I am a beginner in Flex. I am taking a training. I have a
project to build a quiz and have a graphical bar to display current
score. I also have database with coldfusion interaction that I need
to connect to Flex. I have finished 8 hours of training through
lynda.com. But I am still not getting any idea on building quiz.
My thought on building a quiz set is making one page with one
quiz. And make next button to flip to a next question. But it looks
like Flex does not run that way, not like hyperlinked method.
Please advice on this.
And I want to add a feature the scores learners receive need
to be stored in database through coldfusion. Do I have to use SOAP
for this or other way? Please advice on this. Thank you.
its the by far easiest way to connect to coldfusion, as for
each quiz question, you could go with the very easy route (say you
have 10 questions) and just say
currentState = "questionsone"
on the questionones state, have a little arrow key (or
something) that once it has a click command it goes to
"questiontwo" and it just goes down the states...
or you can do it 100% by actionscript using arrays. Once they
answer a question, just run a method that says "i = i+1"
//i = what question you are on.
maintextbox.text = arrayMainTextname
//i.e. "this is question one"
question1.text = arrayQUESTIONname; // "what is the color
of the sky?"
setting up the questions is the easiest part connecting to a
cold fusion server... it was a pain in the butt, but i eventually
got it going.
