Do you know how to loadVariables in flash ? - if so it s the same deal .. except that instead of loadVariables('vars.txt');

you loadVariables('http://domain.com/variables.php');

where all that variable.php will output is the data you need in the required var=this&var2=that format.

but get used to loading variables from a text file first , I think that flashMX automates this somewhat ? - not sure cos I never tried it but its straightforward in flash4/5

You can use the following code:


print "&somevar=$somevar&anothervar=$anothervar"

I guess something like that.
Hope it works

I think you kinda missed the point. We are talking about loading variables in flash, from PHP.

sorry to bring this thread back, but i am interested in this...I am native to working in flash and just started working in php.....

u can either bring it in as a string or an xml formatted documented, as of (mx) as far as I know.....what seems to be the best method?

ne body have ne ideas?

also one last item....

I am working with php to make a function that creates a button out of an image:

function display_button($target, $image, $alt)
echo "<center><a href=\"$target\"><img src=\"images/$image".".swf\"
alt=\"$alt\" border=0 height = 50 width = 135></a></center>";

it cant seem to see the .swf file....is this a limitation in php....

I now that gifs and jpegs seem to work....and the very limited png seems to work on my windows setup...

does ne body know about this?

PHP is nothing to do with your problem. As far as I know, you can't call flash from an img tag, you can only do it via the object or embed tag.
