Eval mathematical Expression using AS3

The below code is example for how to use MathParser.as used for evaluating maths expressions using flex. Inspired from flashmaths

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx=”http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml” backgroundColor=”#333333″ creationComplete=”calculate()”>
private var evalStr:String;
private var mpExp:MathParser = new MathParser([ ]);
private function calculate ():void {
var compobjVal:Object = mpExp.doCompile(mathStr.text);
evalStr = String(mpExp.doEval(compobjVal.PolishArray, []));
<mx:TextInput id=”mathStr” text=”((7*(1-8))*9)-6+7″ change=”calculate()” />
<mx:Text id=”resVal” color=”White” text=”{evalStr}” />
