Perhaps a plugin later to help even more to enter commands and parameters.

Would you help with this last point, Hans?
Your help would be very appreciated.


Yes,count me in.
(It will be interesting to check out if it is possible to make a design-time only plugin. Only a NBP but no NBR. The NBP should not be packed. Dave?)

By the way, i'm thinking about porting it to ActionScript3 using the free Adobe Flex SDK or a 30 day trial copy of Adobe Flash CS3.


Sounds good, give it a try.

Thanks Hans!

I have uploaded the demo again with a help file.
I hope it to be enough understandable.

Gaev, i've used this help maker software:

It's free.

Hi luishp,

Bravo!!

I admire your work since your first contributions. This last one is outstanding!!

It opens a wide new world, not only to NeoBook!!! Thanks a LOT!!

I want this to be available for free in a NeoBook friendly way using functions as Gaev suggested.
Perhaps a plugin later to help even more to enter commands and parameters.


I´m respectfull about your attitude in how you manage your products. Mmmh I think that making some money using your inteligence, time and creativity is a good idea too.

I would be the first one to buy your products. I´m sure that this could make you work in a more comfortable manner. We all have families and lots of things to do.

Thanks again for your hard work.

Saludos,

Benito

May I also say that I've been watching your progress closely and am amazed at what you've been able to achieve. Well done, luishp and Gaev! HPW has also brought up some great points in this discussion.

Please know luishp that I've been testing your work and it is impressive. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and skill.

Glen

p.s. I would also love to see Dave incorporate some additional Flash capabilities into NeoBook itself. Count my vote!

Thank you all for your nice comments.

And Benito, you are right, i need to earn money as much as anyone but i also love to share what i see is somehow beautifull. I think is almost an artistic feeling.

If this project has some success, time will come to do some profits from it, in the form of extended libraries, ready to use objects or custom programming.

I have a lot of ideas for NeoBook and the WEB.

luishp:

:idea: If you have a PayPal account, perhaps you can setup a link on your website ... so beneficiaries of your work can express their appreciation with a donation ... $10 here, $20 there ... will go a long way towards that NeoBookDBPro plugin :wink: you have on your wishlist ... perhaps NeoBook developers can play Santa's elves in deliverying on this wish.

I have nothing to lose Gaev.
I'm currently redesigning my website but a simple button is easy to add.

By the way, i'm finally learning ActionScript 3, and i'm sure it will bring more power to powerflash, although i will need some time to get into it.

Thanks Hans for pushing me.

I know i'm too repetitive but i would like Dave to read this:

http://www.kxcad.net/image_Adobe_Flash_Programming_ActionScript/00000343.html

I think that as soon as a function is shared from ActionScript it is directly callable as a method in the ActiveX Flash container.
I think it's that easy.

Thanks to you!.

I'm still learning ActionScript 3 and now fscommand() does not exist anymore.

It has been replaced with ExternalInterface

I am reviving an old thread (wow 4 years go fast!).

I am looking at tools to create Flash that will have AS3 scripting. AS3 uses strongly typed variables so you have to declare the variable and its type in the script. KoolMoves gives an indication that assigning dynamic values to variables via fscommand does not exist.

Variable name used in Flash 6/7/8 for an assignment statement like txt1var = "hello"; (with backward compatibility turned off). Not used in Flash 9.


Flash will use either the ActionScript virtual machine v1 OR v2 (AS3). You can't use both in one flash. My environment requires AS3.

Is anyone using NB to push/pull variables to AS3 based flash projects?

Is the current NB functionality working for variable assignment? If a variable is not strongly typed in NB, what is the default? String/text? (even if it is a string of numbers)

David P.

btw the tools mentioned in this old post are still there and apparently much improved:

http://koolmoves.com - $49 (supports AS3)
http://www.sothink.com/product/swfquicker/ $97 w/shipping (supports AS3 - broader functionality)
http://swishzone.com - $69 mini $149 max (wide userbase, broad functionality - does NOT support AS3)
