Chapter 6. STEP 6: ActionScript with Net... > The ActionScript Editor—a Primer

The ActionScript Editor—a Primer

The ActionScript Editor in Flash MX has come a long way since it was first introduced. Access it by pressing F9 or selecting Window, Actions. There are two modes to the editor: Normal mode and Expert mode. Normal mode uses a wizard-type approach for writing ActionScript and does not allow you to directly edit the ActionScript by hand, whereas Expert mode does. Coding will be the focus in these chapters, so you should be in Expert mode to follow along (see Figure 6.1).

Figure 6.1. The properties of the ActionScript panel can be accessed by clicking the icon in the upper-right corner of the panel, just below the Close button. Placing the ActionScript Editor in Expert mode allows you to edit ActionScript.
