I am trying to create a flash game that will interact with a
HTML page and ultimately, a database. I know flash doesn't directly
talk to a web page, so I figure the best way to do this is through
My questions are as follows:
1) Can another application, such as a basic HTML, XML, or JSP
page access a shared object in order to communicate some
information to a flash program?
2) If so, how would it do this?
3) Or, and I completely off-base and is there an easier way
to accomplish what I am trying to do without shared objects?
Thanks so much for any help or insight you can give
Flash does comunicate with the html page. There is fscommand
(not recommended), geturl, and others. Html can talk to flash thru
getobjectbyID, etc. As far as database goes, you would need to do
searches for that here. It can be done. I responded to this since
it was older and had no other responses, but I am limited on this
subject. Maybe someone smarter will see it this time...
You can communicate with HTML via ExternalInterface. Reading
from and to a database is simple enough with some PHP to moderate
between the two. I'm not sure I even understand what you are trying
to with SharedObjects, so I can't answer that. However, in light of
this new information, would you even use SharedObjects?
