Chapter 15. Scripting Lingo > Using the Message Window

Using the Message Window

Director’s Message window is a way for you to “talk” to Director, using the only language it understands: Lingo. When you type a Lingo command in the Message window, Director executes the command instantly. The Message window is therefore a very useful tool for testing and debugging scripts.

You can also use the Message window to keep an eye on what’s happening behind the scenes while a movie is playing. When you turn on the Message window’s Trace feature, it gives you a continuous, real-time report on the Lingo commands Director is executing. If your scripts aren’t working as expected, this technique can help you uncover the problem.
