View Full Version : Import External SWF, whilst using Internal Variables

11-04-2008, 01:36 PM

I haven't done any flash programming for about 4 years! So AS3 is going to be a bit of a challenge for me to pick up.

I was wondering if it is possible to import an external SWF, and then have that SWF use the original variables to display data.

I want to make a dynamic file that can pull in different skins, or rather set the variables in the initial file, and then use them in the skin file (which I think will be easier, but less dynamic).

If you could could give me a few pointers to get this going I would be very grateful.

I'm working with PHP and MySQL to pull the data from a database and then assign it to variables within flash. I've been using PHP and MySQL for about 6 years now, and I'm pretty good at it.
