Jan 16, 2006

Is it possible to ensure valid dates within flash without using the Date components?I am making a form where the user defines both their date of birth and a reservation dateSadly, I have been told that my database spits nuts and bolts if you give it an invalid date. Have tryed the Date component. It works well for reservations. But when it comes to Date of Birth it wouldn't work cause scrolling 20 odd years month by month would be too painful for a user.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Auto Format Input Text (Dates And Numbers)?

Aug 26, 2006

I have some input text fields (by the text tool, not the component) in my form that I was wondering if they could be auto-formatted. I was looking specifically for dates & numbers. For example when the user inputs 082606 and then tabs away it would immediately update to 08/26/06, or when the user inputs 50000 it would immediately update to 50,000.

Actionscript 3 :: Restrict Input To A Specified Language?

Sep 26, 2011

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

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 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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Alpha Mask - Area Of The Loader Outside Of The Mask Will Visible When The Mouse Is Down

Sep 10, 2010

I have a startDrag function set up on a loader and mask that when the mouse is down on the loader it drags, when not it doesn't. There is also 2 buttons that control whether mask1 or mask2 is used. What i would like however is when the mouse is down - the area of the loader outside of the mask is visible but only by about 10/20% alpha, that way the user can see where all the image is while dragging. Is this possible? Full code can be seen below and i have attached the zip with the .fla file:

ActionScript 2.0 :: Scriptable Mask - Large Mask Behind The Whole Of Flash Site?

Aug 19, 2003

what i am doing is to make something along the lines of the "scriptable mask" tutorial Inigo was kind enough to put up.My idea is to have a large mask behind the whole of my flash site, this masks a colour image with a black & white one (nothing tricky). The image I am using is actually 5 separate images combined, and each is a pic of certain parts of the site.I also have a very basic set of buttons along the bottom... each corresponding to each section.

All I want is to set it up so that when I mouse over the buttons, the _x of the mask moves to correspond with the correct image... really very basic... or so I thought .If anything it should be easier to do than what is in Inigo's tut (where he uses the _x of the mouse to move the mask)... i just cant seem to get it to work with a nice easing effect (its easy to get the mask to simply snap to each coordinate, but I need it to smoothly move).

Create Own Mask Around A Jpg Image By Drawing Around It On The Mask Layer

Dec 4, 2009

maybe point me towards a better way to mask. png file is way too big. I have been using the mask layer option to create my own mask around a jpg image by drawing around it on the mask layer. There has to be a fetter and faster way to do this. Is it possible to maybe have a specific color range have an alpha value of 0. Similar to green screening whereas If I put the item I want to clip on a green background flash will auto take out the green for me. and by auto I mean action script maybe. I think this can be done but im not finding it.

how are these guys clipping these images [URL] they have the movie clips set up where the black background on the 3 layers of shoes is getting masked out. When I go into the shoe movie clips I see there is a black background but it just disappears when I go back to main timeline.
