    as2 to as3 Migration help...easy question!

    Hey guys, first of I would like to apologize if this question has been already answered

    I need help translating this follow AS2 code:
    PHP Code:
    speed 5;
    jump 10;
    gravity 10;

    Basically what I'm trying to ask is if there is an addeventlistener or something that would load all of your variables just like how as2 did

    hmm any replies would be greatly appreciated

    What does that do in as2? I would expect it to declare a few variables in a scope which immediately exits, and has no greater effect. If those variables go into the larger scope of the movie, then to approximate that in AS3, you need to declare the variables outside and initialize them inside the event handler. Or you can rely on dynamic property declarations, but I don't recommend that.

    var speed:Number;
    var jump:Number;
    var gravity:Number;
    loaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onLoad){
      speed = 5;
      jump = 10;
      gravity = 10;
    I have no idea why you'd want to delay setting hardcoded values like that.
