Chapter 14. What's New in Flash MX 2004? > More and Better Components

More and Better Components

Components are self-contained, portable building blocks for applications. Components make it easy for programmers to deliver internally complex functionality in an easy-to-use modular form. They implement functions that you use over and over again in many applications. Rather than build the functionality from scratch each time, you can just drag and drop a component onto the Stage, perhaps customize the component's appearance, and set a few parameters. Using components also helps you maintain consistency within an application.

Flash MX shipped with 7 components. Flash MX 2004 ships with 13. Flash MX 2004 Professional comes with 30 components!
