AS3 Why Your Bitmap Doesn’t Care About Your Input!
Over the past couple of years of doing AS3 coding, it has frustrated me to no end as to why I couldn’t create a new Bitmap object and add Mouse Event Listeners to it. As I first got into optimizing AS3 display code, trying to shy away from MovieClips everywhere, I started using Sprites more. As I started learning about the efficiency and pixel-level control of the Bitmap/BitmapData class, I started using those classes more and more. And every once in a while, I would want to add Mouse Event Listeners to a Bitmap. Every time during those every once in a while times… it never worked.
