  • Loading images into a flash file using Flashvars


    I'm trying to load 4 images into a flash file and fade between them. I'm thinking maybe I can use Flashvars to do this and set the image names in the HTML, i.e.,

    <param name="FlashVars" value="image1=image1.jpg" />
    <param name="FlashVars" value="image2=image2.jpg" />
    <param name="FlashVars" value="image3=image3.jpg" />
    <param name="FlashVars" value="image4=image4.jpg" />

    But what I'm not sure about is how I would reference these images within the Flash file, so that I can animate between them?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    It should be like this
    <param name="FlashVars" value="image1=image1.jpg&amp;image2=image2.jpg&amp;image3=image3.jpg&amp;image4=image4.jpg" />
    Then in your actionscript you can access them by doing something like
    var img1 = this.image1;
    var img2 = this.image2;
    var img3 = this.image3;
    var img4 = this.image4;

      how do I load an image using flashvars?

      Hello All,

      I don't know how to add an image in a flashplayer using flashvars. Can anyone help me?

      Actually, I want to add an image at the background in a flash player before the video is played.

      This is a part of the HTML code:

      The colored text are the changes i've made using dreamweaver:

      <param name="movie" value="express 800x550 q50 b5000 mp4_controller.swf" />
      <param name="quality" value="best" />
      <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
      <param name="scale" [B][COLOR="Navy"]value="exactfit"[/COLOR][/B] />
      <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
      <param name="flashvars" [B][COLOR="Navy"]value="image=w.png[/COLOR][/B]&autostart=false&thumb=BOX ICON 3-4.png&thumbscale=45[B][COLOR="Navy"]&color=0x234456,0x234456[/COLOR][/B]" />
      changes made in scale-value and flashvars-color reflected in the html except the flashvars image.

      Is it possible to add an image in this code??

      Thank you.
