Actionscript for Flash 5 dummies - Creating radio buttons - Page 6
As you can see, creating radio buttons in Flash is not quite as easy as in HTML. The great thing, however, about decision elements in Flash is that you can have instant or almost instant feedback.
Consider the same a|b|c|d type questionnaire in Flash and in HTML, where you only see one question per page. In HTML, you would have to load a new page every time a new question is asked; in Flash, however, you would have only one download. You could produce instant gratification to the user without worries of incompatibilities with different browsers and operating systems. You could even create an animated bar chart of the results! Just imagine the possibilities.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Next time, we'll learn how to create a time machine and go back in time to prevent Netscape 4 from being released. No, seriously, I'm still looking for suggestions for new tutorials. Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as any questions or problems you might have.
As always, if you want to be reminded of upcoming tutorials, please send a blank e-mail to email@example.com with "subscribe" in the subject line.
Until next time, happy scripting!
