I'm currently having trouble writing Flash classes and eliminating the use of _root and _global. Does anyone have a good suggestion for source code of a flash application with good use of custom classes.

Thanks.

Static methods and properties are really useful for the kind of things you might leave on the root or in the global scope. For example if you had a variable called "foo" and you need other classes to be able to access it you could put in a class like so...

class ExampleClass
{
     private static var $foo;
     
     public static function get foo ()
     {
           return $foo;
     }
     public static function set foo ( value )
     {
           $foo = value;
     }
}

then when you need to access it import the class...

   import ExampleClass;

then you can read the variable like this...

   var i = ExampleClass.foo;

and set it like this...

   ExampleClass.foo = "baa"

You can also have static methods too...

class ExampleClass2
{
     public static function myMethod ( )
     {
           // do stuff
     }
}

which you can call like this...

    import ExampleClass2;
    ExampleClass2.myMethod();
