The Quick: Items in your library such as movie clips and sounds set to be exported for ActionScript (exported in first frame) are loaded before your preloader is loaded even if your preloader is placed on the first frame of your movie. The Details: When a Flash movie loads into the Flash player, it loads in a progressive manner that loads all content at the beginning of the movie before any content later on in the movie.
Doing this allows for movie playback to begin prior to the entire movie having been fully downloaded. Flash knows how to do this because everything on the timeline is static and doesn't change.

By Jesse Marangoni aka TheCanadian | 2 February 2007 This tutorial will teach you how to tile the background in Flash 8.
In previous versions of Flash, you had to duplicate a movie clip a number of times so that it covered the entire stage. This method is outlined in Kirupa’s tutorial: While this works great, Flash 8 provides a more efficient means of creating a tiled background through the BitmapData class. This class allows you to create a tiled background using the drawing API methods. Changer la couleur d'un texte dynamique - Flash/ActionScript - Programmation. Quick Modal Window ActionScript.org Forums. Launching a Centered Pop-Up Window. A common feature that you can see on many Flash sites is the pop-up window.
While this site features several tutorials on creating variations of the pop-up window, this one is a little bit different; it is centered. You click a button and the new window opens in the center of your screen regardless of your resolution. Click on the GO button for an example of a pop-up window that is centered on screen: Customizing the Window Unless you want your pop-up window to display updates from the kirupa.com site, you probably want to modify the window size, content it loads, and the window's attributes such as toolbars, etc. The following information should help you to customize the window.

Samples Flash | Flex | Ajax | SEO | More » StateManager. Due to the success (and quality) of Asual's SWFAddress, I've decided to stop work on this project.
SWFAddress is now capable of all the things that StateManager is, so it doesn't seem very beneficial to the open source community to continue development on StateManager. The source code and examples will remain available but no longer be updated, but keep checking xa for other open source code! Within days after posting the above message, Rostislav Hristov (the creator of SWFAddress) sent me a very flattering email asking me to join the SWFAddress team. 1 Introduction 2 Examples 2.1 Basic examples, single file2.2 Basic examples, multiple files2.3 Displaying the loading progress2.4 Using targetspecific listeners2.5 Errorhandling2.6 Queuemanagement2.7 Miscellanous3 API3.1 Constructor 3.2 Static constants 3.3 Loading and observing targets3.4 Managing the queue3.5 Managing listeners 3.6 Events3.7 Configuration3.8 Getters, getting information about the loading process4 FAQ5 Donations6 Bugs7 Support8 History9 Status and copyright10 License For Use As Colin Moock, the author of Actionscript - The Definitive Guide stated lately: Preloading still is a major problem for a lot of flashers.

Description MovieClip.scale9Grid You can use 9-slice scaling to specify component-style scaling for movie clips. 9-slice scaling lets you create movie clip symbols that scale appropriately for use as user interface components, as opposed to the type of scaling typically applied to graphics and design elements.
With the previous flash versions you had an unwanted behavior when you scaled a symbol with rounded corners: With the new Flash 8 you can define a scale9Grid in order to mantain the aspect of the corners and scale only the center part of the symbol. David Stiller’s blog » Blog Archive » Loading and Tracking Multiple Files at the Same Time (Part 1) Not long ago, a blog guest entered into conversation with me about loading and tracking multiple files at the same time (see Event Handlers versus Event Listeners comments, starting with the eighth comment). Tiemen was hoping for a way to use the MovieClipLoader class inside a custom ActionScript 2.0 class, not only to load external files — which isn’t especially difficult — but also to track each file individually; that is, to be able to pass individual functions into the custom class, and have that class manage the tedium of assigning the passed-in functions to the MovieClipLoader events of each file. This particular requirement was the tricky part.
If the custom class merely had to manage event handlers for a single MovieClipLoader instance, that would be easy. TweeningParameters - tweener - Google Code. Dewplayer reloaded - dew's blog.

By Colin Moock 05/29/2001 In Flash, a preloader is a code module that pauses a movie until some required body of data has finished downloading, guaranteeing the proper playback of the movie. For example, a preloader can ensure that animation or sound has sufficiently buffered before playing, or that a series of variables has loaded before being manipulated and displayed.
