1)First of all, we have to create the base of the button, what it means:

- The button background
- Empty text

2)Once we have done this, we have to create a new xml object after declaring variables correctly:

tabs_xml = new XML();
tabs_xml.ignoreWhite = true;
var rootNode = tabs_xml.firstChild;
tabs_xml.onLoad = function() {

3)The next tep is reading the xml file to create as many buttons as items we have in our xml.

4)Inside XML function we create a function to control actions once we press on it.

5)In the end, outside the main function, we load the XML file


6)If any question, don't hesitate to ask.

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
