    outputting code in flash

    michele1200
      Hi, I just took a training class in Flash and I was told Flash no longer outputs the (actionscript) codes? You have to know how to write the action scripts by hand? Is this correct??

      For Instance: If I created mouseovers in Fireworks, the program would output the code I could then copy into an HTML file.

      thanks.

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

          Ah, maybe you mean the Behaviors panel. The Behaviors panel is
          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 of
          ActionScript you're using. If your FLA file is configured for ActionScript
          3.0, then you can' use the on() or onClipEvent() functions anymore, because
          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.
