Chapter 15. Using Basic ActionScripts > Understanding Data Types

Understanding Data Types

When you use ActionScripts, you have the ability to work with data. Data can be information entered in by a visitor in an input data field, or it can be computer information such as, the current position of the mouse, or the date and time. When you work with data, you have 4 possible data types:

  • String. Allows for the entering of text values.

  • Number. Allows for the entering in of numeric values.

  • Boolean. A Boolean state has two values; typically true or false.

  • Object. Serves as a storage device for any data type, including other objects.
