Embedding Movies with Flash, Part III: More Properties

Finding the SWF's URL

The URL property designates the location of the SWF file. You may get this property, but you cannot set it. The URL property is no. 15, so you get its value by going:

  mySwf.TGetProperty(timeline, 15);

Play the following movie by clicking the Play link. Get the URL of the movie by clicking the Get URL link. Of course, you can get the movie's URL without playing it first:

Rewind | Play | Get URL

Here is the source code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="flashcheck2.js">
</SCRIPT>
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 Rewind(); return false">Rewind</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 Play(); return false">Play</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:alert(mySwf2.
 TGetProperty('/', 15));
  return false">Get URL</A>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  var mySwf2 = Flash_embedSWF("opener.swf", "opener");
</SCRIPT>
