Customizing comboBox component



  • 1. Local Connection or?
    Hello I am designing a site that is flash and html it has to have 3 movies in the shape of a "n" - flash on left, top and right and html in the middle. This is the way the client wants it so they can update and the customer is always right. And I dont know much about local connection but I know that it can pass one varible but i was having trouble passing more more than one option. I could have it with many flash movies where at each html page it would load new movies with the appropriate buttons or whatever. So what would be the best way to go about designing this site with many flash movies, local connection, or is there a better way out there. Please any help would be greatly apprieciated.

    I have a button that when pressed attaches an instance of a movie clip. When a certain frame is reached in the attached movie clip another movie clip is attached within this clip. However, this movie clip does not play - it always stops on the first frame. Any ideas? Thanks.

Customizing comboBox component

Postby jmmo » Sat, 21 Feb 2004 23:18:24 GMT

I notice many of Flash's components have a certain style to them -which I dislike.

For example, is it possible to alter the rounded edges of the comboBox component? If so, how?

On a UI Component, right click on it and click edit. Hide and unhide layers until you find what you want to change

1.Customizing ComboBox Component

Hello, does anyone know how to customize the actual box portion of the comboBox

2.Customizing the ComboBox component

Im trying to customize ComboBox component. Everything is ok except the scrolling part. It looks so 3D. I just want to have a flat scroller without any effects. Is it possible to do this ?

3.Customize combobox to display more than text MX 2004

In the previous version of Flash MX, I was able to extend the ComboBoxItemClass so I could show an icon prior to the actual text.  The icon was different for each state (ie selectable, invalid, selected, etc).  More specifically, this was done by creating/registering a new class and modifying the layoutContent method of the prototype.

I've tried several resources to see how I can do this with 2004 but have come up empty.  I have seen an article that applied to the list and datagrid controls, which use the CellRenderer class, but this does not appear to be applicable to ComboBoxes.

So my question is, how do I modify/extend/whatever a combobox component so that more than just the actual text labels are displayed?

4.Customizing Combobox

Ok, so I've got my combo box to look mostly as i want it, but there's still a 
few things I'm having problems on. I've looked and looked and can't find 
anything on how to do it (at least anything that makes sense to me!).

 So my two things I'm having problems with are my selection fontSize and my 

 Border first. I got the border to show up by doing this.borderStyle = "solid"; 
It worked, except I need to change the colour of my border. Is there an easy 
way to do this? (PLEEEASE!)

 My fontSize looks GREAT in my drop down and is exactly how I want it...however 
it seems that changing the properties of my combobox colour, backgroundcolour, 
fontSize and such seems to have NO effect on the actual look of the comboBox. I 
have sized down my combo box to be smaller than the default fontSize of the 
selected label in a combobox, so now my selected label looks like crap cause 
half of the text is getting cut off. How do i change the fontSize of the 
selected label?

 That's it for now. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated as i can't 
seem to find anythign that makes sense to me on how to do this. I suck at 
styling things, I was never any good at getting my CSS files to work right and 
I turned to flash cause i hate HTML!

5.Customize ComboBox with Gradient Background


Does anyone out there know how to skin a ComboBox with a gradient in the 
background of the text area, using the Halo Theme? I've looked everywhere 
in the class files for instances of the DrawRoundRect function to see where 
the fill color is determiend, but can't seem to find where the rounded 
rectangle is actually drawn.

Any help would be appreciated. TIA
