ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Text Fields 'suddenly' Not Parsing HTML


I have come across a bizarre Flash problem with dynamic text fields. I built a site in flash for a designer about a million years ago. The content in her portfolio's dynamic text fields loads from plain .txt files. The fields, which were set to parse simple html tags, used to do so perfectly. At least the last time I checked in April of 2006. The designer just contacted me last week: one of the fields is no longer parsing the html. ?! I opened the original .fla and it is definitely set to do so. Why would this suddenly stop working?[code]

Some of the dynamic text fields in my application stopped working. This is part of a major application which I have been working on for a few months. It worked fine until today. 3 different dynamic text fields suddenly do not show text when I set the text from actionscript This is what I tried: 1) Tried with and without text embedding 2) Turned on and off html 3) Tried with .text and .htmlText 4) Removed the TextField and added a new one 5) Added static text into the dynamic TextField and did not add the dynamic text with actionscript --> the initial text appeared I am working with CS3 and recently updated.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Multiple Text Formats In One Field? www.actionscript.org

I am trying to bring in multiple RSS feed nodes into one Dynamic Text field in Flash CS3 using AS3. I have made vars for my headline node and my description text node and I am able to have them both display in the same dynamic text field by formatting them with HTML tags. My problem is changing the text size and color for the description node var. Is this possible in the same Text field. Can the default text format be overidden by code? Here is what I have so far.... ActionScript Code: //This code loads and Parses the RSS feed var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader(); loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onLoaded); [Code]..... I tried adding size = '8' in the <p> tag but it did not override the default size in the Dynamic Text Field (dtfa) properties.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Multiple If Else If With Dynamic Text? www.kirupa.com

Esentially, this would allow multiple navigation options, that are input dynamically from the text file. Here is the actionscript that I have on one of the buttons. I realize that each button will have to be scripted indivudually, but I can't even get this one to work. It reads the "if" and the "else", but ignores the "else if" parts.Note that my dynamic text fields are named 1, 2, 3, and are inside the movie clipe "test_text" which is on the main timeline.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Variable Inside Movieclips board.flashkit.com

I recently started learning Flash and Actionscript and now I'm trying to write an actionscript for the first time. Im doing this in Actionscript 2.0.I have a movieclip that consists of two images and one dynamic text field with a variable. The name of the images are "VS1_P1_RUN" and "VS1_P1_OFF" and the name of the dynamic text field is "pumptext". In the dynamic text field I have the variable "VS1_P1_Ind". VS1_P1_Ind is probably a boolean variable as it shows 1 or 0 in another program but in Flash it shows True or False (not sure if Flash thinks it's a text/word or a boolean).My script is supposed to display the image named VS1_P1_RUN if the variable of the dynamic text field pumptext shows the text True and it goes like this:[code] So I'm completely stuck in what to do. The bottom code works as it should but I want the images to show depending on the value of the variable VS1_P1_Ind. I thought just changing the text field to dynamic and typing the variable name in the variable field would do it but no.If it could be a clue to the solution I'll also share that the value of the variable is not seen/shown in textfield while inside the movieclip. Creating a dynamic textfield outside of the movieclip shows the value of the variable just fine, True/False.

Professional :: Dynamic Text Fields Not Working Properly In CS5? forums.adobe.com

In an attempt to use a dynamic text field on my page, and passing text to it such as.. question.text = "Sample text here" ..where the instance name of the dynamic text field is "question" ..I found that if I add another text box to the page as static text, but using the same font as the dynamic field, the dynamic field populates incorrectly.If I compile using CS4 it works fine, and if I break apart the static text in CS5 it works fine.I also found if I change the font of the static field to something other than that of the dynamic.. it works fine.However in further testing..if I place a second static text field on the page,the dynamic again breaks even if I use the different font as before. All of these scenarios work fine in CS4, but in CS5 is causing my dynamic field to change to the same as my static text, or simply mixing letters and otherwise not displaying my dynamic text...I've tested on three systems here all with CS5 ...

Flash Is Cutting Off The Bottom Of Scrollable Text? www.gotoandlearnforum.com

I made a post under actionscript 2.0, but I wasn't sure if it belonged there. So here goes.I made a text box and added a mask to it, it is really long so I made it scrollable.

Passing Text Variabes to a form PHP script for emailing.If a user makes a number of selections from visual indicators on frame 1 of a Flash 8 file and textual descriptions of those selections are then actionscripted into dynamic text boxes as text values in a form on frame 2, can the text values of the dynamic text boxes be given variable names that can be sent to and processed by a server side PHP script as regular input type text box variables would be processed? Example: User selects 3 images on frame 1 via a mouse on(release) event. the actionscript being: on(release) {[code]....

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamically Populating A Textfield Within Several Instances Of A Movie Clip? www.actionscript.org

been working in Flash using AS2 and loading external XML data into the movie. I am able to load the data into in Flash and parse it, but I haven't been able to figure out how to load the names of buttons from separate nod values into a textfield.Unfortunately, I dont feel I know AS3 well enough and am a little bit rusty on my AS2.I created a movie clip which holds the dynamic textfield and placed 30 instances on the stage. Each instance is successively named "cityName[i]" where i is a number from 1-30. I've tried setting the instances as both buttons and movie clips. I also tried setting both the .text and.htmlText attributes, but neither works. Ive embedded the fonts on the dynamic text field. Ive also tried changing the field to input instead of dynamic but that doesn�work either. Ive been tracing things to try to debug, but haven� found the issue yet.Here's the code: ActionScript Code: //load XML data var citiesData:XML = new XML(); [code]........
