Setting Up Your Class Path:

  1. On your local hard drive (typically drive C:) create a folder named asclasses (can be any name, but follow general folder naming conventions, e.g., all lowercase no spaces). For example C:\asclasses. You do not have to put it on the root of the C: drive, you just have to remember where you put it.
  2. In Flash go to Edit>>Preferences.
  3. In the Preferences Dialog Box select ActionScript
  4. Click on the ActionScript 2.0 Settings Button.
  5. In the ActionScript 2.0 Settings Dialog click the + button (Make sure to click the + button, otherwise you will overwrite your default class path)
  6. Click on the icon that looks like a cross hair and browse to the folder you created in step 1. If you used the example folder name and location that I used the dialog box should look like:
  7. Click OK in ActionScript 2.0 Settings dialog.
  8. Click OK in Preferences Dialog Box.

You should now be back at the Flash main interface. Now that you have your class path set up, Flash will look in this location for class files that you reference in your ActionScript. In the next section we will do a brief test to see that the class path is working.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
