Flash Tools for Developers: Truth Tables and Logic - Getting the Files

Doug Ensley and Barbara Kaskosz

Download the 5-pagetruth_tables_guide.pdf for detailed instructions for customizing the Function Grapher.

Download the file and unzip it in to your computer. You will see the truth_table_tutorial folder which contains all the files related to this article:

  • The folder edu contains all the necessary ActionScript classes in a nested sequence of folders.Note that for Flash to be able to find the classes, the folder edu must reside in the same folder as the template you are working on.
  • The two source files for the templates that will be discussed are tt3vars.fla and tt3xml.fla. In addition, the file tt3xml.fla is provided as a two-variable implementation of the second template file.
  • The files tt3vars.html, tt3xml.html and tt2xml.html (along with the corresponding swf files) allow you to try out the truth table activities on which this guide is based.
  • The files tt3problems.xml and tt2problems.xml provide data for the XML based problems. These files can be viewed and edited using any text editor.

Working right from the folder truth_table_tutorial, you can open one of the three .fla files in Flash 8 Professional and begin customizing the application to your liking. If you prefer a clean working environment, create a new folder but be sure to include the edu folder alongside your programs that are to use these classes.
