Example text

Q1answer, as opposed to just q1answer). gotoAndStop("q2"); Line 2 calls the gotoAndStop( ) function, passing it the frame label "q2" as an argument, which advances the movie's playhead to the frame q2, where Question 2 appears. However, once again we must specify, in relation to the button clicked, precisely which movie clip's playhead should move to the label q2. _parent. Each of our answer buttons performs the same basic tasks (sets q1answer and displays frame q2). Hence, the three button event handlers differ in only two ways: • Each specifies a different button instance name (choice1_btn, choice2_btn, choice3_btn).

Between the parentheses, we list the arguments that our function receives every time it's used: height and width. And between the curly braces ({ }), we include the statement we want executed: return height * width; After we create a function, we may run the code it contains from anywhere in our movie by using the function's name. In our example we called the area( ) function five times, passing it the height and width values it expects each time: area(10, 15), area(11, 16), and so on. The result of each calculation is returned to us, and we store those results in the variables area1 through area5.

The first operation joins its first operand, "Hi there, " to the value of its second operand, firstName. " to the result of the first operation. The closing parenthesis marks the end of our argument, and the semicolon once again terminates our statement. Technically, parentheses demarcate a list of one or more arguments. If a command requires more than one argument, the arguments are separated by commas (the commas in the preceding example are part of the text, because they are enclosed in quotes, and should not be confused with commas used to separate multiple arguments, as shown later).
