I am trying to develop a simple polling station for an event. The polling station will be driven by a P.C with a touchscreen controller and the output will display a simple bar chart that will update in real-time. I believe this should be quite easy in flash, but I could just do with some pointers.
I have created an rough interface like the attached. There will be 5 buttons for voters to choose. Each voter can only select one button. When they make their selection I need three things to happen :
1) I need the values to be shown as a percentage of the total number of votes. (i.e: if only 2 people vote each would display 50%. If 4 voted it would calculate the total of each to be 25%)
2) I need the values to create a simple bar chart of the figures.
3) Add their vote to the total number of votes.
Any pointers would really help as I am primarily a designer with very basic flash or programming knowledge.
