Chapter 19. Introduction to ActionScript > Hint, Hint: Flash Helps You Code

Hint, Hint: Flash Helps You Code

Code hints act as a friendly expert watching over your shoulder as you create ActionScript, and giving you hints as you go along. Code hints come in two forms: tooltips and menu-driven code completion.

Tooltips show you formats after you have typed a portion of the action, or inserted an action via another means. For instance, in Figure 19.3, a gotoAndPlay() action has just been dragged from the Actions toolbox into the Script pane, and a tooltips hint has automatically appeared showing that this action requires a frame parameter indicating which frame to go to.
