Can't Successfully Publish Movie?
I'm not getting an error message when I publish my movie (CS4). I'm able to navigate to the end of the movie, so the nav bar and background image are there, but after a number of images and sound bites, other images don't appear nor do the associated sound bites play.I've removed lots of tween, which has helped some, but not enough. I've attached 2 examples. Example one is as it should be. Example 2 is what happens after several images. Attachments:example2.jpg(16.6 K)example1.jpg(39.2 K)

Flex :: Successfully Gotten Swfaddress To Work With IE8 And Above?
Has anyone successfully gotten swfaddress to work with IE8 and above?It seems that when using standards mode, swfaddress will appear to work fine in IE8 and IE9, however, once the user modifies the hashtag in the address bar, the history list becomes corrupted.In cases where the user starts the application via the hash tag url...), and then visits another hash (url...1), the history is never saved.I have tried playing around with swfaddress 2.5 in the svn repository. Interestingly, the code is similiar to JQuery Address (by the same author). I also note that JQuery Address suffers from the same problem.If I turn on compatibility mode in IE, the swfaddress and JQuery Address works perfectly. I have been looking into how compatiblilty mode works, and it does not seem like it would modify or affect javascript execution.Was anyone able to successfully solve this issue? If not are there any other deep linking libraries for flex or flash that contains all the feature sets of swfaddress?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Incorporate SWFAddress Successfully?
However, digging through the SWFAddress forums (as well as their brief documentation), I'm left with the idea that a site must have a very linear navigation in order to take advantage of SWFAddress's deep linking feature. Basically, the Nav must be timeline based, rather than AS based.The site I've designed uses a very common dynamically loaded swf architecture. Does this mean that any site using this architecture will not support deep linking at allSome background on what I'm trying to achieve: I'd like a unique URL that links directly into a section of the Flash site. The 'section' of the site is reached by simply having the right swfs loaded into their container clips.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Cannot AddChild On Stage After EventDispatcher Successfully Loaded The Image?
I am trying to learn how to use EventDispatcher. I create xml gallery where I am loading content via xml.In this particular case, I am not loading a sequence of multiple images. I load just one image. I traced the path to the image location and it is correct. I have a very hard time placing the loaded item to stage. I can trace EventDispatcher functions from EventDispather Class.When I do that, the trace statements confirm that the image is loaded. I am wondering what I should do in order to place the image on stage. I definitely cannot do it from EventDispatcher class directly or I am missing something.Below is my EventDispatcher class.find out about the correct technique to add the loaded item on stage after EventDispatcher was run. Below is the class of my EventDispatcher.

ActionScript Code:
package net.EvtDisp {
import flash.display.Bitmap;[code].....

ActionScript 3.0 :: Global Array - Trace That First Element While Trace Is Called Within The Function
I am having issues with a global array. I have an actionscript file called at the same level as my main FLA:


I am able to trace that first element while trace is called within the function... but if I try to trace that first element outside of the function it is "undefined". Do I need to return the array at the end of the function? I tried that but I cant seem to get it working correctly.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Modifiy The Global Trace Function To Output The Current Time Of A Trace Action
I've been playing with prototype a bit and I've noticed that either it isn't as static as it should be or that some functions are protected from altering, or that in some cases the prototype actually extends a function. For example, I was trying to modifiy the global trace function to output the current time of a trace action, something like this :

Code:trace("lulu"); // output 12:48:17.286 lulu I DID achieve something close to it, but it seems that I haven't actually modified the global trace function, but rather it's "_root" counterpart,

ActionScript 3.0 :: Make A Reference To A Movieclip Instance That Is In Another Movieclip?
I am trying to make a reference to a movieclip instance that is in another movieclip.

Here's the deal: I have a main timeline for different pages of a website...then within that I make all of the art on each page into a movieclip so I can do animations every time that main timeline frame is called to, yet still keep my main timeline clean.

Within one page's movieclip I have a few buttons that I want to use to go to other pages by referencing them on the main timeline.I have been using this: (home_about is the about us button on my home page, and frame 31 is on the main timeline).

home_about.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_ClickToGoToAndPlayFromFrame_6);
function fl_ClickToGoToAndPlayFromFrame_6(event:MouseEvent) :void

Since this home_about is within another movieclip,I get the access of undefined property error. Do I need to change the code I've pasted above or add in variable definitions to fix this?

take a look at the results of these traces:

trace(imgGal); //traces "1"
trace(itemClip1._y); //traces "32"
trace(itemClip[imgGal]._y); //traces "undefined"

why does the last trace not trace "32" like the second trace? I want to insert the variable "imgGal" onto the end of the mc "itemClip", how can I do this?

CS3 Play (reference) MovieClip Instance From Within MovieClip
I am trying to create an interactive graphic. Basically, it's three squares layered on top of each other, with a large square in back, a medium square centered in the middle of the large square, and a small square in front centered in the middle of the medium square.

When you roll over the medium square, say, it expands to almost the size of the large square and some text fades in, and the small square on top of it fades away. When you roll off of the medium square, it goes back to it's smaller size, and the small square fades back in.

Currently, I have the actionscript in the movieclip to make the medium square get larger and smaller (and the text fade in), but I need to somehow reference the instance of the small square movieclip to hide it when I roll over the medium movieclip.

My actionscript for the medium square activity, currently:

this.onEnterFrame = function(){
if(rewind == true){


how to have this rolling over action get rid of the small square and then bring it back on roll out.
