Actionscript 3 :: Class Extending Sprite - Set The Sprite's Width And Height Properties?

Mar 5, 2010

I created a class, extended the sprite class, and now in the constructor I am trying to set the Sprite's width and height properties which are inherited from the DisplayObject. However, after I set this.width and this.height, and print the values, I get 0 for both.

What the heck is going on? When I view the livedocs I see that DisplayObject has width and height listed as public properties. I have been able to instantiate a Sprite directly, and set the width and height after it's been instantiated, so I don't get it.

package {
import flash.display.*;
public class ScrollBar extends Sprite {[code].....

Flash :: Rotating Sprite Moves The Sprite From It's Original Location

Jul 6, 2011

I'm doing a simple rotation on a sprite but there's a weird behavior where the sprite does not rotate around it's top left. I think I'm rotating along the top left of the test class instead of the sprite child. I would like to rotate the rectangle around it's top left corner (kinda like a clock hand). The code is pretty short so I'll let the code + pictures explain my problem:

import flash.display.Sprite;


I've read a lot of stuff about rotating around a fixed point, I've tried doing it with movieclips instead of sprites, I even copy pasted a tutorial on rotation and nothing works.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Sprite.addChild(NumericStepper) Resizes Sprite To 100x100

May 27, 2008


Then the numericStepper is drawn as if it is squished to 20% its normal height. If I pre-set mySprite width and height before adding the numericstepper, the trace output is 0,0 after adding it and it is not displayed at all. Is there some way I can make the sprite only adjust to correctly fit the numericStepper OR resize it afterwards without distorting the numericStepper component?

Flash :: Draw Multiple Bitmaps Onto A Single Sprite In Different Locations?

Feb 8, 2011

I have many base images that I need to combine to construct larger images to draw on Sprite objects. I understand that the beginBitmapFill() method of the Graphics class renders a bitmap on a Sprite's graphics object. So I figure that I need to manipulate the BitmapData object, adding the base images to produce a composite image that I can then draw on my Sprite.

My question is: Is there any clean and relatively hassle free way of doing this? Is there a way to draw Bitmaps to certain locations in a Sprites graphics context? Could you copy a Graphics object onto another at certain coordinates and build it that way?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding A RadioButtonGroup To A Sprite?

I'm making a simple quiz.  I dynamically create Sprites and on these Sprites I add dynamically created TextFields which take text from an XML file. The TextFields contain the questions.  Now I want to add a RadioButtonGroup to each Sprite but every time I try to addChild I get the message telling me I cant coerce the RadioButtonGroup into a display object.

Actionscript 3 :: Not Adding Sprite To MovieClip

Sep 22, 2011

My code is simply looping through an xml file and creating 'pages' (which are later animated).

This has all worked fine but now I want to add a sprite over the entire contents of the page if the contents of the xml contain a URL.

At run-time I can see that the checks for the URL are being processed correctly and that the overlay is being generated, but I cannot "see" it on the page.

The following code is located in a for loop for every page in the xml file:

var page:Page = new Page(); //MovieClip in my library
// ... other stuff
var textMC:FadeText = new FadeText(xml); //load the text from the xml fragment for this page


I now believe it is something wrong with the XML. It is correctly parsed XML (otherwise FlashPlayer would throw exceptions in my face) and it appears that this code works on every page except the second. Further more, if the second page is set as visible (a flag in the XML determins if the page is created or not) then none of the other pages overlay works.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding A Border Around A Sprite?

Feb 11, 2010

I want to add a border around my mask. I don't know if I can add the border directly to the mask or if I need to create something new and position it. I imagine if the border was part of the mask it wouldnt show up? Anyway I added lineStyle to my roomMask and I get this error that doesn't make any sense to me:1061: Call to a possibly undefined method lineStyle through a reference with static type flash.display:Sprite.

Flash :: Dynamically Adding Property To Sprite?

Sep 25, 2010

generally, how i work involves designing all of my graphics in Flash Authoring, converting them to Sprite symbols by changing the base class to flash.display.Sprite, give my instances names and finally export them to ActionScript.the approach actually permits me to dynamically create properties in code on my Sprite instances that i've exported to ActionScript, just as if they were instances of MovieClips. i'm not entirely sure why i'm able to do this, but i can. in polling the objects to make sure of their superclass, they are indeed Sprites and not MovieClips.however, as expected, if i program a new sprite from scratch in code and try to dynamically add a property to the new programmed sprite a compile time error will result.

import flash.display.Sprite;

However when I use[ii], A photo is added to each item - Why is this? I need to add _model.selectedPhoto to each s:Sprite

for (var ii:int; ii < 6; ii++)

IDE :: Creating A Sprite, And Adding 100 Instances To The Stage

Jul 16, 2009

I thought would be coded like this:

var sp:Sprite = new Sprite();;, 0, 50);


however, I realize even tho im looping that addChild method, its still adding sp, so do I add a new naming convention in the loop, or should I be adding these instances to another display object.... this seems like such a simple thing to do yet I cant figure it out, I also want to randomize the x and y, but this first seems to be the issue I need to address.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Load Animated Swf On Main Sprite One By One?

Jun 9, 2010

I need to load three swf files in the main sprite (mSprite) top to bottom. All three swfs have some sort of animation, so when the first swf is loaded, it needs to finish playing the animation before the 2nd swf is loaded and the pattern follows. I am assuming, at the end of the animation, each swf need to dispatch a signal or such. All the animations are done via code not timeline.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Scrollbar To Sprite Inside / Outside For Loop?

The thumbnails that are out of the boundary are still visible. On top of that, I tried to add the scrollbar to the sprites inside and outside the for loop, but sadly it doesn't appear. For the height thing, can I set the size of the ULLoader? Or should I just use a mask or something?

ActionScript 3 :: Rendering Text - Adding Label Above Each Sprite

Feb 4, 2011

I'm having a bit of confusion about how to render text in a pure AS3 project. There are classes like flash.text.StaticText but these are designer-only, you can't create them in code. I was half-expecting the Graphics class to have text-rendering options but alas, no. Specifically I was going to add a label above each player's sprite with their name, health %, etc. So I expected to add a child text-element or draw text using Graphics in some way... it's read-only and should not support user-input, I just want to draw text on-screen.

Actionscript 3 :: Drawing - Cut A "hole" Inside A Rectangular Sprite To See The Sprite Underneath?

Feb 3, 2010

Everytime I google this question I see confusing information about masks and blends, none of which seems to directly apply to what I think should be an easy thing... There are three Sprites involved here...the lowest layer sprite is pretty much a background. I want to overlay a translucent Sprite on top of the background and then I want the third, top-most Sprite to act as a hole, so that the area inside the third Sprite is completely transparent, so that the background sprite is completely visible. How would I go about doing this dynamically (i.e. dynamically drawing the masking sprite and hole using the Actionscript graphics calls)?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Get A True Invisible Button That Still Remains Clickable?

Apr 22, 2003

without using alpha 0% in Flash5

this is the problem.

i want to make a button invisible. however, since using alpha 0% will create colordifferences with 16bit colors, I want to use _visible = "0"; (like you would on a MC).

one option is to put a MC inside the button and make that invisible, but obviously you can't without an onClipEvent handler, but if you do so, it doesn't work.

puting the button inside a MC is the second option, and with the _visible command it works... however, it also stops the button from working.

is there a way to get a true invisible button that still remains clickable????
