Sorry - couldn't think how to summarise that better.
Basically, I'm a web designer, who has only ever really dabbled with Flash in the past, but am comfortable with timelines etc.
I was just looking at FC at last (as I have Design Premium), and in particular the video tutorials on Lynda.com
For reference, 1. Quick Start Creating a Wireframe > Planning your project is a free sample here:
The jist is that its a little widget with three states:
1. A little search for a vacation type.
2. A results page that lets people either click a button to search again, or click another button to visit the web site of the holiday company.
3. A page advising the user that they are being directed to the holiday company site.
So I understand the concepts of having different states, and adding the interactions and transitions between the different states.
What I'm not sure is how to tell FC to direct the user to the correct result depending on which holiday option they choose?
Or if its even possible - I've had a look at all this stuff before, have never quite been sure how Flash / Catalyst / Flex / Air / Builder all fit together!
Any pointers on this would be appreciated though, thanks.
Have a list or combo box that the user can choose the holiday and create a transaction for each of the items in the list to move to the perticular state in the application for that holiday. If you want the holiday to appear automatically based on the current date you would need to program that in Flash Builder.
Thanks - I wasn't quite sure how far FC could go, and was starting to think that it might need Flash Builder / Action Script to do the useful stuff.
But rummaging some more I was going to just ask if that sort of thing was possible, ie just create a few more states for each item in the drop down to jump to. Which looks like something you can do now in 5.5, if not in 5.
