I have another conceptual question:
Is it possible to use Flex MXML (or another mechanism inside FlexBuilder) to manipulate variables and objects inside embedded ActionScript?
If so, how is embedeed ActionScript code accessed? I assume dot notation because that's how ActionScript works but I'm vern new to Flex.
P.S. What I'd really like to be able to do is embed SWF files into FlexBuilder (easy enough) and be able to manipulate the ActionScript in those embedded SWF files using Flex via Plain Text or XML data (that I assume would be imported). Does this sound plausible?
I believe the ActionScript in the SWF you load are accessible. See these links:
If this post answered your question or helped, please mark it as such.
Good links. I found it especially useful to be able to just drag-and-drop SWF files into the flex project and also just drop the SWFLoader.
However, these links don't quite answer my question. Of course I might have asked it wrong. I want to be able to access objects that are INSIDE the imported SWF file not just do simple things like make it play/stop or rotate the SWF file itself. I want to be able to go in and access a radio button for instance, or create a new radio button, or manipulate the SWF file from inside in various ways. Is this possible?
