Denvish would it be an idea to add a "N"(for example) to the start of a new link? it would help frequent visitors. say for example if it only stayed on for the two pages since its first link.

To be honest I think Inglors tutorial isn't very good on OOP, the whole myObj = new Car(); sort of examples that you get everywhere suck too. I might make a new OOP thread, maybe.

class Test {
private var firstname:String;
private var surname:String;
public function setName(myName:String):Void{
var one = myName.indexOf(" ");
firstname = myName.substr(0, one);
surname = myName.substr(one+1, myName.length);
}
public function getName():String {
return "First name = \""+firstname+"\". Surname = \""+surname+"\".";
}
}

mytest = new Test();
mytest.setName("Joe Bloggs");
trace(mytest.getName());


Sup, bitches :)

Yeah inglor explained what OOP was rather then how to do it I think. I should keep writing my beginning threads because they approach the method of teaching how everything works first. One of the first things I planned to cover was OOP

Yeah, sorry, I group similar subjects (eg movement, loops, collisions) together where possible, so if newbs find one of them, they'll (hopefully) look at the others.

If anyone knows, whats the script you would use to make the browser window a certain size after you click a link, is the script applyied on the flash or on the html page? So many questions, answers?

-overview:

How do you make a browser window a certain size? (Pop up window)


Your path is dark.

Response to As: Main 2005-12-02 03:44:23


I think you need JavaScript for that.

Yeah. There are many ways. Put this in your <head> tag..

function PopUp()
{ window.open('URLTOPLACE.HTML',location=0,m
enubar=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=0,status=0
,titlebar=0,toolbar=0,hotkeys=0');
}

Then do..

<1a href="javascript:PopUp;">Click to pop<1/a>

But remove the 1's.

In the javascript code, 0 = false, 1 = true. So if you have resizable=1, you can make that window resizable.

If you want a pop-up to come when you load the page, add this into your <BODY> tag;

onLoad="javascript:PopUp;"

Or change Load to Unload, I think, to make it pop-up when the user exists the page.
