The ComboBox component

The ComboBox component is used to provide a standard list from which a user can select a value. The component is found in the Flash UI Components and has a number of properties that can be changed through the property inspector. There are also a number of methods that can be accessed through actionscript.

The component is similar to the HTML select element. It has a label - the text that a user sees in the drop down box - as well as data - information that can be accessed programatically.

In this this tutorial we'll create a ComboBox populated with site URLs as shown below. In our example, the site name will be the label for the ComboBox. The data will be the URL of the web site. When a user selects the site, they'll be taken to that URL.

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.
