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:

    "" (imaginary link; does not work)

    How would I be able to get the link adress,"" 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?
