Using special characters in flash

February 17th, 2008 1 comment

Use encoding to ensure that variables are passed correctly.The example below illustrates how special characters can be retained using URL encoding:

A text file containing the following variable value:

Cost=+85
Will read into Flash as ‘Cost= 85′, dropping the + character.

However, using URL encoding to replace the + character the original text:

Cost=%2b85
Will result in Flash displaying ‘Cost= +85′ correctly.

Use this URL Encoding table for special characters:

backspace %08
tab %09
linefeed %0A
return %0D
space %20
! %21
%22
# %23
$ %24
% %25
& %26
%27
* %2A
+ %2B
, %2C
- %2D
. %2E
/ %2F
< %3C
= %3D
> %3E
? %3F
@ %40
[ %5B
\ %5C
] %5D
^ %5E
_ %5F

Textfield Listener

February 14th, 2008 No comments
  1. //construct the listener object
  2. myListenerObject = new Object();
  3.  
  4. myListenerObject.onChanged = function(txt) {
  5. //perform this when textfield value has changed
  6. execute();
  7. }
  8.  
  9. //call the TextField.addListener method to register the object
  10. Textfield.addListener(myListenerObject);

It has begun!
