I need to use variables passed in the query string of the page in my flash movie but am having a tough time implementing the code properly. Is there no actionscript that allows you to have access to the query string directly?
It seems that you need to hard code values into the query string in most of the examples I have seen. For instance they say you should do this:
WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="300" id="movie">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="movie.swf?myvar=var
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>
quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="250" HEIGHT="250" NAME="flaMovie1"
But this seems like it is hardcoding what the query string values are. So if you visit the webpage with this swf embedded in it with this value:
Than the movie wouldnt pick up the different value of myvar. Or maybe I am missing something. It also doesnt help that any time I change the movie and embed values in my object tab (ie from movie.swf to movie.swf?myvar=$value1) I get a security exception with flash player and it wont let me call the webservice from a different domain...
