This ActionScript function is bit more complicated when compared with the previous example. However the function syntax is almost the same. In this ActionScript function tutorial, two values are sent to the function to process. The whole process is better to illustrate with the following diagram.

Flash ActionScript Codes:

// Create a custom function
// The name of function is displayMyAge
// Two values (one is String and one is Number) will be
// sent into the function to process when being called
// The function will not return a value, therefore use void for the Return Data Type
function showMyAge (myName:String, myAge:Number):void {
// The codes below will be executed when being called or run
// The parameter myName (String) will be act as a variable that equal to "Alex"
// The parameter myAge (Number) will be act
output_txt.text = "My name is " + myName + ". I am " + myAge + " years old.";


// Run or call the function with the function name (displayMyAge)
// Two values ("Alex" and 25) are sent to the function when run
// These two values must match the data type of the Argument parameters
// specified in the function
showMyAge ("Alex", 25);
