Workshop Chapter 16. Using the Local SharedObject to Remember User Settings

A common reaction to a long, drawn-out Flash introduction is to quickly click the Skip Intro button. Actually, the site www.skipintro.com exaggerates the issue. It doesn’t have to be this way, however. You can use the new local SharedObjects to store information about a user’s activities and preferences, and then retrieve that data later to adjust your Flash actions to that specific user.

The scenario for automatically skipping an intro animation might work like this: The first time the user sees the intro animation, you write a local SharedObject; then, for subsequent visits, you can check to see whether the local SharedObject is present and, if so, skip the intro for the user.
