Re: [Flashcoders] hen's teeth...

2010-01-04 Thread Jamie S
I started with ActionScript and learned some PHP along the way. I found PHP pretty simple to learn but I always found it tedious to work with. I eventually picked up Ruby and really fell in love with it. The concepts were easy to learn coming from an AS background. Recently I've started to learn

Re: [Flashcoders] can Flex classes be used within (Flash CS3) along with ActionScript?

2008-11-26 Thread Jamie S
Most flex classes have dependancies in the Flex Framework which means that before you know it you are importing half of the framework to get one class or component to work. But here's a good blog post that describes how to import the Flex classes you need into a swc so at least you can keep it

[Flashcoders] How do you tell if an Object is dynamic?

2008-01-04 Thread Jamie S
I ran into a particular situation where i had a function that took an Object as a parameter. I needed that Object to be an actual Object i.e. dynamic because the function was going to add properties to it. But since everything in ActionScript is an Object I had trouble enforcing this. Is there a
