    resolved

    First of all, I am a complete newbie to Flash!

    I generate variables through a server side application which normally would be displayed either as a part of a form or in tables.

    Now this variables should be read by Flash (that's the problem here) and after that certain action is taken.

    If I can easily assign this variables to forms using f.e. <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="fieldname" VALUE="&[valueToAssign]"> how to I get Flash to read that "valueToAssign" variable?

    Does this make sense to you? Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Surely you can do it without ActionScript GmF?

    In the web page, find the line of the <object> tag that specifies the path of the movie file. Once found, do this:

    ... src="MyMovie.swf?flashVar=&[valueToAssign]" ....

    Once the flash movie has loaded, it will have a variable named "flashVar" that holds the value of your variable "valueToAssign".

    Good luck!
