Sorry - also posted here, but getting no replies:
I've been working with this tutorial:
Using AS1, I've been able to extract a variable from a SWF, e.g. the SWF has a querystring associated with it, in the HTML of the web page on which it is embedded:
It's easy to get the variable into AS1 - it's just there, without doing anything.
<param name="movie" value="loaderInfoExample.swf?userName=TestUser" />
<embed src="loaderInfoExample.swf?userName=TestUser" ....
I've tried to do the same in AS2, but I can't get it to work, using Permadi's page.
All I want to do is to get the value of the 'userName' var from the SWF Querystring, into a variable in the SWF.
Any advice about the AS syntax to use would be much appreciated. The example on the Permadi page didn't work - I may have been doing something very wrong of course.
I have attached an example fla, swf and html file to show my issue.
