    Ensure variable from .asp loaded before used by Flash.

    Hello again

    I am loading variables into Flash from an .asp file using:

    loadVariablesNum ("http://blah.com/layout/info.asp", 0);

    One of these variables is called picnumberdefault

    I am trying to load the jpg into a clip called the picture by using the following:

    _root.thepicture.loadMovie ("http://blah.com/pics/" + picnumberdefault + "pix.jpg");

    Unfortunately this gets called BEFORE
    loadVariablesNum ("http://blah.com/layout/info.asp", 0);
    has had a chance to load the variable picnumberdefault
    so the picture does not get loaded.

    Is there any way to ensure that the variable picnumberdefault is loaded from the database BEFORE

    _root.thepicture.loadMovie ("http://blah.com/pics/" + picnumberdefault + "pix.jpg");

    is called?


    PHEW! Thanx.

    You might want to use a looped if-then-else statement to continually look to make sure the variable has been loaded, then when it is loaded, have the loop load the movie. I don't know ASP, so I couldn't give an example of code, but logically, that should work. Just make sure to set a limit on the number of times it loops.
