I am trying to pass a variable from an HTML page to a dynamic text box in my flash movie. I can do this without any problem with basic text and a few html tags (like <b>, <i>, and <br>), but I can't get a link (<a href="...) to show up. Is the problem more than likely in the html or the flash file? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Here is the string from the html:
<param name="movie" value="test.swf?text=hello<a href="http://www.yahoo.com">click here for more info</a>" />

The text box in my flash file is a dynamic text box named "text". I have "Render text as html" selected.

i may need more info on your problem but have you tried sending two varibles?
test.swf?text=hello&link=http://www.yahoo.com

Thank you for your reply. What I am trying to do is pass some text to a dynamic text box in my flash file. I can do this with out any problems, that is until I try to add a link. The link will not show up. For example, if I put this in my HTML file:

<param name="movie" value="test.swf?text=hello<a href="http://www.yahoo.com">click here for more info</a>" />

..this is what shows up in the text box in my flash file:

hello

Nothing after the <a href...> shows up. Ideally, I would want it to show this:

hello click here for more info (with click here for more info being a hyperlink)


I don't know what the problem is. Thanks for your time!
