Colors For Questions

I get lots of questions about actionscript and QuickBox2D. Too many questions to answer really. But if you enter 30 colors into this project I’m working on I’ll help you by answering any question (within reason of course) and possibly giving you a code snippet related to your question.

To enter colors use you’ll be using a simple color picker app. Select a color, give it a name “dark red, maroon” etc.. and Then post in the comments that you did so… You’ll need to enter a contributer name as well… you can use a handle or your real name… doesn’t matter. So go back to this post and watch how to go about adding colors. If you have a question about how to enter stuff, here is the place to ask it….

    I’m interested in stranger ones like … taking the color green and writing leaf green. Or taking pink and writing cotton candy color… etc…

    I think you could generate a ton of colors using “noun color(ed)”; actual colors could be sampled from 1st 100 image search results using your recent color detection code (maybe modified a bit).

    Then again the initial call for input does suggest human contributions rather than raw automated machine power.

    I can’t tell how many I did, but I think I did around 30?

    Quickbox2d question for you:

    (Skin has Textfield inside that is populated and manipulated )
    when I add the skin name from the library, everything works fine, but when I instantiate it and apply some properties to it prior to calling it a skin, it seems to break. Is there a way I can target properties on the skin after adding to the box?


    thanks sir.

    Hey Jon … you just need to use the “userData” property of the quickObject that your textField is in:

    var thing:QuickObject = sim.addBox({x:10, y:10, skin:TextFieldBoxSkin});

    thing.userData.myTextField.text = “hello”

    Let me know if that does the trick for you

    Did the trick indeed!

    yeah we’re going to human generated route first although there are some cool algorithmic possibilities for computer generated color names.
