Actionscript 3 - Creating A Custom Progress Bar In Flash?

Oct 25, 2010

I need a progress bar that's kind of in an odd shape, I've attached an image. It's not a preloader; it's for periodic progress while the user is performing other action on the website. I've played and played with tweens from a symbol of a fill of the bar to no avail. I'm not great at flash, so apparently even this simple thing is a stumbling block for me. Since it's an odd shape,I was hoping I could somehow use a paint bucket fill of the symbol or something like that to create "progress", and simply send a "stop" command when it's at the appropriate level, but I've tried several different ways and just don't have the ability to do it. I can't seem to find anything online that's even close either.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating A Preloader And Progress Bar?

Jan 8, 2010

the image I load using the tutorial loads really fast (it's only 240kb) which basically means that the progress bar just blinks and completes so fast that people who don't know what's going on won't know what just blinked.

My question therefore is this:Is it possible to tell the preloader, that even if the image is already loaded, the progress bar will take for example 2 seconds to complete?

That way people with fast connections will see the preloader for 2 seconds and people with slower connections will see the preloader for whatever time it takes to load the image.

Here's the code from the tutorial:

var imageLoader:Loader;
function loadImage(url:String):void {
// Show Preloader
preloader_projekt1.visible = true;

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating A Sprite And Linking A Progress Bar With It?

Apr 5, 2010

I am writing a small app, and the very first thing I do is to create a sprite called "mainSprite" on Stage. This way, whatever I need to lood, I load it into the "mainSprite" NOT directory on to the stage. Now I would like to connect a progress bar to this "mainSprite" so whenever an asset is loaded, progress bar would pop in and show the progress. I would like to know if I am on right track with what I am trying to achieve, and if I am right, then how can I employ a progress component to just listen to "mainSprite".

ActionScript 2.0 :: Creating A Percentage Progress Bar, With Day Change?

Apr 1, 2012

I have a project portal for software development. To show my team, how far we are in development, i created a graphic showing a progress bar, and a percentage number.

Every now an then, i open flash, and change the percentage number, and scales the progress bar a bit.

My question here is:

Can i make the Percentage number change from (currently) 22% to 100% (22, 23, 24 etc), over the duration of 30 days? So it automatically changes 2-3 times a day?

Can i also make a progress bar that scales automatically, and slowly becomes longer and longer, to match the Percentage number?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Custom Preloader Delays Displaying Preloading Progress

Jul 15, 2011

My project Home Page contains several 'heavy' instances on stage. So as to entertain a visitor while all they are loading I start preloading transition. However despite all my efforts my custom preloader delays displaying preloading progress for a while: althoug preloader wheel rotates, progress value displays as 0% for several seconds - from 1-3 seconds in normal browsers up to 5-6 seconds in Safari (which I consider to be worst one for Flash). if someone could clarify me whether I should listen for ALL the children loading progress so as to fix this issue or just never mind (e.g. every button on stage consists of two VideoPlayers, one TLFTextField, one Timer, two Sprites and one attached sound; now I'm listening for two VideoPlayers loading progress only...)

Flash :: Creating A Custom File Format For Adobe Air?

Feb 16, 2010

I'm just starting out with my first Adobe Air project (I'm a pure AS3 developer by trade).I'm planning to build an image editor which supports layers. I'm wondering what the best way would be to store an entire project including layer data (images) to a users hard disk.I'm wondering if there is any pros/cons in creating a custom file format for my application. The idea is I will be able to store an entire project in a single file. This will be done by writing meta data to the file's header such as the image dimensions, layer names, layer data offsets etc...I'm trying to be mindful of the issues which might arrise such as maintaining backwards compatibility after adding new project features/meta etc.I guess I'm asking whether people have any advice or experience with creating a custom file format for Adobe Air and if there are any other 'out-of-the-box' solutions to saving 'complex' data to a users hard disk.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Creating And Having Flash Find Custom Packages?

Jun 14, 2010

I'm just getting off the ground as an AS3 programmer and I'm having a lot of trouble getting Flash to recognize my packages. My intention is to keep a code library of all my AS3 source data and have Flash simply go fetch classes from there.

I have set Flash's source path to the following to accommodate my library:

C:Documents and Settings<username>My DocumentsMy DropboxCodeAS3src

However, when I attempt to include a class into a .fla, Flash gives me an error that it can't find the AS class files in the .fla's folder at compile time. So it seems to not be detecting the AS class files in the source path I have set.

Within src, the folders are structured as follows:

srcsivyrmap<AS classes here>

In my AS files themselves, I have written the package and class declarations as follows:

package {
// Includes
include "flash.display.Sprite"


And when I write an include to grab one of these classes, I write it as:

include ""

Actionscript 3 :: Creating A Custom, Dynamic Flash Button That Will Work In Facebook Shares

Jan 17, 2011

I've had an issue with using Facebook's Share feature.

The user experience on the shared content below is just completely unclear (even when I tested some clarified language: e.g. "click here"). Users simply don't know what to do: they often either click "Like," or they comment with something along the lines of "I support you."

According to the documentation, it is possible to share Flash content in these posts. I'm hoping I can create a "Support" button as an SWF button.

Is it possible to dynamically create such an SWF with a custom *href? Will my use case work on Facebook?

Create A Progress Bar (248px Wide) With A Slider That Moves According To The Movie Progress

Jun 4, 2010

I have an SWF movie (1375 frames) and created a progress bar (248px wide) with a slider that moves according to the movie progress. I'm doing that next way:Calculating the distance for the slider to be moved each frame (248 / 1375) On each ENTER_FRAME moving the slider for the calculated distance The problem is - the movie ends far before the slider reaches the end of the progress bar.

I'm thinking that the distance (Step 1) is is somehow ends floored by Flash and the actual distance it moves the slider is smaller than required. That's why the movie ends, but the timeline control just passed the 2/3 of its way. My question is - is there any solution for the problem? Or any other way to go, if it's a wrong one?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating A Custom Component?

Jun 3, 2009

I am creating a custom Component using ActionScript 3. This Component have some properties that can be changed in the Component Inspector, and in this component i create a text field to show a message that the user define in this panel.
So far, works ok. But i want to give a chance to the user choose a font type to this text field, i found in the Component Definition, a option called "Font Name", with this option, you can select a type of font to use.
The problem is to recover this font in my Class of the component. I try to use the Font Class, but it seems that this class was not created for this. My question is: What Class i have to use to recover the selected font from the Font Name option. I try this:
var newFont:Font = "Arial";
[Inspectable(name="Font name", type = Font, defaultValue = "Arial")]  public function set corPreloader(fonte:Font) {   newFont = fonte;  }  public function get corPreloader():uint {   return newFont;  }

Flex :: Creating A Custom List Component

Jan 10, 2011

I'm trying to extend the mx:Box container so that two buttons sit on the outside of the container to cycle through it's contents (similar to a scrollbar).

I've made a custom component that looks basically
like "mx:HBox->mx:Button mx:Box mx:Button" where the buttons and box are children of the hbox.

How do I offer the user access to the box (say its dataProvider and itemRenderer) through my custom component?

So they just need to write 'local:MyCustomComponent dataProvider="rar" itemRenderer="rar"/>' and my box inside that component can use it?
