Using ActionScript

Scripting is nothing more than writing instructions. Each instruction tells Flash to do something very specific. For example, “play,” “stop,” or “set that movie clip's alpha to 50%.” By keeping each piece of ActionScript very specific, you can easily piece together more advanced instructions. But at the core, each “sentence” (or line of code) is a single instruction.

All your ActionScript is typed into the Actions panel. Open the Actions panel and follow along as we explore. Select Window, Development Panels, Actions (or press F9). Take a quick look at Figure 15.1, and then we'll cover a few more details before you do a few exercises.
