Maintaining Your Help Files
Creating help to be integrated into Flash MX is a straightforward process and will gain you high marks from developers that use your components. The downside is that it is a very time consuming process to create and maintain the needed XML files by hand.
Keeping the reference help and code hint files up to date can be a daunting task. If you are serious about developing and distributing MX components we recommend that you take a look at FlashDoc. With a few simple comment tags placed in your ActionScript source code, FlashDoc will generate the necessary XML files for you. At the time of this writing, FlashDoc is available as a free web service from www.cybersage.com.
