Tracking in Flash

I am starting to examine ways to track user interaction in Flash movies. So far the best solutions have been to call javascript functions embedded in html page and then when the user closes the flash window, it sends data to a script.I suppose the best thing would be to have the user clicks go straight into a database, but a database isn’t really an option. Perhaps if Flash had a good way of writing to a flat text file on a server–don’t know of any ways to do this. Perhaps there is one.

It was recommended to me that I should do an onunLoad action that will send data to a file once the move is unloaded. Will try this…

Meanwhile, there is probably some software that has been built to see how user track flash movies…

Here is a link that Phil Desenne sent me regarding tracking users in Flash: http://www.umbc.edu/interactive/flash/tu…

    I can not believe it was almost 10 years ago …
    Internet stepped away during this time period.
