If you are seeing this error after typing an equation in, it most likely means you are trying to use/override a variable that is in use by the system or a program that is currently running. If this is the case, your best bet is to use a different variable.

Programming Issue : "Error : Variable or Flash application is locked, protected or archived"

Apparently the variable "a" is archived or locked. Press 2ND VAR-LINK (the subtract key). Find the line containing "a". If there's a little x-like thing to the left then its archived. Press F1 9 to unarchive it. If there's a little padlock to the left then its locked. Press F1 7 to unlock it.

On my TI-83+ when trying to unarchive a app I get ERR: VARIABLE. I have deleted the app but when I put it back on my calculator it was archived again and I got the same message.

Applications on the TI-83+ cannot be unarchived. Flash applications on the TI calculators need to stay archived until they are run; it is the way the calculator functions. The application should run fine the way it is. Programs, on the other hand, can only be run while unarchived and in the memory. Are you sure you don't mean to unarchive a program instead of a flash application?

New terminal. Error message download needed no go variable

did you download the software from the website using a flash drive? I would give that a try. The drivers are located here... The error you are receiving indicates that the application is not loaded onto the system. Hope this helps.

Variable of falsh application is locked, protected, or archived

One variable you created has the same name as a system variable, or a flash application variable. Variables such as theses are protected: you cannot modify them.
Use Var-Link to check the names of variables you want to create: If the name you want to use is already assigned to an App, you cannot use it.
Hope it helps.

Why does my ti89 when opening an APP dumps the programs in main

The home directory is where it does its cooking. If you want to work in some other directories go to that directory and run your application. But if you do so the application may look for a routine, a variable at the wrong place, and will not find it.

To avoid this problem, in Dos based computers you had a PATH variable, that contains all the possible paths to directories where a program might look for a necessary variable.

Hope it clarifies things.

I keep getting variable or flash application in use on my TI-89 Titanium whever I try to launch any application, what should i do?

I think you have a conflict with another program in the main folder that happens to be a program that may be used by that APP. You may go to main folder and delete or unarchive or unlock programs or varibles that may be used by the APP's. I would go ahead and delete it, but, you can copy it somewhere else. Then again it may because the program/varible is in a folder other than main that is used by APP's. Try and find it and delete it.

Text box restriction

I hope this helps and thanks for rating my effort...any other questions...shoot em to me....The Fang.

Restricting character input You can use the SetInputTextType command to restrict the characters that the user can enter in the text input dialog box. For example, suppose an application contains an input text field for users to provide a numeric value, such as their age, and that the input text field has the variable name ageVar. To ensure that the user enters only numeric values in the text input dialog box, you could add the following code to your application:
fscommand2("SetInputTextType", "ageVar", "Numeric");
When users open the input text dialog box, they can enter only numeric values in the text fields.
For more information, see SetInputTextType in the fscommand2 function entry in the Flash Lite 2.x ActionScript Language Reference.

How to define variables in flash action script for every movie that i want

Using variables in a project

When you build animations or applications with Flash, there are very few situations in which you don't need to use any kind of variable in your project. For example, if you build a login system, you might need variables to determine whether the user name and password are valid, or whether they are filled in at all.

You can find more information on loading variables (such as name/value pairs) in Working with External Data.

In the following example, you use variables to store the path of an image you are loading with the Loader class, a variable for the instance of the Loader class, and a couple of functions that are called depending on whether the file is successfully loaded or not.
To use variables in a project:

1. Create a new Flash document, and save it as imgloader.fla.
2. Select Frame 1 of the Timeline, and add the following ActionScript to the Actions panel:

/* Specify default image in case there wasn't a value passed using FlashVars. */
var imgUrl:String = "";
if (_level0.imgURL != undefined) {
// If image was specified, overwrite default value.
imgUrl = _level0.imgURL;
