My request for freelancing help does not deal with large project. I am trying to learn AS3 I develop my
files but not knowing AS3 all that well I need someone to code (fix my files) in a way that little by
little I learn something that will help me in the future.
Having lost $100 I am nervous about submitting my requirements. You appear to have replied honestly so I am will to try again. Below you will find the requirements submitted to [CENSORED]. If you know someone trustworthy who doesn’t mind doing small project in AS3 please advise. My needs will be ongoing. Has I learn something new and want to make my files more appealing more and more request will come.
I did a little research on OOP , Design patterns(mvc, singleton, factory). The mvc and singleton seam too advance for me. Factory looked fairly easy to build web site (most things are simple until you start). OOP does have interest for me if I understood right. When I code in VBA , I create reusable Public and Private Function. I see this quite useful in the future.
What I understand in Flash are things like:
For , while, if..else..else if, switch…case, the syntax is slightly different but I use this in VBA .
I have a good understanding of variables and arrays. I can manage substring. I have a good understanding of eventListener as they relate to mouse event. I finally understood the advantage of using movieClip as button but that is about it.
I use loaders, containers, URLrequest but don’t completely understand. In other words I copied code and sometimes it works. I don’t have a clue how to communicate with a loaded swf. How to create playbar, volume control and drag actions. I am also bad at eventListerner (other than buttons).
I am 61 years old so I don’t learn all that fast. I usually have a better chance of learning when it is not theoretical but project oriented. Here is what I propose:
Place the code that unloads a swf to play the next one based on the button click into the file I sent you. Put sufficient comments for me to follow the logic. This will make my fla useable. I will then create a new fla and try to code it properly. Once I have completed this then… I would like to learn how to communicate with the loaded swf. For example, trace(totalFrames), trace(currentFrame), stop and start the loaded swf, turn volume on and off. And again with lots of comments on how that works. I would like to learn how to build a playbar from scratch. I am not quite sure how we do this but maybe you write the detail steps and create a simple fla that will have to code according to your description. If I can manage this then I would code it into my fla. Learn how to do a volume control in the same way as the playbar.
This is not cool looking Flash but it is something I need and it will motivate me to work harder. Once I have completed this, I would like you to suggest how to create class (public functions that simplifies the code in the action panel).
If you are willing to help me, please come up with a fee and will see were this goes.
The person identified as [CENSORED], did one project for me for $120.00. Encourage by the results I proposed a second project. The estimated cost was $200.00. After paying $100 advance she is not doing the work and she has not replied to any of my emails for the last 5 weeks.
I am not blaming Activeden (Envato); however if Activeden has a way to warm the community please do before she takes advantage of others.
