This is to create a flash driven navigation menu. What I have
is a coldfusion page that serves a simple XML formatted page. There
are 3 XML components, linkLabel, linkURL and linkType. The label
just passes text, the type is just a number 0-9 that is used to
determine the style of the button. The linkURL that is passed from
coldfusion comes across encoded for XML, so what I end up with is
url's that replace "&" with ";amp;".
So my question is this, is there an easy way in the
actionscript to replace the ";amp;" with "&"? Other than that
little problem, the rest of the script runs just fine, I just can't
seem to find the syntax I'm looking for to replace items in a
string. I saw the code for replacesel() but this doesn't seem to do
it, unless i'm writing it wrong.
nevermind, i went a different route. I also needed to track
the number of click throughs to each link, so rather than send the
entire link to flash, I just send the data table ID for that link
and build a url in flash...
