I'm a vb.net programmer, and I find the graphic capabilites of the language quite poor. I need to give some animation to a couple of basic elements and I'm wondering if Flash + ActionScript is the solution I'm looking for.
I need Flash to read some basic information (size, direction, location) from txt or csv tables in real time (every 5 or 10 secs) and I don't know where to start from.
I'd appreciate some advice.
Thank you very much.
PS. If Flash is not the best or easiest solution, please say so.
Flash can do what you describe you are looking for. You would do better to start with Actionscript 3 (AS3) instead of dipping back to AS1/ AS2, but you can go that route as well.
I`ll start looking for tutorials on Saturday.
