Public Methods

 MethodDefined By
  
Constructs an Image instance.
Image
 Inherited
childChanged(resizedChild:DisplayObject = null):Boolean
Notifies the UIComponent that one or more of its children has changed in a manner that may affect this object's layout.
UIComponent
 Inherited
destroy():void
Call this method when you want to have your object collected by the garbage collector.
UIComponent
 Inherited
Returns the size options for the given control.
UIComponent
 Inherited
Calling this method results in a call to the components validateDisplayList() method before the display list is rendered.
UIComponent
 Inherited
Calling this method results in a call to the components validateProperties() method before the display list is rendered.
UIComponent
 Inherited
measure(availableWidth:Number, availableHeight:Number):LayoutMeasurement
This method calls doMeasure() in order to calculate the preferred size of the control.
UIComponent
 Inherited
setActualSize(w:Number, h:Number):void
Sets the width and height of the object without setting the explicitWidth and explicitHeight.
UIComponent
  
setImage(image:Object):void
Sets the image.
Image
 Inherited
setLayoutBounds(bounds:Rectangle):void
Sets the receiver's size and location to the rectangular area specified by the arguments.
UIComponent
 Inherited
setPosition(x:Number, y:Number):void
Sets the x and y position of the component.
UIComponent
 Inherited
Validates the display list of the component by calling the updateDisplayList().
UIComponent
 Inherited
Validates the component immediately by calling validateProperties(), validateSizes(), and validateDisplayList() if necessary.
UIComponent
 Inherited
Validates the properties of the component by calling the commitProperties() method.

 Inherited
flushCache():void
Invoked as part of parentLayoutChanged.
UIComponent
 Inherited
onAdded():void
Called when the instance is added to the stage.

onRemoved():void
Called when the instance is removed from the stage.

Property Detail

bitmapData


bitmapData:BitmapData


Implementation

public function get bitmapData():BitmapData
public function set bitmapData(value:BitmapData):void

cache


cache:ImageCache

Gets or sets the ImageCache object to use to cache the image.


Implementation

public function get cache():ImageCache
public function set cache(value:ImageCache):void

fixedAspectRatio


fixedAspectRatio:Boolean


Implementation

public function get fixedAspectRatio():Boolean
public function set fixedAspectRatio(value:Boolean):void

hAlign


hAlign:String


Implementation

public function get hAlign():String
public function set hAlign(value:String):void

pixelSnapping


pixelSnapping:String

Controls whether or not the Bitmap object is snapped to the nearest pixel. The PixelSnapping class includes possible values:

  • PixelSnapping.NEVER—No pixel snapping occurs.
  • PixelSnapping.ALWAYS—The image is always snapped to the nearest pixel, independent of transformation.
  • PixelSnapping.AUTO—The image is snapped to the nearest pixel if it is drawn with no rotation or skew and it is drawn at a scale factor of 99.9% to 100.1%. If these conditions are satisfied, the bitmap image is drawn at 100% scale, snapped to the nearest pixel. Internally, this value allows the image to be drawn as fast as possible using the vector renderer.


Implementation

public function get pixelSnapping():String
public function set pixelSnapping(value:String):void

smoothing


smoothing:Boolean

Controls whether or not the bitmap is smoothed when scaled. If true, the bitmap is smoothed when scaled. If false, the bitmap is not smoothed when scaled.


Implementation

public function get smoothing():Boolean
public function set smoothing(value:Boolean):void

vAlign


vAlign:String


Implementation

public function get vAlign():String
public function set vAlign(value:String):void
