ActionScript 3.0 :: UIScrollbar Doesn't Scroll Through All The Text?
Sep 22, 2008
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 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'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 made text box, typed some text, converted it to a movie clip, named etc. Used a purchased and proven scroller component ... followed directions to the letter, including referencing/linking the files. However, when I tried to test the scroll bar .... the scroll bar appears, scrolls and works perfectly except the text does not appear. I have tried making a scroll bar with the UIscrollbar same thing happens. I made an other attempt and put pics along with the text in the movie clip ... this time the pics appeared and scrolled, but the text still would not appear.
I just made a scroll area with buttons and draggable items. All the code is written for vertical scrolling, the content I need to be scrolled is going to be horizontal. how can I rewrite this code to be horizontal scrolling? it seems like the scroll button (the one you drag along) doesn't stay confined to its scroll line either.
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 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 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:
I'm dragging the uiScrollbar into a dynamic text field. When I preview (control+enter) the scroll bar works fine. When I publish and preview in a browser the outline of the scroll bar is there but with out the parts/components up and down arrows the little bar you grab holt of and pull up and down.
I'm cruising through the Classroom in a Book series for ActionScript 3.0 and I'm having problems with the uiscrollbar attaching to a text field. I've used them before, but this time when I drag it over to the text field it keeps jumpimg to the outside of the box instead of attaching and I can't seem to get in inside the box unless I manually change the X and Y settings and force it where I want it to be. Even then it doesn't work correctly.
I have 3 different dynamic text boxes filled with an even amount of content and I can link the UIScollBar to one of the boxes just fine, but I can't seem to find a way to make the content in all three boxes scroll simultaneously with a single UIScrollBar?
I've gotten to chapter 5 in my AS 3.0 classroom book but I need to use wisdom today (CHAPTERS before I gain it for myself),I need to create a custom scroll bar with buttons that function just like the UIScrollBar but more visually suited to our projects. the boss demands it.
I found several tutorials on creating the custom scrollBar, however, they don't include the buttons and I'm unable to find a tutorial on how to create a button scroller (I figured I could link them both to my "info_txt" after creating them separately). how to create an AS3 text scrollBar WITH buttons? how to create a nice scroll effect with buttons(if creating the scroll bar and buttons apart then linking them to the same text field is not possible or a faulty way to accomplish this).
im new to actionscript 3. I have some problems in creating mouseover scroll. wat i want to do is to scroll the text (which was created as movie clip) when i mouse over on the button. and stop the scrolling when i mouse out. thou i have some examples on how to make it work with actionscript 1 and 2, i dunno how to change it to actionscript 3.
