Hi I used to do quite a bit of as3 word but not for quite some time (guess why???). I am now having a play with flash pro6 and the toolkit for create js. I have to say I worked through the platypus example and it kinda left out all the things I wanted to know like the real easy stuff! So for example I want to add a mc to the stage with js --- how? The as bit works ... but I tried various combinations ofstop(); var fredd = new fred(); stage.addChild(fredd); fredd.x=100; fredd.y=100; /* js this.stop(); var fredd = new fred(); this.stage.addChild(fredd); */
but I just kept getting an comment about empty symbols and a helpful reminder about the timeline starting at 1. I feel sure this is very easy, but I can't figure it out! Perhaps there is a real beginners resource somewhere that I am missing? Thanks
Thank for taking the time to post.I posted on that forum yesterday - they have a helpful "Its adobe's problem" kind of attitude. The thing is I am sure I can't be the only who is floundering, probably because of some really simple "Set up" stuff that I don't know. HELP!
Here is a simple example of a fla that adds an mc to the stage with CreateJs:
And here is a complex CreateJs example:
In both examples the swf and the html generated with 'Toolkit for CreateJs' do the same.
In both examples the swf is faster.
