Chapter 15. Testing > Testing Within the Flash Authoring Environment

Testing Within the Flash Authoring Environment

Although it shouldn't be your first choice for heavy-duty project testing, the Flash authoring environment does accommodate some minor testing. Within the authoring environment you can test the following:

  • Button states. You can test the way buttons look in their up, down, over, and hit states.

  • Sounds on the main timeline. You can listen to sounds placed along the main timeline (including those that are synchronized with on-stage animations) when the timeline is played.

  • Frame actions along the main timeline. You can test any Go To, Play, and Stop actions attached to frames or buttons on the main timeline when that timeline is played (see below for actions that won't work within the authoring environment).

  • Animation along the main timeline. Although you can test animation along the main timeline (including shape and motion tweens), this does not include animation within movie clips or buttons (see below for more information).
