DescriptionActionConsole is a small and effective input/output console for actionscript 3. You can use it in any Flash (9 and up), Flex and AIR project.
The console is a hidden tool that runs inside your project, it can be opened with a shortcut. Opening the console can extend the functionality of your project for debugging purpose or otherwise.

ActionConsole has input functionality. A user can type text into the console and you can have your application read out this input in various ways. For instance, you could use ActionConsole to tweak a value of some variable inside your application at runtime, or call a certain method when some text is inputted into the console. You're building a simple CLI into your application in just minutes.
ActionConsole also has output functionality. You can have your application write data into the console, and you can read that data at runtime by just opening up the tool using the shortcut. This makes ActionConsole a powerful debugging tool, no debug player is needed.
StatusActionConsole is currently under development. A somewhat stable beta release is planned. We encourage you to use the latest revision in your project while developing. If you encounter problems please report them, feature requests are also welcome. However, since ActionConsole is not tested enough it's not recommended that you leave the tool in when releasing your application to the public. There might be some serious CPU or memory issues that we haven't discovered yet.
