Chapter 16. Working with External Data > About the External API

About the External API

The ExternalInterface class is also called the External API, which is a new subsystem that lets you easily communicate from ActionScript and the Flash Player container to an HTML page with JavaScript or to a desktop application that embeds Flash Player.

Note

This functionality replaces the older fscommand() function for interoperating with a HTML page or a container application. The External API offers more robust functionality than fscommand() in this situation. For more information, see “About the External API” on page 680.
