Could someone check out the way the object are created? All the classes work independently but somewhere I think I am messing the display up when I call a new Class.


I have two classes: one creates and loades a combobox and another class that creates and

loads an UILoader .

They both work fie independently.

In these classes below If I have the fileName and the Key in the UILoader class hard coded

all the Components and the Images display.

However, If I send the fileName and the Key from the CBMaorComponent class (cbMajor

Combobox )
when the selection is made there is no display.


The code traces that the UILoader is loaded with the proper URL's from the XML but no

Images show up on the mcContent(movieClip).

This is in the actions frame in the .fla

import flash.display.MovieClip;


import chromatic.load_files.UIImageComponent;
import chromatic.load_files.TLImageComponent;
import chromatic.load_files.CBMajorComponent;
import chromatic.load_files.CBMinorComponent;



var uiImageComponent:UIImageComponent=new UIImageComponent();
var tlImageComponent:TLImageComponent=new TLImageComponent();
var cbMajorComponent:CBMajorComponent=new CBMajorComponent();
var cbMinorComponent:CBMinorComponent=new CBMinorComponent();



cbMajorComponent=new CBMajorComponent();
addChild(cbMajorComponent.cbMajor);

cbMinorComponent=new CBMinorComponent();
addChild(cbMinorComponent.cbMinor);

uiImageComponent=new UIImageComponent();
mcContent.addChild(uiImageComponent.uiImage);

tlImageComponent=new TLImageComponent();
mcContent.addChild(tlImageComponent.tlImage);

This is the UILoader class and it displays an image if I hard code the fileName and key

needed to get the URL from the XML.

but when I send it parameters from the CBMajorComponent class (combobox) it gets the
proper fileName and key variables but it will not display.

package chromatic.load_files{
	import fl.containers.UILoader;
	import flash.display.MovieClip;
	import flash.events.Event;
	import fl.data.DataProvider;
	import flash.net.URLLoader;
	import flash.net.URLRequest;
	import flash.net.*;

	public class UIImageComponent extends MovieClip {
		public var uiImage:UILoader=new UILoader();
		public var dp:DataProvider=new DataProvider();
		private var dataLoader:URLLoader=new URLLoader();
		private var theXML:XML=new XML();

		private var evtIndex:int;
		private var evtName:String;
		private var sel:Number=-1;
		private var xmlList:XMLList;
		public function UIImageComponent():void {
			
		}
		public function init(fileName,key):void {			
			this.fileName=fileName;
			this.key=key;
			setFileName(fileName);
			setKey(key);
			setupComponent();		}
		public function setupComponent():void{			
			uiImage.x=100;
			uiImage.y=-20;
			uiImage.width=190;
			uiImage.height=200;
			listURL=new URLRequest(getFileName());
			dataLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE,dataLoaded);
			dataLoader.load(listURL);
			theXML=new XML(listURL);
			theXML.ignoreWhitespace=true;			
		}
		function dataLoaded(evt:Event):void {
			theXML=XML(dataLoader.data);
			trace("///// in ui fileName= "+fileName+" //////////////////");
			sourceValue=theXML.key[getKey()].swfFile;
			var request:URLRequest=new URLRequest(sourceValue);			
			uiImage.load(request);
			trace("///// in ui  key= "+sourceValue+" //////////////////");
			uiImage.source=sourceValue;
			
		}
		/*
		private function selectedName():void {		
		}
		*/
		private function changeEvent(evt:Event):void {
			trace(" You selected a key");
		}
		public function setFileName(fileName):void {
			this.fileName=fileName;

			return fileName;
		}
		public function setKey(key):void {
			this.key=key;
		}
		public function getKey():String {
			return key;
		}
	}
}

This is the class that laods the combobox and in the selectedName method it sends the

UIImageComponent class (UILoader) the fileName and the key when a selection is made.
And that class excepts it and
loads the source derived from the XML but again no display of the selection made.

Thank you for your time.

I didn't want to make it really confusing yet It may be relavant to add that I have two

more classes

(all four work at the same independent of each other but no passing of args(parameters)

mind you.


These two classes are identical to the first two but the combobox when selectedItem calls

it's CHANGE event(selectedName).

it sends the same fileName and key var. to the TLImageComponent class

(note: the combo box selection is irrelevent in these classes no matter what the selection

is it's function is to solely send the fileName and key and tht tlImage always does the

same thing.tlImage is the TileBox()/for now.)

I re wrote all the classes . could someone find the error?
the UILoader is not displaying
no code is in the timeline and the Main is the document class.

Please do not flood the forum, you should just state in new post of existing thread you made changes and show the changes, not to create new thread for purpose of showing these changes

Ok. I apologize I just worked all day on it and the code was drasiically changed and I thought it would be clearer to start over.

I did find it thought it was a matter of one word. I had to add the cb class object to the display list so the tilelist could be added.

addChild(cbMajorComponent);

instead of

addChild(cbMajorComponent.cbMajor

I realize that this probably isn't the correct forum for this question but all the code is already here.
(If it could be moved that would be fine).

My question is concerning Super.
If someone is farmiliar with Super . Is it possible to get someone to look at the first and second block of code only and get me started on how I would approach the concept of using Super. Because the second two blocks of code are almost identical. and I plan on creating two more blocks of code to create almost the same senerio.
(a combobox calling a child.)
Thanks
