C programming language -

Data Types







ActionScript is the programming language of the Flash Player runtime. Originally developed as a way for Flash developers to program interactivity, ActionScript enables efficient programming of Flash applications for everything from simple animations to complex, data-rich, interactive application interfaces.

Discover the benefits of learning Action Script
Learn to navigate and use the Action Script editor
Learn about script elements
Plan a project
Write your first script
Test your script
Debug your script

Phase II

Learn how event handlers are used in script
Determine the best event handler for the job
Use mouse/buttton/keyboard events to control interactivity
Create a self-running presentation using frame events
Use clip events to create an interactive project
Orchestrate multiple events to accomplish a task
Define and use event handler methods
Learn about Listener and how to use them

Phase III

Gain an understanding of the hierarchy of timelines in Flash movies
Learn about absolute and relative target paths
Learn how movies communicate with each other
Use the parent-chid relationship in movies to creates an "effect" Clip
Control specific timelines within a single project
Control movies loaded into levels
Learn how to make global references to various Action Script elements.

Phase IV

Learn what objects/object classes are and why they are useful
Get acquainted the various classes of objects available in Action Script
Use the color class
Create an interactive scene using the key object class
Create a word processor using properties and methods of the string and selection object classes

Phase V

Create a function

Use overriding
Create custom object classes
Associate a custom class with a movie clip in the library

Phase VIII

Learn how to use if, if/else and if/else if statements to control the flow of a script
Explore the various operators used in conditional logic
Script a project to react to various conditions
Create a scripted boundary to restrict an object's movement

Create a nested loop
Use loop exceptions

Phase X

Learn how to set and get component property values
