Creating Simple ActionScript 2.0 Classes
The aim of this tutorial is to get you familiar with the basics of creating your own ActionScript 2.0 classes. The examples used in this tutorial as purposefully very simple. Hopefully once you understand the basics of creating and implementing class files, you can take it from there.
I am assuming you are working with the following set up.
- Windows XP
- Flash 8 Professional
Class files are external (not in the timeline of a movie) ActionScript files and end in the extension .as. Flash looks class files in a specific locations called class paths. By default, Flash will look in the same folder as the fla for class file and in a specific folder where flash stores its own class files. However, if you plan on creating and using your own classes across multiple projects (which is part of the power of classes in the first place), then the first thing you should do is set up your own folder to store your class files and add it as a class path. We will go through this process in the first section of the tutorial.
