Getting into Action

Here we will take a quick look at Actionscript as a beginner. First question is, what is "actionscript" ?

The simple answer is, this is a scripting language. Flash uses it to add interactivity in side a flash movie (swf).

The very next thing will come to our mind is where can I put or write these scripts? Flash's user interface comprises of different pannels. So action scripting is written in "Actions pannel".But we can not just open our "Actions pannel" and write our whatever actions(or scripts).There is a rule to it, which says what actioins can go in where.We will talk about that later.For the timebeing, lets say we want to write some actions.We can do this and place our actions at 3 different places in our flash environment; namely

1 . Key frame

2. Button instances*

3.MovieClip instances*

* When we put a button/Movieclip symbol from library to Stage, it becomes an instance of the button/MovieClip on Libray, instance means duplicate.

After placing a Movieclip instance in stage, if we select it and open properties pannel, then we can see a textinput field where we can name the particular instance in stage.This name is very important because through actionscript whatever we have to write, we have to refer to this name not the name of the movieclip symbol in Library.

Ok,coming back to Actions,we can select a keyframe in main timeline and open our actions pannel and write the script. We can also select a movieclip instance then open the actions pannel and write scripts.Or we can select a button instance, open the actions pannel and write actions.

PHP 6 ?!!

Yeah, a brand new incarnation of PHP. Can you belive this, how fast PHP is growing ? With the release of PHP 5, we feel the power. Now its more power with standardisation. I found this post to be a good introduction to PHP6. I am very much excited about the capabilities its bringing in.

Where there is a will there is a way

Some People say that "I just do not get time to do this."Some say "I have better work to do, do not have time.".But after all its your health and health is wealth. So work, but please take care of yourself.Unless there is nothing you will get. Infact its good to be busy but its always bad to be busy for nothing. If it takes 2 more days to make yourself feel better, then take 2 days leave and take rest.But when you go back to work start the work and never feel tired.But being to work 2 days before and falling ill again after 4 days is a bad thing. I will say its better to judge yourself.Because noone else can say anything about your personal being.So be true to yourself. I drive myself by the proverb "Where there is a will, there is way". So if you want to achieve something, you will get a path.But the "will" has to be there.Nothing is impossible.
