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.
<TEXTFORMAT LEADING="2"><P ALIGN="JUSTIFY"><FONT FACE="Courier New" SIZE="14" COLOR="#000000" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0">john</FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>
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...
