View Full Version : Online Drawing (Paint Application)

02-15-2008, 06:00 PM
Hi again, i have been requested to make a web page for a school and they want a paint like application embedded in the site.
There would be a button saying something like ' Create Your Own Drawing ' they then click on this to open another web page which would have a paint like application on it. From there they need to be able to save the drawing to the site or to their desktop.
I know this can be done as i have seen it on places like bebo and myspace, but dont know the HTML for it.
Has anyone come across this before by any chance?
Many Thanks

goss.. HTML cannot do this. You're looking at quite an advanced app.. do you have any experience in Java/Flash or other languages?

No, unfortunately. I do some flash, but this requires a skill level I'm miles away from. You might look into using a site like http://www.sitepoint.com/marketplace/, but make sure you have a well defined scope before using it.

ok thanks, i guess im going to learn how to use flash then. what flash software would u recommend that u think would be up to the job?

Macromedia Flash Pro, the learning curve is going to be somewhat large though, you're going to get into *alot* of actionscripting. Anyone else have some input on this?

Flash is upto the job but the question is are you?

This is programming mind. Not to be taken with a pinch of salt and unless you have a programming language under your belt already then its going to be tricky. You dont learn a programming language over night nor will flash be bundled with a paint app template

an example of what you need to understand...

// class

definition House = function(siding){
this.floors = 4;
if (siding != undefined){
this.siding = siding;
this.siding = "Red";
this.outputSiding = function(){

// create an instance of the House class to have blue siding
myHouse = new House("Blue");
// create an instance of the House class to have red siding
myHouse = new House();

Try this.


I've been working in flash for 4 years and would have a really tough time trying to make one of these. Good luck to you.

Hope this helps.

thanks If you don't even know what Macromedia Flash is as far as software goes, you don't stand a chance in making this. You need some heavy experience under your belt in order to develop this app :)
