Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    How to Load XML ( dynamic ) only if the request is from Flash player ???

    I have been working on a small flash based dynamic application ,where a
    dynamic text field loads data from an external xml file (data.php)
    which is generated dynamically with php - mysql , i want the external
    data.php file to load the data only if it is requested by the Flash
    Player only, and if not it should redirect the user ? Im stuck here can
    anyone help me out ?? Any other logics are welcome , i just want the
    data.php to be accesable only from Flash and not from the browser

    You should use a header to see which page the request comes from, and also send a $_POST variable with the flash request (containing a "password") and then check that also before displaying the content.

    Note though that if someone really does still want to see your xml file, they can, it will just take them a bit more work...
