We have an Arabic educational application published originally as projector for desktop use. Since Director don't support “right to left” languages, the application uses an ActivX component to call external encoded html and load it into a textarea container, in this way the Arabic language can be written and redden.
We are up to make this application to work on the web as shockwave movie. We have published it as dcr file and compressed all medias successfully but we have an error that comes in the preloading time that say :" ActiveX field to initialize or missing"/ i understand dcr cannot use ActiveX becuase the browser wont let this ActiveX file to be installed for security reasons.
as i been adviced here, i used flash movie as a spirite , it seems ok, i also can write text and no errors but now im facing the other problem. the typed words sould be passed to lingo, for example there is a " speed typing" test which checks if all the typed words are correct.
the application uses:
sprite(120).navigate(the moviePath & "assets\t.html")
to load the html into the textarea and uses and :
on hideQuitDialog me
if the frame > 45 then
mySprite.locV = 485
mySprite.puppet = 0
now that i use swf as the input container what code i can use so the characters being typed on the swf textarea also can be sent to the lingo script?
