Benicar 10mg Pills $131.00

ActionScript 2.0

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I’ve always been an advocate of naming Flash elements meaningfully — everything from timeline layers to Library assets (including Library folder names!).  If a FLA has any complexity at all, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 it’s simply cruel not to.  Yes, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 cruel.  If you’ve worked on complex FLAs without named assets, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 you’ll know that’s not too harsh an assessment.  ;)   Sure, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 it takes a bit more time to tack on expressive labels everywhere, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 but after a while, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 the effort becomes second nature, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 and the payoff is significant.  Recently, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 this habit led to an unexpected benefit for me. 

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I was working on a presentational tool for a client who wanted ActionScript kept to a minimum.  This FLA, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 when finished, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 was supposed to be “easily editable by a designer, benicar 10mg pills $131.00” and “not ‘scary’ to someone who doesn’t know how to program.”  To make things interesting, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 this tool was actually fairly complex, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 involving numerous — we’re talking hundreds — of company-specific terms whose definitions were to appear as tool tips when a term was rolled over.  Normally, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I would have put all these terms and their definitions into an XML file or database and created their text fields at runtime.  Actually, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 in order to allow for rollover behavior, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 each text field would have to be wrapped in a movie clip, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 as the TextField class doesn’t feature a rollover event; in any case, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 all perfectly do-able with ActionScript.  For this project, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 though, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 each term (meaning, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 each text field wrapped in a movie clip) and each tool tip (same set up) needed to be present in the Library.  As you can imagine, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I named these assets dutifully.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 Library symbol names for the terms (usually a short phrase) were labeled after the pattern txt Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet — an arbitrary prefix txt followed by the first few words of the phrase.  Tool tip symbols were named the same, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 except the prefix txt became tip.  This made it easy to see term / tool tip pairings in the Library, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 as they’d show up one after the other.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I did allow myself the luxury of attaching tool tips to the Stage at runtime.  The designer wouldn’t have to know how they got to the Stage, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 only that txt Etc symbols were paired with tip Etc symbols.  If a typo was discovered, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 or if text color, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 font, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 or content was supposed to changed, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 the designer would simply have to locate the relevant asset(s) in the Library for editing.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 Now, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 to be able to assign functions to each term’s MovieClip.onRollOver event, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 each term would naturally require an instance name.  I decided on a very similar pattern for instance names, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 basically just camel casetxtLoremIpsumDolorSitAmet.  This is where it got a little interesting.  I certainly didn’t want to burden the designer with having to wire up event handlers …

txtTermA.onRollOver = function() {
  // code here
txtTermB.onRollOver = function() {
  // code here
txtTermC.onRollOver = function() {
  // code here

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 … so I made sure to nest each group of terms inside a container movie clip.  In this way, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 I could target these parent clips with my own ActionScript and assign event handlers dynamically, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 as discussed in “How to Reference Objects Dynamically.”

for (var clip:String in parentClip) {
  var mc:MovieClip = parentClip[clip];
  if (typeof(mc) == "movieclip") {
    if ((mc._name).indexOf("txt") > -1) {
      // code here

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 See what’s going on, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 here?  The loop cycles among all objects inside parentClip, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 which is the instance name of a movie clip that contains potentially dozens of text field movie clips.  An arbitrarily named variable, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 mc, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 is set to a particular object in parentClip by way of the array access operator ([]).  This dynamic reference, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 mc, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 is checked to see if it’s indeed a movie clip, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 as the parent clip might also contain other objects.  Finally, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 mc’s MovieClip._name property is run against String.indexOf() to see if its instance name contains the letters txt.  If so, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 bingo:  we know this is one of the movie clip–wrapped terms that needs a tool tip.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 Now.  In this dynamic roll-up, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 how could I possibly associate each term with its correlating tool tip?  Each tool tip (that is, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 each tool tip text field wrapped in a movie clip) needs to have a Linkage identifier.  It’s the Linkage identifier that allows it to be pulled from the Library at runtime.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 It occurred to me that careful, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 consistent asset naming could be put to very good use, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 here.  I based each tool tip’s Linkage ID on the same camel case format I used for the terms’ instance names; that is, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 tool tip Linkage IDs were tipLoremIpsumDolorSitAmet.  This meant I could use that mc._name property for two reasons:  first, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 to check if the given object was a term; second, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 to pull the necessary tool tip from the Library.

Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 String.substring() returns an abbreviated string from a given string.  By using this …


Benicar 10mg pills $131.00 … I was able to pull all characters after the first three of each term clip’s instance name.  I could then simply precede those characters with the string “tip” to locate the right tool tip:

// bunches of tool tip code, benicar 10mg pills $131.00 not shown
mcToolTip.attachMovie("tip" + mc._name.substring(3), benicar 10mg pills $131.00 "tip", benicar 10mg pills $131.00 1);
