In this project the user needs to be able to select "light
text on a dark background" (for certain visual difficulties).
The text is currently dark blue on various pastel boxes, so
the text and boxes need to swap to white and the boxes to black.
This is easy enough in one file, but there are many .swf's in this
project and one click needs to change them all. Using Flash 8.
You could do it easily in design time with a simple JSFL
script to enumerate through all the objects in a file, if is a
textfield and if current colour is one passed then change to new
one. Even have it automatically look through all .fla's in a folder
if need be. Not a huge job, just a bit fidley if you have to learn
If you need to do it at runtime then thats a little more
tricky, and would be best off using a css like style guide which
you either register all the textfields that may need changing,
reset the application and having everything redrawn dynamically
with classes using the new style variables, or enumerate through
all the objects on the stage at runtime, and have all future
instances use the new style variables.
