Just starting to learn flash and actionscript, so please forgive my ignorance. I've also tried searching etc. but I couldn't find any subject that adressed my specific question
I'm trying to pass some variables to an actionscript using flashvars. I've written a php script that will generate the HTML needed:
<PARAM NAME=FLASHVARS VALUE="year=' . $year . '&month=' . $month . '&day=' . $day;
and also this:
FLASHVARS="year=' . $year . '&month=' . $month . '&day=' . $day;
inside the embed HTML tag as I understand that you need both for cross browser compability.
Now what I want to do next is to get this info and store it in some variables in actionscript, and I've read various tutorials on how to do it, but I just can't seem to get it to work. This is the actionscript i'm using, which obviously doesn't work?
var targetYear = trace(year);
var targetMonth = trace(month);
var targetDay = trace(day);
BTW, i'm using Adobe Flash CS3 set to actionscript 1.0 & 2.0. I think I read somewhere that flashvars only work with Flash MX, but I don't know if that's true, or, indeed, what Flash MX is...
Could anyone explain what I need to do, and help a poor newb out here?
Thanks in advance
