Flex :: Automatically Scroll VBox When Item Is Drug Near Top / Bottom Edge?

Dec 30, 2009

I have a VBox containing a bunch of panels. I have implemented dragging and dropping but I need to be able to scroll automatically when the item is drug near the edge. I am having mixed results. I can get it to work, but not well. My example is below. It works if the user bounces their mouse around a little near the top or bottom edge, but I want it to work if they just hold the mouse there.[code]So if they are within 50px of an edge then it should scroll by 50px. I've exaggerated the numbers just to get an affect.

Flex :: Automatically Scroll To Bottom When New Data Added?

Nov 28, 2009

I have 2 questions about flex datagrids: How can I scroll it automatically to the bottom when new portion of data arrived to it (e.g. I added new items). Strange, but seems it doesn't scroll when I use scrolling wheel, is there any trick about it (especially for mac Users).

public function scroll():void {
trace(chatboard.maxVerticalScrollPosition);
chatboard.verticalScrollPosition = chatboard.maxVerticalScrollPosition;
} <mx:TextArea id="chatboard" x="10" y="10" width="310" height="181" text="{chatMessages}" editable="false" verticalScrollPolicy="on" resize="scroll()"/>

But actually it don't work. The text area is not autoscrolled. Seems that 1) scroll is not called after new string is added to chatMessages.

I want to accomplish the same thing with code that Flash's Align - Align Bottom Edge button does within the IDE. I have a series of move clips of different heights which are all added to the stage dynamically via XML. When they are all added, I want to then align them - does flash provide a method for doing this with code? Or is the only way to do it to detect their heights and adjust them by the height difference?

Flash :: Flex Spark List Scroll To Bottom When New Data Is Added

Oct 6, 2010

I have a Spark List (spark.components.List) backed by an ArrayCollection for its dataProvider. The List has a vertical scrollbar when there's too many rows to display. What I want is when a new row is added to the List for it to scroll to the bottom to show that new row.

I've tried calling List's ensureIndexIsVisible from a listener on the ArrayCollection. This doesn't work because the List hasn't yet fully rendered the new row. It will either scroll to the second from the last row, or throw the exception:

Flex :: VBox Doesn't Add Child If All The Objects' Height Over The VBox's Height?

Jun 7, 2011

I have a VBox with fixed width and height, and I add image objects with fixed width and height. I find that if my objects' height exceed the VBox's height, it doesn't show the object. I tried validateNow(), but it doesn't work. The object is added, but VBox just doesn't display it, so it leaves a blank with a same height as my other object.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash Automatically Hyphenate Text In Box To Avoid Big White Spaces Along Right Edge Of Box?

Sep 18, 2008

I have a text box that is about 300 pixels wide and can't be any wider. I also have a lot of text, so wordWrap and multiline are set to true. Works great! Only problem is that the text wrapping creates a lot of unused white space in the right margin of the box. This white space takes up a lot of room and looks kind of rough.

Is it possible to have Flash automatically hyphenate the text in the box to avoid the big white spaces along the right edge of the box?

Flex :: Spark DataGrid On Mobile Application Handle Scroll And Selection Item?

Dec 15, 2011

I have a spark datagrid on a mobile application, I set the

and the dataGrid scrolling is good, I got some problems adding a selectionChange eventListener to it, because scrolling the dataGrid will automatically change the selection and instead simply scrolling it, the function binded will start...

How can I add the touch dalay before select the index, so if I scroll the grid the selection won't change, and it change only if I press the item without scrolling?

Space Appears After Text When Scroll To The Bottom?

Jul 18, 2009

i am a newbie flash designer. a client has asked me to make modifications in a flash file used on his website. it is flash 8 actionscriptfile which i decompiled using sothink decompiler 4.5 build 90120 to '~divisions original.fla'. the xml folder resides in the same folder as ~divisions original.fla. it contains divisions.xml.i discovered a problem - if you view 'divisions.swf' - when you click on 'retail visual solutions'and scroll to the bottom, you can see that there is no space after the text. the end of the text aligns with the end of the scrollbar. but when you click on eyesite, and scroll to the bottom, you can see that there is space after the text. the end of the text does not align with the end of the scrollbar.

my additional questions are:has the creator of the swf file used some unique scrollbar code or is this scrollbar provided in flash itself. in this case, i can read a tutorial to understand it better.i have given 'is correct - no space at bottom of text.jpg' and 'is incorrect - space at bottom of text.jpg' to further explain my query.

May 9, 2009

when it comes to AS3 and I'm creating a drugdeler game in the spirit of old DopeWars. On my main timeline i have placed out 6 movieclips containing pictures of drugs and named the instances. In my actionscript i have created 2 arrays, one containing the instance-names of the drug movieclips and one containing the name and price of each drug in string

Now what I want to do is when you mouse over a drug-movieclip a textfield will appear containing the string associated with that particular drug.The problem is, I have no idea how to get a variable containing the drug[?] arraynumber and then applying it to the second array to get the string into the textfield.Here's my script;

var drugText:TextField = new TextField;var drugIndex:Array = ["Ganja $500", "Heroin $10,000", "Cocaine $25,000", "Hasch $600", "Acid $1,000", "Ectasy $1,500"];var drugs:Array = [ganja_mc, heroin_mc, cocain_mc, hasch_mc, acid_mc, extacy_mc][code].....

Flex :: A VBox With Only One Rounded Corner And Gradient Background

Oct 5, 2009

I'm working with Flex 3.4 SDK.

I'm trying to programmatically(yep, must be this way) style/skin a VBox so that its top right corner is rounded, and it gets a two colors gradient brackground.

Modifying examples I found around I was able to accomplish both effects(corner and background) but only separately:

VBox with not all rounded corners: [URL]

VBox with gradient background: [URL]

But what I need to do is to apply both at the same time. And all my coding attempts so far have failed silently.
