Part II: Digging Deeper > The Anatomy of Lingo

Chapter 8. The Anatomy of Lingo

Looking at Lingo

Understanding Lingo logic

Messaging and hierarchy

The Message window

Points to remember

We had a quick look at lingo while we were exploring behaviors and the Library Palette. But now it's time to get into the technical details. This is the chapter in which we'll start to study the conceptual underpinnings of Director: the logic by which it functions and the methods by which it goes about executing its tasks. That may sound intimidating, but it's really just a peek under the hood of your software.

A true understanding of these elements is crucial to anyone who really wants to put Lingo (and by extension, Director) through its paces, because these are the rules by which it plays. You can get a lot of multimedia work done with what you've learned thus far, but with Lingo the full potential of the software begins to come into focus.
