This chapter covered a lot of information on ActionScript. Do not feel alarmed if some concepts were difficultthey are covered in more detail as you continue through the following chapters.

A few key points to remember are

  • Objects have three features:

    • Properties. Information about the object

    • Methods. What the object does

    • Events. Let Flash know when something happens with the object

  • Use strict data typing to help debug applications early in development.

  • Comment your code. If you're in doubt whether or not it's important enough to comment, comment it.

  • Set the preferences of the Actions panel to your liking. You are going to be using it a lot from here on out, and it should be just the way you want it.

  • Use code hints to help keep track of individual objects' code.
