Hi Alex, ok, so you said I need to create a data structure for linear-gradient that should be handled in each SWF and JS codes. But don't know from where I can start, maybe some guidance on where are located the other data structures and if there's one similar to check (and maybe copy in part) I think it could be the best to start with something is like a black box to me.
