Chapter 2. Runtime Environment

Introduction

Flash Player 6 offers a relatively large amount of information about and control over the runtime environment. ActionScript’s System.capabilities object returns information about the Player and the computer on which it is running, such as the operating system, language, and audio capabilities. The System object also allows you to control some elements of the Player such as the right-click menu under Windows (Ctrl-click on the Macintosh) and the Settings dialog box. The Stage object controls the scaling and alignment of the movie within the Player.
