Hi, I hope somebody can nail this for me.
I have a flash movie embedded in an.html file. I am trying to pass a variable to the flash movie using FlashVars, so that the movie will start from a specific frame.
I have FlashVars="startVAR=2" in the embed, as well as <param name="FlashVars" value="startVAR=2">
Then in the first frame of my Flash movie I have
which should cause the movie to jump to frame 2 on loading. But it does nothing.
So I removed the gotoandstop and instead place a dynamic text box in frame 1, with the variable name StartVAR. It should display the value 2 when the movie loads, but the box is blank.
The variable just isn't getting from the HTML file to the SWF file.
