View Full Version : Need to get some variable values from javascript

Hi everyone

This is the first time i am using flash and working on javascript so i need some help.

When i press a button on the flash animation, in my action script mouse press event, i need to get the value of a variable which has been declared in the script section of an HTML file. I have a javascript func. which returns the value of the variable declared in the HTML file.

My question is - How can action script obtain the value of a variable declared in the script section of the HTML file ?

Actionscript does have functions like getURL etc. but none have been helpful so far.

example javascriptfunction that sets a variable :
function functionName(myVariable) {
if (window.document.mymovie) {
window.document.mymovie.SetVariable("jscriptVariable", myVariable);

U'll need to add some in the html-file where u embed the swf :

In the OBJECT tag : id="mymovie"
In the EMBED tag : NAME=mymovie

To get the variable :
someVariable = _root:jscriptVariable;

With thanks to Robert Penner.
