Caspar Flash Templates that forces upper case

Hi all you smart Caspar users,

I struggle with getting my template to force uppercase text. I've created an actionscript on frame 1, that converts all text to upper case, and it works as expected, when I create a Flash Movie, but it doesn't when I create the Caspar Template.

I've attached my template.

What am I doing wrong?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Caspar Flash Templates that forces upper case


sorry, but I don't have a flash development enviroment on my system.
Could you please post just your code in

Code: Select all

[code] tags

But I guess I already see the problem. There is no as3 file in your package. As I said before, you need to overwrite setData() and that should be done in a separate as code file which you then import. Don't put your code into the timeline. I'm not a flash developer, but what I read in the forum, this is a common error.
