Hi,

I have a dynamic textfield in flash, I put some html content here.
I would like to show finger mouse cursor over every <a href="#">link</a> in this textfield.
How this could be done?

Thank you very much!

You can check the flash by using hittest() to see what under the mouse in the flash and change the cursor accordingly.

First question is have you tried using the Flash cursor behavior in the library.  This might solve that problem otherwise, I think MediaMacros is correct you will have to change the cursor from flash with something Like


getUrl("Lingo:_player.cursor(280)"); //change to the finger cursor

getUrl("Lingo:_player.cursor(0)"); //change to the arrowcursor

with the hit test.  I don't remember there being any onMouseOver for the textfields though (especialy for some subtext).  I hope the mouse cursor works for you.

Guys, you'll be laught a lot :)
I just looked at the direcrtor's mx2004 behavior library and found behavior named "Flash Cursor". It does everything we need about obeying the Flash mouse cursor!

The main idea is based on the getflashProperty("", #cursor) function, take a closer look:

on setCursor(me)
 
  tFlashCursor = pSprite.getflashProperty("", #cursor)
  --  Return values...
  --  0: No cursor
  --  1: Arrow
  --  2: Hand with finger
  --  3: Hand
  --  4: I Beam
 
  case tFlashCursor of
    0: tDirectorCursor = 200
    1: tDirectorCursor =  -1
    2: tDirectorCursor = 280
    3: tDirectorCursor = 260
    4: tDirectorCursor =   1
    otherwise:
      tDirectorCursor = pSprite.cursor
  end case
 
  if pPrevCursor <> tDirectorCursor then
   
    cursor( tDirectorCursor )
    pPrevCursor = tDirectorCursor
   
  end if
 
end setCursor


I'm happy more then ever! I'll forget about getUrl("Lingo:_player.cursor(280)") in 20 minutes :)

He,he.  Yeah thats funny.  The magic happens here...
tFlashCursor = pSprite.getflashProperty("", #cursor)

This basically just asks Flash to tell it which cursor its using.  Hitting myself for not thinking of that... ;)
