I'm generally trying to make a blog. So I've tried declaring string variables in between the <heads> section like this:
<script type="text/javasrcipt">var blogcontent = "something something."</script>
So I'm trying to get it to be dispalyed in my flash movie like so:
_root.somewhere.htmlText = blogcontent;

Thanks "oldnewbie"...hmm...paradox. :D I read up the article and tried to apply it. But I still doesn't work. In the flash I did something like this:
myLeftMargin = 10;
_root.bg.createTextField("theText", 1, 10, 10, _root.bg._width-(2*myLeftMargin), 100);
_root.bg.theText.wordWrap = true;
_root.bg.theText.html = true;
_root.bg.theText.htmlText = BLOG;
And in the webpage something like this:
var movie = window.document.movie;
movie.SetVariable("BLOG", "If this shows. Then it works.");
Am I doing something wrong here? :confused: I seem to be missing the beef patty in the beef burger I'm trying make!! ARRGGHHH!!! :mad:

A little more complex than just that...
You should attach your testing .fla (along with your .html) zipped up and in a MX only format (or lower), not MX2004, and I'll set it up for you...

Here's the file, thanks!! Really appreciate this!! :D

Here ya go!
I've move your movie elements to frame 2, and added a stop(); action, because there's a delay between creating a dynamic textfield and assigning some text to it.
I've also corrected your .html and commented it...
That said, you could possibly achieve the same results with appending a simple query string variable or using FlashVars...

but it still doesn't work...kinda starting to understand...I published the flash file and opened the html file...but no text appeared in the text field!! I've checked the URL and I don't think there's anything wrong...btw...I tested it on both Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer 6 and still doesn't work.
And why is it you put in
Why do you want to hide it?
