£265.00
 

COURSE CODE 353


 

Enrol onto this Self study, self-paced computer training course. We carry a fantastic range of courses on interactive CD-ROM & DVD. Many of our computer training courses are tracked towards the latest certifications for Microsoft, CompTIA, Adobe, Novell, Oracle, Cisco and more.


 


Experience the Power of Visual Learning. Increase your retention rate, train at your own pace and work alongside industry experts.

Master any software application in days - no expensive classroom training, no boring books to read, just high quality training that plays on your own computer, at a price that you never thought possible.

Get up and running on the newest version of ActionScript, which is included with Flash CS3. If you are new to ActionScript 3.0, this series shows you how to make your Flash applications more dynamic by using the scripting language to add interactivity and control effects. If you are already familiar with ActionScript 2 from Flash 7 or 8, our video tutorials help you make the switch with minimum effort with updates about the new changes in naming, syntax and Class structure.

Note: If you would like to learn how to use ActionScript 1 or 2, we have two series that cover these topics. While these tutorials are demonstrated in Flash 8 Pro, your applications still work just as well with Flash CS3 Professional:

Highlights

    *
      Review the Panel basics in ActionScript 3 and see how to set up the ActionScript preferences, using the Reference Library and the Script Selection panel.
    * Learn how to use dot syntax notation and how to write ActionScript 3 structures, and find out how to debug them when things go wrong.
    * Discover how to use properties and methods for ActionScript 3 built in classes for complete control of MovieClips, TextFields and Sounds.
    * Build event handlers for ActionScript 3 built-in classes to add interactivity and respond to both user generated events as well as program events like sounds and data loading.
    * Make and use your own custom classes so you can modify existing classes like custom buttons, and get more reusability from your applications and animated MovieClips.

This course is PC and MAC compatible
