    Main app and sub SWF apps

    rckehoe Level 1

      Is there any way to send variables between SWF apps?

      Let me explain...

       

      I have an application that has a list box of items that you can select. When you select one of these items from the list box, it will load a different SWF file. I want to be able to pass variables to this remote SWF file, this way the SWF file can use these variables....

       

      Is that possible?

          Yes, I'm pretty sure you can pass messages back and forth between two separate applications, but the way I ususally do this is to have a main application that loads and unloads modules. In the main swf, the one defined as the application I have global variables that can be accessed from any of the modules. so, to retreive the value your syntax would be:

           

          var localvar:String=Application.application.globalVar;

           

          Hope this helps.
