Elearning using Flex

I am glad to announce the first Step for basic requirements of E-Learning using Flex has been achieved.
Basic Requirements met:

  • All Flash player versions starting from Flash Player version 6 to 10, should be loaded. (For support of old elearning courses).
  • Without any memory leak due to loading multiple swf files.
  • Ability to navigate to any particular lesson (SWF).
  • XML Support for loading swf files into a lesson.
  • PreLoader for showing the loading status of individual SWF files
  • Ability to detect events of SWF files (eg: totalframes, swf playing etc.,) 

See the demo of loading a number of animations. The source files include and XML


AVM1Movie Controller in Flex

Overcome restrictions on an AVM1 SWF file loaded by an AVM2 SWF file:

While trying to control AVM1Movie (Flash Player 8, 9, 10 or older) from flex, we will get the below error message: “Property stop not found on flash.display.AVM1Movie and there is no default value. ”

To overcome this problem, ForcibleLoader class converts them into latest player versions on runtime. The below is an working example for how to control AVM1Movie from Flex.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx=”; layout=”absolute” initialize=”init()”>
private var swfURL:String = “AVM1Movie.swf”;
private var libMC:MovieClip = new MovieClip();
private function init():void{
var loader:Loader = new Loader();
loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, swfComplete);
var fLoader:ForcibleLoader = new ForcibleLoader(loader);
fLoader.load(new URLRequest(swfURL));
private function swfComplete(event:Event):void{
libMC = event.currentTarget.content as MovieClip;
<mx:UIComponent id=”swfContainer”/>
<mx:NumericStepper id=”slide” change=”{libMC.gotoAndStop(slide.value)}”/>
