Chapter 6. ActionScript for Effects > Using Tools To Create Code

Using Tools To Create Code

If you're familiar with JavaScript, learning ActionScript might be a minor transition. Both ActionScript and JavaScript are based on the same core specification: ECMA (which stands for European Computer Manufacturers Association).


You have built interactive and animated SWF files in earlier projects. You already know how to make a creative and engaging user experience using Flash, even ones that include a bit of interactivity. However, the kind of interactivity you used didn't involve much complexity because you have used only a limited amount of code. The animation you used so far, such as changing images or moving things around the Stage, didn't involve any ActionScript, either. That begins to change in this chapter, and the good news is that it lets you create more complexity in your files that you cannot achieve without using code.
