1.3. Building a Multiple-Choice Quiz

Now that we've explored the basic principles of ActionScript, let's apply those principles in the context of a real Flash movie. We'll start our applied study of Flash programming by creating a multiple-choice quiz, using very simple programming techniques, most of which you've already learned. We'll revisit our quiz in later chapters to see how it can be improved after learning more advanced programming concepts. We'll eventually make the code more elegant so that it's easier to extend and maintain, and we'll add more features to our quiz so that it can easily handle any number of questions.

The finished .fla file for this quiz can be found in the online Code Depot, cited in the Preface. This is a lesson in Flash programming, not Flash production. I assume that you are already comfortable creating and using buttons, layers, frames, keyframes, and the Text tool. If not, consult the Flash Help documentation. The quiz shows a real-world application of the following aspects of ActionScript programming:
