Not sure if anyone can help or not...but figured I would try. I'm using software to produce CD's for my application and I'm trying to use absolute paths based off the software language to ensure my SWF is always found. So far, I can't figure out how to set a string value on the drop down list. Here's my function which loads any number of SWF's based off the value of the drop down list:

Code: [ Select ]
function droplist_function(){
    if(droplist=="test"){
    aFile=evt.target.selectedItem.data.toString();
    basePath = mdm.Application.path;
    if (basePath != undefined) {
    aFile = basePath+aFile.split("/").join("\\");
}
}
    _parent.container.loadMovie(aFile);

}
  1. function droplist_function(){
  2.     if(droplist=="test"){
  3.     aFile=evt.target.selectedItem.data.toString();
  4.     basePath = mdm.Application.path;
  5.     if (basePath != undefined) {
  6.     aFile = basePath+aFile.split("/").join("\\");
  7. }
  8. }
  9.     _parent.container.loadMovie(aFile);
  10. }


Here's the combo box code:

Code: [ Select ]
function droplist_function(){
    if(droplist=="test"){
    aFile=evt.target.selectedItem.data.toString();
    basePath = mdm.Application.path;
    if (basePath != undefined) {
    aFile = basePath+aFile.split("/").join("\\");
}
}
    _parent.container.loadMovie(aFile);

}
  1. function droplist_function(){
  2.     if(droplist=="test"){
  3.     aFile=evt.target.selectedItem.data.toString();
  4.     basePath = mdm.Application.path;
  5.     if (basePath != undefined) {
  6.     aFile = basePath+aFile.split("/").join("\\");
  7. }
  8. }
  9.     _parent.container.loadMovie(aFile);
  10. }


It's playing everything except loading in the appropriate file and I'm almost positive its because it can't get a string value off of the drop down list. If anyone has a suggestion, it would be appreciated.
