i added this code (from another post on this forum) to a project i'm working on but can't seem to make it work. i am using a normal textarea, with the uiscrollbar. the text load from an XML file, all working fine. i'm trying to hide the UIscrollbar when it is not required, where textA is the instance name of my textarea.
i have done a project and i found out that i could'nt see the top part of my project as it is too long. So i was thinking of using UIScrollBar to enable me to scroll to the top. But the problem is how do i use UIScrollBar?
I am building a photo gallery and I am loading the thumbnails from an XML file into a scroll pane dynamically. As the scroll pane fills up, it gets wider to accomodate the thumbnailsThere is one row, and eventually, I want to have the user be able to mouse left or right and have the scroll pane scroll, versus clicking on the bar or the left/right arrows. However, in order to accomplish this, I need the scroll bars to disappear!
I have a small-ish text field with a decent amount oftext in it which must be scrolled through to view it all. I'veadded a UIScrollBar component (using AS3), and it shows up fine andscrolls the text fine, but it doesn't scroll all the way down tothe bottom of the text, just a little ways into it. If I use mymouse wheel and scroll the text that way, then scroll bar positionindicator suddenly shrinks and then I can use the scroll bar clearto the end of the text. But if I don't use the mouse wheel to dothis, I can't use the scroll bar to get to the end of the text.I've tried using the update() method of the scroll bar afterfilling the text field with it's content and attaching theUIScrollBar component to it. What am I missing here so that I canuse the scroll bar to scroll all the way down through the textinstead of just a little ways?
I am using AS 3 Flash CS4, WIndows XP SP3. I am unable to use the Mouse.hide(); method in many of my scripts. If I add Mouse.hide() to a preexisting script, I get the following error; line1 1061: Call to a possibly undefined method hide through a reference with static type Class. If I add Mouse.hide():void; to a preexisting script, I get the following error: line1 Label must be a simple identifier Once this has happened, if I then remove ALL lines of script from the file...but leave the Mouse.hide(); [or Mouse.hide():void;], and also remove all objects from the stage, when I run the file, I still get those same errors.
I have a dynamic text field that I create and populate with code, and a UIScrollBar that goes along with it.works correctly, the scroll-bar appears no problem.The issue comes in when I load the SWF into another project.I have a SWF interface that loads other pages (SWF, FLV, etc) When the SWF with the scrollbar is loaded into the interface, the scrollbar does not display at all.Here is the code for the scrollbar SWF, if:
import fl.controls.UIScrollBar; var myTxt:TextField = new TextField(); myTxt.border = false;
It seems the simplest way is to use the UIScrollBar, but it will not work in my Flash file.I create the dynamic text box and drop the UIScrollBar on it from the components panel, the scroll bar attaches but only shows up as a white rectangle with no arrows. When I test it it stays the same. I don't think it's just the color because when I hover over or click where arrows should be nothing happens, the text will not scroll. I can click and highlight the text to make it scroll, so I know the additional text that isn't showing up is there, I just can't scroll down to see it.The weird thing is in another flash website I have the UIScrollBar does work. I can drag the problem one from the first file into the second and suddenly the arrows appear. I even tried creating a new text box with the UIScrollBar in the working file then dragging it over to the problem one, but the arrows disappear and the bar turns into a white rectangle again.
make a text scrollbar NOT using the UIScrollbar! I have been trying to figure this out for a while.very tutorial I have used has had something wrong in the directions or something I am not looking to do. Just let me know which ActionScript to use 2 or 3.
I created a UIScrollBar and linked it to a dynamic textfield. It works OK, but if I publish it and view it in the generated HTML file (with flash player 9) it is not visible. If I view it in the standalone flash player it is fine.
The component itself works perfectly. I can create a scrollbox and the scrollbar and everything works perfectly..except that it somehow partially disables my other codes. I'm trying to create a small database in flash where I can store stuff and to quickly find what I'm looking for I made a Input Text field and added a code so that you could search for a keyframe label and then it would jump to that keyframe.The scrollbox disables the search function, although only partially! The button with the search code looks like this:[code]which means the scrollbar component somehow disables the Enter button! Weird. I know I should be content with at least the clicking working, but I'd really love to have a search where you can just simply press Enter for it to go to that keyframe.
Well, the problem didn't end there.When I try to delete the scrollbar and everything that made the search stop working, the enter button still won't work, even when I deleted all the faulty keyframes where I added the scrollbars! So I have to begin again from scratch to make it work.A scrollbox would really help me get more text into a keyframe, so I'd love to have it there. If someone can help me get this work, I'd be happy.I tried creating my own scrollbar. It works great, too, and it doesn't disable the search code. The problem is, that I made the scrollbox into a movie clip, and I need many scrollboxes with different texts, and I'd really hate to create a new scrollbox from scratch each time I need one with different text. Plus, I'll probably need 100+ scrollboxes so it'd take a while to make that many.Anyone know how you can duplicate a movie clip and then edit the duplicate without the original being edited? That annoys the hell out of me and I'd really love to be able to just duplicate my self-made scrollbox and edit the text on each one, because right now when I edit the text on the duplicate box it also edits it on the original one :/
I have a website I created in Flash (CS4 AS2), and on one page, I have a UIScrollBar component. It is linked to a text box, which loads text from an external .txt file. The page has a short pre-loader that plays while the page is loading; the page is not supposed to be shown until it's 100% loaded.
My problem is that when the page loads, the text is there, and there is a box where the scroll bar should go, but no scroll bar. The mouse wheel makes the page scroll as it should, but the bar itself is not visible or functional. If I navagate away and then return to the page, or reload the page, the bar displays as it should.
I want to add a horizontal scrollbar to a textfield that shows the text in HTML format.When I try that in other documents without scrollbar I get it to work.In the code bellow, which I mainly took from the Actionscript Reference, the code works when I use text (like in the Actionscript Reference).But when I change it to htmlText to get it HTML formatted (and get rid of the HTML codes) the textField doen't show anything.
The code: import fl.controls.ScrollBarDirection; import fl.controls.UIScrollBar;
I am attempting to use the mouse wheel with the UIScrollBar as3 component. I know the MOUSE_WHEEL event does not work on a MAC, only PC. I would like the user to be able to scroll using the mousewheel and the content as well as the Scrollbar updates (on a PC). The main issue that I can't figure out is how to update the scrollbar.
Code: Select all//mcBorder is the visible content area //mcContainer is the content that should scroll var sb:ScrollBar = new ScrollBar(); addChild(sb); setScrollBar(); addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_WHEEL, wheel_event); [Code] .....
I'm attempting to get my UIscrollBar to reposition the scroller to the top every time there's new text loaded into the textfield. I have tried scroll and scrollPostion=0 and every other keyword in the livedocs. I have even tried creating at runtime and thought that it being remade every time would reposition it but apparently not
I'm controlling a video with FLV playback custom UI components (example of what I mean can be found here - [URL]
I'm using a play button, pause button, and a seek bar. All works fine and dandy until I add a UIScrollBar to a text field that's also on screen.... for some reason this really messes with the seekbar; if you start playing the video and drag the seek bar handle all the way back to the start of the video it doesn't start playing again, and if you then move the seekbar forward a bit the video starts but skips all over the place! It's really weird and the problem completely disappears as soon as i remove the UIScrollBar component from the library.
I have a website with a dynamic text box on the stage. The three nav buttons each load in a .TXT file to the text box on mouse click. I am using the UIScrollBar component for scrolling the text that is dynamically loaded.
My problem is, when I scroll down in the text box, then click one of the nav buttons, the scroll bar doesn't reset to the top when the new text loads. I've done some research and it seems like I need to reset the verticalScrollPosition property to zero, but I can't figure out how to implement this. Flash states that it is an undefined property when I've put this line of code in to my script: myScrollBar.verticalScrollPosition = 0; I've also tried this, with no apparent effect: event.target.verticalScrollPosition = 0;
I am using Flash CS3 and Action Script 2.0 I have created a test file. See Attached
I am looking for AS to control a scrollbar with a button. Jump to headline location.
First, I have 3 buttons. Red, Blue and Yellow. Second, I have a scrollbar window with text in it. The scrollbar moves to any part of the text. The first paragraph is for the Red text, the second for the Blue text and third is Yellow text.
When you click on the "Red" button the scrollbar should move to the RED TEXT headline. When you click on the "Blue" button it should move to the BLUE TEXT headline. And the same for the Yellow.
Before I instantise a class that uses a UIScrollBar component, I am using an invalidate() call as I am trying to get an Event.RENDER off a display object and it stops the UIScrollBar from displaying and when it does due to a Stage listener event it is barely functional.
I do remember that the UIScrollBar handles its display update in a weird fashion and wonder if there maybe a conflict of events here? Does the UIScrollbar component use RENDER events that this preceding call may break?. I have tried with and without the update() method in the scroller class.
Note: it works fine if don't call the invalidate() method.
I seem to be getting this error, I am assuming that this is an event handler on the component:
TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference. at fl.controls::ScrollBar/thumbReleaseHandler()
I have a dynamic text field which loads data from an xml file, I've embedded the font so that I can tween the motions etc of the text, and so far i've been able to apply a motion tween on the alpha channel and get my text to fade in.The problem is that the UIScrollBar component which is attached to the text field gets stuck at the starting alpha amount and wont tween to the full amount (like the text will) at the moment I'm motion tweening from 33% alpha to 100% alpha and while the text reaches the full 100%, the scrollbar gets stuck at 33%.
is there anyway to get this working?I also have another smaller problem with my UIScrollbar, when it first loads it flickers as a white square in the corner of the text field for a moment before properly rendering. this happens with and without tweening. I've made my own skin for the component, could this be causing the problem somehow?I can work around the alpha issue if it renders properly instantly, and vice versa.
I have a window on my Flash stage that has some scrollable copy in it. The problem is, I can't seem to have any formatting for the text ... if I select a word or two to make bold, it all turns bold. I gather I need to use the "Display Text as HTML" checkbox and then paste in some HTML formatted text but this doesn't seem to work. I searched this forum and found that others were designating "htmlText" in Actionscript instead of just "text" ... that didn't work either. I probably just did it wrong, or maybe it's becuase I'm using the UI component "UIscrollBar" for it's scrolling of the text.
Is there anything else I need to do to be able to format some text with strong tags and maybe some href links?
I have my properties inspector with the following check marks:
