How to create a better ActionScript Object
Some of you may know that I write a regular ActionScript programming column for Flash&Flex Developer’s Magazine.
The latest issue (January, 2011) has just been published and my article this month explains an approach to subclassing the ActionScript Object class in order to create more feature-rich objects. The ActionScript Object class may contain quite a complex data structure (a hash or ‘associative array’) but it does not provide methods for manipulating that data – my subclassed ObjectPlus class does.
Flash&Flex Magazine is available as a PDF download and it’s free. In addition to my column, this month’s issue also explores the streaming capabilities of HTML 5, animation effects in Flash games and numerous other features. Go and download a copy from: http://ffdmag.com.
