ActionScript 3.0 :: Passing Updated Data From Flash To The Backend?

I'm building a Multimedia Player front end and we have some action features we'd like to include. Some of the features are like: add to favorites, bookmark and rating.

For rating and add to favorites I just need to some how send a variable with the value to the server. Do you have any tutorials and or suggestions to approach this?

I don't need to know how the back end works, i just need to know what to pass in the flash and how to send out the updated variable back to the server.

Professional :: Input Data From A Frontend Site Into A Backend SWF, Pull Data, Then Send Back To Front?
I have a site with an SWF that I can put some metrics into, such as ZIP Code, Weight, etc.. then, it takes that info and gives me shipping rates.

I need to build a front-end site that I can have a forms page that will push data to the backend SWF, and then return the data back from the SWF to the front end.

Front-end -> SWF (Zip Code, Weight, Size) -> *Calculates* -> Front-End

That should be the flow.. So I need to send data to the backend, GET the data that it calculated, and return the results to my front-end.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Javascript Updated Data Into Flash?
Is it possible to "read" a text from a website that is updated from javascript like currency-quotes on this website directly from flash/AIR?It would be very time consuming to load the whole website each time. Therefore it would be nice to interact directly with the javascript.

Flash :: Data Integration - Xml.load() Failing - Passing All Of The Data Via A Query String Appended To The Movie's Url
We have implemented a Flash photo slideshow on our site and it works just fine for most of our users. Whenever the xml.load(success) returns false I have the Flash email me a debug report. For the life of me I can not find a common thread between all of these people having problems with the Flash. I don't think it's a cross-domain issue because it works for most people, and I have the crossdomain.xml files where they should be.

DataGrid Inserted Data Not Being Updated Fast Enough?
I have a multi-column DataGrid that I've populated only three of the seven columns with data. One of the columns are editable. The other three are not editable. What I intend to do is have the user enter data into the editable column. Once the data is entered, The other three empty non-editable columns will populate based on calculations done to the value in the editable column.The problem is that when I enter data into a row of the editable column, the data isn't being reflected as entered until I try to add a new row. Is there any way to get the value being entered into the cell right after it is entered without the user having to enter a new row?

Actionscript 3 :: Getting Updated Shared Object Data Without Reopening It?
I have 2 swf that will be loaded on a website. One suppose to generate a bytearray and being passed over to another swf.

The problem is that when I save the bytearray to a SharedObject in user's local file, the second swf doesn't get the updated variable value from the first swf.

I've set the second swf to retrieve the value every one second and it don't get updated until I reload the page.

I flushed and close the connection to make sure the data is saved on the local path and that is not helping as well.

I also considered using LocalConnection as well but there is a bug in flash player for mac that stopping it to work between swfs on mac. Left me no choice but to use SharedObject for my project.

IDE :: Passing Geometry Data To And From Flash?
Goal: To build an Internet Mapping Site (IMS) using FlashScenario: Using Manifold GIS for the backend. It is a full scale GIS software which easily outputs data (geometry and tabular) into xml. It has built in IMS capabilities, but theWould like to build an IMS using Flash as the front end, and Manifold as backend. How would I set up something where the GUI and display were Flash, the user interacts with the Flash (Pan, Zoom, Selection, Query(SQL)), have Flash fetch that from Manifold via xml, and display the new extent, query results, etc.?

So there would need to be geometry data retrieval and display as well as tabular. For example the user should be able to use a "Zoom by Extent" feature where they draw a rectangle on the map, it returns the coordinates of the box to Manifold, Manifold returns it, etc. On the other hand they need to be able to query the datasets (simple sql queries).I hope this makes some sense. I'm a noob in many aspects to backend so I'm just trying to get a handle on whether this is possible, and what backend needs to be implemented in order to make this happen? Would you know of a possilble better method? Silverlight, etc?

Flash :: Passing Data Between Objects/classes?
So i a building a categorized menu of different foods. I have a class for "categories" (buttons) which essentially will return a string "salads", "drinks", etc. I now have another class "menuItems" for items within categories and this handles sizes such as "small", "med", "large", etc. My problem now is that when i return "salads", i want to invoke an array which contains all the elements of salads, send it to menuItems which will populate the menu. So far i have both the category objects and the menu object setup. I just cant seem to be able to send the data that the category object is returning and pass it to the menu object. Both of which are added to the stage as shown below:

If there was a way that i could say add all these classes to one class so that they can talk to each other that would be great but i dont know how to do this.

Flash :: Passing Swf Data Between Using AddElement Instead Of AddChild?
I had this problem (Error: addChild() is not available in this class. Instead, use addElement() or modify the skin, if you have one.) and I followed the recommended solution:

// container ( IVisualElement ) for DisplayObjects
var container:UIComponent = new UIComponent();
addElement( container );


What I need to be able to do, is get the string Locale to be read by the Child swf.
