    knowing the button that you click.

    well I'm having a hard time finding the words to discribe this. I know it can be done and may have been brought up but I didn't know what keywords to look for so here I am.

    I want to have buttons that when I click on it i can say something like this:
    Code:
    on (press) {
     _root.somefunction(this);
    }
    So I want it to send the name of the button either instance name or what ever to the function that will be sending that to a PHP script.
    Any help would be apretiated. I know this works:
    Code:
    on (press) {
    _root.someFunction("someName");
    }
    but I want to load the buttons dynamiclly and don't want to have to go in to flash and type "someName" you know

    you want to send the button name to the function?
    Code:
    on (press) {
    	_root.someFunction(this._name);
    }

    Ok still not working

    Ok I tried this code:


    Code:
    //Frame actions: 
    
    function loadText (btn) {
    	if (btn == "VON") {
    		
    loadVarsText = new loadVars();
    loadVarsText.load("Somewebsite");
    loadVarsText.load("Somewebsite");
    loadVarsText.onLoad = function(success) {
    	if (success) {
    		trace("done loading");
    		teamText.text = this.VONTeam;
    	} else {
    		trace("not loaded");
    	}
    };
    	}else{
    		trace("Failed");
    	}
    }
    
    //Button actions
    
    on (release) {
    	_root.loadText(this._name); // This button is named VON in the library and also the instance name.
    }
    Of corse this is not working or I wouldn't be here. Thank you for helping .
