Default Parameter passing to Flash

hello, i am new to actionscripting and went through many of the tutorials on net. with a basic knowledge now, i want to know how the parameter passing can be accomplished from html to flash.

i wil explain you the problem.

let us consider a water tank. the level of the water tank should be set depending on the parameter i recive from a html file. if i get 57%. then level in the tank must indicate as such.

pls help me on this.

Thanks a lot.

Do u mean passing a value from javascript (html) to flash function.

ExternalInterface class of flash is the answer. Google it and u will fiind ways to send variable values from Javascript to Flash and Flash to Javascript.

is there something available like a debugger in order to know if the process you are doing is correct? i think that would be a very helpful tool if there wasn't (hey all you coding guys heads up!!) - -Fishfool @ The Reef Tank

Hey, if you are just trying to pass in params, in your embed / object tag you can add them after the name of the flash file like:


and in your flash you can reference them like parameters.param and parameters.param2
