Dynamic Input Box - Adding Two Numbers

Feb 24, 2011

I using Flash CS5 for the first time, and I'm hitting a snag. I have an input box on Scene 1 for age (variable called old). On scene 3, I have a dynamic test box (variable called display), where I want to display the age (old) + 10.

My Code looks like this:
PHP Code:
var Real_age = Number(old) + 10;
display = Real_age;
It's returning NaN.

A trace of the output of Real_age gives:
PHP Code:
<FONT FACE="Times New Roman" SIZE="12" COLOR="#009900" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">2</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>
<p align="left"></p>

The code works OK in Flash 8, but I figure I must have some some setting that is spitting out the unwanted HTML.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 - Input Text Box Not Reading Numbers?

Dec 16, 2009

I have an input text box and I want the user to be able to enter a number in the text box and hit a button and it will jump to that frame of a movie clip. For some reason I can't get the input text to read the input as a number. I have tried using parseInt or Number, but it gives me this output instead. "<TEXTFORMAT LEADING="2"><P ALIGN="CENTER"><FONT FACE="Myriad Pro Light SemiCond" SIZE="13" COLOR="#000000" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">2</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>" when I just want it to say "2".

Here is the code I have linked to the button:

btn_newPage.onRelease = function (){


On the trace of pageString I get the text i put in above and then pageNum comes back as NaN.btn_newPage is the button they would click after they have input a page number in the input text box. pageString is the name of my input text box variable and I was trying to use pageNum to change it to a number. And doc_content is the movie clip I am trying to control.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Numbers From Input Boxes?

Jan 28, 2011

I'm stumped on this problem and can't seem to figure it out. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Basically I'm building a large calculator that adds over 100 input boxes. I've got it working except for the fact that if a user misses inputing a number into one of the input boxes it does not work anymore. I've tired lots of things to no avail. I just want to add the input boxes and skip those where the user did not enter any information (does not apply to them)

Here is my code.

on (press){
ReceptionTotal = Number(LocationFee) + Number(Caterer) + Number(ToastingGlasses) + Number(SecurityFee) + Number(BarPackage) + Number(WeddingCake) + Number(FoodHors) + Number(Baker) + Number(BartentingFee) + Number(CakeKnife) + Number(Servers) + Number(Flatware) + Number(Dinnerwear) + Number(Flatware) + Number(TableLinens) + Number(ChairsCovers) + Number(Glasswear) + Number(Tent) + Number(Napkins) + Number(Childcare) + Number(DanceFloor) + Number(ServingStaff) + Number(Lanterns) + Number(Heaters) + Number(Restrooms);

each input box has a variable name assigned to it as indicated above. I've tired setting the variables to 0, tried if statements don't know how to skip one of the above variables when no number is entered.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Capturing User Input Restricted To Just Numbers?

Nov 14, 2008

I've written a function that restricts user input to just numbers (0-9,.) and stores the input in the associative array, userInput[]. It works but seems inefficient looping through the entire input text string to scrub out invalid characters. Anyone have suggestions for a more efficient approach? Note that a working solution must correctly process mouse or cursor key movements/edits within the input box.

Also, you can see I'm using the KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP event to trigger the processing. The docs seem to indicate TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT is really the proper event for this purpose. I started with TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT but found the event is triggered before the last key pressed is actually added to the instance. The result is that the function was always one characterbehind. Is there an easy way to get the current text in the input box, including the last key pressed, when processing TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Auto Format Input Text (Dates And Numbers)?

For example when the user inputs 082606 and then tabs away it would immediately update to 08/26/06, or when the user inputs 50000 it would immediately update to 50,000.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 Number-cast Input String Versus Numbers - Inconsistent Traces Between Computers?

May 26, 2009

We're making a simple input text comparisons vs. some constant floating point numbers (e.g. 4.35). Using Actionscript 2 to Flash 9 export. Getting totally contradictory traces on two different computers compiling identical code...Here's some simple code we're using to figure out what's going on.




Also, what behavior do any PC users have? I'm expecting the latter since they're generally intel chipsets too?Note: once i compile the code on my PPC mac, intel macs that run the SWF (but don't recompile the FLA) do return the correct booleans that match the PPC output.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Auto-mate The Input Process So That When A User Inputs 3 Numbers Into The First Field, It Automatically Jumps To The Next One?

Oct 12, 2009

I am trying to automate the input process so that when a user inputs 3 numbers into the first field, it automatically jumps to the next one. I have the code to do it and it seems as though it should work but, for some reason, when I move focus from one field to the next the data in the previous field is re-arranged so that the last character input becomes the first (610 becomes 061 - for example).Here is my code:

phone1.width = 30;

Nov 2, 2004

how to do this and not found much, so here goes:

I want to generate a variable number of random numbers less than 16 with no duplicate numbers

Ive posted the fla, and what i'm doing is generating a random number and putting it into an array then using a for loop to cycle through the array for each new random number to check if its already there. if it is, then i want to regenerate that number.

if you test the fla you'll see that all i get in my array is some lovely zero's and i sort of know why this is, but don't know how to stop it.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating Function To Pick Out Numbers From A Set Of Numbers?

Nov 18, 2009

create a function that picks out X amount of numbers from a set of numbers? So if X=3, then i need this function to pick out 3 different numbers from say a set of numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) and then stored it into X number of variables.

In saying that, X will only =2, and =5. So in the first instance, i'll need 2 random numbers from the set above that are not the same numbers, and second instance 5 random numbers from the set above (also no repeats of numbers). Then i need to be able to store those 2 or 5 different random numbers from the set into variables to call them with other functions.
