Flash - Tile Objects In Grid AS3

Apr 8, 2011

I want to put an array of objects into a grid. I know the code is simple but somehow I'm not getting what I want.

const PADDING:Number = 10:
const COL:Number = Math.floor(Math.sqrt(tiles.length);
const ROW:Number = Math.floor(Math.sqrt(tiles.length);
for(var i:int = 0; i< COL; i++) {
var tile:TileSprite = tiles[i];
tile.x = i * tile.width + PADDING;
for(var j:int = 0; j < ROW; j++) {
tile.y = j * tile.height + PADDING;

- The array is declared else where as a public variable
- This is to be part of a game engine I'm building so I want it as flexible as possible
- The tiles as reading their properties for an XML file. But I don't want to use the XML to hard code the tiles' positions.

Arrays :: Flash - Arranging Objects In A Vector Into A Grid

Jan 21, 2012

I want to arrange certain objects from a vector/array into a gird

Currently, I know how to do this during the creation of the objects.

Here's the grid function I've created:

function ArrangeInGrid(uiRow:uint, uiCol:uint, iOffsetX:int, iOffsetY:int):void
for(var i:uint = 0; i < uiRow; ++i)


Now I want to be able to apply the same logic of arranging objects in an array/vector in to a grid, how do I do it?

Or suggest a more efficient way to do so (if you have).


I want it to be flexible in how many rows and columns the grid can have. The vector I'm using already has the cards in it. I can't just push the cards into the vector cuz of the way I manually created my cards.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Check The Existance Of Another Tile To The Left, Right, Or Above And Below, Otherwise The Tile Should Not Be Placed?

Apr 19, 2011

I'm making a game where you place tiles on a grid. When placing a tile, I need to check the existance of another tile to the left, right, or above and below, otherwise the tile should not be placed.. Here is a function I thought would work, that accepts one variable (the position of the tile just as it is about to be placed) :-
private function checkSurroundingTiles(gridPosition:uint) {                 var t1 = gridPosition - 12;     var t2 = gridPosition - 1;     var t3 = gridPosition + 1;     var t4 = gridPosition + 12;                 for(i = 0; i < gridRefArray.length; i++) {          var checkTile = gridRefArray[i];                          if(checkTile == t1) {               return true;

Flash :: Flex Data Grid: Check Whether Item Renderer Displays Last Row In Grid

Feb 3, 2012

I'm currently working with the OLAPDataGrid component and got stuck at a relatively simple task: I want to style the last row of the grid differently from the rest, so my cell item renderer needs to know whether he's rendering the last row with content in the overall grid, including those rows currently not rendered because they are outside the visible grid space. AdvancedGridListData's rowIndex property only gets me the row index of the renderer relative to the range of visible grid rows, i.e. when I scroll down the grid, a data item with an index greater than 0 gets the rpw index = 0.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating A Large Grid Matrix Of Interactive Objects?

Nov 7, 2009

I am working on a project where I need an interactive matrix of 500x500 clickable lements. I thought this would be an easy task in actionscript3 but boy was I wrong. was able to create a matrix where each element was a Sprite object with attached Mouse click event. But here the performance problems begin. FlashPlayer10 can handle up to 100x100 matrix, but when I increase my matrix I start getting script timeout in browser player... Here is how my "unfinished" matrix looks like.

So how should I approach this problem? I was hoping flash will be able to handle so many elements, but I guess I was wrong. I want to have a pan control to pan around for objects off screen and of course zoom in/out control.It's true I'm not very professional in Flahs and actionscript but a friend who is told me this would be no problem implementing in AS3? I need this in flash as the thing needs to be hosted on website (unless there is a better tool for doing something like this...).

Flash - Tile Image / MovieClip Along A Line Using AS3

Nov 15, 2009

If possible I would like to tile an image or MovieClip along a line using the standard moveTo() and lineTo() methods, The lines are directional so need to show something similar to >>>>>>>>>>>>>. The lines can be at any angle, so using drawRect() with beginBitmapFill() isn't an option. Also if possible I would like to have the lines animated. Is this possible or will it require a custom class?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Grid Thumbnail With Dynamic Grid Lists

I really like the thumbnail gallery for its simplicity and beauty. But I would like to ad or vertical scroller (I'm unable to find it here too, maybe I'm blind, just I'm more at the end of my seeking options) or a make a grid thumbnails, that will show 2 columns of thumbs and 5 pictures in each columns, then under the 2 columns i would like to ad a sort of arrow or button that if my gallery have more then 10 pictures it will go on the next thumbnail list. I'm not looking for any extra fading effects or special movements. Just would love to have a single thumbnail grid on side, with option to have lists of thumbnails by 10 if there is more then 10 pictures or so.

Flash :: Optimal Referential 2d Array - Determine What Tile Is At A Location?

May 20, 2011

So, I'm creating a fairly basic overhead 2d game where users can "draw" a map. (Actually, they dont draw it, the manually input a list of x/y's, but the design aspect isnt important just now.) When a new tile is added, that tile goes into an array of all tiles ingame. The centrepoint is 0,0. Tiles can be added in all directions, so may be at 1,1 or 100,100 or -50,-50. Sometimes I want to determine what tile is at a location. One (imho bad) way of doing this would be to get the x/y and loop through all tiles and check if they are that location.

The way I'm currently doing it is to have a seperate 2d array of null elements, and when a tile is added, its set at that array. (ie tilemap[10][10] = tile[100]) Of course, because the values can go negative, tilemap [0][0] is actually the -1000/-1000 tile. (chosen as an arbitrary limit) Is there a better way of doing this? I feel like using a massive array of mostly empty objects could be more optimal.

Flex :: Objects Drawn By Flash Graphics Class Exist As Objects?

Internally Flash obviously keeps a list of the primitives drawn using Graphics so I wondered if you have many such primitives in a Sprite, can you re-position/remove/alter individual items rather than clear and re-draw everything? Or is this deeper into the bowels of Flash than you're allowed (or recommended) to go?
