ActionScripting Basics: Find and Replace


The Replace function is similar to the Find function, but it takes it one step further: it lets you replace one or one dozen strings of matched text with another. I’ve found this especially useful when I change the name of one of my instances on my stage, and need to go through my ActionScripts to change every last reference to the old instance name so that it reflects the new instance name.
