Displaying Text As HTML In The UIscrollbar Component

Sep 9, 2009

I have a window on my Flash stage that has some scrollable copy in it.  The problem is, I can't seem to have any formatting for the text ... if I select a word or two to make bold, it all turns bold.  I gather I need to use the "Display Text as HTML" checkbox and then paste in some HTML formatted text but this doesn't seem to work.  I searched this forum and found that others were designating "htmlText" in Actionscript instead of just "text" ... that didn't work either.  I probably just did it wrong, or maybe it's becuase I'm using the UI component "UIscrollBar" for it's scrolling of the text.

Is there anything else I need to do to be able to format some text with strong tags and maybe some href links?
I have my properties inspector with the following check marks:

Display as HTML
Dynamic Text

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Html-enabled Textfield And The Uiscrollbar Component?

Oct 4, 2008

I am having some trouble with a dynamic html-enabled textfield and the uiscrollbar component. I created a dynamic textfield on the stage, named it "mytext". Enable it for HTML and make it multiline. I added this action: mytext.htmlText="test<BR><BR>test<BR><BR>test" The html shows up just fine. I add a uiscrollbar to it. It is definitely targeted for "mytext". Now when I test it I get: _level0.mytext in the textbox instead. When I trace mytext.htmlText, I get the correct HTML but it just doesn't show up. When I shorten my content so that the UIscrollbar isn't necessary, the HTML is again displayed correctly. Now if I update the code to say instead:

ActionScript 3.0 :: TextField And TextArea Component Are Very Limited In Displaying And Formatting HTML Pages

Mar 25, 2009

i'm working on a game project and i got some trouble with displaying stuff in the game Launcher. everything is in AS3. I'm actually looking to achieve almost the same results as the World of Warcraft launcher with a news section. the way i think to work it is that i create either a textArea component or a textfield and display html page in it. This html page could contain text, image and flash SWF.

but here's the problem, textField and textArea component are very limited in displaying and formating HTML pages. So i don't know if i should continue to search and try developping this way or find another way for displaying dynamic stuff that can be easily updated.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Displaying XML Text As HTML?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm loading text into a text field from an XML file. I'm creating a very simple CMS for someone's website and, if they put in a link I want it to show up on the site. I remember, years ago, being able to simply display XML as HTML, so when inserting.
HTML Code:
<a href="#">A Link</a>
into mytextfield.text, an html-esque link would actually show up in the .swf. Of course now I can't find it anywhere.

Java :: Component For Displaying (>25MB) Text File In FLEX

Feb 6, 2012

Flex front-end using AMF to Java back. Trying to read, in real-time, a file that is being written to. For example, a log. I'm using Java's RandomAccessFile class to read the "new" lines of the file and send them back to the UI as a byte array along with the byte offset to start reading from next time. Using an mx:List to display all lines of the text file. The problem I'm running into, is Flex, or Flash Player, running out of memory on mildly large files, >25MB. Is there any preferred method of displaying large amounts of text data in Flex that I'm missing? Or does Flex/Flash just handle this poorly and I'm basically screwed?

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 UIScrollBar Component And Scrollbox

Jun 7, 2009

The component itself works perfectly. I can create a scrollbox and the scrollbar and everything works perfectly..except that it somehow partially disables my other codes. I'm trying to create a small database in flash where I can store stuff and to quickly find what I'm looking for I made a Input Text field and added a code so that you could search for a keyframe label and then it would jump to that keyframe.The scrollbox disables the search function, although only partially! The button with the search code looks like this:[code]which means the scrollbar component somehow disables the Enter button! Weird. I know I should be content with at least the clicking working, but I'd really love to have a search where you can just simply press Enter for it to go to that keyframe.

Well, the problem didn't end there.When I try to delete the scrollbar and everything that made the search stop working, the enter button still won't work, even when I deleted all the faulty keyframes where I added the scrollbars! So I have to begin again from scratch to make it work.A scrollbox would really help me get more text into a keyframe, so I'd love to have it there. If someone can help me get this work, I'd be happy.I tried creating my own scrollbar. It works great, too, and it doesn't disable the search code. The problem is, that I made the scrollbox into a movie clip, and I need many scrollboxes with different texts, and I'd really hate to create a new scrollbox from scratch each time I need one with different text. Plus, I'll probably need 100+ scrollboxes so it'd take a while to make that many.Anyone know how you can duplicate a movie clip and then edit the duplicate without the original being edited? That annoys the hell out of me and I'd really love to be able to just duplicate my self-made scrollbox and edit the text on each one, because right now when I edit the text on the duplicate box it also edits it on the original one :/

UIScrollBar Component Not Loading Correctly

May 23, 2009

I have a website I created in Flash (CS4 AS2), and on one page, I have a UIScrollBar component. It is linked to a text box, which loads text from an external .txt file. The page has a short pre-loader that plays while the page is loading; the page is not supposed to be shown until it's 100% loaded.

My problem is that when the page loads, the text is there, and there is a box where the scroll bar should go, but no scroll bar. The mouse wheel makes the page scroll as it should, but the bar itself is not visible or functional. If I navagate away and then return to the page, or reload the page, the bar displays as it should.

ActionScript 2.0 :: UIScrollBar Component And Keypress Event

Aug 23, 2006

I have a chat swf with one dynamic textfield that shows the typed text and one input textfield with an "ok" button. I'm using this code on the button:
on(release, keypress "enter") { //do something}

With this code after the typing, the user could just press the "enter" key to transfer the typed text to the dynamic textfield of the chat. It was everything working perfectly, the problem showed up when I added the UiScrollBar component to scroll the dynamic textfield. When I add the UiScrollBar to the library, the keypress "enter" event on the button stop working! If I delete the UiScrollBar component, keypress event start working again!

Professional :: Attaching Flash UIScrollbar Component To MovieClip

I'm attempting to attach Flash's UIScrollbar component to a movie clip so I can scroll graphics, pdf links and a series of flv files. I know how to attach the scrollbar to a dynamic text field (drag and drop) and have tried similar processes with the mc but no luck. I feel like it's not as simple as "drag and drop" and that the mc itself needs to have it's x and y's defined and then have script associated (note I'm using as3).

ActionScript 1/2 :: Using An XML File To Add Text Into A TextArea Component Set As Html?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm using AS2 in Flash CS3.I have a TextArea component in the stage that's loading its text from an XML and I've been able to use the ul and li tags to create lists. However, when I try to include a nested list it just inserts a line break between the nested list and the main list rather than indent it further. Is there a solution for this issue?Failing that, how would I be able to add non-breaking spaces into the XML so they will render inside the TextArea component? I've tried   and   without success. I scoured the net for some help with this and found some information about modifying the font embedding xml file with a new entry for the non-breaking space and that didn't work either, so that leaves me somewhat stumped.

ActionScript 3.0 :: UIScrollbar Doesn't Scroll Through All The Text?

Sep 22, 2008

I have a small-ish text field with a decent amount oftext in it which must be scrolled through to view it all. I'veadded a UIScrollBar component (using AS3), and it shows up fine andscrolls the text fine, but it doesn't scroll all the way down tothe bottom of the text, just a little ways into it. If I use mymouse wheel and scroll the text that way, then scroll bar positionindicator suddenly shrinks and then I can use the scroll bar clearto the end of the text. But if I don't use the mouse wheel to dothis, I can't use the scroll bar to get to the end of the text.I've tried using the update() method of the scroll bar afterfilling the text field with it's content and attaching theUIScrollBar component to it. What am I missing here so that I canuse the scroll bar to scroll all the way down through the textinstead of just a little ways?

Even then it doesn't work correctly.
