Here are examples of the material we will develop in this workshop. All of these examples are fully implemented & documented for Flash CS3 & ActionScript 3.0. Click on any screen shot to open the sample in a new window so you can see how it works. Note that the examples on the first row are templates are based on custom ActionScript 3.0 visual and parsing classes that you will learn about during the workshop.
