Choosing Actions

In Normal mode, the Actions panel provides several ways for you to select action statements to include in an ActionScript: You can choose items from the Add pop-up menu; you can choose items from a scrolling list in the Actions Toolbox; and you can copy and paste items from a separate panel, the Reference panel (you’ll learn more about using it later in this chapter). In both the menu and list form, Flash organizes statements hierarchically in categories and subcategories. In the Actions Toolbox, the categories can be collapsed and expanded just like nested folders.

Tips

  • The Add menu is always available. Use it to create ActionScripts when you’ve configured the Actions panel to hide the Actions Toolbox.

  • With so many categories and subcategories, it can be hard to remember exactly which category holds a particular action. The Index category shows all the actions from the other categories in a single alphabetical list.
