Flash hit counter per page

Feb 15, 2013 7:26 AM

Hello, I am building a touch screen flash presentation (version 5.5) for an exhibition and would like to track the amount of people veiwing specific pages. I have a hit counter and the button works but when I go to the next page it resets to 1 again.

Is there a way you can save the number of hits so that flash will remember it? Is there a specific code involoved or do I need to link it to a document (ie. txt file)?

Please a little help. Thank you

    There is a way but it is client side so it would not show everyone hitting the page. You would need to set up a server and have the Flash client hit that to preserve data across users.

    if you're installing the app on one computer (eg, a kiosk display), you can save separate hit counts for each page:


    if your app never shuts down, you must have a coding error.  if your app shuts down, use a sharedobject to save the hit counts before your app shuts down.


    if you're displaying on a web server, use server-side code to save the hit counts between web site visitors.
