ActionScript 3.0 :: Flex Load Image At Runtime

I'm allowing the user to choose some image and load it at runtime.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Load In SWCs At Runtime?

Jan 6, 2011

Beginners Intro to SWC files SWCs are ZIP archives with two files in them: catalog.xml - Lists all classes contained in the SWC along with their dependencies.library.swf - Contains all the actual classes So theoretically... It should be possible to load in SWC files at run time and use the classes from them, right?

You may have to unzip it first and extract out the SWF, but this arduous process could be made easier with a few helper classes. In fact, having the "catalog.xml" there may also make it easier to identify which classes are contained within (which means you don't need to guess or assume which classes are in it). Has anyone tried this yet or know of anyone else who has?

I searched Google for a bit, but most results actually were actually mislabeled, and loading the SWC in at compile time. I found nothing relevant, so asking here is much easier.

Actionscript :: Load External Image And Assign To A Symbol In Flash

Nov 22, 2011

I have a SWF file used as a banner advertisement but there is a 35kb size limit. My file is just under 60kb, and I won't be able to optimize the images any further. (An early version can be found here:URL...)I was thinking perhaps I could load 2 of my images dynamically?I actually try to stay away from Flash and Actionscript, but had to use it for this advertisement. The animation is built with transitions and symbols in the timeline. That being said I know just enough actionscript to control the timeline / playback but not how to dynaimcally load images, then assign those images to the symbols I use in my animations.Could someone hold my hand for about 5 minutes and give me the dummy 101 on how to dynamically load an image that a symbol will reference?Not a permanent solution, but I discovered that I can make a simple pre-loader swf that has the background, and load the real swf using this simple actionscript code:[code]

Flex :: Localization And Resource Modules - Runtime Errors - Unable To Load Resource Module From Portal?

Jan 20, 2011

I've created an application that includes a number of Modules and uses Parsley framework. Ant is used to build the application.Recently I thought of using Resource Bundles and implemented it in the system by creating a locale/en_US folder under the src. I added a file with all my strings defined.In my modules, I added the metadata


In the ant build file, I added the below lines within mxmlc.

<source-path path-element="${}/{locale}"/>

The build works fine and when I deploy the application and open it in my browser, I'm greeted with many errors thrown by the Flash player.But if I dismiss the messages, its working fine. My strings are replaced with the values in the property file, but how do I stop the runtime errors being thrown up?I get the below error.

Difference Between The Flash Player Runtime And Adobe AIR Runtime?

Nov 16, 2009

I've been into coding for about 5 years now, but I'm a recent convert to Flash development. One of the questions I have at the moment is, considering that SWF files can be run by either Adobe Flash Player OR Adobe AIR, what's the real difference between the two runtime environments? What API's and Objects exist in one environment, but not the other?

Basically what I'm more or less trying to establish is, when would I want to develop an SWF for AIR, and when would I want to develop for Flash Player, considering that Flash Player can also execute locally (providing support for creating "desktop applications")

Flash :: Change Visibility Of Symbol Instance From Inside Another Symbol's Script

To put it another way, I need "object" to be hidden when "background" reaches a certain internal keyframe. However, as "object" and "background" are both children of the same stage, how do I do this?

Flex :: SWF Assets Loaded Into Flash SWF At Runtime Within Same ApplicationDomain

Dec 1, 2009

I'm trying to load a swf compiled by the Flex SDK into a swf exported by the Flash IDE and instantiate the assets by way of getDefinition(). Normally this works fine with assets exported from the Flash IDE then loaded into another swf also from Flash IDE.This is how I could normally do this using only the Flash IDE:Loader - > Using same ApplicationDomain - > getDefinition(class)Now, using the '' compiled from Flex SDK using the [Embed] metadata tag:Loader - > Using same ApplicationDomain - > getDefinition("Test_" + class)The problem is I'd rather not have to keep track of the asset libraries loaded to prefix the class name I'd like to get (('Test_" + class) vs (class)). Is there any way of doing this without referencing the library the class is being pulled from or without accessing the original loader? This way I don't need to know which swf the asset is coming from, just the class name that I could instantiate from the current ApplicaitonDomain.

Flex :: Flash Builder 4 Design View Vs Flash Runtime Appearance W/SDK 4.1?

Jan 22, 2011

Flash Builder's design view is worse than 3's (which at least was usable if you ignore some quirks), so WHAT do Flex UI designers (those who don't have paid design teams...) do to design a complex UI? Because Design View (also based on what a lot of people say about it..) gets more useless with every release.See image for some differences in design view vs.Flash. WHAT is causing this? css also posted..("Duration", "hr", "min" are mx Labels, the image size text is an mx Text comp.Project is an "mx only" SDK 4.1 project.) I don't even care that the spinners look different, I just need it to show me correctly sized stuff so I can position things via Canvas, or properly size containers.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flex / Flash Runtime Disparity In Interactive Behavior?

Mar 4, 2010

I have this function that fires upon clicks in a particular area of a component I've created:

PHP Code:

private function dispatchDragEvent(e:MouseEvent):void
switch (_targetType)


For some reason when I test this in Flash it works fine, all traces come through. But in Flex, SDK3.5, when I run debug if _targetType is "assign" everything is fine, but if it is "correlate" that branch of the code fails at the hitTest conditionals. It will trace "should execute one of these", but then nothing else happens. So it's like for some reason Flash is OK with the conditional code, but Flex is not cool with it, and doesn't report anything as to why...

Flex :: Swapping Movieclips With Other Assets At Runtime In A Flash Component

Sep 2, 2011

I have an animated character swc that is an empty skeleton basically (has all the body parts, animations, and functions/vars). I want to essentially put different clothes on that character at runtime so I don't have to have many copies of this character in my resources.

For example, I have 'skeleton' (the non-clothed model) and 'Bob', 'Jane', and 'Mary' characters. 'skeleton' is animated and fully works as an exported swc, and to get the other characters in their clothes/skins, I open up Flash CS5 and replace the movie clips with the 'clothed' versions of the components. To clarify,'skeleton' has "body parts" as movie clips that are all animated on the timeline, such as "head","face","left arm","right arm", etc. I open up 'Bob', who has the same exact design as 'skeleton', with the exception that 'Bob' has all the clothes and such as differently-designed movie clips. The size, shape, orientation, and reg points are all the same across all the components. After I've replaced all the movie clips in 'skeleton', I export it as a swc named 'Bob.swc' and I do this for all the characters.

What I'm asking is, how can I do this process ^, but at runtime instead, so I don't have all these duplicate root swcs ('skeleton' has a lot of frames on it) so I can cut down on a bunch of space? So I can do something like:

// bob gets all the actions and animations of skeleton
var bob:UIMovieClip = new skeleton()
// replace the body movieclip with a new looking one
bob.body = resources.bodyassets['bob']['body']

ActionScript 2.0 :: How To Load Buttons At Runtime

Nov 30, 2006

I'd like to learn the correct way to design flash sites in the direction of the Kirupa tutorial found here:Although that's a hellava lot more complicated than what I'm doing now, I see the point of minimizing the layers in my movies as much as possible.So, I've begun using attachMovie to load my movies to the stage at runtime. This has dramatically reduced the layers I had in my main movie. Now, the site has just two layers: one for actions and the other for invisible buttons. The invisible buttons sit exactly where the movie clip buttons will appear at runtime.I'd like to know how I can load the buttons at runtime, basically reducing my main movie down to an actions layer. Is this possible or even recommended as good practice?
