HaXe Port of CASA Lib

Written by Aaron Clinger on April 6th, 2010

Andy Li found CASA Lib so helpful when writing ActionScript that he took on the task of porting it to HaXe. HaXe is a single programming language that compiles to multiple platforms such as ActionScript, JavaScript, PHP and C++. Great work Andy; we’re honored.

You can follow, fork and contribute to this CASA HaXe port on GitHup: http://github.com/andyli/casahx

1047 Compiler Error with AS3 1.3.0

Written by Aaron Clinger on April 1st, 2010

It was brought to our attention that StageEventProxy class in the AS3 1.3.0 release is throwing a 1047 Compiler error when compiled with MXMLC. The error reads “Parameter initializer unknown or is not a compile-time constant.” This is due to a bug (Ticket ASC-2231) in the MXMLC compiler. Hopefully this will be fixed in the future. The class compiles correctly with the Flex SDK and in the Flash IDE. If you are running into this compiler bug please download the updated class here: StageEventProxy.as.

We will remove cross-class constants as parameter initializers in future versions of CASA Lib until Adobe fixes this problem.
