So today I decided to learn about the DataProvider as I need to use it with a TileList in my current project. The Adobe documentation was lacking (no big surprise there) so I turned to my handy Essential ActionScript 3.0. I found nothing. WTF Colin Moock? His previous AS books totally helped me learn AS 2.0. The only thing this book has been good for is the XML section.
I'll bet you though that this post was going to contain something useful about the DataProvider class didn't you? Well it's not. The whole point of this post is to say don't buy the Colin Moock Essential AS 3.0 book.
(I'll try to post more on the DataProvider later.)
