Events and actions
Events are occurrences that happen in Edge Animate that it can detect and respond to. When an event is detected, you provide actions as a response.
It’s useful to think of interactions in terms of events and actions. When you click on a menu button (event), more options may expand (actions). When you roll over a button (event), a triangular play icon may appear on it (actions). In the next section, you’ll add thumbnail images to the Stage. When the user clicks on each thumbnail (event), the playhead will move to a new position on the Timeline (actions) to show a particular image from the travel slideshow.
