    Am currently completing my Flash based dissertation in Spain . However, the uni has no english Flash books available so i have learn´t everything from the Flash help pages, which as you are probably aware are only very basic.

    The Problem

    I have to have on screen flashing Black and White boxes (which are to be viewed by a scanner). If a 1 is entered the black box flashes, 0 the white.

    I have managed to do this (by using the gotoAndPlay function) but i would like to use the _visible command (i.e have the boxes always there - just 'switch' them on or off) However all attempts have ended in failure. Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Also, and more importantly, the boxes have to flash once with every monitor screen refresh. Is there anyway of knowing when the screen is going to be refreshed in Flash??

    Any help would be appreciated
