Flash Designtime vs runtime issue? Content missing?
Posted on 2009-05-20
Hey guys, please bare with me....
I am still using Macromedia Flash MX (lol ye I know) but its awesome just for basic animations that we do from time to time....
I have recently been tasked with updating a client website that seems to ahve been developed in Flash CS3... So I downloaded the trial of CS4 to check out if i can help the client out.
I have altered what needs to be altered..... the problem I am having now, is that there are moving elements following the mouse on the first page... in the FLASH IDE the 5 sections are showing correclty with a number for each section... 1,2,3,4,5
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |
All looks good, when publishing, the whole site is fine... except the section numbers are now all 0...
| 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |
I really don;t even knwo where to start looking, it does not look like the number elements are dynamic, cause they show right in the IDE, only at runtime does it show the 0's.
I am really an action script n00b although I am an MS Cert. Developer... so I'm sure I could figure it out if only where to start looking at what might possibly be wrong...?
A few details:
I have tried keeping the cs3 file format.... no luck..
The published settings are set to use action script 2... when I set it to use 3, no buttons work on the compiled flash
Any ideas where to start looking? This seems to have been a template that someone edited and its really crazy in nested elements... some elements are as deep as 10 levels..! So its really a crows nest... :-)
