Summary

ActionScript is an object oriented scripting language that comes with built-in classes and functions. The language can be used to build interactivity and control to a Flash application. Classes in Flash define the capabilities and general construction of objects built from them. Methods are what objects do, properties are what define the objects, and objects themselves are instances of a class.

Variables store values in Flash and can be local or global. Where a variable is used is referred to as its scope. Functions in Flash are pieces of reusable code that execute repetitive tasks. Like variables, functions can be global. Functions and variables are data typed to say what kind of information they can contain or hold, which is considered a best practice.
