newbie to OO and Flash here, so hope not a stupid question!
1. Have created a class that extends MovieClip. The class
includes some code for the OnRelease event handler.
2. Create and display new instance - OnRelease event in class
3. Add to the created instance a new OnRelease handler - it
works but the OnRelease code in the class is no longer called
Is there a way to get both the have the OnRelease code within
the instance and within the class execute?
My workaround at the moment is to have an event defined in
the class called "onWhatever", which i then call from the OnRelease
when i instatiate the movieclip. This seems a inefficient to me and
i would have thought a better way would exist?
I think if you assign an onRelease event to the instance, it
overwrites the event defined in the class. Your workaround isn't
bad, in fact it is more logical than assigning an onRelease event
to the instance but having the class event execute too. I would use
You could try to call super.onRelease in the event assigned
to the instance, but I guess this calls MovieClip.onRelease, which
isn't defined. You could extend your class again and call
super.onRelease from this new class, then it should call the event
declared in the first extended class. But again, calling the
onWhatever seems more practical to me.
