I'm looking to build a standard container in flex that will
deal with all of my flash swfs. I'd like it to act as a preloader,
and when it's loaded the content act as a player where it controls
the playback of the flash file. I'd also like to be able to retrive
variables from the swfs when certain events occur. At the moment,
I'm thinking that it might need to support AS 2 and 3.
So what I'm really asking is, can I control the timeline of a
loaded flash file with flex? Also, can I pass events and variables
from both my AS 2/3 files to the flex controller, and what's the
best way to approach doing this?
