Click-and-Drag Actions

We've mentioned that there are a lot of methods and properties in the ElectroServerAS object, and many of them are going to be really useful for your game development. But don't think you have to remember the syntax for even the ones you use all the time. You can install these actions directly into the Actions toolbox in the Actions panel in Flash (that's a lot of Action!), and drag and drop them into the script pane whenever you want to use them. This installation will also enable color-coding for all ElectroServerAS actions.

1.
Open Flash.

2.
Locate the install.swf file in the AppendixC directory, and open it inside the Flash environment (as a SWF—don't import it!).

3.
Click the Install ElectroServerAS Object Actions button.

The actions are now installed. Close the SWF and look in the Actions panel. You'll see that the ElectroServerAS object is now an option in the Actions panel. Currently there is no documentation (reference help) installed with these actions; this appendix will serve as the documentation. However, by the time this book is published, there will probably be an updated installer for these actions (see www.electrotank.com/ElectroServer) that should contain the reference help.

4.
For the color-coded version, close Flash and then reopen it.
