Creating Shared Libraries

Flash provides two ways to share library assets. In author-time sharing, Flash authors can grab symbols (or other assets) from centralized source files and use those symbols in the movies they are creating. In run-time sharing, symbols (and other assets) used in one or more movies reside in a central location, from which the Flash Player downloads the symbols for playback.

For the following exercises, create two movies. Name them for their functions—for example, ItemsToShare.fla and UsingSharedItems.fla. In the file ItemsToShare, create one symbol named Square and another named Rectangle, and place an instance of each symbol on the Stage. In the file UsingSharedItems, create one symbol named Circle and another named Oval, and place an instance of each symbol on the Stage. Save both files in the same folder; call it SharingTest.
