Course programme

Adobe ActionScript is the programming language of the Adobe Flash Platform. Originally developed as a way for developers to program interactivity, ActionScript enables efficient programming of Adobe Flash Platform applications for everything from simple animations to complex, data-rich, interactive application interfaces.
This manual provides a foundation for developing applications in Adobe ActionScript 3.0. It discusses core ActionScript 3.0 concepts, including language syntax, statements and operators, and object-oriented ActionScript programming


~ ActionScript 3.0 contains a host of powerful new features that can greatly speed the development process
~ ActionScript 3.0 consists of two parts: the core language and the Flash Player API
~ The core language defines the basic building blocks of the programming language, such as statements, expressions, conditions, loops, and types
~ ActionScript 3.0 includes native support for regular expressions so you can quickly search for and manipulate strings

Flash Action Script Topics Covered

Movies That Decide for Themselves
Decision making
Making decisions in ActionScript: The if action
