Accessing vvvv var with actionscript 3


I’m trying to access a variable connected to the vvvv flash renderer node in actionscript 3.

in as2 it’s fairly easy: it’s just part of the _root element.
So you can access it like any flash variable just by using its name.

in as3 _root doesn’t exist anymore, and I have trouble to find my variable…

Did anyone succeed with this and has a solution?

just tried the as3 way of accessing variables from url string (movie.swf?variablename=variablevalue) and the html flashvar property:
myTextField.text = root.loaderInfo.parameters.variablename;

in a forum I saw the following proposal, and tried it also:
myTextField.text = this"variablename";

both ways don’t seem to work.
