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

I have a global variable entitled _global.colors that has a value of "red". When this embedded .swf is called, I would like button2 to be shown as checked.

thanks

in the code that loads the respective swf files simply set the selected value of the radio button.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback.
I'm not quite sure how to do that. Here is the code in the actions layer:

======

flashistListener = new Object();
flashistListener.click = function (evt){
        theVerdict.text = evt.target.selection.data
}
ColorOption.addEventListener("click", flashistListener);


stop();

====
I tried:

ColorOption.data = "red";

But button 2 did not display as checked.

Any further assistance is greatly appreciated.

I'm a tad confused, in your first post you said your group name was Colors - why's your event listener ColorOption?

Whichever groupname you choose to use, you need to say groupName.selectedData = "red" - or whatever value.

That was a typo on my part. Your solution did the trick.

Thanks!
