Variables in Object Parameter

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 3581553 posted 8:56 pm on Feb 21, 2008 (gmt 0)

I trying to make my flash file dynamic by introducing variables through the query string.

ie: file.swf?field1=alpha&field2=beta

Working with PHP I know all about working with query strings, and how to send that data.

My question is, how can I recieve this data in my flash file? I'm specifically interested in dynamically changing text in an object's parameter window. Is this possible?

Try to look at this [kb.adobe.com...]

FlashVars is Flash answer to Query String. It's a way to pass data or variables from html to a Flash movie. The general idea of FlashVars is very similar to a Query String. Variables passed via FlashVars will go into the _root level of the Flash movie.

Google for SWF Object, this makes easy work of importing Flash Variables without long ugly query strings - and gets rid of the gray bounding box in IE as well.
