Actions and ActionScript

Is there a different between Actions and Actionscript?
Like I can push buttons and get gotoandplay(), but that’s not defining variables and doing programming stuff. I kinda figured that maybe the preprogrammed functions are Actions and when you do programming it’s Actionscript. Am I wrong or what’s the answer? Thanks! :slight_smile:

actionscript is the scripting behind those actions…even if u press a button in normal mode it still writes code :slight_smile:

actionscript = the entire language name
action = the piece of actionscript code you use to create “action” in your movie.
