We have many existing quizzes created with Authorware which
we want to recreate using Flash CS3. I have been working on this
project for about a month and the main issue I see is duplicating
the user interactivity of Authorware with respect to text input and
key presses from a keyboard.
When an Authorware quiz starts, a student can immediately
enter text into a text box. In Flash, the student must first click
in the text input box and then enter the text. In the Authorware
quiz, a student can press a key on the keyboard but in Flash, the
student must click on the stage before the key press is recognized.
Can I duplicate the interactivity of Authorware in Flash or
must the student using the Flash quiz always have to click on the
text input box or the stage first before entering text or pressing
a key on the keyboard?
Since I am new to Flash, there may be basic concepts I might
be missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
