I have designed slideshows and content in Flash Mx that use a
code for preloaders from a book called Flash MX Magic. I am now
using Flash 8, and have copied the code directly into new projects,
and the preloader doesn't work. I'm wondering if there are
differences between the two that would make the original code
make sure all your variables are initialized: flash 6 would
assign allow an undefined variable that's incremented to start at
zero. flash 8 doesn't allow that. incrementing an undefined
variable yields an undefined variable.
also, flash 8 is much less forgiving of typos: myVar is not
the same as myvar.
