The Actionscript: function onChange(component)

As the last step we now define the function onChange with the argument component, which indicates to flash that this is a function for a component.

    //the function onChange is defined for components, in this case radio buttons. Our function basically consists of a number of if statements. What we do is we ask if the value, which we previously set for a radio button is identical (==) to that button. If so then make the movieclip box visible and execute the function createNewLocal(weekDay); where we replace weekDay with the actual day. And that´s it.
    function onChange(component){  
    			//we call the value of a button, if the button is selected by the user.
    			if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Monday"){
    				//the movieclip will now be visible
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    				//we create a shared object called "Monday" using the above function
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Tuesday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Wednesday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Thursday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Friday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Saturday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;
    			}else if (_root.radioGroup.getValue()=="Sunday"){
    				_root.box._visible = true;

» 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.
