Taking the principles and skills taught in ActionScript 3.0 in Flash CS3 Professional Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Todd Perkins demonstrates how to put them to practical use in this course. Todd fully explores ActionScript's most powerful features, including creating advanced navigational interfaces and special effects using XML data and adding accessibility to files via closed captioning. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
In this movie we will take at defining a reusable class path. When I say class path, I am talking about the path to the folder that contains all of your packages. Not the packages that Flash made, your custom packages. If you are following along, I am in Class _Path.fla, in the Class Path folder, in the Chapter 4 folder, in the Exercise Files folder. All we have to do to start with the class path is click the Settings button in the property inspector. By ActionScript version click Settings.
Right above the class path area, click the target icon to browse to a path, and the folder that you want to select, it's in the Chapter 4 folder, then in the Class Path folder and then the Classes folder. Now, if we want to work with any classes inside of that folder and if I put a class file inside of the Todd folder and then inside the Interactive folder, the path to that folder would then be todd.interactive because Flash already knows the Classes folder.
So, Flash is already familiar with this area and you can navigate to anything from inside of the Classes folder. So, let's select the Classes folder and then click Choose and then click OK. Just click OK one more time to get out of the Publish Settings dialog and there you have it. You have setup the class path.
