View Full Version : [FIXED][3.0.0] Fix: Ext.FlashComponent pass parameters to swfobject

29 Jul 2009, 1:07 PM
Hi all,

I love the Ext.FlashComponent already :) But I wanted to pass in extra parameters to the swf file, and since I discovered ext uses swfobject, I knew it was possible. So with the fix below in the Ext.FlashComponent's onRender method, I can use:

var movie = new Ext.FlashComponent({
url : '/movie.swf',
flashVars: {
myParameter: 'a value',
anotherOne: 2
});In Actionscript 3, now you can use:

root.loaderInfo.parameters.myParameter (='a value') and root.loaderInfo.parameters.anotherOne (=2)

onRender : function(){
Ext.FlashComponent.superclass.onRender.apply(this, arguments);

var params = {
allowScriptAccess: 'always',
bgcolor: this.backgroundColor,
wmode: this.wmode
}, vars = Ext.apply(this.flashVars||{},{
allowedDomain: document.location.hostname,
elementID: this.getId(),
eventHandler: 'Ext.FlashEventProxy.onEvent'

new swfobject.embedSWF(this.url, this.id, this.swfWidth, this.swfHeight, this.flashVersion,
this.expressInstall ? Ext.FlashComponent.EXPRESS_INSTALL_URL : undefined, vars, params);

},Best regards,

I'm swf ignorant. There's no need to also do similar with the params also?

I'm not sure if being able to change the params variable is valuable too. Heck, it might be usefull to be able to override all parameters. :-?

Search for 'swfobject.embedSWF' in the swfobject API docs (http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/wiki/api),
in my standalone swfobject usage, I used the flashvars parameter to pass information to the flash file, and that works.
