[Flashcoders] FLV Captioning Component not clearing old captions

2010-04-08 Thread Matt S.
So I'm using the FLV Captioning Component for a video player, and it's working great, except for one problem: There's a next video button that can be clicked at any time, to jump to the next video. Each video has its own captions xml file. If the next video button is clicked before the current

Have any of you taken on the challenge of learning Objective-C (or any C-based language), coming from an AS/Scripting background? I came to AS3 from a designer origin, taking the route from design to HTML/CSS/Javascript to AS's 1,2 and 3, so while I'm pretty comfortable in an oop/coding

Unless you need to assign a name or ID number to the heart, eg: heart.name = heart+myCounter; or new Heart(myCounter); (in which myCounter then gets saved within heart as idNum or whatever). I guess it depends on whether the hearts just sit quietly once added or will need to perform their own
