Central Scoreboard with Flash and ASP


Adding a few flash games to your site is always a great way to get visitors to stay on your site a bit longer and even keep them coming back. Itís well known that one of the best ways to keep visitors coming back is interactivity. So why not let your visitors battle it out between each other?

Central Scoreboard with Flash and ASP - The Flash file
(Page 4 of 4 )

This is the final part of the puzzle. The flash file has to send the playerís name and score off to the web server and fetch the highest scores back to populate the top scorers list. Open up Flash and save a new file as game.fla.

Normally of course there would be a game but since this is just an example we can skip that part. First create two scenes and then go to the first one. Here we will test out the adding scores script.

Create two fields where the user will enter data. Call the first one player and the second one score. Then create a button and prepare for some action script.

Use the GetURL to call up the page addscore.asp and select to send the variables by GET.

Now for the scoreboard; go to scene 2 and create six text fields so you can add in variables. Three of them will be for the names and the other three for the scores so make them an appropriate size. Call the fields as follows:

Player1
Player2
Player3
Score1
Score2
Score3

Now for some more ActionScript. Select the first frame (well the only frame) and add a LoadVariables command with the URL set to scoreboard.asp.

Congratulations! It is now complete. Go forth and spread scoreboard goodness throughout the world.
