Over 5 hours of High Definition videos on building a Flash Quiz Application.

In this 5+ hour series we walk through the process of building a series of quiz applications using Adobe Flash and ActionScript 3.

The tutorial was recorded using Adobe Flash CS 5.5. We begin the process by building a very simple quiz to establish the fundamental base knowledge needed to use ActionScript 3 and Adobe Flash to build a quiz application.

We then move on in the tutorial to make use of Arrays and components of ActionScript 3 to build a more complex quiz that allows the user to add questions to the arrays by adding additional items to the Array structure. Working through this tutorial you will become very familiar with the use of Arrays and how they are used in our programming languages.

We continue to build on our core knowledge by adding an external data set, built in XML, to increase the functionality of the quiz and make the addition of questions and answers to the quiz structure very simple by modifying the XML data file. We demonstrate how to increase the XML file to support unlimited questions and answers and include the formatting of the quiz title, questions and answers through the use of the XML data set.
