yeah, but the crappy MM quiz template does not pull in external files like yours and texbala's file!

so Texbala is going strong on the interviews. Me, well, I had one real interview on last Monday in Boston. Company makes training materials for pharmaceutical companies (like Pfizer and their 12,000 sales reps!). They have so much work that they want to add 2 more flashers to their group of 8 pure flash people!

but since I flew up there with 2 day notice ticket ($$$), I networked with two other companies.

so good luck to all out there and the rest of us better get jobs before the new CyanBlue web site goes live!!!

hey guys - I got an answer from Macromedia about loading questions in MX components. You'll like the load of info it gives:

Basically the answer to my question which was: Can I load questions dynamically from a database? was:

"yes, you can do it - just link your database to the flash movie. and set it so it can load questions and send answers."

These are not the exact words because, Oops, I already deleted their email.

No how to,
No example
No tutorial.

Thanks MM!

No wonder we spend hours making our own quizzes and think about making templates and components. If I come up with something as good as CYan Blue, I'll post it. But I doubt it. He is the genius, no me!

Well... Macromedia is notorious for their documentation... I'm just glad that you were able to get some answer from them...

Nah... That's not actually true... Guys like JD works as much as he could to help other people on other mailing lists and forums... But the fact that MM doesn't provide much information on how to do things and even the basic documentation is not tolerable... But then, what can we do???

Thanks, I'll take that as a complement... But there are big guys out there and I am just small one messing with your mind...

Isn't it great?

Maybe we'll be lucky and somebody will know how to do it and share with us!

Reminds me of another component: the calendar! That was a pain too!

They are just plain too heavy no matter how good/bad they are...

Are you saying 'simple'??? I'll say no...

I have used this one a couple of times...
Not so great since it is based on the MM's calendar, but I like this one... It depends on what you are trying to do though...

One thing though... If the piano coach can take a good care of the text file, that's fine, but I'll say that she'll call you the next day saying that the calendar is not working anymore because she did touch something... Don't you think???
