Crossword puzzle
making it all ...

 10:41 am on Mar 23, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi guys,

I've done many projects with flash and was asked to make a crossword puzzle. It's quite easy to make a predefined, static one, but how would one go about making a complex system where you could insert let's say 50 words with appropriate descriptions and have it all align itself?
Sounds like a challenge indeed.
Which techniques would you use to accomplish these? PHP?
Let's see what you have to say : )

Search for: create crossword puzzle script

It's been done many times in many languages..

Hi lexipixel, I gave it go and tried searching as you said. But I did not stumble upon anything I might use.
There are some java examples out there and some stand alone software solutions, but I'm trying to make it in flash.
Any other recommendations ?

The programmatical and algorithmic approach is the same regardless of the language - what will differ is the semantics of the language, in this case actionscript, and how you render the visuals.

All in all the hard part will be the programmatical side of things.

Good luck!

You might also try:


and search for: actionscript crossword

If nothing else, you might find some usable snips...
