Don't _root me so much. I can beat you with this or call my _parents.

Portability! Scope your variables using relative addressing! Don't use _root! :sighs: ... On January 24, 2002, at 08:24:44, Williams, Michael wrote:

Hey FlashCoders, The team is working on a comprehensive list of "Best Practices" when developing applications and user interfaces using the Flash Player and we would like to get your comments on this document. We feel that the community has a lot of say in what defines a well written Flash application, and we value your input greatly. What follows is a first draft of this document which will eventually be published as part of a developer centric area of that we are working very hard on right now. Please send any comments to this list, as I am anxious to get any input and additions to this list. I look forward to the discussion. [/quote]

+ Read the 'living document that is driven by community input' : ActionScript Coding Standards by Michael Williams. March 2002. PDF - HTML (google) - Flashcoders Wiki Best Practices

+ Read the entire thread on Best Practices RFC at Flashcoders to really understand the meaning of this Best Practices (many flashcoders worked in this thinking on you, to help you!)

+ Read Best Practices Guidelines at What is Flash.

+ Read Best Practices for using Macromedia Flash MX to build Rich Internet Applications by Jason Hatcher from Macromedia.

+ And finally, read Application Developer's ActionScript Workshop by Colin Moock (source files for examples here).

And please, don't _root anymore.
