For the past two days I have been searching google looking
for a tutorial to do the follow, but have not been able to find the
right combination of search words to get what I need. I was hoping
someone here could point me to the right direction.
What I want to do is have a triangle on the screen and to the
side of that triangle three sliding bars where each one controls
one side of the triangle. So if I slide one bar to the right it
will increase the length of one side of the triangle.
And I am a complete novice so this could be extremely easy
(which I hope), but right now I have no clue what to do.
you would use the flash drawing api to redraw your triangle
as a slider is moved.
you'll need to better define your project because changing
the length of 1 side while maintaining the other 2 side's lengths
and specifying one point (the point at the vertex opposite the
changing side which i assume would not move) is not enough to
uniquely define a triangle.
