    Calendar

    I'm trying to make a calendar where it stores events for certain days [finished] and then (from a different swf) add events or take them away. What would I need for this? For an example. A school calendar. It shows events of what's happening throughout the year. A teacher adds events to it (not by editing the file that stores it). Help would be really nice.

    well first off..your going to need somethign that can help the two .swf's (the calander and the admin.swf) "talk" to each other... Usually the "admin".swf will use PHP (or whatever) to save the content to a DB, XML or a text file.... then the calander will update from this.

    They don't need to talk to echother. The calendar only needs to read the xml file and the admin.swf changes the xml file.

    which is exactly what I just wrote.... you need your 3rd party (whatever) to save the XML file...FLASH can NOT save the XML file itself.

    If they dont need to talk to each other...then whats your problem?

    Your basically talking about a simple CMS using XML...
