Testing device features can be complicated, especially if you have to load each build onto test hardware each time you make a change. If you're using the device simulator built into Flash, you can access hardware-specific features — like geolocation and accelerometer — from your development PC. Fire up the simulator, open the control panel and use your mouse or trackpad to set a position.
Similarly you can apply a touch layer to a simulation and use your mouse to simulate one of a range of different gestures and actions. First choose the mouse or trackpad action you want to use, and then select the gesture it simulates. Select Swipe here to make a mouse click-and-drag behave just like a finger swipe, triggering the touch actions you've added to your code. Changing the gesture lets you simulate a range of different interactions without having to load development code onto a test device.
