SWF meta tag

I’m always searching for it so here is a useful blogpost.

As the latest FDT version ( Beta 4 ) does not set compiler arguments concerning SWF-size, framerate etc. by default I started using SWF-Metatags to specify these settings.

I’m talking of these things:

[SWF(width="910", height="610", backgroundColor="#FFFFFF", frameRate="40")]

Just set this tag above your class opening in the one you’re going to compile. Here is a complete list of (useful) arguments you can pass in:

width
widthPercent
height
heightPercent
scriptTimeLimit
frameRate
backgroundColor

So basically this is the fastest way to set up common compile-arguments to your project. By the way there is no Flex-Framework required – these tags also work in pure AS3 projects.
