ActionScript 3.0 :: Dispatch An Event From One Class To The Other?

Apr 6, 2009

I don't know if i've been in front of my computer for too long, but I can't for the life of me understand why this doesn't work:

All i'm trying to do is dispatch an event from one class to the other, when I trace it out, it says the event is getting added, but the event listener isn't picking anything up.

Flash - Listener In Main Document Class For Custom Dispatch Event From Another Class Does Not Respond Or Call Function?

Apr 1, 2011

I have a document class called Main.as In the class constructor I have the following listener:

enter code here
var listeningFORModeChangeToStudent:Sprite = new Sprite;
listeningFORModeChangeToStudent.addEventListener(TellAllModeChangeToStudent.STUDENT,exp);
addChild(listeningFORModeChangeToStudent);

[code]....

In a third class I make a call to the despatcher in the previous class:

enter code here
var ThisTellAllModeChangeToStudent:TellAllModeChangeToStudent = new TellAllModeChangeToStudent;
ThisTellAllModeChangeToStudent.tellAllModeChangeToStudent();

I have trace statements in eveything and from this I know the despatcher in TellAllModeChangeToStudent is being called.The problem is that the listener in the main.as is not calling the function exp.I cant see why and I dont know how to check if the listener is actually seeing the dispatch event?

AS3 :: Flash - Dispatch Event From Class?

Nov 6, 2009

I have a class which makes a url request and stores data from that request. When the data is retrieved, parsed, and stored into an array, I'm sending a dispatch event which I listen for in my document class. In the event handler function in the document class, I'm accessing the array that was compiled from the class. The array inside the class has 15 values, however in my event handler function, I'm only retrieving one value from it, which is the last value in the array. I posted my code below. Is there a different way I'm supposed to use the dispatchEvent in order to retrieve all of the array values instead of one?

Class
package com.src
{
import flash.display.Sprite;

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dispatch Event From Class Scope

Aug 12, 2008

I have 3 files.
main.fla

PHP Code:
import classes.LevelObj;
var newLevel:LevelObj = new LevelObj();
var levelListener:Object = new Object();
levelListener.onLoaded = function(oEvent:Object) {
[Code] .....

Now this runs great but in the loadLevel function of LevelObj.as, when I receive the event from the GBXML class that it has finished loading I want to call another function within the same class (LevelObj) to continue with further processing the XML data. What I make of it, is that I am still within the scope of the myListener object. Should I use a Delegate function here to get to the function within the LevelObj scope?And how about properties from the LevelObj scope? When doing a simple trace of some testVar I get undefined. Logical ofcourse because it is not within the same scope. But I am stuck here.

This is the part that should contain the call to the function..
PHP Code:
myListener.onLoaded = function(oEvent:Object):Void {
trace("LevelObj.XObj > "+oEvent.success);
if (oEvent.success) {
trace(testVar); //CALL FUNCTION HERE IN SCOPE OF LevelObj
} else {

Flex :: Dispatch An Event From A Class That Inherits From EventDispatcher?

Nov 23, 2009

What I want to do is to dispatch the click event when the component is clicked. (The class is essentially some text in a textfield that needs to be able to do certain things, and it needs to be able to respond to a click). Sounds easy enough... I want the event dispatched when that portion of the text is clicked. But uh...how? it's not like a button where I can just go myButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, myClickHandler);That's clear, because some component is going to be listening for the Click event dispatched when myButton is clicked. It is built into the AS3 framework that a button knows how to listen for a click event.

After the import statements I've got:[Event(name="click" type="mx.events.Event")]How do I dispatch the event when the component is clicked, when the component doesn't yet know how to respond to a click event? I've tried adding an event listener in the textfield which contains this custom class of text, but nothing's happening because the Click event hasn't been dispatched.

Flash :: Dispatch Event With Bubbles On A Class That Do Not Appear On The Stage?

Jan 29, 2012

I have small swf as3 flash applications that are loaded by a main flex application. The main Flex Application contains an SWFLoader and i added an event listener on SWFLoader.content to fetch custom events that I prepared.

now whenever I like in the application I use the function dispatchEvent to create the event and I make sure that the bubbles parameter of the event is true. so in this case the event bubbles up in the stage until it reaches my event listener and I can handle the event properly. the problem resides when I have a static class and I want to dispatch the event from there. because it's a static class and not a display object that appears on my stage it has no where to bubble to and because of that I cannot fetch the custom even in my main flex application.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dispatch An Event From A Static, Non-display Object Class

Aug 23, 2009

I have a SendData class that sends form info to a php script. It is a static class that does not extend anything.

I want to be able to dispatch an event if there is an error, or when it gets info back from the server. I have a custom event class that I have been using to dispatch events like this, but I have only used that in displayObject extended classes.

The problem is, it seems like something has to be a displayObject based class to dispatch events. I know there must be a way to do this, but I'm having trouble finding it in searches.

ActionScript 3.0 :: EventDispatcher Class To Dispatch A Custom Event To Stop A Video From Playing

Nov 11, 2009

I am trying to work with the EventDispatcher class to dispatch a custom event to stop a video from playing. The video plays inside a MovieClip with an attached class file called PlayerProfile. I want the video in the PlayerProfile MovieClip to stop playing when the user clicks on another MovieClip called ScrollBox. I'm getting no compile or runtime erros, but the code is not stopping the video. I have seen use of a public static constant to represent the custom event. Is that what I am missing here.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Dispatch Event In A Preloader?

Oct 9, 2009

dispatch an event on every 'onProgressEvent' of an external display object loading.

Does dispatching an event frequently cause performance issues?

All I want to do is have a parent class listen for whenever a progressEvent has fired in my loader class, rather than setting up an onEnterFrame loop in the parent class to call 'get' methods within the loader - this seems inefficient to me seeing as onProgressEvents don't occur on every frame.
