Can't Successfully Publish Movie?

Nov 28, 2009

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?

Oct 20, 2011

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?

Mar 21, 2007

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?

May 21, 2010

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 2.0 :: Modifiy The Global Trace Function To Output The Current Time Of A Trace Action

Nov 9, 2011

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?

Jul 17, 2011

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?

CS3 Play (reference) MovieClip Instance From Within MovieClip

May 20, 2009

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.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Objects - XML - Creating A New Instance Of An Object That Uses An Identical Name To An Older Instance Delete The Previous Instance?

Mar 20, 2009

Does creating a new instance of an Object that uses an identical name to an older instance, delete the previous instance? Or should the original instance be deleted first? The code uses a ridiculous amount of XML vars. Isn't it less memory intensive to parse the XML and save the properties to an Object, and then delete the XML Object, rather than keep the XML Object around and reference it's child nodes directly? Is it better form to break up a huge XML file (>600lines/3200vars) into smaller chunks?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Getting Movieclip Instance Names?

Feb 23, 2010

I am trying to get the instance name that i gave to a dynamically created movieclip the movieclip was created using var zebra_mc:Zebra = new Zebra(); //creating a new instance of the zebra class The movieclip was then added to the stage using a for loop, as it was contained in an array. Each time a movieclip is added to the stage it is then added to another array (existingObjects) I then need to iterate through this array and pull out each objects names. I have tried using existingObjects[i].name, which returns "instance140" and existingObjects[i].toString, which returns functionFunction(){}, very useful. and existingObjects[i] which just returns the object.

ActionScript 3.0 :: One Movieclip Instance As Value For Several Variables?

May 28, 2010

It seems that my code is problematic, because I assign one instance of a MovieClip to several variables, type MovieClip. The behaviour of others of my codes makes me think, that ActionScript does not make copies of the instance, but references all variables to this single instance. This behaviour now causes trouble.The solution I consider now, is to create copies of the MovieClip and assign them to my variables. Is there any code to copy a MovieClip?
