    Flex - Flash Integration

    oscar7878 Level 1
      Hi,

      I am working on a Flex project that loads dynamicaly a swf file (flash 8 / actionscript 2). I need Flex listening events dispatrched from flash.
      Is that posible?
      I read about the LocalConnection class but this looks like is used to communicate diferent swf files in the same html documments.

      Any ideas will be very apreciated.

      tks,

          LocalConnection is the way to go. It is for SWF-to-SWF communication, but ActionScript 2 SWFs loaded into Flash Player 9 occupy a different virtual space than ActionScript 3 SWFs. So you need LocalConnectiton to get them talking.

          If possible, upgrade to Flash CS3 and you'll have ActionScript 3 SWFs which can be loaded into the same virtual space.

          See my blog for details (search LocalConnection): weblogs.macromedia.com/pent
