I am putting together an interactive Newsletter for my staff that will be distributed monthly and each one will have a custom game or puzzle. I know I could do a crossword puzzle with text boxes, but is there a way to do a word search where the found words can be highlighted in the game and the list of words can be crossed off? I can add checkboxes by the list of words if need be, but is there a way to allow the reader to highlight or circle the words within the word search as they find them?
sure. you can use mousedown code to start a loop that checks the mouse/finger position and determine (on mouseup) if a word has been found and then display a highlight sprite/movieclip.
