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]

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]....

Each node also has attributes called Header and Body and so on. What I'm wondering is, how do I call out specific things based on an attribute?Right now, when I call the Header attribute from FirstNode I get ALL of the Header information from ALL of the FirstNode nodes. I need to be able to get JUST the info from FirstNodeID="1", FirstNodeID="2" and so on as needed. [Code]... I'd like to be able to be able to simply rename the dynamic text fields and then only paste in the actionscript that defines what nodes to pull the text from and what fields to put it into. So everything from the //MAIN TEXT area in the actionscript above.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Changing Font Of Text In Dynamic Fields Using Buttons? www.actionscript.org

I have a user text input field and a preview button, when they press preview the inputed text appears in a dynamic text field in another part of the window. I need to be able to change the font of the text in the dynamic field using buttons (so the user can see their text displayed in various different fonts which will be embedded into the swf). After watching various different tutorials I hashed together this code for my first button to change the font to Times New Roman which I embedded with the class name timesNew. ActionScript Code: times_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, showTim); function showTim(e:MouseEvent):void{ var oneFont = new timesNew(); var timForm:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); timForm.font = oneFont; [Code] ..... When I run the movie everything works fine and the console shows no errors but when I press the button to change the font the text in the dynamic field simply disappears.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Movie Clip Resize Yscale Based Off Dynamic Text Height www.actionscript.org

I'm using a tweening engine and I need to be able to base the _yscale % of a movie clip off the height of a dynamic text field that is slightly smaller contained within the movie clip. 52 pixels smaller to be exact.I'm very poor at math but I'm guessing so far that some variable needs to be declared to factor the percentage based off the height of the dynamic text field. And I just can't think of how to do that.What I know so far:movie clip height at 100% _yscale = 396 the 'buffer' space above and below the dynamic field = 52.So if my dynamic text field height = 0, my movie clip would be 52 pixels in height. And that percentage in _yscale is 13.1%.I just can't figure out the math for this and how to translate it into ActionScript.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Gathering Existing Dynamic Text Fields Into An Array? www.actionscript.org

I'd like to gather (at run-time) all dynamic text fields on the stage and push them into an array. Then I can load an xml of data and populate each dynamic text field in the array with a matching value in the xml file. So basically I'm writing one class file I'd like to be used on many different swf files, each of which can have one or 20+ dynamic text fields. I'd like the swf to loop through each text dynamic field, throw each into an array and then grab an xml item with a matching name as that text field and set its textfield.text value from it. So actually if the dynamic text fields are just in a for loop then I guess I wouldn't even need to place them in an array, just not sure how to identify the dynamic text fields on the stage.

Make Html Pages Work Like Aspx Pages? social.msdn.microsoft.com
