While plainly documented by Adobe in the Flash 10 AS3 Docs, it seems as though few programmers know about the with statement. I don’t use them much personally, but when a coworker came across one in my code recently and was puzzled, I figured I would write a quick article to cover their usage.
Being allowed to declare and define member variables all at once introduces a question: in which order does the class boot up? Further, if the class has parent classes, how does this change things? Read on for the simple results.
AS3 makes some strange things possible. Even stranger, it seems to do this without any warning by its compiler: MXMLC. It seems as though one of these strange things is the ability to override the variables of your parent classes.
Today I bring to you… another silly compiler quirk! Read on for the silliness.
We’ve all seen it, perhaps even in our own code. It’s something I think we do because we’re not really sure what would happen if we didn’t do it. Here are some little tidbits of pointless code I’ve been seeing recently:
