  3. On keyframes, on button instances, and on movie clip instances.


What is an action, anyway?

  2. An instruction snippet that tells Flash what to do

  3. What programmers call a function


How many actions can you place in one button?

  1. One for each mouse event

  2. No more than two

  3. As many as you want

Quiz Answers


C. Remember you don't put actions inside master button symbols! Of course, within master movie clips you can have actions in keyframes and buttons, but Answer C covers those places.


B. Action is a pretty generic term, so Answer B is the best of these definitions. (In fact it's so general that I cringe every time I say action but it sure is easier than defining dozens of other terms.)


C. There's really no limit to how many actions you can place in one button, although there are some restrictions against illogical sequences (for example, you can't have two gotoAndPlay actions in a row). One event could result in many actions being executed, and you can have several events within one button.
