Hi all, I suppose this should be 2 posts but I just need to
know how to approach this problem. I am knew to Flex 2, PHP, MySQL
but am familiar with Java and know a little ActionScript and Flash.
Everything I write in this post will be referring to an image you
can find here: (it's the only image of consequence on the blog so
you can't get confused):
1. I would like to convert this image into a flex 2 chart or
link it to a DataGrid or input system so that as the user enters
values for each category the image will be dynamically updated.
There are 11 categories and 3 values for each, all of which I
intend to store a MySQL database.
I have set it up so that I have a movie clip for each of the
colored segments in the chart (green, yellow, orange - the blue one
is there in case you are wondering what I mean by a segment). I
figure I can find someway to make ActionScript show these at
runtime based on the user's input. If someone has a better way of
doing this I would appreciate that as well. If possible I would
like to link the image/ chart directly to the database so that the
user could just click on the image to input values.
2. When they are done I would need some way to store the
final image (as PDF, JPEG, whatever) with currently shown segments
so that it can be printed or put into a presentation in some way.
3. I need it to be a chart or to make particular segments
recognizable as I need to link it to other information (text) from
a form (which will also be stored on the database and linked to the
chart by date and category).
Any help would be appreciated (sorry if this was long)
