I am and ActionScript guy but I work primarily in Flash.
I have some Flash MovieClips + custom logic that I would like
to turn into Flex Components. My question is:
I have a Video Scruber that I use over and over in my Flash
projects. I consists entirely of MovieClip instances (there are 8
of them total) and Im not sure how to go about converting them into
Flex acceptable ActionScript.
For example, I have a single MovieClip thats acts as a button
for play/pausing an FLV file. The MovieClip has two states "Play"
and "Pause" and I use gotoAndStop(STATE) to control it. What is the
equivalent to something like this in a Flex component? Can I create
MovieClip instances in Flex? Do I need to turn this simple toggle
button into it's own Flex Component and then add it to the larger
I also have a 2 MovieClips that are used to display download
and playback progress... what type would I make them in order to
maintain that functionality? They use a gradient with a
customizeable background colour.. is there a class in the mx
libraries that will allow me to do this?
I also thought about just pointing my Flex classpath to the
Flash libraries.. is that possible?
Any ideas are appreciated. Im really struggling with this
ActionScript 3 isn't always ActionScript 3 idea.
