    Migrating a Flash CS4 project to FlashBuilder

    mythicwave Level 1

      I'm migrating a Flash CS4 project  to Flash Builder.  My CS4 project has a lot of assets that are assigned  classes in the Flash library.  For example, a graphic in the library has  a class name of MyBitmap, and a base class of  flash.display.BitmapData.  I've built my CS4 project as a SWC file and  included it as a library in my Flash Builder project.  The project  builds fine, but when it runs, it says MyBitmap is not defined.  Is  there a way to resolve this?

       

      Thanks,

          That's odd that it would fail at runtime. Can you make sure the SWC contains what you expect? In Flash Builder, in Package Explorer, look for your SWC under "Referenced Libraries". Perhaps the class wasn't actually compiled into the SWC.

            The class was in the SWC, but I looks like the problem occured because I didn't declare any variables referring to the SWC assets (didn't need to do this in CS4).  Once I declared a variables, I was able to use the SWC classes.  I'll probably move most of these directly to the Flash Builder project using the [EMBED ...] tag anyway.
