purpose is the programmatic control of Flash modules. I highly
recommend the O'Reilly series of books (ActionScript for Flash MX,
ActionScript Cookbook, etc.) for learning this language. Mr. Moock
is my hero!
Now, Breeze Presenter is really just a utility which converts
PowerPoint slides into Flash modules, which are then shown by the
proprietary Flash module "viewer.swf". Because any Flash module can
access any other Flash module in a stack (and thus make use of its
properties and methods) it is possible for you to embed a Flash
module in a PowerPoint slide which will "talk to" the viewer.swf
when you view your Breeze presentation. There are several examples
of this on the forum.
The trick is learning the properties and method names for the
viewer.swf file, so that you can then address them. Macromedia
isn't very forthcoming, so its a matter of trial and error.
Interestingly, the main object in the viewer.swf is named
"Poolpah2" - if you get a moment, look up what a "poolpah" is (hint
- its from a Kurt Vonnegut book).
