Hi all ,
I went through the different posts and was surprised to see that there is no column Related to Flash Action Scripting , Flash is one of the most Important Software for the Different Web Application ..

I request the Moderators and all to give a link dedicated to Flash Scripting Under the Category of Web Development..

We may anjoy and share all our ideas there..


cheerssss

Hi. Thank you for your suggestion. We actually used to have a Flash and ActionScript forum. However, it wasn't very popular and didn't get much activity. Therefore, it was condensed into our Graphics and Multimedia forum. Once we see a significant number of ActionScript-related questions being asked in this forum (enough to stand on its own), it will be brought back out into its own category.

hi, it is ok..
but now if u see Flash is the most powerfull tool used for web development..


See many pepole here do not know that here we may also find Flash related stuffs ,, And again the fact is that Flash is more than Graphics And Multimedia..
IT has lots of programming and scriping things too..


So I woud request u to Kindly give a seperate Category for flash.. so that it will be easy to Communicate ..

In my opinion, I must disagree. Potential flame war first shot -- proceed with caution! It is extremely useful, true, but it is over-used and IMAO should NEVER be used to create a website, only to enhance one. If I need information from some Flash site, I have to screen capture the window and reedit to use a graphic or run the dang thing thru an OCR translator to utilize the information. Not to mention having to wait while the page itself loads.

Flash should be used to enhance a site. In place of a picture, you put flash animation, interactive data, basically use the power it contains in conjunction with a webpage, not in place of a webpage. End possible flame -- please don't kill me! it is just my opinion

But as Dani already said, few want to communicate at this point. If there is more communicating going on, having a flash forum makes sense. At this point, a forum with 1 poster is a waste. Drum up some more business, get some people in a discussion, and I'm sure with more traffic a dedicated forum will happen.

It would be against copyright laws to use a graphic off of a webpage. For example, I wouldn't want people to steal the graphics I created for DaniWeb and use them in their own publications or documents.

hi,
You are righ from your pont of view,, But i would like you to look at the broader part of it..
If u see then u may realize that the whole videostreaming and video uploading etc is possible just because of Flah only and more over it is not just a web enhancer it is much more that that,,,

So you are saying there would be no video streaming without Flash? Somehow I don't think that's true. I doubt most professional video streaming uses Flash.

Yes I know it's much more than a web enhancer. My point is that IMO it should not be used to create websites. There's a heck of a lot it can do, that doesn't mean it's the best tool for all of it. That's like saying because salt is one of the best flavor enhancers, it's all you should use.

And if you look at most of the important sites that do what you say, I can't think of one that's written in Flash, they're all enhanced by Flash.

Yes using copyrighted material is not a good thing. I'm talking about research, generally. I find some information I need for a report, I find it's best to download it and deal with it offline (reformatting to print and read later, specifically).

Many times with the variety show I produced, I needed a picture and description of a performer for the advertising. Flash sites were useless when I needed promotion material. I have to bother the performer and hope s/he has time to email what I should be able to simply download.

I'm definitely not talking about sniping graphics and data to reuse on another site.

I dunno, WaltP. I'm still in disagreement. Photographs on the web might be copyrighted by that photographer for his portfolio. It may not be right to take those images without asking and use them in your own promotional materials. Don't photographers specifically earn a living by taking pictures of actors and then earning royalty fees when their photos are chosen to be used in various promotional materials?

Yaa i do agree with what Csc gal has written .

Also if u see flash gives a new feel and look to the different sites and at the asme tome prevents Un Authorised user to Take data.

Please understand the scenario I laid out:

Many times with the variety show I produced, I needed a picture and description of a performer for the advertising.

Without advertising, the show is a bust. Entertainers actually have those pictures and bios for advertising purposes. And many that don't have special promo materials (and that's most of them) expect you to download information.

Yes, photographers earn their living by photographing performers. But the pic are the performer's property. If I design a graphic for DaniWeb and I hold the copyright, you would have to get my expressed permission for every use. Can you see a performer asking permission to send out 200 pics to the plays and movies he's applying for, not to mention 10,000 autographed pictures to be sent to fans? No, the photographer generally does not hold copyright on the pictures. They are the subject's property, a service bought and paid for.

The copyright is held by the person/entity who purchased the shoot, I believe. That's why the photographer has the person sign a waiver that the picture may be used for the photographer's portfolio, not the other way around. Non-purchased shots are owned by the photag, and that's where the royalties come in.

Actually, it gets more scrambled than that. The ownership rules are different for a salaried employee than they are for an independent contractor.

But there is also the fair use doctrine. For research purposes, you can copy it for personal (but not professional) use.

You are also permitted to make a copy if you have to convert the format to a form your machine can display.

I predict that, within a few years, copyright will become totally impossible and will be repealed.

Back to the original topic; JavaScript and ActionScript are both ECMAScript with environmental extensions; if you posted a question specifically about ActionScript (not graphics or animation!) into the (new!) JavaScript forum, I imagine people there will be happy to help and discuss... I don't know if that's a bad tactic with regard to organisation though, so don't take my word for it.

Just a suggestion >>
Perhaps Javscript/DHTML/AJAX could be split into ECMAScript (Javascript/Actionscript etc) in programming, and DHTML & AJAX in web development; since DHTML and AJAX require a very specific subset of Javascript, and graphics is indeed, only one aspect of Flash.
