Book Description

This is the eBook version of the printed book.

This project-based guide from Adobe will teach readers all they need to know to create engaging interactive content with ActionScript 3.0 for Flash Professional CS5. Using step-by-step instructions with projects that build on the knowledge acquired in each lesson, readers will learn the fundamentals of adding interactivity to Flash files using ActionScript, starting with using prewritten Code Snippets, but progressing to customizing and writing their own ActionScript code.

The tutorials start with simple navigation and timeline control and progress through controlling animation with ActionScript; using Event Listeners and writing event-handling functions; and controlling loading of and interaction with data, text, video, sound, and images. Readers will also learn to use third-party libraries and create Adobe Air applications. This Classroom in a Book also covers the improved text-handling tools that are new to Flash Professional CS5. The companion CD provides users with all the sample files they need to complete all the projects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful 20 April 2011
Format:Paperback
This Book was a godsend, it helped me get up to speed from no knowledge in Action Script 3.0 and I was able to familiarise myself with the basics and see what I could do with AS3.0

The only gripe I have with the book is that at the end of the lessons it reccomends things to try with the program you just created but a lot of them seem a bit ambiguous and I couldn't figure out how to do the majority of them.

Anyone looking to start learning this is a must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for anyone new to AS 3.0 9 Feb. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The best tutorial book I've ever used, great for anyone whether you know anything about programming or not. The lesson files are available for download if you get the Kindle version, so just disregard Daniel Seager's two star review. The book is very well written and explains everything in detail.

I don't actually have this book, but if it's like all the other Adobe Classroom In A Book editions, the exercise files are available for download. The link is usually near the end of the book.
