I have noticed that in AS3, lets say i have a text field which uses a int variable.
var myNumber:int = 10394;
textField.text = String(myNumber);
textField.text = myNumber as String;
I have to say that i use a mixture of these as i find the need for this situation all the time.
In the past i have noticed that as does not work in some rare cases. I tend to think of these as exactly the same thing but clearly there is a difference.
Can anyone share the specifics?
