Hour 2. Using the Script Editing Window > Task: Writing Code in Normal Mode

Task: Writing Code in Normal Mode

To write scripts in Normal mode, you don't have to type much. Instead, you just point the mouse and click a lot. Let's try to create a short script from scratch.

1.
Create a new movie.

2.
Select the default key frame that is in frame 1, layer 1.

3.
Choose Window, Actions to open the Actions panel. Close all the other panels to make it easier to use the Actions panel.

4.
Click the Actions category to expand it.

5.
Click the Movie Control subcategory to expand it.

6.
Double-click the goto command. This places gotoAndPlay(1); in the script area. At the bottom of the screen, you will see Scene, Type, and Frame fields.

7.
Change the 1 in the Frame field to a 5.
