Learn Flash Lesson 5 : Upload the files to the server

A while back Kevin mentioned that we might have issues when trying to upload our surveys into our Interviewer Server. As promised we checked what we had done to see if anything strange would happen that we did not expect. This article describes the process that we used to get our Lesson 3 activated on a server.

Learn Flash Lesson 4 : Generic Flash Example

In this article we will take what we have learnt so far and explore one concept in making our flash object generic. The idea here will be to pass something into the flash object that set’s it up and then the flash object returns the selected result. This object could then be used in multiple positions throughout our survey to collect data.

Learn Flash Lesson 3 : Categorical Question

In the previous two articles we saw how to pass things from a flash object to data collection server and back again. In this article we will make a  categorical style question in flash and link it to our data collection survey. We will start with passing the data back to a text box and then  progress onto linking it to a categorical question.

Learn Flash Lesson 2 : Pass it back to Data Collection Server

In our previous article on flash we discovered how to create a flash object with two text boxes on it and a  button that could interact with an html page via JavaScript. In this article we will discover how to add all  this code into a html file that can be used with a Data Collection Server survey.

Learn Flash Lesson 1 : Lets Get Started

As promised here are our articles on integrating flash and data collection server. We started learning FLASH about 3 days ago and we now believe that we have found enough information to get something working. To get going with this , we downloaded the latest version of “Adobe Flash CS4 Professional” which gave us a 30 day trial. This has been more than enough time for us to get things working.

Killing two birds with one stone

Recently we were asked by our friends in India if we had any information around running Data Collection surveys for mobile devices. We don’t have anything , but we wonder if you do and would like to share it ? We have also created a survey that we would like you to try on your mobile device. If you don’t have a mobile device that can use the internet we would still like you to take this survey as it asks you amongst other things what you think about the IBM / SPSS acquisition. We will report our findings out at the end of the month.

Thanks once again to 2×4 consulting for letting us use their servers

Learn HTML : The Image/Template Cache

We will always want to add images into our surveys to perhaps show a company logo or some items of clothing that you are running the survey about. To get images into your surveys you could upload the images onto your company website and reference them from there, but that would require help from your web administrator. A better way to use images is to use the Image Cache that mrInterview provides.
