Hello,

I'm trying to do something that seems somewhat simple on the surface but I've yet to come up with a solution:

I have 3 radio buttons within an embedded swf with the following parameters:

button1
data: blue
groupName: Colors

button2
data: red
groupName: Colors

button3
data: yellow
groupName: Colors

When button2 is selected, I need the global variable, _global.theColor, set to "red".

Any direction is greatly appreciated.

thanks

i just recreated what i think you're trying to do.
first I made the buttons and named the three button1, button2, button3. Then on the FRAME i put this code.

_global.theColor = "black";
trace (_global.theColor);


Then I selected button1 and put this AS on it:

on(click){
      _global.theColor = "blue";
      trace (_global.theColor);
}



then on button2 this AS:

on(click){
      _global.theColor = "blue";
      trace (_global.theColor);
}


finally on button3 this AS:

on(click){
      _global.theColor = "blue";
      trace (_global.theColor);
}



Once you test the movie and click on one of the buttons you'll notice the output window will trace the _global.theColor var
