Archive for April, 2002

It was brought to my attention today April 29th, that due to a production problem, many files neccessary for the chapter I authored, Chapter 14: Dynamic Database User Poll, were inadvertantly omitted from the accompanying CD. Several incorrect and extraneous files were also accidentally included on the CD. This apparently happened during the CD mastering process. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. This archive contains all the files you will need to complete the chapter and a readme listing the files and their purpose.

Comments Off on Flash MX Magic Chapter 14 Errata – Important Files Missing from CD

First up, the User Forum is now accessible at its own URL: This should allow you to get in and out quicker. Second: Flash MX Magic is now shipping! I authored Chapter 14: Dynamic Database User Poll – which covers use of the new Loadvars object available in Flash MX and several other techniques for integrating PHP and MySQL into Flash MX to provide a dynamic element to your Flash work. A working example of the finished project can be found here. I’m working on some additional resources, info, and updates and enhancements for the chapter that will be posted soon. Please post in the user forum if you have questions, or need help with the chapter. Last item: In the next few days expect the site to go all Flash MX, requiring the Flash 6 player for all content. This is necessary for some new things I’ll be adding to the site..stay tuned!
