OOP: Object Oriented Programming

Object Oriented Programming is a concept rather than a technique or method of coding.  However, within the concept of OOP, there are certain techniques and methods.  Object Oriented Programming (OOP) is an object-based style of programming that uses objects to store and work with data. Templates known as classes are used to define the properties and methods that make up objects in code.  So the point of it is to easily re-use robust code, making developing applications much easier, stronger, and allows more possibilities.

In this tutorial, I will take you through a very basic and easy, but very powerful method and aspect of OOP in Flash.  We will create a loading circle that spins around by attaching external code to the movie clip.  This will hopefully demonstrate to you the power of OOP.
