Chapter 8. Welcome to ActionScript 2.0 > Behaviors and the Behaviors Panel

Behaviors and the Behaviors Panel

Those who have worked in previous versions of Flash will notice something missing from the Actions panel—normal mode. Normal mode was a GUI interface for putting ActionScript in the Actions panel. It has since been replaced somewhat by the Behaviors panel.

Behaviors are small pieces of code that can be placed in frames or within objects themselves. When a behavior is selected, an interface will pop up for certain parameters of the behavior to be chosen or filled in. When placing actions within objects, behaviors have events associated with them that can be adjusted directly from the Behaviors panel. Flash comes with a certain number of built-in behaviors, and you can download more from select vendors or from Macromedia. You can also create your own behaviors, which is covered in Chapter 26, “Extending the Flash Authoring Environment.”
