Well that was a brief and basic look at how you can create your own class files and some of the basics of how they work. Now that you have the basics, you can play around with them and see what uses you can come up with for them. As this was a basic introduction, the following is a list of OOP/ActionScript principles that you may want to get more familiar with to get the most out of creating your own classes.

Further Learning:

  • Inheritance - reusing existing classes in new ones.
  • Encapsulation - keeping things hidden, but usable.
  • Data Typing - who can be what.
  • Class vs. Instance Methods
  • Public, Private, Protected access modifiers.

» 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.
