This job requires expertise in Flash and XML. Also good and frequent communication and willingness to show wok in progress.
This is a Flash movie that will use data posted by the referrer (another Flash movie) to select from a set of internal templates (in the Flash movie) and external XML-based text and external graphics, assemble the template (flow the selected text and graphics into the selected template), and print.
* Final specs, functionality, and sample graphics and content will be provided when the job is awarded.
=== END PRODUCT AND SPECS ===
The end product is native Flash file(s) and XML file(s).
The XML file(s) need to have all XML tags and parameters set up using enough sample content to test (you do not need to put in all of the final content). The XML should be commented to explain all tags and parameters and their connection to Flash variables and functions.
The Flash file(s) need to be version CS3 or older, using ActionScript 3 or older. The ActionScript should be commented extensively.
When the job is started, I will provide you with a Flash file that already has the template pages in it. Each template page will contain a few static graphics and delineated space for pulled-in text and graphics to be placed.
=== FUNCTIONALITY ===
Receive data from the referring Flash file. Data is a single array.
Calculate about 20 new variables using the array data. The calculations need to be extremely well commented (they will be revised by others after you are done with them).
Select a template to use based on the values of the calculated variables.
Fill the selected template with text from the XML file(s) and graphics from a directory. Select content based on the values of the calculated variables.
Show the assembled page on screen with print and cancel buttons.
Print through the local print dialog at printer resolution (not screen resolution).
Pass some result variables back to the referring movie and close.
=== GENERAL REQUIREMENTS ===
This MUST be very well documented. Build in time to do that.
When I open the Flash file(s) on my computer which has a default Flash CS3 install, the file should be fully editable with what I’ve got. In other words, you can not use third-party apps or classes that must be installed for me to revise the document. If you must use something beyond default Flash tools, they need to be open source and you need to provide them -- AND YOU NEED TO EXPLAIN THEM IN YOUR BID or else I’ll assume you’re using none.
If you re-use code, make sure it is yours or open-source; that it is clean and appropriate for this job; with variable names, function names, and documentation specific to this job; and there no extra unused code cluttering things up.
