Back to our Flash game

The action script which we created earlier all sat on the main timeline and sent only variables which existed on the main timeline. Therefore, it stands to reason, that the variables which the php script returns will also exist on the main timeline.

Next, create a new labelled frame in your Flash movie call "highScores". In that frame create two dynamic text fields on your stage and name them "players" and "scores". On both text fields, set HTML to on, select multiline no wrap and pick a web font like verdana and a sensible text size (12). When your Flash game receives the resulting values of the players and scores variables sent from the php script it will automatically put those variables into the two dynamic text fields as their names are equal. I have included an example flash movie with these high scores text fields. It's also a good idea to create a scroll bar for these text fields so that the viewer can scroll through the scores when they get longer than the text fields themselves.

» 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.
