This is Part 1 of a 2 Part series. Now we begin to examine conditional statements. The IF statement allows the application to make decisions as our ActionScript code executes. These determinations or decisions are made based on the current conditions of the application, most developers use conditional statements to control the flow of the code as it executes. In this tutorial we discuss how conditions are met in our ActionScript code, we discuss the different types of operators, both comparison and conditional that can be used in conditional statements for their evaluation. We also discuss how ActionScript can determine the position of an object, and then based on that position execute different code structures. We demonstrate the IF statement both with and without using an ELSE statement. We also demonstrate using multiple conditions in our evaluation of the IF statement.
