I know how to get a Flash file to wait to receive a variable
value from (for
example) the containing HTML page. However, I'm not sure how
to get a Flex
file to do this. Can anyone point me to a tutorial that could

OK, please back up and slow down. I am very new to Flex, so
you're going to
have to explain a few things to me. I can't send FlashVars,
using the ActiveX control embedded in an application. I can
in after the Flash file loads into the ActiveX, but I am a
bit fuzzy on how
I put the application into one state while it is waiting for
the variable to
change, then detect the variable change and change state
based on what is
received. With a time line this all is fairly intuitive, but
I look at the
XML and see few clues as to how to accomplish this in Flex.
