I am designing a very simple lotto game.

I have got to the point were I have two input boxes on a frame, one called Rand and the other called Guess. Rand contains a six digit random number, and guess contains the six digit inputted number guessed by the user.

What i want to do now is add a calculate button on this page. This means when the user clicks on the calculate button the frame displayed will jump to a prize frame, displaying what they have won. The frame displayed will deppend on how many numbers the user has guessed correct.

Can anyone help me with the code...

make a button on the original page. Also make sure you have variable names in both the input and dynamic text box. (different variable names)

on the button put this code:


on frame with frame label 'framewithprizes':

case: 1
prize="a new car";
case: 2
prize="an old car";

what you need to do is go through the text (as a string) one character at a time.

for example, your randomstring and userstring

so .
var ran_str:String = "000000";
var my_str:String = "120566";
counter = 0;
for (i=0; i<ran_str.length; i++) {
      if (my_str.charAt(i) == ran_str.charAt(i)) {

this way, if counter is equal to 6, then all 6 numbers are correct.
