Hello brains,

Here is a hard question for a simple response. I would like to write javascripts that control flash movies (update variables, Telltarget commands)... I can write javascripts that do 'Gotoframe', but i just don't know how to spell to have a variable in my Flash object updated.

Any Idea someone ?

Two things you need to make sure you're doing:

1) Create a new FlashApi() object - and make sure you include FlashApi.class and all its subclasses.

2) To change a variable's value, just use

MyFlashObject.SetVariable("varName", "value");

I hope this helps you in some way or another!
