    problems with loadVariables in flash

    hi guys, im a newbie to flash and having some problems with displaying text using the loadVariables() function. While using the queryString method to pass variables from a c++/HTML file (cgicsript.cpp) to an embedded flash movie in another c++/HTML page.

    code from the cgiscript.cpp file is as below:

    cout <<"<BODY bgcolor=\"#CCCCCC\">"
    <<"<object width=\"550\" height=\"400\">"
    <<"<param name=\"allowScriptAccess\" value=\"sameDomain\">"
    <<"<param name=\"movie\" value=\"proteinMovie2.swf?protein="
    << seq1String << "\">"
    <<"<embed src=\"C:\\Program Files\\e-novative\\WAMP\\www\\proteinMovie2.swf?protein=" << seq1String << "\" width=\"550\" height=\"400\">"
    <<"</embed>"
    <<"</object>";


    seq1String is a series of letters in a string eg. "fktkrrgthyl"

    the code in the flash movie (proteinMovie2.swf) is as below:

    _root.createTextField("input",20,50,50,200,300);
    input.background=true;
    input.border=true;
    input.backgroundColor=0xFFFFFF;//white
    input.borderColor=0x000000;//black
    input.multiline=true;
    input.wordWrap=true;
    input.variable="protein";
    //create some formatting for our text box
    newTextFormat = new TextFormat();
    newTextFormat.font = "Arial";
    newTextFormat.size = 12;
    newTextFormat.color=0x000000;//black
    input.setNewTextFormat(newTextFormat); //format our text box
    loadVariables("protein", "_root");

    the movie is embedded and displays the textbox frame but does not printout seq1String contents. any help would be great. thanks heaps guys!

    loadVariables actually looks for a URL which returns a GET string. Use _root._URL instead of _root, which returns the path and the query string, which you should then run through either split or a substring to remove any excess information.

    Also, your _root should not be a string, as it is a path.
