Creating user interface (UI) elements becomes easier with the integration of Flash ActionScript 3.0 and object-oriented programming. In Flash CS4 Professional: Building UI Elements, Todd Perkins demonstrates how these two programming tools work together to build common UI widgets, such as scrollbars, preloaders, sliders, and checkboxes. To streamline the workflow, Todd shows how to reuse custom codes across applications with object-oriented programming (OOP). Step by step, he builds one widget per chapter, covering the skills it takes to develop a fully functioning application. Exercise files accompany the course.
