Overview

If you're serious about Flash design, and if you want to push your ideas to the very limits of possibility in Flash MX, then this book and CD are your indispensable companions.

This package combines two vital elements: the most comprehensive and in-depth reference resource for Flash MX ActionScript Rich, and practical tutorials on using ActionScript effectively in your Flash movie design. We've packed in 20 chapters of tutorials, hundreds of detailed reference entries, and hundreds of example FLAs and SWFs. The CD reproduces and expands the complete ActionScript dictionary, providing you with a comprehensive and portable reference tool. To gain an idea of the CD's content, view our online demonstration. You can view all the dictionary's entries, but only the first 30 or so are functional.

Our aim has been to make this book the best Flash MX ActionScript resource, bar noneā€”the book that you'll keep on your desk and never exhaust.

Glen Rhodes started his mind going early in life, when he was about 4 years old. At that age, Glen began playing the piano, which was sitting unused in his family's house. He's been playing ever since. Later, in 1997, Glen co-wrote a full-length musical called Chrystanthia. Somewhere along the way, he picked up game programming as a hobby, and eventually ended up making games professionally for home console systems. Then, in 1998, Glen discovered how he could take all my experiences and combine them, when he discovered Flash. The rest is history. Glen shares his ideas on his website, GlenRhodes.com.
