    Passing variables from ASP.NET to Flash

    I could not find a similar thread to what I've problems with and I'm new to ASP.NET and Flash and I am building an application that requires database and flash. I need to pass variables from aspx to flash. I looked it up and tried the loadvar method. i.e.

    In ClientMenu.aspx:


    Dim strFlash As String = ""
    strFlash = "cname=" & Server.UrlEncode("strClientName") & "&" & "ccardid=" & Server.UrlEncode("ClientCardID") & "&" & "ccpnts=" & Server.UrlEncode("ClientCurrentPoints")

    In fla:
    loadVariables("ClientMenu.aspx", this);
    onClipEvent (data) {

    flashClientName = cname;
    flashClientCardID = ccardid;
    flashClientPoints = ccpnts;

    The flash loads. The variables load into the flash swf. BUT the variables with its values also appear above the flash image as a single string. i.e. above the flash image, this string appears:


    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance

    Here's a solution which is by no means professional, but it helped.

    What I did was just to make it invisible using font color=white in addition to strFlash. The image is however still one line lower than where it should have been if the string wasn't there.

    i.e. response.write("<font color=#FFFFFF>" & strFlash & "</font>")

    If anyone has a better solution (calling all tech gurus out there), I'd prefer that. Thanks.

    Try using this

    Check this example which is given in flash LoadVariable Function Help -

    before this create "params.txt" file and save this in it in the same folder of .fla file :



    this.createEmptyMovieClip("target_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth());
    loadVariables("params.txt", target_mc);
    function checkParamsLoaded() {
    if (target_mc.done == undefined) {
    trace("not yet.");
    } else {
    trace("finished loading. killing interval.");
    for (i in target_mc) {
    trace(i+": "+target_mc[i]);
    var param_interval:Number = setInterval(checkParamsLoaded, 100);

    you will get an idea!

    setInterval is threading concept! just look at how it is done if u are not getting threading part!

    (actually in hurry, thats why couldnt answer in detailed...)
