Posted 21 April 2010 - 08:31 AM

cheers thanks alot - code attactched


//setting up of variables and setting their starting state
//also setting movie clip visabilty to false - not showing
var qno=0;var rnd1; var rnd2;
var right_answers=0;var wrong_answers=0;

//the code below shows enables both the order of the set questions and the order of the answer

function change_question()
function enable_disable(a){

next_b.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ButtonAction1);
function ButtonAction1(eventObject:MouseEvent) {qno++;change_question();} 

shade1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ButtonAction2);
shade2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ButtonAction3);
shade3.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ButtonAction4);

function ButtonAction2(eventObject:MouseEvent) {enable_disable(0);if(rnd1==1){tick.visible=true;tick.y=shade1.y}else{cross.visible=true;cross.y=shade1.y}}
function ButtonAction3(eventObject:MouseEvent) {enable_disable(0);if(rnd1==2){tick.visible=true;tick.y=shade2.y}else{cross.visible=true;cross.y=shade2.y}}

Hi catters929,

Are you asking the syntax for adding a single line comment using //

// like this

or a block comment using /* and */ like

/*setting up of variables and setting their starting state
also setting movie clip visibility to false - not showing*/

or are you asking for someone to comment that code and tell you how it works?

Let me rephrase your question so everyone can understand it:


I found this code and want to turn it in for my assignment but the teacher wants us to comment our code. Since I didn't write this I cannot comment it so can someone here do it for me so I don't get an F on the assignment please
