I am pretty new to Flex 2 and have only got it on trial, so
excuse my lack of flex and actionscript knoledge.
I am eager to learn and want to make a simple game. The game
is based on general knoledge. There will be 5 thumbnails down the
left hand side of a panel. The thumbs will be of well-known logos,
such as McDonalds, Burger King, Disney, etc. Next to each thumbnail
will be a TextInput box and next to each of those will be a
uneditable text box.
What I want to do is to program it so that if the user enters

nothing, or the incorrect answer, the uneditable text box will say
incorrect. I think that you have to use actionscript, but I don't
know how to use it with the IF command correctly.

is all I have got. When I try to run it, it errors.

to play the game. I understand that you have to use states and have
a button that has the code that is something lke this
click"changeState". And when it does change state, I would like it
to use a transitional effect so that the size changes smoothly.
