The links here are for browsers that have the Flash 7 plug-in, or later (FireFox/Netscape/Opera/any Mac browser) or activeX control (IE/Win) already installed and working properly. For ease of editing and to keep files as simple and small as possible, none of these samples includes browser- or plug-in/activex-control detection — so if you don’t have it, you’ll get a big fat nothing.
As time allows, I will be converting and adding MX 2004/7-specific versions of other example files from the other version sections, which, for the most part, were items created, on the fly, while visiting various newsgroups and message forums, in an attempt to answer user questions by demonstration.
Most of the samples include links to download the source FLA files in Zipped (PKZip) format. Some of them, however, contain fonts that may not be on the receiving system, in which case, they may look significantly different.
You are welcome to download the sample files to dissect them and learn from them, but please be sensible and ethical and DON’T post them on YOUR website as your own work.
These samples are provided as is. They contain precious little text, as yet, explaining anything about what’s going on (though I am trying, more and more, to include verbose comments on nearly every line of code), but I figure since the FLA is available, you’ll probably be able to figure it out. I make no warranty as to the serviceability of these files for any particular purpose, and will not be responsible for any damages resulting from showing these to your friends. They will not make your car run faster, or get you the guy/gal of your dreams, and you’ll still have to brush your teeth, and don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been.
Here is a link to the most current list of web sites devoted to Macromedia Flash and Flash developers, which you may find useful in your pursuit of Flash Perfection (you are in pursuit of perfection, aren’t you?).
