Hi Maurice, How about sending it in as a URL variable when you load preloader.swf into the html page?
In the HTML: <object .....> <param name="movie" value="swf/preloader.swf?path=swf/" /> ... <embed src="swf/preloader.swf?path=swf/" .../> </object> Then in preloader.swf: var ojtParams:Object = this.loaderInfo.parameters; var swfPath:String = ojtParams.path; hth, Bob -----Original Message----- From: flashcoders-boun...@chattyfig.figleaf.com [mailto:flashcoders-boun...@chattyfig.figleaf.com] On Behalf Of maurice sallave Sent: Wednesday, June 03, 2009 1:30 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [Flashcoders] swf paths... Hello! First time on here, so thanks for any advice. I'm pulling in a preloader.swf file into an html file that sits at root "swf/preloader.swf". All my swf's are located in a swf directory that gets preloaded into this preloader.swf - simple enough. I'd like to try to keep my server as clean as possible without having to hard-code the path into the preloader.swf file and don't want to use flashvars as a way of referencing my targeted path. Is there another way of doing this? Of course if I put the html file inside the swf directory, everything works, but it defeats the purpose of keeping my server organized. I hope this makes sense and again thanks in advance. _______________________________________________ Flashcoders mailing list Flashcoders@chattyfig.figleaf.com http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/mailman/listinfo/flashcoders _______________________________________________ Flashcoders mailing list Flashcoders@chattyfig.figleaf.com http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/mailman/listinfo/flashcoders
