Contao Flash Content Extension

This is the "Flash Content" extension for Contao Open Source CMS, which allows you to manage the contents of your Flash movie in Contao and to dynamically load them into the Flash movie.


The extension can be installed using the Contao extension manager in the Contao back end. If you prefer to install it manually, download the files here:


Here is the code you have to add to your Flash movie to load the contents:

TextField.prototype._loadArticle = function(flashID) {
    tf = this;
    // Enable HTML mode and remove content
    tf.html = true;
    tf.htmlText = "";
    // Instantiate a new LoadVars object
    lv = new LoadVars();
    lv["flashID"] = flashID;
    lv.sendAndLoad(URL + "flash.php", lv, "POST");
    lv.onLoad = function(success) {
        if (success) {
            tf.htmlText = lv["content"];
// Load the Flash content "myArticle" into the text field "myTextBox"
