This is Part 1 of a 3 Part series. Events are a very important part of ActionScript. They allow us to add interactivity and to communicate with our applications. Without events, there would be no way of detecting user interaction with our applications. Events also allow us to be notified when things occur in our application, this can be very important to the proper execution of our applications. In this tutorial we begin to look at the Mouse Events in ActionScript. During the tutorial I introduce Event Listeners, the CLICK event, MOUSE_OVER and MOUSE_OUT events and how they are detected in our ActionScript code. During the tutorial we also discuss the button Mode, use Hand Cursor and visible properties of our objects ActionScript 3.
