Tweener , tween and transition class .

15 02 2007

I was surfing google code to see whats new .
Found a new tweening class “caurina.transitions.Tweener”.

Tweener is a static class – that is, a class that allows you to run methods on it, or call its properties, but that never lets you create instances from it. This means that, with Tweener, you never create a new object – you simply tells Tweener to do something for you.

Tweener works on the idea that, instead of setting the value of a given property of a given object directly, as in myMC._x = 10, you can tell that property to create a transition to that value – by doing this transition or tweening, you can control your numeric data in a more fluid way. Doing slides, fades, and all kinds of animation is the result of this kind of manipulation: by making a property or variable go to one value or the other fluidly, not immediately.

Using Flash local shared Object !

19 01 2007

If you have experienced web Development (PHP ASP Etc), then you must know what cookies are !
they are like containers that are used to store users information on their machine while browsing  a particular site , it can contain anything the developer specify (username , encrypted passwords , date , time , etc …) .

Now meet the flash cookies AKA local shared objects , its as well used to save user data .
We had a case scenario discussed back at Designersblock

Brief : Suppose you had a flash banner html embed that has a sound running in the background & it can be turned on/off .
A user turns off the sound , but when he clicks a link to another page on the same site , the banner starts the music again , so how to avoid this ? Ohh ya Local shared  object !! before i start , a good simple tutorial about LSO can be found HERE.
here is how :

 var Mysound:Sound = new Sound();
local_data = SharedObject.getLocal(“user_data”);
this.onEnterFrame = function() {
if( == undefined){ == “on”
delete this.onEnterFrame;

function checkSound() {
if( == “on”){

On_button.onPress = function() {
if( != “on”){ =”on”;
Off_Button.onPress = function() {
if( != “off”){ =”off”;
