Chapter 7. Using Components > What Components Are

What Components Are

Components are movie clips. They're generally pretty complex movie clips, with several smaller movie clips inside them, as well as a ton of ActionScript. Once you look closely at components, you'll see they're just like the movie clips you've already made, but much more complex.

Components also have a set of defined parameters to which you have access. Components are clearly defined packages: As the ActionScript programmer, you have access to some of these parameters, and that's it. Whoever created the component decided, “I'll let Flash users change these parameters about my component, but that's it!”
