    Some help...server side content in flash...

    So I have this PHP page and this flash movie. I want to make it so the flash pulls the info from the php file, (or if I have to convert it, to whatever I have to convert it to.) How would I do this?

    What you want to do is have the PHP script print/echo out the variables you want to feed into flash, just like you would if you were feeding the actionscript a text file...

    just incase you're not 100% familiar with this practice, here's some information on sending data to actionscript from a text file:


    http://www.actionscripts.org/tutoria...rs/index.shtml

    so your .txt file is going to look something like this:

    name=Samantha&hobby=flash&email_address=Samantha@guesswho.com


    To feed the same exact variables to flash via php, you'd do the following:


    PHP Code:
    <?php

    #
    # lets say this file is called "php_variables.php"
    ##############

    $name "Samantha";

    $hobby "flash";

    $email_address "Samantha@guesswho.com";

    echo <<<
    end;
    name=$name&hobby=$hobby&email_address=$email_address
    end
    ;

    ?>
    Now back to your actionscript, you'd do the following:
    loadVariables("http://www.yoursite.com/directory/php_variables.php", this);

    I'm assuming you have a good understanding of loading variables into flash from a .txt file. If l'm wrong and you need more assistance or help, please feel free to post right back!
