Trying to get this horizontal dock menu to be vertical and not pivoting from the center. I want to have the frist item of the array (holding the menu to be at a fixed position e.g (0,0). And i want to be able to hover vertically along the y axis [code]I have attached the fla i am working on. I think i am almost there, just need some tweaks to make it 100%.
I am having a problem with my text alignment and I can't figure out a way to correct this. Unfortunately, I'm using a mac with CS3 and a Windows computer with CS4, so it could either be an OS difference, a version difference, or a software bug which I can't figure out.
Update: I downloaded a trial CS4 and the problem persists. This seems to be a mac issue. For some reason, the text on my Mac with CS3 are not in the vertical center of the text fields. This causes a problem with my "align vertical centers" alignments, meaning I've had to do the alignment by hand to get it to look right. When I moved my file to my laptop to keep working on my project at home, I noticed that the text alignment was correct on my laptop, causing all of the text placement throughout my document to be off. This means that I can only work on the one computer and can't bring the project home to work through the weekends. I have made an image showing the difference of how the text is aligned on the two versions, and a sample of how it affects my project when i bring it between computers.
I made the file on the mac (CS3) first, and so the alignment is designed to look correct on there. When i bring it to the PC (CS4) the text shifts down, placing it back in the center of the text boxes and ruining the alignment. When I publish the file it keeps the formatting of each system. IE - publishing on the mac makes the final product look like it does on the mac, and publishing on the windows computer makes it look like it looks on the windows computer. The file published from the mac has the mac alignment on both computers, and the file published from the pc has the alignment of the pc on both computers.
Just to clarify, the way flash handles text fields on windows / cs4 is how I imagine it should be. I made the file on mac/CS3 however, and so when i said "ruins the alignment" I should have said "fixes the alignment problem, but breaks my alignment which was made to compensate for the problem I was experiencing."
I've used the following code to create a textField and style it with a little CSS my problem is the textFeild is as wide as the stage and I want to center the text so its in the middle of the stage but when i use the css attribute textAlign the text is almost all the way to the right instead of centered
var msg19:TextField = new TextField(); msg19.width = stage.stageWidth; msg19.height = stage.stageHeight;
I'm doing some tests and I'm trying to create a simple presentation. It's not something I'll be using online. I just want it to present some things at school. Since I don't know the resolution of the monitor at school, I wanted something I could max the window and rest with the content (stage) centered. At start, everything was working fine but sudenly the stage started to be aligned to top left when exported and windows maximized. Here's my code:
The bkg.swf is an external background I'm using... it ajusts it's size to fill all the window automaticaly. When I first wrote this code, it was working fine. Than I added some objects and MC's to the stage and now whenever I export the file it's aligned to the top left of my window.
I have a dynamic textfield that I am creating in an as3 class. It's a set pixel height.Sometimes it will have up to three lines, but sometimes only one. I know there is not vertical align property. But what would be the solution for aligning this to the bottom? In as2 there was a way to count lines. But I'm having trouble finding that in as3. Not to mention, once I have a line count, how will I shift it down
I'm having trouble vertical aligning text inside cells in a DataGrid in Flex. I tried this.setStyle("vertical-align", "middle) in an itemRenderer on the column but it doesn't seem to work. I tried verticalAlign as well.
I need a script that will let a user scroll a movieclip Horizontally AND Vertically. Just like a regular vertical scrollbar which u always see, it has an up arrow and down arrow. i need that, as well as a right and left arrow.i have a big image file, and i want to mask it, and let users scroll thru it up down right and left.
I went through the tutorial on the website to create a slideshow using xml linked images. My problem is I want to use it for Horizontal and Vertical pictures both.All images align at top left of the loader box making one or the other offcentered.
1.) Is there a simple way around this?
2.) Is there a way to get the xscale or yxcale to determine whether the image loading is vertical or horizontal and then based on that to have an If statement and load all Horizontal images into a one movieclip and all others(vertical) into another movieclip.
I`ve been trying this tutorial [URL] , but what I need is to make it run vertically... What i tried is to change _x with _y and xMove with yMove and if there is somewhere else X to Y (i dont remember the code) ... the result .. it didn`t work :S Is it possible to make it run vertically?
When I do Publish settings (HTML tab), I would like to set it the way that my swf would be floating in the middle of the screen.However, I always end up with my website being "stuck" on the left or right side of the screen.These are the settings I have done, which result in the site being placed on left side of the screen:
TEMPLATE: Flash Only DIMENSIONS: Match Movie PLAYBACK: none is checked
I used the publish feature of flash but it does not seem to center the SWF in the browser. Why is there a centering feature on the publish settings under HTML tab if it does not center the SWF? It only works if you set Dimensions to Percent but that exposes the area beyond the stage and i don't want it to be seen. In addition that causes some movieclips to be improperly positioned. The Flash Alignment should have been disabled if the Dimensions is not set to Percent. Perhaps a simple script that centers my swf file in a browser..
I am attempting to modify an example file that I found from a vertical to horizontal scroller. I changed the movie clip to horizontal, what I need to change to get the arrows to scroll the movie clip horizontally.
I want my page to be covered with thumbnails (not just in a row) then when you click on a thumbnail the image will open up either vertical or horizontal on top of the thumbnails. How can I do this without scripting or does anyone know of a simple way to do this with either Flash or another Product?
