The pictures below describe the steps in creating a quiz with a SWF sound file attached to a question.
The complete Flash example files are posted here for downloading. Right click each file and save it to your computer. You must have the Flash program (not viewer) to view the .FLA Flash file.
To create a new Flash file, click on File, New and select Flash Document. There will be a layer next to the timeline.
Name the layer 'Sound'.
Select File, Import and Import to Library. Select all the files needed for use in the question.
On the main timeline, drag the 'Play' button to the Stage. Under Properties, select 'Button' to create a button. In the Library, right click the 'Play' button and select 'Linkage'. Select 'Export for ActionScript' and 'Export in the First Frame'. Follow the same procedure for creating a 'Stop' button.
On the main Stage, double click the 'Play' button. If you wish to change the colors or other visual effects on the button, click on the color under each button state (Up, Down, Over, Hit). If there are no 'dots' (keyframes) displayed under the button states, click the F6 key on the keyboard to place a keyframe in each button state.
