I was just wondering if anyones come across a problem similar
to the one below, and could possibly provide a solution. I'll try
my best to explain what it is I'm trying to achieve.
Basically I'm building a html creator in flash that allows
users to create a web page comprised of text, images, video and an
mp3 player, the user builds the page using a toolbox where they can
drag on images text boxes and components. I've managed to build the
basic interface, and its more or less outputting a html page, and
providing the user with a preview of how the page will look inside
the flash interface. The way the flash preview is working is by
storing all attributes of the seperate page assetts (width, height,
imageURL etc) inside an array, a function is then running through
the array and attaching movieclips to the stage and arranging them
in the order they were added.
The main issue I'm having is with components, I'm using
components for the videos and mp3 player, but whenever a user adds
one of these components, the asset previously added seems to
inherit the components height, which is causing havoc with my div
movieclips, it only ever seems to happen when a component is
positioned dragged onto the template. Also I've noticed the video
component comes complete with a crazy width that only seems to
trigger when I perfom a rollover function on it??? Has anybody come
across this kind of issue before, or can shed any light on what I
could be doing wrong?
