Welcome to my EST 100 Flash page. I used Flash Professional CC 2015 (Actionscript 3.0) to design and create my own simple calculator. This page shows the basic understanding of the Adobe Flash tools and Flash scripting. This was the most difficult assignment because I ran into many scripting errors while creating the calculator. I learned that it is extremely important to pay attention to details and to be consistent with codes and names of text and buttons in order to smoothly perform the operation, as the program is case sensitive. Even a single letter mistake can lead to errors in the system.
For this project, I decided to create a Flash form using scripting. I chose to create a mathematics calculator instead of a frame by frame animation because I found this part of the project to be more interesting and useful in everyday life. My mathematics calculator performs simple operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The user can provide any number/input, (which will be manipulated as a calculation), thereby receiving an answer/output. My calculator, which is displayed on the right, is extremely simple, straightforward and easy to use.
