Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

I’m thoroughly excited about seeing this in the docs. I’m converting the Limelight Media Player (built in AS2) to Flex 3 and my main connection class manages pausing, stopping, playing, etc. So, in AS2 you have NetStream.pause(value:Boolean). Passing false resumes and true pauses.

I noticed Flex Builder wouldn’t give me any code hints after typing “pause(” but would close the function for me. Hrmm…that’s odd. So, I let it go last week (had other things to focus on) and picked it up today only to find out there are 2 new methods introduced: resume() and togglePause(). SWEET! I had to build my own togglePause() function in my connection class which wasn’t hard but still…native is much greater.

The functions are self-explanatory but if you would like to read more you can see the full doc on LiveDocs.


Maybe you don’t share my excitement but that is fine. 🙂 I’m happy to see progress in the API.
