Well, here’s what im trying to do :o
I want people to be able to draw on a board and them be able to save their work.
So far this is what i’ve done: http://aim.alanpowell.net/testing/draw.html
(still in testing stages, to draw and view your drawing again, you have to delete temorary internet files or it’ll show you the last picture you drew b/c its caching it)
The way thats done is by recording each and every x,y coordinate, and well, as you’ll see, it gets kinda slow if you draw on it a while.
Well, then I came up w/ another idea, have a grid like board for ppl to draw on. What I did was I made a movie clip (2 pixels by 2 pixels) and using some actionScript I made it so you can click and it’ll fill in the movie backgroud to the color you choose, but, the MC is 2px by 2px (very small), so to create a drawing board, i’m duplicating it manyMANY MANY!!! times!!!
well, uhh…i can get it to duplicate 25 by 25 times (rows/colums - creats 425 duplicates!!) which creats a 50pixel by 50pixel grid. Pretty small size…but if i try to make more duplicates, Flash freezes, for obvious memory limitations.
So, is there another way to create a grid like drawing interface using the drawing API? or do you have any suggestions? or have u just stopped reading by now? :o
