When my flash movie reaches a specific frame I need it to set a javascript variable to 1. How would I do this?

if(this._currentframe == 10)
{
//javascript var = 1???
}

Thanks.

Look up ExternalInterface in the help docs. This will enable you to call a javascript function from inside flash. You can use this function to set your variable.
