The creation of a box is very simple: just declare it in the .box instruction, and pass the parameters.
.box nameofbox width=100 height=100 color=black
Parameters width and height are optional. This box has black borders but transparent interior. Optional parameters are:
- fill - fills the box with border color, or with another color
- line - gives a different thickness to the border
It's also possible to fill the box, not with a color, but with an image - just pass it as fill nameofimage.
The example, below, creates four boxes. They are placed side by side, in a 2x2 array. The boxes appear in sequence, taking 2 seconds between them. The image is stolen from Wikipedia, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Amy_lee_in_rock_and_rio_2011.jpg
.flash bbox=600x600 name="box_example.swf" fps=50 background=white .jpeg amylee amy_lee_in_rock_and_rio_2011.jpg .box bluebox 200 200 color=black .box redbox 200 200 color=red fill .box greenbox 200 200 color=green fill=yellow line=10 .box amybox 200 200 color=pink fill=amylee .frame 1 .put bluebox .frame 201 .put redbox x=400 y=0 .frame 401 .put greenbox x=0 y=400 .frame 601 .put amybox x=400 y=400 .stop .end
Notice that this flash has a few minor bugs. For example, the yellow box with green borders was cropped - the line width makes it a larger box than the space allowed to it. Also, Amy Lee's image was distorted to fit inside the box.
