Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating other applications using the MVC pattern, part of Flash CS4 Professional: Object-Oriented Programming .
Now that you have used object- oriented programming and the Model View…Controller design pattern to build a complex application, you may be…wondering how you can use the same knowledge to build a totally unrelated…application. Now I don't by any means want you to think that you are…limited to building slideshows, when you are using the Model View Controller…design pattern. You can use this design pattern for many different situations.…For example, we are going to look at our slideshow here and I'll tell you how…you can apply the same concepts to build, say, an MP3 player or another…different type of application.…
Let's start with the model. When you are working with the model in our…slideshow class, it's powered by XML data. When you are working with the model…in an MP3 player application, you may be using XML data as well that has…information about various MP3 files. Where they are located, title, description…information, the length of the song, etcetera.…So you can use the model class and then extend it and add specific properties…
