    passing url parameters

    ec1y Level 1

      hi,

       

      i'm trying to get up to speed with flash cs4. the last time is used flash was in 2000 i think it was flash 4.

       

      my question is: i'm trying to pass minutes and seconds in a url: countdown.swf?m=5&s=13.

       

      the two variables would then act as the start for a countdown. so 5mins and 13secs in the example above. at the end of the countdown an offer expires.

       

      i'm thinking the min/sec variables would need to be combined into millseconds and then the total added to a countdown actionscript and then at the end the script would jump to a new frame saying offer expired?

       

      any help would be much appreciated.

       

      thanks!
