i am having an issue passing variables between flash cs5 and php ,, this issue didn't exist in flash cs3 ,even i used the same code that worked before in flash cs3 and still not working with flash cs5 :confused:

here is a simple example :

in as3 :

var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();

// PassingVariables.php and my swf file are in the same folder
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("PassingVariables.php");
request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
request.data = variables;

var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
loader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, Loaded);

variables.status = "GetInfo";


function Loaded(e:Event):void
// username_txt is a textfield in my stage
var variables1:URLVariables = new URLVariables(e.currentTarget.data);
username_txt.text = "" + variables1.username;

in php "PassingVariables.php" :


if($_POST['status'] == "GetInfo")
print "username=kareem";


the output in the username_txt is "undefined" !!!!

This is a quick guess, try putting an ampersand for username so :

echo "&username=kareem";
