Pass variable between .swf's using http?

Does anyone know if it’s possible to pass a variable between two .swf’s using http?

For example, I have a .html page, doc1.html, that contains a .swf that has var x = “ben”. Then I proceed to doc2.html and want to pass var x to the .swf in doc2.html. Is it possible to pass var x onto doc2.html via http?

I haven’t been able to find any solid tutorials or info on this.

Thanx for any help!


I guess only by writting the swf’s object tag dynamically with javascript to pass in the param’ you want.
Or you could use a hidden frame with a persistent swf in it, and use localConnection between main swf page doc1=>connector swf=>main swf page doc2 to pass params around…

Thanx Joe. That makes sense. I just wish there was an easier way to simply pass vars in the http address, like passing a var to a cfm page.
