AsSetPropFlags Explained

You might stop reading here, everything you need to know is in the provided example:AssetpropsflagsExample (450).

So you have decided to read on. Yes, it’s 2007 & I’m still doing AS2. I know, it’s sad, and I’m never gonna get my band started (weird purple tentacle sucking noises). But believe or not, I still love it :).
One of the things on my todo list was understanding the AsSetPropsFlags demon. As with all things, once you do understand them, you can’t understand why it took you so long.

AsSetPropFlags is simple. Really. Assuming you know your binary numbers, and I assume you do. But if you don’t check the example below and the utility classes provided.

So now I’m going to try and explain it to you :). Note that I only have used it in Flash 7 and above, so don’t ask me about all the flash 5 and flash 6 weirdness involved.

Image flipping

A post on the flashcoderlist (http://www.mail-archive.com/flashcoders@chattyfig.figleaf.com/msg34296.html) asking about an image turn around effect got me coding for 2 hours in a row until I finished it and realized my effect was not quite similar to what was required (http://www.ja-ik-doe-mee.be/).

Anyway I liked it nonetheless so posting it anyway.

You can download this example here (Flash IDE & FlashDevelop / MTASC compatible):ImageTurnEffect (900).
