Part 2 - Setting up individual E-cards.
The download for this tutorial comes with 4 fla files for e-cards that can be used. You can use just about any e-card you can think of though as long as a few minor changes are made to the card.
All you have to do is create two dynamic text box area's and give them the names of 'Greeting' and 'IntroMessage' - this is shown to the right. You can use html in these as long as in the input text area's you used html tags, such as the <b> tag or <a href..> tag. Then that html will be displayed in this area.
The only other part that you have to add to your e-card is the following line of actionscript in the first frame.
loadVariablesNum ("http://www.yourSite.com/E-Cards/dBText/"+EcardText+".txt", 0);
This part will be further explained later on. This will load the variables from a text file located on your server containing information that a the user entered. The 'EcardText' variable is sent to the movie when the user goes to the link that is sent to him through email. Again this will be better explained later on.
