In this course, author Todd Perkins demonstrates key changes in the CS5.5 release of Adobe's interactive design and animation software. This course covers workflow improvements, enhanced ActionScript features (including new code snippets for AIR and several mobile frameworks), file optimization techniques, and extended support for Android and iOS app development in AIR.
Code Snippets now come with a Heads-Up Display or HUD that gives you information about snippets when you add them to your code. If you open the Code Snippets panel and take a look at any code snippet, whenever you single-click on a code snippet, you'll see that the HUD icons pop up. When you roll over to the right, you'll see the i icon that says Show description, so you click on that and you see a description for the code snippet. For example, the Swipe to Go to Next/Previous Frame explains how the action works.
If you want to see the code for that action, then click on the brackets to show the code. So here I can see a comment that has a description of the code, and then I could see the sample code here. Now this works for any code snippet. Just click on it; you can see the description in human readable words; you can click the Info icon to get information about it. It just makes working with code snippets easier than ever before. So now you can use the Code Snippets HUD to use prewritten blocks of code more quickly than ever.
