Setting text to overflow into another text component in flex

This was pretty easy when I've done it in html but I can't find any info on how to incorporate this into flex. I want to get this sort of thing into my app where once the text reaches the bottom it wraps underneath the bottom of the left hand image the way it does in the top product here in this html site:-
http://www.imageproduct.co.uk/acatalog/glass_mirror_tvs.html
I've tried to emulate this and I have a top left container containing all my images which is within a hbox and also within this hbox on the right is my text. The text box has it's height and width set to 100 so it takes up 100% of the h box height wise and the remainder of the width left over from the product image which resizes based on what product is selected. The  maxHeight of the h box is set to 400 (my images only go up to this size) but what I want is when the textbox exceeds this it will 'overflow' into another text box below the image/text like in that example. I have no clue how to implement this though.
Can anyone help me out?

Thanks coldMiner,
I tested that. I presume that it can be expanded to go
page1_txt, page2_txt, page3_txt (replacing test_txt and rest_txt)
and so on. And I can see how it works for the text string, but how
do I import an external text file to replace the string?
Thanks,
Art

  • Calling a view into another Dynpro Component

    Hi,
            Could you please let me know the steps involved in calling one of the view into another abap webdynrpo applications.
    Thanks,
    Kumar

    If you want to use a view from another WD Component, then you have to have a Component Usage for that other view.  Have you ever used the ALV Component?  If so this is exactly the process that you would follow.  You can read more about the techique here:

  • Making items in a List 'jump' into another List in a Flex effect/animation....

    Hello there! I need some help with effects in Flex but I
    seriosly do not know how to approach this problem. I have two List
    components both next to each other one on the left side of my
    canvas one on the right. The left List (itemList1) has been
    populated with an array of items from the server. The right List
    (itemList2) is empty. I want to populate the right List with items
    from the left List. I already have it so that its click and drag
    and drop that's simple. What I want however is so that when you
    just click on an item on the left List the item text, in a flex
    effect (or even Flash animation), 'bounces' from the left List into
    the right.
    There is an example of this in this YouTube video of the
    iphone iTunes application when you buy a song the song name bounces
    from its position on the list into the 'downloads' section -> .
    The desired effect takes place in the 30-34 second time frames.
    Is this possible at all??? Any tips/help is greatly
    appreciated.

    I dont know of a way to do this programmatically without
    having to code an animation. That being said, here's my initial
    thinking on how I would approach it:
    1) Fade the item on the source list out to alpha 0.
    2) Display an animation (load a SWF and start its position at
    the item in the source list) that moves to the target list.
    3) Fade in the item in the target list.
    Maybe others can chime in here and suggest alternative
    methods.

  • Embeding WebDynpro component into another webdynpro component

    Hi,
       I am trying to embed one (embeded) WebDynPro Component in to another(inner) . I have followed the tutorials for Server side eventing at
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/24/243ca46e1c334f8a6f8b0792656bc7/content.htm
    Here are the steps I did.
    1) Created two WebDynpro component "embeded" and "inner" components in  a project with two views embededView and innerView respectively.
    2) Defined the component usage in "embeded" component.
    3) created a viewset at "embeded" component. included embededView and innerView in the viewset.
    4) Included required controllers at embededView.
    5) Created two button at embededView and linked it to action and wrote code to create the componet using componentusage instance.
    But unfortunately i could not able se to any component created i.e the view of inner component is not visible at all.
    Could anybody have an answer to the above query.
    Regards
    Alok

    Hi Alok,
    As far i understood the scenario. You want to see/embed one webdynpro view inside another web dynpro view when you click some button in the outer web dynpro view.
    Is it correct ?
    I had the the following approach.
    >created two wen dynpro component in a project.
    >define the view for the inner component.
    > In the Outer component, i added View Container.
    > In the View Container, i embedded Interface View of inner component.
    > write some code to view this in the on action event of the button used to display the inner view.
    If you are working on the same scenario, it is one method to go

  • Feature Request: overflow text (threading text into another text box) as in InDesign

    I would like to see overflow text (threading text into another text box) as in InDesign

    Brilliant. Thanks for the reply. The file I'm using is the same one I've been using as a emplate for about 3 years now, but I've recently upgraded to Windows 8 and re-installed my copy of InDesign onto that, so I could have inadvertantly flicked one of these settings on during setup.
    I'll look through the properties or something and see if I can find the language settings.
    Thanks Steve, I appreciate your help. :-)

  • Textbox shows xml text in working file but now when loaded into another SWF

    Hi all,
    I have downloaded an xml gallery (as2) as we needed one for an old as2 file. Now I mostly use as3 but thought as I only needed to tweak it there would be no probs. Of course, it rarely works out that way. The problem is, text loaded from the xml file is displayed with its corresponding image. This works fine in the file. When I load the SWF into another SWF however, it all works EXCEPT the text doesn't show at all?? Whoever made the gallery used 'device fonts' in the textbox, I don't know if this has anything to do with it. I tried changing the textbox to dynamic and embedding characters but still nothing.
    This seems the key line -
    _root.descmc.desc.htmlText = XMLdaten[number];
    I have also tried
    _root.descmc.desc.htmlText = XMLdaten[number].firstChild;
    This traces out the correct xml data when tested so it is finding it okay.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    The problem might be in the use of the "_root"  You probably need to set _lockroot = true; in the loaded swf, otherwise the _root is that of the loading swf, not the loaded one.

  • How do I get the results of 2 text fields and put the output into another ?

    I have 2 text fields that multiply off of each other.
    My question is, is there a way to get the result of this and put it into another text field? And from that result get another result? Or do I have to get the results from a textarea?

    I have 2 text fields that multiply off of each other.I assume this really means you want to have something else multiply the contents of the two text fields. When you are using an object-oriented language, it is helpful if you consider what objects are responsible for what actions. Loose descriptions lead to confusion.
    My question is, is there a way to get the result of
    this and put it into another text field? And from
    that result get another result? Or do I have to get
    the results from a textarea?Assuming that your "text field" is a Swing text component (and not, say, an HTML text field) then it has a getText() method that returns the contents as a String. If you plan to multiply this by something then you'll want to convert it to an int or a double or maybe a BigInteger or a BigDecimal object. Are we on the right track here?

  • How can I [cmd]+A including text boxes? Or how to import one Pages document into another Pages document?

    Hi there,
    I am working on my thesis with several Pages documents (for the first time). And I really have searched all over the Internet to find an answer to exactly my question but I cannot find it.
    First my question was: How can I import one Pages document into another one? I found the answer on that (I think) and there is nothing else than just make a new section and copy/paste it in.
    But then another issue pops up: I cannot [cmd]+A my whole document including the texboxes to paste it in the other Pages document. Then the document will be paste without the textboxes (and I have quite a lot of them in that document) and the text will not be at the right place.
    So please explain to me: How I can combine two Pages documents and keep them exactly the way they are? Is that even possible?
    I thank you so much in advance!

    Hi Fruhulda,
    I have already tried to mark the textboxes in line but that did not work, and besides then the text and the boxes won't be at the rigt places either. Thank you for your reply .

  • Acrobat X Pro makes text disappear from a page when I insert that page into another PDF

    Does the inserted page have a lot of markup? I do not think the markup will insert.

    Well, I've already solved one of the two issues
    In order to display the icons on my buttonbar buttons, I just needed to point at {hostComponent.data.data} instead of {hostComponent.data}. I'm not sure why, but {hostComponent.data} in my skin class is a handle on my instance of ButtonBarButton, not its "data" property. Any explanation is welcomed
    I still have got the first issue though. Oddly enough my design works if I put an mx Image instead of the spark BitmapImage for the client logo. That will do the trick for the moment but I'd prefer to deliver a 100% pure spark component in my prototype, and I can see no reason why BitmapImage works inside my ButtonBarButtons and doesn't otherwise...

  • Passing text component to methods

    I have a method that reads a file and output puts it to a JTextArea. Everything is working fine but I am wondering if I can pass an object from a class above JTextArea (like TextComponent). Looking for a generic feel with whatever text based component I passed...will this make a difference with lightweight and heavyweigth components (swing vs. awt)? Or even streams for that matter? Will byte and character streams act differently?
    What is the super class of all text based gui components?
    What is the super class of all streams?
    Yes I have read the java api doc on streams and using swing! Thanks

    You have me until
    Everything is working fine but I am wondering if I can pass an object from a class above JTextArea (like TextComponent).What are you asking for here?
    You want to know if you can pass an object to a method? Yes.
    You want to know if you can modify a class further up in JTextArea's hierarchy, so it has a method that passes an object to another method? Yes, by extending it and implementing the functionality you want.
    Looking for a generic feel with whatever text based component I passed...will this make a difference with lightweight and heavyweigth components (swing vs. awt)?Not sure what you were asking for in the first place, so I'm unable to help you with this one.
    Or even streams for that matter? Will byte and character streams act differently?If you're asking, "When I pass a stream through a method, will it act differently when I use it inside that method?", then I can answer no, it will not. You are passing your stream by reference.
    class MyClass {
       private Object anObject;
       public MyClass() {
          anObject = new Object();
          MySecondClass secondClass = new MySecondClass(anObject);
    class MySecondClass {
       private Object theSameObject;
       public MyClass(Object argument) {
          theSameObject = argument;
    }In the above example, anObject was created in MyClass, and passed to the constructor of MySecondClass. The field theSameObject in MySecondClass is set to point to the Object passed into its constructor, which just happens to be the Object anObject created in MyClass. anObject was created in MyClass. theSameObject is essentially the exact same Object in that it references (points to) anObject.
    If I'm wrong feel free to call me on it, java gurus.
    What is the super class of all text based gui components?AWT or Swing?
    If it's AWT, look up the API for an AWT text component, try TextField, and look at the class hierarchy.
    If it's Swing, do the same for JTextField. You can easily do some detective work and figure out the super classes of 'text based gui components'.
    What is the super class of all streams?You can do the same as above for streams as well.
    Yes I have read the java api doc on streams and using swing! ThanksIf you've read the API docs on streams and Swing, then why did you ask the last two questions? Not trying to offend, it just seems kind of wierd.

  • Word processing within a text component

    Although this is a potentially great application, I am at present prevented from using it to create a website due to the lack, as far as I can determine, of any form of processing individual text within the text components e.g. making individual words or word groups bold or italic or giving them COLORS.
    I have large informatory text areas on my pages which need this sort of processing in order to avoid client eyestrain as well as my own.
    Of course one can get around this to some extent by using multiple components but for long texts this quickly becomes very tedious and error prone, especially if one wants to copy from another source.
    The Static Text component, which I presume is meant for this sort of text, in it's present simple form allows word wrap but no line formatting. The basic Text Area component (multiple lines) has no word wrap but does allow line formatting. However when one sets the Read Only property, it seems that any self created line formatting is duly destroyed. This is strangely not the case with the old Standard Mutliline Text Area component.
    I may be missing something but if not I hope that these features may yet be incorporated.
    Regards,
    Dave

    You can use static text to render pure HTML, just set "escape" property to false.
    Note that the HTML text must be well former.
    Regards.

  • Work with JTable cell (check input, set text color)

    I have a JTable with data
    The task is:
    User inputs some data into cell
    I want to check his input string for equatily with other values in column
    For example, I have these values in column:
    1.example
    2.exercise
    3.execute
    User inputs word "execution" in the same column
    until user inputs "executi" his input string should be red.
    What event I have to listen to if I want to get user input string?
    Also a question:
    Is there any opportunity to work with cell row (copy it to another JTable) ?

    i think you should use cell editor as textfield (although that is default for jtable) and then implements document listener and set text color in insert update method.
    try this out :-)
