object, introduced in Flash MX, finally provides an elegant way to create global varialbes and functions visible on all timelines. As mentioned earlier,
is an object and adding properties to the
object means that we are adding global variables visible on all timelines. Here's a sample declaration: = "yo";

Now the variable is available to all timelines. If we want to retrieve the value of the variable, we need to write only


The same means for global functions:

_global.sayMyName = function () {



Now you can use

like other global functions

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
