Re: [Flashcoders] Is it possible to make AS1.0 code instantiate AS2.0 objects without compiling it under AS2.0?

2006-03-15 Thread elibol
Since you're strapped for time and can't classify the code to as2, you shouldn't even bother trying to classify it in as1 if you're having trouble converting it to as2. I recommend classifying the as1 code using as2, if you don't and use a hybrid of as1 and as2 with poorly decoupled as1 code (

Re: [FlashCoders] remove BitmapData

There is no getDepth() method for bitmapData Objects. What's the problem with keeping a refrence to your bitmapData Objects? I would argue that it's better practice to refrence them anyways, and as of now, if you do not call dispose() and just remove MovieClips with bitmapData attached, the

I tried comparing the hex values directly, but there were inaccuracies, maybe the same ones you've been having. I think since the value of a particular color precedes with a 0 even when it's below 17(0F), the preceding 0 causes a shifting in the comparison. It would, for example, cause 0x00 to

I believe the effect of a wait() function in Flash would cause an application to freeze/hang. Actionscript is a single threaded language, I don't even think a wait() type function could be implemented with sufficient practicality. Wouldn't it just stop the entire thread from executing any further,

My guess is that your swf file is probably cached in firefox, while you may have tried disabling caching in both browsers, firefox, erratically, for lack of a better analysis, caches and reloads swf files. The reason I think this is the problem is because gotoAndStop and nextFrame do not begin
