If you're a true Flash master--and we're betting you are--you know that the real power behind the throne in Macromedia's wildly popular Web animation software is its programming language: ActionScript 2.0. Offering a more robust programming model and better object-oriented programming support than ever before, ActionScript 2.0 allows you to take your Flash MX 2004 designs to new levels--if, that is, you know how to make full use of it. This volume, from the folks behind the software, makes sure that you do! In this highly cross-referenced dictionary, you'll find detailed descriptions of every ActionScript operator, keyword, statement, action, property, function, object, component, and method. What's more, an invaluable chart will help you locate definitions for symbolic operators or methods even when you don't know the object or component class. To top it all off, Macromedia has rounded up a posse of Flash and ActionScripting luminaries to contribute articles on a range of topics--from converting ActionScript 1.0 to ActionScript 2.0 to using design patterns in Flash.
