    Re: boolean help

    Hi,

    I'm not really sure how you would accomplish this, one method would be to have a "Table of Contents" page that would display 52 different weeks. Then simply allow the user to jump to a specific week.

    Another, but more expensive, method would be to have one page that has one button that simply opens the same text file, and another button that would launch an executable created by TrueUpdate.

    What the executable would do is check to see if there is a newer "Quiz" file available, and if there was it would download it over last weeks file. After the download has completed the other button would now open the “new” text file. In order to make this work you would simply have to upload a new Quiz file each week.

    You can download an evaluation copy of TrueUpdate here: http://www.indigorose.com/files.html

    mark.

    Well, I can think of one way you can do this without waiting for AMS4. Each time they click on a link, it will write a registry entry. When the AMS menu opens, it will check to see which registry entries are there, and hide/show the next available link depending upon the registry entries provided. The only drawback I can see to this is that if they accidentally click on the next button too soon and don't print it out, they're out of luck. But seeing as how AMS doesn't support date-timed events, this would be the only solution to your problem that I can see. If anyone else has a better idea, let him know. Good luck.

    boolean help

    Hi,

    I am trying to master AMS, its great but heres what I need to do, I am producing a quiz CD and what I need to happen is this...
    The customer needs to click a button for his next weeks questions a TXT file will then open and he can print it, then next week he clicks the same button but AMS will choose a brand new set of questions to open and print, this needs to work for 52 weeks.

    I hope this can be cured as I have puzzeled for days over it and my only anser is an AMS page with 52 seperate buttons which they click but this looks very confusing (probably like this question !)

    Many thanks
Working...
