ActionScript 2.0 :: Button To Control UIScrollbar Scrolling?

Aug 17, 2010

I am using Flash CS3 and Action Script 2.0 I have created a test file. See Attached

I am looking for AS to control a scrollbar with a button. Jump to headline location.

First, I have 3 buttons. Red, Blue and Yellow. Second, I have a scrollbar window with text in it. The scrollbar moves to any part of the text. The first paragraph is for the Red text, the second for the Blue text and third is Yellow text.

When you click on the "Red" button the scrollbar should move to the RED TEXT headline. When you click on the "Blue" button it should move to the BLUE TEXT headline. And the same for the Yellow.

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?

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

I'm cruising through the Classroom in a Book series for ActionScript 3.0 and I'm having problems with the uiscrollbar attaching to a text field. I've used them before, but this time when I drag it over to the text field it keeps jumpimg to the outside of the box instead of attaching and I can't seem to get in inside the box unless I manually change the X and Y settings and force it where I want it to be.

Create Scrolling Text Areas With Rich Text Format Content?

May 14, 2009

Noob question, I hope. I need to create scrolling text areas with rich text format content. I know I can use the textArea component and set the htmlText property but converting all of my RTF to HTML is gonna be a major pain in the @$$. I keep getting into trouble thinking what's mindlessly easy in Director/Lingo is gonna be reasonably simple in Flash/AS3, I hoping this is just my inexperience with Flash getting in the way. Is there an easier way? I thought of embedding a PDF document but apparently that's not an option in Flash either (note: I know how to link a PDF doc, I need this text to display and scroll within the application, not just pop a new window on top).

Scrolling Images With Dynamic Text Box?

Mar 17, 2009

My boss wanted me to make scrolling images and captions for each image when you rollover them. I made the images scroll by making each image a button and masking those images. I can't seem to get the captions right though.The dynamic text box I am using is inside the mask (because I cannot figure out how to put it on the main time line and make it work). The rollovers work when the dynamic text box is in the mask, but when I scroll through the images, the text scrolls too and some of the captions you cannot even see. The web site is below if you need to see what I am talking about.http:[url].......

I figured that what I need to do is put the dynamic text box on the main time line and not in the mask. But I can't seem to get that to work.Here is the code I am putting on the actual image buttons. My text box instance name is rOver and yes, I did embed the fonts.

on (rollOver) {
rOver.text ="caption";

I'm using Flash MX 2004. So far I've created the text - it comes on from the right and leaves on the left. The problem I've got however is how to make this a continuous, seamless loop. When it goes off on the left I can't figure out how to make it come back on from the right.
