I have a 4-line ActionScript that I'm trying to inject into
.fla / .swf file on compile-time. The script basically reports to
internal .flv file. The AS is this:
When I edit the .fla manually with Flash 8, I can easily
create a layer and put this script on the first frame and then
compile the .swf. However, I want this script-injection process to
happen automatically through a commad-line. So given bunch (say
thousands) of .fla files that don't contain my script, I want to
either inject my script into the .fla files or perhaps just tell
the command-line compiler tool (mxmlc.exe) to merge in my script on
What's the best way to do this? I heard there is a way to
isolate ActionScript programs from the .fla files but it seems this
requires .fla to be first modified so that it includes reference to
external AS file. I'm really trying to do this all without even
needing to open the Flash8 editor.
Any pointers are appriciated. Thanks.
Second side-line question: will getTimer() function return to
me the Flash movie play time or will it return the internal FLV
movie play-time? I really care about the latter. I'm worried that
if there are multiple movies within the .fla or if user say pauses
the movie, I will not be getting the accurate time reading there.
