Workshop

The quiz questions are designed to test your knowledge of the material covered in this hour. The answers to the questions follow.

Quiz

1:If you have a movie clip at level 1, what is the difference between using _root and _parent in scripts inside this movie clip?
A1: Basically, none. Both refer to the main timeline at level 0. However, if you move this clip around and place it inside another movie clip so that it is at level 2, _root will refer to level 0 and _parent will refer to level 1. So you will want to be careful which one you use anyway.
2:How many names does a movie clip have?
A2: Two. It has a name in the Library. It also has a name for the specific instance of the movie clip. There is only one Library name for the clip, but you will need as many instance names as there are instances.
3:What is the advantage of using brackets rather than dot syntax in referring to a movie clip?
A3: Brackets allow you to use the contents of a variable as the name of a movie clip. With dot syntax, the name is hard-coded as part of the script.
4:If scripts in the main timeline are at level 0, and frame scripts inside a movie clip are at level 1, at what level is the script attached to the movie clip?
A4: Level 1. Movie clip scripts are at the same level as the frame scripts inside the movie clip.
