    URL variables.

      Hi,

       

      I wonder if you might be able to offer me some advice on this problem.

       

      I'm basically trying to extract a series of variables that are passed in URL from another flash movie. I have researched flash vars and the like and didnt really get far.

       

      I tried another approach.


      using this code:

       

      var addr:String = flash.external.ExternalInterface.call("function(){return window.location.href}").toString();
      var section = addr.split("&");
      trace (section);

       

      I was able to get the URL into Flash!

       

      So flash now has a variable called "section" that holds a string like this.

       

      http://www.xxxxxx.net/search?days=2,weeks=10,years=0

       

      My question is; how do i get the values held in each of these days, weeks, years, etc into a format that can be used with in the flash movie. Ideally into seperate variables where the values can be returned in a textbox.

       

      Any advice or help is gratefully recieved.

       

      Many thanks
