I'm not sure if you can export of GUI from Adobe Flash... however it probably is not a bad tool for prototyping a GUI.

You might want to try asking this in a Flash forum, or maybe a DirectX forum or a Visual C++ forum. Most of the people here will probably not be able to help you very much with DirectX and VC++.

Well, some of us could, but nah... 'cuz then we'd have to do twenty lashes in repentance. *Macintosh* rjoshicool, Macintosh... Macs don't do DX or VC++.

They do Flash and 3D games though, and the question is a semi-interesting one in that light. Can it be done? Does WebKit have support for it out of the box?

I have tried having a flash interface before, not for a game, just as a test. I could not actually get transparent backgrounds to work. Flash does not seem to have the ability to have a transparent background without real time clipping (although this was maybe six months ago, so maybe they have added that option). It does seem like an interesting test to do though.

There is a third-party Flash library, crossplatform and all, that should be possible to integrate into your application. Can't find it now, but I know it's on SourceForge.
