Identifier Parameter

ActionStep Reference » Programming » Identifier » Identifier Parameter

The ActionStep Define Parameter creates a new parameter. The chosen parameter name must be unique and it can consist of any character (numbers, letters and special characters). It may also contain spaces that increase its readability. Parameters are defined in the Local Context, so they are valid only within the ActionScript. 

Information Parameters are best used in child ActionScripts that are called by the master ActionScript.
