Adding Glow to a Shape in AS3

Adding a glow to a programatically drawn shape is very easy in actionscript. We just need to create the GlowFilter object and apply it to the filters property. A quick example is follows

var whiteGlow:GlowFilter = new GlowFilter(0xFFFFFF, 0.8, 30, 30, 1, 1, false, false);

var sp:Sprite = new Sprite();
sp.filters = [whiteGlow];

That’s it. Similary you can add other filters such as GradientFilter, BlurFilter, etc. For a detail list of the available display filters refer the livedocs : Available Display Filters.

Happy Coding guys. 🙂
