As any Flash developer worth his or her salt knows, you're not tapping all of the program's power unless you're taking advantage of its scripting language. Not to worry: With Flash 8's improved scripting language (which includes a visual interface!) and this project-based guide you don't have to be a master programmer to do so. In these pages authors Jobe Makar and Danny Patterson, use hands-on lessons and simple, step-by-step instructions to translate real-life activities into scripts, in the process demonstrating that scripting is something you already instinctively know how to do. To that end, the authors have provided methodologies and techniques for building nearly 40 real-life Flash 8 ActionScript projects, including sample games, wireless applications, Web sites, and more—all of which will help you work faster and more efficiently.
