Adobe Director Lingo Behaviors


Though Adobe Director is no longer published as of January 2017, I spent a number of years developing Adobe Director Movies. This page contains a list of behaviors that might be interesting or useful for Lingo enthusiasts. Lingo is a high level scripting language that is very human readable. The code examples below might have useful tidbits for anyone looking for programming examples or general algorithms that can be adapted to other programming languages.
