Sample text

For example: var speed; var bookTitle; var x; The word var tells the interpreter that we're declaring a variable, and the moniker that follows, such as speed, bookTitle, or x, becomes our new variable's name. We can create variables anywhere we can attach code: on a keyframe, a button, or a movie clip. If you enter code in the Actions panel while on a frame that is not a keyframe, the code is attached to the nearest preceding keyframe. We can also declare several variables with one var statement, like this: var x, y, z; Part I: ActionScript Fundamentals 51 52 Part I: ActionScript Fundamentals However, doing so impairs our ability to add comments next to each variable.
