Done for Now!

If you've followed the tutorial so far, you will have a functioning triangle component.

There's obviously a lot more you can do with components than space permits us to describe here, including component inheritance (like the Flash UI Components), skinning, etc. The best place to look for more detail is to examine the source code that comes with the UI Components, which you will conveniently find in the data storage area indicated in Step 8.

The next steps are:

  • Creating a Custom User Interface
  • Creating a Live Preview Movie

Before going on to create a custom User Interface and a Live Preview, we want to present a new Flash MX feature, _targetInstanceName, that allows your components to modify stage elements onto which the component is dropped. We also will talk briefly about component inheritance.
