carriage return in xml



  • 1. Actionscript and ALT+TAB
    Ok, I am not one to typically post to message boards, but this has been driving me CRAZY forever, and I want to mount a full-forced attack on Macromedia to get them to change this (non-violent of course) - Whenever I'm working in an Actionscript window and using another app at the same time (be it Photoshop, or looking at some tutorials in IE), if I switch back to my open Flash doc (generally with ALT+TAB) and try to start typing where I left off, I get reminded that the ActionScript window loses focus and I'm now doing things I don't want to on the stage.... I then have to click back on the Actionscript window (and possibly find the item I was appending script too first), find where I was again, and resume my code... Maybe I'm just being a bastard by whining about this extra half a second of work, BUT IT's FRICKIN ANNOYING Please, if you put nothing else into MX 2005 (or whatever), please please please fix this, it's a source of constant aggrivation (kind of OCD i know), but I think it would be another step towards making Flash a friendlier environment to develop in...
  • 2. Fill in the blanks learning interaction
    Hi Everyone ! I am working on a fill in the blanks quiz using Learning Interactions template since I need the quiz to be SCORM compliant. One of the exercises has two entries in the same question. Here's an example: 1) Macromedia Flash is a powerful ................. for developing rich ................ content. As far as I know, using those templates I can only set one blank. There is any way to set more than one as in the previous example. I would appreciate your help at XXXX@XXXXX.COM . Thanks in advance, Chris [E= XXXX@XXXXX.COM ] XXXX@XXXXX.COM [/E]
  • 3. Key Deactivation
    I have a flash animation where when you press on a arrow key the movie instance on the screen moves. And I also have it set up so when you press a certain other key like the A key or S it plays the movie instance. But my problem is when the animation is playing the arrow keys still work and can move the instance while playing. I want it set up so when the keys (A and S for example) are pressed the movie not only plays but the arrow keys are deactivated untill the movie instance stops playing. Any idea what to put. Anything will help. Thanks
  • 4. Attn. Mr.Andrew Chemey
    (If you already read my message please ignore it. B'cause i desperately want your help, i am sending it once again) Sir, It works perfectly. Thank you for the detailed notes on this. But the problem now i am facing is that i want to include multiple fill in the blanks questions in the same screen(ie, questions based on a specific topic and its blanks). Can i add more questions to the component parameter window, as you add the check boxes ? Or i have to add Interaction_ID. And what is the use of this interaction _ID Expecting your valueable reply Thanking u once again, MVN

carriage return in xml

Is it possible to have a carriage return in a text string within my xml 

I have tried using \r but this simply appears in flash as \r

different ways to go about this

 1 would be to use the html text property of the textfield and pass the text 
through a custom function to convert it to html format adding tags etc 
before adding it to the text field

 2 have a custom delimiter for your project like /n or something, split the 
string at every instance of your custom delimter into an array, then do a for 
loop adding each entry to the same string but with  += newline after every entry

 var new_str = ""

 for(var i=0;i<=splitString_array.length-1;i++){

 new_str+= splitString_array;
 new_str+= newline;


 job done, you can use the second version for replacing your custom delimiter 
for what ever you link, i use it for bullet point, custom hot text etc, but the 
first version is a bit easier and lets use you all the html and ascii key codes 
straight off.

Thanks for that, I thought it might be to do with escaping or unescaping.

1.Carriage returns in XML Excel sheet created using XmlDocument and XmlTextWriter


I've a routine that exports a DB query to Excel by building an
XmlDocument and saving to a XmlTextWriter. I'm having trouble with
carriage returns in a mailing address not showing up in the final Excel

What's added to the InnerText of an XmlDocument is something similar

"Name \r\nAddress1\r\nAddress2 \r\nAddress3 \r\nAddress4\r\n"

After going through the XmlTextWriter the resulting XML is:

</Data></Cell><Cell ss:StyleID="s26"><Data ss:Type="String">

And what appears in the address cell of the Excel sheet is:
Name Address1 Address 2 Address 3 Address 4

I posted a similar topic yesterday and spent much of today working on
the issue without success, trying out various combinations of:
space = "preserve" in the XML
XmlDocument.PreserveWhitespace = true
XmlTextWriter.WriteAttributeString("xml", "space", null, "preserve");

Can anyone assist?

Many thanks,

3.Carriage returns and XML

Hi everyone

I have a problem when I apply an XML Schema to a Word document. It seems 
that I cannot apply an element of type "xs:string" to two paragraphs because 
of the carriage returns. It's just applied to the first one. I'm sure I'm 
doing something wrong.
