The following are examples of applications that hold host Flash movies:. It's simple to use an FSCommand from within Flash. The fscommand function accepts two parameters: a command name, and optional extra information. The extra information is used as a parameter of the command:. When Flash executes an fscommand , the host application receives notification that a command has been sent to it.
The name of the command is sent, as well as any optional parameter data. The host application must be programmed to deal with these incoming commands; it looks at the name of the incoming command and reacts accordingly, using any optional parameter data to complete the task. This functionality will become clearer as we progress in this lesson.
Let's explore in detail some of the previously mentioned uses of the fscommand function. Using the Publish settings in Flash, you can publish a Flash movie as a projector. A projector file typically contains your movie as well as the Flash player.
The fscommand function can be used in your movie so that it can communicate with the projector in various ways. There are six built-in FSCommands that the standalone player can execute:.
This command forces the standalone player to play at full screen if true or at the defined movie size if false. This command determines what happens if the user resizes the projector window while your movie is playing.
If false , the player window is still resizable, but the movie playing inside it remains at its original size. Right-clicking Control-clicking on a Macintosh a movie playing in the standalone player opens a context menu. The minimal version of this menu is shown if this fscommand parameter is set to false.
The full menu is shown if true. This command executes opens another application such as an. EXE file on Windows. The parameter is the filename of the application to open. Applications opened using this command must reside in a folder named fscommand. This folder must reside in the same directory as the projector. If true , all key events are sent to the Flash player. If false , certain key events such as accelerator keypresses are not sent. Any of these commands can be executed from within your movie using syntax similar to the following:.
Standalone FSCommands have no effect on Flash movies played outside the stand alone player. AppleScript is a built-in scripting language for the Macintosh operating system. AppleScripts files containing AppleScript code are used to tell the operating system to perform tasks such as these:. One of the more powerful aspects of using the exec FSCommand in a Macintosh-based projector is its capability to execute an AppleScript.
Let's look at a simple example. This is not intended to be extensive instruction on how to create AppleScripts, but rather a simple demonstration of how AppleScripts can be executed via Flash. The following AppleScript opens the file named catalog. To execute this AppleScript from Flash, you name it for example, launchCatalog , save it in the fscommand folder, and create a script within your Flash movie similar to the following:.
Several companies make software to extend the functionality of a Flash movie. Most of these products take an SWF file and wrap it within a powerful executable shell.
This shell can be considered a high-tech "box" that contains your SWF. The box has been programmed with the capability to perform all sorts of tasks that a typical SWF can't do. Think of the SWF as the interface and brains of the resulting application, and the box executable as the facilitator.
These are a few of the most popular products that extend Flash:. SWF Studio Northcode www. Screenweaver Rubberduck www. At this time, no software exists to create enhanced standalone Flash movies for non-Windows operating systems. These applications extend Flash's capabilities with hundreds of commands. EXE file. When opened, this file contains and plays your SWF movie, and is sent commands by your movie. The end result is a powerful Flash movie. The following are a few of the tasks that can be accomplished with FSCommands through the use of a third-party tool:.
Save a screenshot of the Flash content or a specific area within the Flash content. Although most of the extended functionality that you gain from these software products comes from executing FSCommands, several configurable options can be set directly from the software's interface to be applied to the executable file that's created :.

Home Macromedia Flash MX There are six built-in FSCommands that the standalone player can execute: fscommand "quit" This command closes the standalone player window. Executing Applescripts with Fscommands AppleScript is a built-in scripting language for the Macintosh operating system.

NOTE Because the success of this communication depends on the specific browser and version, some Flash developers limit their use of the fscommand function. Remember the name: eTutorials.

The fscommand function enables a Flash movie to communicate with the application that's currently holding the movie. The following are examples of applications that hold host Flash movies:. The ExternalInterface class that was introduced with Flash 8 is generally more powerful than using fscommand because with ExternalInterface your application can call specific functions and receive responses in the application that is holding the SWF file, such as a web browser. However, the fscommand function is still useful if exporting to Flash 7 or older, or exporting for use in a projector. It's simple to use fscommand from within Flash. The fscommand function accepts two parameters: a command name, and optional extra information. The extra information is used as a parameter of the command:.
