Check Box - Remembering Selections When Returning

Former Member

I have a need to capture and display several attributes per item. I have setup a checkbox for each attribute and associated an on/off value for the checkbox. So far so good. I then created additional checkboxes with their own on/off values so that for Item 1 someone could check attributes A and B, for Item 2, attributes A, C and D and so on.

All of this works fine on the canvase and in the initial flash build. However, when I return to the workspace and then back to the Flash again evertying is unchecked as set initially. I didn't see any reference in the checkbox properties that indicated how to "remember" or keep the attribute selections for the user's return.

I tried the Scenario button and then didn't do anything. I saved the scenario and then attempted to reload it upon returning but there were no scenarios. I don't get that either.

What looks like a compelling concept is getting more and more frustating to use as a business tool. Can anyone shed some light here.

Thanks, David

The SWF file is essentially a streaming movie and therefore does not save or re-write itself. Therefore, launching the same SWF again will bring you back to its default state.

The local scenario button would be the appropriate method to re-visit a saved instance. How are you testing the local scenario button? It is important to know that you can't fully test it in Preview mode since Preview creates a temporary SWF each time. Since scenarios are tied to a specific SWF file, they won't appear next time you Preview. You'll have to export your SWF and then create your scenarios from that file.

I had been toggling back and for from design space to flash preview. Sounds like I will only see the local scenarios if I post the final flash to a web page. Which based on the input above leads to a follow-up question. As there may be a need to update a given flash model, what is the best way to set these models up so that user scenarios are not "wiped out" each time we post another update...?

Does this require programming a connnection to a SQL server on our DotNetNuke site or some other approach. I am still getting my bearings with this product as a business user with no formal IT development experience...

Thanks, David

Not sure about your second question, David, but for testing purposes you can view your model without having to upload to the web. If you export your model to a .swf (under the file menu) and save it anywhere on your local machine, you can then open it in any web browser and test out the local scenario feature.
