You would need decide which Flash Actionscript classes depending on your
This can include:
1. LoadVars AS class. To fetch URL formatted data from a server script that
in turn gets the data from a server file or database.
2. XML AS class. To fetch XML formatted data from a server script that in
turn gets the data from a server file or database.
3. SharedObject AS class to fetch Object AS class data from the user's
computer that you probably also wrote there. This is the equivalent to
cookies only contained in Flash.
4. FlashVars parameter of the OBJECT and EMBED tages. Usually a server side
script formats part of the OBJECT and EMBED tag to provide data from a
server file or database. The variables named in the FlashVars parameter are
then available on the root timeline of the Movie at the first frame.
Once the data is retrieved from these sources you can then addItems to the
combo box which usually entail a loop but really depends on the structure of
the data you have.
May many happy bits flow your way!
