I am pretty new to ActionScript, and have done some coding in the past in .asp \ .aspx, but it is not my primary forte. I am working on a site that has a page for project photo galleries, using a lot of the examples from kirupa.com. I have a directory structure as follows:
root folder (containing projects.swf)
|-->project1 (containing image files, thumbnail images, and images.xml)
I am looking for advice on how to code projects.fla and resulting projects.swf so that when a button within this file is pressed, a variable containing the path to the .xml file and image files for a particular project is passed to the .swf file. All of the examples I have seen to this point have the .xml file and the image files in the same directory as the .swf. Or other suggestions? I am working with AS 2.0, using Flash MX 2004. Thanks in advance for any \ all advice you can pass along.
