I have a project where the user imputs some info and the info
is displayed on the next frame.
So on frame 1 I have an imput text component where the user
typs their name. 4 radio buttons to choose what video game console
the like to play. 1 check box that says I enjoy movies. Lastly
there's a button component that goes to the next frame and displays
the info in a text area component.
Which would be like this:
You name is =
Your favorite console is =
You like movies, or you don't like movies
I'm really new to components and I can't figure out how the
gather the info that the user imputs and display it in the text
Any help would be very appreciated.
I'm using flash pro 2004
You will need to store the data from the components on the
first frame into variables and the components on the next frame
will read the variables.
Alternatively you can have all the components on both frames
(one key frame extended) and use the visible property to show the
components appropriate to the frame and hide those that are not.
Then you can use the properties of all the components to share data
between each other. For that matter you only need one frame to do
If you are new to components you need to learn how they get
values if they hold them and how to get values out of them. You
also need to know the events they fire when they receive action
from the user.
Finally I do not know the story, but there may be significant
functional improvements and bug corrections from Flash MX 2004 to
Flash 8. I would suggest not to waste time with MX 2004 and look
get Flash 8 pro when there is a with a free upgrade to Flash CS3
due out soon.
