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.

    The rubbish data generated...

    Hi there.

    I've created a thread earlier about the problem I am facing.


    To simplify the problem, I created another database, another table and another Flash form. The Flash form consists of only 2 fields: name and age.

    After trying over and over again, I soon discovered that when I use the "POST" method to transfer variables in Flash into PHP for processing, Flash is actually transferring the HTML tags, i.e. the properties of the input text box in Flash.

    For instance, I set my input text box to be font size 14, font face Courier New, alignment justified, color black etc. And in my database table, HTML tags that describe all these properties are there!

    Is there a way to get around this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. please tell if my depiction is not clear.


    Right! This is what I saw. And "john" is exactly the name that I used to test my flash form. All the above tags matches the properties of my input text box in Flash completely. How to get around this problem?

    I repeat: the problem appears to be Flash is trying to convert the content in the input text box into HTML tags that describe the input text box itself, wrapping the content (in this case, the name "john") inside it.

    Simply set the input text boxes' ".html" property to false... Sigh...
