A (Very) Basic Introduction to Inheritance


So in my last tutorial I went over the basics of object oriented programming (OOP) in ActionScript (AS) 2. In this one we are going to take a look at the idea of inheritance, but before we get to that, a little set up.

For this tutorial I am going assume you all about setting you class paths from my previous tutorial, if not click here. Get your class path set up and come back when you are done.

Back? Ok good.

To get the code examples here to work, you should be using Flash 8 or CS3, or even Flex.

Finally, I had debated whether to go with AS3 or AS2 for this and finally decided it really does not matter that much as the underlying concepts of inheritance are the same. So I will make the assumption that you understand how packages work in the respective versions, class naming conventions, specifics of the syntax of the language verion you are using and where to save your files.
