Trace ("[Message]" & [Variable])

Message - Any string. Can also be used to add meaning to the variable value being displayed.
Variable - The variable to be displayed for testing purposes.

Example uses:
Testing a flash movie.

This a great tool and I wish I had learned this one before any other action. The time and effort I would have saved. This action enables you to output any variable or string for testing purposes into a special window during run time. This has no effect on the size of the movie and does not appear in your final movie.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
