FLINT particle system

Moristar asked how to use an external libray from within a c# flash project. The short answer is yes you can, but you’d have to define stubs.

The long anwser…

In .net when you are talking to COM an interop assembly is used. The interop assembly defines types which represent the actual types to be used. That assembly is generated automatically at the time you reference the COM assembly.

It would be nice to be able to simply add a reference to a SWC file and use the features it defines, but currently it is not supported. A tool could be created which would read the SWC file and create the stub library. Currently this needs to be done manually.

Previous example

A year ago I did exactly this to get to use Google Maps with jsc. Today I updated its source to the latest Google Maps API version.


In this post I am going to do this to demonstrate the same techniques for Flint and also comment on what I am doing.
