Ok, Iím stuck here. I have a few questions that seem to elude me on the web about how flash handles asp.

1. I know how flash sends variables to asp via the Load Variables using POST. However how do you read those variables once inside the asp page? I have seen documentation saying that it is a simple Request.Form("yourflashvar") but this does not seem to work. How does asp handle variables that are posted from flash?

2. Can flash send and receive variables at the same time? Example: sending variables to an asp page and having that same asp page send a response back to flash with a result? If so how is this done? It would seem to me that each time you load the asp page, it attempts to run the script, therefore if you attempt to Load the variables in two different frames in flash (the input and the checking frames), it would run the asp page twice without correct input the second loading cause there is no POST. If I am incorrect on this please let me know :-)

thanx in advance,

D
