Get flash to push data to javascript

 12:18 pm on Jun 24, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hi, I'm a bit of a Flash noob.

I have a flash movie with several buttons. When a button is pressed I want it to send the button ID to a javascript function (outside the flash file).

Any ideas how to do this?

Check the help files for getURL() and "external data," there are many methods for this.

Thanks for the reply rocknbil.

For anyone else who stumbles on this ticket:

getURL() to execute a javascript function will work - it's no longer officially supported though because these days everything is done through ExternalInterface. So you'd do:


where "changeMyDropDownMenu" is the function and "scotland" is the argument.

That said, getURL should still work, you can do
