Lets use this thread for discussion of Flash and action scripting.

If anyone has questions about the language or the program 'Adobe Flash', someone may be able to help you. Also, for those who know alot about it, can give the rest of us tips, tricks and pointers.

I know the program pretty well, I barely know the language though, just the simple stuff, so I may be able to answer questions. For sure, bigbob would be able to answer many questions.

ps-if anyone is at an advanced or intermediate level of action script, you may have a chance to becomming staff if your up for it

Bigbob: Having the users use their login on the board isn't a bad idea
Maybe you can help me design a site in flash which would be based on teh same idea...I'd know how to design the rest of the site myself, just not the login part

Websites made in Flash are much much cooler than ones made in PHP, although PHP allows for more interactions. Learning both would be the best bet, but if you haven't the time, than I guess it's up to you as to what you want in a programming language.

I guess it would make more sense to ask it here, just hopefully one of you will be able to help me out with this....here goes


There's several things I do understand but not 100% sure on, if anyone could explain these with as much detail as possible and give as much of an example as possible, it'd be very appreciated.
I'm also willing to give out 750 - 1000 Viz to whoever can fully help me out with these questions and answer them to the fullest extent.

1) Variables are containers which hold information, right? And information that gets sent to variables are called parameters, right? If not, please explain.

2)What exactly does a trace do? and what is it capable of? I know that it sends out information, but that's about all i know. Please explain this a little.

3)Functions...I know what they are, but I'd like more detail about them, and I would really appreciate a good example of how and when this would be used.

4)Most importantly, what is a listener? Please, explain this as much as possible, and also give a good example of this.


5)I also have a sample peice of code which I was suppose to put into a frame
var myMCL:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var myListener:Object = new Object();

myMCL.addListener(myListener);

myMCL.loadClip("splash.swf",5);

Please explain to me, as best as possible (if possible) as to waht the heck is going on there.

Thanks! Very much appreciated for whoever helps me out with this!!!

1) Yes variables are containers which hold information. I'm pritty sure parameters is the stuff that the variable holds. Did you read about the differnet types of variables?
The main 3 are string, number and boolean. They work like this.
Type------------Can Be-------------Defined By
String----------Anything-----------var a = "str";
Number----------Any real number----var a = 3;
Boolean---------True or false------var a = true; or var a = false;

2) Trace only works in the actual Flash MX program, like when your previewing the clip. Its usually used for when you have variables or other things, and you not sure if there working fully. Try this.

Code:

trace(Math.floor(Math.random()*100));



Math.floor() rounds the number in the bracket to the lowest number. For example

Code:

trace(Math.floor(5.4));
trace(Math.floor(5.9999999));



These both return 5.
Math.random() give a random number, in my case, 1 to 100, but I think it might actually be 0 to 99...

If you went back and wrote
Code:

trace(Math.Floor(Math.Random()*100));


Notice how the 'floor' and 'random' are spelt with capitals. This returns this error.

Error:

**Error** Scene=Scene 1, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 1: There is no method with the name 'Floor'.
trace(Math.Floor(Math.Random()*100));

Total Actionscript Errors: 1 Reported Errors: 1




3) Functions are just .. functions, like groups of code that can be called. I'll use some examples from the previous question.

Code:

function rand(num) {
trace(Math.floor(Math.random()*num));
}



The 'num' up in the brackets is used when i call the variable. So if i write rand(8), it'l put 8 in where ever i wrote 'num'. I hope this is what you ment about functions.


4) Im not 100% sure bout listeners. I found this in the help file.
Code:

var myListener:Object = new Object();
myListener.onKeyDown = function() {
trace("You pressed a key.");
};
myListener.onKeyUp = function() {
trace("You released a key.");
};
Key.addListener(myListener);



From what i can tell listeners.. listen. This example will trace 'You pressed a key' when you press a key, and keep tracing it. And it traces the other thing when you release the key. Thats about all i know about listeners.

5) From what i can tell.. that opens a remote file into flash... Try this bit of code.
Code:

var myMCL:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var myListener:Object = new Object();
myMCL.addListener(myListener);
myMCL.loadClip("http://www.vizzed.com/index.swf",5);



That loads the vizzed intro into flash. What did you actualy want your myMCL thing to do? (Guessen MCL means movie clip loader)
The 5 at the end of the loadClip function is apparently where it loads to... But i've never really used it before.

I hope this works for ya.

Question number 1. Tell me about the free .TK thing. Its a free domain name? And then you get somone to host your file? LIke Bravnet or somthing? A domain name is somthing that you pay for that the systems reroutes into your isp, or the isp of the website you want. But .TK is a free one? I'll prob just google it anyways.

2. Did you download the flash program for free? Illegally? Where can I get it?

3. Is flash different that most programming languages or HTML in that the code is owned by a company? Or is flash universal?
