Chapter 2. Writing and Editing ActionScr... > Using the Actions panel and Script w...

Using the Actions panel and Script window

To create scripts within a FLA file, you enter ActionScript directly into the Actions panel. To create external scripts that you include or import into your application, you can use the Script window (File > New and then select ActionScript File) or your preferred text editor.

When you use the Actions panel or Script window, you are using features of the ActionScript editor to write, format, and edit your code. Both the Actions panel and Script window have the Script pane (which is where you type your code) and the Actions toolbox. The Actions panel offers a few more code-assistance features than the Script window. Flash offers these features in the Actions panel because they are especially useful in the context of editing ActionScript within a FLA file.
