ActionScript 1/2 :: Input TextField With Specific Embedded Characters?
I have an input textfield nested inside a movieclip, i embedded a set of characters but when i run the movie i can still input characters that were not part of the embedding list. The input text field has both an instance name and variable name. If i copy that text field into an empty fla file, it works correctly by not allowing character inputs that were not embedded.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Created A Textfield (for Input) And Wanted To Make Some Calculations Using Entered Number?
I have a textfield problem. I created a textfield (for input) and wanted to make some calculations using entered numbers. But it recognizes the inputs as a string. For example;

listen=new Object();

if I enter 12 in the textfield and press Enter, result is 123, not 15. How can i make it to recognize input as a number?

ActionScript 1/2 :: Restrict Characters In A Dynamic Text Field?
The following code does what I want (i.e. any key I press on the keyboard displays the character in uppercase format in the dynamic field on the stage) except that it does not properly restrict the characters to A-Z and 0-9. I can still press the <,.>?!/ keys and each of these chars shows up in the dynamic text field My dynamic text field is txt_BoxWhat is wrong with the following code?

var varKeyListener:Object = new Object();varKeyListener.onKeyDown = function(){ txt_Box.restrict = "A-Z 0-9"; txt_Box.text = String.fromCharCode(Key.getAscii()); txt_Box.text = txt_Box.text.toUpperCase();}

Actionscript 3 :: Restrict Input To A Specified Language?
I use a TextInput component of Flex 4.5 to enter some text in English. I use the restrict attribute to ... restrict the keyboard input to characters a-zA-Z only. The problem is that if i copy/paste a word in another language, i can then paste it into the TextInput component. Is there a way to avoid that? If no, how can i validate the input against a specified language?I found out that the unicode set of Chinese+ language symbols is u4E00 to u9FFF. So i write the following:

var chRE:RegExp = new RegExp("[u4E00-u9FFF]", "g");
if (inputTI.text.match(chRE)) {

ActionScript 2.0 :: Text Input Restrict Words
I'm making a project in which I have a input/output text box. I'm trying to restrict the words that are able to be said in the input box, but I can't seem to figure out how I'd do that. I'd think that I'd use .replace, and possibly an if function which tells it that if a word used does not equal the allowed words, to replace it with something such as ###.
