How to create a quiz (for a basic beginner of beginners)

OK, Two questions really, I want to creat a quiz in my movie. I have two options.

1) I have the "Qmark Pro quiz" tool, now I don't really like it that much, but it will do, problem is that when I open it, it takes up the full screen. How can I link it into director (it being an external program) and confine it to a particular part of the stage, (basically creat a window on the stage to display qmark pro quiz (namely an external program)

Ok thats one option, second, is try to create a quiz myself, basically looking for a multiple choice, or one word text answer. I've had a look at a quiz that is given on director on-line, all it gives are a few lines of lingo, I haven't got a clue!

OK, ideally, I'd like to creat my own quiz, but if opening an window to display, QmarkPro is more do-able, I'll do that.
Yeah, nearly forgot, I have a javascript, multi choice quiz as well, could i import that into director and again set up a window on the stage to view it in?

Ok, any help will be greatly appreciated, as you can see, (from the above description) my technical skills are quite limited, so any help will have to be of a similar standard!!

regards
john

My first suggestion is to complete the tutorial that comes with Director.  It should help introduce you to everything and all the terms.  Then the code that you saw online might make more sense?  But puting together a quiz in director shouldn't be too difficult.  As for your other suggestions, you CAN launch stuff from director, but it just gets launched as a seperate application, so it wouldn't be constrained to a portion of the screen or even controlled by Director at all.

So I think sticking to writing the whole quiz in Director is the best bet.  The code should be very simple.  Just some events for button presses and if you want to save the results in the end a function to write them to a file.

I could help you write an initial quiz to help walk you through it, but unfortunately I don't have Director anymore since I changed jobs...

BTW, what version are you using?

Good luck!
