The Workshop consists of quiz questions and answers to help you solidify your understanding of the material covered. Try to answer the questions before checking the answers.


1:If you select the Publish command and nothing seems to happen, is there something wrong?
  1. Yes. Publish has a bug and doesn't actually work.

  2. Possibly. You need to be connected to the Internet for this command to work.

  3. No. Publish simply exports the files selected in Publish Settings. If you want to see the results, try Publish Preview (or find the exported files).

A1: C. Publish creates files but you won't see anything unless you first find the files created. Publish Preview creates files and immediately previews them in your browser.
2:Is it necessary to use the getURL Action only on buttons?
  1. Yes. Otherwise, you wouldn't know exactly when the user wanted to navigate to a new Web page.

  2. No. You could also put the Action on a keyframe or a clip instance (like any Action).

  3. No. You can put getURL on keyframes but not inside a clip instance.

A2: B. getURL is an Action and, therefore, you can put it anywhere Actions go (keyframes, clip instances, and button instances).
3:True or false: If you read all the material in this hour, you should now have a good grounding in HTML.
  1. True. It was concise, yet comprehensive.

  2. False. If you didn't know HTML before this hour, you probably still don't—but at least you know some of the potential.

  3. False. Only when you finish this book will you become an HTML pro.

A3: B. The idea wasn't to teach HTML but rather to point those with some HTML experience in the right direction and give others an idea of what's possible.
4:Is the getURL Action the only way to create a hyperlink?
  1. Yes. Except if you do it in HTML.

  2. No. There is an entire section of Actions in the Toolbox List to create hyperlinks.

  3. No. There are also some automatic ways to create hyperlinks with text.

A4: C. Static Text, through the Properties panel, has a field in which you can specify an URL to jump to. Also, Dynamic and Input Text can have “HTML” style, effectively letting you write HTML in Flash.
