As a clueless Newbie, who has just managed to install the
flex sdk and get it to work on a sample program, I'd like to know
where should I post my really stupid basic questions? Do you have a
special forum for those?
Like: Is there ever any advantage to using the generated
actionscript instead of the .swf file?
And: What program handles .as files? Do I feed them to the
My browser certainly doesn't know what to do with them, even
Hi there, because you're a newbie you should probably learn
better using the Flex Builder, you can download a trial, use it for
60 days and if you're a student or teacher you can get a license
for free. AS you stated you're very new to Flex so your best help
will be google, most of the times you'll find the answer to what
you need in a somebody's blog or a previous post.
All of your actionscript classes or mxml files are compiled
into a swf in order to be "play" withing flash player if it's meant
to be for the web browser. And most of the times the generated
actionscript is useful when you wanna know the inner workings of
the Flex SDK.
And finally .as files are actionscript files that are based
you can open .as files using Flash CS3 or better, Flex 2 or 3, or
any other actionscript editor that you like.
