Dry Run – Amazon Kindle Jumbo Tron for ASTD

Posted in Flash at 12:35 am by Curtis J. Morley


Today we tested the wall. At first in this short :55 second time lapse video you will see that the wall looks kind of like Plinko on "The Price is Right" The assembly took nearly seven hours and my camera battery died before we finished so the end is cut off. You can see the finished project below. This was great fun to put up and the team was great to work so hard. Thanks everyone.

Flash CS5.5 Error ArgumentError: Error #2012: DisplayObject$ class cannot be instantiated.

Posted in Flash at 3:36 am by Curtis J. Morley

ActionScript Error 2012 Description:

AS3 Error 2012 is a great Flash error. It is descriptive and tells you exactly what it means. Argument Error 2012 means that when instantiating a DisplayObject you do not create a new DisplayObject since there is only one DisplayObject Class an it is already instantiated with every swf you create.

Flex / Flash Error #2012 Fix:
Remove "new DisplayObject();" from your ActionScript.

Bad Code:

var newClip:DisplayObject = new DisplayObject();

Good Code 1:

var newClip:DisplayObject;

This should help you resolve Flex / Flash Error #2012

Thanks and as always Happy Flashing
