Introduction

ActionScript Behaviors are Flash's way of simplifying some of the more common ways you control a Flash movie. Think of ActionScripting as the language you use to communicate with Flash. For example, if you were in Paris, and you needed directions to the Eiffel Tower, knowing the French language would be the best way to find your final destination. Knowing how to ActionScript gives you the ability to navigate through Flash and create a movie that reacts to the visitor through interactive buttons and screens. ActionScripting literally brings life to a Flash movie. ActionScript Behaviors are pre-written sections of ActionScript that help you perform some of the more commonly used Actions in Flash, such as: opening a Web Page, or playing and stopping a movie clip. Flash has Behaviors that help you control the Web, movie clips, video, and audio files. In addition, Flash's extensible application architecture, allows for the creation of even more Behaviors, so occasionally point your browser to the Macromedia Exchange at: www.macromedia.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm, and see what's new from the creators of Flash.
