loadMovieNum(url, levelnum, "GET");
you can then append the variables/values to the url in a query string. parse the query string using the _url property in the receiving swf.
var s:String = this._url.split("?");
//tf is textfield on stage used to display the variables/values.
tf.text = "";
var varVal:Array = s.split("&");
tf.text += varVal[i].split("=")+" has value = "+varVal[i].split("=")+"\n";
wow, above and beyond the call of duty!
first off for how to get (no pun intended) the url string and then the extra mile with the splitting and unstringing the parms
I even got to create the passed variables from other variables sent to the 1st .swf from a calling .asp.
asp calls prog-1 with other data it gathers up
+ '<EMBED src="'+ prog1.swf + varString + '"'
prog1.swf calls prog2.swf
loadMovieNum ("prog2.swf?var1FromVarString=" + var1 + "?var2FromVarString=" + var2, 5, "GET");
there is also quite a bit of additional info after whatever vars I sent, it took a couple of trys to figure out I didn't need to put the 2nd & after my 2 vars, that gets put on automagically
many many thanks for your excellent helpl
