Flash Tools for Developers: Parametric Curves on the Plane - Getting the Files

Author(s): 
Doug Ensley and Barbara Kaskosz

Download the 20-page param_guide.pdf (a 1.0 MB file) for detailed instructions for customizing the Parametric Curves applet.

Download param_graph.zip file (a 1.0 MB file) and unzip it in a folder on your computer. You will see a param_graph folder which contains all the files related to this article. You will be particularly interested in the following:

  • The folder edu contains all the necessary ActionScript classes in a nested sequence of folders. Note that for Flash to be able to find the classes, the folder edu must reside in the same folder as the template you are working on.
  • The three source files for the templates that will be discussed are param_basic.fla and param_advanced.fla.

Working right from the folder param_graph, you can open one of the three template .fla files in Flash MX 2004 Professional or Flash 8 Professional and begin customizing the template to your liking. Alternatively, if you prefer a clean working environment, you can copy the edu folder and the templates into a new folder.
