The Flash Movie of this tutorial is shown as above.

PHP File Codes:


echo "The variables sent from Flash ActionScript are: " . $_GET["candidate"] . " and " . $_GET["jobTitle"];


The output of the PHP file will get the name-value pairs variable from the URL.

Flash ActionScript Codes:

// Create A new URLVariables instance to store the variable
var myVariables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();


// Create variables (e.g. candidate, jobTitle) to send
myVariables.candidate = "Alex";
myVariables.jobTitle = "Flash Designer";


// Create a new URLRequest instance sending data to "myfile21.php"
var myRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("myfile21.php");


// The data property of the request is set to the
// URLVariables instance (myVariables) to send to the PHP file.
// Note: myVariables stored the variable (e.g. candidate)
myRequest.data = myVariables;


function sendVariable (evt:MouseEvent):void {

// Use the navigateToURL( ) method to send data to PHP file for processing
// Also display the output in a new browser
navigateToURL(myRequest, '_blank');

// Hook up the button with the function sendVariable
enter_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, sendVariable);
