About this FreeBee
This FreeBee comes from Richard Kilmer and his development team at
Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. This is a great example of how
to create a crossword puzzle using ToolBook. There are two
examples: One with audio and the other without. It is only
available for ToolBook 2004 SP1. Many thanks to Richard and his
team for this generous contribution. As Richard puts it, "Because
we are a US government agency, we do not charge tax payers for our work
because you have already paid for it."
By the way, this book is also a great example of using a strict
naming convention and how that naming convention can then be used to do
some creative OpenScript programming.
How Does This FreeBee Work?
This is an example of how you can create a crossword puzzle using
OpenScript. Someone with OpenScript experience should be able to
follow this as an example and create a crossword puzzle with your own
words and clues. Because this crossword puzzle is built using
OpenScript, it will not work when exported. If someone gets
creative and converts Richard's native crossword puzzle to Action Script
for web deployment we would be happy to offer that version on this site
