First off, thanks for all of the comments on my Class Builder ladies and gents!
It has been diffucult to stay on top of things with the lack of internet; supposedly we get our phone hooked up today and our DSL tomorrow at our new house, but I feel so… disconnected with the world. Coupled with the fact my house borders on the boonies, it’s certainly adds to the decor of my feelings.
At any rate, this Flash Panel was another learning tool used for my delvings into JSAPI. I’ve been trying to use it for all the things that I felt I couldn’t do in Flash’s authoring environment. Hopefully I’ll add more if I’m so inclined, but for now, this little tool simply allows you to mass toggle the “Export in First Frame” option for all of the symbols in the library. Since you have to manually do this via right click on each symbol, this is an insane timesaver for me, specially for non-SWC components (Flash MX files).
I have a few more ideas, but I’d love to hear more if you all have them. Hopefully this will help you not only in your work, but a FLA to learn from as well. Some things I learned:
– using LoadVars to quickly test JSAPI doesn’t work like you’d expect.
– return values from MMExecute are usually strings… I’ve yet to be able to get complex datatypes to work with easily, but then again, I’m still learning so could be doing it wrong
– I now have no idea where Flash MX 2004 puts it’s Window SWF’s. In MX, it was in your Documents and Settings folder, and whatever was in First Run was copied there… now I can’t find it. (No, haven’t searched beyond manually looking in that directory)
