Flash5 communicating with program
Posted on 2001-06-30
I have Flash 5, and I have built some software in Borland's Delphi. I am using the ActiveX component to run my .swf file.
I want to be able to read a person's name from the database and give it to the .swf file and have it just repeat an effect on it, like it glowing in and out.
I can get the data fine. I have not done anything with Flash and would appreciate a tutorial on how to do this. I have read through the basic tutorials and help, so I am somewhat familiar with Flash.
In Delphi I have an event called "OnFSCommand". If I go into Flash it has an Action called FSCommand. I am guessing that I can use this somehow to pass it the name and use it.
Maybe it would be simpler if someone just made a simple flash file so that I can see how it was done, rather than trying to explain everything. Just tell me what parameter I need to send and I can do that part of it.
