First - I am not a Flash or ActionScript programmer. I have
been asked by someone if I could port my ActiveX code (private) to
the Flash client. In researching all of the Flash, Flex and
ActionScript documentation, it appears that almost everything I
need is present... Almost....
A. My program relies on Mouse Coordinates being fed to it in
twips. The only possible references I get to this issue have come
from searching this forum.
- Is it true that the X and Y coordinates are returned to
ActionScript as floating point values that represent fractional
pixel values that I can translate to twips?
B. My program also relies on good timer resolution. The
Windows GetTicks() API is not sufficient, because it is returned
via the Windows message queue and can be off enormously at a
MouseMove event. Therefore, in my ActiveX code, I call the
QueryPerformanceCounter(), which gives me the resolution I need.
- Can anyone tell me what timer API the Flash client engine
is using for the values it returns?
