Good ActionScript Practices

To communicate your site message effectively and dynamically, ActionScript is used to control and talk to Stage objects so that you can create the interesting and engaging effects, animation, and functionality the site needs. Up to this point in the book, you have created quite a bit of ActionScript for The Honeycomb movie functionality. The remainder of the book focuses on other ActionScript actions and functionality for finalizing the site. So, knowing more about ActionScript and how to troubleshoot your script becomes a must. If the script doesn’t function, the message will not be as effective and sometimes will be completely missed or ignored by the visitor.

Flash MX has added several features to check your ActionScript for errors in both the Flash Authoring Mode and Flash Player Testing Mode. You now have new features in the Actions panel, as well as in the Output dialog box and the Debugger panel.
