Default is this making sense? I created two dispatchEvent s

I created two dispatchEvent. I'm trying to have a double safety on data retrieval. i have a dispatchEvent in contentLoaded and the last dispatchEvent in loadedContent. If i had loadedContent by itself it will still work. It this unnecessary? does it make sense to listen for a complete event and then launch another? THanks.................

package com.class.php
import flash.events.*;
import flash.net.*;

public class Grabber extends EventDispatcher
public var phpFile:String;
public var remoteFile:String;
public var req:URLRequest;
private var vars:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
private var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
public var data:String;

public function Grabber()


public function load(php:String, remote:String):void
phpFile = php;
remoteFile = remote;
req = new URLRequest(phpFile);
vars.fileName = remoteFile;
req.data = vars;
req.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, contentLoaded, false, 0, true);
addEventListener("checkEvent", loadedContent, false, 0, true);

//I guess i want to have a double safety to make sure I'm getting data
private function contentLoaded(event:Event):void

dispatchEvent(new Event("checkEvent"));

//data is passes to the fla file. it works fine
private function loadedContent(event:Event):void
data = loader.data;
dispatchEvent(new Event(Event.COMPLETE));

Hi, please post your code inside [as][/as] so it's formatted properly on the forum...

What you have does seem a bit redundant, why not just use the loader's complete event handler?
