Huh? I'm honestly not even sure what that means. Do you mean
text to the Output panel? If so, Flash still does that, no
version of ActionScript you're using.

Ah, maybe you mean the Behaviors panel. The Behaviors panel
something that writes automatic code snippets for you based
on a few
mouse-click configurations. Dreamweaver has a similar
Behaviors panel. If
that's what you're after, then it all depends on what version
ActionScript you're using. If your FLA file is configured for
3.0, then you can' use the on() or onClipEvent() functions
AS3 no longer supports them. The Behaviors panel relies on
the on() and
onClipEvent() functions, and therefore isn't available for
AS3 FLAs. If
your FLA is configured for ActionScript 2.0 or 1.0, then you
can still use
those functions, and the Behaviors panel works again.
