I am using a Flash file that calls gallery.xml
its hardcoded into the flash and i cant edit the flash file.

<cfsavecontent variable="gallery">
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <gallery frameColor="0xFFFFFF" frameWidth="15" imagePadding="20" displayTime="6" enableRightClickOpen="true">
           <caption><![CDATA[<font size="50">Example Gallery</font><br>An example large format <u><a href="http://www.airtightinteractive.com/projects/autoviewer">AutoViewer</a></u> gallery.]]></caption>
           <caption>Pellentesque turpis leo, dignissim ac, vestibulum quis, hendrerit quis, enim.</caption>

Since the <object> tag is only calling the Flash file, that is all fine. Your problem is likely either:

  1. Your coldfusion code is in the file named "gallery.xml" in which case the colfusion processor is not going to parse it. or...

Your CF code is in a .cfm file that is not being read by the flash file.
If your CF code were in "gallery.cfm", you could take the contents of your variable (the xml) and write it to a file named "gallery.xml". Try adding this to the end of your coldfusion code:

<cffile action = "write" file = "c:\pathToFile\gallery.xml" output = VARIABLES.gallery>
