Introduction

It is important to note that this tutorial has two main parts. Firstly we will create a dynamic graph that refreshes with random numbers. Secondly we'll then look at a practical application of the dynamic graph by replacing the random numbers with values from a text file. So let's begin.

Dynamic Graph with Random Numbers

To construct a simple, self-updating graph that draws upon random results to graphically express data. Create a new movie and place four layers on the main timeline.
Layer 1 "Actions" - where all the scripting will go
Layer 2 "Refresh button" - a button to keep generating random results
Layer 3 "Bars" - this layer will have the instances of the "bar" movie clip
Layer 4 "Graph" - the actual graph background will be on this layer

» 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.
