drawing object, which I wish to view enlarged (about 2000% of original size). While editing it looks fine and round but after publishing all the roundness is lost and instead I get visible angles. I attach 2 images to visualize, one from the editing stage and the other after publishing. Is there any way I can get around that strange effect? I created the image from some text i "broke apart" to a drawing object.

Object Drawing Poorly Aligned Bounding Box?

Whenever I draw a shape with Object Drawing turned on the blue bounding box that appears whenever it is selected isn't aligned properly to the outer edgers of the shape.  Like this:
Admittedly it isn't a major problem it's just a bit irritating especially when people I'm teaching to use Flash ask me why it looks the way it does.
Does anyone else have this problem?

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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Save Drawing Data To A File On A Hard Drive

Feb 27, 2010

I'm still relatively new to the actionscript 3.0 world. I have been given an assignment to make a drawing program that allows me to do many different things. One of the big things that it needs to do is be able to save a file with the drawing information and still be editable. After much searching I see that you can't just write sprites to a file and then they come back cleanly, obviously returns null. I also don't think that registerClassAlias won't work because I don't think it will allow me to convert things back to a sprite. I keep an array of sprites that allows me to undo/redo, and I originally figured I could either write the arrays or the individual sprites to the file, but that is not allowed either. Does anyone have any idea how I can possibly accomplish saving my drawing document and loading my document with keeping all of my sprites in my array separate from each other?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dynamic Line Drawing From Object Locations?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm creating a flash based dynamic electrical circuit board and have come across a problem. I have a function that is a fired from ENTER_FRAME event that loops though an array where each element contains the following:

'#parentObject1#ChildObject1#parentObject2#ChildOb ject2#Colour'

To Clarify - A line should be drawn from ChildObject1 to ChildObject2 in the saved colour. The above is a string. I slice at each '#', which is working. Each object gets added through my created toolbox so added dynamically.I can get the DisplayOBject of the parents by using - var obj1:displayObject = getChildByName(sliced[1]);

But cannot do the same for the Child object by - var subobj1:displayObject = obj1.getChildByName(sliced[2]);The reason for this is that each parent can be dragged so I would like the drawn line to move with the to find the child objects

Actionscript 3 :: Box2D In Flash Runs Quicker When Drawing Debug Data Than Not?

Jan 24, 2010

I've created a small game with Box2d for AS3 - I have sprites attached to the stage that take their position from the underlying Box2d world. These sprites are mostly PNGs.When the game runs with DrawDebugData() bening called every update, it runs nice and smoothly. However when I comment this out, it runs choppily. In both cases all my sprites are being rendered. So it seems that it's running faster when it's drawing the debug data additionaly (i.e. my sprites are on the screen in both cases!)What's going on? Does drawing the debug data flick some sort of 'render quick' switch? If so, what's the switch!? I can't see it in the Box2D code.

function Update(e){
m_world.Step(m_timeStep, m_velocityIterations, m_positionIterations);
// draw debug?[code]...

Interestingly, If i set the debug draw scale to something different to my world scale, it slows down to 19fps. So there's something happening when it draws the boxes under my sprites causing it to run quicker..

Flex :: Force Delay Render Until Receive Data Before Drawing To Screen

Mar 13, 2010

In my Flex application, using a custom control, I am making a JSON request to grab some data from the server. My rendering depends on this data such as knowing how many boxes to draw. How can I either force the rendering to wait until I've got the data before drawing to screen or have the boxes draw once we receive the data? I have an event listener for Event.COMPLETE for my JSON request and in there, I call methods that add to the control. I've tried invalidateDisplayList but that doesn't seem to do anything for me?
