Chapter 12. Other Lingo Flavors > Points to remember

Points to remember

I hope this chapter has whetted your appetite for exapnding your Lingo vocabulary. What are its key takeaways?

  • Many features that can be set in Properties dialog boxes can also be set in scripts. Check out A Lingo Lexicon (Appendix C) for Lingo equivalents.

  • Turning off the property the visible of sprite represents a total disabling of the channel. Think of this property as "the playable of channel" and make sure to turn it back on when you're through.

  • When it comes to keeping track of comparison operators (the ones using < and >), remember: The bigger one gets to ride in the rocket.

  • Text strings are any grouping of text characters. Chunks are specific units within those strings. Delimiters are the characters that help Director identify chunks: spaces define words, commas define items, and Return key presses define lines.

  • Hyperlinks are text chunks that can be clicked by the user to perform some action, such as branching to another Web page.
