Time to Revisit Flash

Wrote this little flash thing to get back into the program.

Wrote this little thing to get my Flash chops up.

So I had to teach a class today on Flash. No biggie, right? Wrong.

A lot has changed since the 90s. ActionScript 3.0 won’t let you put scripts on buttons anymore. Which makes a lot of sense, because I was always loosing where I put my scripts (part of the reason I abandoned Flash so long ago). So it’s a little cleaner, but now everything has to be a function. Meh.

Here’s a little project I did to learn/remember how to make buttons do their thing. You click on one thing, it goes to another frame and stops. Click another thing and there’s a little animation with sound. And click one other thing and it links to a web page.
