What are some of the hidden features of ActionScript?

ActionScript is widely used language. It has been around for so many years.

So at least from the existing features, do you know any that are not well known but very useful.

Of course, this question is along the lines of:

Hidden Features of JavaScript
Hidden Features of CSS
Hidden Features of C#
Hidden Features of VB.NET
Hidden Features of Java
Hidden Features of ASP.NET
Hidden Features of Python
Hidden Features of TextPad
Hidden Features of Eclipse
Hidden Features of HTML

Do not mention features of ActionScript 2.0, since it is quite old and not eweryone can understend it now

Please specify one feature per answer.

Note that it's not always a great idea to use these hidden features; often times they are surprising and confusing to others reading your code.
