Reading data

To retrieve data from a saved Shared Object, just use the following syntax:
	stored_user_name = local_data.data.user_name;
	stored_user_age = local_data.data.user_age;
Don't forget that you still have to create the local_data shared object first. Now, the user's name is stored in a variable called "stored_user_name" and the user's age in the variable "stored_user_age"and you can use it anywhere in your movie.

You can store more information in one Shared Object file in the same way.

Similar to the way how we have saved simple text variables you can store whole arrays and other objects.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
