Precise Cursor Angle Compass Flash 5
This lesson will demonstrate how to create a compass that always points in the direction of the mouse cursor. The script may be confusing if you don't know trigonometry but it's actually short and easy to apply. In fact I knew very little about trig before making the compass and would recommend that you spend some time researching the subject before attempting to create this project. The final result will be well worth it plus the knowledge you'll gain. Thanx to my friend Dave Dutt for telling m
Drawing Object in MX Flash MX
I can't help being impressed with FlashMX. I just wish I could learn all the new stuff as fast as possible. I came across the drawing object... and ended up with this tutorial. In the second part of this tutorial, I'll combine all this with the 'setInterval' method, and that's where the fun really start.
New methods: SetInterval, ClearInterval, clear (part2)

Using variables to control movie clips Flash 5
How do you make menu clips close when you open new ones? Or ever go to a site and press every button at once to see what would happen? Most times, every clip or menu will pop open and stay there. Yuk. The answer: don't use buttons to activate clips. Use them to change variables. Then make each and every clip do what it is supposed to, but only when the variable is the one the clip is looking for.
Pass Parameters into your Flash File at runtime Flash 5
One way you can get around not being able to pass a parameter in is to add a "querystring" to your swf src in the embed tag / param movie in your object tag and then look at the _url property for the movie and strip off the query part.
Smart Pad Flash 5
Flash lets the user draw pictures by scaling, and then attaching a line clip. (I have included a tutorial swf about the line engine because the concept is important and warrants a separate discussion. Flash MX obsoletes the technique, but it can't hurt to understand it.) A record function on the main timeline uses clipEvents in a Controller Clip to load the mouse's position into two arrays. Two more arrays are used to hold the distances between X and Y coordinates.
Creating dynamic charts from an external file Flash MX

Dynamic charts Flash MX
I created this tutorial because I wanted to use Flash MX to update a bar chart component in real time. I wanted to enter data and chart information and click a button to update the chart with the new values. It's probably a good idea to have a look at the sample file DynamicCharts.swf before you read this tutorial so you can see what I mean.

You could generate the XML file from an ASP, PHP or Cold Fusion page or straight from a database like Oracle or SQL Server.
