Threads in ActionScript

Jul 5, 2006

Yesterday I made this thread implementation in ActionScript 2. Needed it for a multiple file upload app.</p>

Example 1

var t:Thread = new Thread(); t.run = function(arg) { trace("Wehoo! I'm from the thread"); } t.start();

Example 2

for(var i:Number = 0; i<5; i++) { var delay:Number = Math.round(Math.random()*1000); var t:Thread = new Thread(); t.run = function(name) { trace("Wehoo! I'm from " + name); } t.start("Thread " + i, delay); }

Example 3

class MyStuff implements Runnable { public function run(a):Void { // do stuff... } } ... var myStuff:MyStuff = new MyStuff(); var t:Thread = new Thread(myStuff); t.start();
