Hi all and Happy new year,
I am trying to access a cgi script (search engine, that has been written ages ago and used to accessed by html form. I have no knowledge of cgi) by sending variables from flash.
Flash movie sits in the top frame and has a search box. The result should be displayed at the bottom frame once the search button is pressed.
The fields that was in the old HTML form were called 'terms' and 'hits'. My search box name in Flash is called search and this is my code:
getURL ("http://www.mysite.co.uk/search.cgi?terms='"+search+"'&hits=10","bottomfram e", "POST" );
The cgi script does display the right page on the right frame but it tells me that no search term has been provided.
I think I have to use getURL rather than send variables command as I want to display the cgi script in a different frame.
Does anyone done anything similar or have idea how to do this?
Thanks for your help
