When you test a SWF file in Adobe Flash Professional, the Output panel displays information to help you troubleshoot the ActionScript logic in your SWF file. To show this information, add
trace() statements to your code or use the List Objects and List Variables commands.
If you use the
trace() statement in your scripts, you can send specific information to the Output panel as the SWF file runs. This could include notes about the SWF file's status or the value of an expression.
To display or hide the Output panel, choose Window > Output or press F2.
Here is a partial list of the commands you can select in the Output Panel menu:
For more information, read the documentation on the
trace() function in the ActionScript 2 Language Reference. To learn more about working with the Output panel, see the section titled Output panel overview in the Flash documentation.
