Default Extending Macromedia Flas MX 2004

Well, after many postponements, this book finally came out and I just picked it up. Seems like some really interesting stuff. I've only got through the first couple pages so far but my understnding of things is already a little better. Keep in mind this is the point of view of someone that knows relatively little about this stuff. But I thought I would let people know its out and If anyone cares (or even if they don't ) I'll probably post a little review when I've read the rest of it. Hopefully with some extensions as well

Yeah thats 27Bobs (Todd Yard) and Bit-101's (Keith Peters) book. Definitely one that was highly anticipated with the release of FMX04.

Be great to hear a review of it when you're done

oh, and for those who dont already know about it:

Yeah, I guess I should have mentioned that stuff

Anyways, judge for yourself: I think the chapters on tools is one of the best and most important. And bit-101 posted a link to the whole chapter!!! Since he just posted it on their forums I don't see why there would be anything wrong with me posting it here.

yeah, i realized what a moron i was right after i hit the post button *It's been one of those weeks for me *

Anyways, I had just left it up because I thought maybe another person or two would go check it out, if they realized that the link was to a full section of the book.

So this is a stupid question: can one extend Flash MX in this way? I suspect not, but perhaps there's a similar or different way to do it?
