    Umbraco:Item Content to display on Flash Movie

    Hello, I about to start a new project soon and it evolves the customer wanting full control of the content and saving to recreate several flash files for different countries, but the customer would highly prefer the content of the flash file to be able to editable from umbraco. Im very newish to the world of umbraco even though been using it roughly over a year.

    Does any one know if it is possible if umbraco items such as a textstring/textarea to which content can send that content and display on the flash file?

    Hi Paul,

    You can definately serve content from Umbraco to Flash.  Typically you would setup your Flash file to read from XML, then you can use the combination of an altTemplate and an XSLT Macro in Umbraco to dynamically create/serve the XML.

    Here's an article on Tim's blog about it, it's for an older version but the idea is the same:

    There's also a video on  Loading Umbraco data into Flash

    Hope this helps,
