    IMPORTANT - numerical parameters don't work

      Hello Adobe.


      I've recently downloaded the Flash CS5 and we wanted to upgrade license, but we experience VERY bad problem.

       

      Steps:

      1. Create blank FLA AS 3.0 movie.

      2. Add to first frame (stage), for example, TextArea component and name it "xxx".

      3. Set in "Properties" window in "Component Parameters" tab:

      text - "hello world"

      maxChars - 10

      4. Add script to first frame with next code:

      trace(xxx.text);

      trace(xxx["text"]);

      trace(xxx.maxChars);

      trace(xxx["maxChars"]);

      xxx.maxChars = 20;

      trace(xxx["maxChars"]);

      trace(xxx.maxChars);

      5. Test movie. You will get next output:

      hello world

      hello world

      0 - WHY THIS IS NOT 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      0 - WHY THIS IS NOT 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      20

      20

       

      SO NUMERICAL PARAMETERS DON'T WORK! I not a new to Flash. Have worked more than 5 years with this. Also we've tested such behaviour with latest (downloaded today and yesterday) packages from OFFICIAL www.adobe.com website. They are:

      DESIGN PREMIUM CS5

      FLASH CS5 PRO

      we've tested this behavoiur on different machines, with different operating systems. THE SAME - NO WAY!!!!

       

      PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE ASAP! and please reply to this thread with DATE of FUTURE FIX! thanks!
