Position close button for Flash Window Component

I'm using PopUpManager.createPopUp to create a popup window in Flash 8.  The close button is visible and working fine, but it is positioned toward the left edge of the popup header.  I want to position it in the standard place along the right edge.

How do I adjust the _x position for the close button?

Thanks.

that so, I always said to upload the source file, because you have no where mentioned what all tweaks you have tried to customize window title bar..

without complete description no one can suggest to correct solution.

Ok,
issue was, you no where has set the height width of the "window" instance created by using "PopUpManager.createPopUp"

Just add code given below just after the following line of code and button position issue will be fixed:

add code below this line:
myTW.addEventListener("click",windowListener);

 
//add following code:
 
windowListener.complete = function() 
{
	myTW.setSize(myTW.content._width-20,myTW.content._height+25);
};
myTW.addEventListener("complete",windowListener);

Open in new window

By default, PopUpManager.createPopUp always keep the close button on right corner..

I suggest you to try my code as per the instruction given below:

1.
Create a new FLA (actionscript 2.0)

2.
Drag an instance of Window component in Library

3.
Create a new movieClip with LinkageID "my_mc" and dont keep any instnace on stage, we will attached it into window component as windows content
make sure, it must have minimum width of 200 and minimum height of 150.

4.
Now you should have only two items in library, Window component and my_mc movieClip with linkageID "my_mc" and stage should be empty

5.
Now Just copy paste the following code on frame one and compile the FLA to see the results.

I hope all should work fine.

import mx.managers.PopUpManager;
import mx.containers.Window;
//
var my_win = PopUpManager.createPopUp(this, Window, true, {closeButton:true, contentPath:"my_mc"});
var winListener:Object = new Object();
my_win.title = "Window Title";
// close btn
winListener.click = function(evt_obj:Object)
{
	trace("close button clicked");
};
 
winListener.complete = function()
{
	// size it as per the contents
	my_win.setSize(my_win.content._width,my_win.content._height+25);
	// center it 
	my_win._x = Math.round((Stage.width-my_win._width)/2);
	my_win._y = Math.round((Stage.height-my_win._height)/2);
};
my_win.addEventListener("click",winListener);
my_win.addEventListener("complete",winListener);
//

Open in new window

Thanks Aneesh,

I am creating the popup window in a manner similar to your code.  This is why I am not sure why the close button is near the left edge of the window.  Is there a way to adjust the x position of the button via code?

aneeshchopra,

The FLA file can be found at:
https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/ee-stuff/6723-ee.zip

If you will unzip the ee.fla as well as the 2 .as classes into the same directory and test it, you will see what I mean.

Thanks for taking a look at this.

Thnaks aneeshchopra,

That worked perfectly.  There is another 500-point question posted about this exact piece of code, but a different problem with it if you are interested.  It is located at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/Q_23111934.html

Thanks again,

Gary

This solution worked perfectly.

I can now change the x position of the close button by changing the x value of the setSize method.  Is there any way to slightly adjust the y position of the button?  It would look better if it were slightly higher, but changing the second parameter in the setSize method has no effect.

Thanks.
