ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Menu Items Dynamically?


1. An XML list, which works just fine, retrieves between 3 and 15 strings (or menu names). These menu names are put into an array called, "aGalleryMenuID".

2. I want to be able to create a MovieClip and TextField dynamically for each string and place them on the stage dynamically. So if there are only 5, it will make five. 3 will only make 3. The long way of doing this is to create 15 MovieClips and 15 TextFields and use a loop to use addChild. This is okay, but what if later it is decided there needs to be 30 menu items. I want to avoid that and make this future proofed.

for loop that loops through the # of array items in aGalleryMenuID
set the MovieClip's name to a unique identifier
set the TextField's name to a unique identifier

[code]...

I am trying to learn how to add sub menu items to my main menu which is being generated using XML. I have been able to add the top level menu items but I am not sure how to integrate the sub menu items. a link to my development site [URL] In my code I have a variable showInMenu this value is true if it is a top level menu item and false if it is a sub menu item.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Document Class - Building And Adding Menu Items?
I am working on a new site, and in the site items from the library are brought on to and taken off the main stage through a handful of functions in the document class. I also have a main menu class that is responsible for building and adding menu items. The way it is built currently, these menu items must somehow reach into the document class and call the functions I created earlier, but I am unsure how to do this. Most things I find on how to call a parents method end with the person saying if it built correctly you shouldn't be doing this at all.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Mouse Event Listeners To Menu Items
What is the best way to make a menu with items that can be bought ( a.k.a shop ), bought items are invisible and there are about 20 items or so. What's the better approach than adding mouse event listeners to all 20 items?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Adding Items Dynamically To The Stage Within Set Boundaries?
Code:
function AddYCoins():void
{
for (var i:int = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
var Ycoin:YCoin = new YCoin();

[Code]...

This function creates 10 instances of my YCoin and places it around the stage. But i wish the coins to only fall in specific areas, (i.e. i have 8 green rectangles, names area1,area2 etc) because the idea is you have to collect the coins but only staying on the green rectangles.

i knows its the stage.stageWidth i need to change but i cant think what to change it too!

ActionScript 3.0 :: Add A Couple Menu Items To An Existing Flash Menu?
I need to add a couple menu items to an existing Flash menu that I did not create, but I am having trouble figuring out how to make the buttons stay highlighted until you click another one. Best way to simply describe my problem since is to simple show you. The first 5 links work exactly as they should. But the last 2 (Careers and Client login) do not stay go highlighted on the loaded page. [URL]

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dynamically Adding Random MC's In An Array And Removing Them Dynamically Again
I have a game where i add some cartoonish ants, that when they are clicked, they need to be removed from stage. There are 4 differend kinds of ants, so im doing a Math.random for picking which one to add. (ant 1+2+3 have 50% chance to spawn and 4th 50%)

Code:
rnd_nbr = (Math.random() * 5)+1;

I have a timer doing 10 tick, and i reset the timer to make neverending. Then i have a math random and if sentences adding mc' to the stage with movement from Tweener, and event listeners for clicks. But i cant figure out how to remove them when clicked. I have done alot of failed tries right inside the click_candy_anty function. I've left them commented out.

Code:
import caurina.transitions.Tweener;
var ant_index:Array = new Array(10);//index for ants
var ant_number:int;

[Code].....

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Multiple Items?
I have entered the following code and both items do import, but i cant control the label of the second library item called "Cool"After doing some digging, i think i found out the class name of the second object was called "Cool" and the base class was "import flash.display.SimpleButton;" so it looked like i had to import that class at the top like i did! But still not working. and still no joy!I think i need to add in "public class Cool extends SimpleButton" so it inherits the SimpleButton class after the first public class and then create a new function called "public function Cool() " and then add the function body but when i go to do that it all goes wrong. Am i on the right track or am i missing a trick!!

package
{
import flash.display.Sprite;

[code].....

IDE :: Combo Box Adding Items From An Array
I've got a combo box adding items from an array. The labels are working just fine, but adding the data with a variable won't work for me. If I put in an actual number, I get that result, but trying to add it with a variable I always get 1 as a result. classData only ever = 1. I can access the array. I know it must be in the syntax.[code]

ActionScript 3.0 :: CS4/AS3 Adding Transitions To Items In An Array?
The buttons search and find the movie clip in the array flawlessly, but I'm having trouble adding a transition to every movie clip as it is appears. Most tutorials on transitions require a specific instance name, but I want ALL instances to have a transition. Heard the .getChildAt() method is the way to go but cannot find solid guidance on this. Here is the basic code:

Quote:

var myDishArray = [chicken, steak, tuna, pasta, iceCream];
for each (var btn in myDishArray) {
btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, onDishBtnClick);

[code]....

how do I properly use the transition manager or add a transition code?

How To Make Menu Items Clickable
I'm creating an xml generated gallery/menu, I have the gallery and menu populating fine but my issue arises when I try to make the menu items clickable.

This is inside my populate menu function
_root["mainMenu"+[i]].onRelease = function() {
trace(this);
var splitThis:String = this
var splitThisArray:Array = splitThis.split("Menu");
trace(splitThis)
trace(splitThisArray[1])
};

Now the trace output I get is
_level0.mainMenu1
_level0.mainMenu1
undefined

Although when I set splitThis to "_level0.mainMenu1" manually I get "1" or whatever number comes after "Menu".

ActionScript 3.0 :: Menu Items As Images?
I have two PNG images that have text in them as menu items. When clicked, a new XML file is loaded and new set of photos is displaying.Everything works fine, but I want the menu item to be highlighted when hovering the mouse over the item. In other words, so that new image is displayed in place of the old one on MOUSE_OVER, and the old image is back on MOUSE_OUT.

As of now I have two menu items, Portraits and Weddings, movie clips where they are displayed are MenuPortraits and MenuWeddings

I have following properties:

[Code]...

I do see switching of images, but if I leave mouse over - it switches back and forth with high speed. Eventually, when I move mouse out - it can stuck on highlighted state.

Flex :: Adding Click Handler On SkinnableDataContainer Items
I am new to Flex. What I am looking for here is adding a click handler on all the items created by a SkinnableDataContainer. I tried several things that didn't work, and I have no idea what is the right way to do it.

<s:SkinnableDataContainer id="teamList" itemRenderer="TeamSummaryRenderer">
<s:dataProvider><s:ArrayList>
<fx:Object teamName="A super team 1"/>
<fx:Object teamName="A super team 2"/>
<fx:Object teamName="A super team 3"/>
</s:ArrayList></s:dataProvider>
</s:SkinnableDataContainer>

Furthermore, I don't want to declare the handler in my custom TeamSummaryRenderer component. I would prefer that the handler code stays at application level.

Flex :: Iterating Over ArrayCollection While Adding And Removing Items
I want to iterate over an ArrayCollection in Flex while there can be items added and removed.

Since i didn't find a way to use a "classic" Iterator like in Java, which would do the job. I tried the Cursor. But it doesn't really work the way i want it to be ;) So how do I do it nicely ?

var cursor:IViewCursor = workingStack.createCursor();
while (!cursor.afterLast)
{
