Using Conditional Actions

Conditional actions allow you to ask certain questions (or test whether a condition has been met) and make Flash carry out another action if the answer is true (or the condition has been met). You could ask Flash to determine, for example, whether the number that is currently in the variable Age is greater than 59. If it is, you could instruct Flash to jump to a scene that describes discounts for senior citizens.

In Flash 5, the set of Basic Actions contains one conditional action: If Frame Is Loaded. This action comes with a built-in condition to test, which makes it a good action with which to start learning about conditional actions. The If Frame Is Loaded action is often used to create a teaser animation that tells your viewers there will be a wait to download information.
