I am looking at code from a book example. A symbol is called
from the library and used on the stage. The class appears to be
dynamic because a reference to a variable called cardface appears
out of nowhere in the as file (fla is set to STRICT). When
debugging, the variable doesn't exist until the line where it is
used. After this the variable can be seen. I am thinking to myself
that the library right-click option "Component definition" would
allow me to set the variable so that it is available in the Class.
Unfortunately there is no guidance in the help system on this. I am
required to endlessly search to try and get help (not yet found).
Why does Adobe not give us this essential help - i.e. how to use
their dialog boxes? I am such a fan of Flash (AS3) but there are
some part of the system still painfully inadequate.
