Today I decided to freshen up on the basics of Flash ActionScript. While I do feel like I understand the program more these days (certainly more than I did before I began this Masters program), I have been able to get by without understanding a whole lot about ActionScript 3.0 itself.
I Googled something along those lines and found my way to the Adobe help pages. I am going to make a collection here of a few pages I think will be helpful for me in the future.
I found this list of links to pages that direct users in how to customize components of AS very helpful: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ActionScript/3.0_UsingComponentsAS3/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d118a9c65b32-7ff4.html
This page is one that seems to have all the basics for understanding how audio can be incorporated in a Flash project using AS3: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ActionScript/3.0_ProgrammingAS3/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d118a9b90204-7d27.html
This isn’t only related to AS3, but has some helpful tutorials where you can download files: http://www.developphp.com/view.php?tid=1133&t=Custom_Sliders_For_All_Purpose_Programming_in_Flash_Actionscript_3.0
And here’s a link that could be crucial to my understanding taking a step forward. It’s a description of variables and their uses and scope: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ActionScript/3.0_ProgrammingAS3/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d118a9b90204-7f9d.html
Maybe in my next blog I will have some reflections on getting to know that last site better.
