Chapter 20. ActionScript: Write Scripts

Chapter 20. ActionScript: Write Scripts

The ActionScript language that is part of Macromedia Flash Basic 8 and Macromedia Flash Professional 8 offers designers and developers a variety of benefits. With ActionScript you can control document playback in response to events such as elapsed time and loading data; add interactivity to a document in response to user actions, such as a button click; use built-in objects, such as a button object, with built-in associated methods, properties, and events; create custom classes and objects; and create more compact and efficient applications than you could create using user interface tools, all with code that you can reuse.

ActionScript is an object-oriented scripting language that offers control over how your Flash content plays. In subsequent lessons, you’ll see how ActionScript has evolved into ActionScript 2.0 to comprise a core set of language elements that make it easier to develop object-oriented programs.
