How can I designate that when an object is rendered instead
of a solid color it uses a pattern?
We are using flash and XML to render a web graphic
dynamically in real time based on a user query. If the results of
the query address their needs versus what they own those areas of
need that are addressed are filled with color. But in some cases
the results will provide coverage, in some areas, that duplicates
what they already have, meaning there is overlap. In those
situations for those coverage areas of the graphic we want to fill
the rectangle or shape with a pattern such as a cross hatch or
diagonal lines. This will allow someone to easily discern that the
coverage area is redundant or duplicates something they already
have. Also, this way, by using a pattern when it prints out in
black and white the duplicate areas will have a different
appearance then the other covered areas that are solid filled. Can
this be done using Flash? Any suggestions on how? Thanks.
