In Brief

  • ActionScript 2.0 offers a range of structures for object-oriented programming.

  • Classes can be created as separate AS files using the new Script Editor.

  • AS files can be placed anywhere and are automatically found by the ActionScript created in the Actions panel through a user-defined path.

  • You can create simple and sophisticated scripts using the Behaviors panel without having to write a program in the Actions panel.

  • The Actions panel has a single scripting mode with code hints that appear automatically when suffixes are used with variable and object names.

  • ActionScript 2.0 is case sensitive and uses strong typing of variables.

  • ActionScript 2.0 has adapted the ECMA v.4 standards and performs very much like JavaScript 2.0, but ActionScript 2.0 still maintains its unique Flash-related terms.
