Choosing a Scripting Mode

Flash offers two modes for scripting in the Actions panel: Normal and Expert. Normal mode offers you the highest level of assistance with the complex task of scripting. The following exercises teach you how to switch modes. But after completing this practice session, unless you are directed otherwise, keep the Actions panel set to Normal mode for the exercises in this book.

Only Experts Make Mistakes

Because Normal mode is for les experienced scripters, it does everything it can to ensure that the scripts you create are entered correctly and ready to run.

Therefore, in Normal mode, any scripts that you import from an external source (such as a text editor) must be in perfect shape. If the script contains any errors of syntax, a dialog box appears, warning you that you must import the script in Expert mode. In Expert mode, you are free to make as many mistakes as you like; Flash highlights the errors in red for you to fix.
