JavaScript Flash Ð scripting your tools of the trade

If you’ve ever had to do a tedious task inside the Flash IDE, chances are that you could have automated it using JavaScript Flash Ð the extensibility layer for Flash.

Using some basic JavaScript syntax, you can access a wide range of functions within the Flash interface and create your own commands, behaviors, panels and even tools.

This session will look at the basics of JSFL, how to create your own scripts and automate various common tasks, how to make use of the FileSystem API for accessing data on your hard drive and how to start building your own tools for use inside the Flash IDE.
