Hello, I'm giving a try on FlashDevelop with Flex SDK, and a lot of things are new to me . My study background is on Graphic Design, so I know little about programming.
One of the reasons I´m migrating to FD it is that I would like to build my own libraries (menus , slideshows, and other stuff) and gain productivity as well as flexibility. For example I´ve been creating animations and menus for a lot of websites, and so far I´m doing it like this: I use a class I´ve made called SimpleMenu (which I copy, paste and make changes for each project) in the FLA file I have a movieclip (which I also copy, paste and make changes for each project) of a menu Item and sometimes also the menuSubItem, if needed. and in the document class of the main .fla file I write something like that: public var menuWhatever:SimpleMenu = new SimpleMenu; // params: path, xPos, yPos, widthOffset, heightOffset, nColumns menuWhatever.createSimpleMenu(String(menuXMLPath), 5, 143, 16, 5, 8); The point is: I feel that copy and pasting code and MovieClips from other projects is not quite the best practice regarding ActionScript. I believe that I could do this kind of stuff in a more efficient and organized way by building my own components (SWC files? ) and associating them to classes, and so on, but I have many doubts and feel kind of lost and a little overwhelmed. I would like to get some advices and tips on how to build my own libraries and components, taking as start point this way of getting things done that I-ve briefly described... That´s it, thank you in advance!
