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.

Cheers,

Thread: How to run a php file from actionscript

    How to run a php file from actionscript

    Hey,

    This is going to (hopefully) sound silly and be a very easy problem to solve. Basically I have a php file that generates a .xml file. I want to be able to run this .php file from flash on a button press, or at the moment I just want to be able to run it.

    So yeah, I just want to be able to run the php file from actionscript so it will create the .xml file that I need so I can then post the images from the .xml file.

    Thanks in advance!

    This should do it:

    //Flash Code
    Code:
    import flash.external.*;
    
    whateverYourButtonNameIs.onRelease = function()
    {
           ExternalInterface.call(alleyOOP);
    }
    //Javascript/PHP Code
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function alleyOOP()
    {
         <?php 
              //Call Your PHP Function
              createXML(); 
         ?>
    }
    </script>

    You could also do this through loadVariableNum
