darn tootin' its possible...

I think the syntax within the Flash getURL action would be more like
getURL="http://somesite.com/+ index.html?var=value"
But that will depend on the lanquage you're using...

Below is an example of how to set the variable to a given value within the
<object>+<embed> tags. I wouldn't think a little variable logic would give
you a problem...

<!-code -->

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
b#version=4,0,2,0" width="740" height="272"><param name=movie
value=images/va_final_home_face.swf?pageVar=home><param name=quality
value=high><embed src="images/va_final_home_face.swf?pageVar=home"
Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="740"

<!- /code ->

Subject: [thelist] passing variables to a flash action

Does anybody know if the following is possible - I have found lots of
information about passing variables to Flash but not about doing exactly

I have a variable in a page that I want to send to a URL in flash along the
lines of
.. src='flashmovie.swf?var=<?echo $var?>"

and in the flash action, something like:

so that I do not have to change the movie every time the variable is

Can this work? and what would be the real syntax?
