I am trying to use a pre-made third party component (that I
have no source for) to read in and manipulate an XML file. I can
get it into the component window and drag it onto the stage and it
works fine. However, in order to dynamically change the location of
the xml file (which is absolutely crucial), I need to take in this
location as an argument to the overall swf and then push it to the
component when its created.
I tried to simply drag the component onto the stage and
change the component's xml_file parameter in actionscript in the
first frame, but that has no effect because the object has already
been created and by then the xml from the default xml parameter is
already read in. Since I have no control over the source code of
the component, I can't delay this read in. Thus, I must set this
parameter dynamically upon creation.
So I was trying things like attachMovie and loadClassObject
to push a parameter assignment in the fourth
argument(xml_file:"blah"), but I cannot get this to work either.
Anyone have a similar problem or know how to alleviate
