flash documentation gripe

in the flash 8 docs, we have this in example code:

this.createTextField(“myTxt”, 20, 0, 0, 100, 20);

now, i don’t know if flash allows parameter names, but this example is so unhelpful for newbies (like, the people reading docs) for so many reason.

what do all those numbers mean?

why aren’t they named like this?

name.“myTxt”, _depth.20, _x.0, _y0, _width.100, _height.20);

…or something?

how annoying.
