I have a mxml component that I would like to initialize to a
different state depending on the URL of the containing page. I have
found a bunch of posts saying that I need to use Flash vars but how
do I access them? I have tried to line "var paramObj:Object =
LoaderInfo(this.root.loaderInfo).parameters;" in the
creationCompletion event in my startup form but it always throws a
null reference error.
