Alter the properties of the SWF

Did you know that we can alter the properties of the output SWF of Flex.
The can be done like this:
In a Flex project the application class:

[SWF(width=”500″, height=”500″, frameRate=”30″, backgroundColor=”#FFFFFF”)]

and in an actionscript project , the code should be like this:
   [SWF(width=”500″, height=”500″, frameRate=”30″, backgroundColor=”#FFFFFF”)]
   public class MyClass


I found it handy inorder to fix a problem I encountered in one of our projects. This might not be used quite often, but it is worth knowing…. 🙂
