A Memopad, using the new MX Shared Object

By Joachim Schnier


This tutorial shows you how to make use of a new feature of Flash MX, the shared object. At the same time you will learn how to use radiobuttons as event handlers like real buttons.

The shared object is a new feature of Flash MX and works like a cookie. When you type text into a textfield and this text is defined as a shared object, the text will be remembered even you close the file. This is also true when a file containing one or more shared objects is on a server. The point here is that the path on your computer is important. When you change this path by putting the file into a different location you will not be able to see the information you have stored but it will be recovered if you put the file back into its original location. Macromedia has also a tutorial on this, where the number of times you opened a file is counted (Shared Object).

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
