Does any have some useful Action Scripts to share?Action Scripts look very much like Javascripts to me.Anyone know how Action Scripts was developed?

I thought AS was only for flash programmers, but i could be wrong. I'm not sure, but i dont think they will have any use if you are not a flash programmer, anyways, check out http://www.flashkit.com/ for AS and Flash tutorials. Action Script is the coding language for flash

I had been to flashkit.com to search clues but still no clue how it was created and what was it based on.Flash is getting more and more versatile, it can work with PHP, PERL, ASP, CFM, JSP, JS and Databases as well.

I don't have any knowledge as far as the history of the development of Actionscript but from my general experience I would say it's pretty much a combination of C++ (also making it like java) and visual basic. Obviously object oriented but as someone said, I'm not sure if you there is much use for it outside of flash and it also seems that most of the functions are flash specific function calls utilizing a prewritten library of functions. I would be interested to learn more about the development. I think actionscript may carry over somewhat into Fireworks and the macromedia suite but I'm not sure if it's even identical within their own suite.None-the-less it's pretty simple to use and understand as long as you have some basic object oriented experience and a bit of C helps as well.

Well, i guess you are right.

Nobody seems to know where and how actionscript came about.

Mystery!

using actionscript is like using command prompt in windows. it mean that action script can do much more than those "click and drop" stuff can do.

 

actionscript can be used also at swishmax. what is swishmax?

-a flash creator program which is much further simpler than macromedia flash. very useful and easy to understand.

Thanks wanhafizi!

 

I use swishmax too but what i need is more than just animation.

I need application functions.

What are you trying to do Avalon?? I might be able to help with something - I know some action script and use it regularly for work. I greatly appreciate your help in the past. If you are looking for something other than background on actionscript I might be of at least some help.


whafizi

for swishmax users, you can go to the swishmax website which contains tons of example files. using that, you might get the idea what swishmax can do and where is the limit of it's abality.

happy SWISHing!

Have anyone ever try to work swish with php and mysql before?

FYI - I recently was reading a graphic design book covering multiple graphic design programs, and I found a short few pages on flash and actionscript. The book states that actionscript was developed from javascript. Why they didn't just incorporate java I don't know but that is what the book said. How reliable is this info? Who knows - I didn't check the bibliography or anything so the credibility is questionable but it seems similar enough to javascript to validate the claim.

i'm also looking for AS tutorials but some of them are very confusing
