ActionScript 3.0 :: Restrict Html Input In Text Field?

Feb 14, 2010

What's the best way to restrict the user from entering html entities in a text input box.I want to allow then to enter stuff like dollar signs, pound signs and spaces but anything such as

ActionScript Code:
<> & ' / "

ActionScript 2.0 :: Put Some HTML Code In The Input Text Field?

Dec 10, 2007

I have an input text field beneath a video and I want to put some html code in the input text field so that a viewer can select that text and put the embed code on their site (similar to youtube). The problem is that I want the input text field to be a certain width and the length of the code snippet exceeds that length. Is there a way to do it so that the part of the code that goes past the length of what I want my input text field to be is cropped, but is still selectable by the user? I've seen this done with html form fields, but not flash.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Text Input Restrict Words

Jan 4, 2010

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 ###.

ActionScript 1/2 :: Restrict Characters In A Dynamic Text Field?

Jun 16, 2009

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 3.0 :: Restrict Input Text Via Width Of Textbox?

Feb 10, 2011

I'd like to restrict the amount a user can type into a textbox based on the width of an existing textbox on the stage. I played around with the max chars but when you type something like a 'W' it is considerably wider than something like a 'i' (current font is 19px vs 4px wide). I was playing around with .textWidth, but wasn't sure how to use that value to restrict the textbox.

Mar 30, 2006

I'm making a calculator using Flash MX that works the same way as the basic calculator found on windows (not the scientific one). But having the user input a number, store it as a variable, store which function the user wants to perform and clear the text field then store the new input in the same text field as a different variable and multiply or add or divide or subtract the 2 numbers and getting the equals sign to display the answer when clicked is harder than I thought it would be.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Text Field From An Input Text Field

Dec 16, 2010

What I'm trying to do is to write something in an input field and then it should show up in a dinamic field. I can make this happen, but the problem is that the dinamic field shows its new text in the same format as the Input field. For example, the input text is written in TimesNewRoman and the dinamic text is in Arial, but when the dinamic text shows the input, the text is still in TimesNewRoman when I want it to be in Arial.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Showing Text Field As HTML Field With XML/CDATA.?

Aug 26, 2007

Trying to get a text field in my Flash MX movie to pull from and XML file with CDATA tags to show as HTML. I've checked the box to render as HTML for the text data field... but I'm having problems with the Actionscripting.

The field from this line is what I need to recognize as HTML reading CDATA tags:

this.ref["textField"+i].text = subnodes[3].firstChild.toString()

I know I need to do more than just change it to ".html" instead of ".text" and have tried a couple things, but nothing seems to work.

//Create the XML Object
myXML = new XML ();

Jan 28, 2009

I want to create an input text field that can be editable by the user and essentially when they click submit it turns this into HTML code with p, br, strong and em tags.

I don't know if it is possible, I assume it would be, but my searches are not turning up much.

I want the user to be able to select a section of text and click a B button to surround that selected text with strong tags, same for italics.

I also want to give the ability to at least record when the user presses enter in order it insert p tags and maybe even br tags if they press shift+enter
