Track Flash Variables across multiple #Articulate slides (screenr screencast)
Sunday_taz contacted me in the Articulate forums to ask how to get multiple Flash files to track the same information across multiple Articulate slides.
The key lays in Flash’s _global property. The _global property refers to an object that exists at the highest level of a swf and is therefore accessible by any other swfs loaded into it. We can take advantage of that by tucking our variables into it.
The two key things to remember here are:
- I needed to target Flash Player 7 (or higher) when I published my swfs.
- When inserting your swf choose the “Movie plays independently” option.
Here is a quick screenr on how to do it. Download files: global.zip
