Step 3

So far we have two text fields on the stage and a function on frame 1. Now we're going to "connect" the actionscript with the text field on the stage.

We wanted the empty text field to be updated when the user presses either A or C, this is easily done with a simple If condition. Inside the function we enter this code below the excisting code:

if (char == "A") {
charshow = "Action aborted!";
clearInterval( charID );
if (char == "C") {
charshow = "Action approved!";
clearInterval( charID );

What this code does is that it checks if the variable char is either A or C. When the user presses A or C it updates the variable charshow. charshow is the variable we gave to the empty text field. The clearInterval stops the function.

Note: Flash doesn't use case sensitivity for this, so be sure to use capital A and C in the code above

Now your actionscript should look like this:

That's it!

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.
