Passing Session Variables Into Flash

Sep 22, 2001

I'm building a login scheme that uses PHP sessions to pass the key variables (i.e. $login and $password). into a flash movie.

Typically, I can easily pass variables into flash movies by calling the PHP scripts via LoadVarNum and using print to send them back.

However, this situation is a little different since the php session commands are actually part of the url that contains the embedded .swf. I have determined that the needed variables are in fact making it to the top level url but not into the .swf.

Does anyone know of an alternative way to pass the variables into the .swf (besides populating them into header since that would reveal the info in the link)???

I'm thinking that there may be an option in the embed command or something.

Hide Xml From Users While Passing It Into Flash

Oct 29, 2009

We have a little in-house LMS with courses built in Flash. Scores are updated and retrieved with POSTs to PHP scripts which query a MySQL database. All the course content and quiz questions are in xml files. Those XML files are easily accessible from a user's Temporary Internet Files (sort of SCORM style, for those familiar with it) and while you'd have to be pretty desperate to cheat at something like a Fire Safety test, it's still a vulnerability we'd like to solve.

I intend to move the quiz data (and eventually, the course content) into a MySQL database, then probably build the XML in PHP and echo that to the Flash course (as we've been doing to update and retrieve assessment scores). I think I could limit how and when the xml is displayed by passing hashes and shared secrets and whatnot between the PHP page and Flash, but this only limits outside access, and anyone viewing the course legitimately will still see the XML passed around (I think..).

Surely I'm not reinventing fire here. Is there a method or a technology in existence that allows the safe, discrete passage of xml into Flash? Ideally, I'd probably want to pass the questions and possible answers from MySQL to Flash, then pass the chosen answer back and do the marking server-side.. but time is money, and I'm looking for an answer that will require as little rebuilding of the flash framework as possible.

Flash - Passing Session To Actionscipt?

Mar 29, 2011

I know there is a lot of PHP and Actionscript questions here, but mine is a little differnt. I have a php website that uses sessions and if your not logged in you cannot acces a web page... I want the same for my Flash file, but want flash to see if there is a valid session on the php website and if there is play the flash, if not access denied..!

here is my PHP authentication that runs on every page
//Start session
//Check whether the session variable SESS_MEMBER_ID is present or not
if(!isset($_SESSION['SESS_MEMBER_ID']) || (trim($_SESSION['SESS_MEMBER_ID']) == '')) {

Javascript - Passing Flash Variables In Visual Basic

May 13, 2010

I have a simple standalone application written in Visual Basic that I'm porting to a browser based application using PHP/javascript. The original VB application has some simple embedded flash games with token and point counters. The token and point values are being passed as variables between the application and the game.

I'm trying to achieve the same effect in my PHP port without modifying the actionscript code( using the variables in actionscript that already exist). Below is Visual Basic code that's loading a value from a database and posting that value to flash using FlashVars:

Include Generated XML File Into Flash Vars While ALSO Passing Through Current Functions Into It?

Dec 22, 2010

In webpage.php the flashscript is calling a flash script with a flashvar: the playlist file which is a PHP generated XML file: playlist.php, it does that well so long as there are no extra functions in there. Now, in that XML-format playlistfile there needs to be a special function, besides the usual echo("");, namely the very special echo __(""); function that is already declared in webpage.php which needs to do something with the paragraphs residing within that xml file.

However, currently the retrieved file misses the function echo __();and says "no such function declared in that xml-format [playlist.php] file". The php functions that are currently included at the very top of webpage.php somehow do not pass-through-the necessary functions into the playlist file for it to recognise how to handle it, in order for that playlist to get those necessary functions working.

Apparently these are not passed through automatically/properly when residing in the flashvars?? Cause the echo __(""); works fine when called within webpage.php or via a normal php include(""); if those functions are in a different php file. But not working from the playlist.php file.

Pass Variable FROM Flash To HTML?

Mar 7, 2011

I have a rather simple flash application users can make a quick username when connected, and the username is created inside the flash swf.Now, I have a cron job deleting inactive usernames every ten minutes (on my mysql database where these usernames are all stored and accessed by the other people online) which is fine. But it can still get cluttered up if a bunch of people sign off at once, there is still that 10 minute window before the cron job clears them.The users have an option to click log out in the flash application which is fine and works great. But of course many choose not to click log off they just click the browser x.I've looked into onbeforeunload and jquery's .unload but I still need a way to get the username variable that's IN flash INTO the HTML, then use a php script to run the delete username mysql query.EDIT::::: Maybe is there a way to create a UNIQUE string of numbers with php then pass that var to flash to include with the mysql row then since i already have that var since it was created on the html side, just along with the unload, have it delete the row that has that unique id?if i used something like md5(uniqid(microtime()) . $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] . $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']) to make a random iD how could i go about storing the result in a var i could place in the flash vars param then again in the jquery unload or javascript onbeforeunload if that would be better . im just more familiar with jquery

Passing Multiple Variable Errors...last Variable Vanishes.

Jul 19, 2007

I have been trying to figure this one out for a few days now and it is starting to drive me mad.  I'm sure this is something simple that I have done wrong but I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong here. Some background.

I decided I needed to learn PHP, I really enjoy it but keep getting stuck on things like this due to my lack of knowledge.  So I set myself a challenge to write a PHP CMS system using PHP, mySQL, XHTML and CSS.  All was going fine (all be it rather slowly) until I tried to write the page to edit articles in the CMS.

I have the 'ID', 'title', 'venue' and 'article' stored in the database fine.  I can pull entries out and display them fine.  I now want to edit them using a browser.  So I thought I would use the same form I used to add mySQL entries and change ti so that it loads in the article into the form fields depending on the id.  (This is chosen through a link saying 'edit). Code:

Passing Variable And Building A Db Ejection Or Put The Variable?

Jul 20, 2009

The variables below are passed into itemdetails2.php

PHP Code:

<a href="itemdetails2.php?id=". $content['id'] ."&platename=".$content['platename'].""> 

In itemdetails2.php I pull the variables from the url making available through out the whole script in itemdetails2.php by:

PHP Code:

<?php $shoename =  $_GET['platename'];$id = (int)$_GET['id'];if( $id === 0){    exit('ID can only be an integer');}?>

After I make it available through out the whole script in itemdetails2.php I want to build a sql injection that takes the value of the variable $shoename and put it inside the OutputRating method parameter below

PHP Code:

<?php      $ratingData = Rating::OutputRating('paul');            if (Error::HasErrors())      {        echo Error::ShowErrorMessages();  Error::ClearErrors();      }      else      {        echo $ratingData;      }    ?>

Notice in the parameter it says paul instead of paul I want it to contain the shoename variable value in the url.


PHP Code:

<?php $shoename =  $_GET['platename'];$id = (int)$_GET['id'];if( $id === 0){    exit('ID can only be an integer');}?><?php      $ratingData = Rating::OutputRating('$shoename');            if (Error::HasErrors())      {        echo Error::ShowErrorMessages();        Error::ClearErrors();      }      else      {        echo $ratingData;      }    ?>

is that correct to put $shoename variable in there just like I did in the last embed script?

Flash AS2 - Saving Variable Imported From MySQL Into SharedObject?

Feb 14, 2010

I am creating a game which uses the sharedObject to save each players progress locally. It also connects to a central database to create an online scoreboard. When a user inserts a score for the first time a unique ID is sent out of the database to the swf and saved as part of the sharedObject data.

Absolutely everything works and the ID is saved to the sharedObject, however when the swf is restarted the ID does not load (even though the other variables saved in the sharedObject do load). I think it may be to do with the way it is formatted, perhaps to do with the XML but I'm not sure.

Jquery - Can't Access $_SESSION Variable In Called From Flash?

Jan 15, 2010

I'm having difficulty accessing a $_SESSION variable.I have session_start() at the beginning of the file.I'm using jQuery uploadify and it calls a php backend file, which can't access $_SESSION variables, although other files outside could.

Could it have something to do with the way that flash (jquery uploadify) is calling the php? Does anyone know how to circumvent this?

UPDATE: included session_id in the url but it didnt work.

'uploader': '../../frontend/jquery/plugins/uploadify/swf/uploadify.swf',
'script': "controllers/image_upload.php?SID='.session_id()'",[code]....

EDIT: i think i know what the problem the header information with livehtmlheader in FF it shows an error message:

HTTP/1.x 404 Not Found

while the other regular page requests shows

HTTP/1.x 200 OK

EDIT: sorry i've had wrong. it was not cause by 404, that was a request to another file. there is NO request when posting with uploadify! no html header is sent. i think it uses another approach to get the php file with flash (uploadify.swf). so there is no way of sending that sessid to my php file now i guess:( have to find some other way around

How do you pass in a variable via URL without a pre-built static array?

The script I'm working on right now passes the name of a script in to a download.php file, then it uses that to find the right row in a MySQL database marked with the same name, to add one to the download count and fetch the filename to download.
