Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Flash Movie detecting its own web adress...

    Flash Movie detecting its own web adress...


    I was just wondering if it was possible for a flash movie to detect the webpage it is being displayed on without any server side help?

    For example, if I had a movie on the page:

    "www.kirupa.com/a/mymovie.html" (imaginary link; does not work)

    How would I be able to get the link adress,"www.kirupa.com/a/mymovie.html" detected inside the flash movie while its running?

    For anyone who knows PHP, it would be similiar to "$PHP_SELF" function

    Is this possible?

    Many thanks in advance! =-]

    This worked for me, assuming that the name of the HTML file is the same as the name of the swf:
    var HTML = _root._url.split(".swf").join(".html");
    Of course, if you have access to PHP, a better choice would be to pass the value of $PHP_SELF along to the Flash movie with FlashVars.
    Wait, what?
