View Full Version : Post array

10-24-2001, 04:07 PM
Is it possible to post to a text file, the results of a array?

if this is from a flash player, do a search on the "fscommand"
if it is from a browser, your gonna have to learn some backend scripting like php,asp,cold-fusion, cgi etc.etc.etc.

Its from Flash 5. Thanks for the pointer though!

ad note that whatever method you use, flash willa utomatically pass your array as a comma separated string... unless you use XMLSocket

I'm working through the code from the E-Cards tutorial now... Dare say if I don't fathum it I'll be posting again! :D I think I'm following it so far and with some of my own tweaking may get there...

At least I know I can get it to read back!!! Its just this writeing to a data.txt file I'm having fun with! :(

I tried three diferent combinations, now I don't have an array, but also I don't get the variables to save to a .txt file... help me then you can shoot me if its something simple I'm missing, here is the "current" code...

on (release) {
uniqueID = Math.round(Math.random()*1000000);
if (layoutString != null) {
layoutString = layoutString + ", " + uniqueID + ", " + name + ", " + comment;
} else {
layoutString = uniqueID + ", " + name + ", " + comment;
gotoAndPlay (2);
loadVariablesNum ("data.txt", 0, "POST");
fscommand ("save", data.txt);

and here is the output from output window (this also works fine when outputed to a dynamic text box)...

Variable _level0.name = "Harkole"
Variable _level0.comment = "First Post"
Variable _level0.uniqueID = 193494
Variable _level0.layoutString = "193494, Harkole, First Post"

Help I'm going bald... fast!

OK I just found this script:

on (release) {
fscommand ("exec", "command.com\t/c\techo\ttxtInput\t>>writeFile.txt");

I now have two new problems :( the first....

Where in the code (posted above)?

The second...

What exactly does it all mean?


P.S Anyone got a wig?

OK its not playing nicly people...

Is it because I'm using Windows 2000nt SP2 with IE6 ???

woah nelly. let's go back a step. can you get a basic test case with the fscommand to work, with just one variable for instance?
if so, can you get it to work with an array?

10-26-2001, 09:13 AM
nope and nope.... I even found the code on a forum copy and pasted it in and nothing, then found another (long winded) version using the command.com and that failed as well, that was only meant to store a fixed variable not even a input text box, but when I changed it to see if a text box would work, naadaa, the square root of nought!

Any thoughts Jesse?

This hsould work jsut fine:
myVar = "someValue";
fscommand ("save", "myFile.txt");
it does for me, on Win2k, SP2.
Keep in mind it works ONLY via the projector, not via the browser.

How does Alapecha sound? (excuse the spelling)

Stand by for code test......

ok I here-by stand ready to be shot down in falmes.... :eek:

although no-one said this...

YOU HAVE TO BE in the published ".exe", its no good debugging, or publish preview... actually have to be in the ".exe" :D

if I was better at ascii art I would draw a big bullseye below, however you'll just have to pretend.... :p

Thanks for ALL the help people I needed it!!!:rolleyes:

It also feels like the hair on my head might be re-growing 2!

the SWF will do it too, just not in the Test Environment, which counts like a borwser for the most part.
