    I'm involved in a project where flash is used to generate pie charts, bar graphs, line charts, etc. on the fly from a querystring. The files were built in 5.0 and I'm told worked fine. When going to MX however, some of the charts and graphs stopped working. The information I was able to obtain suggested changing all the "eval" statements to "this." I did that, but with no success.

    If any actionscript gurus out there are interested in working on the project please email me. You will be paid for your efforts.

    Thanks,

    i'm guessing you were using eval on the left side of the equation.

    Code:
    eval(myVar + "graph") = "whatever"
    do this instead

    Code:
    this[myVar + "graph"] = "whatever"
    if thats not your porblem, could you be more specific...

    I've tried changing the eval to this, but it didn't fix the code. There must be additional issues over and above this. I've had someone mention that it is probably a "scope" issue.

    If anyone is interested in getting paid to dig through these files and make them work in MX please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    you want to get it to work with flash mx or flash 6 player or both?

    Code:
    eval() 
    
    //to
    
    this[]
