[SIZE=1]**Basic Description of what I need done.
**1. I sell steel buildings. Small business, we are a dealer. Customers come onto our site and use the following to get a price. http://www.carports.com/cci/config60.html . I wanted a customer to select a state and automatically access pricing but in flash! **I’ve begun this process with the help from the last post I’d done. No need for help on doing the state selection from a map. THANKS TO glosrfc! =)
2. All of our pricing is set. To get a price we usually use a sheet that’s designed in a grid format. As shown in this example I scanned. http://www.mmartinezmasonary.com/40wide.pdf . People start with a base price for the size they need. Then they add accessories, for example sides closed on their structure, back walls, front walls, garages doors, and so on. I need to create an addition system in flash that will calculate these cost… VARIABLES?
Can someone show point me in the direction of a tutorial that will allow me to do the following. **A) I want to Allow someone to access a drop down menu, that will have standard sizes displayed. I can do drop down menus No Prob. B) each size displayed will be a set number (cost) so when a customer selects that size it’ll automatically display the total cost. how? C)once they select the size they now need options for accessories. More drop down menus. No problem. BUT HOW do I design in flash each option selected to automatically add to the totals together? and print/show a total on the screen. I looked into tutorials showing how to do a calculator in flash, done a few. I couldn’t apply them to what I need to tho though.
In my previous post I was told to looking into the Binary numbers. COO I’m familiar with how it works from my C programming curiosity days… however I’m not sure how to tie that into flash… im sure its over my head… maybe there’s a easier way to lay it out… if not thats fine…ill work with it…but I need some refrence point / tutorial to show how to tie those varible into a flash prgram.
3. Once again I’m new to this, and would like the easiest suggested method to go about doing so. I’m not afraid to study something so pleassssseee feel free to send a link or give me a topic I can look more into so that I may accomplish this. If someone can create a demo version…very simple that I can build off. I’d pay for that, paypal. TODAY or whenever. Quote me!
I draw steel buildings on a daily basis in flash… its soo easy with flashes line tool compared to any other programs I am familiar with. I want each option a customer selects to update a new image I draw in flash.
