Getting data from PHP


I guess this has been discussed here before but I was unable to find the information, that’s why I’m going to ask

I have an HTML page containing a linking image like this:

<a href=“show.php?id=01”><img src=“images/image_01.jpg” alt=“First image”></a>

As you can see the image links to show.php transmitting the variable “id”.

The show.php file includes a Flash (version 8) movie. My question is how do I load the variable “id” into the flash movie. What I mean is:

  • the user clicks the image_01.jpg
  • the new, show.php page opens
  • the flash movie read the “id” (which is 01 in this particular case) an will display image_01.jpg

Many, many thanks inadvance for your help!
