Introduction

ActionScript is the programming language that enables you to use Macromedia’s popular Flash to create highly interactive multimedia-based websites, product demos, teaching materials, and more. If you’re familiar with the logic of other programming languages, especially JavaScript or Java, ActionScript will seem quite familiar. After you learn the logic behind how scripting works, as well as the many things it allows you to create and do, chances are you’ll wish you had started sooner. Creativity isn’t reserved for artists and designers, after all; scripting is another form of creativity and is equally as rewarding. With a thorough knowledge of ActionScript, you can express yourself in many ways you may never have imagined.
