How to create flash movie using SWF Scout SDK and VBScript (Visual Basic script)
This tutorial will show you how to create SWF Flash animation in VBScript (Visual Basic script) using SWF Scout SDK on ASP.NET web-server.
Windows has built-in VBScript support and all .VBS files are recognized as VBScript files and can be executed by system.
1) Install SWF Scout SDK on your computer
2) Run Notepad.
3) To create SWF flash animation movie in VBScript, we have to write a very simple script:
W = 640 ' width H = 480 ' height Set Movie = CreateObject("SWFScout.FlashMovie") Movie.InitLibrary "demo", "demo" Movie.BeginMovie 0, 0, W, H, 1, 12, 6 Movie.SetBackgroundColor 255, 255, 255 ' set background color to white Font = Movie.AddFont("Arial", 18, True, False, False, False, 0) ' add font ' create and place text Text = Movie.AddText("Hello, World!", 0, 0, 0, 255, Font, 0, 100, 250, 160) Movie.PlaceText Text, Movie.CurrentMaxDepth ' place text into current depth Movie.PLACE_FadeOut 0.5 ' fade out text Shape = Movie.AddShape ' add new shape Movie.SHAPE_Rectangle 0, 140, 150, 285 ' draw rectangle Movie.SHAPE_SetSolidColor 50, 255, 50, True, 255 ' set solid fill for shape Movie.PlaceShape Shape, Movie.CurrentMaxDepth ' place shape into current depth Movie.ShowFrame 10 ' show 10 frames Movie.EndMovie ' end movie generation Movie.SaveToFile "shapes.swf" ' save file ' disconnect from library Set Movie = Nothing
Feel free to copy code from this page, paste into the notepad and save as a "HelloWorld.VBS":
