ActionScript For Loop Code
When you want your code to repeat the same task many times, you can use a code loop in ActionScript. Basically, this is code that uses an incremental counter to count the number of times the loop is performed. We then tell Flash to repeat the loop until a certain number is reached.

Flash CS3 and AS 3.0 - Snow Scene
In the next few tutorials we will create a particle system snow scene animation with ActionScript and Flash. There are many snowflakes falling and each flake is one instance of the same movie clip. So we need an ActionScript modular function to animate all of the snowflakes on the stage.

Flash CS3 and AS 3.0 - Snow Scene - 2
In the next few tutorials we will create a particle system snow scene animation with ActionScript and Flash. There are many snowflakes falling and each flake is one instance of the same movie clip. So we need an ActionScript modular function to animate all of the snowflakes on the stage.

ActionScript 3.0 Event Listeners and Handlers
In this tutorial, we will introduce event listeners and event handlers for Flash and ActionScript 3.0. You will use this code if you want to run a function when an event occurs. We will draw a star in the center of the stage and then rotate the star.

Movie Clip Properties with AS 3.0
In this tutorial, we will explore the properties for a Movie Clip object in the Properties Inspector and then write ActionScript 3.0 code that will set values for these properties.

Movie Clip Properties with AS 3.0 - 2
In this tutorial, we will explore the properties for a Movie Clip object in the Properties Inspector and then write ActionScript 3.0 code that will set values for these properties.

Flash ActionScript and Data Types
In this tutorial, we will learn how to declare a data type for a new variable.
