The main advantage of computers is the great variety of specific tasks it can do with prompt and fast response after 'telling' the machine something. This sort of interaction is inherit in most software that is available. The interaction mainly is combined with the handling and processing of an so called input by one or multiple users. In result the user(s) receive a so called output from the computer that more or less is a processed result of the given input.

If the output is combined with a direct visual feedback of the input and a simultaneous approving of validities, a interaction between man and machine can take place with e.g. always correct results out of many unpredictable combinations. eShop-systems have this sort of interaction by checking the availability e.g. of a book. Car manufacturers allow future costumers to proof check the possible combinations of accessories. For most of this interactions, a technically and ergonomically acceptable user-interface has to be created.

A front-end interface and partly processing software is the goal of this module. An online configurator has to be designed and realised. The aim is to let remote user interact with a given set of parameters. The user gets a graphical feedback of his/her manipulation. Finally, the user can store the parameters in order to postprocess it.

You receive a short introduction onto the programmed world of configurators. The field of activity is FLASH and it's programming language Action-Script. Introductions are given by Kai Rüdenauer.
