Book News Annotation:

An introduction and reference to the ActionScript scripting language for experienced Flash developers. Sanders (University of Hartford) provides a brief description of the Actions panel before diving into ActionScript's core actions, operators, functions, properties, and constants. An example accompanies each term. The guide then defines the characteristics of most ActionScript objects—including the Movie folder objects new to Flash MX—and lists the new user interface components.
