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

Apr 29, 2009

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?

Aug 31, 2011

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.

Flash :: Data Integration - Xml.load() Failing - Passing All Of The Data Via A Query String Appended To The Movie's Url

Sep 5, 2006

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?

Jun 26, 2009

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?

Feb 7, 2012

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?

Jan 12, 2009

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?

Dec 27, 2010

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?

Mar 26, 2012

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.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash SendToURL Without Passing Data Or Variables

Aug 18, 2011

I'm working on an interactive quiz where the user's responses will be incremented to a poll in a CMS. I have a url that automatically increments the answer choice in a poll, so I would like to use sendToURL to call the url without actually passing any data or variables. It seems to work with navigateToURL, but that opens a blank window in the browser

Here is the navigateToURL code that increments the poll successfully, but opens the unwanted browser window

var url:String = "URL GOES HERE";
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
try {


I tried replacing "navigateToURL" in the first option to sendToURL and it wasn't incrementing the poll.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Passing Server Data Into Flash With FlashVars?

Nov 23, 2004

I'm trying to do a Christmas Calendar in Flash. I'm using buttons for the 24 days, that I want to activate depending on the date. Since I can't count on clientcomputers having the correct date set I want to use the date from the server and pass it into Flash. Now I found out on the Macromedia website, that you can use FlashVars as a ActiveX Parameter to pass values into Flash. So far so good. How do i address the variable in Flash then? Using a syntax like this PHPode:FlashVars="datum=DAY_OF_MONTH" //DAY_OF_MONTH holds the date I get from the serverin my html file, that's calling the .swf I should be able to simply use datum as a variable in Flash.
