What is ActionScript

ActionScript is an object-oriented programming language. The keywords used in ActionScript such as class, interface, and packages are similar to Java. If you have learned JavaScript, the learning curve for ActionScript is very low.


History

In 2000, together with Flash 5, the "actions" of Flash 4 were enhanced and renamed to ActionScript, greatly influenced by JavaScript and ECMA-262.

ActionScript 2.0

In 2003 ActionScript 2.0 was introduced with Flash 7. It brings important features, such as Type casting, Exception handling and proper classes.

ActionScript 3.0

in 2006 ActionsScript 3.0 was released with Flash 9. It is a big refurbishment of the language, using a different virtual machine.
