View Full Version : loadvariables from php

07-21-2001, 06:09 AM
I'm trying to load some variables into a dynamic text field on the click of a button with a php script, it works but only on the second click.

I've read a few other places that this is probably because the movie executes the line where it passes the variables to the text box before it's had time to receive them..

I then tried a while loop to wait for the variable and that just made the movie hang for a while until it produced a message saying that a script in the movie is slowing it down..

does anyone have any suggestions on how to structure my script?

here's my dodgey script.. (ie not the one that works)
on (release) {
var auth;
auth = "wait";
loadVariablesNum ("login.php", 0);
while (auth =="wait") {
status = "waiting";
set (status, auth);

you'll have to make it a frame's based loop rather than a scripted loop. see the tutorial on scripted loops which explains that they can't be used for these purposes. also see the tutorial on loadVariables interaction if you haven't already.
