Chapter 12. Functions > Mapping to a Function

Mapping to a Function

There are two basic ways of mapping to a function:

  • Using relative or absolute identifiers— In this case, _root refers to the root timeline of the current level the script is run on, and _parent refers to the movie clip or object that contains the movie clip or object with the script. If a script using the _parent object is placed within a movie, the script looks to the movie containing itself. Also, _levelN refers to the nth level in the standalone Flash player or the Flash movie.

  • Using direct movie names— An example is myMovie.myFunction();. Notice that every movie object or movie name used in dot syntax is separated by a period.
