I am working on a new flash project that allows the user to prepare artwork using the .swf flash file and allows them to overlay hypertext links into their artwork. The output of this custom content is needed to be saved as a .swf file itself, so that it can be used independantly. The new .swf file would essentially just be a single frame with the interactive artwork on.
Any ideas how this could be acheived?
Maybe use a simple user text input flash program as an example and get that to output the text as a frame in a new .swf?
there are two very distinct things: one is to emit an actual swf, and the other one is to tell an existing swf to show something....
Now assume your user can choose a few symbols from the library and drag them around .... and imagine an xml file that liss the symbol name and its coordinates on stage as well as its scaling factor.
Next assume the user can click somewhere to type text ... and imagine the xml file to contain text entries with actual text, font size, and coordinates
I did something with AS2 following this scheme: a server script copied the existing swf and added an actionscript block equivalent to the above-mentioned xml file. I have not studied details of AS3 files enough to tell whether the same is possible with AS3, but I sort of believe that an xml string embedded as a byte string could be amended / replaced in a similar way
