  1. http://www.asmakta.com/clients/testfiles/textbeta.html The text will format here -but not to any visible text field. Instead it will format any newly created texbox -from a user's perspective, it needs to apply to a visible field, one that was most recently selected. Anyone want to take a crack at it?
  2. Please, take a sec too look at my link above (if you haven't)-The text does format. I just can't get it to work with a textbox that has allready been created. I was not implying it's something inherently wronge with the TransformManager. My formatting applies in this example when you apply formatting and THEN click the text button -you will see it works with the NEW textbox not one being diplayed If there is an easy way to figure out what I did codewise I would like to show you -I spent time trying to figure it out. I can post a link to the fla file or a word file with the code, -if it's an easy fix great. If it's a question of time for you -I would like to discuss it if is a question of time for you
  3. I just got the latest and the greatest, I'll try a few things out. so, If I can deselect all -in my example will that allow me to set text-formatting properties to an object that is being displayed -and selected?
  4. See this example of text formatting: http://www.asmakta.com/clients/testfiles/textbeta.html It works, but I would like it to apply formatting to a the text object in view, rather then the one created next (yet to be seen) in this case It would be awkward for a user to edit text they can't see yet. I have an idea why it does this, -because the object that is being displayed is deselected when I click a button? I would like it to work with the text object being displayed is there a way to change that or a good workaround? Suggestions welcome
  5. Is there a single event that I can assign to the a clear button to puge everything on a page? (as opposed to deleting one item at a time or grouping and deleting)
  6. I noticed -at least the way I am going about it that when movieclips are nested inside movieclips -the transformManager doesn't like them. What I want to accomplish is to display a gallery in a scrollbar -nest the movies in that scrollbar, and then drag them from the scrollbar and place them in a designated area. (reparenting on stopDrag) once placed -I dissable startDrag(); and stopDrag(); and have an event place the movieclip into transformManager -it "doesn't play nicely". Either I'm doing it wrong, or is transformManager not set up to work with movieclips inside other movieclips
  7. The reason why I wanted to know about this is -I though that if I dissabled delete with textboxes I could enable delete to remove the whole box -rather than backspace over text. If I created a button to remove a text box -would it remove the last one I added or delete selected text boxes.
  8. Is there an easy way to change the keyboard asisgnment of delete. Namely I would like to set "delete" to delete text only using backspace as backspace. I would also like to disable "backspace" as a delete with shapes and gifs.
  9. That's what I needed to know.
  10. That does the tick. Is there a way I can set it up to get textboxes to delete? Regular objects work great (BTY love the grouping and moving with arrows.)
  11. Yes, I'm working in the authoring environment . I'm glad I'm not the only one who had that happen. Intresting.
  12. --------------------------------Update Delete DOES work, but for me it works only on "ctrl-delete"--wierd any reason why? As with my last question, It's simple. The AS3 demo seems to work sporadicaly -with delete enabled, it works only after the text box is slected. I tried it myself: Here is some sample code with delete enabled(using delete key) Any sugestions?
  13. I just wasn't sure about the syntax, that's all , not so much a problem with the class itself. I figured it out.
  14. mostly, I tried your examples and they work great here is what I Ultimately have in mind: I want to use an event handler to draw either an api or place a sprite(the same way a user would draw many circles or squares) in the array and, hopefully TransformManager would be able to work with them.
  15. Can this be used in some way: to place this sprite or movieclip here The idea is to add and remove items from the array of items to be controlled by the TransformManager
  16. Ok, tack that up to "user error" good to know -when set to embed it works.
  17. This class is great! I just noticed that if text is permitted to rotate, then the box remains, but the text inside diassapears. This is not critical to my project(I could just dissable rotate for textboxes fo rthe time being)but I just wanted to mention if it has not been brought up.
