Javascript - Send Variables To Flash Using Flashvars

Jun 3, 2011

I have a flash player embedded on page page.php?user=john using swfobject. The player calls the xml file content.php to get the results. I'm trying to get the user name from the url id. and fetch results based on that. I can get the username on page.php by doing $_GET['user'], but how can i pass that to content.php. Having read allot of articles online, i did the following,

I'm embedding the flash on page.php using swfobject like this

<script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars = {user:"<?php $_GET[user] ?>"};
var so = new SWFObject("<?php echo $index->CFG['site']['url'];?>preview2.swf", "sotester", "1000", "400", "8", "#000000", flashvars);
so.addParam("allowFullScreen", "true");



Flash - Pass Variable As FlashVars Via SWFObject?

May 24, 2010

I am trying to take a PHP variable and pass it along to Flash via Flash vars. My end goal is to pass a string formatted as XML to Flash, but because I'm struggling I've stripped everything down to the basics. I'm just trying to pass a simple PHP string variable to Flash via FlashVars with SWFObject but something isn't right. The page won't load when I try to pass the variable inside of php tags, but it will load if I just pass a hard coded string. The basic structure of my page is that I have some PHP declared at the top like so:

Javascript - Send Currency Symbol From To Flash?

Oct 24, 2010

I am having many websites . In that I have to send some parameters from php to flash. All the parameters are getting correctly displayed in flash except the currency symbol. These currency symbols are extracted from db to php in form of html entities like(& pound;). I can't change the db as it will require many changes in all websites of mine. I have used rawurlencode in php before sending to flash but in flash it gets displayed as & pound; in flash. I have given space between "&" and "pound;" so it is not converted to symbol in the post . In db it is correctly entered with no space. Previously , I was sending directly by writing the object tag in php file and and writing the parameters in params tag withing object tag. It was working perfectly fine . Now I have start using swfobject.js javascript library of hosted by google for embedding the flash content. Now its not working ( currency symbol is not getting displayed instead it html entity unicode shown above is getting displayed.) . I can't change the flash files also. I have to handle it from php or javascript code only.

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:

JavaScript - Cannot Send Variables With Ajax

Dec 15, 2010

I want to send variables from a contact form to a php in order to get it mailed to me. the js looks something like this:

var shirt_style = "shirt_style="+$(".dropdown[title=shirt_style] .dropdownValue").text();
var shirt_type = "&shirt_type="+$(".dropdown[title=shirt_type] .dropdownValue").text();


I want the form_values2 to be send to me, but I cannot get it to work. I think the main problem for me is that I'm unsure how the php file has to look like in order to send the form_values2 var. the very simple php test-form does not work.

$mail = $_POST['Email'];
$name = $_POST['Name'];

Javascript - Calling Script With Ajax And JQuery / Send It POST, Not GET So The User Can't See The Variables In Address Bar?

Aug 13, 2010

Right now I have this:

echo "<a href='misc/removeWallComment.php?id=" .
$displayWall['id'] . "&uID" . $displayWall['uID'] . "&BuID" .
$displayWall['BuID'] . "' title='ta bort inlägg'>
<span class='removeWallComment'></span> </a>";

Its an icon with a link that removes the comment when you click.

Now, it goes to misc/removeWallComment.php and echo out "comment removed". But I would like to integrate it with my current site, so you don't go to another page to delete the commehnt. With this I thought of using an ajax call to removeWallComment.php.

Now as you see on the link it requires three variables, id, uID and BuID, and I want to send it POST, not GET so the user can't see the variables in address bar. On success it should just alert ok.

How can I do this?

Parsing Array Into Flashvars

Sep 18, 2006

I created a simple competition form in flash that allows you to type in a promotional code and it either tells you if you have won or not.

This works fine if I have only one promotional code, however if i want to have more than one winning code I can't as it takes the variable from the first or next highest level in the recordset

I think that I need to return some type of loop or array and say that if you type in either "123" or "456" either will parse the variable into FlashVars and play the winning sequence. Code:

Send XML To Script From Flash AS2

Jun 4, 2010

I have to send some specific xml to a php script (from flash AS2) that then sends out sms message based on the xml. I have been given the xml by the sms sender and have tested it via their live demo and that works fine. The problem I am having is getting flash to send this XML.

The sms sender states that it needs to recieve the xml in the following format: The XML Document should be posted uriencoded, with a UTF‚Äź8 character set as paramaeter 'xml'

Here is the code I have so far, I think something is missing maybe. I have tried running the swf in a browser rather than in the flash testing environment

var my_xml:XML = new XML('<xml></xml>');
my_xml.contentType = "text/xml";
send_btn.onRelease = function () {
my_xml.send("" , "_blank");

Flash Form Send Data ?

I had someone who had compiled my flash site as I have three forms integrated into my flash website on the left side you see a "Refinance", "Purchase", and "Loss Mitigation" but I had to do some edits on it and someone else had to work on it and the original person I can't get in contact with and I didn't have the original FLA file so something happens when someone fills out any of the forms to the data is sent! I receive the email but it is blank! I have several flash forms I downloaded to see how I would get the script to go but I can't seem to figure it out! The current script on my flash is super super long...(i'm sure a lot of nonsense coding in it) ..I am on the computer pretty much all day because of my work so if anyone can assist me, I will check for replies on here regularly and my aim is xxsassterxx1 and my yahoo is prznplaya4life .

Send Updates To Flash In The Middle Of A Request?

Apr 20, 2011

I have a PHP process that does a bunch of stuff and I want to send feedback to the Flash client that calls it, as the request is being processed. However, since I'm listening for the COMPLETED event, I don't get the feedback until the PHP completes execution (at which time all the buffered messages arrive at once).I tried using the PROGRESS event but that seems not to work (unless I'm not using it right).

Is there something to this on the PHP side that I may be missing? Or is Flash simply not designed to get updates from the server in a regular URLRequest..

JavaScript And Flash Incompatibility With IE?

I have removed the .SWF and it is working in IE as well.

Flash MP3 Player With Javascript Controls?

Jan 14, 2010

While the question may seem fairly basic I seem to be at a loss to actually find anything that fits my needs, which are:

Skinnable (although not 100% required) Controllable through javascript (start, stop, change track) Event triggers for custom functions (on track finish mainly) Actual documentation - rather that 'it can do this, but we wont tell you how' I've tried many of the free and quite a few demo's of the pay for ones. Wimpy Wasp seemed to be the closest to what I need but there is an obsession there with using a custom Windows app to set it up which is impossible as the files are provided dynamically by the sites users and it doesn't look like they want you to be able to create the code yourself. I have no problem with a pay-for solution if it addresses my needs, but free would be nice.

Tracking Flash Videos Without Using Javascript?

Apr 2, 2011

There are cases where shipping javascript code with your flash video is not an option. One of these cases is when you've bought space on a website to place your ad banner. In those cases I want to use the 1x1 pixel image tracking method on Google Analytics or Yahoo Web Analytics to track the amount of views on my banner.

I have heard that flash blocks any attempt to load data from a third party host (frankly I don't see why they would do that) which presents a problem.

I can picture several methods and their downsides

I could host the banner on my own server, counting the downloads. Unfortunately this would prove to be a tremendous load on my server when possibly millions of downloads would happen per day.
I could write a PHP script, hosting it on my own server, that when requested tracks a page view in GA or YWA. I could place a crossdomain.xml file on my server allowing the flash banner to request my script using a Loader. Unfortunately, the problem of server load still exists as my private server probably can't handle millions of requests per day.

Possible solutions are other tracking hosts that allow for flash cross domain file requests, or perhaps a method I haven't thought of.

Summary: The challenge here is to be able to track the number of views on a flash video without using any javascript. The problem is the sheer amount of load this would put on my own servers if I were to track using my server as a proxy. The best solution would be a tracking service using crossdomain.xml

Xml - Pass Variables From Flash?

Creating a flash project where users can visit the site, and turn off/on objects in a house (ie. lights, tv, computer, etc.) The next user who will visit the house in the website, will see what lights or house appliances were left on. Flash variables are passed to PHP, and those variables are saved in an XML file. (For testing to see what is being saved to the XML file, on each click --vars.xml opens.) In the vars.xml file, I see that the house objects that were last turned on--are saved in the XML file--BUT in the SWF file, ONLY one of the objects that are listed in the XML are turned ON. Only the last object that was clicked on would show ON--not all the objects in the XML file.)

Multi File Upload With Javascript And No Flash?

Nov 9, 2008

I'm trying to make a webpage that allows the uploading of multiple files at the same times. I will limit the file extensions to the most common images like JPG, JPEG, PNG and GIF.I've done some research on this and everywhere I look it's flash this and flash that.I don't want to use flash really. Especially with Flash 10, which disables the most common used method to enable multifile upload.

What I'm looking for is a way to keep creating more and more input fields, each with a browse button and then with one final upload button at the bottom of the form. Creating the new input fields with a Javascript is nog big deal really.So I'm wondering how this works. Do I need to give all file-input fields the same name atribute so I can use 1 piece of PHP code to solve this? Or Is there some way for PHP to detect howmany files have been sumbitted and simply put the code for parsing a file inside a for-loop?

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.

Flash AS2 Using GetUrl To POST Variables?

Jun 26, 2011

I have been tyring to figure this out for a while now and no luck. I have some AS2 code below which works:

var sendText = "../Flash/uploadVoteandFeed.php?";
sendText += "B=" + _root.JudgeBtext;
sendText += "&C=" + _root.JudgeCtext;
sendText += "&D=" + _root.JudgeDtext;


As I said, this code IS WORKING. But I would liek to modify to send "sendText" as post variables.I just don't like seeing the extralong url with all the variables in it. AS2 should be able to send this as a post var right? I need the flash to open up "uploadVoteandFeed.php" on release in the same window/page, in order to show the user that their vote and feedback was successful and do other things with PHP at that point.

getURL(sendText, "_self");

But like I sadi I get a huge ugly URL and I just think it looks unprofessional. the sendText variable string can end up being almost 264 chars, whcih is also the limit for URLs if I remeber correctly.

Return Video URL For Flash Player To Load Via Javascript?

Oct 17, 2010

I have a SWF loaded via a "swfobject.embedSWF()"

I use Javascript's methods to pass calls via the flash APIs: url

call.player.sendEvent('LOAD', theFile)

Using a XMLHttpRequest() call via GET to a PHP script I get a file url: url

Typing the URL into my browser starts the file, but passing the variable to the sendEvent() call does nothing. Why?

var response = http.responseText;

Is there something obvious that I am doing wrong?

EDIT1: Solution

I have gotten the generated url to load and play correctly by not just returning the video url with the XMLHttpRequest() but returning an actual xml file with the necessary parameters to work with some of the modules I am using.

<rss version="2.0"
<title>Example media RSS playlist</title>

I wonder if this is as obvious as it seems now. Can XMLHTTPRequest() only return responses formatted as xml files?
