The Lingo Handbook is the only guide to Lingo designed specifically for beginning Lingo programmers. Nothing's assumed. Nothing's glossed over. Nothing's more complicated than it needs to be. Every step of the way, you'll find simple, meaningful examples based on tasks and projects you'll really care about - and complete scripts you can adapt to your own work. Learn how Lingo fits into the Director environment. Walk carefully through the basics of Lingo syntax, interactivity, decision-making, and looping. Learn how to troubleshoot scripts and avoid pitfalls. Then, discover powerful, surprisingly easy Lingo techniques for: building slick user interfaces; making the most of sound, sprites, graphics, color palettes, and QuickTime movies; managing text and fields; and developing Web multimedia with Shockwave.
