You might start by building a form to request whatever info you want,
add some validation, and save it. There are a number of different ways
to do any/all of these steps, but it's difficult to make a
recommendation as your question is pretty vague
Yeah, can you give us any more info about what you want to do?
I'll try to be more clear. I'm sort of a beginner here so please bear with me. I have a kiosk that will describe to our patients the type of medical procedure they will be having. I would like for them to input their name and dob so I will need this info stored somehow, somewhere. Then as they go from page to page on the kiosk I would like to be able to record that they have visited that page and if they click on button to say they want more info that may have not been covered in the kiosk I would like to be able to "notify" someone in our office that the patient needs more info. Since I am a beginner please use "small" words and phrases with me. My boss is willing to purchase xtras and training materials to teach me how to do this I just don't know where to start. Thanks so much for your help.
If you mark each section of your movie's score with frame labels, then
you can grab the latest frame label each time the user hits the "more
info" button. You can keep the names of each of those frame labels in a
You can build a simple matrix of marker name to info needed. When the
user finishes, you can then write out a text file of each of the subject
areas that correspond to each of the stored marker names. Then you can
send that text file to a printer.
If you are planning to do this in the US, then be aware that this sort
of thing will violate most patient confidentiality laws. You'll need to
display a lengthy confidentiality agreement for the user to agree to.
This will stop most users dead in their tracks.
You may want to think about doing this in an anonymous way. If the
printer is at the kiosk, then a user can use your application without
having to enter any personal information. Then you can print out their
list of needs directly to the user. This user can then give the list to

Here is a link to a website that makes these. I know how to do all of this in director except how to collect and store the data. Any ideas?
Normally I don't comment on other people's work, good or bad. I have to
break with convention here. This is possibly the worst thing that I've
ever seen. The page takes an absurdly long time to load and then the
payoff is a completely irrelevent, confusing, meaningless mishmash of
clip art, seemingly, randomly flying around on the screen.
The only thing that I learned while watching this presentation was that
the company that made this has a very cynical view of what the public
will put up with.
I'm hoping that what you are proposing to do will be a better effort
than this example. In any case, I don't see anywhere where patient
information is taken in. Maybe I missed it in the barrage of flying clip

I do apologize for offending you! This was just one example I found. What we will be collecting is...the patient's name, dob, whether or not they looked at each section and if they have any questions. As far as what the public wants...we educate ALL out patients before they have even the slightest procedure done. Then we get their consent to do the procedure. We make the info as interesting as possible but we are more concerned with helping the patient (no matter what age or education level) to understand what is about to be done to them and what if any risks or benefits there might be to having this particular procedure done. Many are moving toward electronic consent and EVERYTHING we do is within the limits, laws, regulations of ALL medical governing bodies. So...whether we like someones content, artistic talents or not is not my issue. Forgive me if I'm not explaining clearly...we want to collect these data into a file that could be sorted/searched manipulated say in access or maybe just excel. Can you please help me?
In my first message I explained how you can build a reference for each
section of your content by using frame labels. As the user moves through
the movie, you can collect each label for the area that the user visits.
If there is any additional interaction, asking questions, etc, you can
keep the answers.
Now you will have a bunch of text, divided by meaning. You could make a
property list to hold all of this information. Then you could dump that
list out as a text file. You can then import the text file into a data
How does that sound?

Now you're starting to provide some useful information. Why not store
the info in an Access DB from within Director?
Storing in an access database would be perfect. I just don't know how to do this. Can you point me in the right direction?
