Actionscript 3 :: Get Element Inside Another Element Just Having It's Id In Dynamically Created String Form?

Mar 18, 2012

I know that there is no such function as getElementByName in Flex but I also now that you can do this["object_id"] to get the element of the application u're in.What about getting an element inside another element?I've tried making element["id"] ? But in my try-catch it always runs the "catch" do I get an element inside another element just having it's id in dynamically created string form?

I have flash where there is a link for song download. And, at the bottom of the flash I've a count, loaded thorugh flash vars which should increment everytime donload button is hit.

May be this extremely confusing. Here is a very similar example on how it is done. This is actually very similar to what i want to do. [URL] on this link there is count below which increments you hit the download button.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Element Is ITooltippable Vs Element['tooltip']

Oct 25, 2010

I've built a rather robust tooltip class recently that attaches and draws a single tooltip sprite to the root, then uses MOUSE_OVER to detect when it is over a tooltippable object, and shows the appropriate tooltip text. At the moment, I'm ensuring that any elements in my application which wants to take advantage of showing tooltips implement the ITooltippable interface, and expose a public getter, get tooltip().

Apr 13, 2006

Basically I have 14 text boxes, each box draws its content from an external txt file. Next to each text box is a button.

Flex :: Scrolling A Spark Form To Focussed Element Programatically?

Aug 5, 2011

I found this example [URL].. which works great but only if you have the focussable elements in a VGroup.

However I have a Form inside the VGroup which means that the focussable elements are in FormItems of the Form. The Form can't be added directly into the Scroller and doesn't have a layout property.

I could use form.getElementIndex(formItem) and then do some math using the formItem y position but that's very ugly. Anyone have an idea how to get this working in a clean way like the above example?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Compare Array's Element (xml Reference) With String?

Jan 22, 2010

I need to compare a number with a element in a Array(curModeDisplay), I can trace the element and see it without problem. But when I try to compare the inside element with a String, it didn't work. Why?

ActionScript Code:
curModeDisplay = new Array();  \this is the Array I need
for (var tvM:XMLNode = tv.firstChild; tvM!=null; tvM=tvM.nextSibling){
curModeDisplay.push(tvM.childNodes); \received element fine here
trace(curModeDisplay);  \ This works fine. Array displays correctly

When I need those elements from the Array(curModeDisplay) and try to make some comparison work, it did not work:

ActionScript Code:
function DigitCompare():Void{
for(var index in curModeDisplay){
if(curModeDisplay[index]=="11265"){ //it seems didn't work here


Is that because the element in the Array is reference to the XML node, and "11265" is String. If so, how should I fix this problem. The "11265" will be changed to any named String type variable in the future.

Flash :: Javascript Element Inside Href

Aug 16, 2011

Using the following code:[code]Triggering play() and stop() works as expected, however the href doesn't do much, as the click event is sent to the flashplayer, and not following the hyperlink.I have several such flashplayers on the page, and I'm trying to find a way to 'activate' the href onClick and honor the url specified in the <a href=""> construct. Specifically, it's in IE8 I'm struggling.How can I do this using html/javascript?After having come across javascript onclick event over flash object I managed to get closer to what I'm after. Using the onmousedown event, I can trigger javascript when clicking my overlay div. What's a good generic way to read the parent href url and issue location.href='/myparenturl';" style="cursor: pointer; ?

ActionScript 2.0 :: When You Need More Values Inside Each Element, It Gets Difficult To Maintain?

This is pretty simple, but when you need more values inside each element, it gets difficult to maintain.I know I could probably do this using XML, but I'm trying to learn all about arrays

Professional :: Query String Variable Based On Coldfusion Template Body Element Id

Jan 25, 2010

I'm using a Coldfusion Dreamweaver template with cfinclude tags.  The header contains a flash movie where I'd like to pass 2 variables via a query string to load the correct image and menu button based on the variables in the ActionScript.
Example:  <param name="movie" value="flash/header_v8.swf?pic=1&button=1" />
pic variable can be 1 - 3 and button variable can be 1 - 7  depending on the each pages body element id.  So the logic would be something like this for my flash movie:
if body id =home, then pic=1 and button=1
if body id =about, then pic=current variable and button=2
if body id =page3, then pic=1 variable and button=3

What's the best way to pass these variables depending on the current page body element id?

Actionscript 3 :: Propagate Custom Event To Parent Swf From Element Inside Child Swf

Jul 19, 2011

I have two swf file, A.swf and B.swf, each with its Document Class: B.swf is loaded in a MovieClip of A.swf. When loaded, B.swf creates an instance of CSDragger (it is a library object with its class extending MovieClip) and sets an ID property of this instance to a certain value. When this dragger is dropped by the user upon a MovieClip it sends a custom event containing the value of ID too. The custom event regularly reaches B.swf but never reaches A.swf. Aside from refactoring the CSDragger class (eg moving its handleDrop method in the B.swf document class), is there any way for the event to reach A.swf? I know I can intercept it and dispatch another event, but I was looking for a different solution (if any).[code]

Actionscript 3 :: Spark - Manually Scrolling A Element Wrapped Inside A Scroller Window

Jun 21, 2011

The answer to my question is possibly easy, yet I haven't found an example of solving it in the web, nor have I found a solution reading ActionScript reference. My problem is the following: I have a big UIComponent derivate element inside a Scroller (spark.components.Scroller) window. The Scroller class is great because when my canvas element, that changes size dynamically, exceeds its boundaries, scrollbars appear automatically and handle scrolling of my UIComponent inside it. However, I'd like not just to be able to Scroll using these automatically appeared scroll bars, but also by using a pan tool that I will myself implement (similar to the hand tool in Adobe software, for example). The thing is that I am not able to modify correctly the element's position inside the Scroller window.

I tried, as a first approach, accessing to my elements' 'x' and 'y' properties, however, when changing them, I dont get the resulkts wanted. The code for it is the following (in which, for symplifying reasons, I used a text label as my 'inside' element, and two buttons as an external scroll controller, instead of a hand tool)

Flash :: CreateEmptyMovieClip Inside Another Dynamically Created MovieClip?

Apr 1, 2012

I'm trying to create a movieclip and load a "frame" image inside of it, then create another movieclip inside of the first, and then load another picture inside of the second. Something like this:

var thumbFrame;
var thumbPicture;
thumbFrame = container_mc.createEmptyMovieClip(thumbFrameName, 1);[code]..........

But it doesn't seem to work the way I want: the "thumbPicture" doesn't appear on top of the "thumbFrame" as I expected... only the "thumbFrame" shows (with it's image succesfully loaded). Am I missing something?

EDIT: If I comment this: //thumbFrame.loadMovie("thumbFrame.png");

The thumbPicture.jpg shows inside of the first movieclip, so maybe the issue is with the .loadMovie?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Accessing A Property Of An Instance Inside A Dynamically Created MC

Sep 17, 2009

Im dynamically creating an instance of a movieclip, call it a game piece. This game piece has 4 frames, each with a movieclip called base(although one is red, one blue, one green, one yellow). When the game piece is created I set the frame to indicate player color. Im also changing the alpha of base to 1.0 when its being dragged, 0.5 when its dropped.

Using the following code, everything works fine if the game piece color is set to the base in frame 1 (red). If the game piece is created and the timeline moved to a frame other than 1, I throw an error when trying to access base.alpha (this would be the second, third, and fourth instances of base in the game piece timeline). Heres the strange part, this is only a problem when the game piece is first created and added to the display list. Once created, even after the error has been thrown, I can access the alpha of bases 2, 3, and 4 in the drag start/stop listeners. Heres a link to the work in progress, and the relevant sections of code (shortened for brevity, t1 is the top left piece on the pallet, others just repeat the same code):[URL]
