ActionScript for Flash 5 is a quantum leap from previous versions of this scripting language for Flash. Using ActionScript, the Flash 5 developer can add interactive functionality like never before, and this book explains and shows (with plenty of projects and examples) how to get the most out of Flash 5 using AcitonScript. The book covers all major concepts in ActionScript for Flash 5 including the actions (statements), operators (which have changed significantly from previous versions), functions (including user-functions), properties, and the many new objects and their methods. Ten chapters lead the reader through all the elements of the new ActionScript, and an Example Glossary provides a quick lookup with an example script for all of the many actions, operators, functions, and properties. The book's CD-ROM includes the source files (FLA) and the SWF files so that the reader can both examine the coding for all the projects and run them. Flash 5 trial software is included as well so that the reader can try out the new version prior to a purchase decision.
