    Replicating timeline with code

      Hi guys and girls,

      Just wondering if someone can enlighten me on how you go about replicating the timeline of a movieclip as a class file?

      I am what I guess would be called an intermediate actionscript programmer, i am not slouch, but I am also no actionscript guru.

      Anyway, I have been playing more with classes lately and AS3 addChild to add a child to my MovieClips, just wondering how I would create a MovieClip with frames inside of my code, then how do i play the frames etc?

      Is it best to mix developing in flash with both code and designing movieclips in flash? Just from what I have been reading there seems to be alot of people leaning towards the development of code only swf's. Just wondering if someone can give me some tips.

          if you use attachMovie() you can have a timeline available.
          You can't create frames with AS code.

          If you use code, timeline or a combination depends on what type of project you have, and your backround.
          There is no right or wrong.
          When I'm creating flash ads, I work fastest when i combine timeline and code.
          When Im creating more serious applications I don't use the timeline, just code.
