Flex :: Center Align A Button In A Hbox?

Oct 7, 2009

I have a VBox inside which I have 4 HBoxes. The second level HBox is initially hidden.When I click the label, 'Show more Options', the second level HBox is displayed.Now I have the space occupied by the 'second level HBOx' empty and the 'search' button appaers below the space.My first question is, Is there a way to position the Search Button in such a way that, the space is not there and after the 'Show more Options' label is clicked, the 'Second Level HBox' appears?And the second question is, Can I position the Search Button at the center of the page. Is there any method to center the contents of a HBox of a VBox?This is my code:

<mx:Form x="47" y="219" width="80%" >
<mx:VBox id="searchBox" >
<mx:HBox id="searchTitle" width="100%" height="20" backgroundColor="#2680D5">

Flex :: Any Way To Bottom Left Align Components?

May 4, 2010

Any way to bottom-left align components? An <HBox .../> nested in a <Canvas .../> doesn't work because the elements in the HBox are top-aligned instead of bottom aligned.

For example, I'd like my components to be aligned like this:
+-------------+ <-- container
| components |
| | V |
| V +--+ |
| +-+ | | |
| +-+ +--+ |

Flex :: MX Text Doesn't Vertically Align, But Other Components Do?

Jun 13, 2011

I have the following code layout in mxml. The button will be positioned correctly in the middle, but the text remains anchored to the top. This is not the behavior of the spark component label, but I need multiple style runs in the text and have found the mxText component to be the best solution...

<s:HorizontalLayout verticalAlign="middle" gap="0" />

Flex :: ExtJs Components Inside A Driven Page?

May 7, 2010

I am working on a page which mainly consists of Charts and Grids. Thought that Flex would be the best fit with some cool effects. But however, I now feel that ExtJs grid looks better than Flex data grid.

My question is whether there is any possibility / mechanism to embed Ext JS grid into a Flex page. Lets say my main page has a Flex tab panel. In first tab, I would like to see 'Flex Chart' and in second tab I would want to see 'ExtJS grid'.

I would also want to know of any Flex Data grid plugin (if exists), which looks/works just like Ext Js grid.

Flex :: Components Inside A Repeater Not Resizing As Expected?

I have an mxml panel in which I'm using a repeater. The panel can be resized horizontally and I would like for the repeated components to resize together with panel. Here is a simplified example of how things look like:

<!-- scripts and some controls -->
<mx:VBox width="100%">

Actionscript 3 :: Flex/AIR: Resize All Components Inside A WindowedApplication?

May 14, 2011

It's interesting. If you set stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.EXACT_FIT; all components are resized when you resize the window, BUT there is a grey stripe at the bottom of the window that is not.By the way, is it possible to take that grey line/stripe off from the window?Try to resize this window and you'll see what happens:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <s:WindowedApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx" xmlns:local="*"


There is also a timer just for checking if the Stage's size is the same as the application window's one.

Flex :: Add Event Listener To Components Inside A Repeater

Oct 11, 2011

I want to add an event listener to each component inside a repeater, but don't know how. Here's some code I have tried:

<mx:Repeater id="rp" dataProvider="{dataProvider}" width="100%">
<mx:Button id="attach" creationComplete="addListeners(attach[rp.currentIndex])"/>

This doesn't work. creationComplete is not called until the repeater has finished instead of (as I expected) when the creation of the button is complete. I'm not sure how to accomplish this.

BTW - I also tried placing the creationComplete on the parent component to the repeater, but it would only be called the first time the component was rendered (the data inside the repeater sometimes changes) so that didn't work.

Flex :: Change Size Of An HBox In Flex To Fit It's Container?

Jul 28, 2010

I create an HBox, fill it with a grid of buttons, and set the scroll policy. When I resize the window, the stage changes size, and so does the HBox ... to a point. Once it reaches the height of the Grid it contains, it stops shrinking, like it has a "min-height". This ruins the scrollbar that I'm trying to establish in this case.

I've set the height to 100%, shouldn't it always take the height of the stage, it's parent?[code]....

Actionscript 3 :: Create HBox With Only The Top Corners Rounded In Flex?

Oct 27, 2009

I'm trying to create an HBox in flex that has only the top corners rounded. HBox (and all the other flex containers) have a cornerRadius style, but it applies to all corners. I'm not seeing a way to specify the style of individual corners.

Is there any built-in way to do this, or will I need to write my own custom drawing code to draw the background with rounded corners?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Using Flash Components In Multiple SWCs Inside Only Project?

Feb 8, 2010

Ok, this is a somewhat complicated issue dealing with SWCs and compilers. I've outlined steps to reproduce the problem below. I'm using the method outlined here to bring in Flash content to my project. I have 15-20 SWCs already, and it's working fine for those assets, the problem is specifically related to Flash's components (ComboBox, RadioButton etc.) If anyone has *any* advice on this, please let me know as we are completely stumped at this point!
The issue we're having involves using multiple external SWC files which contain AS3 components from Flash CS4. When two SWCs are linked to an ActionScript project (using Flash Builder 4 Beta (build 4.0.0)) there are collisions in the referenced classes which cause the most recently published SWC to knock out any duplicate classes in the other SWCs. A simple way to replicate this is as follows:

ActionScript 1/2 :: Accessing Components Nested Inside A Movie Clip Instantiated At Runtime

Jul 31, 2009

I am having this problem with actionscript 2:

I have a class that instantiates a movieclip from the library, eg: myBar:MovieClip = level0.AttachMovie("debugbar", "debugbar_mc", 999);
myBar is an instance variable in the class.

Now the important part - debugbar in the library is a movieclip that contains some components - buttons and textInputs. The problem comes when trying to access these components.

I would have thought that this would work: myBar.input_txt.text = "hello";

in order to set the text of "input_txt", the instance name of a TextInput component on the timeline of the movie clip (frame 1 of a 1 frame mc).

This does not work. Infact, I cannot access any specific "component" properties - they come back undefined. I cannot added event handlers for the component events either.

I can however set and retrieve MovieClip properties for the "input_txt", such as _x. However there is one added strange thing with this too - setting _visible to false doesn't seem to work (however perhaps a component by default overrides this).

I tried casting it to a component, such as:
var temp:TextInput = TextInput(myBar.input_txt);
which gave "temp" as null. Without casting, it gives the path to correctly.

It almost seems like the components are somehow broken when trying to access them this way - or that they cannot be accessed this way?

The thing is, I was able to access all of this before, when the code to do it was placed on the timeline (frame 1, the only frame) of the debugbar itself, where the components were placed at authortime.

I need to have it in a class though, as I need to pass in certain objects that need to be accessed by the mc. I am rather baffled as to why all this doesn't work.
