[ Article ] Migrate ActionScript 1.0 to ActionScript 2.0 , Part 1: The BasicsBy sgrosvenor
Another day, another article; this time I’m concentrating on shifting simple functions from an AS1.0 based environment to an AS2.0 environment. The concepts are easy enough to pick up so that anyone with a moderate smattering of knowledge of AS1.0 (i.e. the ability to create and call functions and relevant syntax) should be able to take the plunge into AS2.0 development.
The article sets the groundwork for a more in depth look at AS2.0 in a later article, its benefits, pitfalls and common techniques that should have you developing in the new environment in no time at all.
I was also curious over the past few days in the Flash Blog to see how many people have migrated to the new environment, what hurdles there have been, and the flavor of designer / developer that embraces AS 2.0 rather than those that prefer to stay with AS1.0
