    Course Details

    This 3-day Introduction course gives existing Flash users the know-how to use code to apply enhancements to a wide array of design projects. Together, we will go through the fundamental techniques that apply not only to ActionScript but also to other programming languages. We begin by introducing core concepts such as instance names, variables, functions, properties, and methods. Afterwards, we go on to cover conditions, loops, event handling, and animating with ActionScript.

    Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

    • Declare variables and their data types
    • Assign instance names and property values
    • Control button and movie clip positions and states
    • Transform objects and colours
    • Execute conditional code and loops
    • Write your own custom functions

    Our goal is to give you a comprehensive grounding in the concepts and techniques used to apply programmed enhancements to your Flash projects.

    Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites:

    This course is for Flash designers who have some experience in Flash design and who would like to learn basic and intermediate ActionScript.

    You will need basic experience in using Flash. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe Flash CC Design Introduction 2 Day course.
