Passwords in Flash 5


Part Three, Actionscript.


Ok so now you have your button and text fields. Now you just need to make them work.
So on the button, Right click on it and click the Actions. Then insert the following code, Just copy paste.

on (release, keyPress "") {
if (_root.inputPass=="XboX") {
getURL ("http://www.flashkit.com");
_root.display = "Right";
_root.inputPass = " ";
} else {
display = "Wrong";
}
}

Ok so now a line by line explaination.
Ok so the first tells flash, that when the mouse is Released, Or the button Enter is pressed, it does the following code.
The second line determines whether the user input the correct password.
_root.inputPass Just tells flash exactly what it is checking.
_root just tells flash where that text box is located.
In this case, The box, inputPass MUST equal XboX.
Remember! Flash is CaSe Sensitive. So the capital X's matter.

So IF the password in the box inputPass was equal to XboX, then the following code is run, or executed.
The next line tells flash to run a website, getURL is the command to open a website.
In another case you could put like gotoAndPlay(5);
This would tell flash to run the rest of the movie.
This line sets the bottom display box to say Right, Which tells you, that you got it right.
Then the next line resets the box that they wrote in. It sets it to nothing, to blank.
The next line tells flash that IF the password happened not to be XboX then it would execute the following code. Which happens to be display = "Wrong";
This means that the box would tell you that you got it Wrong.

Basically that is it. That is the simplest way I could think of to make a password script for flash. I hope this tutorial was of help to you. If you have any questions regarding this or any other subject I will try my best to help. Feel free to email me. Thanks for reading, And thank FlashKit for hosing their great site.

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.
