    Seperate AS file in zip.

    Hey guys, I am wondering why is there a seperate as file in a zip I downloaded?

    There are the files slider.as and slider.fla.

    There is only one frame in the fla file and I was wondering if I can combine the fla and as file to make it work, since I will be combining it with another file.

    This is the Slider.as file:
    package {
    	import flash.display.MovieClip;
    	import flash.events.MouseEvent;
    	public class Slider extends MovieClip {
    		public static var SLIDE_ALIGN_LEFT:int = 1;
    		public static var SLIDE_ALIGN_RIGHT:int = 2;
    		public static var SLIDE_ALIGN_CENTER:int = 3;
    		private var mSlideOffset:Number;
    		private var mSlidebarOffsetLeft:Number;
    		private var mSlidebarOffsetRight:Number;
    		private var mSlidebarEffectiveWidth:Number;
    		private var mSlidebarEffectiveX:Number;
    		public function Slider():void {
    			slide.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);
    			addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, mouseUpHandler);
    			addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, mouseUpHandler);
    			slidebar.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mouseMoveHandler);
    			// Assume alignment of left.
    			mSlideOffset = 0;
    			// Initialize the slidebar assuming no offsets.
    			mSlidebarOffsetLeft = 0;
    			mSlidebarOffsetRight = 0;
    		public function get value():Number { 
    			return (slide.x-mSlidebarEffectiveX+mSlideOffset)/mSlidebarEffectiveWidth;
    		public function set value(n:Number):void { 
    			slide.x = mSlidebarEffectiveWidth * n - mSlideOffset + mSlidebarEffectiveX;
    		public function set slideAlign(alignment:int):void { 
    			if(alignment == SLIDE_ALIGN_RIGHT)
    				mSlideOffset = slide.width;
    			else if(alignment == SLIDE_ALIGN_CENTER)
    				mSlideOffset = slide.width/2;
    				mSlideOffset = 0;
    		public function set slidebarOffset(offset:Number):void { 
    			mSlidebarOffsetLeft = offset; 
    			mSlidebarOffsetRight = offset;
    		public function set slidebarOffsetLeft(offset:Number):void { 
    			mSlidebarOffsetLeft = offset; 
    		public function set slidebarOffsetRight(offset:Number):void { 
    			mSlidebarOffsetRight = offset; 
    		private function updateSlidebarEffectiveValues():void {
    			mSlidebarEffectiveWidth = slidebar.width-mSlidebarOffsetRight-mSlidebarOffsetLeft;
    			mSlidebarEffectiveX = slidebar.x+mSlidebarOffsetLeft;
    		private function mouseDownHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
    			addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, mouseMoveHandler);
    		private function mouseUpHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
    			if(event.relatedObject != this && event.relatedObject != slide && event.relatedObject != slidebar)
    				removeEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE, mouseMoveHandler);
    		private function mouseMoveHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
    			if(slidebar.mouseX < mSlidebarOffsetLeft)
    				slide.x = slidebar.x+mSlidebarOffsetLeft-mSlideOffset;
    			else if(slidebar.mouseX > slidebar.width-mSlidebarOffsetRight)
    				slide.x = slidebar.x+slidebar.width-mSlidebarOffsetRight-mSlideOffset;
    				slide.x = this.mouseX - mSlideOffset;
    When I try to copy that code, and paste it into the first frame of the Slider.fla to the action script its giving me an error that it cant be nested.

    This is the fla file: http://uppit.com/v/AMTTEXHM

    If someone can combine it to make it work off of one file named slider.fla would be great.

    Basically the seperate .as file is a class associated with the slider object in the library. To fix this simply put the .as in the same folder and test the movie. If you're worried about the stuff that apears on the bottom then don't. It means everything is working well(there are "trace" thingys in the class).
