Sample text

To limit access to a variable, we use access-control modifiers. Access-control modifiers for instance variables An instance variable’s access-control modifier controls that variable’s accessibility in a program. The access-control modifiers available for instance variable definitions are public, internal, protected, and private. The public and internal modifiers have the same effect with instance variables that they have with classes: an instance variable declared public can be accessed both inside and outside of the package in which it is defined; an instance variable declared internal can be accessed inside the package in which it is defined only.

The following generalized code shows the approach: new ClassName For example, to make an object from our VirtualPet class, we use the following code: new VirtualPet Multiple independent objects can be made from the same class. For example, the following code creates two VirtualPet objects: new VirtualPet new VirtualPet Literal Syntax We’ve just learned that the generalized syntax for creating a new object is: new ClassName That syntax applies to both built-in and custom classes. For example, the following code creates a new instance of the built-in Date class, which represents a particular point in time: new Date However, for some native classes, ActionScript also offers an alternative, more convenient means of creating instances, known as literal syntax.

Variables come in four varieties: local variables, instance variables, dynamic instance variables, and static variables. We’ll study the first two varieties now, and the remaining two varieties later in this book. Local Variables Local variables are used to track information temporarily within the physical confines of a constructor method, an instance method, a static method, or a function. We haven’t studied instance methods, static methods, or functions yet so for now we’ll focus on local variables in constructor methods.
