    Touch Screens to Flash

    Level 7
      I have a client wanting me to bid on a touch screen solution like this...

      http://www.spaceneedle.com/odeck/skyq_vignette.asp

      I am envisioning a web browser with a home page set to the swf file but with
      touch screen capabilities.

      Anyone been down this road?

          Touchscreen is no different from regular flash, just do not use any roll over
          events because touch screen does not detect these. Regular PRESS and rest of the
          flash can be just like any other project you have made. No difference whatsoever.

          I would not go into browser tho, why not just full screen projector file? Tuned up
          with 3rd party tools like Jugglor ( http://www.flashjester.com), you could make custom
          shape, stretch it across multiple screen, set up skins, positioning on screen, and
          lots lots more. I have been using Jugglor almost a decade for all my touch screen
          interactive content, good stuff.

              Hello Urami

              I'm a newbie looking to do something with Flash on a touchscreen as well. I want to be able to press a button to initiate a transformation. I reckon that my background could be an EPS or Tiff file, it wouldn't matter. But the series of flash movies would rest in their respective places, each with their own buttons. Please correct me about anything I've just written.

              A couple of questions:
              1) Would the movies have to be FLV or can they stay .swf?

              2) Since there's no "over" step for the buttons, would they just have a "down" frame and that's it?

              3) When working with large interactive displays, how do you load your file?

              Any other insights you might have on working with touch displays and flash would be greatly appreciated.

              Thanx
