PHP and ActionScripting

Does anybody know the right way to take variables from a text box(s) in Flash, send the variables to a php file, validate them with the database, and write them back into Flash?

I'm currently using loadVariablesNum(), but that doesn't seem to work. Please, no simple answers(ie. "Use loadVariablesNum()") . I have tried many different variations and this still doesn't seem to work.

You problem arises from the fact that flash does not wait for variables to be loaded. There is a delay from when you load the vars and when they are actually loaded into flash. For example if you load a var in one frame it may take a few frames for the loaded variable to actually be loaded into flash. By the time the variable is loaded it has already passed the frame that checks for the variable.

The solution is to have flash wait for a variable _root.done to equal "1" before advancing to the next frame. And you would set _root.done at the very end of your php call.

Code: Select all
echo '&done=1';

in the flash frame you need to create a container MC an put
Code: Select all
   if(_root.done == "1")
      _root.done ="";
