Flash Tutorial - Create an Application
The application that you'll create in this lesson lets users view the cost of selecting multiple products. A Calculate button then adds the total cost.
First, you'll open the start file for the lesson and set up your workspace to use an optimal layout for taking lessons.
- To open your start file, in Flash select File > Open and navigate to the file:
- In Windows, browse to
boot drive\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 8\Samples and Tutorials\Tutorial Assets\Basic Tasks\ Create an Application and double-click calculator_start.fla.
- On the Macintosh, browse to
Macintosh HD/Applications/Macromedia Flash 8/Samples and Tutorials/Tutorial Assets/Basic Tasks/Create an Application and double-click calculator_start.fla.
Note: The Create an Application folder contains completed versions of the tutorial FLA files for your reference.
- Select File > Save As and save the document with a new name, in the same folder, to preserve the original start file.
Note:As you complete this lesson, remember to save your work frequently.
- Select Window > Workspace Layout > Default to set up your workspace for taking lessons. The form already includes an input text field in the QTY column and a dynamic text field in the Price column. You'll copy the text fields for the Shocks and Cover rows.
