Post 3+ Months Ago

i have a simple flash website and i would consider myself a novice at it. My friend whom is extremely smart has a little flash news ticker to show updates and stuff to his website. It is not updated through flash though he says that he has a page on his website with forms to enter the info into and forms to enter the picture url into. I know i am extremely newbie at flash but i was wondering how he did this because i really want to let my friend put his news updates into the site without having to go into the flash and change it there. So if you think this is to tough a project for someone like me tell me please lol. But if not then can you provide me with some sort of tutorial anything will help.

If you are going to use his news ticker, then better ask him how he did it.

basic steps would be:
1. creating the ticker, first with hardcoded values, to make sure it works.
2. learn to read text files using LoadVars class (read flash help) or xml files using XML object (search for 'actionscript XML parsing tutorials' on google or read the flash help for XML class)

After you're done with this come back and ask about images as well.

yes sure, read the help about the
