Default Script to modify a database with user variables


I develop an application in Flex 3.0. This application deals with a database which appears on the application. Actually, the database appears on the Web page and under it there's a form which recover the datas. For example

Now I made a form like this

Well, when i click on the "OK" button, I would like to put the new datas in the database thanks to the flex app. I don't know how to make the script. Can you help me please ?

I've always had to do this on the backend. Meaning I use externalInterfae.call to pass variables to javascript which then handles the data and committing it to the db.

endergrls idea isn't bad if your used to using ajax, or the like, to talk to your server, but you can talk to the server directly from AS3 and mxml.

You'll need to use the flash.net package.. here is an example of sending data to the server:
ActionScript Code:
private function submiter(inp1:String, inp2:String, inp3:String, inp4:String):void { var holdresponse:URLLoader =  new URLLoader(); //the responsecompute function can be set up to do whatever with the server response holdresponse.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, responsecompute); //this event for if there is an error holdresponse.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, errorsay); var therequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("serverpage.aspx"); var varstosend:URLVariables = new URLVariables(); varstosend.oner = inp1; varstosend.twoer = inp2; varstosend.threeer = inp3; varstosend.fourer = inp4; therequest.data = varstosend; therequest.method = URLRequestMethod.POST; holdresponse.load(therequest); }

this is just a general example of sending data to a server within AS3
hope it helps a bit

in your mxml it can be included within <mx:Script> tags
