ActionScript 2.0 :: Control Animation With Keyboard?

Jul 12, 2005

I'm trying to create an input field where a user types a word and if correct, the movie progresses to the next frame (I just can't don't know how). More importantly, I wondered if there was a way to substitute clicking on a button with hitting a key on the keyboard? So instead of using a "submit" button to check the field's value... the user can just hit the "enter" or "return" button and the "if" and "gotoandplay" actions will occur.

Walking Animation (MovieClip Control By Keyboard Events)

May 2, 2009

I have two MovieClips, and both are controlled by keyboard events. One is a globe that I want to rotate in one direction or the other. The second is a walking animation that should change direction or stand still depending on which key is pressed or if none are.

Here is the AS Code:
/*var rightDown:Boolean = false;
var leftDown:Boolean = false;
var upDown:Boolean = false;
var downDown:Boolean = false;*/
stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyDownHandler);
[Code] .....

You can see that I've tried a few different methods, but neither has worked correctly. Using the timer came close, but then the globe kept speeding up, and I couldn't get the walking animation to default back to the standing animation. Here is the .fla [URL].

ActionScript 3.0 :: Keyboard Events (movie Clip Moves Via Keyboard Control) And Scenes

Nov 7, 2009

I have 2 scenes. In both scenes, I have a movie clip that moves via keyboard control. If the goto next scene is triggered by the movie clip in the first scene the keyboard control works in the second. However, if I use a button to move to the next scene then there isn't any control over the movieclip in that scene. I've traced the keyCode in the second scene and it is picked up but the switch statement doesn't run. I'm migrating to Actionscript 3.0 and updating something I created in 2.0. I would like to do it without writing a class.

ActionScript 2.0 :: [CS3] Control By Keyboard And Buttons

Dec 22, 2008

I am creating a game where the user can control the character either by left or right keyboard buttons or by clicking on a left of right movielcip buttons. Currently, I can control the character using the keyboard but I cannot figure out how to add the MC button control. Here is my current code attached to the character_mc:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (_root.background_mc._x<=-3620) {
_root.background_mc._x = -3620;


Can I add another listener for either movieclip button (left_btn_mc, right_btn_mc) to the above code, or do I need to add the code to the each movieclip button?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Keyboard Control Of Two Objects At One

Dec 2, 2010

Working on my first complex game, and I'm not sure how to best approach this problem. I've got a submarine whose motion is controlled by the four arrow keys and which launches torpedoes via the space bar. After the sub shoots, I want the torpedo to be steerable with two other keys (probably Z for left and X for right), and at the same time, have arrow keys continue to control the ship.

First question, is this possible? I'm assuming I'll have to switch focus back and forth via code.

Second, what the best approach to setting this up? Attach listeners to the stage or to each object? If I chose the former, could i avoid focus issues by detecting which key was pressed and then manipulating the appropriate object?

I'm using the slider component to control the volume of an MP3 but also need to use the arrow keys to move a character.

Is there a way to do it temporarily.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Class To Control Keyboard Input For An Mc?

Flash :: PC Control - User Mouse Clicks Or Eventually Keyboard - Pressing Some Keys

Nov 23, 2009

I'm completely new to AS3/Flash programming, though I program in C/C++/C# in my job. These days I got a project idea which I think Flash would better fit than the other languages I mentioned above. I want to create an on-line automation application that can:

1. Control user mouse clicks, or eventually keyboard, pressing some keys;

2. Communicate/connect to the user's bluetooth device, establishing connections to the mobile devices attached to it - the web application in this case would act as a server.

Flex 4.5 Mobile Resize Textarea With Animation On Soft Keyboard Activate Event?

Jul 1, 2011

I'm using Flex 4.5.1 with AIR 2.7 (and Flash Builder 4.5.1) to build an app for the Blackberry Playbook.

The app has a large textarea that needs to be resized when the soft keyboard shows up. I am able to hook into the soft keyboard events and do things there.

Now, I want to resize the textarea to fit the remaining part of the screen when the keyboard shows up. I know the current and destination size and want to use a smooth animation to show the textarea resizing. (I can't already set the height and can see the textarea being correctly resized in the keyboard_activating event - but I want to do it through an animation). I've tried using the Animate class, the spark.effects.Move class and none of them seem to work in this case. They seem to run the animation but the screen does not get refreshed!
