Chapter 25. Debugging > Tracking Variables with Dynamic Text

Tracking Variables with Dynamic Text

When your best efforts to prevent errors don't work, it's time to track down where things are going wrong. If you suspect that the fault lies in the value of a variable, one of the easiest ways to see what's happening with it is to make it visible.

Dynamic text fields are directly linked to variables, and by positioning a text field temporarily on the stage or outside the movie's boundaries, you easily can keep track of a changing value.
