Frame 2 IV

You will find the fifth frame is the one titled 'convert_to_lowercase'. Once again, it helps to name things that make sense. There are a number of tutorials on the net that deal with this topic to varying degrees of competency so I will not cover them here. Just accept that it works -- it does. : )

Comment: initialize counters

Set Variable: "m" = 0
Set Variable: "n" = 0
Set Variable: "p" = 0
We need three counters. Remember I mentioned there were three loops going on: One to keep detecting new user input (this is done via a 'Frame' go to action. Another loop to count through the list of links. And another to step through the characters in each link. The last variable you see here 'p' is used as a counter to count how many items match our user's input.

Comment: start counting (up to total links)

Loop While (n
'n' is our counter to keep track of which
link we are on. We only cycle through 'n' one time. In other words, n counts
from 1 up to the total amount of links in the list, then we're done.

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
