I am currently building a chinese puzzle game called tangram. I am wondering is there any method that I could do to make the movie clips to perform the "snap to grid" effect? i.e. the tangram puzzles being snapped to the pattern.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dragged Object Should Snap To The Grid If The Distance Between The Object Bounds And A Grid Line Is Less Than 5px

Jan 16, 2012

I'm trying to code the snap to grid functionality. The dragged object should snap to the grid if the distance between the object bounds and a grid line is less than 5px. I found a way to do it if the object's rotation is 0 but it doesn't work if I rotate the object. I need a different approach. Can you point me into the right direction with the algorythm or any source code?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Drag And Drop To Grid With Snap To And Text Handles?

Dec 30, 2005

The app allows the user to drag images from a libray onto a grid and position the elements within the grid. The user can also drag textfields which can be edited and resized.The grid needs to have some sort of snap-to, to make it easier for the user to line up the elements. And then I need to create resize handles around both the editable text fields and the other mc's. Has anyone seen a tutorial or can anyone help me with?

1. Drag and drop with a snap to grid

2. Resize handles for mc's, and inparticular textfields

In the end, I need to be able to track all of the x and y's of the elements on stage and then be able to rebuild their layout when it is loaded in a subsequent session. I'm sure this is going to be difficult.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash With A Grid Snap Function - Positioning Of Movie Clips

Aug 12, 2010

This is my first action script project and I'm having trouble with some positioning of movie clips that I can't work out. I'll post in the parts of the code that I think are relevant in hopes that someone may be able to see what I am missing. The problem is that according to my traces my gridSnap function should be working. The trace shows mc.y to have the correct value while the movie is running yet the mc's in question are appearing in the wrong spot (they appear at GRIDSIZE*gridNumber) in the movie. The problem only manifests itself in case one and case three, both of which should have the same code but I was only testing different approaches in case one. On with the code:

Flash :: Flex Data Grid: Check Whether Item Renderer Displays Last Row In Grid

Feb 3, 2012

I'm currently working with the OLAPDataGrid component and got stuck at a relatively simple task: I want to style the last row of the grid differently from the rest, so my cell item renderer needs to know whether he's rendering the last row with content in the overall grid, including those rows currently not rendered because they are outside the visible grid space. AdvancedGridListData's rowIndex property only gets me the row index of the renderer relative to the range of visible grid rows, i.e. when I scroll down the grid, a data item with an index greater than 0 gets the rpw index = 0.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Fade Grid Effect To Reveal Landscape

Oct 6, 2003

The tutorial I am working on is at: [URL]. I have no problem with the fade grid effect itself but... I'm trying to make one of the squares (which is a guy in the middle of a scenic landscape) visible first giving the effect that you can only see him first, then the grid squares fade in to reveal the landscape that he is standing in.

So I tried just cropping the square out in photoshop, then just placing it in the exact same spot above the original image, but everytime the movie gets to the portion in the timeline with the actionscript, the little square with the man in it disappears. I want the square with the man in it, to remain on the stage from beginning to end, as top layer.

Actionscript 3 :: Make A Grid Cell Uneditable?

Jun 10, 2011

I'm using an AdvancedDataGrid in ActionScript 3/Flex 4. The grid has 5 columns: Caller Intent, Labels, Strategy, Confirmation Mode, and Confirmation Promptlet. All columns are editable except for Labels. However, if you change the Confirmation Mode value to NEVER, the next column Confirmation Promptlet becomes uneditable and is set with the value 'n/a' (this is the desired functionality).Unfortunately, the image is not clear. In the second row, I changed the Confirmation Mode value to NEVER. This is what happens when I start tabbing out of the Confirmation Mode cell:

1st Tab: Confirmation Promptlet populated with 'n/a'. I don't see anything in focus.

2nd Tab: The 5th tab from the left in the view stack (dark grey) is in focus.

3rd Tab: I don't see anything in focus.

4th Tab: The button with the green '+' (top left) is in focus.

5th Tab: The grid itself is in focus.

6th Tab: Finally I get to the Caller Intent cell of the next row (when this image was captured)

I tried setting tabEnabled="false" and tabFocusEnabled="false" for the button. I set only tabFocusEnabled="false" for the AdvancedDataGrid. But then the Tab focus starts moving to the components in the upper right panel and lower right panel.

I need to accomplish 2 things:

1. Have tabbing be contained in the grid, in the upper right panel, and in the lower right panel. Meaning tabbing should not cross from one area to another.

2. Have an uneditable field not mess up the normal tabbing behaviour.
