[AS3] FlashCaptions v1.0

Get Adobe Flash player

The flash movie above showcases the Caption class I’ve created over the years that adds a floating caption to any DisplayObject of your choosing.

I call it FlashCaptions. It is highly customizeable, and can even be customized using an external xml file. Options include:

  • changing the caption shape
  • providing an image for the caption background
  • providing a stylesheet to style the caption text
  • providing custom MouseEvent handlers to complete actions of your own.
  • apply positioning offsets to change the orientation of the caption
