It can be hard to find decent information on JSFL, so I figured I’d start doing some blog posts about it to help others.
This one is pretty simple, but I do plan on doing several more on this topic in the near future; so stay tuned!

The command we’ll be adding is a simple “Close Others” that will have Flash automatically close all the open.

Well, it’s pretty simple; we set up a loop and look through all of the open documents. Each document is checked to make sure it isn’t the one we’re working in, and then it is closed.

There is one more step to making this command accessible from within the Flash IDE; we need to drop it in the right location so Flash can find it!

Go ahead and click it and Flash should close all the open. You have now built your own custom Flash command! As stated earlier, I’ll be doing several more posts about JSFL in the near future, so feel free to come back and check them out.
