I wasn't sure how to title this, haha, but here is the
problem I am having with Flash.
So I have a SWF banner, created in flash cs3 using AS2. The
basic idea of this is to have it be a clickable banner which will
send the user to a URL when they click on it. I have created it so
that you need to pass in the parameter of "clickURL=<url goes
here>" to give it the URL to send the user to.
Now, I've "hooked it up" for work with a 302 redirect. What I
mean by this, is on the page I place the the object/embed tags to
place the SWF, only the URL for the swf is
"banner_redirect.php?param=junk&url=3", where the number for
the URL will determine which value will be used for <url goes
This works just fine in firefox, but when I use it in
internet explorer (6, 7, or 8) the url it gets sent to is undefined
(as shown by the text box value - it's as though there was no value
passed into for clickURL). I have added a simple text box to the
SWF to display what the value for clickURL is, and in IE the value
is "undefined", but in FF the value is what ever value it is
assigned to by the banner_redirect.php.
I have spent 2 days on this, and the only thing I can see is
that IE is not handling the 302 redirect the same way FF is (and/or
is dropping off the ?clickURL parameter when sending back the
address for the SWF in the redirect).
anyone have any insight into this??? thanks in advance!!!
