Hi Everybody

I have a selectable textarea with black text.
I made a engine that changes the color of the words selected in red.
Now i need to store all the text in red into a variable.
Do you know if there is a method to do this?

How do you change te font color? When you select your text, push it inside an array element, for example..

onClipEvent(mouseUp){
      myFocus = Selection.getFocus();
      if(myFocus == "_level0.instance1.myText"){
            // Creo il formato per la selezione
            myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
            mioColore=eval("_parent._parent.colore"+_parent._parent.laSezione);
            myTextFormat.color = mioColore;
      
            inizio=selection.getBeginIndex();
            fine=selection.getEndIndex();
      
            _parent.myText.setTextFormat (inizio, fine, myTextFormat);
      }
}

I though to add this:
mySel = new Array();
mySel.push(inizio,fine);
_parent._parent.selectionArray.push(mySel);

but the problem is that the user could select the same text more times .... or can select a part of the text already selected... do you understand?

So I think that the best thing to do is to check all the text at the end and store the red one... but i don't' really know if this is possibile.

sono io.. :)

Ascolta, questa è la prima cosa che mi è venuta in mente. Sicuramente non è la migliore (è contorta, e vedo che c'è un semplice calcolo matematico dietro da dedurre), ma intanto basta a capire che direzione prendere. Cancella il tuo movieclip (non serve), e nello stesso frame in cui hai messo il campo di testo, scrivi:

this.myTextFormat = new TextFormat();
//this.myTextFormat.color = this._parent.colore[this._parent.laSezione];
this.myTextFormat.color = 0xFF0000;
this.origColor = this.myText.getTextFormat(0,1).color;

this.onMouseUp = function()
{
      if (Selection.getFocus() == "_level0.instance1.myText")
      this.myText.setTextFormat(Selection.getBeginIndex(), Selection.getEndIndex(), this.myTextFormat);
};
this.searchForEnd = function(index)
{
      for(var i = index; i < this.myText.text.length; i++){
            var col = this.myText.getTextFormat(i, i + 1).color;
            if(col == this.origColor)return i;
      }
      return this.myText.text.length;
};
bottone_btn.onRelease = function()
{
      var p = this._parent;
      p.selectionArray = [];
      for(var i = 0; i < p.myText.text.length; i++){
            var col = p.myText.getTextFormat(i, i + 1).color;
            if(col != p.origColor){
                  var e = p.searchForEnd(i);
                  p.selectionArray.push(p.myText.text.substring(i, e));
                  i = e;
            }
      }
};

Ciao Nega

sembra che il tutto funzioni... ti ringrazio

Ho un'altra semplice domanda.
Con MX non ho mai lavorato molto.
Metti che ho una timeline con un keyframe ogni dieci frame ( naturalmente con delgi stop()).
Con dei pulsanti do il gotoAndStop ("frameLabel").
Se volessi usare il metodo :

button.onRelease=function(){
  gotoAndStop ("frameLabel").
}

devo necessariamente scriverlo ogni dieci keyframe per ogni bottone??
oppure c'e' un metodo piu comodo??


P.S.
Siccome sono nuovo di questo forum... mi dici come funziona coi punti???
ora che mi hai risposto ti dovrei dare dei punti???

ciao
