Flex :: Show Scroll Bars On A Container When Children Are Off The Top/left?

Mar 18, 2010

If I've got a Container with a child component that is off either the top or the left hand side:

Is there any way to get scroll bars to show up? ie, so I can scroll up and get the button back in view, the same way I could if the button was off the bottom right side?

Flex :: Scrollbar - Scroll Bars Not Added/enabled When They Should Be?

Oct 7, 2009

I'm currently learning Flex, and am having the hardest time getting scroll bars to work. In short, I'm making a giant form for users to fill out, contained within a viewstack component. The user will type up information in one view, and it will be displayed in the other. But right now in the first canvas I have components that run off the screen and flex doesn't automatically add a scroll bar, so I added 'verticalScrollPolicy="on"' to my canvas. Now, while it gives me a scroll bar, it gives me an empty scroll bar. I still cannot move it up or down, meaning components are still trapped off the bottom of my screen. Am I missing something simpleEdit - I'm using Adobe Flex Builder 3, and the components it lets you drag in. http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/218/problem1f.jpg This is a picture of the problem, and i guess relavent code would be.

<mx:Application xmlns:mx="adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" width="830" height="835">
<mx:ViewStack x="10" y="72" id="viewstack1" width="790" height="751" >
<mx:Canvas label="Design Mode" width="100%" height="100%" verticalScrollPolicy="on"

Actionscript 3 :: Setting The Stage To Scroll Horizontally Left Or Right To Show Content When Button Is Clicked?

Mar 10, 2012

I want to create a flash site where I have a long horizontal movie clip split into about five sections, each about 960px wide. The effect I want to achieve is when the user clicks on the button it will scroll horizontally to the specific section of the flash project. For example, if your on the home page and you click on the contact the movieclip will tween to the right until it reached the contact section of the long movieclip. And I also want it where if the user clicks on the home it'll scroll back to the home page. I can't seem to accomplish. I tried positioning with the x property and move right so many pixels. I'm thinking about setting like some coordinates or some kinds of reference points so when the button is clicked it will go to those specific points in the stage.

Flex :: Moving Children Of A Container (defined In MXML) Inside An "inner Container"

Jan 27, 2010

I'm currently working on a custom component which extends Canvas (let's call it SuperCanvas) ; it's basically a container that let you zoom & pan its contents. It would be too long to explain why, but I can't use scrollRect, so I was forced to declare a Canvas object (called innerCanvas)... inside my SuperCanvas (I know, not very nice =/) I would like to know if there's a proper way to "redirect" the creation of my component's children in this canvas.

Flex :: Listen For Dispatched Events From Container Children?

Oct 5, 2010

I'm using an accordion container that has it's creation policy set to auto. One of the accordion's children is a spark border container that has a data grid within it. Currently, I'm using the data grid's creationComplete property to call a function; similarly, I'm using the dragComplete property to call another function.

How can I add listeners for events (creationComplete & dragComplete) via actionscript? The obvious problem is that the accordion does not create all its children on creation (nor do I want it to), so I can't simply use something like: datagrid.addEventListener(...)

Flex - Container's Clipped Children Not Visible On Scrolling?

Mar 30, 2011

I have a VBox inside a Canvas. The 'red bars' are custom components based on 'Canvas'. All red bars are of equal height. I have 20 red bars inside the VBox. The scrollbars visible in the screenshot are the Canvas's scrollbars. The scrollbars of the VBox are disabled using verticalScrollPolicy = off.

Without scrolling, only 16 red bars (and a part of the 17th bar) are visible. However, when I scroll down the Canvas I expect to see the remaining red bars - but the bars that are not visible when the application starts don't get 'drawn'. What am I doing wrong? I want the user to be able to see the 17th - 20th bars when the Canvas is scrolled down.

Flex :: VGroup - (Parent) Container Does Not Change Height With Children?

May 13, 2011

I have code like the following:
<s:VGroup gap="10" id="group" height="100%">
<s:Label text="This is page 2" />
<s:Button content="Resize Canvas" click="resize(event);"/>
<mx:Canvas id="photoCanvas" color="#567898" backgroundColor="#125567">

I don't understand why the following does not work:
Pushing the Button resizes the photoCanvas's height (gets taller or smaller). Since the photoCanvas control is a child element of the VGroup shouldn't the container update itself to the new height? The Vgroup has ALWAYS the same height, no matter what the (total) height of the children is! I would like the VGroup to adjust itself and get a height value equal to the sum of its children heights. Is this not possible??

Flex :: Elements - Loop Over Children Of A Container When They Are State-dependent?

Aug 17, 2011

Flex's new States re-parents visual items that are marked with includeIn/excludeFrom. If I have a Group (MainGroup) with 5 children/elements that are state controlled, is there still a way to get a reference to MainGroup's children? mainGroup.numChildren and mainGroup.numElements don't work since the children are re-parented. At best, they show 1.

Flex :: Get Container To Scroll To Last Position?

Aug 12, 2009

URL...Whenever a chat is added, I want it to completely show the last message. I'm using maxVerticalScrollPosition to set the scroll position on the list, but it is always wrong (see the example). It undershoots it by a row or so. I've tried this with a regular container and it does the same thing. If I do maxVerticalScrollPosition+1, it sort of works, but if the last message is particularly long, it will be cut off (only show the top). How can I get it to scroll to the actual bottom of the container??[code]

Popup Windows And Scroll Bars

Jan 12, 2012

Is there any reason why a scrollbar would not show up in a popup window? THe popup window is a dreamweaver document.URL...If you click on the "Interior" button, and then click on any of the balusters a popup window will appear with 4 images. This popup window has no scrollbar?? It should, and I didn't do anything to tell it to "not show a scrollbar".The scrollbar shows up on my Mac, but does not show up on my friends Mac, nor does it show up on my PC?Also, I have been doing a few tests on this page on the first few balusters (trying to get around the scrollbar issue), so maybe pick the 5th baluster, rather than the first one? Or pick one of the last balusters.

Dynamic Display And Scroll Bars

May 22, 2011

I have a file uploader that uses a file reference list (FRL) to upload files. However what I want to do is use the FRL to display all the images/files that were selected and then display them in either a list, or photo gallery. I would lean more towards the photo gallery approach but I don't know how to dynamically lay out the thumbnails properly. What's the best way to display the thumbnails in rows 3 pictures wide and then skip down a line etc.

Now ofcourse I don't know how many files will be selected so my next question would be can I draw the thumbnail gallery in a seperate container (or frame sort of like in VB) and then have that container have it's own scroll bars? In most other programming languages I would have no problem doing this but I am a bit new to flash and I am a bit stumped.

How To Use Scroll Bars With Fullscreen Flash

Oct 4, 2007

I am using full screen flash to make my flash movie fill the browser window. I also, need for it to have a scroll bar, as it's 1400 pixels vertical. For normal full screen flash, you set the height and width to 100 percent. But because I needed a scroll bar, I changed the height to "1400" pixels instead. This created the scroll bar I needed, but it only works in Internet Explorer, and not firefox or safari. How I could ensure that I have a scrollbar on all browsers?

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="[URL]" width="100%" height="1400px" id="shell2" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="shell2.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="scale" value="exactfit" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="shell2.swf" quality="high" scale="exactfit" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="100%" height="100%" name="shell2" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="[URL]" />

2. If you view it in your browser, you'll notice after trying to scroll through some of the content that the scrollbars in the flash are a little messed up.. it's not easy to notice but bothers me..

3. How can I take the Website By Joey Khan (at the bottom) and make it either highlight or glow or popout or something so that it's obvious that you can interact with it when you rollover it?

4. On the contact page, the red confirmation/error text that appears under the form when you make an error or send the message, it does not com through correctly, I'm not sure what's wrong their.
