    Can I Embed a URL into Flash?

    ScottE

      Hi All,

       

      I have a dynamic graphic that is updated periodically.  I want to know if I can embed the URL into Flash.  The URL is:

      http://cache.www.gametracker.com/server_info/68.232.170.145:16567/banner_560x95.png?random =751479

       

      I'm using CS4 but am developing this site in AS2.

       

      Many Thanks,

      Scott

          what do you mean by, "embed the url"?

           

          you can hardcode that url.  and you can pass the url to your swf using a variety of methods depending on your needs.  but i can't see how the term "embed" applies to your situation.

            Hi Keith,

             

            I would like to have the URL embedded in my Flash project (web site).  So that the URL is displayed in a section of the web site.  I suppose the best way to explain this is that I want the URL to be displayed automatically on the web site with no mouse or user interactions.

             

            Does that help explain it?

             

            Thanks,

            Scott

              you can't embed the url in flash.  you can open the same window to that url or open another window to that url (subject to the user's popup blocker if you don't use a mouse click).
