Click on the appropriate dot and then submit your selection by clicking the Submit/Result key
There are several methods of creating survey tools for the web. In this particular case, clicking the Submit/Results button sends your selection to an Active Server Page (ASP), located on the MINDdrops.com server, which updates the survey data by reading and writing to a text file. The updated data is then sent back to the Flash movie and the updated survey results are displayed. In this case the text file serves as a very simple, dynamic database.
A complete tutorial describing the Flash MX program, the ASP program, and the text file used in this Learning Object can be found in Flash MX and ASP Communication.
