    Hmmm I normally work in VBscript and like to pull content and just about anything I can from a database my I have been in the past using a com object installed on my local server to make text graphics but I want something that looks better so I thought I might try to use css to customize normal text but it still doesn't look cool enough I would really like to make navigation for my website in flash but it needs to be adminable and pullable from a database

    Do you guys have an suggestions on how I can pull content from a database into a flash movie dynamically links to tutorials will be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Hi,

    just one simple example for a menu that loads from a database - dynmenu article at http://www.neuralust.com/~mingdocs - but you will probably find half a dozen different ones in the tutorial section at flashkit. As far as the database interconnect is concerned, they will all load variables from a textfile or database in much the same way

    @roele: your site comes up with a 404 for styles.css and is locking out N4.x browsers this way

    If you work in VBscript then you'll have no problem, the information that you want to send into Flash just use:

    basically:

    response.write("&varnameinflash=" & server.URLEncode(rstemp("feild1")))

    call the page from flash

    loadVariablesNum ("mynew.asp", 0, "POST");
