My party goers, click here to see a list of couples who will be playing for title of “Best Couple.” //dusers.drexel.edu/~asian/bd2003/gui.swf
This is version 1 of my party-competition interface. I tested the login on my laptop and it worked fine, but I believe the dusers server uses a older version of PHP, so my scripts may need to be modified.
Topic: My Party Competition Interface
What did you use to build the interface? How does it work?
Well, you should all have realized that the graphical user interface (GUI) is presented in Flash SWF format. A discussion on how flash works is beyond the scope of this lesson; suffice it to say that it is a wonderful medium for web-based multimedia.
Each person, along with their email address, full name, and password is stored in a database table called ‘People’. Each of these people has a unique numerical identifier.
Each team, along with the numerical identifier corresponding to the captain of the team and his/her partner, their team name, and score, is stored in a database table called ‘Teams’. Each of these teams has a unique numerical indentifier.
Using PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP), the database is queried, and class objects corresponding to each Person and each Team are created.
Flash loads this dynamically generated XML and generates its own internal objects representing each person and each team.
A movieclip instance for each person is created within Flash, as well as for each team, and the results are displayed as what you see.
