Using 1 shared object to update seperate swfs dynamicaly
Posted on 2004-10-10
What I am trying to do is make a music player for a website that runs 'constantly' not pausing, stopping or getting reset when a user changes page in the site.
To achive this I have created two flash movies a control swf with play stop etc. and a player swf which receives instructions from the control and loads in the sound file and changes volume.
To avoid inturruption in the playing music when the user changes page I have put the control swf in a frameset with the rest of the page content and the player swf in a seperate frame.
The problem im having is that the two are not comunicating with eachother 'dynamically' i.e as soon as an instruction is sent. They only update when the page is refreshed. To test this i have used a slider in one movie and a dynamic txtbox in the other movie both set the same shared object. When the slider is moved in theory it should also change the txtbox in the other movie
I think the problem may be with the use of the flush fuction?
Can anyone shed any light on how to use this?
